Preachers 'groomed Muslims for murder'
TWO Islamic preachers recruited, groomed and corrupted young Muslims, taking them to camps across Britain where they trained with members of the failed July 21, 2005 bomb plot, a court has heard.

Attila Ahmet, the ringleader of the alleged group, admitted encouraging others to commit murder, Woolwich Crown Court was told yesterday.

Mohammed Hamid, his apparent co-conspirator, who allegedly told police his name was "Osama bin London", is accused of overseeing a two-year program to prepare a London-based network of Muslim youths for jihad.

Mr Hamid, 50, who was said to have referred to the 52 deaths in the July 7 terrorist attacks as "not even breakfast for me", appeared with four others.

Among those who attended the weekend training camps and Friday night meetings at the east London home of Mr Hamid were the four men convicted of the failed July 21 plot, which aimed to kill passengers on Tube and bus networks in London.

David Farrell QC, for the prosecution, said: "Hamid and Ahmet used the meetings as a grooming mechanism for disaffected Muslim men, slowly and sometimes subtly preparing them and radicalising them for jihad and encouraging them to murder non-believers."

The prosecution claimed that a recording, secretly made by the police, shows Mr Hamid clearly encouraging murder. In one conversation, the preacher is allegedly heard telling an unnamed associate: "We know you have the bottle. You know what happened on the Tube? Four people got shaheed (martyrdom). How many people did it take out?"

The man replies: "Fifty-two."

Mr Hamid allegedly says: "Fifty-two. That's not even breakfast for me."

Mr Hamid, of Clapton, London, Mousa Brown, 41, of Walthamstow, east London, Kibley da Costa, 24, of West Norwood, southeast London, Mohammed al-Figari, 42, of Tottenham, north London, and Kader Ahmed, 20, of Plaistow, east London, deny a number of terrorism charges. Ahmet, 43, the alleged right-hand man of Mr Hamid and leader of their "inner circle", pleaded guilty to three counts of soliciting murder.

The trial continues.

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
