EDL ringleader jailed for racist violence

Friday 12th December 2014

A VILE English Defence League ringleader who “enjoyed every minute” of violent scenes that included torching a Pakistani flag during a rally was jailed yesterday alongside fellow “racists.”

Lee Joshua, who was sentenced to 16 months, was among 200 EDL supporters who left 30 police officers injured after pelting them with paving slabs and bottles during the disorder in Birmingham in July last year.

Mr Joshua, who later posted an image of himself burning a copy of the Koran on Facebook, was said to be at the forefront of attempts to break through police lines despite being on crutches.

He was sentenced along with fellow EDL supporters Jake Hill, who was jailed for 22 months, James Harrington, who got two years and Adam Beebee who received 13 months.

Passing sentence on the men, who all admitted violent disorder, Judge Richard Bond said much of the conduct seen at the EDL rally had been “plainly racist and/or anti-Muslim.”

Crimes That Shook Britain – The London Nail Bomber

22 November 2013

David Copeland (born 15 May 1976) is an English Neo-Nazi militant who became known as the “London Nail Bomber” after a 13-day bombing campaign in April 1999 aimed at London’s black, Bangladeshi and gay communities that resulted in three people killed and more than a hundred injured.

Widely labelled a terrorist, Copeland was a former member of two far right political groups, the British National Party and then the National Socialist Movement. Over three successive weekends between 17 and 30 April, Copeland placed homemade nail bombs, each containing up to 1,500 four-inch nails, in holdalls that he left in public spaces around London.

The first bomb was placed outside the Iceland supermarket in Electric Avenue, Brixton, an area of south London with a large black population. The second was in Brick Lane in the East End of London, which has a large Bangladeshi community. The third was inside the Admiral Duncan pub in Soho’s Old Compton Street, the heart of London’s gay community.

The bombs killed three people, including a pregnant woman, and injured 139, four of whom lost limbs. Copeland was diagnosed by five psychiatrists as having paranoid schizophrenia, while one diagnosed a personality disorder not serious enough to avoid a charge of murder. His plea of guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility was not accepted by the prosecution or jury. He was convicted of murder on 30 June 2000, and given six concurrent life sentences. In 2007 the High Court ruled that he must serve at least 50 years.

Far-right extremist British soldier jailed for two years for building nail bomb

Ryan McGee kept bomb in his room with a collection of weapons

Friday 28 November 2014

A British soldier with far-right political sympathies has been jailed for two years for building a nail bomb.

Ryan McGee, 20, constructed the device and packed it with 181 metal screws, bits of glass and explosives inside a glass jar.

Police discovered the device while they searched a home in Eccles, Greater Manchester, in connection with an unrelated investigation in November last year. Prosecutors said the bomb was “viable”.

Officers also found a collection of guns, knives and extremist right-wing material in McGee’s room, as well as the bomb-making manual The Anarchist Cookbook. The walls of the room had English Defence League (EDL) flags on them.

The soldier, who was arrested whilst serving in Germany, admitted to possessing a document containing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, and to a second charge of making an explosive device.

The court heard McGee kept a journal entitled Ryan’s Story Book with stickers of Scooby Doo and birds on the front filled with drawings of guns, machetes, knuckledusters and knives and images of several paramilitary soldiers. It also contained references to right-wing groups such as the National Front, KKK and BNP, the court heard.

At sentencing, Recorder of London Brian Barker said the device could have done damage “in the wrong hands”.

“The fact of the matter is any explosive device in the wrong hands could cause untold misery to anyone on the receiving end. Sadly, we live in a violent age. Let’s be quite clear that any experimentation by anybody with these kinds of weapons must lead to severe sentences.”

Following the sentencing, Detective Superintendent Simon Barraclough, from the North West Counter Terrorism Unit, said McGee had “stepped well over the mark of what can be considered acceptable behaviour”.

“McGee had in his possession a viable improvised device and the material and knowledge of how to make it. He clearly set out to make the device, which could have seriously injured or possibly killed members of the public,” he said.

Many people across Norway will honour the victims of the July 22nd 2011 attack on Oslo and the island of Utøya.

77 people were killed and around 90 wounded in the terror attacks carried out by Anders Behring Breivik.

On Tuesday, Oslo marks the third anniversary of the massacre with a public forum at government headquarters, at the water mirror towards Akersgata. It will be opened by John Hestnes, assistant leader of the National Support Group, formed after the killings.

Following this, the AUF (Workers’ Youth League) chairman, Eskil Pedersen, and prime minister Erna Solberg will make speeches. The prime minister will lay down a wreath, and there will be a minute’s silence to remember the victims. Representatives from the Norwegian government and parliament will be present.

There will be a performance by Norwegian pianist and singer Maria Mohn.

At 12am there will be a service of hope in Oslo cathedral. Crown Prince Haakon will be present among others.

The full Oslo event will be broadcast directly across Norwegian media.

Anders Breivik massacre: Norway’s worst nightmare. The murder of 77 people by Anders Breivik in Norway is the subject of Åsne Seierstad’s chilling new book. Here, she describes the missed opportunities to stop the killer after he bombed Oslo’s government buildings and headed to the island of Utøya. ‘Ha, they’ve assumed it’s Islamic terrorism, he thought. He amused himself listening to the terror experts on the radio saying the bombing pointed to al-Qaida.': here.

Anders Breivik not first terrorist linked to EDL

People oppose the EDL because of what it is, not because of what some EDL activists say they’d like it to be, and the facts are simple – the EDL is being used as a Trojan horse by Nazis and BNP activists.

Norway killer Breivik wrote to German far-right suspect: Spiegel

BERLIN | Sun Nov 18, 2012 12:08pm EST

Anders Behring Breivik, who slaughtered 77 people in Norway last year, has written to a far-right gang member in Germany charged with helping in a series of racist killings, calling her a hero of national resistance, a German magazine reported.

Der Spiegel weekly reproduced on Sunday part of the letter the far-right Breivik sent to Beate Zschaepe, charged this month with involvement in the murders of nine immigrants – including eight from Turkey – and a policewoman between 2000 and 2007.

Zschaepe was a member of an underground cell called the National Socialist Underground (NSU), which police discovered by chance about a year ago. Two other male members of the gang were found dead.

The case raised concerns that German authorities had underestimated for decades the far-right threat. Several top intelligence officials have resigned since media revealed documents possibly linked to the NSU had been shredded.

Breivik addressed Zshaepe as “Dear Sister”, according to Der Spiegel, in his letter dated May 7, 2012 – a time when he was on trial in Oslo. “We are both among the first rain drops which indicate that there is a massive purifying storm approaching Europe,” the letter read.

“We are both martyrs for the conservative revolution and you should be extremely proud of your sacrifice and efforts. Know that your sacrifice is being celebrated in northern Europe by tens of thousands of cultural conservatives,” he wrote.

Breivik, who set off a bomb in Oslo before going on a shooting rampage on an island where teenagers were on a summer camp, was found sane by the Oslo court in August and jailed for the maximum 21-year term, although this can be extended. He saw himself as a warrior against Islam.

Der Spiegel also reported that Breivik called on Zaepsche to use her trial as a platform to espouse her views, as he had tried to do, but the magazine did not show that part of the letter.

In an interview with Der Spiegel, Federal Prosecutor Harald Range said he believed Zschaepe, who gave herself up, was involved in all the murders. The trio had “planned everything, organized everything and in the end carried out everything together”, he said.
