Five Muslim Grooming Gang Members From Rochdale Jailed After Hush Hush Trial

5 men jailed

Five Islamic child groomers from Rochdale have have been jailed following yet another Muslim grooming gang trial held in secret with an enforced media blackout in place. It is only now once the trial and sentencing is over that the courts have lifted the imposed reporting restrictions.

It is almost standard procedure now that reporting restrictions are put in place when ever a gang of Muslim paedophiles are on trial for abusing mostly vulnerable white British schoolgirls. The media blackout helps keep the general public in the dark to the huge scale of the Muslim grooming gang epidemic happening up and down the country.

The logic behind this tactic is quite simple,it keeps the public outrage to a minimum. You can’t kick off about something that you have no idea about in the first place.
If the press had reported on a daily basis throughout the  trial about the horrors committed by these repulsive Muslim sexual deviants. like  how they preyed on young  vulnerable white school girls, plied them with drink and drugs or passed them round like a bit of halal meat amongst their fellow Muslim paedos. Then by the end of the court case the chances are most of the nation would of seen or heard something about it.Creating a great deal of public fury and once again asking awkward questions of both the Muslim community and the local authorities. Also increasing the possibility of some kind of demo which would then not only increase police costs but risk further highlighting the Muslim grooming gang epidemic even more.
Instead the powers that be would rather wait till its all done and dusted ,slipping the news out on the quiet in the hope that the majority of people don’t find out about it.

One of those sentenced last week at Manchesters Minsull Street Crown Court was serial sex attacker Mohammed Miah. The married take away worker has a long history of sexual assaults preying on vulnerable young girls in the Rochdale area.

Jailing Miah for 12 years Judge John Potter said he has a “dreadful record of sexual offending”. Unfortunately Mohammed Miah is already serving a 23-year jail term and the latest 12 year sentence will not be added to that but run concurrent  with it. Mohamed Miah, formerly of Bellshill Crescent, Rochdale, was one of 10 Muslim groomers jailed in April 2016 for sexually abusing a young girl who said she had been repeatedly groomed by a large number of Muslim men in Rochdale. His identity can now be revealed after reporting restrictions against naming him were lifted by the court.

Miah, known to one victim in this case who he had met a day earlier as “Ali”, bought her alcohol and drove her from Rochdale to a North Wales beach where he threatened to leave her if she did not have sex with him. She told him tearfully to stop halfway through sex but the defendant ignored her pleas and continued to rape her. The victim was described as “extremely vulnerable” and had a chaotic lifestyle after she was effectively abandoned by her parents in her early teens.
Another “vulnerable” victim of takeaway cook Miah, who also knew him as “Ali”, was repeatedly violently raped in 2005 when she was aged 14 or 15 after he bought her vodka. The court heard he had previous convictions for sexual offences as well as the attempted abduction of a 15-year-old girl who he approached in the street in his car in 2009 and falsely claimed her mother had told him to pick her up. Mohammed Miah is the absolute filth of humanity and no doubt when he is released from prison he will re-offend.

Four other men, who were also arrested as part of Greater Manchester Police’s Operation Doublet investigation launched in the wake of the scandal, were jailed alongside Miah.

  • Ashefaq Yousaf, 30, of Rochdale, was jailed for 19 years for four counts of rape involving two complainants. Reporting restrictions against him were also lifted
  • Mohammed Sadeer, 28, of Brimrod Lane, Rochdale, was jailed for 12 years, with an extended licence period of four years, after he was found guilty of one count of attempted rape
  • Joshim Miah, 32, of Yorkshire Street, Rochdale, received a seven-year sentence for rape
  • Yousaf’s younger brother, Ittefaq Yousaf, 26, of Stanley Street, Rochdale, was convicted of sexually assaulting one girl and inciting another to engage in sexual activity. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail and received an additional two-month sentence for a separate case of possessing and distributing an indecent image of a child.

Lutfur Rahman Ally Jailed For Housing Fraud : Tower Hamlets Corrupt Muslim Mafia

`A Tower Hamlets councillor and a close ally of corrupt former Mayor Lutfur Rahman has been jailed for fraud.

Criminal Councillor and part of Rahmans / IFE  East London Muslim Mafia
Criminal Councillor and part of Rahmans / IFE East London Muslim Mafia

Tower Hamlets councillor Shahed Ali was sentenced to five months in prison after admitting the offence. Ali, who has been disqualified from office, was a supporter of the Muslim extremist Mr Rahman and served in his Cabinet before the former Mayor was kicked out of office in disgrace after being found guilty of electoral fraud last year.

The jailed Muslim was first elected under the banner of  traitor George Galloway’s Respect Party. Then re-elected as representing Lutfur Rahman’s now banned Tower Hamlets  First. Both parties have ties to extremist East London based group Islamic Forum Europe. THF and Lutfur were said by many to be little more than IFE fronts to control the area and further Islamization. IFE and its front groups received millions in council grants during Rahmans time as mayor. IFE are the UK branch of extremist group Jamaat-e-Islami whose overall goal is a Muslim world living under sharia.

The 45-year-old Muslim is thought to have cost the council over £70,000 in legal fees.He spent months denying the charges .Refusing to stand down from his position and continuing to claim full expenses. But pleaded guilty on the first day of his trial last month.If he had pleaded guilty when first accused on December 9 last year the cost would reportedly have been less than £4,000, the council said.

The former councillor has been given a 22-week sentence under the 2006 Fraud Act for not disclosing information about his changed circumstances when applying for a council house. Ali failed to notify the council of the change between the date he completed a housing application form and the date he accepted a council tenancy, while under a duty to do so. He failed to tell the authority that he owned two properties.

Councillor Ali was also registered to vote at two addresses with votes cast in his name for both. His case was cited by the judge in Mr Rahman’s election fraud trial as an example of the dishonesty that surrounded the disgraced former mayor.Although the judge pointed out that evidence of both ballots plainly showed something was wrong, the police decided there was insufficient evidence to charge him with electoral fraud, enraging anti-corruption advocates who claimed this was another example of the Met Police turning a blind eye to obvious wrong-doing.

Cllr Peter Golds, Isle of Dogs councillor and Conservative group leader said:

“Shahed Ali is the second Rahman supporting Tower Hamlets councillor jailed for housing fraud. The property that he illegally secured while owning a former council flat where he allegedly lived, a former council flat which he rented out, a restaurant with flats at Frinton on Sea could and should have been made available to one of the 20,000 families on the council waiting list.

“This man could have resigned from the council when his fraud became known, instead he continued to trouser over £10,000 in council allowances, while doing nothing for the people that he was elected to serve.

“He is gone now but the stench of the Tower Hamlets First corruption still hangs over the town hall.”

 

Yorkshire Ripper: Serial Killer Peter Sutcliffe To Become A Muslim In Prison

Peter Sutcliffe Yorkshire Ripper HMP Frankland

Reports today claim that the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe is converting to Islam. The sadistic serial killer was recently transferred from his cushy pad in Broadmoor to Cat A prison HMP Frankland in Durham. Now fearing for his life from fellow lags who dont take to well to sex offenders and woman killers. The monster is ready to convert to Islam for protection from Muslim gangs  and the extra perks he will receive. 

Islam is certainly the right religion for Sutcliffe that’s for sure. Islam will happily take the absolute filth of humanity. Much like the Yorkshire Ripper  the very nature  of Islam is rotten to the core.  Women hating, murder and sexual deviancy were all traits of Islams founder and perfect Muslim, Mohammed. Both also used voices from God to justify their vile actions

SERIAL KILLER: Peter Sutcliffe has already had death threats since he moved to HMP Frankland

Serial killer Peter Sutcliffe has already had death threats since he moved to HMP Frankland.

And now Muslim gang members have offered to take him under their wing – but only if he converts to Islam.

They told the 70-year-old monster that changing faith will also allow him access to a special diet.

In addition, he will get more time out of his cell and the right to refuse certain types of prison work.

Sources informed the Daily Star Sunday that Sutcliffe has faced daily threats to his life since arriving at the Durham jail.

Peter SutcliffeRIPPER: Muslim gang members have offered to take Sutcliffe under their wing

Inmates have also verbally abused and spat at him.

Frankland Prison is regarded as one of the toughest in Britain.

It is home to serial killers and some of the country’s most violent offenders.

Four years ago, child rapist Mitchell Harrison, 23, was disembowelled by two lags inside the jail.

Prisoners have told Sutcliffe the same fate awaits him.

It is understood he was approached by a member of an Asian gang while being escorted back to his cell.

One Muslim inmate told Sutcliffe he was a marked man in prison and would be dead within a month unless he had friends to protect him.

It is understood that the gang has arranged for Sutcliffe to have a meeting with a prison imam – a Muslim cleric – in the next few weeks.

The same gang also befriended serial killer Levi Bellfield, 48, who converted to Islam while doing time in another jail.

He is now known as Yusuf Rahim.

 Frankland PrisonNORTH NEWS

THREATS: Frankland Prison is regarded as one of the toughest in Britain

Bellfield, also a Frankland inmate, is serving a wholelife sentence for the murder of 13-year-old Milly Dowler, 19-year-old Marsha McDonnell and Amelie Delagrange, 22.

A source said: “HMP Frankland is ruled by gangs and you are either in a white gang, black gang or Asian gang.

“If you are a child killer, rapist or a mass murderer, the only gang who are going to let you in are the Muslims but you have to convert to Islam.”

Sutcliffe, who was convicted in 1981 of murdering 13 women and attempting to kill seven more, lost his fight to remain in Broadmoor secure hospital almost two weeks ago.

He was sent to the facility in Berkshire in 1984 after being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.

JAIL: Sutcliffe has faced daily threats to his life since arriving

But a health tribunal ruled last December that he no longer needs treatment for the mental disorder.

His move to Frankland will save taxpayers around £250,000 a year. Sutcliffe, from Bradford, preyed on women in West Yorkshire and Manchester from 1975 to 1980.

The beast, who worked as a lorry driver during his reign of terror, usually beat them to death with a hammer before mutilating their bodies.

During his trial, Sutcliffe claimed that God had ordered him to murder his victims.

The former gravedigger said the voice came to him from the headstone of a Polish man in a cemetery where he worked.

CPS Drop Trumped Up Assault Charges Against Tommy Robinson Due To Lack Of Evidence

Trumped up assault charges against Tommy Robinson have now been dropped due to a lack of evidence. Which is no surprise really as there was none to start with. Just another state stitch up to try and silence any kind of opposition to the spread of Islam. Reading Tommy Robinson’s book ‘Enemy Of The State’ will leave you in no doubt as to the lengths the establishment will go to do this.

 

13:06Saturday 16 April 2016
The former leader of the English Defence League has had a court case against him dismissed.

It was announced on Thursday that charges against Stephen Yaxley-Lennon – better known as Tommy Robinson – of assault by beating were dropped and the case dismissed because of a lack of evidence.
Yaxley-Lennon, 33, of Bedfordshire, had been accused of assaulting a man at HMP Peterborough in July last year.

After the case he called it a “stitch up” and thanked people for their support.

Muslim Taxi Driver From Birmingham Jailed For Sex Attack On Passenger

 Muslim taxi driver from Birmingham has been jailed for 7 years for a heinous sex attack on a female passenger.  The girl had asked him to take her to a nightclub to meet friends but that was to hard for the perverted Islamic sex fiend to just do his job, instead he took her to a quiet country lane and forced himself on her.

Despite overwhelming DNA evidence against evildoer Manazar Khan, the selfish coward still wasn’t man enough to admit his vile crime. Instead trying to twist things onto his victim claiming she made the advances and was crying rape.

MUSLIM TAXI DRIVERS RAPE FEMALE PASSENGERS DONT GET IN STAY SAFE

She wanted to go to a nightclub – but he told her: ‘Let’s chill’

A taxi driver who launched a sex attack on a woman passenger in a deserted country lane has been jailed for seven years.

Manazar Khan, who worked for Erdington-based Galaxy Taxis, forced himself on the victim as he drove her to a nightclub in Sutton Coldfield.

He denied two sexual assault charges and told Warwick Crown Court she made advances towards him.

But a jury took just 80 minutes to find him guilty.

Passing sentence, Recorder Steven Evans said the offences were a serious breach of the trust women placed in taxi drivers.

Khan, 30, formerly of Holte Road, Aston, struck as he drove the victim from Tamworth to Sutton in July 2014.

The court heard he encouraged her to call him directly rather than use Galaxy’s switchboard after she left her phone in her car on an earlier journey.

He picked her up from a pub but then diverted past the Belfry hotel and leisure complex and stopped his Audi A6 in a farm track off Grove Lane, Wishaw.

Peter Cooper, prosecuting, said he told the victim: “Let’s just chill for five minutes” and leaned over and kissed her.

Ignoring her when she said she wanted to go, he climbed over from the driver’s seat and reclined her seat before pushing up her top and bra and touching and kissing her breasts.

The attack continued but Khan was forced to drive on when another car came down the track.

The victim then asked to be driven home but “unwisely” got back into his car and went to Sutton, Mr Cooper said.

She later reported the attack after her sister and friends realised she was upset.

Khan, who split with his wife over the case and was said to be living with a girlfriend in Lozells, was also ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

He initially told police nothing sexual had gone on and denied driving down the track.

But traces of his DNA were found on her underwear and her DNA was on his shirt.

Sadistic Child Killer Serving Life Converts To Islam In British Prison

Child killer now a Muslim.
Child killer now a Muslim

Sadistic serial killer Levi Bellfield has converted to Islam behind bars and now going by the Muslim name Yusuf Rahim. The evil killer was responsible for murdering 13 year old schoolgirl Milly Dowler after kidnapping her in broad daylight and repeatedly raping her over a 14 hour period before killing the girl.

In a letter published in the Sun newspaper, the beast makes reference  to his new Muslim faith ending the letter with: “Reference my Muslim status, this is between me and the almighty Allah (Subbahana Wata Ala), Inshallah, may be one day, you will find this beautiful faith.”

Evil Bellfield is one of only 55 people serving a whole life sentence in the UK. Currently he is held in the high security Frankland Prison in Durham. One of only 6 Cat A prisons in the UK, it is home to some of the worst of the worst inmates including other sick child killers such as Ian Huntley, OAP serial rapist “Night Stalker” and a whole host of other repulsive sex fiends.  

Not all the prisoners held there are sex offenders, to those other inmates Bellfield and his like are the filth of the inmate population and they would attack them given chance. In fact Frankland has seen several nonces seriously attacked by other inmates including Soham killer Ian Huntley getting his throat slashed and a child rapist disembowelled in his cell.

No doubt Bellfield having a target on his back played a part in his conversion to Islam. Muslim prison gangs rise is down to ‘strength in numbers’. The Islamists will happily recruit anybody they can convert regardless of what they have done and how despised they are. Bellfields conversion will give them another brother on the wing and will be seen as a high profile convert and a possible selling point to convert other sexual deviants to Islam. In return he will receive the protection of the other Muslims should he be targeted 

 

Tommy Robinson In Court On Trumped Up Charges After Defending Himself Against Violent Muslim Prisoner

There was a time when i never believed in conspiracy theories or state persecution. Now i certainly do after witnessing the treatment of Tommy Robinson by British police in their witch hunt against him. Once again hauled before a court on trumped up assault charges after he defended himself against a Muslim inmate who was planning to throw boiling water and sugar in his face whilst held in HMP Peterborough. An incident that had been looked into after the event which he was informed that no further action would be taken. 

Then by pure coincidence just days after announcing his involvement with Pegida, Tommy Robinson is charged for the assault that happened months earlier whilst recalled to Prison that meant him missing an event at Oxford Union where he had planned on speaking about not only Islam but the police vendetta against him. Something he later did at a later date. The video is something of an eyeopener to say the least. Especially the states attempts to silence him and the disgusting treatment by police against his family.

Some further viewing that shows the states persecution against him:

Illegal Immigrant Collecting Money For Mosque Sexually Assaulted Woman

 

Amazing a Muslim sex attacker caught by the Muslim community and handed over to police after details were put on Facebook and somebody recognized him……wouldn’t be anything to do with the victim also being a Muslim also would it. They arent so quick at reporting Muslim grooming gang members who target white schoolgirls preferring to look the other way

A MAN who sexually assaulted a woman while he was out collecting money for a Mosque was jailed for 10 months today (Thursday).

Mohammed Nazir Khan, 63, was caught after members of the Luton Moslem community heard about the attack and cornered him when they saw a man matching his description.

Judge Michael Kay QC told him: “It is to the great credit of the local community that not only did they spot you, but they ensured you were arrested.”

Khan, who was of no fixed address, pleaded guilty on the day his trial was due to start at Luton crown court to sexually assaulting the woman on 4 July this year.

He is an overstayer in the UK and is due to be deported back to Bangladesh when he has served his sentence.

The court heard that he was knocked on doors in Luton collecting money during Ramadan for a foreign mosque.

He went into the hallway of the middle aged woman victim and told her she had a lot of nice things. He grabbed her hands and began to kiss her on the left ear. He then kissed her up her right arm and on her chest, said prosecutor Iestyn Morgan.

She told him to stop and tried to get him out of the house. He tried to go upstairs, but she blocked his path and he kissed her chest again. The woman told him to get out and he kissed her again on the ear and chest. When got to the front door he turned to her and said: “One more. One more.”

He was arrested on July 11 after the details of his actions had been put on Facebook.

When questioned he said he only kissed the victim as a gesture of thanks.His barrister Julie Flanagan said: “He apologises for the upset and discomfort he has caused.The judge said Khan should also register as a Sex Offender for 10 years.

Convicted Muslim Child Groomer Found Guilty Of 2 Unconnected Rapes

A convicted Muslim grooming gang member from Telford has been found guilty of 2 further rapes unrelated to the grooming gang. Nonce Mohammed Ali Sultan was part of a Muslim grooming gang who had sex and pimped out vulnerable schoolgirls in Shropshire. At the time of the trial he was already serving a 7 year prison sentence for those crimes. The sentence of 6 years for this time for the two rapes is not justice being served as it will run side by side his 7 year sentence, meaning its highly likely he will be back on the streets in 4 years time doing the same to other girls as he is a predator of the highest degree and will never change

Telford man jailed for raping teenager

A Telford paedophile has been jailed for six years six years in prison having previously been found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of attempted rape.

Mohammed Ali Sultan
Mohammed Ali Sultan

During his trial, the court heard that between June and August 2007 Mohammed Ali Sultan, 28, attended the house of the victim on several occasions and forced her to have sex and perform sex acts on him.

Sultan, who had originally pleaded not guilty to these offences, is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to two counts of sexual activity with a child and one count of controlling child prostitution in 2012, following a separate investigation.

Following his prison sentence, Sultan, of Victoria Avenue, Wellington, will serve a further five years on license.

DCI Neil Jamieson said: “Today’s sentence is welcomed and clearly indicates the danger Sultan poses to the community.

“This has been a traumatic process for the victim and one which has taken some time to come to a conclusion. I’d like to praise her bravery in coming forward to report offences and for her determination to ensure Sultan has been brought to justice. This further demonstrates the increased confidence people have in coming forward to report such offences in the knowledge that they will be thoroughly investigated and support will be put in place.”

Good Riddance To Abu Hamza The Evil Islamofacsist Rodent

Fantastic news coming from across the water regarding Islamic hate preacher Abu Hamza . The oxygen thief has been given a life sentence by the American courts for his role as in a worldwide campaign of violence. Thankfully the handless hate cleric will not cost the British taxpayers any more money as in America a life sentence almost always means exactly that.

The evil mullah tried to lie his way out of a supermax prison into a prison hospital centre claiming his illnesses and his hooks being confiscated prevented him from functioning normally  in a normal prison and he would need specialist care, Aww didums poor old Abu Hamza, My heart bleeds for him. The best thing that could happen for me is if he was to accidentally fall down some stairs head first with no false hands to break his fall whilst being transferred or to be padded up in a cell with somebody from the Aryian brotherhood or the Mexican mafia,

The terrorist scumbag blew his own hands off whilst bomb making in Afghanistan. Having them replaced by the infamous metal hooks which made he look as much of a twat as he always was. The federal prison system have now replaced the hooks with fake hands with a spoon contraption built in.

“Global export of violence and terror”

In the opening remarks of his trial, the prosecution alleged that Hamza turned London’s Finsbury Park mosque into “the base of operations for the global export of violence and terror.”

“Abu Hamza was not just a preacher of religion,” Edward Kim, assistant US attorney, said in opening arguments. “He was a trainer of terrorists and he used the cover of religion so he could hide in plain sight in London.

In response, the defence said that he may have said some outrageous things, but Nelson Mandela was long listed as a terrorist.

Joshua Dratel portrayed the cleric as an “independent thinker” who was seeking a “third way” between the “extremes” of Osama bin Laden, the late al-Qaeda leader, and George W Bush, the former US president.

Mr Dratel sought to depict his client as a misunderstood historical figure whose inflammatory words are now being taken out of context. “For decades, Nelson Mandela was considered a terrorist and now he is an icon,” he observed. “Things change.”

FUCK OFF YOU UGLY MUSLIM PARASITE
FUCK OFF YOU UGLY MUSLIM PARASITE

 

British “supergrass” testimony

Saajid Badat, a British terrorist “supergrass”, lived at the Finsbury Park mosque, and was seen as a key ally of Hamza’s.

He described meeting Osama bin Laden, and told how the Al Qaeda leader hugged him and “wished me good luck in my mission” at the end of their meeting in Afghanistan in November 2001, two months after the September 11 attacks.

Badat, who was released from prison in 2010 after agreeing to testify in terrorism cases in Britain and the US, also said that he discussed plans for an attack on Canary Wharf with Khalid Sheikh Mohamed, the mastermind of the September 11 atrocities.

Badat testified that he met Feroz Abbasi – another young British Muslim described by prosecutors as a “terror lieutenant” deployed by Abu Hamza – at a jihadi training camp in Afghanistan and translated for him when he was asked if he would conduct attacks on American and Jewish targets.

Mr Abbasi had worked at the Finsbury Park mosque as a security guard before moving to Afghanistan. He was captured by US forces after the overthrow of the Taliban regime in late 2001 and held at the Guantánamo Bay detention centre for four years, but then released without charge.

Yemen hostage Margaret Thompson describes human shield terror

Margaret Thompson was one of 16 Western tourists snatched by terrorists in the Yemen in December 1998, and told of the terrifying moment hostages were used as human shields.

As Yemeni soldiers attempted a rescue, one of the abductors told the British-led tour party: “It’s goodbye to you all.”

Her voice cracking with emotion, Mrs Thompson said: “I hoped he meant there were getting ready to release us but I thought we were going to die.”

Three British tourists and an Australian died in the attack.

Mrs Thompson stared at Hamza as she told the jury how she was shot during the rescue attempt.

“There was much more gunfire at that point. I started to fall forward and hit the ground. I was hit in the leg with a bullet from behind, it was my left leg. I was falling forward and my legs flipped forward under me.

“I fell backwards and slid into a bush. I was wearing a scarf, so I took the scarf off and put it into the wound.

Mrs Thompson, now retired and living in Texas, spent weeks in Yemen and London hospitals having surgery.

Hamza worked with MI5 to keep London safe, says lawyer

Hamza was in reality working secretly with British intelligence “to keep the streets of London safe” by “cooling hotheads”, his lawyer claimed.

Holding up what he said were reports from Scotland Yard, Joshua Dratel described the cleric as an “intermediary” who cooperated with MI5 and the police to try to end foreign hostage-takings and defuse tensions with the Muslim community in Britain.

He said that Hamza expressed his true “intent” in discussions with Scotland Yard and MI5.

“It goes to the theme of our defence that he was an intermediary, thatMI5 asked him on multiple times to act in hostage situations, cool down the community and maintain a sense of order,” he argued.

Praising the 9/11 attacks

The jury was shown videos of him praising the 9/11 hijackers, as they sat in a courtroom a few streets from the scene of the attacks at Ground Zero.

The panel of 12 saw an interview in which Hamza said he was “happy” about the September 11 2001 attacks in which terrorists flew planes in to the World Trade Center.

In another video, the Egyptian-born cleric said that that he approved of the suicide bombing of the USS Cole by al-Qaeda operatives in 2000 which left 17 American sailors dead.

“My wife turned me to Islam”

Hamza claimed it was his first wife, an Englishwoman, who persuaded him to start to study Islam with her because she became interested in the religion, he explained.

“She was persistent,” he said. “She pushed too hard.”

The Egyptian-born cleric worked as a hotel receptionist, a bouncer and even briefly as the co-manager of a strip club in London’s Soho district after moving to Britain in 1979 aged 21, he said.

“They were small jobs to make money and enjoy myself – a normal Western life,” he told the jury after explaining that he came from a non-religious family in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria “where we always looked for a Western life, American style”.

Claims he lost hands in an accidental explosion in Lahore

Hamza has previously claimed he lost his hands and an eye while fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan during the early 1990s.

But during the trial he said he was injured during an explosives accident while working on a road project with the Pakistan military in 1993.

And he admitted he saw little fighting while in Afghanistan where he “fired a couple of bullets” but “it was very quiet when I was there” and he was responsible for health and safety of fighters.

The closing statements

Ian McGinley, prosecuting, summed up the case by telling the court that Hamza “devoted his life to violent jihad.”

He said: “He instructed his followers that jihad fighting was religious war. Why do his words matter? Because they match his actions, they match his crimes.”

But Hamza’s lawyer, Jeremy Schneider, said the government’s case boiled down to incendiary statements that gained the preacher a reputation among radical Muslims – rather than anything he actually did.

“A lot, if not the majority, of their evidence was his words, not his deeds,” Mr Schneider said during his closing remarks

“Can someone who has ranted and raved for years about anti-American statements get a fair trial in front of a New York jury in the shadows of the World Trade Center?

“He cannot keep his mouth shut. That’s how he is. He doesnt avoid the tough questions. Sometimes he’s firey, sometimes he’s engaging.

“He is opening his mouth saying damaging, unflattering things, drawing attention to himself, saying look at me, I’m outrageous, follow me.”
