Following Scott Burgess’s Google investigation into Guardian trainee Dilpazier “Sassy” Aslam, the Independent—currently at warwith its lefty rival—has picked up on his story:

The Guardian newspaper is refusing to sack one of its staff reporters despite confirming that he is a member of one of Britain’s most extreme Islamist groups.

Dilpazier Aslam, who has been allowed to report on the London bombings from Leeds and was also given space to write a column in last Wednesday’s edition of The Guardian, is a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir, a radical world organisation which seeks to form a global Islamic state regulated by sharia law.

It is understood that staff at The Guardian were unaware that Mr Aslam was a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir until allegations surfaced on “The Daily Ablution”, a blog run by Scott Burgess. Speculation is mounting that it may have been a sting by Hizb ut-Tahrir to infiltrate the mainstream media.

The Guardian knows less about its own people than do bloggers. They should hire Burgess to run a staff audit. Wonder if The Agewill alert its readers to Aslam’s alarming connections …

UPDATE. Angus Jung in comments offers the perfect Guardian headline:

British Muslims Fear Repercussions Over Tomorrow’s Train Bombing

    1. Well, since Robert Fisk writes for the Independent, I’d say the papers are about even on the hardcore Islamist score.

    1. Does it count as infiltration when they’re invited in?

    1. Since the Guardian is so large with the multi-culti, where’s their BNP columnist?

    1. where’s their BNP columnist?


      I have developed a habit when confronted by letters to the editor in support of the Israeli government to look at the signature to see if the writer has a Jewish name. If so, I tend not to read it.

    1. Funny thing… by the Beeb and Grauniad’s own standards, these bombers really were insurgents.  When are they going to start using the right words?

    1. A columnist named Richard Ingrams wrote it.

    1. SoCalJustice — Nope.

      If you want to express your affection for the boy, though, there’s always

      And maybe this will work:

      He’s not in my big Guardian mailing list but it’s their usual e-mail format.

    1. “When are they going to start using the right words?”

      Damn right, they shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this Islamophobic name calling, ‘bombers’, ‘insurgents’ etc. They should call them what they were, COMMUTERS!!

    1. Why am I not surprised the LATIMES decides to pick up Sassy Aslam Guardian piece? They also edited out this line

      “We’re much sassier with our opinions, not caring if the boat rocks or not.”

    1. Speculation is mounting that it may have been a sting by Hizb ut-Tahrir to infiltrate the mainstream media.

      Since the Guardian is already their bitch, why bother?

    1. The Guardanista has been “infiltrated’ ever since it stopped being called the Manchester Guardian.
      One is no longer shocked by the overt racism of its journalists and indeed if one still were, it would classify the G as an unbiased serious paper, with a small minority of extremist journalists.
      Is the Guardian judenrein? I suspect not – there are lots of Antony types in its ranks, Suzanne Goldenberg comes to mind , with her Jenin Holocaust articles.
      Form the Guardian, A string of such distortions and perversions have emenated,-too long to list here but are available on various sites for all to read.
      But we should not be shocked at the Guardian, the BBC and the Indy, we need to get downright ANGRY.
      Since they have had an unaccountable role to play in the events of last week.
      Whenever an act of mass murder occurs in the western societies, we witness the following scenario.
      A brief period of grieving in which the events are described as an “outrage” or other non commital euphemisms, by all and sundry.
      Next we have a self flaggelation period in which rhe media spin the “did we deserve it “ line.
      Next comes the sanitisation of the perpetrators of the outrages. they and their inocent families are made out to also be victims and finally we are told that the victims themselves must share “some of the blame”.
      This is British Journalism at its best!!.
      And of course within the social guide lines of the labour party.
      England has become a rich and lazy nation that prefers to pay dane gelt to its attackers than face the issues.
      And we all know were that leads to.

    1. The Guardian does not need to fear a sting, it has already been infiltrated,in fact the ring-in risks being further indoctrinated by its trusty scribes.
