UK: Pro-Terrorism Mother Spared Jail... Because Her Kids Needed Her
Do they not report on all the terror attacks in the UK (see ISIS Claims Credit for Manchester Attack. Leftists Worry About… Islamophobia and Yet ANOTHER Terror Attack Hits UK, This Time London Bridge)? Because a mother-of-five who promoted and celebrated the attacks online avoided jail time because a judge said, and I quote, "the sooner you get back to your children the better."
No, seriously. A woman who loves herself some terrorism so much she promotes it on the Internet, was told she needs to be around her kids. To raise them to be terrorists, probably:
Farhana Ahmed, 40, from north-west London, had been in custody since being charged over the 2015 social media posts while her home-schooled children, aged between six and 16, were cared for by relatives.
Judge Christopher Moss QC sentenced her to a suspended term of two years after she pleaded guilty to encouraging terrorism and three counts of disseminating documents.
The judge was "moved" by a letter from her eldest son and told Ahmed: "In your exceptional case, the sooner you are returned to your children, the better for all concerned."
She praised the Paris terror attacks and her posts included a speech by an IS spokesman and a link to an "extensive online library" of terrorist publications, the court heard.
Ahmed used a fake name to encourage terrorism on the social media site between September and November 2015.
So, a few years down the road, when authorities say there were warning signs but whoopsie we missed them, remember this story right here.
Reminder: freedom of speech isn't a thing in the UK. Policing social media is. Okay? So "We can write whatever we darn well please" is a valid argument in America, not so much in Jolly Olde England. And "freedom of speech" isn't a valid excuse for "inciting violence" either.
Yet this broad was giving the thumbs up and heart emojis to all that European terrorism. Some dingus judge in the UK thought she needed to spend more time quilting and packing
suicide vests school lunches. Maybe the judge was high from huffing the glue from his wig. Or just another English Rube.
Real mystery why terrorism is a problem in the UK, no?
