Moazzam Begg, outreach director for CAGE, spoke at the University of Exeter as part a National Union of Students campaign to sabotage government counter-terrorism measures.How feminist is CAGE?
It is just the latest in a long line of appearances on campuses by the group, which recently provoked horror after calling the Islamic State killer a 'beautiful young man'.
Mr Begg, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, spoke last Wednesday at the ‘Students Not Suspects’ event, organised by the university Socialist, Feminist and Islamic Societies in partnership with Friends of Palestine.
One student questioned Mr Begg over an interview he gave to Julian Assange alongside CAGE research director Asim Qureshi.Begg refused to reject stoning women to death and instead ranted about Gitmo. And how evil arresting terrorists is.
In the interview, Mr Qureshi stated that, if all conditions were met, a women could be stoned to death for adultery.
This is the same NUS, sections of which have condemned gay men for their privilege and tried to ban clapping because it's too "triggering". But stoning women to death is not triggering. At all.
