Four years in prison. Do British authorities really think that four years is prison is going to disabuse Akeem Samuels of his thirst for jihad bloodshed? It’s much more likely that he will emerge from prison an even more committed and ruthless jihadi than he is now.
“Soon after the Orlando massacre by Omar Mateen on 12 June last year, Samuels posted a video recording featuring his own voice saying in a mocking voice: ‘All these hypocrites have started to come out “he’s not from my religion, Islam doesn’t practice that, Islam doesn’t say you shoot gay people.”‘”
What do all the “hypocrites” who said those things have to say to that? Why, nothing, of course. Their message is for non-Muslims only; they have nothing to say to Muslims such as Samuels.
“Another image showed a picture of a forearm being cut with a knife and the message: ‘Shi’ism – cut it out before it spreads.'” Last night I spoke at the University of Buffalo, where mostly I was shouted down by Left-fascists. At one point I warned that by demonizing analysis of the motivating ideology of the jihadis, they were enabling those jihadis, and that those in the room who were gay, feminist, or even the wrong kind of Muslim would ultimately be victimized by those whom they were enabling. At that point one cretin started screaming, “I’m Shia!,” as if in refutation of my point. He hasn’t yet met Akeem Samuels, or others like him, but he is helping ensure that more of them will be here before too long.
“ISIS supporter who posed as Osama Bin Laden for photos and posted beheading images online as he called for terror attacks on non-Muslims is jailed for four years,” by Charlie Moore, Mailonline, April 29, 2017:
An ISIS supporter who posted videos on Instagram calling for terror attacks on Christians has been jailed for four years.
Akeem Samuels, 22, openly promoted Islamic State and mocked the 49 victims of the Orlando terror attack who were shot dead at a gay nightclub in June.
He also posed as Osama bin Laden in a bulletproof vest and posted horrific images of decapitated bodies.
He threatened non-Muslim users with a picture of a hooded man and the message: ‘We are your worst nightmare kuffar [unbelievers]’.
Samuels was arrested in August last year after counter-terrorism officers spotted some of the extremist messages while monitoring social media.
Samuels, who came to the UK from Jamaica as a child and converted to Islam in his teens, later admitted encouraging terrorism and stirring up hatred on Instagram between 31 December 2015 and 14 August 2016.
The Common Serjeant of London, judge Richard Marks QC, told him: ‘The more support an organisation such as ISIS gets the more dangerous it will be and the further it will be prepared to go in furthering its aims and objectives.
‘That is why offending such as this is so serious and why there needs to be a deterrent element to the sentence.
‘This defendant posted a variety of communications intending they should encourage others to prepare or instigate acts of terrorism.
‘The homicidal loathing of homosexual men by IS is well known and I am sure the posting of this message [about the Orlando attacks] was clearly intended to foment that irrational hatred.
‘It is absolutely clear he held and still holds entrenched jihadi views. He offers not one word of apology or contrition.’…
In December 2015 he posted a picture of a hooded mad with an ISIS flag covering the face and the message ‘We are your worst nightmare kuffar’.
Another image showed a picture of a forearm being cut with a knife and the message: ‘Shi’ism – cut it out before it spreads’.
In January 2016 he posted screenshots of proclamations by the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Soon after the Orlando massacre by Omar Mateen on 12 June last year, Samuels posted a video recording featuring his own voice saying in a mocking voice: ‘All these hypocrites have started to come out “he’s not from my religion, Islam doesn’t practice that, Islam doesn’t say you shoot gay people”….
