British Children Hear Sermon To Kill And Be Killed

From Mirror:
A hate preacher who told children as young as three that martyrdom is the "supreme success" while encouraging support for ISIS at his charity-funded mosque is facing jail.

Iman Kamran Sabir Hussain, 40, asked Allah to "give the Islamic State the victory" during a sermon in Stoke-on-Trent during Ramadan .

His audiences included Asian men and young children aged between three and 15, according to an undercover law enforcement officer named Qasim who recorded some of the meetings.

Toddlers could be heard babbling as Hussain talked about bullets, sword wounds and killing on one of the tapes.

He said: "What's the nature of life? That you are killed, that you kill and that you are killed. This is your part of the fight in the way of Allah, to kill and be killed.

"In return for this Allah will give you an everlasting life of pleasure."

Hussain also referred to an "eternal life of enjoyment" before claiming that martyrdom was "the supreme success".

Children's voices were also heard as Hussain referred to going before Allah on Judgement Day "with the bullet wounds and the sword wounds and you are raised in that situation with the blood still coming from your body".

Hussain was found guilty of six counts of encouraging terrorism and two counts of encouraging support of a proscribed organisation following an Old Bailey trial.

The court heard he was jailed for 14 months in 2008 for perverting the course of justice by intimidating jurors outside a trial he was due to give evidence in as a defence witness.

Hussain, who is linked to Ahmed Musa Jibril, the US preacher said to have influenced the London Bridge terrorists, told jurors he had "absolutely blagged" his sermons after taking over an imam who had a stroke in 2010.

"I didn't imagine it would be like that, I imagined it would be quite bland," he told the court.

"It was somewhat of a surprise to me."

Hussain said martyrs were "standing on the front line defending Islam and the Muslims they answered the call of Allah and the messenger".

Three children aged around five years old were also part of the congregation on August 5 2016 when Hussain allegedly referred to the Islamic State.

Hussain told the crowd: "They stand a black flag and establish the law of Allah over the necks of the people whether they like it or don't like it.

"The King, the Queen, the Prime Minister, whoever it is, they are not in a position to say you are not allowed to establish the law of Allah."

Two weeks later the crowd included 25 Asian males, a young girl aged between two and three years old and ten to 15 children aged between five and 15.

Hussain told the audience that the British Government had created and funded the English Defence League (EDL) and Britain First "to come into your area and attack you and to insult you and to put you down".

A child's voice can be heard in the background as Hussain said: "I am saying stand up and be ready to sacrifice, be ready to spill blood and have your blood spilt in the way of Allah."

Several children were also present on August 26 when Hussain attacked the counter-terrorist Prevent programme, saying: "They want to make Islam intolerable."

Hussain was convicted of encouraging terrorism and encouraging support for ISIS during the sermons between June and September 2016.

He also celebrated the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings which left 52 dead and more than 780 injured on London's public transport network by writing "martyrs are blessed" in a social media post on 7 July 2015.

Prosecutor Sarah Whitehouse, QC, said: "This can only mean those who carried out the bombings are going to be blessed by Allah.

"The date, you may think, gives it all away- the 10th anniversary of 7/7, talk of martyrs being blessed."

During legal argument it emerged that Hussain had Jibril's phone number and shared one of his videos on Facebook.

Hussain, of Stoke-on-Trent, denied but was convicted of six counts of encouraging terrorism between June 24 and September 16 2016 under section 1(2) of the Terrorism Act 2006 and two counts of encouraging support of a proscribed organisation under section 12(3) of the Terrorism Act 2000.

He stood in the dock wearing a skullcap as the jury announced their decision after nine hours and 44 minutes deliberation.
