One of the most prominent contributors to the cause of 7/7 'truth' has come in the form of Dr Mohammad Naseem of Birmingham Central mosque.
Within days of 7/7, with Londoners grieving at the loss of life, Dr Naseem was given a public platform by West Midlands Police, which he used to express the view that British Muslims were not involved in the attacks. Last year the BBC's conspiracy files series found Dr Naseem distributing 200 DVD's around his mosque, entitled 7/7 Ripple Effect which propagates the view that Israel was at the centre of the attacks.
Such views do much to encourage portrayals of British Islam as irrational, reactionary and unable to face up to the violent minority in its midst. How interesting then to see Dr Naseem as a signatory of an 'Inter faith statement' on the recent Moscow suicide bombings.
This does not appear to be much of an inter faith statement - only two religions are represented, and the religion of many of those killed - Russian Orthodox - unrepresented. Of the signatories, two of the four are associated with Birmingham Central Mosque - Adam Yosef, and Dr Naseem, whilst we also have Birmingham's Green Lane Mosque, and the brilliantly titled 'Interfaith Enabler' from Birmingham Methodist Church - one Ray Gaston.
It would be interesting to hear from Rev Gaston how he thinks 'interfaith dialogue' is enabled by saying the Jews carried out 7/7?
