A community kitchen supported by Meghan Markle was revealed to be housed within a mosque linked to 19 terrorists, including the infamous ‘Jihadi John.’
Back in November 2018, Meghan visited the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre to take part in a ‘cookbook’ to raise funds for the “Hubb Community Kitchen” whose proceeds were to be funneled to residents of Grenfell Tower, stricken by a devastating fire.
The aftermath of the fire itself was shrouded in controversy as many fraudsters seized upon the opportunity to file claims to secure massive payouts at the expense of others.
Thanks to an investigation launched by the Henry Jackson Society–an anti-extremism think tank–linked the mosque to 19 terrorists, including ISIS executioner Mohammed Emwazi, also known as Jihadi John.
The Telegraph reports:
Research by the HJS (Henry Jackson Society) suggests the mosque was once attended by three of the four “Beatles”, the Isil terror cell charged with guarding, torturing and killing hostages in Syria and Iraq. As well as Emwazi, Choukri Ellekhlifi, Alexanda Kotey and Aine Davis, all from west London, also have links with Al Manaar. Emwazi and Ellekhlifi were associates in London and it seems highly likely that they fought together after joining Isil in late 2012 and early 2013. Ellekhlifi reportedly fought with al-Qaeda affiliate Jhabat al-Nusra and was killed in 2013 near Aleppo.
Ironically, the think tank was opened by Prince Charles in 2001.
Among other things, the mosque’s imam caused a stir when he suggested that women who listened to music were prone to becoming strippers.
Earlier in the same year, Meghan was found making secret visits to a mosque in Westbourne Grove, which has also hosted Princes William and Harry, Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.
According to the Telegraph, the mosque’s Imam, Imam Samer Darwish, presents a show where he has previously condoned bigamy, suggested women should not pray while menstruating, claimed girls who listen to music are prone to becoming strippers, and said women must not cry when visiting graves.
Meghan, as a self-described feminist, may have difficulty reconciling some Islamic social customs with her feminist values.
Recently, Markle announced that she and Prince Harry would be becoming independent of the royal family, and splitting their time between the United States and the United Kingdom.
