Bethnal Green Academy, what is it like?
It emerges that teddybear-cuddling Abase Hussen who had no idea how his daughter became radicalised had been indulging in a little light flag-burning and a spot of recreational marching with Anjem Choudary. Apart from that, Abase is the very model of modern English gentleman.
“Shamima's sister Renu urged her not to "do anything stupid", adding she is "our baby". Halima Khanom, Kadiza's sister, said: "Everyone is hurting."
Apparently they can’t stop cryin’ !
Sad as it is, the police caved in to pressure from the select committee and goodness knows who else, and actually apologised to this family for not preventing their daughter and her friends from running off to be jihadi brides.
There they were sitting in front of the select committee, all hard-done by and sorry for themselves, while all along they were deeply involved in the radical ideology that tempted their daughter and her friends to follow their dreams. Islamic State ahoy.
I don’t know whether this comes under the category of ‘extremism’ as defined by Theresa May. It’s their ‘norm’ innit.
Either way it looks like deception of a most unpleasant kind.
