Neo-Nazis Soliciting Murder

leave a comment »

Liverpool Click has news of an ongoing trial:

“Two neo-Nazi members of the extremist Aryan Strike Force have appeared in court accused of soliciting the hate killings of Jews.

Trevor Hannington, 58, and Michael Heaton, 42, face a total of seven counts of “soliciting to commit murder”, and “using threatening or abusive language likely to stir up racial hatred”.

At the beginning of the hearing at Liverpool Crown Court, stocky shaven-headed Hannington entered guilty pleas on five further charges which he had previously denied.

These included posting vile, racist slurs on a website for violent extremists The Aryan Strike Force which read “Jews are parasites feeding off others” and “Jews will always be scum”.

He also admitted posting copies of notorious bomb-making handbooks associated with terrorism on the website, which he administered, known as the “Anarchists Cookbook” and the “Terrorism Encyclopaedia”.

Wearing a plain white t-shirt, Hannington, of South Wales, scowled in the dock as he admitted a final charge of circulating instructions for constructing a flamethrower out of a water pistol.

In a five hour hearing, prosecuting counsel Andrew Edis QC, told the court that co-defendant Michael Heaton had posted a string of threatening messages on the Aryan Strike Force website, which he ran with Hannington.

Mr Edis told the court that Hannington’s obscene postings included messages that said:” Kill the Jew, Kill the Jew! Burn down the synagogue. Burn the scum.”

Mr Edis described Heaton’s alleged hate-filled postings.

They are said to include: “Jews will always be scum and must be destroyed” and “I would encourage any religion or race which wants to destroy the Jews, I hate them with a passion”.
