UK: Inextricably linked to controversial mosque: the secret world of Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE)
-- Islamic Forum of Europe in London's the East London Mosque promotes "Islamist" goals, training "advocates the overthrow of secular democratic government and its replacement by Islamic government," and whose leaders defend Hamas and Anwar al-Awlaki
-- Daily Telegraph: "the undercover reporters discovered that it was also a sophisticated political group with a structured rank system and hardline goals."
-- "Prospective recruits must attend training. One undercover reporter was told that she would have to take an exam and swear an oath of allegiance and ordered to keep her membership of the IFE a secret."
-- "The reading list for the recruits' training course consists of the key works of the revolutionary political creed known as Islamism, which advocates the overthrow of secular democratic government and its replacement by Islamic government."
-- "The key text, Let Us Be Muslims, by Syed Mawdudi, a high priest of Islamism, instructs recruits: 'The sacred duty of Muslims … wherever you are, in whichever country you live, you must strive to change the wrong basis of government, and seize all powers to rule and make laws from those who do not fear God.'"
-- "Azad Ali, the IFE's community affairs coordinator, was filmed by the undercover reporters stating: 'Democracy, if it means at the expense of not implementing the sharia, no one's going to agree with that.'"
-- "Several of its senior officials, including Mr Ali, until recently defended Anwar al-Awlaki, who is blamed for inspiring at least three terrorist attacks, including September 11 and the attempted underwear bombing in Detroit."
-- "Several IFE activists and officials, including Mr Ali, support Hamas, which is designated as a terrorist organisation by the British and American governments. Mr Ali advocates the destruction of Israel, justifies the killing of British troops in Iraq, believes al-Qaeda is a 'myth' and has praised Osama bin Laden's mentor, Abdullah Azzam."
