CAGE Spokesman at Extremist Rally: “Support the Jihad of Our Brothers!”

 

Asim Qureshi, the “research director” at “human rights” organisation CAGE, is all over the airwaves describing Jihadi John as a “victim” this afternoon. This video from 2006 shows Qureshi, when he had hair, addressing a Hizb Ut-Tahrir rally outside the US Embassy:

“We have no fear. So when we see the example of our brothers and sisters fighting in Chechyna, Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, then we know where the example lies. When we see Hezbollah defeating the armies of Israel we know what the solution is and where the victory lies. We know that it is incumbent upon all of us to support the jihad of our brothers and sisters in these countries when they are facing the oppression of the west. Allahu akbar! Allahu akbar!”

Two separate, independent sources have confirmed to Guido that this is Qureshi. Remarkable that this man is doing the rounds in broadcast studios tonight…
