Prince George jihadi wannabe is jailed for life
BY ADELA WHITTINGHAM firstname.lastname@example.org AN Islamic State fanatic who encouraged a terror attack on Prince George at his school has been jailed for a minimum of 25 years.
Husnain Rashid, 32, used a social media chat group to call on supporters to target the four-year-old.
Rashid posted a photo of St Thomas’ Battersea, south west London, superimposed with jihadist fighters.
Judge Andrew Lees said at Woolwich Crown Court: “The message was clear – Prince George and other members of the Royal family should be viewed as potential targets.”
Loner Rashid also urged his followers to inject poison into supermarket ice creams and carry out “lone wolf ”-style attacks in the UK and abroad.
He ran an internet channel that gave an “E-tool kit” for “lone wolves” to carry out attacks across the western world.
The former teacher at a Lancashire mosque admitted four terrorism charges.
Judge Lees rejected the defence’s plea to not find Rashid dangerous because he was a “pathetic individual”.
He was jailed for life and must serve 25 years before any parole.
