British Airways worker met Islamic extremist in 'John Le Carre moment' at Heathrow Airport 'to plot blowing up jet'


Good ol'Karim.

It is alleged Karim led a double life as a quiet family man in front of work colleagues at the Newcastle call centre, while remaining 'entirely committed to the an extreme jihadist and religious cause'.

I wonder if anyone has an idea when all this will be over ~ 20 years ~ 50 or 100?

Shari'a law teaches Muslims are superior ~ that is what they have in their own countries [a simple check to see how many restrictions that apply to Christians and other non-Muslims ~ as proof] and this is what they expect should be granted to them everywhere.

Most places that are Islamic, were taken by force ~ this is the first time [maybe not exactly the first] Muslims have had to live alongside others without dominating them. There are no laws that favor Muslims over others here.

These Islamic laws are based on the belief that Muslims are superior ~ this is something that you average Muslim believes ~ that is why they have the dhimmi or subjugating laws for the non-Muslim ~ they practise a religious apartheid in the name of god. In the transition to equality ~ most Muslims will do okay ~ but there will be some who will want to enforce Shari'a ~ they will want to enforce Islamic dominance over other peoples ~ through violent means.

Part of the problem is the lack of the sense of the individual in the Muslim..


A British Airways terrorist sleeper and an associate held a secret meeting at Heathrow in a 'John Le Carre moment', a court heard today.

Rajib Karim, 31, went to Terminal 5 clutching a copy of a newspaper as instructed in a coded e-mail from a friend in Bangladesh known only as 'Brett'.

Karim had been given the codename 'Carl' and was told to look out for 'Terry', a man holding a copy of the Guardian in his left hand and wearing a watch on his right wrist, Woolwich Crown Court.

Karim, who was holding an Independent, met with Terry, real name Yacoub Ali, before flying to Bangladesh to visit family.

The meeting took place in late January or early February 2009, but Karim had been sent detailed instructions the previous November, jurors were told.

The coded message was sent by 'Brett', a conduit between Karim and his younger brother Tehzeeb, informing Karim that a 'brother' he has never met before is coming to Britain, which is referred to as 'Brazil'.

Karim has told the court that the messages were encrypted and coded because of fears for the safety of those still in Bangladesh.

He has denied he and his brother were members of the proscribed terror group Jamaat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), but has admitted fundraising for it and creating a video promoting its work.

Karim's barrister James Wood QC described the Heathrow meeting as a 'John Le Carre moment' - referring to the famous spy writer.

In the message entitled 'Bro has already left for Brazil, 'Brett' wrote: 'He will have a Guardian newspaper in his left hand and a watch on his right wrist. His name is Terry and yours is Carl.

'You will have an independent newspaper with you. Introduce yourself or ask him if he is Terry or any way you think is appropriate.' Mr Wood also referred to the incident as the 'secret flower meeting'.

Karim admitted meeting Ali at terminal five before he flew to Bangladesh.


Trial: Rajib Karim, 31, went to Terminal 5 clutching a copy of a newspaper to meet Yacoub Ali, the court heard
'Did he have a copy of the Guardian,' asked the barrister.

'He did,' replied Karim.

'Did you carry an Independent?' said Mr Wood.

'I did,' said Karim.

Karim, a BA software engineer, is accused of conspiring with radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki to blow- up a US-bound plane.

The preacher instructed him to take advantage of strike action at the airline to train as cabin crew with the aim of getting a package on board an aircraft, it is said.

Giving evidence Karim has said he would 'never' have launched a terror attack in the UK.

He has told the court he was focused on raising money for and spreading the message of JMB and at times felt 'useless' while living in Newcastle.

Karim spent two years working on a four-part two-and-a-half hour long video on the plight of JMB but admitted there was 'not much' impact when it was released in December 2008.

He added: 'In Islam what we believe is if you put in the effort, whatever happens, if you don't get the results in this life you will get rewarded and that is what I feel.'

Karim also claimed his brother Tehzeeb was 'ambitious but not realistic' about his plans for JMB.

It is alleged Karim led a double life as a quiet family man in front of work colleagues at the Newcastle call centre, while remaining 'entirely committed to the an extreme jihadist and religious cause'.

He was arrested in February last year after communicating with al-Awlaki for about a month using coded messages sent over the internet.

Karim, from Newcastle, denies four further counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts.

He has pleaded guilty to charges relating to producing a video for a terrorist organisation, fund-raising, and offering himself and encouraging others to volunteer for terrorist operations abroad.

The trial continues.
