Leeds University


In 2010, ‘Leeds Student’, the university newspaper, ran an interview with journalist Sameh Habeeb, who has a history of publishing anti-Semitic material, in which he made an anti-Semitic suggestion.[1] When asked if mainstream news organisations had a “hidden agenda”, Habeeb replied, “I think you have to ask yourself who controls the media.”[2] The student union stopped distributing the edition of the paper featuring the interview.[3]

Mark Collett, former chairman of the Young BNP, attended Leeds.[4]


Emad Bazzi, who has taught Arabic and Islamic Studies at Leeds, writes for Al-Tawheed Journal, a publication of the Foundation for Islamic Thought, an organisation dedicated to promoting the ideology of Ayatollah Khomeini. In an op-ed for the Sydney Morning Herald, Bazzi states that Khomeini sought the ideal of the “Perfect Man, which he came to personify.”[5]
