Cage/ Cage Prisoners

25.05.2015 La rédaction

Cage is an organization supporting the victims of the “war on terror”.

Its director is Moazzem Begg who was detained in Guantanamo, then released without any charge being brought against him.

In 2010, Cage launched a campaign against Gita Saghal, Amnesty International‘s Head of Women’s Section. The campaign titled “The Problem with Gita” was taken up by all pro-Islamist left-wingers who accuse Gita it of being pro-American, following her repeated appeals to Amnesty to clarify its ties with Moazzem Begg, whom she accuses of supporting Talibans. She ended up quitting Amnesty International. However, history will prove her right when Moazzem Begg returned to jail in March 2014 for funding terrorist groups. He was later released.

Cage was recently criticized for supporting Mohamed Emwazi, aka Jihadi John. The latter was described by Asim Qureshi, Cage’s Research Director as “a handsome and sweet young man, the humblest person I know.”

The sponsors of the association include: Lauren Booth, Tony Blair’s sister-in-law who converted to Islam, as well as Massoud Shajeree of the Human right Commission. But also the Rowntree Charitable Trust, a non-violent Quaker fund (£ 305,000), or the Roddick Foundation. Both foundations have since declared that they are reconsidering their support for Cage.
