Non-Muslims have “sex like donkeys” and deserve to be blown up, says UK jihad plotter
- UK Terror trial: Estranged wife wanted to be ‘fourth lion’
Paragons of moral virtue
The court heard Salma Kabal was trying to reconcile with Mr Ali (right)
The estranged wife of a man accused of plotting a terror attack offered herself as a helper in an attempt to win him back, a court has heard.
In a reference to the spoof film Four Lions, Salma Kabal asked Ashik Ali if she could be the “fourth lion”, Woolwich Crown Court was told.
Brian Altman, QC, prosecuting, said she was snubbed by him and is not on trial.
Mr Ali, 27, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Irfan Naseer, 31, all from Birmingham, deny preparing for terrorist acts.
The jury has heard the trio planned to set off a series of suicide bombs in an attack which prosecutors said would have dwarfed the 7 July 2005 bombings in London and two of the men had received terror training in Pakistan.
Mr Altman told the jury Ms Kabal did not know what the group were planning as Mr Ali withheld details from her.
What a beautiful witness to the mercy and compassion of Allah! “Non-Muslims have ‘sex like donkeys’ and deserve to be blown-up, said ‘terror plot’ leader,” by Tom Whitehead for theÂ Telegraph, October 25 (thanks to JW):
Westerners have ‘sex like donkeys’ so ‘why shouldn’t we terrorise them?’ the alleged leader of a terror plot was recorded saying.The leader of alleged suicide bomb plot said non-believers deserved to be attacked because they “have sex like donkeys”, orgies and took drugs, a court heard.
Ifan Naseer said the whole world was **** and people deserved to be terrorized.
The al-Qaeda inspired gang is accused of plotting to use eight suicide bombers detonating rucksacks packed with explosives in crowded places to cause “mass death” and carnage on the streets of Britain.
Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Ashik Ali, 27, all unemployed from Birmingham, are the alleged “senior members” of the group and were among 12 people arrested and charged last year.
They all deny the charges against them.
Naseer, a trained chemist and alleged ringleader, was secretly recorded by the police trying to justify the plot.
He said: “You know the main thing is bro all this world is **** bro, you like know what it is the only thing which is good yeah, is Allah’s Deen (faith).”
Criticising others, he went on: “They wanna you know have sex like donkeys on the street, they wanna club, act like animals and why shouldn’t we terrorise them, tell me that?”
“No, you think about it, if someone came in your house yeah and started dancing and throughout the night and started basically having orgies and smoking drugs and stuff, yeah, would you do Sabr (Patience) or would you look, you would, you would terrorise them ainit, yeah, there you go, so it’s on Allah’s earth, it’s Allah’s earth, then Allah created it, everybody and Allah gave you everything as well, then you tell me that one.”
Brian Altman QC, prosecuting, told the jury: “He is disdainful of Western values so why should he not terrorise them.”
Naseer also raised the prospect of a second wave of suicide bombers after his group’s plot.
At one stage Naseer is explaining the destruction just a small bomb weighing 1kg could do, “especially if shrapnel like nuts or nails were sellotaped to it”, Woolwich Crown Court heard.
He said: “You put it in the middle (of a street) both ways people at both ends would be harmed.”
He added that “you probably kill about 25 people with one kg one” and “injure about 60, 50”.
Naseer also spoke about using bombs on timers with an alarm clock.
The secret recording was played to the jury, the first time they had heard Naseer’s voice.
He said the “kuffars” – non-believers – would wet themselves and “probably die of a heart attack” because of the noise, which is as loud as “50 bullets together”.
Naseer also talked about 7 or 8 bombs on different places with timers to all go off at the same time. “Boom boom boom everywhere”, he said.
Yesterday it emerged that the cell applied for “pay day loans” to help fund their plot and were worried about exorbitant interest rates suggesting they would not be around to pay it back.
The gang, from Birmingham, also looked in to bank loans worth between Â£15,000 and Â£18,000, Woolwich Crown Court heard.
The group also planned to set up an Islamic learning centre to act as a “beautiful cover” and a mystery benefactor had offered Â£50,000 to help set it up although he did not know about the terror plot….
A beautiful cover indeed!
She offered to be the “lioness” of the group, the court heard.
Mr Ali told his wife he wanted to fight the jihad – or holy war – overseas but did not want to get her involved, the court heard.
Mr Ali said he still loved her but said he did not think she could adapt to fight the jihad abroad, and made reference to drone strikes, the court heard.
Mr Altman said the group made reference to the film Four Lions, in which a group of incompetent terrorists wear fancy dress in a comedy plot, and Mr Ali laughingly told his wife: “Oh, you think this is a flipping Four Lions. We’re one man short, there’s three of us. We ain’t Four Lions yet.”
Ms Kabal replied: “I’ll be your fourth one.”
Mr Ali said: “You can’t be the fourth one.”
Ms Kabal said: “Lioness.”
Mr Altman said: “That may be the arithmetic in the context of the film title, but the comment, couched in a joke, and made in order to divert her, is telling.
“It is telling because it reveals, we suggest, the truth, that there were three of them together but they were not planning a trip abroad to fight jihad.”
The prosecution claims Mr Naseer and Mr Khalid went to the Taliban stronghold of Waziristan, in Pakistan, in the summer of 2011 for training.
In another echo of a plotline in the 2010 film, Mr Ali joked with his wife about blowing up Muslims in Birmingham, the court heard.
As Ms Kabal tried to ask him again about his alleged plans, Mr Ali said: “The General Saab, you know, the command we send from high above, innit, hierarchy is that you should blow your Muslims up man, yeah.
“Blow up all the Muslims around Alum Rock up innit and Washwood Heath and Aston”.
The court heard the group discussed various alternatives to a bomb attack, including mixing poisons into Vaseline or Nivea and then rubbing it on car doors, in an attempt to kill “about 1,000 people”.
In a bugged conversation, the court heard, Mr Naseer recalled: “You know like the door handles on a whole, imagine putting it on whole like area innit overnight and when they come in the morning to work they start touching the, they open the door and then five minutes they die man, all of them start dying and that, kill about 1,000 people.”
Mr Naseer denies five counts, Mr Khalid four and Mr Ali three, all between Christmas Day 2010 and 19 September 2011.
The trial continues.
