Finally, an agent provocateur within the British Muslim community will no longer be able to poison the atmosphere.  The ex-Muhajiroon and Al-Ghuraba leader Anjem Choudhury was sentenced for 10 years on terrorism-related charges.

Will Gore, writing in the Independent, noted

Yet Choudary was unquestionably clever with the words he used. For years he teetered along the boundary between freedom of speech and incitement to violence. His frequently expressed hope that one day the flag of Islam would fly over Downing Street was presented as simply a kind of evangelism, a prediction that the religion would eventually be the world’s accepted faith . . . Many of those to whom Choudary preached his silver-tongued messages of hatred went to Syria to fight with Isis: in short, he persuaded impressionable young men to kill for a perverted vision of Islam. click here

The comment from one Muslim  civil society activist,  reflected a widely shared sentiment

Mr Anjem Choudhury has long been condemned by Muslim organisations and Muslims across the country, who consider him and his support for Daesh to be despicable and contrary to the values of Islam and our nation. Many Muslims have long been puzzled why this man was regularly approached by the media to give outrageous statements that inflamed Islamophobia. We hope the judgment serves as a lesson for anyone who follows this path of advocating hate and division.

The Mirror reports,  ‘The verdict came after an intelligence-led operation by police using an undercover infiltrator – known only as “Kamal”. He spent 20 months living among extremists, attending meetings in Luton, Bedfordshire and forming close friendships with them.’ click here.
