3 Sentenced for Trying to Enforce Sharia in UK
This is good news:
Three members of a so-called 'Muslim Patrol' were today jailed at the Old Bailey for repeatedly trying to enforce Sharia law in East London.One of the dudes sentenced was often seen with Anjem Choudary (look for an albino looking kid with a shaggy red beard -- that's him). Another is well known online for his jihadi videos produced for Choudary's now defunct "shariah7UK" group. The last one wasn't name for some "legal" reasons. I assume it is because he's a minor.
Jordan Horner and another Islamic extremist told one couple they could not hold hands while walking down the street, because it was in a 'Muslim area'.
The radicals also attacked a group of men drinking in the road, and told a woman she would face 'hell fire' because of the way she was dressed.

Robert Spencer & Pamela Geller Banned From UK For Supporting Israel
The British government tried to cover its tracks. But a new cache of documents Robert Spencer and I have received in our battle to overturn our being banned from Britain reveal that a chief reason why we were banned from the country was because we strongly support Israel. As part of our lawsuit against the Queen of England and the Home Secretary et al, we have received numerous documents between the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Office of Security and Counterterrorism, and the Home Secretary. In one of them, an official in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office whose name was redacted wrote this letter on May 7 to a recipient whose name was also redacted:
I have received initial feedback from Post to say that they do not expect that there would be any reaction from the US Administration to these exclusions.
We do have concerns with some of the reasoning in the sub, particularly citing pro-Israeli views and. [sic] Pro-Israeli views (and also support for waterboarding) apply to a large number of Americans, including former Presidents. If, for instance, Geller and Spencer were to request details of their exclusion under FOI/DPA or other mechanism, that being pro-Israeli is cited as a reason may be problematic and they could argue publically that their exclusion is on the basis of their support for Israel.
The UK has officially become antisemitic. If it finds Israeli supporters more objectionable than Islamist immigrants, then the United Kingdom is truly lost, the first major casualty in Islam's war against the West.

Radicalized Muslim Convert + Gunless Cops = Standoff
Muslim convert brings knife to .... fistfight?
The mother of a Muslim convert who allegedly went on a knife rampage in a busy street described today how he had been changed by religion.I've never understood the British when it comes to guns. I was talking to a cop one day in the UK and just the word "gun" seems to make them uncomfortable. You would have thought I had asked him whether or not he'd been molested as a child. I'd say gun is a four letter word in the UK, except that in some parts of Britain f*ck seems to be the only adjective in their entire vocabulary.
The suspect was heard chanting about killing “non-believers” shortly before it is alleged that he launched a frenzied knife attack on police officers near Clapham Junction station.
Armed with four knives, the 31-year-old caused terror and panic among shoppers and pedestrians as he ran amok for more than 20 minutes before being brought down by police Tasers.
So, gun is worse than a four letter word in the UK.
And having successfully rid most of the island of the dreaded g-word, the police turned to more pressing matters: like ridding the masses of knives.
No joke. Plastered all over every precinct headquarters in the UK are propaganda posters about stopping "knife crimes".
In some place slippery slope isn't a logical fallacy. It's a way of life.
Thanks to Rahm.

Two Brits Charged w/ Jihad Training in Syria
A follow up to the story that two Brits had been arrested while returning from jihad in Syria. The two have now been named publicly and formerly charged. The next stage with be another preliminary hearing at the end of next month.
It appears that they were returning home with five rounds from an AK-47, probably souvenirs. But check out what online magazine written by a now deceased North Carolinian who once threatened my life was on their computer:
Two brothers who were stopped by police in Dover have appeared in court accused of travelling to a terrorist training camp in Syria.I like how they hid the sim card in the Quran. You know, because if the authorities touched it then .... Islamophbia! Quran desecration! Blasphemy!
Mohommod Hassin Nawaz, 29, and his sibling Hamza Nawaz, 22, were arrested at the port last Monday after travelling from Calais in France, when police found five rounds of ammunition for an AK-type gun allegedly in their possession.
It is alleged that officers who stopped the car they were in also found a balaclava, some "heavy-duty clothing", six mobile phones and a sim card inside a Qur'an.....
Mohommod Nawaz is also accused of being in possession of a laptop containing "information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism". It is claimed that this includes four copies of the al-Qaida magazine Inspire.

2 Suspected Terrorists Arrested Entering UK
The two are British citizens of Pakistani heritage and were arrested as they were getting off the ferry from France at Dover. It looks like they were involved in something overseas (Syria?):
Two British men were being questioned tonight on suspicion of plotting terrorism abroad after they were arrested entering the UK.That was stupid, bringing some ammo back from Syria.
The pair, aged 22 and 29 and understood to be of Pakistani heritage, were detained at Dover after arriving from Calais.
Ammunition was seized during the arrests, which triggered raids on an East London property and two vehicles, Scotland Yard said.
On the one hand, when our extremists go overseas we benefit in two ways: One, they are likely to get themselves killed meaning one less extremist for us to deal with; Two, they are SEP (Somebody Else's Problem).
On the other hand, a recent study suggests that when extremists come back from jihad abroad that they are more likely to commit acts of violence at home. So those who don't get themselves killed are much more likely to do bad things here. Making them somebody else's problem no more.

Bombing Outside Mosque in the UK After Rigby Funeral
They have said the explosion came from car park at Kanz-ul-Iman Central Jamia Mosque in Binfield Street.And it's not the first:
Unconfirmed reports have said it was caused by 'a nail bomb'. West Midlands Police said it was now being treated as a 'terrorist incident.' ...
The incident came on the day murdered soldier Lee Rigby was remembered at a private funeral service in Bury, Greater Manchester.
The incident comes just weeks after an explosive device was found outside another mosque in nearby Walsall, just eight miles away.I know the first reaction of some will be that this is a fake hate crime done by some nutty Muslim trying to play the victim card.
Maybe, but it seems less likely than the other alternative: there are plenty nutjobs out there who aren't Muslim.
As rare as non-Muslim on Muslim terrorism is, it does exist. Case in point.
If you are on the right and you believe in collective guilt, then I have news for you: you are not on the right.
If you believe that Muslims in general ought to be punished for the deeds of a specific Muslim then you and I are not on the same page.
This same mentality is why George Zimmerman is being prosecuted.
It's the same mentality which leads to terrorism. You hurt random people who represent a group in order to send a message of fear to that entire group.
And it's what made the KKK not just a group of thugs, but terrorists.
So, yeah, there are people who really do hate Muslims and it is conceivable that some subset of this group really are either crazy enough or ideologically motivated enough or some mixture of the two that they would resort to acts of terror.
The only individual who actually fits that characterization in the West, though (that I can think of offhand), is Anders Breivik. And for him it was an ideology mixed with a good dose of the crazy.
And, oddly enough, Breivik's anti-Muslim paranoia led not to killing Muslims, but to killing a bunch of Norwegian kids.
Which isn't odd at all, when you come to think of it. The vast majority of terrorism in the world is committed by Muslims. This is true. But it is also true that the vast majority of the victims of Muslim terrorism are ... other Muslims. The "traitors" and "apostates" as the Salaafis like to call their Muslim victims.
Breivik viewed the powers that be in Norway and the Labour Party similarly as traitors.
The point being that while it is possible that this mosque attack is a hoax -- we've seen plenty of phony hate crimes against Muslims since 9/11 -- we need to remember the moral of the story in The Boy Who Cried Wolf: sometimes, there really is a wolf.

UAF And Muslims Destroy Flower Memorial For Lee Rigby
The United Against Fascism, which opposes the EDL, helps Muslim protesters destroy flowers left for murdered soldier Lee Rigby. They then throw the flower pieces at counter protesters, all while under the watchful eye of police.
In others words, this group against fascism only wants to allow displays in which they approve.
Al-Rahma Mosque in London Burns
BBC: Abubakar Ali, from the centre, said: "The Somali community is in fear.First of all, arson is a crime, so whomever did this needs to be prosecuted. We need to keep an open mind and go where the evidence leads. Wherever that may be, we don't have a perpetrator holding a firebomb confessing on video.
"We are all shocked about what has happened and we strongly condemn the attack on the centre. As you can see, the situation is a very serious one indeed.
"We are appalled and deeply saddened by the horrific and foolish act against a peaceful community. While no one was thankfully physically hurt in the attack, the effects of this crime will be felt very deeply."
Second, Islam is not a race.
Taking a page from Anjem Choudary, rather than condemn the burning of a Mosque we need to look deeper into the root cause....

Woolwich Butcherer Michael Adebolajo Asked To Be Known As Mujahid Abu Hamza In Bizarre Cornhole Watch Appearance
A man accused of murdering soldier Lee Rigby made a bizarre appearance in court today and demanded to be known as Mujahid Abu Hamza.
Michael Adebolajo, 28, constantly interrupted proceedings during the ten minute hearing at London’s Westminster magistrates’ court.
Dressed in white T-shirt and trousers, he held a copy of the Koran and had his left arm cased in plaster.
He smiled and blew kisses to a lone supporter in the public gallery and both men then pointed at the ceiling of the court in a gesture similar to the victory sign given by Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt.

'Do Not Be Scared Of The Filthy Kuffar. They Are Pigs.'
Woolwich killer was recorded inciting hatred and violence against non-Muslims, yet the U.K. Government still felt compelled to secure his release from Kenyan police.

Tommy Robinson Discusses The EDL, The Woolwich Murder, And Islamic Fascism
The leftist media has painted the English Defense League as being violent and racist, not unlike the way its painted the Tea Party in America. For example, when Muslims organized a protest during which a war memorial was vandalized with pro-Islamic graffiti, the media quickly defended the protesters and pointed fingers at the EDL "troublemakers." EDL members and like minded citizens are being arrested for "racist" and "anti-religious" Facebook and Twitter postings, yet Islamist's calls for violence against non-Muslims goes unnoticed.
In fact, the EDL has acquired the "racist" label only for being anti-Islamic. Thinking people know Islam isn't a race. But in popular leftist dogma, anyone who doesn't embrace all cultures and ideologies (Christian Caucasian being the exception) is a "racist."
I don't always agree with everything EDL members do or say, nor would I condone violence or destruction of private property. But I do agree with the things Robinson is saying in the video. We must confront Islamic extremism and we must challenge the Government when it tries to suppress free speech.

U.K. Police Arrest 3 More Men In Connection With Savage Murder Of Drummer Rigby
Most likely more of al-Qaeda loving Anjem Choudary and Omar (the goat humping) Bakri Mohammed followers like the above
LONDON (AP) — British police on Saturday arrested three more suspects in connection with the savage killing of an off-duty soldier that has raised fresh concerns about terrorism.
Scotland Yard said counterterrorism officers arrested two men, ages 24 and 28, at a residential address in southeast London. A third man, 21, was arrested separately on a London street at the same time.
Police said they used a stun gun on two of the suspects. All three were detained on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

Abu Nusaybah, Friend Of Woolwich Butcher Mujahid Adebolajo, Arrested After Appearing On BBCUpdated: Abu Nusaybah Also Mentored By Jihad Preacher Anjem Choudary
Apparently, in the interview, Abu Nusaybah told BBC Mujahid was approached by M15 and they asked if he wanted to work for them. I guess Mujahid preferred his current occupation as Islamic butcher of kaffirs.
MI5 asked Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo if he wanted to work for them about six months before the killing, a childhood friend has said.Nusaybah said Mujahid Adebolajo was cornholed in Kenya.[See my update below the fold].
Abu Nusaybah told BBC Newsnight his friend - one of two men arrested after Drummer Lee Rigby's murder in south-east London on Wednesday - had rejected the approach from the security service.
The BBC could not obtain any confirmation from Whitehall sources.
Abu Nusaybah was arrested at the BBC after giving the interview.
The Met Police said a 31-year-old man had been arrested at 21:30 BST on Friday in relation to suspected terrorism offences and search warrants were being executed at two homes in east London.
The arrest was not directly related to the murder of Drummer Rigby, it said.
In his Newsnight interview, Abu Nusaybah said he thought "a change" had taken place in his friend after his detention by security forces on a trip to Kenya last year.I had posted earlier one of the two terrorists wanted to join al-Shabaab but I didn't know which one. Most likely it was him considering his 'trip to Kenya'.
Abu Nusaybah said Mr Adebolajo suggested he had been physically and sexually abused during an interrogation in a prison cell in the African country.
After this, he became withdrawn "and less talkative - he wasn't his bubbly self", Abu Nusaybah added.
He said Mr Adebolajo also told him that, upon his return, he was "followed up by MI5" who were "knocking on his door".
Brother Abu Nusaybah MashAllah has a Big family, so plz make dua for his wives and kids, hes house is still being searched. #FreeAbuNusaybah— Mujib Rahman (@MujibRahman93) May 24, 2013
I bet he is raking in the big welfare bucks[Jihad seekers allowance]. Many wives and kids, good Lord.
Update: I checked man of many wives twitter account for the cornhole comment:
He's full of shit. Yes, Kenya jails are bad but stating UK knew?
Update II: He was/is mentored by radical preacher Anjem Choudary. I thought his face looked familiar:
Nusaybah is connected to extremists formerly in the banned group al-Muhajiroun. Counter-terrorism officers turned up at reception at the BBC's central London headquarters as his interview was being recorded an hour before it was broadcast. The officers waited, then arrested Nusaybah as he left the BBC's headquarters.He is trying to incite his akhis and make excuses for that beheading bastard of a friend of his.
Epicenter Of Evil: Anjem Choudary's Web Of HateOmar Bakri Mohammed, London Beheader's Imam
Click to enlarge
I added the last name of the second Woolwich butcher to the above image. His full name is Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale
Via The Sun: Epicentre of evil- Killer is my pupil, says Choudary
HATE cleric Anjem Choudary yesterday admitted the Woolwich butcher was one of his disciples — and praised his “impeccable character”.Until the PC shite stops we will continue to see these Islamic bast*rds continue their jihad on infidels.
Bile-spewing Choudary acknowledged he helped turn Michael Adebolajo to extremism and that the machete monster was only “making his voice heard in blood”.
The preacher — still free as a bird despite brazenly inspiring terrorists for a DECADE — claimed he did not “condone” the attack that left soldier Lee Rigby dead.
Choudary said of Wednesday’s atrocity by Adebolajo and fellow fanatic Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale: “What he did was unusual and it’s not the view I propagate but those views are out there.
“Some members of the Muslim community struggle to express themselves and he is making his voice heard in blood.”
His comments come three months after The Sun secretly filmed Choudary, who is a British citizen, teaching extremists to “rise up” against non-believers.
We caught the father of four, who The Sun revealed has claimed £25,000 a year in welfare, urging fanatics not to ignore “jihad and fighting”, and labelling David Cameron the devil.
It was just the latest example of Choudary being at the centre of terror plots — leading experts to demand why police are guilty of “a gross derogation of duty” by turning a blind eye towards him.
The Sun handed cops a detailed dossier of Choudary’s terrorist training methods after publication of our expose on February 17. We met detectives at their request on March 6 and handed over reams of paperwork and DVDs of secret recordings of the preacher’s rants.
On March 26 Thames Valley Police-based officers announced they would mount no case — saying the material we provided “fell below an evidential threshold”.
Terrorists are not born, they are made....
2nd Woolwich Terrorist Is ID'd As Michael Oluwatobi AdebowaleConvert To Islam, Probation Officer's Son
The second Muslim convert who allegedly executed Lee Rigby in Woolwich has been identified as Michael Adebowale, a probation officer’s son radicalised as a teenager, it emerged today.His "friend" speaks out
The 22-year-old British citizen of Nigerian descent and Michael Adebolajo, 28, ran the soldier down with their car before ‘hacking, chopping and cutting’ at his body like ‘crazed animals’ screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’ – an Islamic phrase meaning ‘God is great’, witnesses said.
With Rigby’s body left in the street Adebolajo ranted on film: ‘You people will never be safe’ before the pair waited 14 minutes for armed police to arrive and were gunned down waving firearms, knives and a machete.
Both have been been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in hospital in a stable condition with Scotland Yard waiting to interview them[...]
Details about the 22-year-old are still emerging, but it is understood he and his girlfriend, a fellow convert, were well known in south-east London for handing out extremist leaflets[...]
They had been considered “lone wolves”. But MI5 and Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism officers are trying to find out if they are part of a terror cell that could carry out further atrocities.
One of the killers was picked up by police last year as he tried to leave the country, apparently on his way to join al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabaab fighters in Somalia[...]
Somalian terrorists Al-Shabaab last night tweeted messages of sympathy for the Woolwich butchers.
Big "shock" my arse.

Michael Mujahid Adebolajo: Behead Those That Insult Islam
Such A Quiet & Shy Lad Eh Anjem Choudary & Omar Bakri Mohammed?
In The Wake Of Woolwich, Authorities Crack Down On Twitter Users
In The Wake Of Woolwich, Authorities Crackdown On Twitter Users
From The Daily Mail (emphasis mine):
Two men have been arrested for making alleged offensive comments on Twitter after the murder of a British soldier.
MailOnline understands the pair had tweeted using inflammatory language and were trying to organise an anti-Muslim protest in Bristol following the execution of Drummer Lee Rigby, 25, in Woolwich two days ago.
Complaints were made to Avon and Somerset Police about remarks that appeared on the social networking website, which were of a racist or anti-religious nature.
Let me see if I understand this... Two Muslims citing the Quran butcher an innocent non-Muslim man in the street, but it's two Twitter users who are "inciting religious hatred"?
This is the world in which we live. Journalists are more frightened of rowdy protesters than remorseless murderers, politicians cater to a hateful religious ideology, and a religiously motivated murder isn't incitement, but a tweet expressing outrage is.
Naturally, that Twitter crackdown doesn't apply to those really inciting religious hatred. In case you were worried about that...
Michael Mujahid Adebolajo: Behead Those That Insult IslamSuch A Quiet & Shy Lad Eh Anjem Choudary & Omar Bakri Mohammed?
Well, he said he would behead and that's what he tried to do to Drummer Lee Rigby.
The setting was the Old Bailey in 2006, where four men were arrested for fighting with police and photographers as they turned out in support of a fanatic on trial for calling for British soldiers to be killed.Again, Anjem Choudary and Omar (the goat humping) Bakri Mohammed have mentored another Islamic terrorist.
Among those led away in handcuffs that day, still arguing that he was within his rights to urge people to “behead those who insult Islam”, was Michael “Mujahid” Adebolajo. Seven years on, Adebolajo, a British-born Muslim convert, is suspected of having answered the call to arms as one of two men who butchered Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich.
The attack on the soldier, following which Adebolajo talked of an “eye for an eye” [he was citing the Quran MFM talked over it..ed]as his hands dripped with blood, came seemingly from nowhere, but The Telegraph has established that the killer had in fact been well known to the police and MI5 for years. Far from being a so-called “cleanskin”, Adebolajo was a known extremist with an open MI5 file who was in plain sight all along

Woolwich Slaughter Not A "Betrayal" Of Islam, But A "Portrayal" Of Islam
An update to THIS POST.
It seems some Muslims are disagreeing with David Cameron about the Woolwich attacks:
It is not a “betrayal” of Islam as he’d put it but rather a “portrayal” of Islam. Don’t expect Muslims to simply turn the other cheek!— HSMPress (@HSMPRESS1) May 23, 2013
WTF? You mean the
dhimmi U.K. Prime Minister doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to Islam?? I'm shocked!
(Hat Tip: Weasel Zippers)
Al Qaeda Lover Anjem Chourdary Mentored Woolwich Terrorist Michael AdebolajoBlames British In Afghanistan For Attack (bumped)Omar Bakri Mohammed: I Mentored Him Too!!!
Anjem (al muhaijroun,revolution muslim,Islam policy,shariah4UK,shariah4Islam,sharia4world, muslimsagainstcrusades.etc) knew and knows 28-year-old Michael Adebolajo (aka Mujahid) when the bitch converted to Islam in 2003. When the media asks Anjem about this, he uses the old: "I knew him and haven't seen him for two years" bs.
One of the two men involved in the Woolwich terror attack was known to a banned Islamist organisation and went by the name of Mujahid, The Independent in London has reported.Sure he doesn't preach attacks on Brit troops or anything (out in the open for all to see, well sometimes... see here), he just tweets something like this:
Anjem Choudary, the former leader of the [banned..ed] group, Al Muhajiroun, confirmed that he had known the man who was seen on video in the immediate aftermath of yesterday's horrific killing waving a cleaver with bloodied hands and making political statements.
Mr Choudary said Mujahid, who he said had converted to Islam in 2003 and was a British-born Nigerian, had stopped attending meetings of Al Muhajiroun and its successor organisations two years ago. The former solicitor said he had also known "Mujahid" as Michael[...]
Sources today named one of the suspects as 28-year-old Michael Adebolajo.
Mr Choudary told The Independent: “I knew him as Mujahid. He attended our meetings and my lectures. I wouldn’t describe him as a member [of Al Muhajiroun]. There were lots of people who came to our activities who weren’t necessarily members.
“He was a pleasant, quiet guy. He reverted to Islam in about 2003. He was just a completely normal guy. He was interested in Islam, in memorising the Koran. He disappeared about two years ago. I don’t know what influences he has been under since then.”
Founded in 1983 by Islamist Omar Bakri Muhammad[ Omar the goat humping bakri muhammed...ed], Al Muhajiroun became notorious for attempting to justify the 9/11 attacks and fomenting Islamist rhetoric in Britain.
Mr Choudary, who has long been a controversial figures in Britain’s Islamist circles, has been an outspoken critic of British military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
But he insisted that he had never preached that attacks on British troops or security personnel in Britain were justified.
He was influenced by Anjem's radical preaching as many before him have. Most are in pound-in-ass prison now. For a recent example of such, Americans Zach Chesser and Jesse Norton of Revolution Muslim's South Park fame.
The Jawa Report has OWND his websites numerous times and I noticed today he has another up and running: http://anjem-choudary.com/ The site is registered at Dynadot, a US company. They don't appear to have a problem with it as they have previously refused to remove known terror groups websites. when we have contacted them.
So what is one to do?
Oh hey, lookie here: anjem-choudary.com Tango Down
That's what I call a natty PWN
Update: Not to be outdone by Anjem, Omar the goat humping Bakri Mohammed wanted his mug in the news too. Radical preacher challenge!
Part of that radicalisation can be tracked to extremist groups such as the now-banned al-Muhijaroun. Its former UK head, Omar Bakri Mohammad told the Guardian that he had known Michael Olumide Adebolajo, who had attended many meetings. These included al-Muhijaroun events at community centres and a mosque in the Woolwich area.Anjem's website Tango Down also affects the ole goat humper.
Adebolajo attended the meetings from 2004 to around 2011 and, according to Bakri Mohammad, chose his own Muslim name after converting from his Christian upbringing. The name he chose, Mujaahid, means one engaged in jihad.
No, I don't condone hacking but I'll leave it at that.
Woolwich Journalist Always Felt Safe Until...
The EDL showed up.
That's right, Emily Jupp of The Independent, always felt safe and happy in her Woolwich neighborhood until last night:
Woolwich has been my home for six years. It has always felt safe. Even during the riots, I wandered down the high street past smashed windows, past looters in hoodies. Yes, it was unsettling, there was a sense of anger and frustration, but it was directed at property, and sometimes at the police, it wasn't divided along racial or religious lines. Most of all, it didn't make a dent in the community. [...]
Last night was different.
That's when the Islamophobes, better known as The English Defence League (EDL), appeared.
Maybe it's just me, but I feel a little less safe around machete wielding men butchering an innocent man in the middle of the street in the name of Allah than of a few rowdy and (justifiably) angry protesters. I'm a little quirky like that, I guess.
Another journalist, Daniel Trilling, writes of his fears:
It's just before 9pm on Wednesday evening, and the handful of customers in Woolwich Wetherspoons are distracted by the giant TV screen playing looped footage of a crime scene about half a mile up the road. It's the main topic of conversation, and even the barman is arguing with the waitress, like people everywhere have been arguing: who did it, why, what it means. A few minutes later, a dozen men - youngish, in windbreaker jackets - enter the pub, looking jumpy. Several are talking into their mobiles. As his companions approach the bar, one steps back outside and unfurls a St George's flag with "EDL - Bexley Divison" written on it.
Oh, the horror! windbreakers and a St. George's flag?! I'm so happy everyone made it out safe. I hope no one stepped in the big pool of blood on Artillery Place fleeing these EDL racists!
Two young men butchering an innocent in the middle of the day, in the middle of the street, while praising Allah and quoting the Quran = just another crime by confused and disenchanted yobs
Young men in windbreakers, looking jumpy, talking on phones and carrying a St. George flag = horrible racists out to destroy the community!!11!!!
Leftist UK Leadership Comes Out To Defend Islam
When will they ever learn?
"O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous." -- Quran 9:123
(Hat Tip: Jihad Watch)
David Cameron - "Murder of soldier was a 'betrayal of Islam'":
Standing outside Downing Street, the Prime Minister said: "This was not just an attack on Britain – and on our British way of life. It was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country.
"There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act."
Keep believing that. Keep feeding the crocodiles in hope they will eat you last.
"Surat at-Tawba through many, many ayat throughout the Qur'an that we must fight them as they fight us." -- Woolwich Killer Michael Adebolajo
'Surat at-Tawba' is the 9th chapter in the Quran. (See verse at top of post.)

Beeb:Three British men have pleaded guilty to preparing for terrorism acts overseas.The video mentioned in the BBC story is here. He was also part of Anjem Choudary's Muslims Against Crusades, so that's extra special.
One of the men used to be a police community support officer and another was a recent convert to Islam.
Richard Dart, Jahangir Alom and Imran Mahmood all pleaded guilty at a hearing at the Old Bailey ahead of their expected trial.
They were arrested in London weeks before the Olympic Games in July 2012. They will be sentenced later.
The three men were charged last year with engaging in preparation for acts of terrorism by travelling to Pakistan for training between July 2010 and July 2012 and by "advising and counselling" acts of terrorism by providing information about how to go to the country for the same purpose.
Alom's wife, Ruksana Begum, previously pleaded guilty to possession of information likely to be useful to a terrorist by having a memory card carrying copies of a jihadist magazine, Inspire.

They admitted a single terrorism charge at high-security Woolwich Crown Court just weeks before they were due to face trial.
The home-grown terrorists boasted they would kill more people than the July 7 bombers and wanted to create another landmark date alongside 9/11.

A jury at Woolwich Crown Court in London found 27-year-old Ashik Ali; Irfan Khalid, also 27; and 31-year-old Irfan Naseer -- nicknamed Big Irfan, or Chubbs -- guilty of multiple counts of preparing for terrorism....We won this round, but the game isn't over yet.
The men were "the real deal" and, if successful, would have perpetrated "another 9/11 or another 7/7 in the U.K.," said Detective Inspector Adam Gough, the case's senior investigating officer.

"Winning": Terror Arrests up 60% in UK in 2012
Terror arrests in Britain have jumped by 60 percent, according to Home Office figures.To be fair, it may just be that the police in the UK are just getting better at nabbing the bad guys before they act. Would-be jihadis are now being arrested before they get on a plane for Pakistan to hit the training camps.
Police held 228 people on suspicion of terrorist-related offences in the 12 months up to June 2012 - up from the 140 people held in the previous 12 months.
Which is a good thing inasmuch as they don't ever get the chance to become a martyr for the cause. But a bad thing because they never get a chance to get killed for the cause.

Good News: Anjem Choudary Headed to Pakistan to Issue Fatwa Against Malala Yousafzai
British-based Islamic radicals are preparing to announce a fatwa on Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old girl shot by the Pakistan Taliban, for her role in standing up to extremists.
Later this month, hardliners plan to gather at the notorious Red Mosque in Islamabad to denounce her as an apostate, accusing her of turning her back on Islam.
Anjem Choudary, who lives in East London and is one of the founders of al-Muhajiroun, which was banned in 2010, said the conference would announce the fatwa.

Fake Relatives Try to Get Access to Malala Yousufzai
Police on Tuesday questioned two people at a hospital where a teenage Pakistani activist is recovering after being shot, raising fears about the girl's security amid pledges by the Taliban to finish the job.Yeah its probably people just being overly curious. I mean its not like there is anyone in the UK who are sympathetic to the Taliban and would think they were doing Allah a service by finishing the job.
Medical Director Dave Rosser of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham stressed Tuesday that security was "under control." He said several individuals had turned up at the hospital claiming to be the girl's relatives — but didn't get very far. He said the people were arrested, but police said they had merely been questioned.
"We don't believe there's any threat to her personal security," Rosser told journalists, explaining the hospital did not believe the suspects were related to Malala. "We think it's probably people being over-curious."

Hook Handed Terrorist Wants His Hooks Back
After almost a decade of appeals, Abu Hamza al-Masri is finally in the US ... and already whining. This is the part where I offer $100 to the Federal Marshals to let me lick the tears from Abu Hamza's face:
In the Manhattan courthouse, al-Masri’s court-appointed lawyer asked that his prosthetic hands be returned immediately “so he can use his arms.” The preacher typically uses hooks on his arms, but he showed up in court with exposed stumps, for reasons that were not immediately clear.Help, he's being oppressed! Come see the violence inherent in the system!!

Fifth Column on Display in UK
What do you call a demonstration organized by the likes of Trevor "Abu Izzadeen" Brooks and Anjem Choudary? A target rich environment.
Umm, is it just me or does it appear that Anjem Choudary has been dying his beard?

Twins Jailed for Fake Charity Fundraising for Terrorism
There's something about twins that can make any story of terrorism that much creepier. I blame Stephen King:
Identical twin brothers who posed as charity collectors to raise thousands of pounds for overseas Al-Qaeda fighters were jailed yesterday.Meanwhile, over at The New Yorker, more stupidity on al-Awlaki's killing.
Shabir and Shafiq Ali, 25, imitated legitimate fundraisers on street stalls collecting money for Palestinians and the world’s poor.
But the pair were in fact wiring money to their elder brother after he travelled to Somalia to join the bloody Islamic insurgency....
They were inspired by Al-Qaeda hate preacher Anwar Al-Awlaki, the mastermind behind a series of bomb attacks who was killed in a drone strike last year.
Under this logic then al Qaeda's next strategic move would be to exclusively recruit Americans. That way we wouldn't be able to kill any of them for fear of hurting the liberal sensitivities of Manhattanites,the ACLU, and any one else who wants to replace drones with airdropped federal marshals delivering summons notices to caves in tribal Pakistan.

Lulz: Wife of Retarded Would-be Terrorist Charged
Richard Dart, aka Salahuddin al-Britani
In the world of online jihad he was known as "Salahuddin Al Britani", but to the government that sent him welfare checks he was Richard Dart. Dart and a number of his friends were recently arrested as they tried to head to Pakistan for jihadi training. Dart's wife, Ayan Hadi, is charged with covering up her husband's crime.
Notice that she's allowed to wear a full niqab to the hearing, with only her eyes showing. You'd think as a matter of safety, of public record, and of procedural due process that she'd be forced to show her face.
Ayan Hadi, 30, who is pregnant, is due to appear before magistrates in September accused of withholding information about the preparation of acts of terrorism, the Old Bailey heard.Here's a video of Dart. Notice that it's on the YouTube page of Muslims Against Crusades, another among a long list of groups once run by Anjem Choudary which are now banned in the UK.
Her husband, Richard Dart, has been charged with travelling to Asia for terrorism training....
Wearing full-length Islamic dress, including a veil that showed only her eyes, she appeared via video-link from Holloway prison.
The BBC also featured Dart in a video called "My Brother the Islamist" in which he calls himself a "jihadist" and admits supporting al Qaeda. The video also records Dart's conversion to Islam, the shahada administered by none other than .... Anjem Choudary.
Which means that Dart was on everyone's radar and he knew it. So, in addition to being a would-be terrorist, he's also a retard. Which is kind of redundant, I know.
So, where's Choudary today? Not in jail. In fact, he posted a video to his YouTube page yesterday.
Since the number of close associates of Anjem Choudary presently in jail must be well over two dozen now, then it seems increasingly likely that the Brits are either intentionally not prosecuting him because he's a magnet to terrorists or that he's worked out a deal with the government in which he turns over the really serious terrorists to them.
I'm increasingly inclined to believe the latter. Which, by Choudary's own belief system, makes him a traitor.

London: Suspected Al Qaeda Terrorist Caught At Olympic Park
A suspected terrorist who MI5 believe is a would-be suicide bomber was found repeatedly near the Olympic Games venue.One wonders, how many more are out there.
The alleged al-Qaeda militant was caught crossing through the Olympic Park five times, breaking a ban imposed by the Home Secretary, The Sunday Telegraph has learned.
The 24 year-old has previously tried to get to Afghanistan, allegedly for terrorist training, and is suspected of fighting for the Somali Islamist group al Shabaab, which has been responsible for thousands of deaths, including those of Western aid workers. He is accused of trying to recruit other Britons to its cause.
A Home Office lawyer warned after his discovery in the Olympic area that the man - known as CF - wanted to “re-engage in terrorism-related activities, either in the UK or Somalia” and is “determined to continue to adhere to his Islamist extremist agenda”.
His detention is the most serious security alert yet to hit the Olympic Park.
Anti-Terror Police Arrest Seventh Person In London Probe
Update on DMartyr's post from Thursday.
A 22-year-old woman has been arrested in east London in connection with an ongoing counter-terrorism operation, the Metropolitan Police has said.This is the second female arrested. On Thursday, five men and one woman were arrested. You can read more about these arrests at the forum
Officers arrested the woman at a property in Hackney during the early hours of Saturday morning, it added.
She is being held on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
Police have been given until 12 July to detain six people arrested on Thursday as part of the same investigation.
Update: As I noted on DMartyr's post, one of those arrested on Thursday was Muslim convert Richard Dart (aka Salahuddin Al Britani). Here is a video featuring him from our favorite OWND group " Muslims Against Crusades". The group planned, but failed, to interrupt the Royal Wedding:
On the 29th April 2011 the world will witness the royal Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.MAS's Anjem Choudary is still kickin, you can reach him @anjemchoudary, maybe. He blocked me a couple months ago but just now noticed he has set his account to private.
But it is not enjoyment time for the Muslims Against Crusaders, who plan to Disrupt the wedding to highlight the atrocities committed in Muslim lands which is supported by the royal family including the so called Queen, Prince William and Prince Harry etc.
Hence, in this video clip Salahuddin Al Britani aka Richard Dart, who recently appeared in the BBC3 show "My brother the Islamist" will be highlighting some of the reasons behind the disruption of the royal wedding.

UK: Seven Men Arrested in Anti-Terror Raids
Add seven more to the eight DMartyr posted on yesterday
Seven men have been arrested by police in anti-terror raids after weapons were found hidden in a car, police say.I wonder if any of those arrested were on benefits.
Six men from the West Midlands and one from West Yorkshire were detained over three days, West Midlands Police said.
They said the car was stopped on the M1 in South Yorkshire on Saturday - a search later found firearms, offensive weapons and other material inside[...]
Three men aged 23, 26 and 27 from Sparkhill, Birmingham, were arrested on Tuesday morning.
A 22-year-old from Alum Rock, Birmingham, a 24-year-old from Moseley and a 22-year-old from Smethwick, West Midlands, were arrested on Wednesday evening.
A 43-year old man from Kirklees, West Yorkshire, was arrested on Thursday.
Update: Interesting article at The Spectator regarding these arrests:
Prevent strategy still needs political willMoney quotes:
West Midlands Police have just announced seven arrests as part of an investigation into alleged terrorist activity. This follows the detention of six individuals on similar charges across London yesterday. Together, they reveal just how active the Islamist network in the UK remains and the potency of its ongoing threat.
One of those arrested in London yesterday, a convert, Richard Dart (also known as Salahuddin al-Britani) first came to prominence last year when his step-brother featured him in a documentary called ‘My brother the Islamist’. It offered a rare observational view on the inability of one family to comprehend the militancy and millenarianism of their son[...]
Cameron made it clear in Munich that he regards Islamist extremism tout court as the problem, and not just violent extremism. Labour had previously concerned itself with only the latter formulation, while some Whitehall mandarins are known to have pushed back vociferously against Cameron’s desire to broaden the counter-terrorism remit.
Recalibrating the theory behind Prevent has been an uphill battle for Cameron. Too many reputations across Whitehall are staked on its success and mandarins have been reluctant to admit its shortcomings. That fight may have been won, but not enough of its outgrow has yet been translated into active policy on the ground.*Reminds you of someone/something? Work place violence at Ft Hood come to mind? Or, Overseas Contingency Operation. How about man-caused disasters? Islamists?
The corollary is that – just as it was under Labour – extremists are free to continue their activities with relative impunity until someone strays into committing offences that attract police attention. Cameron committed himself to changing that and to intervening much further upstream. He now needs *someone in government willing to take it up and see it through.

Six Seven Eight Terrorists Arrested In UK (Updated)
Members of the Religion of Peace™? No way!!11!!
I'm shocked, SHOCKED, I tell ya!
A total of six people were arrested there and in separate raids in other parts of the capital, but Scotland Yard said the operation was not linked to the upcoming games, due to kick off on July 27.Update II: (Un)Related, it hasn't been a good summer for Islamic terrorists (H/T: Anna in comments)...
Police didn't identify the suspects, who range in age from 18 to 30.
However Mizanur Rahman, who is involved with a Muslim activist group, said all those arrested were British Muslims. He said the three men taken into custody in Stratford, the neighborhood that contains Olympic Park, were brothers and claimed that one was a former police support officer.
Scotland Yard declined to comment on the claim.
From The Telegraph:
Minh Quang Pham, 29, is said to have sworn an oath of allegiance to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsular (AQAP) after leaving Britain to join the terrorist group in December 2010. [...]Update III: Going for the Hat Trick, another Islamic terrorist arrested, though this one in France, not the UK. This one appears to be a major enabler. Hat tip to Howie.
He is said to have “facilitated communications and provided expert advice and assistance in photography and graphic design” for AQAP’s media wing.
He allegedly met two American citizens, referred to only as “American CC-1” and “American CC-2”, working with the former to produce online propaganda for AQAP.
At the time Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, both of whom were US citizens, were running the propaganda operation for AQAP which included the notorious on-line magazine called “Inspire.”
Expect updates on
both all three stories.
Update IV by SH: The Telegraph's story on Samir Khan's assistant Pham aka "Amin" is way behind. I posted on it on the 29th of last month

Non-Sarcastic Good News: Abu Qatada Arrested, Deportation Proceedings Begin Again
I'm guessing he has been a naughty, naughty boy since the Brits let him out of jail in February at the behest of the European Court for Human Rights. He was barred from leading prayers at mosque, using cell phones, surfing the internet (for porn, I'm sure), or public transportation. But I can envision a dozen scenarios where he continues to preach al Qaeda's message, but stays technically within the boundaries of his probation.
The bad news is that he's been successful at fighting extradition for six years already. The good news is that at least he's not on the street:
The Home Office said in a statement on Tuesday that British Border Agency officers “have today arrested Abu Qatada and told him that we intend to resume deportation proceedings against him.”And if he does go back to Jordan and he's tortured? No tears here.

Dickhead Ahmed Offers 10 Million Bounty for US Presidents
He's offering it because he's offended that the US would go after al-Qaeda linked terrorist in LeT leader Hafiz Mohammad Saeed
The British peer reportedly said: "'If the US can announce a reward of $10 million for the (capture) of Hafiz Saeed, I can announce a bounty of £10 million (for the capture of) President Obama and his predecessor, George Bush."Not really surprising. The UK harbors all kinds of America Hating terrorists. I mean they have not suspended the Taliban's DNS service as required under international law even though the URL is registered by a UK company and the registrar is also under UK jurisdiction.
Documents found by US special forces at Osama bin Laden's final hideaway in Abbottabad, 22 miles north of Haripur, last year apparently linked Saeed with the al-Qaeda leader. The evidence was said to have shown that bin Laden played a key role in planning the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
In its statement suspending Lord Ahmed the Labour Party said: "The international community is rightly doing all in its power to seek justice for the victims of the Mumbai bombings and halt terrorism."

Al Qaeda Finds Yet Another Reason to Make Empty Threat Against the UK
Al Qaeda is back .. and this time, it's personal:
In a statement signed by Al-Qaeda’s general command and published on jihadist forums, the terror network said Abu Qatada’s extradition would “open the gates of evil” on “Britain and its citizens everywhere.”I think my initial snark for this post was to observe that al Qaeda had been threatening the UK for any other number of reasons, so what's the big deal here?
“We warn the British government against extraditing Sheikh Abu Qatada to Jordan,” where he faces terror charges, said the statement, which called on London to “act with reason and wisdom … or it will regret it.”
And then, I just realized that the real snark here is the observation that Abu Qatada claims that he was not a member of al Qaeda ... and here is al Qaeda threatening the UK if they deport him to Jordan. But, you know, he's not a member or anything. Never has been ......
