Who can forget how the media lapped up the Muslim who held a sign “I’m Muslim … do you trust me for a hug?” in Paris the day after the jihad massacre in France. He became a global sensation. Something tells me this Muslim won’t make as big a splash.

This Muslim was converted in prison, another critical hotbed of jihadism that is desperately in need of surveillance and reform.

Convert who protested outside Parliament over Syrian airstrikes with poster saying ‘I am a Muslim… do you trust me enough for a hug?’ now faces jail for threatening to bomb MP’s house

By Richard Spillett and Keiligh Baker for MailOnline

A Muslim convert who protested outside Parliament with a sign saying ‘I am Muslim, do you trust me enough for a hug?’ is facing jail for threatening to bomb an MP’s house.

Craig Wallace used the sign as Stop The War protesters came to Westminster for the vote on military action in Syria last week.

It stated: ‘I am Muslim, I am labelled a terrorist, I trust you, do you trust me enough for a hug?’

But the 23-year-old, of Willesden Green, north London, is now facing a possible prison sentence after he threatened Tory MP Charlotte Leslie online following the vote.

Wallace, who calls himself Muhammad Mujahid Islam online, wrote on Facebook: ‘I’m going to smash her windows then drop a bomb on her house while she’s tucked up in bed. You dirty f****** pig-s******* s***.’

Shortly before he sent the messages he also posed for a series of pictures with strangers carrying a placard that read: ‘I am Muslim, I am labelled a terrorist, I trust you, do you trust me enough for a hug?’

On December 3, the day after MPs voted to authorise the air strikes, he wrote: ‘I’m going to find her and show her what it’s like to murder innocents. You dirty pig-f****** w****.’

He also described shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn as a ‘war criminal’ and a ‘terrorist’ the day after the Commons vote to bomb Syria.

His defence lawyer Abu Sayeed said Wallace had posted the messages after he had been out protesting against the Syrian bombing vote for ‘two or three days and had very little sleep and had not taken his medication.’

Wallace has a string of convictions for violent offences including possession of a knife.

He converted to Islam while in prison serving a sentence of almost five years for attempted robbery.

Three weeks after he was released he posted the messages on a thread of comments on the UK Truth Movement Facebook page.

Wallace today pleaded guilty to sending threatening communications at Hendon Magistrates’ Court.

Wearing a white traditional Islamic dress and a grey jumper slung over his shoulders, he spoke only to confirm his name and address before entering a guilty plea.

He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on December 30.

The court heard the messages came to light after Ms Leslie’s father saw the comments online and reported them to police.

Wallace claimed he was ‘venting his anger’ and had not had any sleep because he had been ‘protesting for two or three days’.

District Judge Mark Jabbitt said: ‘What’s absolutely clear is that your language and expressions about this MP Ms Leslie, who you have no knowledge of, went beyond any sort of legitimate comment or protest on an extremely serious issue.

‘What you did was personalised it and used really the most vile, insulting and threatening language imaginable on a forum.’

He ordered a full risk assessment report on Wallace and expressed concern that he was not being formally supervised after his release from prison.

Abu Sayeed, defending, said Wallace has mental health issues and had not been taking his anti-psychotic medication.

‘He has co-operated fully with the police and expressed remorse and regret,’ he added. ‘He made the comments to vent his anger.

‘Mr Wallace is a Muslim convert, he converted while serving his last sentence. He feels very passionately about the bombing in Syria and the vote recently taken in Parliament.

‘He had been out with other protesters and was protesting for two or three days and not had much sleep and hadn’t taken his medication.’

Wallace has never met Ms Leslie and thought the page was a ‘closed group’, Mr Sayeed said.

‘In the current climate people would have been fearful of his comments,’ he added.

  • USMCInfidel

    Big House Bubba is about to hug him real good! LOL

    • Dr. Doomsday

      I think the expression is, “Bubba don’t play ‘wife’…”

  • Lack of sleep was his excuse – not lack of hugs.

  • Benji0804

    No. I would rather kick you in the balls repeatedly.

  • audieho

    Behead the infidels who say Islam is not a peaceful religion!

    • Susan

      Islam, the biggest oxymoron of all time.

    • Carlos Kingston

      Like Bill Maher says: Islam is a religion of peace. There’s a piece of you here, there’s a piece of you over there…

  • Abandon Islam

    This guy has a serious case of islam.

  • Jonah

    Labeled a terrorist and the irony he was using terror death threats. Do you think any of those naive ones who hugged him will wake up from their delusions?

    • JemLaw

      He probably thoroughly enjoyed the younger female ‘hugs’.

      • cleantruth

        It’s either beg for hugs that or rape for Muslims – they have no other way to be close to women or see what they look like..

    • cleantruth

      They should go to the hospital adn get checked out – he may have been conducting germ warfare.

      • palintologist

        If that nasty-looking beard is any indication. Ugh!

  • Susan

    Islam is a disease of the mind. Please do not call this nazi cult a religion. The brilliance of islam is they are hiding behind religion. If the nazi party had done this imagine the difference in how the nazis would have been viewed.

    • Dave Brandow

      When you add religion and law it is a theocracy and should not be protected under any freedom of religion laws.

  • Paul

    This has nothing to do with Islam. This complete moron and nutter was a violent criminal BEFORE he converted to Islam. He should go to gaol and get what’s coming to him. It’s NOT to do with his choice of religion, nor the religion itself.

    “Wallace has a string of convictions for violent offences including possession of a knife. He converted to Islam while in prison serving a sentence of almost five years for attempted robbery. Three weeks after he was released he posted the messages on a thread of comments on the UK Truth Movement Facebook page.”

    It’s obvious from this alone he wasn’t a good egg before conversion. Let’s keep the sensationalism away shall we?

    • Susan

      Insanity has everything to do with islam.

    • joker

      Well he could have converted to Buddism, Born again Christian, Catholism, Scientology and the rest but he chose the criminal option: Islam.

    • meh

      You pathetic, deluded fool. The fact that he was a moron, a nutter, and a violent criminal BEFORE he converted to islam is the REASON he was drawn to islam. Duh.

      It has EVERYTHING to do with islam!

    • Mohamed was a self serving murdering terrorist. He is considered to be the best example for Moslems to emulate. Ergo his followers turn into raving murderous criminals who feel justified in attacking and murdering the infidels just as their unholy book prescribes. Source of information, Quran, Tafsirs, Sahih Hadith, earliest biographies of the fake prophet Mohamed. Get your head out of the sand and actually do some research and fact finding before posting such rubbish. Islam is EXACTLY what is driving this nut.

    • Needtoknowtruth

      Agreed he could have not converted at all to anything, yet he choose Islam, and became more violent. How is his true feelings and actions ‘sensationalism’,. What a ridiculous statement.

  • keith

    … 1.5 billion Muslims have also not taken their meds..!!

  • Thaaff

    Isn’t it interesting how whenever people convert to Islam, they become hateful, psychotic and paranoid! Ergo Islam is a spiritual condition of entering into the realm of darkness; or, crossing over to the dark side! No question!

    • cleantruth

      “My PRECIOUS”

    • Kook of the East

      I suspect that 99.9% of converts to islam are already mental defectives to begin with.

      • Don Grantham

        He converted while in jail, like so many others. Criminals are so darn peaceful, I want to hug them all.
        By hug, I mean something else… hey, we can taqiyya too!

    • Cara C

      Islam is a psychopath magnet. Imagine – murdering, terrorizing, raping – and instead of being demonized as you would be in any normal society, you’re exalted, as you’re doing it “for the glory of Allah.”

      • Thaaff

        I totally agree with you, Cara! In fact, I believe we’re both correct – we each offerred a different perspective on this issue. God bless!

        • Cara C

          I agree with you, too. I think it works both ways.

  • joker

    He has mental health issues. Hmmmm, he must be a muslim then. Hopefully he will get a big hug while in detention.

    • nysticks

      …by Bubba!!

  • Drew Matthews

    (Drew the Infidel) — Have you hugged your Glock today?

  • cleantruth

    Apparently he was a terrorist after all.
    Islam is a death cult pretending it is a relgion.

  • cleantruth

    Maybe he was a pickpocket – but actually he was exemplary of the Muslim Lie – present a false front and destroy the infidel at leisure.

    It shows that the “Muslim being offended at criticism” is actually the Muslim who is engaged in warfare and hate.

  • Michael Barnett Radovsky

    Please hug me because I just want to know if you can feel the suicide belt or the knife I’ve got concealed.

  • vercingetorix

    What a deranged islamic loser! I pity him ……………

  • DAVIDJOHN

    Do I trust you to give you a hug? NO WAY !! Avoid you like the plague more like.

  • Jnana Samaaj

    Sick and tired of this “do you trust me?” sh*t!
    How about a person standing in the streets with a placard saying “I am not a terrorist. I do not hate Muslims as people. But can I critique the koran and will you hug me without wanting to kill me?”

    • dad1927

      no. You cannot question islam

  • JP cline

    Taqiyya can be spoken , Written , Acted out and Practiced in a Western non Muslim way to fool people , I believe some Muslims about as much as I can throw a bull by it’s tail ..It’s always the Muslim who always goes the extra mile to claim they and their religion are Peaceful who are exactly the ones I suspect the most of Terror potential. It’s their upfront denial of Islamic terror and their claim to being discriminated against that betrays them every time ..the Muslims who go that route have the most reason to Lie because they want to stay covered up until the moment is upon them to join in Jihad against YOU and other innocent people..and they always tend to Smile and Joke a lot and act like nothing is wrong with them ..Believe me ..Everything is Wrong with them !

  • Mike

    Of course, they aren’t all terrorists.

    • cleantruth

      Yeah some are unarmed right now.

  • Gives a different meaning to the word “hug,” doesn’t it?

    • cleantruth

      If a bear hugs you, you get your back broken – then they literally bite your head off.
      so it’s this kind of hug.

  • Try to make an example out of this dangerous crazy person!

    The doctrine of islam is simple and straightforward about the relations with non-islamic people:
    a) convert them and submit them to God
    OR
    b) fight and kill them

    This doctrine has two cornerstones:
    a) Jihad, that is the fight by any means (from the pregnant womb to the beheading) for imposing the Law o God until there is no other religion than islam, submission to God.
    b) Taqiyya, the dissimulation of islamic faith by any means whenever muslims are not strong enough to overcome the infidels.

    “And fight with them until there is no more persecution, and all religions are for Allah. But if they desist, then surely Allah is Seer of what they do.”
    (Quran 8:39)

    “Let not the believers take the disbelievers for friends rather than believers. And whoever does this has no connection with Allah — except that you guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully. And Allah cautions you against His retribution. And to Allah is the eventual coming.”
    (Quran 3:28)

    […]
    Al-Tabari’s (d. 923) famous tafsir (exegesis of the Koran) is a standard and authoritative reference work in the entire Muslim world. Regarding 3:28, he writes: “If you [Muslims] are under their [infidels’] authority, fearing for yourselves, behave loyally to them, with your tongue, while harboring inner animosity for them. … Allah has forbidden believers from being friendly or on intimate terms with the infidels in place of believers — except when infidels are above them [in authority]. In such a scenario, let them act friendly towards them.”

    Regarding 3:28, Ibn Kathir (d. 1373, second in authority only to Tabari) writes, “Whoever at any time or place fears their [infidels’] evil may protect himself through outward show.” As proof of this, he quotes Muhammad’s close companion, Abu Darda, who said, “Let us smile to the face of some people [non-Muslims] while our hearts curse them”; another companion, al-Hassan, said, “Doing taqiyya is acceptable till the Day of Judgment [i.e., in perpetuity].”
    […]
    The bottom line is, any Muslim who closely observes Sharia law — and that is, incidentally, the definition of a Muslim, “one who submits to (the laws of) Allah” — laws that, among other bellicosities, clearly and unambiguously split the world into two perpetually warring halves — such a Muslim will always have a “divinely sanctioned” right to deceive, until “all chaos ceases, and all religion belongs to Allah” (Koran 8:39). All Muslim overtures for peace, dialogue, or even temporary truces must be seen in this light.

    http://www.meforum.org/2066/war-and-peace-and-deceit-in-islam

    I used Quran’s translations made by faithful muslims. If they cannot understand and define themselves, I define them for what is the relation they have with me and my perceived threat: “A muslim is one that follows the law of God as it is stated in their terms expressed in our language”. Assumed this, I understand that they are incompatible with me. It is their duty to distinguish from my definition, if they want. And they must convince me, not themselves.

    A muslim man can marry a non-muslim woman. But a muslim woman cannot marry a non-muslim man. Together with polygamy (up to 4 wives per muslim man, plus sexual slaves, but only 1 husband and no sexual slaves per muslim woman); the muslim-baby-carrying-machine role for women in islam; the paternal custody of offspring; the Quranic indoctrination of young brains in islamic broad paternal side familes; — all things embedded in the islamic family law ruled by Quran — the islamic doctrine guarantees at least 2 things:
    1) a high fertility rate for muslims and consequent new additional meat for islamic doctrine;
    2) an odd number of males in perpetual aggressive search for new non-islamic females outside islamic communities to bring into islam and use them for islam reproduction and perpetuation.

    This is a fundamental part of the “jihad-of-the-womb” strategy for islamising the world.

    • cleantruth

      (c) Hug them to get their defenses down – then kill them.

  • Don Grantham

    If this admitted psych patient isn’t locked away permanently, then they deserve every bit of grief they get. In Canada, the deranged killer who cut the head off a young man on a Greyhound bus is close to being released, and is out on day passes. The media keeps this under wraps, because the backlash will be severe.
    A liberal society is a suicidal society.

    Amazing how many prisoners convert to Islam and continue along as criminals, unlike those who convert to Christianity or Judaism.

    I’ll hug ya Craig…real firm around your neck. We call it the “sleeper” in America.

  • Covadonga

    “Court heard he has mental health issues but hadn’t been taking medication.”

    That’s one of the big problems with Muslims: psychotropic medication always seems to be ‘haraam’ for them. They are always taking themselves off of it, and then making trouble for decent people.

    But then, of course, I don’t know any other religion in which so many congregants seem to need it. That is another big problem with Muslims.

  • Syd Riley

    No suprise: if you scratch a Muslim, you’ll find a terrorist underneath.

  • Paula Coyle

    What does this prove anyway? Judas kissed Jesus. I don’t even hug people at my church with any frequency.

    “Wallace claimed he was ‘venting his anger’ and had not had any sleep because he had been ‘protesting for two or three days’.
    Aww poor baby. Maybe should lay off the protesting and get some nigh-nigh.

    “Abu Sayeed, defending, said Wallace has mental health issues and had not been taking his anti-psychotic medication. ”

    Oh yes they tried this with the Muslim Somali guy just arrested for sexual assault in NORTH DAKOTA too. This is gonna be the new claim. They’re all psychotic. Tell me how that makes it better?

    • Mahou Shoujo

      It is a clear indication that practicing islam is now recognized legally as a mental issue. As it causes the affected to become criminally insane, those having “islam” must be confined to the psychiatric wards of prisons for violent criminals.

      • thisguy

        Haha soooo true, no intelligent person would become a muslim…
        guess thats why japan has labeled it a violent religion, fine those that preach or pray in public, try to conver others…thats why japan has no infestation or never apologize to muslims, because its their country and they can do what they want lol

        • Mahou Shoujo

          There is a reason some cultures want to protect there history from islamic conquest. islam is destructive, violent, parasitic and all the things civilization tries to avoid when possible.

          • Isabelle Baptiste

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Thanks, I like you too.

  • bargogx1

    I hope all the suckers who bought into his hug stunt are feeling like the gullible fools they are now.

  • Ed VanHalen

    Being yoked to the religion of death doesn’t warrant trust.

  • Public_Citizen

    Short answer: No
    Slightly longer answer: Hell NO.
    You self identify as a Muslim and you dress in a fashion that is distinctive to Muslims.
    I’ve researched your so called “religion” enough to have concluded that it calls for exactly what is being perpetrated on the civilized world by barbarian Blood Cultists who also call themselves Muslim. By your actions [or lack thereof] I can only conclude that you are either a hypocrite, in the fully Judaeo-Christian sense of the word or a closet terrorist sympathiser.
    Are you ready to publicly denounce the Blood Cultists?
    Are you ready to remove the incitements to terrorism and bloodshed from your “holy book”?
    Until then the answer to your question must remain no as you are aiding and abetting the terrorists by your continued failure to denounce them and subject your “religion” to the same sort of Reformation that Christianity has gone through.
    Until you take these actions to demonstrate that you are accepting the Customs, Laws, and Culture, as well as the benefits of the USA, I can not believe that your asking for a hug is not the preparatory act to plunging a knife in my back.

  • ConstablePlod

    Prisons and mosques are the universities where impressionable, under-educated young men turn from petty thugs and thieves into terrorist sympathisers. Many of them go on to become full-blown terrorists.
    We need to monitor long-term prisoner radicals, the self-appointed imams, both in prisons and in the communities.
    We can’t do this without help from the Muslims among us.
    We have heard many times how the Muslims among us are the most affected by terrorism, now is their chance to help identify these so-called holy men who are preaching death and destruction.
