Cops & EDL block Islamist conference


THE SUN

By NEIL SYSON, from The Sun

RADICAL Muslims scrapped a secret conference featuring hate preachers Omar Bakri and Sheikh Faisal after it was rumbled by police.

They were due to appear by video link from overseas at the Islamic International Revival Conference on Saturday in London's East End.

Faisal was deported to Jamaica in 2007 for urging the murder of Jews, and Bakri fled to Lebanon in 2005 after praising the 7/7 bombers. Rabble-rousers Abu Izzadeen, just out of jail for inciting terrorism, and Anjem Choudary, who urges Sharia law in the UK, were to address followers in person.

Scotland Yard blocked a first venue, so the extremists switched to a second hush-hush spot.

But they called off the meeting after finding cops knew of that one too.

An organiser whined yesterday that their right to freedom of speech had been infringed.

He said: "The owner of the back-up premises was warned to cancel and not tell us till the last minute." Choudary, 43, said it exposed "a burning hatred" against Islam but vowed the seminar will take place.

The right-wing English Defence League had planned a counter demonstration. A police spokesman said: "We urge the conference organisers to work with us in future."
