United Kingdom declines to publish extremism report, citing security

Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary, said reasons of national security and the amount of personal data included meant it could not be published. "We will be inviting privy counsellors from the opposition parties to the Home Office to have access to the classified report on privy council terms", she added.

Extremist groups are posing as charities to get hundreds of thousands of pounds in donations from unwitting British muslims, a report has found.

"Instead of supporting the perpetrators of these vile ideologies, the government should be naming and shaming them - including so-called allies like Saudi Arabia and Qatar if need be". 'This is the main source of income'.

Labour's shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said there was a "strong suspicion" the report was being "suppressed to protect this Government's trade and diplomatic priorities, including in relation to Saudi Arabia".

The report also admits that certain organizations do secure significant "overseas" funding, although where from exactly is not spelled out in the summary.

In the United Kingdom, this funding has primarily taken the form of endowments to mosques and Islamic educational institutions, which have apparently, in turn, played host to Islamist extremist preachers and the distribution of extremist literature.

Rudd said the government hopes to create more transparency around Islamic charities because extremist organisations were trying to "avoid regulatory oversight". "Those giving may not know or support the organisations" full agenda'.

Mrs. Rudd's only concession on Wednesday was to relinquish a two-page two page summary of the report on the nature, scale, and origin of funding for extremist organizations.

The review into extremist funding was commissioned by David Cameron on 30 November in exchange for Lib Dem support in a vote on whether to intervene in Syria.

Funding from overseas is an important source of income for a "small number of organizations" and often takes the form of support for highly conservative educational institutions, some of which have produced extremist individuals, according to the report.

The decision to permanently shelve the report has caused an outcry among opposition parties, with Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron arguing that extremism can only be tackled if full information is released, regardless of what consequences there may be for the UK's diplomatic ties overseas.

According to Rudd, the review proposes a comprehensive approach primarily against domestic sources of support for extremism, focused on raising awareness among the public and in financial services sector, as well as in grant making trusts and foundations.

The UK government has confirmed that it will not be publishing the findings of an inquiry into the funding of "extremism" despite declaring on Wednesday that it was the "best picture we have ever had of how extremists operating in the UK sustain their activities".

She said the Government would be directly raising issues of concern with "specific countries as part of our wider global engagement on countering extremism and violent extremism".
