Radical Islamic groups in Britain have been raising huge amounts of money via public donations, it has been released in a shocking classified report.
In a statement to The Times, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said, “In some cases these organizations receive hundreds of thousands of pounds a year. This is the main source of their income. Those giving may not know or support the organizations’ full agenda.”
Rudd suggested some of the British Muslim donors may have been duped by extremist outfits posing as charitable organisations, and said the Government would work “to encourage people to understand the full aims of the organisations that they give to”.

The report has generated significant interest, with much speculation that the Government is refusing to publish the report in case it implicates Saudi Arabia as a key exporter of extremism.
An independent report released the Henry Jackson Society branded the Wahhabi theocracy as “undoubtedly at the top of the list” among sources of foreign funding for Islamic extremism in Britain, with author Tom Wilson claiming his research “indicates that some Saudi individuals and foundations have been apparently heavily involved in exporting an illiberal, bigoted Wahhabi ideology”.
In the report, it was found that foreign funds were used to educate Islamists in “deeply conservative forms of Islam and [provide] highly socially conservative literature and preachers to UK Islamic institutions,” but the home secretary has remained immovable in her refusal to release the full report.
“Having taken advice, I have decided against publishing the classified report produced during the review in full,” Rudd said.
“This is because of the volume of personal information it contains and for national security reasons. We will be inviting privy counsellors from opposition parties to the Home Office to have access.”
