Azzam Tamimi

Azzam  Tamimi
 

 

Azzam  Tamimi is a British academic from Palestinian descent. He was born in 1955 in Hebron in the Palestinian West Bank, then a part of the Jordanian Kingdome. In 1965 his family immigrated to Kuwait. Azzam  Tamimi arrived to UK in the late 70s’ and with time he and his family became British citizens.

 

From 1980-1985, Azzam  Tamimi worked as a media monitor and news analyst at the U.S. government's Foreign Broadcast Information Service. In 1982, while staying for a season in Bahrain, Azzam  Tamimi got acquainted with Ahmed Said Khadr and under his influence Ahmed Said Khadr turned to be associated with Islamic charities and ended as an Islamic militant.

 

Between the years 1990-1991, when the first Palestinian Intifada (Uprising) took place in the West Bank, Azzam  Tamimi directed the Parliamentary Office of the Islamic Movement in Jordan.

 

In 1992 Azzam  Tamimi headed the Liberty for the Muslim World Institute in London, and was also a researcher for The Center for the Study of Democracy at Westminster University. He obtained a PhD in 1998 at Westminster University.

 

In the post 9/11 period of time Dr. Azzam  Tamimi became a sharp criticizer of what the Americans named “War on terror” and an advocate of suicide bomber attacks in certain circumstances. Dr. Azzam  Tamimi argued that "the war on terrorism" was a war on Islam, and said, "We are Muslims in Europe, not European Muslims... being fair and just means finding the middle path. The middle path is not rubbing shoulders with Tony Blair and George Bush which is a belief which most normal people would believe, due to the numerous people killed in the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the ongoing support for the illegal invasion of Palestine."
 

In 11/2004 Azzam  Tamimi told the BBC that he was prepared to be a suicide bomber if needed. He said that "sacrificing myself for Palestine was a noble cause. It is the straight way to pleasing my God and I would do it if I had the opportunity".

 

Azzam  Tamimi was a visiting professor at Kyoto University (2004) and Nagoya University (2006) in Japan. He published several books, the most recent of which was on Islam and democracy.    

 

Today (05/2008) Dr. Azzam  Tamimi is director of "Institute of Islamic Political Thought" in London and is described by many as the "Western Intellectual" interface of the Hamas.
