Abu Izzadeen (Trevor Brooks) Arrested Again
Trevor "Abu Izzadeen" Brooks
Anjem Choudary is claiming that Abu Izzadeen, born Trevor Brooks, has been arrested. The announcement was made on Facebook:
Abu Izzadeen has just been arrested by the khnzeer police. Please make dua that he is released asapNo official announcement has been made by either the British police or by Muslims Against Crusades, the group run by Choudary and Izzadeen. But other Facebook friends of Izzadeen are making the same claim.
Izzadeen served 3 1/2 years for supporting terrorism. Recently Izzadeen's website at Muslims Against Crusades website featured an article asking whether the assassination of President Barrack Obama was legal. This image of the President as he's about to be killed by a sniper rifle was used to promote the article.
If any one knows anything about Izzadeen's arrest, please let us know.
Update by Howie 11/03/2011: Express reports that Izzadeen was arrested for violating the conditions of his probation.
Extremists are known to be planning an event entitled Hell For Heroes – mocking the charity for injured soldiers Help For Heroes – outside the Royal Albert Hall.
It is the same location where a poppy was burned last year, prompting widespread outrage. Demonstrator Emdadur Choudhury, 26, who set fire to the poppy, was fined £50. It is understood Izzadeen, of Leyton, east London, allegedly breached rules over telling police about his home and work addresses.
The protesters, who have sought permission from police to hold the rally, aim to disrupt the minute’s silence held in honour of the war dead.
