Sounds about right. We all know there’s no such thing as Islamic terrorism. And thus no need to do anything about it.
The jihadist sent the Prime Minister’s office an email titled “terrorist Israel” in July 2014. It read: “Something needs to be done to stop Israel or we Muslims will get our revenge. We will wage jihad and slaughter every Israeli and their allies.”
The following month Ahmed began working as a security guard on London’s Crossrail project through a security firm.
He sent further threatening emails to the Australian government, Ofsted and a Sun journalist, warning: “May the British child burning soldiers burn in hell… cowards piss on their graves.”
Ahmed had sent death threats to staff at The French Bookshop in South Kensington on January 17,2015 with the subheading: “Protect your neck while you are still alive.”
He then made two threatening phone calls to the shop on 22 January, telling the owner: “I’m going to come and stab you, I’m going to come right away and blow up the shop: I’m not afraid of the police, I’m a Muslim.”
Ahmed, who has previously stated that he only recognises Sharia law, admitted two charges of sending malicious communications in November 2015 and was given a 20-week suspended sentence. He was also ordered to perform 300 hours of unpaid work and ordered to pay £1680 in fines and costs.
But just two months later in January last year, jobless Ahmed was caught on the Syrian border trying to cross into IS-controlled territory. He travelled to Turkey but was returned to the UK after officials detained him at the Syrian border, believing he was trying to cross into the war-torn country.
Ahmed was arrested on January 16 and admitted engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts.
Ahmed was sent back to the cells after shouting: “Wage jihad wherever we are… Target the civilians, tourist sites, tourist sites, inshallah [Allah willing].”
But the part is this.
After Ahmed was arrested a probation officer told him that Islam was a “peaceful and respectful” religion, but he replied: “No. It is a religion of war.”
The man knows his religion. A pity that the probation officer didn’t.
