Fifth terror-related conviction for a Blackburn muslim in recent years

A BLACKBURN man who posed as the head of al Qaeda in Britain and called for the deaths of Gordon Brown and Tony Blair has pleaded guilty to a string of terrorist offences.

Ishaq Kanmi, 23, of Cromwell Street, posted messages on a jihadi website which declared the Prime Minister and his predecessor would be sought by 'martyrdom seekers' if his demands were not met.

Pretending to be Umar Rabie - the head of 'al Qaeda in Britain' - he issued a two-month deadline in January 2008 calling for the withdrawal of British troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, together with the release of all Muslim 'captives' from Belmarsh Prison.

Over a series of months he spent up to nine hours a day at Black-burn Central Library researching and plotting, Manchester Crown Court heard. But he was unaware that counter terrorism police spent five months conducting covert surveillance of his activities after being alerted by a website moderator.

Kanmi was arrested at Manchester Airport as he waited to board a flight to Finland in August 2008. He had three electronic storage devices in his suitcase and was carrying a mobile phone all of which contained terror-related inform-ation which he intended to distr-ibute.

Today he pleaded guilty to professing to belong to al Qaeda and inviting support for the terror group. He also admitted collecting or making a record of information likely to be useful to a terrorist and three counts of disseminating terrorist publications.

Kanmi denied two counts of soliciting to murder Mr Brown and Mr Blair, which the Crown Prosecution Service said it was content to lie on file. Andrew Edis QC, prosecuting, said inviting support for a 'murderous organi-sation' such as al Qaeda was a similar crime to soliciting to murder.The pleas brought a strong reaction from Muslim community leaders in Blackburn.

Coun Salim Mulla, the chairman of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, said Kanmi was a 'rotten apple' who had behaved in a 'completely unacceptable way'.

And Jack Straw, Blackburn MP, said the court action, the fifth terror-related conviction for a Blackburn man in recent years, had come as a shock.

Following the lifting of reporting restrictions yesterday it can now be revealed that Kanmi was travelling to Helsinki when he was arrested in January 2008.

He was with Abbas Iqbal, 24, one of two brothers who filmed al Qaeda-style propaganda and dubbed themselves 'The Black-burn Resistance'.

Iqbal, of Percival Street, Black-burn, was sentenced to three years in jail at Manchester Crown Court two months ago.

Another terrorist linked to Kanmi was Albanian Krenar Lusha, 30, who was convicted by a jury at Preston Crown Court in December last year of five counts of possessing terror-related articles, and jailed for seven years.

Kanmi, still posing as Umar Rabie, had been in phone and internet contact with Lusha who was caught downloading a video on how to blow people up when police burst into his home in Derby.

Officers also discovered 71.8 litres of petrol in the cellar of Lusha's terrace house and computer documents such as 'The Bomb Book' and videos including 'Mobile Detonators'.

The convictions were the culmination of an operation which saw undercover police stationed at Blackburn Library between March to July 2008. They watched and filmed Kanmi while he used the computers.

During last year’s aborted trial, Mr Edis said Kanmi admitted making the two postings regarding Mr Brown and Mr Blair but would counter that it was a joke and that he never thought anyone would take him seriously.

The first message posted on the al-Ekhlaas website on January 2, 2008 compiled a list of aims for al Qaeda in Britain which included 'the elimination of political leaders and top of the list Blair and Brown. As God said: ‘Kill the nonbelievers’.'

Another objective was 'huge attacks, God willing, on centres and places of benefit to the crusaders. As God said: ‘Kill the participants as you find them, take them, guard them and wait for them’.'

The message concluded: 'We invite all Muslims in Britain to join us and prepare themselves for martyrdom operations and not lose this golden chance.

'We also invite all Muslims in Europe to make us victorious in Europe, with men and money, until the British government withdraws its troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.'

It was signed 'Leadership of al Qaeda in Britain.'

A second posting followed on January 24, 2008, composed from a public computer at Blackburn Central Library, in which Kanmi wrote: 'In the name of Allah, we the organisation of al Qaeda in Briton (sic) offers a truce to the British government.

'Our demands are as follows - 1: A complete withdrawal of the British troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, 2: To free all Muslim captives from Belmarsh Prison.

'If the British government fails to respond to our demands within the last day of March 2008 then the Martyrdom seekers of the organisation of al Qaeda in Britain will target all the political leaders especially Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

'And we will target all embassies, crusaders’ centre and their interests throughout the country, with the help of Allah.'

Mr Edis said Kanmi began using the name Umar Rabie on a US chat forum called Infovlad in May 2007.

He went on to create two other online identities, Umar Rabie’s Bro and Lover of Islam.

On the planned visit to Finland, Kanmi was to formally introduce Iqbal to the mosque leaders who had offered the latter a teaching post, the court heard.

He had previously visited a newly-opened mosque in the Finnish capital in his purported role as an Islamic scholar.

When searched at the airport both men were carrying terror-related information on mobile storage devices contained in their luggage.

Kanmi possessed a film from the media wing of al Qaeda about the 7/7 bombings in London and other videos on martyrdom and military training.

In Iqbal’s suitcase was a memory card which contained a video of two men dressed in camouflage crawling through Corporation Park in Blackburn.

Joel Bennathan QC, defending Kanmi, said it would be argued that his client was 'reckless rather than intentional' in some of his actions.

He said: “We will say this is a very young, damaged man who is a million miles away from Abu Hamza.”

Sentencing will take place on a date yet to be fixed as psychiatric and psychological reports on the defendant are prepared.

BNP Candidate attacked by Asians

Pop Up Embed Embed this video on your site
I do not know about you but I think that spitting is a filthy, dirty and disgusting habit and one that is all too common amongst the colonisers of Our Country, so I do not blame British National Party parliamentary candidate Bob Bailey for reacting the way he did when he was spat on by one of a group of Asian thugs who accosted him on his democratic campaign trail.

Usually these thugs who attempt to drive the True British from streets they now consider their own, like to operate in larger packs as you can see from yourself where I have listed some of them here on The UK Enrichment News but this time they were not up against a lone white boy but a man who could handle himself.

When the government and the police tell you there are no no-go areas in the country they are lying.  They know they are lying and you know it also.  Take a look at what happened to the journalist Jerome Taylor who thought he could go into one of "their" areas alone.  Stupid man.

As their numbers increase daily, the attacks of these patrolling packs on the True British people will increase as the invaders seek to drive them from their homes and land.

If you think it does not concern you because you live in an area that is so far un-enriched than you are wrong.  All that will happen to you, if you do not fight back now by voting BNP on the 6th of May is to be one of the last the Islamic crocodile consumes.

UK Muslim TV: wives must not refuse sex with spouse & a woman who wears perfume in public is a prozi

Britain's leading Muslim TV channel was accused of encouraging “marital rape” and promoting other intolerant views of women in a report on extremism published today.

The report by think tank Quillam says that the London-based Islam Channel broadcast comments saying that “the idea a woman cannot refuse her husband relations” was “not strange” and was instead part of “maintaining a strong marriage”.

It says that the channel also broadcast advice that a wife should not leave her home without her husband's permission and that a woman who wears perfume in public is a prostitute.

The think tank, which is calling for an investigation by broadcasting watchdog Ofcom, also accuses the channel of advertising talks by al-Qaeda-supporting preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, who is alleged to have inspired failed Detroit bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and of giving a platform to other extremist Islamists.

The report, which was based on an analysis of broadcasts over three months, also states that Islam Channel's programmes have undermined trust between community groups by airing hostile comments about non-Muslims and those who follow alternative versions of Islam.

The channel's website says that it aims “to present the Islamic viewpoint and values” and provide “authoritative and impartial Islamic information”. It aims to act as an “interface” between Muslims and non-Muslims and remove misconceptions about the religion.

But Talal Rajab, the report's author, said the programmes regularly promoted an “intolerant and out-of-date” form of Islam with unacceptable views. He said: “It is the most-watched Muslim TV channel in the UK. During the three-month period that we monitored its output, it repeatedly promoted bigoted and reactionary views towards women, non-Muslims and other Muslim sects.

“Although the channel does not directly call for terrorist violence, it clearly helps to create an atmosphere in which religiously-sanctioned intolerance and even hatred might be seen as acceptable.

"By promoting a single narrow version of Islam, Saudi Wahhabism, the Islam Channel is wasting an enormous opportunity to positively shape the nature of Islam in Britain.”

Among the comments highlighted by the report were those by a guest on the programme Muslimah Dilemma on whether a wife should always agree to sex with her husband.

The guest said “it is a bit strange... to refuse relations. It would harm a marriage. The idea that a woman, even if married, can refuse relations with her husband because of individual choice'... is part of the Western culture, but not Islam.”

There was concern about the religious advice programme IslamiQA, in which viewers were told “the majority of people in the hell will be women” because they are the cause of “calamities, hardship and suffering” in Western society. The same presenter tells viewers that if a woman wears perfume in public and it is smelt by a stranger “then she is declared a prostitute”.

The privately funded Islam Channel, which launched in 2004, has already been found by Ofcom to have breached the broadcasting code on impartiality during elections, and for broadcasting an unbalanced programme about the ownership of Jerusalem.

Mosque plans given go-ahead

Plans to build a new three-storey mosque in Accrington have been given the green light.

Councillors on Hyndburn’s planning committee granted permission to demolish existing mosque buildings on Higher Antley Street and create a 1,296 square metre building with decorative minarets and a dome.

Councillors voiced some concerns over the lack of parking provision with only five on-site spaces but these were alleviated after it was revealed 100 members of the mosque lived within a short walking distance.

The committee asked for an additional condition banning any sort of function, such as weddings, within the building which will house a ground-floor prayer area for men, a first floor area for women and a teaching area on the first floor.

Applicant Asif Khan said that the new increased size was not to attract more people at services, but to allow room for religious instruction classes for children after school. There are currently three part-time and six full-time employees at the mosque which will increase to six part-time and six full-time employees.

Speaking at Hyndburn’s planning committee, Coun Doug Hayes said: “They need the extra space and if you think about it, most churches don’t have parking provision so I’m not sure why we would insist on that. As long as it is used for religious teaching and prayers, and not any type of function, I am in favour of it.”

Coun Miles Parkinson said: “All denominations have a right to worship and this close-knit community is willing to invest in an building which is sadly in need of investment.”

Coun Allah Dad added: “This is something which the local muslim community have needed for many years. I have always supported religious facilities and education centres.”

Services on Friday and five daily prayers will continue as normal with children’s classes taking place from 5pm to 7pm Monday to Friday. Services will remain the same during Ramadan.

The current building is constructed with artificial stone but planning officers have ruled that the new building should use natural stone to reflect the character of the area.

Dutch far-right breakthrough met with Muslim disbelief

Copied from Expatica.com

Muslims in a Dutch city where anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders' party won local elections reacted with shock and anger Thursday, fearing his popular rise would fan the flames of hatred.

"I am afraid that it will lead to more hatred," said 20-year-old student Sakina Buyatui, a Dutch-born resident of Almere, a city of nearly 190,000 people near Amsterdam where a third of the population is of immigrant origin.

In a show of strength ahead of June general elections, Wilders' Party for Freedom (PVV) came first with 21.6 percent of the vote in Almere in Wednesday's election.

"This is bad for Almere," Buyatui told AFP, wearing an Islamic headdress at the central station, where people of Turkish, Moroccan and Suriname descent, called "allochtonen" in Dutch, rub shoulders seamlessly with indigenous compatriots.

Irish arrests over 'plot to kill Swedish cartoonist'

Seven people have been arrested in the Irish Republic over an alleged plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist for depicting the Prophet Muhammad, police say.

The four men and three women are all Muslim immigrants, according to media reports, though a police statement did not confirm this.

Cartoonist Lars Vilks had depicted the Prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog in the Nerikes Allehanda newspaper.

Islamic militants put a $100,000 (£67,000) bounty on his head.

Mr Vilks was quoted as saying he was unfazed by the arrests, which he said he thought could be linked to two death threats he had received by telephone in January.

'Slaughter' bonus

Irish police said the seven suspects were arrested after an investigation into a "conspiracy to murder an individual in another jurisdiction", a probe that also involved police in the US and other European countries.

I have an axe here in case someone should manage to get in through the window
Lars Vilks

The suspects ranged in age from their mid-20s to late-40s.

Ireland's RTE news network reported that five were detained in Waterford and two others in Cork.

RTE said those in custody were originally refugees from Morocco and Yemen, but had gained asylum and were in the Republic of Ireland legally.

Mr Vilks has been under police protection in Sweden since threats were made against his life.

"I'm not shaking with fear, exactly," he told Swedish news agency TT after Tuesday's arrests.

"I have prepared in different ways and I have an axe here in case someone should manage to get in through the window."

In 2007 a group linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq offered a $100,000 reward for killing Mr Vilks, and a 50% bonus if he was "slaughtered like a lamb" by having his throat cut.

It offered another $50,000 for the murder of Ulf Johansson, editor-in-chief of the regional newspaper, Nerikes Allehanda.

'Now it's your turn'

The Vilks controversy arose in 2007, when his entry in an arts project was published by the newspaper.

It pictured a dog with the head of a bearded man in a turban.

Several Muslim countries protested against the picture.

At the time, Swedish officials expressed regret at any hurt caused to Muslims' feelings, but said the government could not prevent the publication of such drawings because of media freedom rules.

The case came about a year and a half after a series of depictions of Muhammad in Denmark's Jyllands-Posten paper caused an uproar in early 2006.

Those cartoons sparked protests from Muslims around the world. Dozens of people were killed in riots.

Muslims regard any image of the Prophet Muhammad as blasphemy.

In January, one of the cartoonists whose drawing appeared in Jyllands-Posten, the Dane Kurt Westergaard, was targeted in his own home, allegedly by a Somali radical Muslim with an axe.

Mr Westergaard, who escaped unharmed, had depicted the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban.

Mr Vilks told The Associated Press news agency that the telephone threats in January had come from "a Swedish-speaking Somali. He reminded me about what had happened to Westergaard and threatened with a follow-up and that 'now it's your turn'."
