As Britain gallops toward its self-induced ruin, this kind of story will become more and more common. British authorities have taken for granted that all the Muslims in the country are “moderate,” and that those who think otherwise are racist, bigoted Islamophobes. Accordingly, they have done nothing whatsoever to challenge the ways in which Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to make recruits and justify their violence. And so the teaching of jihad has proliferated in Britain. The results will be obvious within a few years.
“‘Sisters, if you love your sons, husbands and brothers, prove it by sending them to fight for Allah’: Muslim mother-of-six facing jail for encouraging terrorism in Syria with Facebook messages ,” by Chris Pleasance, Daily Mail, July 31, 2014 (thanks to Darcy):
A Muslim mother has been told to expect a ‘substantial’ prison sentence after encouraging terrorism in Syria over social media.
Runa Khan, 34, admitted posting a message on Facebook in September, saying: ‘Sisters, if you love your sons, husbands and brothers, prove it by sending them to fight for Allah.’
Khan, a mother-of-six, also posted a a picture of a suicide vest on the site, alongside a message which read ‘sacrifice your life to be in Islam’ in July last year.
On September 13, she sent a series of messages on the social media site describing a path into Syria and the name of a group in the country to join.
Wearing a niqab while standing in the dock of Kingston Crown Court, Khan pleaded guilty to four counts of disseminating terrorist publications between July and September 2013.
Addressing the defendant, Judge Peter Birts QC said: ‘I’m sure you have been advised they are charges of the utmost gravitas that almost inevitably will be met by a substantial custodial sentence.’
Judge Birts allowed Khan to wear a niqab in the dock after her barrister Jo Sidhu QC confirmed her identity.
The court heard Khan, from Luton, sent a series of Facebook messages to an undercover police officer describing a route from Turkey into Syria.
She received details of the route from Mohammed Nahin Ahmed who has admitted spending eight months in Syria fighting alongside an Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group, the hearing was told.
Ahmed and childhood friend Yusuf Zubair Sarwar, both 22, from Birmingham, fled to the country last May after contacting Islamic extremists.
They each pleaded guilty to one count of engaging in preparation of terrorism acts at London’s Woolwich Crown Court earlier this month.
