CAGE Group is a UK Based Islamic Terrorist Organization

The ongoing activities of advocacy group Cage highlight the problem of militant groups hiding extremist ideals behind the face of Anti-Racism.

The small campaign group gained worldwide attention after it emerged Briton Mohammed Emwazi, unmasked later as “Jihadi John”, took his claims of harassment by the British authorities first to Cage. The then research director of CAGE Asim Qureshi said Emwazi had been a “beautiful young man”.

Mohammed Emwazi was a British Arab, the person seen in several videos produced by the Islamic extremist group ISIL showing the beheadings of a number of captives in 2014 and 2015. A group of his hostages nicknamed him “John” since he was part of a four-person terrorist cell with English accents whom they called “The Beatles”; the press later began calling him “Jihadi John”.

CAGE tried to shift the blame for Jihadi John to, of course non-muslims, saying Since 2001, the British authorities have systematically shifted the spotlight away from its foreign policy and its security agencies by placing blame for violence at home and abroad solely on Muslims. Mohammed Emwazi was, in fact, a Muslim.

The CAGE Endorsed “beautiful young man” was responsible for the following Religiously Motivated Murders committed, he claimed, in the name of Allah.

James Foley

In a video uploaded to YouTube on 19 August 2014, Foley read a prepared statement criticising the United States, the recent airstrikes in Iraq, and his brother who serves in the United States Air Force. Emwazi, wearing a mask, also read a prepared statement in which he criticised America and President Barack Obama and made demands to cease the 2014 American-led intervention in Iraq. The masked man then beheaded Foley off-camera, after which he threatened to behead Steven Sotloff if his demands were not met. The FBI and United States National Security Council confirmed that the video, which included footage of Foley’s beheaded corpse, was genuine.

Steven Sotloff

On 2 September 2014, a video was released reportedly showing American journalist Steven Sotloff’s beheading by Emwazi. The White House confirmed the video’s authenticity.

David Haines

On 13 September 2014, a video, directed at British Prime Minister David Cameron, was released, showing British hostage aid worker David Haines being beheaded by Emwazi.[29]

Alan Henning

On 3 October 2014, a video released by ISIS showed Emwazi beheading British aid worker Alan Henning. Henning, a taxi driver from Salford, Greater Manchester, had volunteered to deliver aid to Syria. He was kidnapped in Al-Dana, an area held by ISIS, on 27 December 2013.

Peter Kassig

On 16 November 2014 a video was posted by ISIS of Emwazi standing over a severed head, which the White House confirmed was that of Peter Kassig. Kassig’s actual beheading was not shown, and unlike earlier hostage beheading videos he did not make a statement.

Syrian soldiers

The video that ended with a shot of Kassig’s severed head showed the beheadings of 21 Syrian soldiers in gruesome detail, by a group led by a masked Emwazi. It was said by the BBC that, unlike previous videos, this one shows the faces of many of the militants, indicates the location as being Dabiq in Aleppo Province, and that this video “revels in gore.” Unlike previous videos that cut away without showing the killing, Emwazi is shown beheading a victim.

Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Goto

Haruna Yukawa, age 42, was captured sometime before August 2014. Kenji Goto, age 47, was captured sometime in October 2014 while trying to rescue Yukawa. In January 2015, a threat was issued that they would be killed unless the Japanese government paid a ransom of $200 million. Yukawa was beheaded on 24 January, and Goto on 31 January 2015.

The British Media have repeatedly called the group a Terrorist Organization yet the Government has done nothing to act on the radicalization of British youth.

The evidence shows that Cage is a pro-terrorist group
It’s naive to suggest that an investigation into Cage is unwarranted. It has a history of support for Islamist extremists, write Douglas Murray and Robin Simcox.

One of the Directors Moazzam Begg is a British Pakistani who was held by the US government in the Bagram Theater Internment Facility and the Guantanamo Bay detainment camp, in Cuba, for nearly three years. Even the Muslims thought he was a terrorist, he was seized by Pakistani intelligence at his home in Pakistan in February 2002, he was transferred to the custody of US Army officers, who held him in the detention centre at Bagram, Afghanistan, before transferring him to Guantanamo Bay, where he was held until January 2005.

The US authorities held Begg as an enemy combatant, claiming Begg was an al-Qaeda member, who recruited for, and provided money for, al-Qaeda training camps, and himself trained there to fight US or allied troops. Begg acknowledged having spent time at two non-al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan and given some financial support to fighters in Bosnia and Chechnya.
