Osama Bin Laden’s Spokesman Set for Early Release from Jail

A man recently released from prison who was a former adviser to Osama bin Laden expressed his desire to provide British Muslim youngsters with “skills” and a “vision.” The man is a terrorist who was involved in the attacks on US embassies in Africa, which killed 224 people.

Adel Abdel Bary, 64, was incarcerated in the United States for almost 20 years due to his associations with the bombings of the Nairobi and Dar es Salaam embassies in 1998.

Abdel Bary has been characterized as Al-Qaeda’s propaganda officer in London. He’s made his first public interview since his prison release. Photos of the interview that surfaced online show Abdel Bary seated at a desk adjacent to a whiteboard inside a Birmingham juvenile facility.

Even if a High Court judge ruled in 2022 that Abdel Bary’s past involvement at the most senior levels of global terrorism was a powerful and enduring baseline indicator of risk, there are no constraints that would automatically prohibit him from teaching children.

The 64-year-old and his family reside in a government apartment worth over £1 million ($1.26 million) in northwest London, where he is the father of six.

Abdel Bary initially came to Britain from Egypt in 1991 through an asylum application. He was a lawyer before that. His ties to the killing of Egypt’s previous president, Anwar Sadat, as well as his participation in the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, led to his incarceration and torture.

Reportedly, Abdel Bary assisted in running Al-Qaeda’s “media information office” in the English capital after being given refugee status.

But he was apprehended after promoting Al-Qaeda’s assertions of responsibility to connections globally following the tragic attacks in August 1998. The United States requested Abdel Bary’s arrest, and he was subsequently detained at London’s Belmarsh jail.

His 13-year legal fight against extradition was finally successful in 2012 when he was sent to the US and given a reduced sentence of 25 years due to his time served in Belmarsh.

Because of his bad health, Abdel Bary was freed in late 2022 on humanitarian grounds. He then returned to the UK to “live quietly” with his British citizen wife, Ragaa.

However, Abdel Bary is making a triumphant comeback to the spotlight with this interview, which will be published on the Islam21c website. His goal is to “educate and inspire” Muslims in the UK.

Inspire them to do what?
