Woman Sentenced to Year in Prison for Having al-Qaeda Magazine

Curious readers beware: in the British police state, merely possessing a copy of the supposed al-Qaeda magazine Inspire will get you a twelve month stint in the hoosegow.

Last Thursday, the sister of two men convicted of planning a Christmas 2010 terror plot – including blowing up a toilet at the London Stock Exchange – was jailed after British authorities found a digital copy of the magazine on the memory card of her cell phone.

Judge Adrian Fulford said he accepted Ruksana Begum’s explanation that she downloaded the magazine to better understand her brothers’ case. He said, however, he had no choice but to send her to prison, according to the Associated Press.

Begum “accessed this material, which is easily accessible, before coming to London to understand the background and ideology which led to her brothers’ incarceration,” said her lawyer, Hossein Zahir.

Begum’s conviction and incarceration set a dangerous precedent – people can now be sent to prison for merely having literature on their computers and cell phones.
