A charity handing out millions of pounds to mosques and other organisations in Britain is run by a former Qatari official who founded a website that instructed Muslims to hate Jews and Christians, The Telegraph can disclose.
Yousef al-Kuwari is the chief executive of Qatar Charity UK, whose work includes the construction of a new mosque in the north of England. He previously founded Islamweb, a website that issued edicts stating that it is “forbidden” to swear an oath to gain British citizenship. In June, it warned of Jews and Christians: “It is incumbent to hate them for the sake of Allah.”
Qatar Charity UK is the British arm of Qatar Charity, a Doha charity which has been designated a proscribed organisation by neighbouring Gulf states.
The disclosures come after the Telegraph revealed in June how the charity was bankrolling the construction of a mosque in Sheffield being overseen by a Kuwaiti official who claimed Jews orchestrated the Sept 11 attacks. Artist’s impression left – that will sit well with the northern industrial heritage and Victorian Civic pride.
