Police watch while GP exposed by the Mail on Sunday urges Gaza’s Arab neighbours to attack Israel

  • A family doctor has been revealed as the leader of an extremist Islamic group

An NHS family doctor exposed as the leader of an extremist Islamic group by The Mail on Sunday yesterday called on ‘Muslim armies’ to invade Gaza and ‘liberate Palestine from the Zionists’ at a rally in central London.

In an inflammatory speech to supporters – in front of dozens of police officers – Abdul Wahid appealed for Gaza’s Arab neighbours to attack Israel, saying: ‘A state-level military massacre on a civilian population demands a state-level military intervention to rescue the people of Gaza and liberate Palestine.’

Two women attending the rally by the Hizb-ut-Tahrir (HT) group were later arrested by Met Police for carrying offensive placards in Arabic. A police spokesman said they were being held for racially aggravated public order offences. One of the signs is understood to have read: ‘How beautiful it is to be a soldier of God.’

The rally of around 300 supporters outside the Egyptian embassy was held just four weeks after the MoS revealed that Abdul Wahid – as he calls himself in his role as HT leader – is really Dr Wahid Shaida, a senior GP in Harrow, west London, with responsibility for mentoring newly-qualified doctors.

Following the Hamas terror attack on October 7, Dr Shaida celebrated the atrocity by saying Israel had received a ‘very welcome punch on the nose’. His group also caused outrage last month after supporters chanted ‘jihad’ during another pro-Palestine rally outside the Egyptian embassy.

The Met was criticised at the time for not acting, and officers claimed there were different meanings of the word other than calling for a Holy War.

Yesterday, there were no shouts of ‘jihad’ heard from the crowd, who repeatedly shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is Great).

Police made further arrests in London at a much larger demonstration organised by the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, attended by tens of thousands of activists from across Britain.

Before the march, officers handed out leaflets to the protesters warning of arrest for offensive chants and placards.

Two were arrested for ‘inviting support for a proscribed organisation’, after they were spotted wearing green headbands with Arabic writing on them in the style of Hamas terrorists.

Four more were taken away by police for distributing anti-Semitic leaflets that featured the image of a swastika inside the Jewish Star of David.

Other protesters carried placards that likened Hamas terrorists to ‘freedom fighters’ such as Nelson Mandela.

One held a sign that called Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu a ‘terrorist,’ and pictured him alongside Hitler.

Elsewhere, a demonstrator carried a crudely made cross with a crucified Palestinian attached to it, in an apparent reference to the anti-Semitic trope about the Jews killing Jesus. Another sign bore the message ‘Free Palestine. Stop doing what Hitler did to you’.

Protesters chanted the controversial lines ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’, which Jewish groups have said is a call for Israel’s destruction.

Among those seen chanting the slogan were young children brought to the march by their parents.

Last night, the Met said that in all 18 people were arrested in the two pro-Palestinian protests in Central London – including one man in Trafalgar Square for the possession of a knife.
