SERIOUSLY!?: Official In Charge Of ‘Interrogations’ Has Ties To ISIS



Following the recent election of London’s first Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, there were some who warned that he would pursue policies that would welcome fundamentalist Islamists to the city and transform it from the once nominal capital of Western civilization to more Islamicized “Londonistan.”

Based upon the history of a government official just named by Khan to be in charge of integration in the bustling city, that is looking more and more like it is the case.

According to Breitbart, Khan has appointed as his deputy integration mayor a man named Matthew Ryder, who has worked with a Muslim extremist advocacy group founded in 2003 to work on behalf of prisoners at the American military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Originally called CagePrisoners, it is now known simply as CAGE.

Ryder’s previous career in law saw him frequently challenging the British police and security services over their tactics and policies, particularly regarding interactions with Muslims accused of being linked to terrorism.

Though Ryder’s CAGE group attempts to portray itself as a moderate force standing up on behalf of Muslims falsely accused of having ties to radical Islamic terrorism, the group has nevertheless been widely condemned for its own ties to jihadism, and was even described by some leftists as being little more than “a shady Salafi PR outfit” and an “advocacy group for Islamic fundamentalism in British society.”

The group has defended many Muslims convicted or accused of terrorism, including Mohammed Emwazi, better known as “Jihadi John” of the Islamic State group, and has told Muslims in the U.K. to “support the jihad” in Iraq and Syria while simultaneously reassuring the British government that it shouldn’t fear British Muslims traveling to terrorist hotbeds like Syria to join the jihadist fight.

Ryder has also shared a stage and spoken alongside a former detainee from the Guantanamo Bay prison, as well as a man who has stressed the importance of supporting jihad, expressed his support for Hezbollah and called for “defeating the armies of Israel.”

Despite these obvious ties to Islamic terrorism and jihad,  Khan nevertheless thinks Ryder would be the perfect person to “ensure Londoners from different faiths, ethnicities, backgrounds and social classes are better integrated in a city that is the most diverse in the country.”

“We are extremely lucky to have so many fantastic communities in London, but there is no point in having that diversity if they do not mix with each other and helping that happen is a huge challenge,” Khan stated. “We have to strengthen the bonds between Londoners of every background and I believe that Matthew is the very best person for this important role.”

Sadly, this is just the latest example of how Western civilization is slowly being strangled and overcome by an increasingly domineering foreign culture that has not only set down roots but is flourishing, thanks to the “tolerance” of the illiberal left.
