Abu Izzadeen,one of Britain’s most radical Muslim preachers has been let out of prison early. Izzadeen, you may recall, was jailed for four and a half years last April for inciting and raising funds for terrorism.
Well now, doesn’t that just thrill you…? To know that yet more Muslim extremists will be at liberty to plot and plan the downfall of Britain as we know it?
Douglas Murray, director of the Centre for Social Cohesion, said:
‘Abu Izzadeen and his organisation publicly call for attacks against those whom they see as enemies of Islam.Their ideology not only glorifies violent jihad but teaches their followers that taking part in suicide bombings is their duty as Muslims.
‘The early release of a hate preacher like Abu Izzadeen demonstrates that the British courts are still far away from understanding the very clear and present danger that this country is facing from militant Islamists.’
Izzadeen, and three other defendants now set for early release, are members of Al-Muhajiroun, one of the most radical Islamic groups. Though banned, it has apparently simply changed its name and continued preaching Jihad.
The defendants were prosecuted after preaching violence outside Regents Park Mosque in November 2004. . They urged their audience to join the fight against coalition forces and to donate money to insurgent groups. Izzadeen was also recorded voicing his support for Osama Bin Laden.
Izzadeen, who lives in East London, walked free on Saturday. His release has been celebrated on extremist Islamic websites.
A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: ‘All offenders subject to probation supervision on release from prison have to adhere to a set of strict conditions.’
