UK jails teenager for possessing al-Qaeda's online magazine

LONDON (BNO NEWS) -- A teenager from London was sentenced to more than one year in jail on Friday for possessing copies of al-Qaeda's English-language online magazine, which provides commentary as well as information on how to carry out terrorist attacks, police said.
Mohammed Abu Hasnath, 19, was arrested in October 2011 as he was cycling along East India Dock Road near his house in east London. At the time of his arrest, detectives searched a backpack he was carrying in which they found a USB stick containing several copies of Inspire, al-Qaeda's English-language online magazine.
Inspire was launched by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in July 2010 to attract aspiring jihadis who cannot read Arabic, and it has frequently been found in the possession of terrorism suspects. It offers instructions on bomb-making, weapons training, security measures as well as encryption lessons for beginners. It also offers extremist heavyweight Qur'anic commentary and rudimentary propaganda.
"This is a serious terrorist offence and we hope this will send a clear message that anyone caught in possession of such material can expect to be bought before the courts," said Deputy Assistant Commissioner Stuart Osborne who is the senior national coordinator counter-terrorism.

Only one year? Then he goes out and joins AQAP and trains to attack the West. Send him over to Gitmo. Maybe there he would have 10 years to think about his reading material.

AQAP should watch the (original) Mission Impossible.

The numbers of young people frequenting the websites are exceeded only by the numbers of western and Israeli intelligence and counter-propaganda analysts frequenting the websites.

And my bet is that the guy the Brits picked up had visited the site many times and had been under surveillance for quite a while.

Outside of some leaked classified document relating to national security or something of that nature, care to name a document in the public domain that is illegal to possess? I can go buy the "Anarchist cookbook" right now. I can possess bomb making manuals. (I don't but just making a point). None of them are illegal to merely possess in the USA. It's called the first amendment, something the U.K. does not have.

The UK does not even really have a written constitution.

Parliament (which includes the King or Queen as well as the Commons and the Lords) can pretty much do whatever it wants.

For example, there was no general Parliamentary election held between 1935 and 1945 (10 years!) due to the buildup to WW2 and the actual war.

That would have been a serious constitutional problem in the USA, but not for the UK.

That's why they may slide into a police state so easily.

Let's hope it's not too bloody when Scotland decides to leave the UK, which afterwards would be called the Disunited Kingdom.

They should be illegal to possess.

And where would that illegality end?

Fill a glass bottle 4/5 full of gasoline. Stuff a rag into the neck, leaving a modest tail portruding. Light and toss at target. Various additives can be included (sugar, tar, foam beads, etc) for different effects. You've just created a Molotov cocktail - which has been around since at least the early days of WWII. The recipe already exists in literally millions of published paper works and websites. Are they all (and copies of them) to be considered "illegal"? If so, then this thread and it's browser-cache copy now on your computer have just made you party to that illegality.

You'll only get my Sharpie by prying it from my cold, dead fingers. Unless, of course, you work for the TSA and ask me nicely...

I don't think the TSA asks nicely. In fact they'll probably don blue gloves and pat down your whole body for Sharpies.

And don't ever let them find you with Crayola's. That's a death penalty offense.

I usually call ahead time and ask them in a conference call if I can go through the scanner for chest x-ray. That way they don't mess with copies of lady chatterley's lover on my flash drive.

On the other hand Henry likes the full monty..

A fine example of the retarded mentality of some people. Oh no little Johnny has a sharpie -- call the police!

This sort of idiocy reminds me of a remark I heard at one of the DEFCON talks. Some guy was giving a speech about computer forensics and mentioned that he was the first person ever arrested for port scanning (I think his case was overturned when the judge said port scanning is not the same as breaking into a machine). Someone in the audience said port scanning is still illegal in South Carolina. Someone else jumped up and said:

"Marrying your sister is legal in South Carolina, but port scanning is not."

The crowd erupted with laughter. This is a fine example of the idiocy many people in the legislature have. Actually it's our fault since we vote them in.

Although a check on the marriage law of South Carolina reveals the marrying you sister is illegal. The SC law concerning incest does not appear to cover the marriage of collateral descendants of common ancestors other than siblings, however; i.e., first cousins can marry.
