The BBC Funded Terrorist Documentary, Paintball Trip

A report by the London Times tells that the BBC funded a documentary and a paintball trip for terrorists in 2005.  Not only that, but when it became clear that the Islamic terrorists they helped were the ones who carried out the failed subway attack, they didn’t bother to tell the British authorities. The documentary, called “Dont Panic, I’m Islamic”, produced by an Islamofascist imam by the name of Mohammed Hamid, was televised in June of 2005. 

On 7 July 2005,  Hamid and his slimy cohorts were part of a group of that carried out the attack on London’s subway system, as well as the subsequent 21 July bus bombings.

The BBC funded a paintballing trip for men later accused of Islamic terrorism and failed to pass on information about the 21/7 bombers to police, a court was told yesterday.

Mohammed Hamid, who is charged with overseeing a two-year radicalisation programme to prepare London-based Muslim youths for jihad, was described as a “cockney comic” by a BBC producer.

Yeah, I bet ol’ Mohammad’s a fucking barrel o’ laughs.

It gets worse. Apparently the ‘paintball trip’ was a precursor for a terrorist training:

The BBC paid for Mr Hamid and fellow defendants Muhammad al-Figari and Mousa Brown to go on a paintballing trip at the Delta Force centre in Tonbridge, Kent, in February 2005. The men, accused of terrorism training, were filmed for a BBC programme called Don’t Panic, I’m Islamic, screened in June 2005.

The BBC paid Mr Hamid, an Islamic preacher who denies recruiting and grooming the men behind the failed July 2005 attack, a £300 fee to take part in the programme, Woolwich Crown Court was told.

It was alleged that Mr Hamid told a BBC reporter that he would use the corporation’s money to pay a fine imposed by magistrates for a public order offence.

The depraved indifference on the part of BBC programming personnel is sickening:

Nasreen Suleaman, a researcher on the programme, told the court that Mr Hamid, 50, contacted her after the July 2005 attack and told her of his association with the bombers. But she said that she felt no obligation to contact the police with this information. Ms Suleaman said that she informed senior BBC managers but was not told to contact the police.

Ms Suleaman told the court that Mr Hamid was keen to appear in the programme. She said: “He was so up for it. We took the decision that paintballing would be a fun way of introducing him.

“There are many, many British Muslims that I know who for the past 15 or 20 years have been going paintballing. It’s a harmless enough activity. I don’t think there is any suggestion, or ever has been, that it’s a terrorist training activity.”

The court was told previously that Mr Hamid taunted police on his return from an alleged terror training camp in the New Forest where exercises included somersaults, pole-vaulting and paintballing.

Ms Suleaman said she was not aware that Ramzi Mohammed and Hussein Osman, two of the July bombers, had joined Mr Hamid at the Tonbridge paintball centre on July 3, 2005.

Ms Suleaman said that Mr Hamid was agitated after the July attack. She said: “I think he was worried that perhaps the men might call him because they were on the run at the time. I think he was very, very shocked about the fact that the men he knew were accused of this.”

Duncan Penny, for the prosecution, asked Ms Suleaman if she had told Mr Hamid to go to the police or contacted the police herself. Mr Penny asked: “Here was a man who told you that he knew those individuals who, as I understand it, were still at large for what on the face of it was the attempted bombings of the transport network a fortnight after it happened, and he was telling you he had some knowledge of them? There was a worldwide manhunt going on, wasn’t there?”

She replied: “I got the sense that he was already talking to the police. I referred it to my immediate boss at the BBC. I wasn’t told that there was an obligation. In fact it was referred above her as well. It was such a big story.” She added: “I don’t think it’s my obligation to tell another adult that he should go to the police.”

Yeah, I bet the subway victims are doubled over with laughter:

……Phil Rees, who produced the show, told the court that he was impressed by Mr Hamid’s sense of humour while looking for someone to appear in the documentary. He said: “I think he had a comic touch and he represented a strand within British Muslims. I took it as more like a rather Steptoe and Son figure rather than seriously persuasive. I saw him as a kind of Cockney comic.” Mr Rees, who now works for the Arabic TV station al-Jazeera, gave Mr Hamid a signed copy of his book Dining With Terrorists.

Mr Hamid is charged with Mr al-Figari, 42, Mr Brown, 41, Kader Ahmed, 20, and Kibley Da Costa, 24. Atilla Ahmet, 43, has admitted soliciting murder.

The trial:

Five men have gone on trial accused of their part in a plot to create terrorist training camps in the UK.
Among the five, who deny the charges, is Mohammed Hamid, accused of inciting young Muslims to commit acts of terror.

Prosecutors at Woolwich Crown Court said Mr Hamid, 50, from east London, set up camps attended by 21/7 plotters.

The five are said to be linked to Atilla Ahmet, 43, of south-east London, who, it was revealed, pleaded guilty to soliciting murder in a separate case.

Mr Hamid, of Clapton, stands accused alongside Mousa Brown, 41, of Walthamstow, east London; Kibley da Costa, 24, of West Norwood, south-east London; Mohammed Al-Figari, 42, of Tottenham, north London; and Kader Ahmed, 20, of Plaistow, east London.

A number of young men who attended camps organised by Hamid were in fact involved in attempts to kill and seriously injure passengers on the London transport network on 21 July, 2005

……The prosecution told jurors that Mr Hamid was involved in the radicalising of young Muslims for two years from 2004.

Alleged terrorist training took the form of camping trips and paintballing excursions around Britain, said David Farrell, prosecuting.

Mr Farrell added that the trips were intended to “foster within the participants that they were training for ‘Jihad’ against the ‘Kuffir’, or non-believers”.

……Mr Farrell added: “At meetings held at Hamid’s home address and elsewhere, the methods of Hamid and Ahmet involved the encouragement of the use of unlawful violence in the name of Islam.”

……The court heard that some of those involved in the failed 21 July attacks also met at Mr Hamid’s home.

……The jury heard surveillance tapes in which Mr Hamid was also heard to discuss the 7/7 attacks.

“How many people did they take out?” he is heard asking.

When given the reply of “52” Hamid then said: “That’s not even breakfast for me. That’s not even breakfast for me in this country.”

……Jurors were told that Mr Hamid’s home was bugged by police from September 2005.

When the defendants were arrested, material including CDs and DVDs containing recordings of murders, beheadings and suicide bombings were seized from their homes, Mr Farrell said.

Four of them, Muktar Said Ibrahim, Yassin Omar, Ramzi Mohammed, and Hussain Osman were sentence to life in prison in July of this year.

And it continues:

Oct 10, 2007 – UNITED KINGDOM – A top aide to jailed radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri has pleaded guilty in a London court to encouraging others to commit murder in connection with a plot to organize terrorist training camps across Britain. Atilla Ahmet, a British citizen of Turkish Cypriot descent, used to work for al-Masri, who is serving a seven-year sentence in Britain for urging his followers to kill non-Muslims. Five other British men on trial for charges related to the alleged terror camps – Mohammed Hamid, Mousa Brown, Kibley da Costa, Mohammed Al-Figari, and Kader Ahmed – have pleaded not guilty.

Rees, and the rest of those BBC pukes need to be charged with complicity in the form of withholding evidence under the 2000 UK Terrorism Act. As a matter of fact, they should be charged with out-and-out abetting. There’s no way in hell they could not have known they were cavorting with a terrorist cell.

Both Rees and Suleaman knew there was an ongoing investigation and nationwide manhunt for the terrorists they did business with, but withheld the information.

The ‘Beeb’, known for its ‘fifth column’ proclivities, is now part and parcel to al Qadea.

  1. At the time it was not illegal for Muslims to go paintballing.

    Hey wanker:
    Islamic paintball, anyone?

    Read:

    Paintball imams spread militancy

    Activity days are ‘front’ to recruit young Muslims
    Abul Taher and Ali Hussain
    THE party of youths pulled on their blue overalls, snapped shut their visors and, taking aim with their paintball guns, prepared for four hours of licensed mayhem.
    But the men who pursued each other last Sunday morning through the wooded grounds of Delta Force’s paintballing park near Congleton, Cheshire, had little in common with the stag parties and company teams nearby.

    Instead of listening to corporate pep talks between sessions, the young Asian men were instructed by an imam dressed in fatigues on the need to unite Muslims worldwide in an international empire.

    One senior member of the group, who is a member of Hizb-ut-Tahrir (HT), which Tony Blair has proposed should be banned, insisted that devout Muslims should refuse to vote in British elections.

    HT, a group that preaches against the existence of Israel, has been described as a “conveyor belt to terrorism” by critics even within the Muslim community, though it says it eschews violence. It is banned in several Arab countries, and banned by the National Union of Students from British university campuses.

    The day before, in an unrelated operation, police had raided a Muslim school, set in woodland near Crowborough, East Sussex, in an investigation into alleged terrorist training camps in Britain.

    There have also been fears that terrorist training camps were being held in the Lake District and north Wales, and the terrorists Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer went on a whitewater rafting “bonding” trip in Wales before the London bombings of July 2005.

    Undercover Sunday Times reporters were present last Sunday to witness first-hand the early stages of the radicalisation of young Asians by Islamic militants.

    The reporters watched 10 youths, in their late teens or early twenties, arrive and were invited to join the session. During a lull in the game, they were approached by an imam, Ahsraf Bader, 34, who was with the group.

    Bader, wearing a fleece jacket and jeans, described Osama Bin Laden as a “Muslim brother” and said it was the “responsibility” of every Muslim to bring back the caliphate, or a pan-Islamic government.

    Kasim Shafiq, a senior member of the group and who said that he was a member of HT, declared that Muslims should not vote in British elections. “Our own shahadah [creed] tells us that the authority and law do not belong to the non-Muslims, so why are we going to vote for non-Muslims?” he said.

    Shafiq, 27, an IT specialist, added: “If you think that you can win power, if you look at the logistics of how this country works . . . you’ve got to change the [minds and opinions of the] whole of the cabinet towards Islam, you’ve got to change the whole of the army towards Islam, then you will gain power.”

    Was it illegal to train for blowing things and people up in the name of ‘allah’, at the time?
    Nothing like sympathetic leftwing media hacks to help turbaned thugs improve on their shoot and move tactics.

  2. The prosecution are not alleging Hamid had any connection to Al Qaeda. The prosecution are not alleging that Hamid had any knowledge of the activities of the 21/7 guys or that he had any contact with them after he fell out with them almost a year earlier.

    Hey wanker,
    Have you read the information on Hamid? From the above article:

    A number of young men who attended camps organised by Hamid were in fact involved in attempts to kill and seriously injure passengers on the London transport network on 21 July, 2005

    He was up to his Islamist ass in the involvement of terrorist planning and activities. Keep trying.
