He wont be taking this country for granted now.

What was he expecting from Sudan? To be welcomed with open arms because he was a muslim?

Welcome back to a free country, Mr Baghdady. We might not all be fans of the beliefs you share with your former captors, but nothing like that will happen to you here...

...for now anyway.

Ummmm guys... just a suggestion and a comment to add.
Magdy is an old friend of mine, for several years now. He is Atheist. His father is of Arab origin, and his mother is Polish Christian.
He is as far away from a Muslim as it gets. He watches Carl Sagan's documentaries and is love with science. He has a phobia against dogmatised religions despite his household having a past in Abrahamic religions such as Christianity.
So.. that was my comment. Now for the suggestion. I suggest you stop your presumptions which could hinder Magdy's genuine attempts at bringing down the Sudan regime in the background as he's doing his best to work with the British parliament amongst other governmental bodies and charities.
One article is not enough to draw a picture of the whole planet or situation, especially when sitting behind your desks or laptops eating your English breakfast with Earl Grey. No body is more grateful to be British than Magdy since he was born and raised here.
I'm amazed at your lack of integrity and compassion. Go back on the dole, that's your only hope for survival it seems judging from your IQ levels being sub-standard. Oh, my bad, I'm being a hypocrite. Was that a presumption and poor judgement on my part?

You're telling me he's no muslim, has a phobia of 'dogmatised religions', yet he wanted to live in Sudan, and is now campaigning for more Sudanese to be allowed to settle here?

Something doesn't make sense with that.

Ah. I can see where you're coming from.

You're not the first taqiyya spouting ingrate to pop up on here.

They're usually muslim until they want help.. whereupon they convert to Britishness!

A similar thing happens with West Indian mules...

Did you just call me a dole scrounger?

Well, there certainly will be a hell of a lot more of them if your buddy gets his way. As well as an increase in rape cases, violent crime, buglary etc.

Seeing as you're also involved in his plight, could you give me some insight into why the sudanese are seeking refuge in ISRAEL, of all places, and from their fellow muslims no less.
