An A grade on his exams — he was clever enough to understand his obligation in Islam: kill the kuffar.
This once again reveals as a lie the common claim that jihadis are uneducated and ignorant.
“Dramatic moment straight A student, 22, who wanted to carry out a terror attack in the UK is arrested in police raid just days before he planned to travel to Syria to join ISIS,” by Thomas Burrows, MailOnline, October 19, 2017:
This is the dramatic moment a straight A student who wanted to carry out a terror attack in the UK is arrested in a police raid just days before he planned to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
Mubashir Jamil, 22, from Luton, told an undercover police officer he wanted to wear a suicide vest and ‘press the button’, the Old Bailey heard at his trial.
He filled out an ISIS application form and offered to blow himself up to bring the ‘taste of immense pain’ to innocent people on British soil following the terror attacks in Paris and Belgium.
Dramatic police head cam footage shows the moment officers charged into his house shouting ‘stay where you are’ and put him in handcuffs just days before he was due to fly to Turkey with Hawaiian shirts and £2,000 cash.
Mubashir Jamil, 22, from Luton, offered to wear a suicide vest and ‘press the button’, the Old Bailey heard.
The once gifted schoolboy denied preparing acts of terror, saying he was hearing voices and wanted to go to Syria to be exorcised of the ‘jinns’ that were plaguing him.
After being found guilty today, he was told he would be sentenced next month.
The court heard how the avid computer gamer became obsessed with ‘martyrdom’ after surfing the web for ISIS propaganda.
He was snared in encrypted chat with an undercover officer, known as ‘Abu Hasan’, and counter-terrorist officers swooped to arrest him days before his Easyjet flight.
Jamil, who suffered from periods of mental illness, made contact with the man he thought was an ISIS agent through the Telegram app, the court heard.
He told him: ‘If you or some brother you know can put an explosive belt on me and tell me how to press, as soon as possible for security reasons, I can do something in the UK even tomorrow after I find a good target.’
He boasted how he was ‘not afraid of violent fighting, getting hurt and tortured and hurting others.’
The defendant, who set up an Argos punch bag at his home to get fit for jihad, went on to say he would ‘prefer hijrah (migration)’.
He also said: ‘I want them to feel another attack while they’re still in mourning for Belgium.’
The court heard how Jamil shaved off his beard following guidance on an e-publication about how to be a ‘secret agent’ in a non-Muslim country.
In early April last year, Jamil, who had never travelled alone before, bought a return flight from Luton to Turkey and stocked up on travel kit, including toiletries from Boots.
He also packed a Hawaiian shirt and other clothing to make it look as though he was going on holiday.
Barnaby Jameson, prosecuting, told the jury: ‘This was not so much sea and sun, as jihad and martyrdom, by EasyJet.’
On April 14 Jamil allegedly asked Abu Hasan: ‘Will I have to buy my own guns in Sham?’ The officer told him not to worry.
The officer persuaded Jamil to send him a copy of his passport, photographs of himself and even a copy of the boarding pass for his flight to Turkey.
Just days before he was due to leave on April 30, counter-terrorist police burst into Jamil’s home on April 27.
At the time, he was on his laptop sending the undercover officer the message ‘police alert’.
He told police: ‘I want to go to and join Islamic State’, adding: ‘It’s easy to arrest me, a lone person. There are other people here who are dangerous and have access to weapons.’
He also said: ‘What will you do when Islamic State reach these shores, they won’t be so easy to stop then. And they will come. The Islamic State…you have tried to stop their rise and you have failed.’ …
