* What seems to be overlookedÂ here is that she had an air side pass an access to high security areas. Al Bebeeceera portrayed her as a dizzy little shop assistant. They somehow overlooked the fact that the shop she worked at was at Heathrow Airport.

* Because in the realm of the Brownnoses, the Straws and Red Ken’s, the “M”-word must not be spoken, “Islamic” terrorism doesn’t exist any longer, and agit-props like Tariq Ramadan lecture freely at honorable institutions of higher learning. In this realm of tolerance rabid Islamofascists are made into ‘Barons’ and ‘Lords’ and are allowed to call the shots in parliament, because they make sure Britains rapidly growing armies of Muhammedans vote Labor. And Britain’s socialists have no qualms replacing the natives with an Islamic proletariat, much more reliable to keep one’s seat and to bring about the socialist utopia, innit?
* And because the Muslim lobby is so reliable and so persistent, and the Brownnose government is so eager to please, and because illustrious Muslim ‘leaders’ like the Bunglawussi and the bad wig man Muhammad Abdul Bari always whine and complain and threaten, and because stiff jail sentences might upset the Muslims –don’t forget we must win ‘their hearts and minds’ at all cost-, terrorists and their enablers are let off.
Like this one:
A 23-year-old former Heathrow airport worker who stored military manuals and wrote poems celebrating the beheading of non-believers avoided prison yesterday.
Samina Malik, who called herself the “lyrical terrorist”, was the first woman convicted under section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000 of possessing records likely to be useful in terrorism.
At the Old Bailey yesterday, Judge Peter Beaumont, the recorder of London, sentenced her to nine months’ prison, suspended for 18 months, and ordered her to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.
“In my judgment your offence is on the margin of what this crime concerns,” he told Malik. He said she was of previously good character and from a “supportive and law-abiding family who are appalled by the trouble that you are in”.
* “Law abiding” Muslims abide by the laws of the sharia, of course.
While a custodial sentence was merited, she had already faced extremely rigorous bail conditions that were “tantamount to house arrest” and had spent five months in custody.
Attention during her trial focused on her poetry. One poem, How to Behead, asserted: “It’s not as messy or as hard as some may think/ It’s all about the flow of the wrist ... You’ll feel the knife hit the wind and food pipe/ But Don’t Stop/ Continue with all your might.”
Malik, who lived in Southall, west London, and worked airside at WH Smith at Heathrow, was also found to have written on the back of a till receipt: “The desire within me increases every day to go for martyrdom.”
Jonathan Sharp, prosecuting, told the jury that Malik visited a website linked to the jailed cleric Abu Hamza and stored material about weapons.
Malik insisted she had adopted her “lyrical terrorist” nickname because she thought it was “cool”, adding: “I am not a terrorist.” Outside court her solicitor, Iqbal Ahmed, read a statement on her behalf. “The jury found that she did not have the material for terrorist purposes which was an important part of her case,” he said. “She now wants to get on with her life.”
Inayat Bunglawala, of the Muslim Council of Britain, welcomed the decision to suspend the sentence. “Samina Malik was being prosecuted in effect for a thought crime because she had downloaded some material from the internet which anyone could download.”
The Crown Prosecution Service said: “Samina Malik was not prosecuted for writing poetry. Ms Malik was convicted of collecting information, without reasonable excuse, of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.”
