A man in a T-shirt supporting a Palestinian group banned in Golders Green has admitted terrorist crimes.

Feras al-Jayoosi, 34, pleaded four charges on Friday for wearing an article in support of a banned organization in the Magistrates’ Court in Westminster.

The accusations relate to Hamas’ military arm, Ids Addin Alcasum Brigade, and him in a T-shirt supporting the Islamic Jihad in Palestine.

Both groups are banned as terrorist organizations in the United Kingdom.

Three of the accusations are related to Jayoshi dressed in Golders Green, a Jewish-populated area in northern London on June 8th and 9th this year.

The fourth is about the May 30 incident at Barbury Castle, Wiltshire’s Iron Age hill fort.

Feras Al Jayoosi, 34, from Swindon, pleaded guilty to four counts of wearing an article supporting a proscribed organisation at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday. Pictured: Stock image of T-shirt supporting Hamas Izz al-Din al Qassem Brigades.

Originally from Swindon, Jayoosi stood in the dock to confirm his name, date of birth, and address before pleading guilty to the charges.

Justice of the Peace, Paul Goldspring, postponed the decision on December 17 to prepare a report.

“These are difficult cases to make a decision,” he said. “There is a subtle line between support for good reason and support for banned organizations, and you have entered your petition based on that.”

He released Jayoshi on conditional bail when he heard that the court had diagnosed him with autism.
