UCL to host radical Islamic preachers

    A series of radical Islamic preachers will speak at University College London at a conference which will give "every Muslim in the UK a special chance to realise the satanic traps around them".

    The University College London Union (UCLU) Islamic Society is holding its 2010 National Ramadan Conference, entitled the Dunya Deception, later this month.

    Speakers include Jalal Ibn Sa'eed, Zahir Mahmoud and Uthman Lateef, who have all made controversial comments about Israel and martyrdom.

    Last year, Zahir Mahmoud was recorded telling a Viva Palestina reunion in Birmingham: "Hamas are not terrorists. They're freedom fighters, they're defending their country."

    Jalal Ibn Sa'eed was recorded saying: "Most of us are guilty… We selfishly live like the Jews who only care about themselves and call the rest the goyim, those who are damned, those who are enslaved to them."

    Mark Gardner, Community Security Trust spokesman, said: "CST is concerned that yet another campus event appears likely to promote Islamist perspectives, including mixed messages about terrorism and the potential for anti-Jewish remarks."

    The Board of Deputies and Union of Jewish Students (UJS) have called on the university to stop the event and impose measures to prevent future incidents.
