Definitely not Abdurraouf Eshati, 29, (pronunciation: Ab-doo-ah-ROOF is-SHIT-ty works for us) who claims to be from Wales but was busted with a bunch of other dodgy Arabs exploiting Europe’s open borders. CNN reports:
The prosecution said Eshati had been among 20 people found in a truck after police searched it in Dover, a English port close to the entrance to the Channel Tunnel linking Britain and France.
“He was challenged and searched after he was seen by an officer to be acting suspiciously and using his phone,” a Crown Prosecution Service statement said. “Following a search of his phone, two documents were found which led to his arrest and charge for possessing a collection of information likely to be of use to a person preparing or committing an act of terrorism.”
Gee, what did he have?
…false papers that Eshati had given to an immigration tribunal in 2012
Well, what’s the big deal? All these guys give false papers. Here in the USA, if they don’t know how to get them, false documents and stolen identities are all part of the friendly services provided by immigration lawyers and a network of open-borders non-profits. What’s so special about Abdurraouf here?
Everyone knows the papers are forged or stolen, including the immigration judges, who are generally elevated from the ranks of the immigration lawyers who act as coin-operated middlemen between the forgers and thieves and their huddled clients yearning to live for free.
So what’s so special about this one turd blossom?
…an invoice for … the hiring of a cargo plane to be used in Libya.
…images on his mobile phone showing an invoice for ammunition worth $28.5 million…
First reaction: envy his ammo budget.
Second reax: OK, that looks bad, but surely we defame Abdurraouf by calling him a terrorist?
Well, except he doesn’t think it’s defamation, calling him by the name he has earned. He pled guilty. And the fact that using information in his phone, police seized warehouses of weapons in Italy and rolled up a whole network of jihadi arms smugglers.
One of the details CNN leaves out: according to the BBC, he didn’t just live in Wrexham, Wales, UK, but he lived in the jihadi/terrorist mosque there, the Wrexham Islamic and Cultural Centre. (Islamic Culture? That’s what they do with orange jumpsuits and knives). Why did he live in the mosque? He was one of the imams. CNN spares you that knowledge, you delicate flower, you. After all, he wasn’t the main imam. (What does that guy have on his phone, an invoice for $100 million in nerve gas?) Some more deets from the BBC:
Eshati was caught trying to get to France in the back of a lorry with 19 other people at the port of Dover in Kent on 30 November, last year.
On his mobile phone, police found an invoice from an arms supplier for the sale and delivery of ammunition to Tobruk in Libya and a document about chartering a cargo jet for £163,000 for use in Libya.
Eshati also had images on his phone of militia group activists, a beheading and armaments in action which, the prosecution said, showed his allegiance to the Zintan people.
The court was told electronic documents found outlined a plan to send 1,100 tonnes of ammunition to Libya, via a contact in Italy, in support of the Zintan people there.
During their investigation, police searched Eshati’s room at Wrexham Islamic Cultural Centre where they found a number of letter-headed documents which were blank, apart from a stamp and a signature which the prosecution said was a forger’s kit.
The image on the right is some of his $28.5 million worth of Religion of Peace stuff, as intercepted in Italy.
Sure, Abdurraouf was on his way out of the UK to France, making the usual use terrs and crims make of the Schengen Agreement, but what about terrs coming in?
Relax. We got them too. Go to the Daily Mail to meet Mehdi ben Nasr. This upstanding chap turned up in a shipment of “refugees” that was all jihadis, and it turns out he , too, has a history:
Mehdi was one of 14 Algerians and Tunisians arrested in 2007 including two in London. Ali Ben Zidane Chehidi and Mohamed Salah Ben Hamadi Khemiri, were arrested in the UK accused of forging documents for jihadis. They were extradited to Italy but eventually cleared.
The group, which had been under investigation since 2003, set up ‘Salafist jihadi’ militant cells which recruited and assisted would-be suicide bombers.
They were also accused of illegal immigration, falsifying identity documents and helping hide people sought for terrorist activity.
Who’s next? Hassan ben Sober and the Emir of Schmo?
