LONDON - A Muslim Imam who once hackled the former British Foreign Secretary John Reid, was on Thursday found guilty of fundraising for terrorists and inciting terrorism overseas. Abu Izzadeen, 32, a former electrician was convicted at the end of a three-and-a-half month trial at Kingston Crown Court along with five other men who were also found guilty. Sulayman Keeler, 35, who was born Simon Keeler to a Roman Catholic family in Crawley, West Sussex, was convicted of the same two charges as Izzadeen. Abdul Saleem, 32, and Ibrahim Hassan, 25, were convicted of inciting terrorism but cleared of fundraising for terrorists. Shah Jilal Hussain and Abdul Muhid, both 25, were found guilty of fundraising for terrorists. Rajib Khan, 29, was cleared of the same charge. The jury failed to reach a verdict in respect of the charge of inciting terrorism overseas in his case. They also failed to reach a verdict in respect of Omar Zaheer, 28, also charged with the same offence. The jury did not return a verdict on a third offence of encouraging terrorism faced by Izzadeen, who was born in Hackney, east London and who changed his name from Trevor Brooks after converting to Islam. Izzadeen described the 2005 suicide bomb attacks in London as "Mujahideen activity" which would make people "wake up and smell the coffee". The charges against Izzadeen related to a speech made by him and the other defendants gathered at the Regent's Park mosque in central London to observe a holy day in the Muslim calendar. He, along with others, denounced an attack by US forces on the Iraqi city of Fallujah in November 2004, during Ramazan. The British court heard that their preaching quickly went much further than mere protest. Prosecuting Jonathan Laidlaw said: "What occurred was that these eight men delivered or contributed to a series of speeches and appeals for money, and in the case of five of the defendants, for volunteers to join in the fight against coalition troops. "The speeches became progressively more emotive and inflammatory and insulting in their tone." The guilty men were all members of a group called Al-Muhajiroun, which has since been banned by the govt. Run by Imam Omar Bakri Muhammad, who now lives in Lebanon, the group believed in the creation of a Muslim state and the imposition of Shariat.  The men will be sentenced Friday (today).
