Muslim radicals routinely preach that Muslims should have no loyalty to non-Muslim states, but only to fellow Muslims. This is the fruit. From the BBC, with thanks to Twostellas:
A police officer has been jailed for two-and-a-half years for accepting money to pass on information to a Saudi Arabian intelligence officer.
Ghazi Kassim, 53, was paid to leak information on dissidents by a Saudi embassy diplomat, the Old Bailey heard.
He admitted three charges of public office misconduct by misusing his position to gain and sell information about people of Middle Eastern origin.
He had also been researching radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri.
Kassim passed his information to Dr Ali al-Shamarani, a third secretary at the embassy, who flew out of Britain shortly before Kassim was arrested in July last year.
A married man with three children, Kassim had been a policeman for 15 years but was sacked after his arrest.
On Monday, the court was told Â£14,000 had been traced to Kassim’s bank account.
Roger Smart, prosecuting, said: “Ghazi Kassim conducted research into private individuals using confidential databases held by the Metropolitan Police.
“He received tasking from Dr Ali al-Shamarani to go to question people at their home addresses, which he did.”
Mr Smart said: “He did not declare he was a police officer when he did this, nor did he declare for whom he was carrying out this research.
“He received significant cash payments for his work from the Saudi diplomat.”
Mr Smart added: “At the very least, his greed and /or other motivation has in effect risked putting into the hands of a third party information that would not otherwise have been freely obtained.”
I suspect he had another motivation that was more important to him than greed.
