IMAM who “radicalized” Paris jihad attackers made income from YouTube


This is, of course, particularly rich seeing as that my colleagues and I have been denied monetization of our YouTube videos. It’s why we are suing the US government. Section 230 provides immunity from lawsuits to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, thereby permitting these social media giants to engage in government-sanctioned censorship and discriminatory business practices free from legal challenge.

We mean to change that.

An arrested imam said to have radicalised one of the Paris terror attackers earned thousands of pounds from films of himself airing his views in a children’s playground and splashing about in a swimming pool.

Tarik Chadlioui, 43, is currently facing extradition to Spain on terror charges after he was detained by anti-terror police at his home in Birmingham.

He is accused of being the spiritual leader of a jihadist network, who allegedly inspired Omar Mostefai, a terrorist who blew himself up during the Bataclan theatre siege that claimed 89 lives in Paris in 2015.

It emerged today that the scores of videos of Chadlioui put online include one of him expounding his views in a children’s playpark not far from his home in Sparkbrook, Birmingham.

The alleged hate preache alsor posted photos online of himself during a barbecue

Other photos and videos he posted online show him lounging in a rubber ring in a swimming pool and cooking kebabs at a barbecue.

The video in the park is understood to show Chadlioui discussing the correct way to pray, but he adds: ‘Pray for your brothers in jails or in custody so that they will be released.’

He also says: ‘Do not forget to pay for your subscription for lessons and religious speeches.’

Chadlioui has around 16,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel and is thought to have made thousands of pounds from views.

Other videos appear to have been filmed during Chadlioui’s trips abroad and inside his home.

The Moroccan father-of-eight came to Britain around the time of the Paris attacks, using his Belgian passport to enter the UK. He is now fighting extradition claiming he has a right to a family life in Britain.

Chadlioui – who is said to have previously urged his followers to wage holy war against ‘infidels’ – posted one video online as recently as last week.

Chadlioui was arrested at his £800-a-month rented home in Birmingham he shares with his wife, who recently gave birth to their eighth child.
