March 20, 2009, Exclusive: Feeding Frenzy of the Islamist Crocodiles (Part Two of Two) Adrian Morgan FAMILY SECURITY MATTERS.

Al-Muhajiroun officially lasted from February 1996 until October 2004, continuing as an entity under various other names.

The most recent incarnation of the group is "Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah," which like Al-Muhajiroun is headed by Anjem Choudary. Though its core membership never rose above 200 committed members and a few hundred peripheral members, Al-Muhajiroun and its front groups were able to network through Islamic forums to gain further support for their activities.

The group's spiritual leader and founder, Omar Bakri Mohammed, had close ties with hook-handed Abu Hamza who occupied the Finsbury Park Mosque and had his own band of activists called "The Supporters of Sharia." The close association between the two clerics allowed a "pooling" of their followers for sharing information, key activities and protests. Despite anti-Western comments by these clerics which provoked media outrage, neither the British police nor MI5 were particularly interested in tackling hate preachers and their followers. Only after the bombings of July 7, 2005 did the Labour government attempt to deal with hate-preaching clerics.

Bakri intended to expand the sphere of operations of Al-Muhajiroun beyond Britain. Private investigator and self-styled "cyber vigilante" Bill Warner, currently based in Sarasota, Florida, unearthed details about the operations of Al-Muhajiroun in the United States. Warner helped the BBC journalist Richard Watson to unravel the links of Mohammed Junaid Babar and other American Al-Muhajiroun members with a small mosque in Queens, New York.

Junaid Babar had been arrested in March 2004 in Queens as he went to a taxi-driving course. He was taken by the FBI to Room 538 of the Embassy Suites Hotel in Manhattan where he remained in negotiations for four days. Faced with a 70-year jail term, Babar agreed to give evidence against his associates. On June 2, 2004, Babar pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to provide material support, and providing that support, to terrorists. In April 2007, under heavy security, Babar gave evidence at London's Old Bailey against the Operation Crevice plotters.

In the borough of Queens, as Bill Warner discovered, Babar would attend a small mosque, the Masjid al-Fatima on 37th Avenue, Woodside. At some stage in the mid-1990s, this mosque had been infiltrated by radicals from Hizb ut-Tahrir. The mosque's imam, Aqeel Khan, spoke of the problems caused by these radicals, who also stole money from the mosque's funds.

This place of worship would also become the haunt of American Al-Muhajiroun members. It was at this mosque in 1999 that Junaid Babar met Sajil Shahid, who would become a founder of the Al-Muhajiroun office in Lahore. Bill Warner also found that between June 2nd and June 4, 2000, a convention was held at the Masjid al-Fatima, where Sajil Shahid gave some lectures. Another participant at the three-day convention was a person called "Brother Fahad."

Brother Fahad is Syed Hashmi. This individual was arrested on June 6, 2006 at London's Heathrow airport, as he tried to board a plane to Pakistan. Hashmi was suspected of helping jihadists in their activities in Afghanistan and Iraq. Hashmi officially belonged to the Islamic Thinkers Society (ITS), which is believed by many to be - like Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah – another front for Al-Muhajiroun.

When informed that I was writing about Al-Muhajiroun, Bill Warner told me: "Of course I have an opinion on our pal Anjem Choudary and Al Muhajiroun...New York City Cops take so seriously the threat from al-Muhajiroun that the NYPD keeps a Detective on full time in London working with Scotland Yard and MI5 to keep tabs on al-Muhajiroun activates and it is al-Muhajiroun no matter what other name they use. People who are recruited by al-Muhajiroun are taught by the organization that Israel, the Jews and the West are evil and that it is their Muslim duty to fight them. Al-Muhajiroun recruits heavily on the internet and YouTube, Anjem Choudary has 81 related YouTube videos currently online see here."

"Al-Muhajiroun recruits online at which is a reincarnation of al-Muhajiroun in all but name. It is headed by Bakri Mohammed, now living in Lebanon, and his deputy Anjem Choudary, its official spokesman. (Al-Muhajiroun still meets in Queens NY, members from Baltimore MD come into the city on weekends). My efforts are now spent shutting down jihad websites like al-Muhajiroun."

On March 15 last weekend, the Sunday Times reported that Anjem Choudary, former operational leader of Al-Muhajiroun and current leader of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah, has been urging his supporters to send money to mujahideen fighters. The evidence appeared on a tape recording which had been made in 2008, while Choudary addressed his supporters.

Are the online attacks by the author of the "Muslims Against Sharia" aka Khalim Massoud with an email address of who has Defamed and Intends to cause an interruption of Bill Warner's business, WBI Private Detective Agency, by posting libelous messages, linked to the al-Muhajiroun group, same tactics are being used.
