An imam who encouraged his congregation including children to join
Islamic State told them martyrdom was better than school or college, a
court heard yesterday.
Kamran Sabir Hussain, 40, was recorded by an undercover police officer
delivering 17 sermons in a mosque aimed at recruiting members for IS,
the Old Bailey was told.
On September 2 last year, he allegedly told nine children and 35 adults
that martyrdom was the ‘supreme success’, greater than any other such
as school or college.
Those who died ‘fighting for Allah’ had nothing to fear because they
would be forgiven, he is claimed to have said. They would be martyrs in
paradise hated by no one except ‘unbelievers’ and hypocrites.
In front of a congregation of ten to 15 children under the age of 15
and about 25 adults on August 19 last year, Hussain allegedly said the

First to insult Muslims, attack them and put them down.
‘The kuffar [unbelievers] will attack you and kill you,’ he added.
‘Stand up and be ready to sacrifice, be ready to stand in the face of
the elements of shaytan [satan], be ready to spill blood and have your
An undercover officer known as ‘Qassim’ began attending the mosque in
Stoke-on-Trent in June last year and recorded sermons given by Hussain
over a period of ‘some weeks’.
‘Nobody knew he was a law enforcement officer and nobody knew he was
recording the sermons,’ said Sarah Whitehouse QC, prosecuting.
Ten of the sermons, in a mixture of English and classical Arabic, are
to be played to the jury, covering current affairs and reminders to the
congregation to fear God and the day of judgment.
‘Much of the context of Mr Hussain’s sermons was unobjectionable,’ Miss
Whitehouse said. ‘The sermons took the classic form of any sermon
preached in a mosque up and down the country.
‘Some of the sermons, however, strayed beyond mainstream moderate
Islamic thought and moved into support and encouragement to those
carrying out acts of terrorism.’
The court heard that in March last year Hussain posted a ‘chilling
message’ on social media in which he said the ‘Khilafah’ – a reference
to IS – was ‘knocking on your door and the fulfilment of Allah’s
command is near and if you don’t like it and are enraged by it, then
our message to you is simple: “Die in your rage.’’’
In another post, he wrote that Islam ‘is the light of Allah, pre-destined to eliminate the darkness of kufr’ [non-believers].
The court was told that on June 24 last year, nine days after the start
of Ramadan, Hussain delivered a 23-minute sermon to around ten people
in which he gave an account of Islamic military victories.
On the subject of the Battle of Badr in which the Prophet Muhammad was
victorious against a much larger army, Hussain is said to have compared
the circumstances to Syria today.
He spoke of a ‘small fledgling state who is standing in the face of a
pompous and arrogant army’ – described in court as a ‘clear reference’
to IS – and asked his audience to pray for it to be victorious and its
On August 5 last year, he is claimed to have told his congregation that
‘mujahideen’ [holy warriors] ‘take over a land, they stand a black
flag, and establish the law of Allah over the necks of the people,
whether they like it or don’t like it’ and ‘nobody – not the Queen, not
the Prime Minister – can say that you are not allowed to establish the
law of Allah’.
The sermon echoed a recording made at a demonstration in which someone
was heard saying: ‘Inshallah [God willing], we will see the black flag
of Islam over Big Ben and Downing Street’.
Hussain, who had been living in a flat close to the mosque where he
preached his sermons, is accused of two charges of encouraging support
for IS and six of encouraging others to commit acts of terrorism.
He was arrested on February 14. He refused to answer questions but gave
police a written statement saying the ability to discuss ‘difficult
concepts in a challenging world’ was an essential part of religion and
freedom of speech and he did not believe he had encouraged anyone to be
Hussain denies the charges and the trial continues.
London preacher and friend hail fanatic who killed politician in Pakistan as 'hero and martyr'
Friday 15 April 2016
A London preacher and his friend sparked outrage today by praising a
fanatic who murdered a Pakistani politician for criticising the
country’s strict Islamic laws.
Former imam Qari Mahmood, 38, and Khalid Iqbal Malik, 43, who attend
Lea Bridge Road mosque in Leyton, hailed killer Mumtaz Qadri “a hero”
and “a martyr”.
Qadri was convicted of killing Punjab governor Salman Taseer after
shooting him 28 times over his support for liberal reforms of blasphemy
laws in 2011.
In an online video published last month, hours after Qadri’s funeral
following his state execution, Mr Mahmood, of Waltham Forest, hails him
“a hero” and blesses his “martyrdom”.
He adds: “We are praying to Allah that he will grant us the same martyrdom... this is a man who loves God and his Prophet.
“People are crying for him and praying for him.... and you can see how
moving the funeral is... God help us to take his mission forward.”
The video appeared on online media channel Zara Sochoo — run by Mr Malik — which has more than 60,000 followers.
When asked why the clip was put on the channel’s Facebook page, Mr Malik also hailed Qadri a “martyr”.
He said he did not recall the video but added: “He [Qadri] did a great
act. It was not murder because, you know, not everyone’s opinions are
“Mumtaz Qadri was a great religious person. In front of him, someone
said to his Holy Prophet something [bad] like that, so he shot him.”
Waltham Forest council is investigating and councillor Ahsan Khan has
stepped down from his cabinet role after it emerged he had organised a
mini ceremony on January 28 at which Mr Malik was presented with a
community award for building up a large online following.
Mr Malik was handed a crest bearing the borough’s coat of arms by mayor Saima Mahmud.
During the ceremony, councillor Khan praised the cleric for the
channel’s “good content” and for it getting “over 500,000 hits across
Other videos on Mr Malik’s news channel include two Muslim men fighting
each other topless, which he said is a traditional “game”, and a man
beating a dog.
Hannah Stuart, an extremism researcher at the Henry Jackson Society
think tank, said: “To call Qadri a martyr is to continue to justify
fanatical vigilantism as religious duty.”
Father-of-three Mr Mahmood claimed he had been “misinterpreted”,
adding: “I do not condone any form of violence or extremism… My praise
for Mumtaz Qadri was in the gallant way he accepted the court verdict
of his death by hanging.
"My sympathy is with him with respect to him being subject to a brutal
form of capital punishment which I believe should no longer be
Mr Malik added by email: “The views expressed on the media channel Zara
Sochoo are likely the views of the speakers or individuals or
"They do not necessarily represent my personal views or opinions. I condemn all forms of terrorism and violence.”
He said he was not personally responsible for all the channel’s content.
A council spokesman said the mayor gave Mr Malik “a memento” at the event organised by Councillor Khan.
He added: “Qari Mahmood’s video which was later published by Mr Malik
after it appeared online in March is clearly of huge concern and the
matter has been referred to our monitoring officer so that a full and
independent investigation can be carried out.”
He said Councillor Khan had stepped down from his health and wellbeing cabinet role to aid the investigation.
“Both he and the mayor have stated they do not support the views of Mr
Malik or Mr Mahmood and consider any such intolerance unacceptable and
irresponsible,” he added.
Mayor Mahmud’s role will also be investigated. There is no suggestion she did anything more than present the crest.
Junaid Alam, one of three imams at Lea Bridge Road mosque, said Mr
Mahmood and Mr Malik’s comments were “against Islam” and had never been
made in the presence of the Sunni mosque.
Britain’s Most Notorious Muslim Radical Preacher Defends UK Labour Leaders Accused of Anti-Semitism
by AARON KLEIN
1 May 2016
During an exclusive interview on Sunday, Britain’s most notorious
radical Islamist preacher, Anjem Choudary, provided support for
suspended Labour MP Naz Shah’s controversial Facebook post suggesting
the relocation of Israel to the United States.
Choudary also defended the British Labour Party generally from charges
of anti-Semitism, saying, “I think that the term anti-Semitism has been
used as a tool to attack those who criticize Israel. And I think that’s
become clear over the last few days.”
He was speaking in a joint interview with Breitbart News and this
reporter’s Sunday night weekend talk radio program, “Aaron Klein
Regarding Shah’s advocacy of relocating the Jewish state to Israel, Choudary stated:
As far as Muslims are concerned, we want the whole of Palestine, which
includes what Israel currently occupies, liberated. And I think that
what Naz Shah said is not that far from what we would prefer, which is
that those who came to occupy the Muslim land of Palestine should be
returned from where they came.
They are free to live in Russia and Poland and other places. But
obviously do not occupy our land so that we are refugees in our own
Choudary ignored the existence of historic Jewish communities that have
lived in Israel continuously for hundreds of years. And he glossed over
the history of Jewish refugees immigrating to Israel because they were
forced to flee their homes throughout the Arab word after the
establishment of the Jewish state in 1948.
Choudary is a founder of the outlawed, pro-al-Qaida Al Muhajiroun
organization in Britain. He is currently awaiting trial in the U.K. for
allegedly encouraging support for the Islamic State.
Shah, meanwhile, was suspended from the UK Labour Party because of
inflammatory Facebook comments she made about Israel before being
elected to office. She is one of several Labour politicians currently
embroiled in an anti-Semitism scandal.
The Jerusalem Post reported on her online posting:
In the Facebook post in question, revealed by the website Guido Fawkes,
Shah published a graphic on Facebook that suggests the “relocation”
plan accompanied by the text “solution for the Israel-Palestine
conflict.” The graphic shows a map of the United States with an inlaid
outline of Israel pictured in the middle of the North American country.
“Problem solved and save u bank charges for £3 BILLION you transfer
yearly!” Shah wrote in the caption to the post republished by the UK’s
The post “highlights” a bullet-point list of reasons detailing the
benefits of the hypothetical plan, which includes the text:
“Palestinians will get their land and life back.”
Shah admitted on Monday that she was responsible for the Facebook post.
“This post from two years ago was made before I was an MP, does not
reflect my views, and I apologize for any offense it has caused,” read
a statement issued by the Labour member from Bradford West.
As Breitbart London reported on Saturday, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn
confirmed that his party has commissioned an independent inquiry into
anti-Semitism within its ranks.
This after Ken Livingstone, the former Labour mayor of London, was
suspended over comments in which he asserted that Hitler was
“supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million
Jews.” Livingstone also claimed that anti-Semitism is not “exactly the
same” as racism, a charge that Choudary supported in his interview with

Keith Vaz, chairman of the home
affairs select committee, said he was writing to Home Secretary Theresa
May to demand an explanation as to why al-Sibai is still in the country.
"It is extraordinary that successive
governments have been trying but failing to remove someone who has
these worrying links," he said.
"The way he has foiled attempts to remove him are a cause for enormous concern."
Tory MP Peter Bone added: "This is
the sort of thing that drives my constituents mad. I expect the Home
Secretary to deal with this urgently. There is a very strong case for
him to be deported. He needs to be dealt with."
Al-Sibai is understood to have close
links to Tunisian terror group Ansar al-Sharia, which authorities
believe to have recruited and trained Rezgui.
He is cited at length in a 2013
report by the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism in The Hague,
and is described as one of its "key influencers".
Security services are understood to
be investigating links between al-Sibai and his influence on the west
London terror network in which Jihadi John – unmasked as Mohammed
Emwazi – operated.
It is claimed that al-Sibai, a
charismatic preacher, had "captivated" a number of young Muslim men who
subsequently went abroad to fight jihad.
In a court case last year, he was
accused of having "provided material support to al-Qaeda and conspired
to commit terrorist acts", an allegation he denies.
The Department for Work and Pensions
said: "People who commit, plan and support acts of terror will be
prosecuted and anyone who has been deported or sent to prison will lose
their benefits.' The Home Office said: 'We do not routinely comment on
Muslim cleric wants 'women of mass destruction'
Says mothers should breed children to become suicide bombers
In a tape seized by authorities, radical Islamic cleric Abu Hamza
al-Masri is heard urging Muslim women to breed children for the purpose
of creating suicide bombers.
Lauding a mother who encouraged her son to carry out a suicide bombing
in Israel, the British-based leader said in the lecture: "Everywhere,
these are the women of mass destruction to the kuffar [unbelievers],
and these are the action [sic] that put terror in their hearts."
The recording, one of dozens handed over to authorities, was reported
by British investigative journalist Neil Doyle in his new book "Terror
Tracker," which chronicles his efforts to penetrate the internal
workings of the al-Qaida terrorist network.
Hamza has been indicted by the U.S. on 11 terrorism charges.
Authorities are studying the tape to build a case for the cleric's
extradiction to the U.S, Doyle said.
Hamza is at the high-security Belmarsh prison in east London pending a court hearing.
The recordings were discovered by a British undercover investigator who
infiltrated Hamza's group at the Finsbury Park mosque in London.
In the lecture reported by Doyle, Hamza refers to a suicide bombing in
Israel and says: "Last week we seen a mother ... she put happiness in
the hearts of every Muslim on earth and for years to come.
"She took her son, she took him herself, and she filmed a video with
him for him to go and do a martyrdom operation against the Zionists.
"She's encouraging him. She's left a message for the Ummah [Islamic
nation] – "this is my son, I'm giving him for you, for the Ummah of
Mohammad to wake up, for the mothers to follow!
"And he wrote a will and said how much his mother she was encouraging
him. And she was waiting all night and after that he went for his
mission. Waiting all night, not for the news that her son had passed
his A-level [British school exam] or he has got his degree, or he has
married the most beautiful woman in the club, but he was shaheed
[martyred] and he inflict a lot of suffering and terror in the hearts
"... this happened right now in the front of us, in the television
[sic], we have seen the tape, you've seen the video – if you haven't
seen it, go and ask for it!
"Everywhere, these are the women of mass destruction to the kuffar
[unbelievers], and these are the action [sic] that put terror in their
"This kind of women, when they miss their killed children, they don't
go and look for their graves ... they look for their position in
paradise, so they become more happy, more anxious to go and see them,
they want to sacrifice more and more."
Cleric calls on Mohammed cartoonist to be executed
Omar Bakri Mohammed, the
radical Muslim cleric, has said the cartoonist behind caricatures of the Prophet
Mohammed that have
sparked outrage across the
Arab world should be tried and executed under Islamic law.
The cleric said the cartoonist
had insulted Islam and must pay the price, as three people were killed during
protests against the cartoons in Afghanistan.
"The insult has been
established now by everybody, Muslim and non-Muslim, and everybody condemns the
cartoonist and condemns the cartoon," he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
"However, in Islam, God said,
and the messenger Mohammed said, whoever insults a prophet, he must be punished
"This man should be put on
trial and if it is proven to be executed."
The cleric said Muslims in
Britain were not allowed to kill people who insulted Islam because it was
against the law of the country.
"We are not saying ourselves to
go there and start to look to him and kill him, we are not talking about that.
We are talking about Islamic rules. If anybody insults the prophet, he will have
to take a punishment."
He said if countries refused to
put people on trial for insulting Mohammed they must "face the consequences".
Three people were killed and
several were injured as protestors clashed with police in the central city of
It was the latest display of
outrage against the cartoons, which were originally published in Denmark and
have been reprinted in various European countries.
Protests in London over the
weekend sparked concern over placards containing radical slogans.

check the credentials of imams arriving to take up posts in Britain.
The warning came as ministers pleaded with rebel MPs to back a
government bill in a vote overnight that would ban the glorification of
terrorism, which they insist is the only way to prosecute demonstrators
who carry banners praising the 7/7 bombers.

around the world of cartoons of the prophet Mohammed.

Muslim cleric who attacked Reid arrested

The Muslim who barged
into a meeting and heckled Home Secretary John Reid for "daring" to come to an
"Islamic" area has been arrested for encouraging terrorism.
Abu Izzadeen, who reportedly described the 7/7 bombers
as "completely praiseworthy" and said he wants to die as a suicide bomber, was
arrested in east London today.

public meeting with Muslims in September last year and called him an "enemy" of

Cleric who heckled Reid is arrested on terror
By Nigel Morris
25 April 2007
An Islamic extremist who described the
July 7 London bombers as "completely praiseworthy" was among six men arrested on
terrorism charges yesterday.
Abu Izzadeen gained further notoriety when
he heckled John Reid, the Home Secretary, at a public meeting last year.
The men were picked up in raids across
London and in Luton on suspicion of inciting terrorist acts abroad and of
raising money for terrorism. They were being questioned last night at the
high-security Paddington Green police station. The arrests followed an
investigation into a series of speeches delivered at Regent's Park Mosque in
Abu Izzadeen, a former electrician who
lives in Leytonstone, east London, came to prominence as the spokesman for the
extremist group al-Muhajiroun until it was banned last July.
He refused to condemn the London bombings
in 2005, which killed 52 people, describing them as "mujahedin activity" that
would make people "wake up and smell the coffee".
Abu Izzadeen, who is married with three
children, attracted headlines when he harangued Mr Reid at a meeting in east
London. Before being manhandled out, he denounced the Home Secretary as an
"enemy of Islam and Muslims".
Footage also emerged this year in which
the cleric suggested that Muslims who joined the British Army should be killed.
There is no suggestion that the arrests
were linked to planned terrorist attacks in Britain. A Scotland Yard spokesman
said: "The arrests form part of a long-term proactive and complex investigation
into alleged incitement and radicalisation for the purposes of terrorism, as
well as alleged provision of financial support for international terrorism."
The other men arrested included Simon
Keeler, a Muslim convert from Crawley, West Sussex, who has denounced the Queen
an "enemy of Islam'' and has described democracy as "something we hate''.
Another was Abdul Haq, 21, from Leyton, east London, who appeared on Jimmy
Young's radio show in 2001 vowing to continue the struggle "until we see the
flag of Islam flying over 10 Downing Street".
Ali Khan, estate manager and head of
security at Regent's Park Mosque, said: "Ten thousand people come here every
week, throughout the year half a million people, and if a few people create a
disturbance, it puts us in an embarrassing situation. Abu Izzadeen has
frequently visited and worshipped here, but if he excites the crowd, we don't
