A Muslim law student in the UK who downplayed Islamist terror attacks and claimed ISIS doesn’t exist has been appointed to a government committee which protects children from radicalization and being drawn into extremism.
As reported by Breitbart, Safia Akhtar Noor, 25, was serving as a parent governor (akin to being on the board of directors) at Yew Tree Community School in Birmingham when she made a series of Facebook posts following the Westminster Bridge Islamist terror attack.
Fifty people were injured including five of them fatally in that car ramming. Another person, a police officer, was stabbed to death by the terrorist before the terrorist was shot and killed at the scene.
Immediately after the attack, Noor posted: “Can people stop fighting on Facebook? Sadly people died in Westminster today but people die every day in Syria, Palestine, Africa, Rohingya, Kashmir. Need I carry on?!! Grow up and stop pointing fingers!”
Five days later, she wrote in another post:
“So someone got stabbed after the attack last week as a result of media and government claiming that SO CALLED ISIS HAD CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY
“there is no ISIS and these is no proof”
Noor was initially suspended and then forced to resign from her position at the school. At the time she was the Labour candidate for the Birmingham City Council, a position to which she was later elected (by 3,000 votes).
Now, in her capacity as a city councilor, she has been appointed as a member of the Children’s Social Care Overview & Scrutiny Committee.
According to Breibart, “The body looks over initiatives to prevent radicalization and extremism and has given guidance on the Prevent Strategy, intended to stop people being drawn into terrorism.”
The fact that Noor was even allowed to continue her candidacy by the Labour party after her comments is beyond moral comprehension. For her to become elected obviously speaks to her constituency in Birmingham.
But for Noor to be appointed to a committee which overseas preventing radicalization in children is nothing less than astonishing. If the UK wants to dig its own grave, this is handing them a shovel to do so.
