If British Prime Minister David Cameron is serious about investigating the Muslim Brotherhood in his country, he might want to start with one of his own government offices and a certain Baroness Warsi, who serves as a Senior Minister there. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) now has the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood on its newly formed Advisory Group on Freedom of Religion or Belief (AGFRB), which is chaired by Warsi. As Shoebat.com reported last month, The FCO is the same government entity that just last month announced that the Muslim Brotherhood could ‘operate freely’ inside the UK.
Tariq Ramadan, the maternal grandson of Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, has not renounced the group. In fact, he proudly displays his ancestry and speaks frequently at Muslim Brotherhood events in the U.S. As Shoebat.com has reported in the past, Ramadan is even connected to the Brotherhood’s spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Ramadan was named as the Director of the Qatari-based Centre for Islamic legislation (CILE) in 2012. It was learned at the time that the CILE rolls up under the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS), which is very closely linked to Qaradawi.
Shortly after the Toulouse Jihadist attack by Mohamed Merah in 2012, Shoebat.com brought you Ramadan’s take on Merah’s motive. According to Ramadan, Islam had nothing to do with it. Instead, Merah was – according to Ramadan – “frustrated at being unable to find his place” in life. As a result, he murdered some Jews.
The announcement that Ramadan would be serving on the Advisory group chaired by Warsi was made just a week prior to the announcement by Cameron that he has tasked the MI5 and MI6 with investigating the Brotherhood. Perhaps if he wants to cut his teeth on the initiative he just announced, investing both Warsi and Ramadan would be good places to start.
