News about the Leeds Islamic Bookstore that the 7/7 bombers frequented from the Mirror.
THESE graphic pictures [not shown] are taken from Â£5-a-time DVDs and videos said to have been viewed by the London bombers before their murder mission.
The Mirror obtained them from a Leeds bookshop – Beeston’s Iqra “learning centre” – which has sold hundreds of such stock full of images of dying children and blast victims in Palestine, Afghanistan and India.
And the entire operation was allegedly funded by Government grants and lotto money – right down to the computers on which the propaganda films were produced.
Our copies are titled Hidden Agenda and Think Again – which an insider claims Hasib Hussain, 18, Shehzad Tanweer, 23, Mohammad Siddique Khan, 30, and Jermaine Lindsay, 19, may have watched.

The trio allegedly expressed hatred of the West and support of Palestinian suicide bombers – and our source claims the videos were used for recruitment at anti-war demos with the fivers supposedly going to a Palestinian children’s charity.
Bomber Siddique Khan was a regular companion of Fiaz for several years and the pair even visited our insider’s home.
Keys to the “terror base” at 18 Alexandra Grove in Burley, Leeds, were regularly used by “brothers in arms” who came to the store and needed somewhere to stay.
The insider, who asked not to be named for fear of reprisals, also says McDaid asked for high-security encryption for their computer systems so it would be hard even for Government agencies to access e-mails…
