A WHITE Muslim convert who protested outside Parliament with a sign emblazoned with “I am a Muslim, do you trust me enough for a hug?” is facing jail after threatening to bomb a Tory MPs house.
Craig Wallace, also known as Muhammad Mujahid Islam, used a sign as Stop the War protestors came to Westminster for the vote on British airstrikes in war-ravaged Syria.
It read: “I am Muslim, I am labelled a terrorist, I trust you, do you trust me enough for a hug?”
But Wallace, 23, could be now facing up to six months in jail after he trolled MP Charlotte Leslie on Facebook saying he would “drop a bomb on her house”.
He threatened to find Ms Leslie and “show her what it’s like to murder innocents, you dirty pig f*****g whore.”
The 23-year-old from Willesden Green in north London, who converted to Islam while inside serving more than four years for attempted robbery, posted the threatening messages to the MP for Bristol North West just three weeks after being released.
He wrote on a existing thread on The UK Truth Movement Facebook page: “I’m going to smash her windows and drop a bomb on her house when she is tucked up in bed, you dirty f*****g pig shagging s***.
“By the way love you’re f*****g hideous.”
In a second message he went on: “I’m going into find her and show her what it’s like to murder innocents, you dirty pig f*****g whore.”
Yesterday he pleaded guilty to sending threatening communications at Hendon Magistrates Court.
Prosecutor Sukhveer Kandola: “The messages came to light when the complainant’s father saw the messages and then told the police.
“Consequently he was arrested and interviewed.
“In the interview he said he thought it was a closed group and it was stupid, and he does regret the messages. He said he did it to vent his anger.
“He said he was sorry for the comments and wanted to write a letter apologising to the victim.”
Wallace has a string of previous convictions, including for threatening behaviour, violence and possession of knives.
His defence lawyer Abu Sayeed said Wallace had posted the messages after he had been out protesting against the Syrian air strike vote for “two or three days and had very little sleep and had not taken his medication”.
He had also been in and out of custody since he was 13 after being expelled from school following the death of his mother when he was eight.
The court heard he had mental health issues and was taking “anti-psychotic medication for a personality disorder.”
District Judge Mark Jabbit described the abuse as “vile and insulting”.
He told Wallace:”I do give you credit for your early plea and I do accept the expression of regret you made in your interview.
“However what is clear the language and expressions you used about this MP, Ms Leslie who you have no knowledge of, on this Facebook forum went beyond any legitimate comment or protest on an extremely serious issue.
“You used the most vile, insulting and threatening language imaginable in a public forum.”
He also raised concerns that Wallace was not being supervised after he was released from prison on November 13.
Wallace, of Teignmouth Road was remanded into custody, while risk assessments reports were carried out.
He will appear for sentencing at Willesden Magistrates court on December 30.
