Ashraf Islam is no different from Mujaahid Abu Hamza and Ismail ibn Abdullah, who murdered British soldier Lee Rigby on a London street.

“Convicted criminal who plotted to kill Prince Harry jailed for three years,” from The Guardian, February 10

A convicted criminal who plotted to kill Prince Harry has been jailed.

The judge at Isleworth Crown Court in London described Islam’s plot as “vague and unlikely to succeed”, but said he presented a risk to the public.

Islam, of no fixed address but who had been living in west London, was handed a three-year jail term.
Islam pleaded guilty to making a threat to kill Prince Harry, at Uxbridge Magistrates Court in May last year....
