* Penniless well-paid professional, lacking any marketable skills whatsoever, in this case a dental assistant, turns in desperation to jihad.
Qureshi parades with an AK47. He was arrested boarding the plane to Pakistan with nearly Â£9,000 in cash, a night sight, and military information stored on computer discs
Qureshi & Samina Malik, the airport worker who was assisting him with information about airport security. Samina is also known as ‘the lyrical terrorist’ because she wrote beheading poetry when she was not spying for AQ.
“Akhi – Sorry for the late reply. The airport security is still as tight as ever – even more now though.”Â
UK: Islamist convicted
* Samina got away without doing jail time, the dhimmi-judiciary of Britain put her on good behavior, which prompted the comical Mr. Bean look-alike from the MCB, Iniyat Bunglawussi to declare her completely innocent.
Law enforcement in the UK is really oppressive …
A British al Qaeda trained terrorist was jailed today after being arrested at Heathrow Airport on his way to fight coalition forces in Afghanistan.
Dental assistant Sohail Qureshi, 30, told fellow extremists he planned to “kill many” during a two-to three-week mission, possibly fighting British troops.
He was jailed at the Old Bailey for four and a half years – but could be free in just over a year because of the time he has spent awaiting trial.
Police refused to comment publicly after sentencing but privately senior anti-terrorist detectives were said to be “disappointed” with the verdict.
After his sentencing this afternoon, Scotland Yard released photographs of Qureshi posing with an M16 and a AK47 assault rifle and sources described him as a “significant player” with long-term links to al Qaeda.
They are believed to have been taken at training camps in Pakistan which he is known to have visited a number of times in the last 10 years.
The Pakistani-born Muslim was working as a Â£1,100-a-month dental assistant in Barking at the time of his arrest at Heathrow in November 2006 when he tried to board a flight to Islamabad with a night-vision scope, metal batons and Â£9,000 in cash.
He claimed he was going to visit his family for the Islamic festival of Eid. Qureshi, of Forest-Gate, is the first to be convicted under new legislation targeting the preparation of terrorist acts. He was held after a joint operation involving the Yard’s Counter Terrorism Command and the Security Services.
Investigations revealed Qureshi offered to help the war effort in Pakistan and Afghanistan. An intercept communication revealed him telling one of his contacts: “All I know is it’s a two- to three-week operation….. Pray that I kill many.”
Londonistan: ‘cultural sensitivity’ goes apeshit:
Orwellian UK: A magistrate has been reprimanded for refusing to deal with the case of a Muslim woman because she was wearing a veil covering her face.
Veil row magistrate reprimanded
Ian Murray walked out of court when Zoobia Hussain, 32, first appeared at Manchester Magistrates’ Court in June.
Ms Hussain, from Crumpsall, who was accused of criminal damage, was wearing a veil covering her entire face.
The Office of Judicial Complaints said Mr Murray had been given a formal reprimand and further
training. cultural sensitivity indoctrination.
He left the hearing without explaining why, but said later he felt the way Ms Hussain was dressed, in a niqab, raised identity issues.
The mother-of-five’s lawyer, Judith Hawkins, said she was “shocked and distressed” by Mr Murray’s “insensitive and unacceptable” treatment.
* Different shocks for different folks. PC-fascism & multiculti-BS at its best.
