Anwar al-Awlaki by teleconference in Londonistan

Somebody calling himself "Noor Pro Media" is advertising a roundup to be held on 1 January at the East London Mosque. They claim that Anwar al-Awlaki will appear in a lecture that was recorded specifically for this event, and will be available to answer questions by telephone. These Londonistani festivals are largely ignored nowadays even by the local tabloids, but not this one, owing I'm sure to al-Awlaki's involvement in it.
The Telegraph on 2008.12.27.

Lately al-Awlaki has been doing some English-language recruiting work on behalf the Shabaab movement in Somalia. Al-Awlaki himself is probably in Yemen, as he claims, but since he is not being specific, I would guess he is back in the Al-Eman University cult compound in Sana'a, run by the al-Qai'da financier and recruiter Abdul-Majid az-Zindani.
