Faisal Gazi was born in East Pakistan and brought up in Liverpool, Dhaka and London.
According to his own account Gazi has a background on the left. He says he was ‘politicised’ at Leeds University after ‘coming into contact with the writings of George Orwell, Christopher Hitchens and Vladmir Nabokov’ and that he ‘was involved with the politics of anti-racism and the far-left in the 1980s, followed by associations with Islamic mysticism, anarchism and rave music.’
Here he is spewing extremist anti-American hate:
‘For example you forgotten to include in your sweeping surmise that the
USA (a Christian Democracy) has been involved in 42 wars and conflicts
in the last 40 years. This is a record of violence unbeaten by any
country, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist or whatever takes your
It may be that you do not wish to include the USA in your statistics
because you are not willing to bite the hand that feeds. I can only
congratulate you then on your caution.’
However he has radically changed since then and become a neo-con – supporting US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, attacking the Muslim community and multiculturalism and uncritically supporting Israel’s worst actions.
