Children in Need funded 7/7 terrorist propaganda?

#1
According to today's Telegraph thousands of pounds raised by Britons for the BBC’s Children in Need charity could have been used to recruit and train the homegrown terrorists involved in the 7/7 terror attacks on London, Bbsed on a Newsnight report

Telegraph said:
...£20,000 from Children in Need was handed over to the Leeds Community School, in Beeston, Yorkshire between 1999 and 2002.

...The school, which also received large sums from other public bodies, was run from premises behind the Iqra Islamic bookshop which the gang used as a meeting place and an opportunity to radicalise others.

Both Mohammed Sidique Khan, the leader of the bombers, and Shehzad Tanweer, the Aldgate bomber, were trustees of the bookshop and Sidique Khan also worked for a Saturday club at the associated Leeds Community School.

Sidique Khan ran outward bound adventure courses in north Wales which were used to recruit and radicalise young Muslim men.

Both the bookshop and the school were registered charities – the bookshop claimed, on Charity Commission submissions, that its aim was “the advancement of the Islamic faith”, while the school’s aim was said to be to “advance the education…of Pakistani and Bangladeshi” pupils.

They handed out DVDs and books about Bosnia and Chechnya and held Arabic classes in a back room, attended by Jermaine Lindsay, who went on to become the Kings Cross bomber.

They also produced a leaflet in the wake of September 11 blaming the attacks on a Jewish conspiracy.

A flavour for the books was revealed when police raided the home of Khalid Khaliq last year and found much of the remaining stock from the bookshop.

Titles included Zaad-e-Mujahid [essential provision for holy fighters] and The Absent Obligation, a book about jihad [holy war] as well as 250 copies of a booklet called the War on Terrorism, the Final Crusade...

You'd think charities would take a closer look at the people they are dishing money out to?

Unbelievable but quite resourceful of the terrorist though!

If the application looks in order, they´ll give the money.

We could set up a Military History bookshop and class - to teach British History to teenagers. Take ém away on adventure training in the welsh mountains and convince them to join up.

If we only mention the teaching bit, we´d get teh money.

Er. Scrub the British history bit. We´d never get money for that. Let´s go with history of Homosexuality, Racism, multiculturism or similar.

Just imagine how they would have twisted the story if they had been denied the "charity money": "Islamic Place of Culture Slammed". I have a firm and fair view to Equality and Diversity but it's time that other and by other I mean non Christian religious groups stop playing the "discrimination" card. We may be a multicultural multi racial society, however, we musn't lose sight of the fact that not all muslims are terrorist but it seems the now're days that most terrorist are muslims. So before we give "hand outs" surely we must do some kind of investigation! Rant over

Sure this was the case about three years ago - at about the time the Lottery Commission was inviting applications from all and sundry, due to having a surplus of money that was meant to be donated. Haven't got a link, but this does ring bells.
