Stop worshiping this false god,

democracy, and come back

to worshiping Allah.

Radical Islam is spreading.

- Shariah for UK!

Shariah for UK!

The government

is cracking down.

Together we will defeat you.

They've made

supporting ISIS a crime.

- Takbir!

Allah hu Akbar!

Get back! Get back!

As control tightens

I spent two years with

one of the most extreme groups

in Britain.

He said, "Is it okay

to behead someone?"

This is a front to recruiting

people for ISIS.


the YouTube sensation...


if people watch my videos

and get radicalized

then I'm not responsible

for that.

You're lying! You're lying!

...The extreme provocateur...

This black flag you see here,

one day is gonna be

on 10 Downing Street!

...and most shockingly,

a hate preacher...

British government, go to hell!

...who had become one

of the world's most wanted men.

The new Jihadi John

may well be this father of four

from East London.

Can you just say your name?

- Yeah, my name's Abu Rumaysah.

It's January, 2014,

and I'm spending the day

in Walthamstow,

Northeast London,

with one of Britain's

most vocal hate preachers,

thirty-year-old Abu Rumaysah.

- Did you grow up round here?

- No, I grew up

in North London, actually.

I grew up in Palmers Green.

My background is,

I actually grew up

as a non-Muslim,

from like the Hindu background,

and I became Muslim

when I was about 19

and I just moved here

when I got married.

Now a father of four,

he runs his own business

renting out bouncy castles

for children's parties.

Does your family ever worry

for your safety

or their safety?

Yeah, of course. I mean,

I think it's natural

that there is this kind of

tension and caution as well.

You see what far right groups

are capable of

so there is this kind of...

you know, worry and concern.

But that's part

of the struggle,

that's part of the package.

We believe, you know,

if you follow

the paths of the prophets,

we're gonna inevitably face

these consequences.

It's a bit of a mess,

but I'll show you.

These are the black flags

of Islam.

This one is actually the flag

of the Islamic State,


One day when the shariah comes,

you will see

this black flag everywhere.

One famous scholar of Islam,

Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed,

he said that the black flag

of Islam will one day fly high

over 10 Downing Street

and that was about

10, 15 years ago.

And, you know, that seemed

ludicrous back then,

but if you look at the way

society is moving on now

you can see that it's a very,

very real possibility

with the way Muslims

are coming forward

in this country.

Abu Rumaysah

has been a radical Muslim

for ten years.

I contacted him via a website

for a group advocating

strict shariah law in the UK.

Yeah, so basically translation

of this Arabic is,

"There is no one worthy

of worship to follow

or obey in truth, except Allah"

and that "Mohammed

is the final messenger."

And so we don't believe

in sovereignty for the Queen,

we don't believe that authority

should be in the hands

of the non-Muslims.

We want to see

this flag in every single

country in the world.

The Muslims are gathered

outside Paddington Green

Police Station!

We will never give up

calling for Islam,

whether you arrest us,

whether you imprison us...

Abu Rumaysah is the PR man

for a group of radical Muslims

who frequently organize

provocative protests

against the British government.

Theresa May,

you are a tyrant!

David Cameron,

you are a tyrant!

The public in this country,

they are living in ignorance.

Their country
