Trojan Horse 'links to terror’

Radical school’s parents leader has been to Syria to support rebels and helps extreme groups

A key spokesman for one of the Birmingham “Trojan Horse” schools, who is defending it against allegations of a hardline Muslim takeover, has close links to alleged terrorists, The Telegraph can disclose.

Belal Ballali is spokesman for the newly-formed Oldknow Academy Parents’ Association, which is officially endorsed by the school.

He is a mainstay of Oldknow’s efforts to rally parents and the community against a highly-critical Ofsted report being published tomorrow. He appeared last week on Sky News saying that claims of extremism at the school “beggar belief”.

However, The Telegraph can disclose that Mr Ballali has made at least one, and possibly as many as three, recent trips to Syria and fiercely supports what he calls the “heroic” British citizens, estimated to number 400, currently fighting in the country’s civil war.

On his Facebook page, he writes: “Why is the media criminalising our heroes, who have left the UK and gave up (sic) their lives for the freedom of the Syrian people?” Mr Ballali also criticises the police and security services over the “harassment that they deal out to those who return from Syria.”

"Don’t pressurise her to start the Islamising agenda first.
That will be a lot easier when she is respected as a leader."

Head teacher of Park View.
According to a former teacher at the school, Nigel Sloan, he expressed “mind-blowing” anti-American views at assemblies, describing the US as the “source of all evil in the world”.
The school denies this.

If you want to be on this right wing, monarchy, paleolibertarianism and nationalism ping list, but are not, please let me know. If you are on it and want to be off, also let me know. This ping list is not used for Catholic-Protestant debates.

In extensive interviews, multiple sources from the supposedly non-faith school said the successful secular head teacher who achieved the Ofsted rating, Bhupinder Kondal, was driven out earlier this year by hardline governors after attempting to resist an Islamising agenda. Three of the school’s five deputy and assistant heads have also left since Christmas. Staff said that Christmas celebrations last year were cancelled, subsidised trips organised to Mecca and children were told that music was “un-Islamic”.

One parent, Mohammed Zabar, said Oldknow was “brainwashing” his 10-year-old daughter, who came home “saying she’s been told her hair or that [girls wearing] trousers are un-Islamic”.

In December the school’s Arabic teacher, Asif Khan, led pupils in anti-Christian chanting at assembly.

Oldknow is one of only a few primary schools where Arabic is compulsory for all students.

If a nation does not have a nationalist government, very soon it will have a nationalist government from another nation.

There were hopeful signs lately. The nationalists did very well in the elections recently, and the Trojan Horse scandal seems to be getting the nation’s attention. Let’s hope it is not too late.

So sad that the UK has allowed its sense of inclusion and fair play to bring the seeds of its destruction. Just like the US. These animals need to be expelled.
