UK - Terrorists tied to Abu Hamza

The Times (UK) reports.

Muhammad Babar, who has admitted having links to al-Qaeda, was taken to court by armed police amid maximum security to give evidence against his former accomplices.

He allegedly left America days after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, to fight in Pakistan, even though his mother, who worked in the World Trade Centre, had narrowly escaped death when the aircraft hit.

Babar, 31, told the court that he met Omar Bakri Muhammad, the exiled leader of alMuhajiroun, a radical Islamist group, during a visit to Britain. He was later in contact with Abu Hamza and spent time in Pakistan preparing for jihad (holy war) with 15 to 20 “brothers”, mostly from Britain.

There's only 7 in this trial. Who and where are the others?

Guess who else he is connected to?

Babar said that he became a member of Hizb-ut-Tahrir and al-Muhajiroun while at university, when he became angered by the Gulf War.

And here you thought HT wanted to bring about the Islamic state peacefully.

How did Barba learn about all of this?

Babar cited his influences as Abu Hamza and Bakri Muhammad. He followed Abu Hamza’s website proclamations on Sharia and met Bakri Muhammad in person, later communicating with him by e-mail and telephone. The British “brothers”, with him in Pakistan for jihad, were mostly from London and Crawley, West Sussex, he said. The names he listed were, the prosecution says, those used by the defendants while in Pakistan.

This is the price Britain is paying for letting the Muslim preachers of hate roam free.
