Another of Anjem Choudary's Followers Sentenced For Support of al-Qaeda

If it walks like a duck....

A man with links to radical Muslim preacher Anjem Choudary has been jailed for two years for terrorism offences.

Royal Mail worker Mohammed Benares, 45, had terror guides showing how to make a bomb and detonator and how to handle an AK47 assault rifle.

Benares, of Saltley, Birmingham, downloaded the terror material from the internet and stored it on three external hard drives. He also had links with another radical preacher, Abu Izzadeen.

The documents included online al Qaida magazine Inspire and step-by-step instructions on how to make a bomb ‘In the kitchen of your mom’ using readily-available ingredients.

The court heard that Benares had attended a demonstration organised by the Muslims Against Crusades group( Benares at 0:17) in central London on September 11, 2011 to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The Daily Mail states in the bullet points state he had over 50 copies of "AQAP's Inspire". There are only eleven issues of Inspire though. So he must have had copies of various other al-Qaeda publications such as Vanguards of Khorasan, Shahamat or Al-Samoud.

Abu Izzadeen a revert formerly known as Trevor Brooks was recently released after serving time for terrorist fund-raising and inciting terrorism.
