Jihadi imam Abu Hamza’s son STRIPPED of British passport after waging  jihad in Syria

This is a good start. All Muslims who go to wage jihad should be stripped of their passports and not allowed to return to the Western countries where they had been living. They are enemy combatants.

“Abu Hamza’s son stripped of British passport after waging  jihad in Syria,” by Robert Mendick and Robert Verkaik, Telegraph, April 1, 2017:

The son of Britain’s most notorious hate preacher has been stripped of his UK passport after travelling to Syria to fight with jihadists.

The Home Office took the highly unusual step of withdrawing the passport of the youngest son of the “hook-handed” cleric Abu Hamza, leaving him effectively stateless and stranded in the civil war.

Sufiyan Mustafa, 22, whose father is in jail in the US after being convicted of a series of terrorism charges, has complained in an interview with an Arabic newspaper of his plight. He has pleaded for the option of coming back to his home in London.

Mustafa is fighting alongside rebel units after fleeing Britain in 2013 following the extradition of his father to America to stand trial. He denies fighting with Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant or with forces loyal to al-Qaeda, although sources say the decision to revoke his passport was “not taken lightly”. It is unclear for which rebel group Mustafa is fighting.

In his interview with al-Quds, the Arabic newspaper, Mustafa spoke of his irritation at being accused by the Government of being a terrorist. He also told of his “surprise” at his passport being revoked.

He said he would return to Britain when the regime of President Bashar al-Assad has fallen and the fighting has stopped.

He also questioned the Home Office decision, insisting he was fighting with a moderate group which was supported with British and American weapons.

He said: “Britain is the place where I was born and lived. I have never been a threat to national security in Britain and will not commit aggression on its population because our religion does not allow attacks on unarmed innocents.”

Mustafa admitted his father, a 59-year-old cleric jailed for life after a trial in New York in 2015, had made mistakes, but added by way of explanation: “Who hasn’t when they believe in a cause?” Mustafa said he had taken part in battles in Aleppo and on his Twitter feed he has written about the killing of regime forces….
