BBC ‘took terrorist trainers paintballing’and paid them to go on the field trip, too. as part of their reality-TV program Don’t Panic, I’m Islamic,:
The BBC paid for Mr Hamid and fellow defendants Muhammad al-Figari and Mousa Brown to go on a paintballing trip at the Delta Force centre in Tonbridge, Kent, in February 2005. The men, accused of terrorism training, were filmed for a BBC programme called Don’t Panic, I’m Islamic, screened in June 2005.
The BBC paid Mr Hamid, an Islamic preacher who denies recruiting and grooming the men behind the failed July 2005 attack, a £300 fee to take part in the programme, Woolwich Crown Court was told.
Bad enough, you would think. But it doesn’t end there:
Nasreen Suleaman, a researcher on the programme, told the court that Mr Hamid, 50, contacted her after the July 2005 attack and told her of his association with the bombers. But she said that she felt no obligation to contact the police with this information. Ms Suleaman said that she informed senior BBC managers but was not told to contact the police.
Brought to you by the taxpayer-supported corporation that refers to Muhammed as <the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
John Noonan notices that the activities at the terrorists’ camp read like something you’d find at a gymnastics day camp.
Meanwhile, I wonder if they coudln’t bother find law-abiding British Muslims that have completely integrated into society, and have them discuss the issues of the day while having a meal in a nice restaurant instead.
No word if the Beeb is planning further terrorist field trips to the laserpark.
