Isis: Bradford man jailed for sharing extremist group’s Dabiq propaganda magazine on his Facebook page

A man who shared links to Isis’ propaganda magazine on Facebook has been jailed for 18 months.

Hassan Munir, from Bradford, was handed the sentence for sharing issue four of the extremist group’s Dabiq magazine to hundreds of Facebook friends last October.

The 27-year-old ignored repeated warnings from police officers and Facebook against posting extremist material – including about beheadings, the Old Bailey heard.

He also previously posted instructions on how to make explosives, as well as other pro-Isis documents.


Well. C-51  has similar provisions. I do not doubt I am on a list.

    They insist on bringing these filth into our countries and then use the resulting security threats as an excuse to increase their control over citizens’ free speech. Nice little scheme you got going there, government.
    This WILL blow up in their faces; I only hope get to see some of the payback before I pass into “that good night”,

  • Wally Keeler

    So I download Dabiq for my own interest, absorb its contents, decide to share with a friend who has a similar curiosity. I may or may not end up utilizing the zine for satirical purposes, or artistic purposes, anything except proselytize the content, yet I am under threat of c51.
    In 1973 my private mail was intercepted and withheld from me. It was mal pertaining to the Peoples Republic of Poetry, the Poetariet and Poetburo, as well as the Creative Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Inspiration, Ministry of Texternal Affairs, Minister With Poetfolio. The Peoples Republic of Poetry made alliances with the Western Front and The Poem Company in Vancouver, Grupo Texto Poetico, Valencia Spain, Ministry of Anti-Social Insecurity, London, and Bureau de la Poesie, Wardaw, among others.
    The mail was intercepted at the Alta Vista post office who transferred it the Dept of National Defence, who, in turn, passed it on to the Security Service of the RCMP. They drafted a letter signed by Solicitor General Warren Allmand who sent it to my MP, Allan Lawrence, who forwarded it to me. Mr Allmand wrote “I have been assured by the RCMP that it is not their practice to intercept the private mail of anyone.”
    It was a lie, of course. The incident exploded in the House of Commons. It eventually found its way into the Royal (MacDonald) Commission of Inquiry Into Certain Actions of the RCMP where I earned a full chapter, etc. etc.
    What the authorities did then was illegal, but no one did time or was charged. They had impunity then and they have impunity now, regardless of whether Bill C51 is passed or not.

      While your tale is scary, it does not scare me more than the plethora of self-proclaimed “poets” and their cringeworthy work does. Poetry is a very delicate art, and few have the required talent to undertake it. Unfortunately, many think they do. The “cultural cost” of the participation ribbon culture has been with us for several decades now. It’s just really obvious to even the dunderheaded nowadays.

      My experience of South America, OTOH, gives me reason to support Caadian intelligence’s interest in South American “poets”. Perhaps you should look into the historical role of alleged “poets” in various South American revolutions. You might find inspiration therein.

      • Wally Keeler

        I am completely uninterested. My inspiration was found with many poets that had fled commie terrorism. Being a Canuck blue-eyed straight W.A.S.P. I could easily slip in and out of the commie countries during the Cold War, smuggling poetry, art, literature, hard currency and gold in and out and in between those countries. It was exhilarating times.
        Btw, you should improve your prose to make it more coherent.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Really? Has your poetry left you ridiculously comfortable and living an idyllic lifestyle in the Hockley Valley in Ontario? My clear prose did precisely that for me – in publishing. As for your alleged past, why do you presume others’ pasts to be ambient wallpaper? I’m afraid you are showing every indication of being a stupid man, Wally. A Very Stupid Man. But perhaps you are having an “off” day?

          • Wally Keeler

            Your arrogant presumption that my past is alleged is a stupid assertion. I can prove all of the above assertions that I made. I will add that the prose in your reply was fully coherent. You don’t know me sufficiently to make the slanderous assertion that I am a stupid man. Remarks and actions can be stupid.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Wally, remarks and actions are people-powered. Ergo, it is fair to conclude that stupid remarks and actions are the result of stupid people who performed said actions/made said comments. So PEOPLE are the SOURCE OF STUPID, Wally.

            And you have given me ample evidence to conclude that you are, indeed, stupid. I would add that I suspect you suffer from OCD, are a clinical narcissist and have the attendant Histrionic Personality Disorder. That’s just what I suspect SO FAR, Wally my boy.

            Shall I continue? I could go into more detail. I’ve met your sort before. You are “textbook” Wally. Clearly, you haven’t figured out what kind of consulting I did for my whole career. Don’t try.

          • El Martyachi

            I recently found myself inwardly chuckling about similar exchanges you two have had in the past. Thanks eh..

          • Wally Keeler

            I do note that his postings on this thread have improved since I suggested he write more coherently.

          • Justin St.Denis

            I think you are mistaken there Marty. I haven’t engaged with this person previously. I plan on avoiding it in future. Histrionic Personality Disorder is something I choose not to deal with on the interwebs.

          • El Martyachi

            I must have mistaken you for someone else then.

          • Wally Keeler

            You are right – he has engaged me on other threads in this blog.

          • Wally Keeler

            You have engaged with me previously on this blog in other threads.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Since this one, yes. Chronology is kinda important sometimes, wally old boy!

          • Wally Keeler

            You are quite mistaken. Check this thread begun April 4. Get your chronology right, prosebag..

            ‘Is it militant atheists who define the new Canada?’
            Justin St.Denis Wally Keeler • 24 days ago
            “Thank you, yes I do now that you explained yourself clearly. It was you’re crowing about being “exceptional” that threw me off the scent. Narcissistic pronouncements have that effect on me. Poets I have known in my life have always been capable of clear prose writing. I hope you understand my confusion now.”

            Check the threads and you will see that Justin St.Denis has a trigger. He has a hate on for narcissists. He also has a fetish about poets claiming to be poets. I claimed to be an exception from the assertion that all militant atheists avoid criticizing Islam. I am an atheist, but I have been more offensive towards Islam than any other poet in Canada. Oh there’s another trigger to set the caring compassionate therapissed.

            The poets in my life include the best poets Canada has produced. But of course, Justin St.Denis seems to suffer from poets envy.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Just “wow”Wally! Does this shit matter that much to you? How empty your life must be, skippy!

            For the record, you are probably right about the timing. It’s really unimportant to me, quite frankly. And I do forget narcissists that I encounter from one time to next. it’s in my nature to not dwell on the negative, you see.

            Try to not obsess over me and have a nice day, Skippy.

            For the record I am absolutely right, whereas you were absolutely wrong.

            Justin Therapissed wrote: “It'(sic) really unimportant to me, quite frankly”

            Yes, of course, that’s why you keep coming back with your malicious drive-by diagosis, and act as a poseur claiming to know all about poetry and poets.

            Justin Therapissed wrote: “Does this shit matter that much to you?”

            Yes, of course, that is why you keep returning, to let everyone know that a great therapissed regards my “shit” as worthy of denigrating, diminishing and degrading it with the debris from his bloated bland gland.

            Justin Therapissed wrote: “Poetry is a very delicate art…”

            This tells me all I needed to know about poetasters of little or no talent for Engish beyond being a common prosebag. You couldn’t turn an original phrase if you had a steering wheel. Poetry is powerful, poetent, sinewy in meter, strong. “delicate art” tells me that you read too much from the Mallmark Mall of Lame crowd.

            Justin Therapissed wrote: “And I do forget narcissists that I encounter from one time to next. it’s in my nature to not dwell on the negative, you see.”

            Which exlains why you return again and again to issue your negative drive-by diagnosis to denigrate me.

            ROTFLMAO! What lame dime-a-dork unoriginal comeback, and puerile to boot.

            PRZT! — the sound of Justin’s intelligence entering the atmosphere.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Wally, give it a rest. You are rambling on and on and I am not reading it so I doubt anyone else is.

            Wally, it is unwise to let people live rent-free in your head. think about it and go back to listening to those many voices you apparently hear.

          • Wally Keeler

            Nothing seems to stop you from returning. A little bait and poof there you are again and again and again, the great poet critic. Anyway, I’m finally bored of your prosebag mediocrity on this thread. You are an individual of little wit and creativity and you regard that as being mentally healthy. LOL

          • Justin St.Denis

            Returning? Wally, I receive these in my e-mail!

            Histrionic Personality Disorder can be treated, Wally. Get help before I feel obliged to hack you and wipe your memory drive clean. All that lost poetic angst!!! Think about it, Skippers.

            😉

          • Wally Keeler

            I receive yours in my email also, but I go to Blazing Cat Fur to post. I take your threat seriously. I guess I must have hit your boring nerve deeply when you make malicious threats.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Not a threat, Skippy. That’s a promise.

          • Cool it, guys, please. No threats Justin.

          • Wally Keeler

            When criminal threats are made, then I am outa this thread. Intimidation works.

          • Justin let’s just cool off, you too Wally.

          • Wally Keeler

            either way it is a criminal threat and trespass onto someone else’s property. Stalked? Paranoid much?

          • Everyone please cool it.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Mamba, I wish to but I am apparently being stalked. And I did not threaten. As I clarified, I made a promise – which I have followed up on.

            Because I can.

            And I did not damage a thing! I never do.

            Some hard drives simply reflect the phobias of the driver. No exception here, except for the presence of oodles of rather bad, navel-gazing angst-y verse. I was in-and-out like a puff of smoke.

          • Wally Keeler

            Liar.

          • Wally Keeler

            Sorry but you did not follow up on your “promise”. You failed to wipe out my hard drive as you “promised”.

          • Wally let’s just cool off, you too Justin.

          • Justin St.Denis

            I have, BCF. But the stalking seems to continue. How long should I endure this in your estimation? I’m doing my very best to restrain myself from inflicting genuine psychological damage here. this person is fragile and fucked up beyond belief. Trust me. I have that thought front-and-centre in my Christian mind and am doing my best. Cheers. 😉 😉

          • Wally Keeler

            I understand your ad hominid attack, proudly using your professional skills to diminish and denigrate. Your character analysis of me, while incomplete, is right on. You make me feel so transparent. And you gave it away free to me. Nevertheless, I note that you are a closed shop concerning your attempt to degrade my “alleged” activities in East Europe during the Cold War. THAT is your stupid.

          • Justin St.Denis

            ROFLMAO

  • Frau Katze

    No doubt he’s Islamist filth, but a jail sentence? WTF?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Probably cheaper than tailing him for the next 5 years until they catch him setting a timer/lighting a fuse…

    • There is no free speech in Britain.

  • cmh

    well i hope c51 jails you also if you are sharing muslim terror on line.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I’ve not seen that here. If I did, I would never return. 😉

      • Wally Keeler

        Then you are very unobservant. Note Blazing Cat Fur posted the front page of the terrorist zine, also provided links to the terrorist zine. I appreciate his courage for truth. So, I guess that means you will feel compelled to never return to Blazing Cat Fur.

        • Justin St.Denis

          That is qualitatively different. Information sharing is not “promoting jihad of jihadi how-to information.” There is black; there is white; there are an infinite number of shades of grey. And then there is the individual reader’s/thinker’s ability to PERCEIVE these nuances, which informs as to who is genuinely bright. And who isn’t. If you follow my drift, snowflake.

          • Wally Keeler

            ” Information sharing is not “promoting jihad of jihadi how-to information.” Tell that to the C51 enforcers.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Paranoid much?

          • Wally Keeler

            Given that I experienced the Security Service intercepting and withholding my mail, bringing in friends for interrogation, informing my landlord and employer that they suspect I was a subversive and I lose my job and get evicted, wiretapped and finally to have my flat gutted with an arson fire. So yes, I have a primary experience from the security authorities of Canada to suspect C51 enforcers. No reason to feel paranoid from that, right? Sorry but your diagnosis is misplaced. I am aware of what security forces can do. It doesn’t make me paranoid, it makes me wise to their ways.

          • El Martyachi

            For better or worse this seems like a story that needs telling.

          • Wally Keeler

            It was told in The 1st Interim Report of the Commission on the Causes & Manifestations of Divergent Think Procedure Concerning the 1st 10 Years of the History of the Peoples Republic of Poetry. It was also told in “Nobody Said No
            The Real Story About How the Mounties Always Get Their Man
            by Jeff Sallot — a very good read. There were other books about it also.

          • El Martyachi

            Thanks it’s available in paperback on amazon.

          • El Martyachi

            Better yet this gives me an excuse too scour the used book stores… if there’s any left (haven’t done that in 5 years and have noticed at least one large one has shut down).

    • Wally Keeler

      Your pathetic hope that c51 jails me is typical of kneejerk ignorant totalitarian think. Fuck you.

      • Justin St.Denis

        How bracing are your debating skills, Skippy!

        • Wally and Justin we are on the same side, let’s try to be civil. OK

          We appreciate you both here.

          • Justin St.Denis

            BCF, civility is my middle name. But I don’t suffer fools gladly, this I admit. I am going to bed. Wally can choke his chicken in somebody else’s direction.

            As a therapist, I am certain wally perhaps has been some genuine family tragedy in his past, but his narcissism and histrionic personality disorder have seen him choking THAT chicken and calling it poetry.

            I’ve seen this so many times before.

            G’night.

            😉

          • Wally Keeler

            Justin is bereft of any creative wit and I have often found that to be the case with therapists I have encountered. How interesting that a therapist who is supposed to be helpful to other human beings, decides to trash narcissists (I am so what?) and people who suffer from histrionic personality disorder and endured the most violent tragedy. What a pubic display of professional malice!.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Wally, at least try to stop demonstrating the truth of what I said. Cut back on the histrionics, Skippy. See how much better it’ll work for you when you do. Best of luck.

          • Wally Keeler

            Being the narcissist that I am, I regard the truth of what of you said to be tainted with malice and regard my truth to be the better choice for me. See what a rotten attitude I have? I have a serious mental disorder, and I got this diagnosis by a professional therapist in the pubic domain for free. Oh boy, I gotta screen-print this thread. Anyway, it’s my birthday today, and one of my presents is yours. As I am inundated today with birthday wishes on line and off from family and friends, lots and lots of positive vibes coming my way and it’s not over yet. I’m going to a party this evening with a copy of this thread to make a poetry reading of a found poem in which a compassionate and caring therapist provides his accurate professional diagnosis in public with the purpose of denigrating, demeaning, another human being.

            One of the best lines in a poem of mine —

            My bones, my blood, my body
            all are sensitive, the world sensitive
            everything that touches me, I touch.

            And Justin is dead on in his diagnosis., for the exception of one portion, when he snobbishly condescended to devalue my poethood and poetry. Here is a video that proves the truth of Justin’s diagnosis of me.

            https://youtu.be/baqnsIyI3_U
            Goodbye. I’m off to enjoy the rest of my date-of-birth anniversary.

          • El Martyachi

            Happy Birthday Wally 🙂

          • Justin St.Denis

            There you go again, Wally! Step back and read the dramedy you post. It makes little sense but is way over the top in navel-gazing content. Stop it. Get help. Happy Birthday. All the best.

          • Wally Keeler

            YOUR birthday wish reeks of insincerity.
