An Islamic news agency has reported on the November 27th conclusion of the Third Global Unity and Peace conference in London which was said to focus on “correcting stereotypes on Islam and British Muslims” and which featured speakers associated with the global Muslim Brotherhood. According to the report, as many as 50,000 Muslims from around the world attended the two-day event, organized by the Islam Channel. The speakers list for the conference included Muslim Brotherhood figures Jamal Badawi, a leader of the Islamic Society of North America and the Council on American Islamic Relations; Iqbal Sacranie, former head of the Muslim Council of Britain; and Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens). Also attending, according to the news report, was Sheikh Salman Al Oudah (aka Salman Al Awda), a Saudi sheikh until recently known to be a sympathizer of Osama Bin Laden. Prominent attendees included Egyptian preacher Amr Khaled and Jermaine Jackson (brother of US pop star Michael Jackson) and Malikah Shabazz (daughter of Malcolm X), as well as British government officials, including Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair.
