The U.K. has a very serious problem with jihad activity. Like the U.S. government of Barack Obama, the British government is in complete denial about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, and also like the U.S. government, it is under pressure from Leftist and Islamic supremacist groups to end all counter-terror activity as “Islamophobic.” In response, it is following a policy of near-total appeasement, pretending that “right-wing extremists” pose just as much of a threat as jihad terrorists, and working to drive all opposition to jihad terror and Islamic supremacism out of British public life. This will not, indeed cannot, end well for them.
“21-year-old denies posting extremist videos on Facebook and possessing Al Qaeda magazines,” from Wales Online, February 17 (thanks to Kenneth):
A Muslim terror suspect accused of posting links to extremist videos on Facebook denied the charges at the Old Bailey today.
Khuram Shazad Iqbal is accused of “providing a service” allowing others to read, listen to or watch material glorifying terrorism.
The Cardiff 21-year-old also allegedly had nine copies of Al Qaeda magazine Inspire on his home computer when he was arrested on October 8 last year.
Iqbal appeared in court to plead not guilty to dissemination of terrorist publications between January 1 and October 9 of last year..
He also pleaded not guilty to possession of information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.
Iqbal is due to stand trial at the Old Bailey on March 24.
The first charge states that he “provided a service to others that enabled them to read, listen to or look at terrorist publications or acquire them by means of a gift, sale or loan by making them available on Facebook internet pages”.
It is claimed there were six particular pages all with the name Abu Irhaab.
The charge alleges that by posting the material “he intended an effect of his conduct to be a direct or indirect encouragement or other inducement to the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism or he was reckless as to whether his conduct would have such an effect”.
Iqbal, of Kings Road, in the Canton area of the city, was remanded in custody.
