When asked as to why they allowed the event to be held on their premises we received the following answer:

Yesterday I posted about a group called Inminds (short for Innovative Minds) a group who thinks that the Al Aksa Intifada was a really good idea and whose boss loves attending Jewish/Israeli events in London.
Just in case anyone was thinking that these guys are harmless nutters let's look at their site in greater detail. Frankly there's nothing inherently wrong with having a problem with Israeli government policies it would be ridiculous to say that there was. It's calling for and celebrating the killing of Israeli civilians which is what is inherently disgusting. Those who destroy themselves in order to kill others don't deserve glorification by anyone and yet on Inminds we find just that.
In the West Bank during the Al Aksa Intifada there were posters everywhere depicting the glory of suicide bombers. With pride, stills from Israeli news, showing the carnage caused by the bombers were printed on these posters. They were underneath a massive picture of the bomber carrying a weapon and calling on others to do the same.
Inminds love glorifying terror attacks, I know that they do because they told me. they told you too and anyone else who would care to listen. Some people don't care to listen, some people just hear what they want to hear.
At the start of the Al Aksa Intifada an 18 year old Palestinian girl walked into a supermarket and blew herself up. Other than herself she killed 2 others, the security guard who attempted to stop her and 17 year old Rachel Levy. Follow the link below to see what Inminds have to say about this attack. Brace yourself, you will see the true message of Inminds. Remember, no one is listening to them, people like those at the meeting celebrating the anniversary of the Al Aksa Intifada are seeing what they want to see. Unlike at Inminds who simply advocate more of the same.
Here is the second paragraph:
You can find the full text here: IN PRAISE OF SUICIDE BOMBERS
According to Newsweek magazine her family were not so supportive of her murder, particularly her fiance:
Akhras' fiance did not approve of violence and would have stopped her if he had known her plan. "May God forgive her for what she has done," he reportedly said. Other members of Akhras' family, which was educated and moderate, condemned suicide bombings as morally wrong."
Actually it's quite tough to gauge what the real truth is here as she did have a number of relatives involved in terror attacks. One possible source of her motivation was an interesting one not mentioned by Inminds:
Another motivation may have been fear of honor killing. The Jerusalem police investigation found fetal remains; the pathology identified Ahras to have been pregnant.This particular attack touched a lot of hearts in Israel due to the parallels of an 18 year old Palestinian girl murdering a 17 year old Israeli girl even leading to a documentary being made about it.
"Rachel Levy's mother and Akhras' mother have both featured in the HBO documentary To Die in Jerusalem about the effects of the bombing on their families."
Read the Wiki page, which paints an entirely different picture of the results of her devastation
Okay so the thing is that these guys are a bunch of nutters sitting on the fringe and no one listens to them, right? I'll buy that, but what happens when Inminds are here providing posters for those boycotting Ahava in London. Does the woman holding this flag actually know the kinds of vitriol that these guys are spewing? How long does it take from being on the fringe of the movement and carrying a flag to becoming twisted enough to spew the same vitriol yourself?

|Politely discussing the killing of civilians in Israel|
There are groups who support the Palestinian cause and the BDS movement in the name of justice and human rights (along with a whole load of other nice sounding things). Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the start of the Al Aksa Intifada is a pretty extreme thing even for them. Especially since the murder and terrorising of civilians is utterly opposed to the core values of human decency that these groups claim to hold in such high regard.
A typical case in point is the third of series of 3 events held jointly by Inminds and Sukant Chandan's group the Sons of Malcolm. Gene wrote about the second of these events at the time, it was held in the Venezuelan embassy for some reason. Regular readers will be familiar with Inminds but just to refresh your memory Lucy Lips wrote a great expose of the man who runs it, Abas Panjwani, someone who simply seems to love turning up at Jewish community events and taking pictures. Sukant Chandan is also no stranger to followers of Harry's Place and quite frankly is such a twisted nutter that I don't even know where to begin when talking about him, oh yeah I do, check out his latest antics here. He has also spent the last couple of weeks lavishing praise on Gaddafi as the latest victim of Western imperialism on his blog
So these are the organisers of the 3 events that started on October the 2nd and finished on the 21st of March and salute the Al Aksa Intifada. The first event was entitled "We will not liberate Palestine, Palestine is liberating us" the second "Outbreak of the Intifada, turning back the empire," was held on November 6th and the 3rd was billed as a "Symposium saluting the 10th anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Intifada and Palestinian women's unique role in that ongoing struggle".
Speakers included such enlightened figures as Ramzy Baroud, Yvonne Ridley, Ewa Jasiewcz and Sukant Chandan." A grand total of about 40 minutes out of a 2h 30 min meeting was spent talking about terrorists who happen to be female and the rest a general mix of conspiracy theory nonsense and hate towards Israel. You can find the whole thing on youtube here.
