Cameron’s Cabinet minister and her anti-Israel allies

Earlier this month I wrote about one of Britain’s ‘leading’ political figures – someone who has attracted much in the way of criticism following her appointment to the British Cabinet by Prime Minister David Cameron.

Sadly, given the tragic events of April 8th, I was unable to publish the story and have waited until today to dig it out.

Baroness Warsi, a member of the British House of Lords, former Conservative Party Chairman and current Minister of State for Faith and Communities as well as Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, was given top billing last month at a conference run by a group that promotes a boycott of the State of Israel.

Moreover, one of the event speakers, Carl Arrindell of the Islam Channel, can be seen cosying up to Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, here.

You can read more about the Federation of Student Islamic Societies (FOSIS), the hosts of the event here¬†– and trust me, there’s a lot of interesting stuff going on here.

FOSIS’s history of hosting and promoting extremist, Islamist speakers should of course write them off from any government or government minister sponsored event. But Warsi and her team obviously couldn’t care less. In fact, this is almost echoed throughout the civil service, with a few serious and much needed exceptions.

Warsi of course is the woman tasked with representing Britain’s foreign policy in the House of Lords, discussing it around the Cabinet table with the Prime Minister himself, and according to her ‘faith and communities’ brief – with bringing people of different religions and backgrounds together. Fat chance, it seems. Especially with her familial connections in mind.

So with all this in mind, would be it fair to ask if Britain is about to monumentally shift it’s policy to being anti-Israel, advocating boycotts, being pro-Hamas (actually not all that unfathomable… sigh) and encouraging extremism on UK campuses?

Perhaps you should ask the Prime Minister yourself. I have.
