If you needed any more proof that Great Britain has sunk to new depths of dhimmitude you need to look no further than to Crown Court Judge Frank Chapman.
Judge Chapman recently presided over the two week trial of Hassan Tabbakh, a Syrian muslim asylum seeker, a physics graduate who also studied chemistry, and a fan of Al Qaeda, who was recently found guilty of a single count of preparing for acts of terrorism contrary to the 2006 Terrorism Act. Specifically Hassan "attempted to make bombs using nitrocellulose, fertiliser, white spirit and acetone, and had made handwritten notes stipulating the design of the devices". The bombs that Mr. Tabbakh was convicted of building were well on their way to being capable of causing major injuries, death and destruction.
Now would you believe that while passing sentence on this convicted terrorist -the judge felt the need to offer up an apology/explanation??? A terrorist who clearly wanted to murder British people? The same people who gave him a safe home and new life?
Well that is exactly what happened:
The judge wanted to be sure that Tabbakh didn't misunderstand the reasons behind his conviction and jail sentence thus "Judge Chapman stressed that Tabbakh was not being punished for his fundamentalist Muslim beliefs or his support for al Qaida or similar organisations. The judge told Tabbakh: "Provided you do not actively engage in terrorist activity, it's not a crime to hold those views."
Well I don't know about you but I feel relieved that the Judge Chapman told a fundamentalist muslim convicted terrorist that supporting Al Qaeda met with the judge's approval and support- we wouldn't want Tabbakh to think that the UK judicial system frowned upon a terrorist organisation now --would we???
The British people will also be happy to learn that Hassan Tabbakh was granted asylum in the UK and will be able to return to live amongst these same generous and hospitable people - whom he thanked by wanting to blast them to smithereens - when he is released from jail. Maybe then the police will also return the three thousand pounds ($6,000) that they found under Tabbakh's bed that he received as compensation (proceeds from an adjudicated lawsuit or complaint) from a local council that had provided him with "poor" accomodations.
You truly couldn't make this stuff up.

A Syrian immigrant who attempted to make bombs for al Qaida-style terror attacks after being granted asylum in the UK has been jailed for seven years.
Hassan Tabbakh was told by the Recorder of Birmingham, Judge Frank Chapman, that the devices he created could have been developed into viable bombs capable of causing destruction and death. Jailing Tabbakh, Judge Chapman said it was fortunate the 38-year-old's activities had been "nipped in the bud" before he had devised a working bomb.
Tabbakh, of Camelot Way, Small Heath, Birmingham, was convicted of a single count of preparing for acts of terrorism contrary to the 2006 Terrorism Act following a two-week trial at the city's Crown Court.
A jury was told that the physics graduate, who had also studied chemistry, attempted to make bombs using nitrocellulose, fertiliser, white spirit and acetone, and had made handwritten notes stipulating the design of the devices.
Passing sentence, Judge Chapman stressed that Tabbakh was not being punished for his fundamentalist Muslim beliefs or his support for al Qaida or similar organisations. The judge told Tabbakh: "Provided you do not actively engage in terrorist activity, it's not a crime to hold those views.
"It's true that the materials you in fact had were so inferior, so third rate, that they would not themselves have made a viable bomb. But the fault was with the quality of materials and not in the concept.
"If you had developed this concept into a working bomb, there would have been great potential for destruction, injury and death."
After Tabbakh was found guilty, it emerged that he was given indefinite leave to remain in the UK in 2005 after lodging an application for asylum.
It was also revealed that £3,000 in cash was found by police under Tabbakh's bed, which he had been given as compensation by a council which provided him with poor accommodation.
The former student, who claims to have been tortured in his homeland, arrived in Britain in either 1999 or 2000, initially living in Hull.
