The shaven head and unkempt beard should have been a clue, but when gullible TV allowed Islamist Asim Qureshi of Jihadist group CAGE to describe Jihadi John as 'gentle' and 'beautiful' I couldn't quite believe the stupidity of TV producers. "You lying Islamist Dog!" I barked at the TV, in reaction to what was so obviously self-serving and exculpatory bollocks from a man who had aided Queens Park Mohammed in his bread-knife career.
Today of course the papers are full of Qureshi's Islamism and incitement to disaffection - what used to be termed Sedition in this realm. And also of stories of how stupid, gullible, naive and jejune agencies have poured buckets of gold into CAGE and similar fronts for Islamism. £305k from Joseph Rowntree. £120k from Anita Roddick. And it's surely just bad luck that the Islamists didn't also get half a mill from the Home Office.
This is personal - a quarter of Britain's 3m Moslems think it's OK for them to cut my head off for including a happy, chuckling Hebdo cartoon Mohammed in this blog's header. So until the buggers agree to fly a Union flag on every mosque and forswear every hint of Sedition, you'll forgive me for being suspicious of them all. And as my view - and words - on Asim Qureshi proved entirely justified, perhaps I'm not so easily taken in by liars as others.
