Islamic terrosim and Koffigate linked?


In an earlier post I quoted from The Sunday Times:

The Sunday Times (available on oline), 4 April 2004, page 7, "Scotland is not exempt from threat of extremists" article, 3rd collumn, 3rd paragraph reads:

"Dundee has gained a reputation as a fertile breeding ground for Islamic fundamentalists.

Last year it emerged that Norien Sajeel, a Scottish primary school teacher in her twenties, born and raised in the city, was also leader of Pakistan's Sister Division, the women's branch of Al-Muhajiroun.

In the wake of the Bali bombing, which left more than 180 dead, one of the eight suspects was Shamsul Bahri Hussein, a graduate of Dundee University."

So what is the connection to Koffigate?

The British MP George Galloway, who is implicated in the scandal, comes from Dundee.

Sure it is a stretch but it's Friday and I'm off to the pub.
