Following up on the Scott Burgess outs Guardian staff reporter
post of last Monday. Scott found out that the Guardian employed Dilpazier Aslam, a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir, a terrorist organization banned in Russia, Germany and Holland. Alsam, “27-year-old British Muslim from Yorkshire”, was educated at British taxpayers’ expense. The Hizb ut-Tahrir organization, while still legal in the UK,
In this country [the UK] the National Union of Students has barred Hizb ut-Tahrir from its unions, claiming the group is “responsible for supporting terrorism and publishing material that incites racial hatred”.
Now the Guardian explains, in a long and self-congratulatory article, that they finally got around to firing Aslam,
On Monday July 18 Aslam was advised that the Guardian considered that Hizb ut-Tahrir had promoted violence and anti-semitic material on its website and that membership of the organisation was not compatible with being a Guardian trainee.
The following day Aslam told the editor, Alan Rusbridger, that he was not willing to leave Hizb ut-Tahrir and that, while he personally repudiated anti-semitism, he did not consider the website material to be promoting violence or to be anti-semitic.
If it hadn’t been for Scott bringing up the matter, a major UK newspaper would still be carrying feature articles from a member of a terrorist organization.
Good job, Scott.
