UPDATE: Now the stories naming Abu Izzadeen are being withdrawn; his lawyer claims he is still in prison. Watch The Geller Report for updates.
The UK has banned me from speaking because of my work opposing jihad terror and supporting Israel, but Prime Minister Theresa May allows these devout Islamic hate preachers to spew their venomous poison anywhere and everywhere.
You can avoid reality, Ms. May, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.
Izzadeen called for murder of cops and politicians and weighed in our free speech conference in Garland Texas.

London Terrorism Suspect Named As Hate Preacher Abu Izzadeen
by Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, March 22, 2017:
Press reports are circulating that the terrorist responsible for the attack on Westminster Bridge in London, has been named as Abu Izzadeen, born Trevor Brooks from Clapton in Hackney, an infamous UK-born hate-preacher amd Islamic extremist who had been convicted for raising funds for terrorism.

A 2013 DailyStar article, reports that the convicted terror fundraiser Abu Izzadeen branded a Muslim chaplain who served British soldiers a “traitor” for working for the UK Government, and added that the firebrand preacher has encouraged followers to “look out” for the cleric.
Izzadeen, who was jailed for four-and-a-half years in 2008 after being found guilty of raising funds for terrorism, made the comments in a video posted on YouTube.In one address Izzadeen, 35, slammed Asim Hafiz, the former imam of the British Armed Forces, for taking a government job while also railing against Muslims for adopting British customs and co-operating with the authorities.
Izzadeen – formerly an electrician named Trevor Brooks – compared Hafiz, 35, to Muslims who do not take Ramadan seriously. Later, he suggested that Hafiz renounced his religion by joining the Army. While miming firing a gun, he said: “The one he kill Muslims, he bombs masjid (mosque) and he kill wedding party…it’s OK.” He claimed Hafiz had sold his religion. “Who would sell jannah (paradise) for £30,000, except the one fool?”

Two Islamic extremists who admitted to a “serious and deliberate” breach of counter-terrorism restrictions by travelling abroad have been sentenced to two years in prison. Simon Keeler, 44, and his friend Trevor Brooks, 40, were extradited to the UK after they were arrested in Turkey on a train bound for Bucharest, Romania, in November last year. The pair had been required to notify police three days in advance of any overseas travel under Part 4 of the Counter Terrorism Act 2008, but failed to do so.

According to a separate 2016 report from The Mirror, Izzadeen was one of two Islamic extremists who admitted to a “serious and deliberate” breach of counter-terrorism restrictions by travelling abroad have been sentenced to two years in prison. Trevor Brooks, then 40, was extradited to the UK after he was arrested in Turkey on a train bound for Bucharest, Romania, in November last year.
The pair had been required to notify police three days in advance of any overseas travel under Part 4 of the Counter Terrorism Act 2008, but failed to do so.
Following appeals, the defendants’ sentences were set at three and a half years, but the travel restrictions applied for a decade. Keeler has also been convicted previously of possessing false identification documents. Mr Justice Saunders took into account their early guilty pleas and willingness to be extradited, and accepted their stated reasons for travel.
But in sentencing, he called the breach “serious and deliberate” and stressed the importance of counter-terrorism restrictions. Mr Justice Saunders said: “They (restrictions) are particularly important at this time when there has been recent terrorism activity in several European countries and the fear of further terrorist attacks is intense.”
Both men were sentenced to two years in prison. The maximum term for the offence is five years.
Leader of the US feminist movement, Linda Sarsour, making the same ISIS gesture:
Here are some of his tweets (thanks to Counterextremism.com):
Abu Izzadeen is an Islamist propagandist and radical cleric who has been imprisoned in the United Kingdom for inciting and fundraising for terrorism* and for association with radical Islamist groups Al Ghurabaa and al-Muhajiroun.* Izzadeen also uses Twitter to praise ISIS* and well-known jihadists such as Abu Rumaysah* and Omar Bakri Muhammad.* Other Twitter accounts use variations of the Abu Izzadeen name, but it is unclear whether they are maintained by the same person.
Born Trevor Brooks*, Izzadeen is a Muslim convert of Jamaican descent. Izzadeen’s parents came to the United Kingdom in the 1960s and he converted to Islam at age 17.* Izzadeen reportedly radicalized in the 1990s after meeting Bakri Muhammad at the Finsbury Park Mosque.* He then became a bodyguard for Bakri Mohammad.* Izzadeen became a primary spokesman for Al Ghurabaa, which was founded by some of Bakri Muhammad’s followers.* Following the July 7, 2005, terrorist bombings in London, Izzadeen called the bombings “mujahedeen activity” to “make people wake up and smell the coffee.”*
In November 2004, Izzadeen led a group of radicals in storming the Regents Park Mosque in London. Izzadeen then called for Muslims to fight British and U.S. troops in Iraq and give money to terrorist causes.* Izzadeen also says anybody who helps the Americans in Iraq should be killed. British prosecutors later convicted Izzadeen for encouraging terrorism during his speeches at the mosque.* He was released with restriction in 2009,* but he has been in and out of jail since for violating the terms of his release.*

1975 or 1976

On Twitter, Izzadeen has posted numerous anti-Western tweets. His May 11, 2015, tweet chastised the “Islam of the west,” which he perceives to have been “usurped by Kufr [nonbelieving] ideals and practices.”*
Using the #Texasattack hashtag, Izzadeen issued a series of condemnations of the United States following the May 2015 Islamist attack on a Draw Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas. He called the contest “clear proof” that the United States had launched a “crusade” against Islam,* and condemned insults to the prophet under the guise of free speech.*
Izzadeen briefly operated a Facebook account in October 2015.* Several videos of Izzadeen’s speeches and interactions with British police are available on his YouTube channel.*
The British Home Office denied Izzadeen’s request for a passport in April 2015 on the grounds that he would likely go to Syria to fight alongside ISIS.* Izzadeen was arrested in Hungary on November 14, 2015, in violation of the travel ban.* When authorities asked for identification, Izzadeen presented a Quran. Authorities detained Izzadeen when he could not prove he was in Hungary legally. He also requested mineral water while in custody because tap water made him ill, he said. A Hungarian court decided to deport Izzadeen to Britain.*
