The 21st Century Phenomenon


A Muslim convert who goes by the name Ashraf Islam, walked into a police station in Hounslow, west London, and told cops he was going to kill Prince Harry, it was revealed on 06/01/2013 night.

Ashraf Islam, formerly known as Mark Townley, made his chilling threat a day after the Woolwich Beheading, on 05/22/2013. Ashraf Islam, 30, is now facing ten years in jail after admitting threatening to kill soldier Harry, 28, who is third in line to the throne.

Anti-terror cops were called in to investigate after Islam’s threats on Thursday, 05/23/2013, and security around the royal was stepped up. Two days later, last Saturday, Ashraf Islam appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court and pleaded guilty before being remanded in custody.

Scotland Yard allegedly later found a laptop belonging to Ashraf Islam showing internet searches for kidnapping, guns and vans. His internet history is also said to show he had been on terrorist and firearms websites. He is believed to be in London’s Wormwood Scrubs Prison.

Apache helicopter pilot Harry served in Afghanistan as an on-ground air controller with The Household Cavalry in 2008. He also served there with 662 Squadron Army Air Corps until January 2013.

In 2008, Ashraf Islam appeared in court in Liverpool , in 2008, under his birth name of Mark Townley after ­conning former soldiers out of hundreds of pounds. A judge gave him a suspended prison sentence and banned him from England and Wales for two years. He was also accused, in 2008, of a modelling scam that netted him £750,000.

 In around 2010, Ashraf Islam was said to have “ingratiated himself” with a Muslim group and travelled throughout the Middle East. When he returned he handed himself in to ­answer fraud and theft charges.

His name change to Ashraf Islam is believed to have come about during or shortly after a stint in Maghaberry prison in Lisburn in 2011.

A newspaper, report in 08/2012, said the ­“notorious local fraudster” from Bangor, County Down, had reinvented himself as a “part-time” Muslim working in the porn industry. Collared by reporters, he spoke openly about picking and choosing parts of Islam he liked.

He said: “I believe I should have multiple wives.But there are aspects of Islam that I don’t follow. Many Muslims wouldn’t agree with the fact I take part in adult films and photographs but it works for me.”

Ashraf Islam wrote a book last year, telling reporters: “I have a lot of raw energy, passion and rage and now I know it’s better to channel that in to my writing and poetry rather than looking for someone to beat up.”

Security services are said to have picked up “chatter” that the royal Apache pilot ace is being targeted by Al Qaeda sympathisers in Britain.
