Leading jihadist arrested in Britain
Abu Izzadeen, who called for Muslims in the British army to be beheaded as apostates, and who challenged British sovereignty over a Muslim area of East London, has finally been arrested.
“Preacher held under Terrorism Act,” from the BBC, with thanks to all who sent this in:
A Muslim preacher has been arrested in east London over allegations of encouraging terrorism.Abu Izzadeen was held by in Leyton High Road by counter-terrorism officers, Scotland Yard said….
Mr Reid asked Muslim parents to keep a close eye on their children and act if they suspected they were being radicalised by extremists.
Mr Izzadeen shouted out: “Shame on all of us for sitting down and listening to him.”
He said he was “furious” about “state terrorism by British police” and accused the minister of being an “enemy” of Islam before being led from the building by police and stewards.
