Two Sudanese Muslim invaders pretending to be “asylum seekers”—one who invaded Britain from Calais on the back of a truck in 2014, and the other who came as a “child asylum seeker”—have been jailed for a total of 26 years after being convicted of a plotting an ISIS-inspired bomb attack over the Christmas holidays.
According to a report in London’s Metro newspaper, Munir Mohammed and Rowaida El-Hassan met on the Muslim dating site SingleMuslim.com and together plotted the attack, using guidance from an ISIS commander on Facebook and El-Hassan’s chemical knowledge from her education at the city’s famous University College.
Mohammed invaded Britain in the back of a lorry from Calais in February 2014, and claimed “asylum” in the UK, despite crossing dozens of safe countries on the way, and breaking every immigration law and rule in the book.
Despite this, he was allowed to stay in the UK while his “application was being processed,” and even enlisted the aid of a local far-left Labour Party Member of Parliament, Margaret Beckett, for help to get his application approved.
While he was waiting, Mohammed took a job at Kerry Foods in Derby, making sauces for supermarket ready meals. He also started looking for alternative ways to get to stay in Britain, and quickly hit upon the tried-and-tested tactic of marrying someone with residency in that country.
This tactic has been greatly enabled by the dating website singlemuslim.com which pairs up Muslim “asylum seekers” with Muslims already legally resident in the UK, and it was on this site that he saw El-Hassan’s profile, the court heard.
At the same time, Mohammed volunteered for an ISIS “lone wolf” mission as he chatted on Facebook with an IS commander—and it was apparently this conversation which drew anti-terrorist police attention.
Mohammed then enlisted the help of El-Hassan, drawing on her knowledge of chemicals needed to make a bomb, based on her pharmacist qualification from University College in London.
At the time of his arrest in December 2016, Mohammed had two of the three components for TATP explosives as well as manuals on how to make bombs and ricin poison, the court heard.
In November 2016, Mohammed got hold of a video containing information on how to manufacture ricin, and in the days before his arrest, Mohammed was captured on in-store CCTV buying acetone-free nail polish remover, in the mistaken belief it was a chemical component of TATP.
When police raided his home on December 12 2016, they found hydrogen peroxide in a wardrobe and hydrochloric acid in the freezer.
El-Hassan, who invaded Britain from Sudan at the age of three as a “child refugee,” told jurors she had sulphuric acid for her drains and got face masks to wear as she dealt with a damp problem in her flat.
Mohammed was sentenced to “life” imprisonment–with a “minimum of 14 years” and El-Hassan was sentenced to 12 years “with five more years on extended licence.”
