7/7 Show Trial - Stooge tells of Government funded Iqra bookshopwho employed ex SAS Muhajiroun " muslim converts "
Yesterday Shabaz Fazal explained to the court trying Waheed Ali, 24, Mr Ali, Mohammed Shakil, 31, and Sadeer Saleem, 27 on charges of aiding the 7/7 bombers, that he was involved in running the Beeston area's Iqra bookshop.
This would of course be the Iqra Islamic bookshop which shared the same building as Leeds Community School, which obtained a Goverment grant of over £106,000 for 'staffing and construction costs.'
The 'al-Qaeda gym' in the basement of a nearby mosque used by the alleged Edgware Road bomber Khan, 30, was also equipped with money provided by Leeds City Council.
Leeds City Council also funded the nearby The Hamara youth centre, which received two huge £200,000 grants for building costs and an £189,000 EU building grant.
Both Iqra and the Leeds Community School were registered as charities but neither have never
The Iqra bookshop was also of course a home from home for ex (?) SAS/ SBA/ Royal Marines
special forces soldier Martin Abdullah McDaid who was an eary (if not founding member) of member of MI5/6/7/8/9/ sponsored and run Al Mahajaroun.
When The Sunday Times approached McDaid (in late 2005) asking about a man called Yacoub , McDaid said: "Whether he was at the Iqra bookstore or not is none of your business you should fear Allah. "
The man called Yacoub who the Sunday Times wanted to meet was of course Mohammed Yacoub who was also better known as a Scots born Roman catholic (Dundee) James McLintock AKA "The Tartan Taliban".
McLintock, who lived in Bradford in the 1990s, was arrested by Pakistani police near the
Afghan border in December 2001 and questioned by the CIA and Scotland Yard anti-terrorism
officers. He claimed he was working for a charity and was released a month later.... unlimke anyo else who the Pakistani police arrested after 9/11 who either ended up ;
2. In Bagram prison
3. Eventually in Guantanamo
4. Like James McLintock AKA "The Tartan Taliban" back in the UK.
Two years ago he was arrested in Manchester and questioned by police investigating possible
al-Qaeda links but released without charge. He has always denied having terrorist links or
knowledge of terrorist activity.
Martin Abdullah McDaid was also associated at the bookshop with Mohammad Tafazal,
and Naveed Fiaz - Mohammed Afzal worked as a volunteer at Iqra bookshop after 7/7 and a spectacular raid by the police on the bookshop arrested by police (They were given the keys but smashed the door in in front of TV cameras) was taken to Paddington Green police station in London, some 200 miles away. He was quizzed for 13 days then released without charge.
More information was contained in the TV fillum, " Cult of the Suicide Bomber" . Channel 4, 8pm September 11 2006.
Martin 'Abdullah' McDaid and James 'Mohammed Yacoub/Yaqub' McLintock don't only share conversio to Islam , a life in Beeston, involvement with the Iqra bookshop, but neither of them are mentioned in the Home Office report / timeline for 7/7. Which is not suprising because of course they had no involvement or connectuion with the event. Did they ?
Here is another fine tangle to unravel ...
18 Alexandra Grove flat was said to be the bombers laboratory and the kicking off point for their fatal journey on 7/7 when they kissed their "industrial size regrigerator "goodbye before
slipping off their rucsacs , scattering their ID's Mobile Phones about, and dlipped off their mortal coils.
Their kicking off point was the 18 Alexandra Grove flat owned by a housing association but apparently let to or in the charge of Shakir Mahmoud Al-Ani (AKA Adnan Shakri) which he allegedly rented / allowed to use an Egyptian chemist Magdi El-Nashar pursued at one time as the mystery Fifth Bomber . He skipped to Egypt jusy before 7/7 and hasn't been seen since and was "was later eliminated from police enquiries. "
Shakir Mahmoud Al-Ani (AKA Adnan Shakri) is said to be a 'respectable hospital consultant'
who has a business registered at 2A The Drive, in the swanky northern Leeds suburb of Adel,
which is called Samara Medical Services
Directors are/ were
Shakir Mahmoud Al-Ani (AKA Adnan Shakri)
Zahra Alani (Wife - daughter ?),
Hassan Al Katib (Chairman of Leeds Muslim Forum - Arshad Chawdhry is also said to be the chairman of the Leeds Muslim Forum. )
Ahmed Albazie ( fined £3,000 under Health and Safety regulations in October 2002.)
Daniel James Dwyer (a director of Resourcing the Community along with Rifhat Malik)
Philip Mark Croshaw - He had held over 2,400 directorships by the time the DTI handed down a
12-year disqualification in 1999 as a director of Oldham Vehicle Contracts,
which went into liquidation. He is mentioned in a Fairplay article regarding fraudulent online
job search sites and was rumoured 4 ears ago to be living in Cyprus. His court case in Manchester (which he failed to attend) is covered here . It appears his Sark background (former resident of the Isle of Sark (the Avenue Sark)) allowed him to peddle himself for companies registered offoshore for a "nominal" fee.
Croshaw has featured regularly in job offers as the president of Caledonian Offshore. In his letters to applicants, he claimed that salaries of $42,000-$46,000 were achievable. But the catch is that applicants had to pay $438 as a joining fee, with “£189 to be paid immediately as the retainer’s fee to start processing.
