A terrorist suspect arrested after planning to join Islamic State wanted to carry out a gun attack on Jewish Tottenham Hotspur fans, a court heard.
Aweys Faqey, 37, is said to have discussed plans to get hold of automatic weapons and kill Jews in Stamford Hill, north London.
Stamford Hill is dominated by Jews of the Hasidic persuasion. I’ve been going to Spurs for nigh on 59 years, and I’ve never seen anyone at White Hart Lane wearing the distinctive garb of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth of the 18th century. Closet Spurs fans some of them may be, but you’d never know it.
Tacky Faqey is clearly a salt beef sandwich short of a picnic.
