It seems as though there was initially some confusion as to which brown guy to blame for the Piccadilly Line explosion.

Thanks to Kier pointing this out.

Two other people of interest have also appeared out of the blue, Martin Abdullah McDaid (army trained, a former special forces/anti-terrorist operative who apparently converted to Islam, taking the name Abdullah) and James McClintock (aka Mohammed Yacoub). Further details about each of these two characters is given in subsequent posts to this thread.

Back on Ejaz Fiaz for a moment:
* Ejaz "Jacksy" Fiaz (also named as Eliaz Fiaz): possible co-conspirator, in his early thirties, from Beeston, Leeds. Initially thought to have been the suicide bomber on the Piccadilly Line train; he has disappeared.

* Naveed Fiaz: brother of Ejaz, detained by police in the days after the attacks, but released without charge on 22 July. He was connected to three of the bombers via the Hamara Youth Access Point.

Ejaz Fiaz (also named as Eliaz Fiaz, nicknamed "Jacksy") (b. 1973) was originally thought to be the suicide bomber who attacked the Piccadilly Line train in the 7 July 2005 London bombings; that bombing was attributed to Jamal Lindsay on July 13.

Hailing from Beeston, Fiaz is married and has two young children. A fan of Elvis Presley, his favourite song was reportedly Make the World Go Away - Some sources have suggested that he was diagnosed with a mild form of schizophrenia several months before the attack, but he remained a highly secular Muslim, often drinking beer with his neighbours.

His younger brother Naveed was arrested by British authorities, when it was realised that Ejaz could not be found."

Arab News reported the following:
The death of the fourth bomber Eliaz Fiaz has yet to be confirmed, as the identification of the body parts of the victims is proving to be painstakingly slow.

Here's a little more on the Fiaz clan:
Nadim Fiaz is the fourth bomber: The Times
July 14, 2005 22:05 IST
Last Updated: July 14, 2005 22:07 IST


The fourth bomber who caused maximum damage in the King's Cross station was identified by neighbours in Leeds as Ejaz or Nadim Fiaz, a man in his early 30s.

Fiaz, known to his friends as Jacksy, is believed to have travelled separately to Luton where he met the three other bombers, The Times daily reported on Thursday.

Police had on Wednesday identified three bombers as Hasib Hussain (19), Shehzad Tanweer (22), and Mohammed Saddique Khan (30), all from West Yorkshire in northern England.

A house in the Beeston area of Leeds, where Fiaz's family used to live, was cloaked from view on Wednesday by a blue tarpaulin behind which police were conducting a search.

Neighbours said the house, which has been empty for several years since Fiaz's parents separated, was a scene of regular, late night visits.

"Young men would turn up at the house at 2 am and 3 am and hold meetings that would last for hours," a neighbour said, adding that these meetings were going on for a long time.

Detectives are trying to establish who may have attended the meetings and if they were part of the terrorist cell that planned the London bombings which killed 52 people.

Fiaz's brother, Naveed, has been identified locally as the man being questioned by anti-terrorist branch detectives at Paddington Green police station, the report said.

His home, near the former family residence, became the seventh property in West Yorkshire to be sealed off in the widening operation.

According to the report, Naveed, 29, whose English-born wife is expecting their fourth child, handed himself in to police voluntarily for questioning."

Hamara Youth Access Point
   
The Hamara Youth Access Point (Hyap) is a drop-in centre for teens in Leeds, Britain, operated by the Hamara Healthy Living Centre, an Islamic charity partly funded by the UK government. The drop-in centre was frequented by several of the suspects in the 7 July 2005 London bombings, and is believed to have been where some were recruited into the terrorist cell.

Both Shehzad Tanweer, 22, and Hasib Hussain, 19, who have been identified as probable suicide bombers, frequented the Hyap, according to police, as did Naveed Fiaz, another man with connections to the suspects. Fiaz has been arrested and is being questioned, but it is not known what his role was; his brother, Ejaz Fiaz, was initially thought to have been one of the four bombers, but has disappeared. The Leeds teacher Mohammed Sadique Khan, 30, also identified by police as a suicide bomber, acted as a mentor to youths at the centre.

The centre is directly across the street from a mosque, which is said to have asked Khan and others to stop having political activities there, including community meetings opposed to UK policy in Iraq, which they then moved to the centre.

Police have searched the premises and confiscated for forensic investigation items such as computers.

Iqra bookshop

The Hyap's status permitted it to apply for grants from the UK government for various program monies totalling more than £1 million. Among the programs funded this way was the Iqra bookshop, which sold Islamic materials, including religious tracts and political videos and DVDs, claimed to be anti-West propaganda. The Leeds suspects are believed to have watched some of the DVDs with graphic footage of civilian deaths in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the West Bank.

The home of at least one worker at Iqra has been searched for possible connections to the bombings. One of the Iqra workers is Naveed Fiaz.

The men who ran Iqra - Mohammad Tafazal, army-trained Martin Abdullah McDaid and Naveed Fiaz - allegedly funded the store through grants to the Hamara Youth Centre, which received £589,000 in taxpayers' money made up of a £200,000 capital grant, a £200,000 neighbourhood renewal grant and a £189,000 EU building grant.
Bomber Siddique Khan was a regular companion of Fiaz for several years and the pair even visited our insider's home.
The insider, who asked not to be named for fear of reprisals, also says McDaid asked for high-security encryption for their computer systems so it would hard even for government agencies to access e-mails.
Any idea who army-trained McDaid is?

McDaid, a former special forces soldier, was also closely linked to the Iqra bookshop and knew the three Leeds-based bombers. When The Sunday Times approached him about Yacoub last week, McDaid said: “Whether he was at the Iqra bookstore or not is none of your business — you should fear Allah.”
Tartan Taliban’ linked to bombers
Abul Taher
A MUSLIM convert who was arrested on suspicion of being an Al-Qaeda terrorist is thought to have presided over Islamic study circles at a bookshop in Leeds where the 7/7 bombers were radicalised.

The Sunday Times has been told that Scots-born James McLintock, the so-called Tartan Taliban, preached at the Iqra bookshop in 2000, shortly before moving to Pakistan with his family.

His seminars are thought to have been attended by Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, the suspected ringleader of the July 7 suicide attacks on London, and Shehzad Tanweer, 22, the Aldgate bomber. Both had close links to the bookshop. Hasib Mir Hussain, 18, the bus bomber, was also regularly seen at the store, which sold violent anti-western videos and DVDs.

The Scot, who changed his name to Mohammed Yacoub, was arrested by the Pakistani authorities at a checkpoint near the Afghan border in December 2001.

Although he claimed to be working for a charity in the region, he was taken to a military prison and questioned by the CIA and anti-terrorism officers from Scotland Yard. Dundee-born Yacoub was released a month later.

Yacoub, 41, was arrested again while visiting Manchester in 2003. He was questioned by police investigating possible Al-Qaeda cells operating in the UK, but was released without charge. He has consistently denied having terrorist links or knowledge of terrorist activity.

Yacoub lived in Bradford during the mid-1990s. By 2000 he was working in nearby Leeds at a second Islamic bookshop called Rays of Truth with a fellow Muslim convert, Martin Abdullah McDaid.

McDaid, a former special forces soldier, was also closely linked to the Iqra bookshop and knew the three Leeds-based bombers. When The Sunday Times approached him about Yacoub last week, McDaid said: “Whether he was at the Iqra bookstore or not is none of your business — you should fear Allah.”

A former friend of Khan’s said: “Yacoub was definitely giving study circles. I remember walking past the Iqra shop one day. I asked who was giving the talk and a brother said it was Yacoub. Other brothers I know were also aware that Yacoub was giving study circles.”

It has also emerged that an extremist Muslim cleric, now in prison, preached at mosques in the district of Leeds where three of the four bombers lived.

Sheikh Abdullah al-Faisal was jailed in 2003 for inciting followers in study circles, which he conducted across the country, to murder Jews, Christians and Hindus. He also encouraged teenage boys to train and die in the name of Allah.

Afzal Choudhary, a race equality worker in Leeds, said: “Sheikh Faisal came at least twice to Beeston. I should know, because I was one of the people opposed to his coming.”

Postman Patel's take on the IQRA bookshop
PROPAGANDA SHOP ... whose ?

The daily Mirror have given us some interesting information .. the 19 year old Jamaican who splurged £900 on exclusive scent yesterday, nor today their intrepid reporters have an unnamed source who tells them ...

PROPAGANDA SHOP.. FUNDED BY LOTTO CASH
By Jeremy Armstrong Daily Mirror 19 July 2005
The men who ran the Iqra Learning Centre in Beeston, Leeds - Mohammad Tafazal (AKA Taf) , army-trained Martin Abdullah McDaid and Naveed Fiaz - allegedly funded the store through grants to the Hamara Youth Centre, which received £589,000 in taxpayers' money made up of a £200,000 capital grant, a £200,000 neighbourhood renewal grant and a £189,000 EU building grant says the Mirror today .

Siddique Khan who died in the bombing was a regular companion of Fiaz for several years and the pair even visited our insider's home.

Keys to the "terror base" at 18 Alexandra Grove in Burley, Leeds, were regularly used by "brothers in arms" who came to the store and needed somewhere to stay.

The insider, who asked not to be named for fear of reprisals, also says McDaid asked for high-security encryption for their computer systems so it would hard even for government agencies to access e-mails.

He claimed: "Hidden Agenda and Think Again (£5 a throw DVD’s the Mirror obtained) even stole material from the Government's own websites and then used it in the propaganda messages against them."

He went on: "Taf would tell us about how he could get money from the Hamara and said it all came from Leeds city council, community grants and even EU funding.

"I could not believe all this Government money was being used to pump-out such anti-Government, anti-West propaganda."

He said that the address where the DIY explosives were allegedly found - 18 Alexandra Grove in Burley - was immediately known to me because that was the place that was used to house any 'brothers' who needed somewhere to stay."

Police know the keys were with bomber Lindsay three weeks before the attacks.
Khalid Khaliq, the Ikra assistant being quizzed by police, was not at his family address yesterday. A man leaving Fiaz's home refused to comment and his partner Tracey Corrigan declined to come to the door.

Tafazal has not been seen at either of his addresses in Leeds for several days.
Abdullah McDaid referred us to his London-based solicitor!!!, who has declined to return our calls for the past five days.

"I could not believe all this Government money was being used........"

It may surprise the Mirror and their readers to know that the Governments (includng the UK) have setup "sting" sites to entrap paedophiles... they have encouraged the development of dissenting voices .. a famous case was the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh and "International Times" in the early 60's run by Jim Haynes ex US Army Intelligence...at the time the CIA have agreed they funded "Encounter".

Of course any such suggestion that this was the case in Leeds with the Iqra learning Centre would be far fetched, outrageous, without foundation, unsupported by evidence and complete nonsense.

Just like the idea that the 3 victims of the bombing from the locality , and their Jamaican friend were raging Jihadists and islamic fundamentalist seeking martyrdom.

Many years ago in the 60's there was an Alternative Bookshop in Leeds, near the Univerisyt, called Books of Leeds, which was funded and run by a lady who turned out to be the daughter of the UK Ambassador to Moscow. A chap who worked there, ended up in Pyongyang working as the official translator of the State newspaper in English of the DPRK, where I met him.

They attracted and supplied by post a nationwide audience for left wing and radical books .. Che , Regis Debray, the Spectaclists etc.,even Mao's Little Red Book.

Small world.

Footnote : Naveed Fiaz cannot be contacted by the Press because he was arrested by Police ( so far the ONLY person arrested) last Tuesday when they raided all the Leeds addresses, he is held under the Anti Terrorist legislation - no comment has been made by the Police. Now yer actual conspiracy theorist might make soemthing of that.... His brother, Ejaz is said to be a registered schizophrenic and moved to Luton from Leeds last year..
