Channel 4 Employ CAGE Extremist

C4 news islamist

Channel 4 has taken on a new training scheme employee for its flagship current affairs investigation programme Dispatches. However, someone at HR may have been slightly lax with background checks, because the new hire is none other than former CAGE press officer Amandla Thomas-Johnson. Aside from his work at CAGE, Thomas-Johnson used to be head of The Federation of Student Islamic Societies, where he was vocal in his support of Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian Islamic theologian who is best known for his support of FGM, Hitler, and the killing of homosexuals, Israelis and apostates. Amandla had this to say about the Irish government’s refusal to grant him entry to the country:

“Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi is a distinguished scholar whose views are respected by Muslims from around the world. It is a shame to see that yet another prominent Muslim figure is being targeted due to his religious convictions.”

Dispatches is known for its undercover investigations, such as its critically acclaimed film Undercover Mosquewhich uncovered hidden extremism in key British Muslim institutions. Guido is sure Thomas-Johnson has plenty of inside expertise in that area…
