Briton is jailed for 15 years in Iraq as a warning to foreig

#1
A STUDENT who slipped into Iraq to fight alongside al-Qaeda militants has been jailed for 15 years in a warning to other Britons not to join groups fighting US-led forces.

Mobeen Muneef looked stunned and close to collapse as the sentence was passed at Central Criminal Court in Baghdad, watched by British and American officials.

Result! Just read the rest of the article for his family's reaction. Priceless.

His sister, Naureen, said: “What has happened to my brother is simply unacceptable. My brother’s fundamental human rights have been breached and the British Government have been spectators in the whole process..."

Seems strange that we need to export our traitors to the Middle East for them to see justice. However, its nice to see the Foreign Office doing something useful for a change. More of the same please.

He should also be stripped of his citizenship, his family warned not to get involved otherwise they will lose their citizenship or they canbe invited to live oina more muslim country, if they didnt like British values.



i feel mutliculturism is now dead, anyone living should embrace British Values and the flag of teh nation representing the union of countries AND people from different backgrounds.


(going to start a thread on that theme)

Muneef left home at 19 to go backpacking and for the past four years has been on an Islamic studies course in Damascus. From there he says that he travelled to Iraq to help a Baghdad charity.
4 Years of brianwashing then....

It always humours me when people arrested for any crime always complain that their civil rights have been violated, whether they be white,black yellow,christian,muslim or pagan. What about the civil rights of the people who they have commited their crimes against.
His lawyer has admitted his guilt by saying 1 year in abu ghraib was justified.

Quite frankly I'd like to see his British nationality being offered to the judge.

We need a judiciary with balls to sentence appropriately.

In reply to Semper saying 'anyone living in britain should embrace British Values'. I could not agree more as when i was brought up i was always told ' when in Rome, do as the Romans do '. I did draw the line at sh@gging my Mum and Sister though. :lol:

As far as i'm concerned you give up any human rights you may of had when you help terrorist organisations. His sister needs a brick to the head.

Muneef was told that the sentence was simply for entering Iraq illegally and violating passport laws.



This seems very harsh indeed.



An official from the Justice Ministry said: “This is a harsh message to would-be jihadis from abroad that if you are caught in terrorist activity you will get no leniency.”



And this is totally irrelevant, given that he was sentenced to 15 years for violating passport laws - where's the terrorist activity associated with this sentence? Come on Murdoch, must do better. If you're going to support America, you'll need better journalists working for you, ideally ones that can write a convincing story.

This unpleasant creature was sentenced in accordance with the law of Iraq; he chose to go there (for whatever reason), and must now accept responsibility for his actions and live with the consequences.

Are you suggesting that the UK should interfere with the law of another country? Isn't allowing the Iraqis to do things their way one of the reasons we are there?

Still it's always nice to see the press carrying some good news for a change.

I just knew that you'd be having a hard time with this one. I hope that your annoyance keeps you awake tonight.

I've given this matter a lot of thought and after much soul searching, I've come to the conclusion that I personally don't give a fcuk.

My brother’s fundamental human rights have been breached and the British Government have been spectators in the whole process. To my family, it seems that we have paid a heavy price for the US-British special relationship.”

I would like to quote Nelson Muntz from the Simpsons.

"HA HA!" :lol:

It seems he has paid the price for trechery and terrorism
