MI5 ‘tried to recruit convicted terrorist by taking him to see Stoke City FC’

MI5 agents tried to recruit a convicted terrorist to inform against hate preacher Anjem Choudary by taking him to see Stoke City FC, a court heard.

Tahir Aziz, 38, heard about the proposed deal during a secret chat with his Islamist friend Mohibur Rahman, 32, who insisted on speaking face-to-face because he feared his phone was being tapped by the police.

Rahman revealed he had been taken to the VIP section of the Premier League club’s Britannia Stadium by two agents who tried to persuade him to act as an informant against hate preacher Anjem Choudary.

    The terrorists who blow themselves up without injuring or killing anyone else must have been taken to Leafs games.

    Dear MI5: There’s more to fight for than materialism. Allah has got immortality and eternal glory in his hand and he’s going to call your bluff every time. You have nothing of equal or greater value to offer with your current worldview. However there is one who who holds the keys of life and death. the one you have forgotten. find him and you will stand a chance.
