It is all kicking off at a press conference hosted by CAGE, the “independent advocacy organisation”, this afternoon. CAGE has admitted to mentoring Mohammed Emwazi, the man today exposed as Jihadi John. In an extraordinary statement they claim Jihadi John is:
“a victim… extremely kind, gentle, the most humble person… a beautiful young man”
Guido can reveal that in 2012 the Shadow Justice Secretary and London mayor hopeful Sadiq Khan spoke at a CAGE event in parliament alongside the father of Babar Ahmad. Ahmad was later convicted of supporting Islamic terrorists and sentenced to 12 and a half years in prison. CAGE organised the “Demonstration for Babar Ahmad”, with Khan on the list of speakers. It is worth reading this article by Douglas Murray about how CAGE is a “pro-terrorist group”. What on earth was a man who wants to be Justice Secretary, or even London mayor, doing consorting with apologists for terrorists?
