Refugee Fatah Abdullah Jailed for Mass Casualty Terror Plot to Show Victims ‘Islam Is Here’
An Iranian refugee and Islamic State “fanatic” in Britain was jailed for inciting two Islamists, who arrived in Europe during the migrant crisis, to commit a mass act of terror by driving into a crowd in Germany and hacking to death any survivors with meat cleavers and swords. He told the migrants to commit the act of terror to show the victims that “Islam is here”.
Fatah Mohammed Abdullah, 35, a resident of Newcastle, had pleaded guilty in Liverpool Crown Court in March 2020 to assisting Ahmed Hussein (also known as Shahin Fatah) and his cousin Omar Babek (also known as Hersh Fatah) to commit acts of terrorism in their resident country of Germany. German courts had prosecuted Hussein and Babek in 2019, both sentenced to four years and eight months’ imprisonment.
Abdullah was sentenced to “life” imprisonment on Friday, with a minimum period of only nine years before he can be considered for release on parole.
The Iranian had come to the United Kingdom in 2005 seeking asylum and his initial asylum application was rejected. He was sectioned in 2007 after being diagnosed as mentally ill, and a subsequent asylum application was approved in 2010, according to The Telegraph.
Authorities had arrested Abdullah after a joint operation by Counter Terrorism Policing North East and Northumbria Police, who raided his property on December 11th, 2018, following an intelligence-led investigation.
Investigators found materials used to make improvised explosive devices. In addition, they found fuses, a balaclava, and a bushcraft knife. He had also recorded himself explaining how to test a remote control detonator and shared the video with his two conspirators in Germany.
Police also found a “significant amount of material on Abdullah’s digital devices showing his affiliation and support for [the Islamic State]” — with the Crown Prosecution Service referring to him as an Islamic State “fanatic” — “and extreme violence”.
His mobile phone contained Islamic State propaganda, including footage of children beheading ISIS prisoners, animations of explosions at well-known British landmarks, and the images of the aftermath of the Manchester Arena terror attack, which was committed by Salman Abedi, an Islamist son of Libyan refugees.
