How a BBC charity funded the 7/7 bombers

This one’s crying out for Photoshoppers…

Really, there’s only one thing to type in reaction to this jaw-dropping report on how a BBC charity called “Children in Need” helped fund the 7/7 bombers’ jihad– and how the ninnies dispensing the philanthropic funds didn’t want to ask the (non-needy children) terrorist recipients what they were doing with the money for fear of offending Muslims:


The charity funds went to 7/7 jihadists’ propaganda videos, radical bookstore, gym equipment, and a rafting trip for the killers before the deadly terrorist attacks in London claimed 52 innocent lives.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Political correctness is the handmaiden of terrorism.

And Toynbee, as usual, has been proven right once again: Civilizations die by suicide, not by murder.

The BBC’s Children in Need gave £20,000 raised by the general public to fund the 7/7 bombers, it emerged last night.

The cash was given to an Islamic bookshop operated by bombers Mohammed Siddique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer who spent it on propaganda videos glorifying Jihad.

It also funded computers, gym equipment and the notorious rafting trip to North Wales made by the pair a month before the attacks on London in 2005, which killed 52 and maimed hundreds.

Relatives of those who died in the atrocity claimed Children in Need was hampered from asking about the money for fear of causing offence to Muslims.

Children in Need Chief Executive David Ramsden last night said he was ‘extremely concerned’ and ordered an investigation.

But he insisted the charity had had no idea the money was being used to fund terrorism.

The £20,000 was part of an award made to Leeds Community School in the Beeston area of the city

The school was awarded just short of £250,000, of which £20,000 came from Children in Need and was given between 1999 and 2002.

Along with the school, the money also paid for the adjoining Iqra bookshop, which was run by the bombers and was the first place they came together to hatch their plans.

Children in Need and Leeds Council thought they were funding educational work for local children.

Instead, according to Martin Gilbertson, who worked at both the bookshop and the community centre, the atmosphere was anything but educational.

‘They blamed everything on the Jewish conspiracy, they hated western culture it was like living with Jihad on a daily basis’, he said.

They and Khalid Khaliq, who was jailed this year for terrorism offences, were all trustess of the Beeston Iqra charity.

According to Mr Gilbertson all three made a point of persuading local authorities to hand over hundreds of thousands of pounds which they subsequently used for terror purposes.

Hey, while we’re talking about the boobs at the BBC, check who’s at the bottom of the media believability list (via Pew Research Center). With damned good reason:
