Khadidja Benboukhemis is a former wife of a hate preacher jailed for terrorism offences has been sent to prison herself for sharing shocking extremist material online.
She shared a so-called Islamic State video showing beheadings and mutilated children.
The Kingston Crown Court admitted sending the material last year but she insisted she was unaware of the content and was “trying to gain the recipient’s opinion of it”.
Benboukhemis sent someone a song, known as a ‘Nasheed’, which was an explicit encouragement to support Islamic State terrorist group.
She also sent a video called “Flames of War 2” which a judge said contained graphic recordings of beheadings, executions by setting victims on fire, the desecration of the dead bodies of Islamic State opponents and the mutilated bodies of children killed in the Syrian War.
The video, which was almost an hour long, was intermingled with footage of attacks by Islamic state on Western targets, as well as battle scenes and the glorification of Islamic State fighters.
During a search of her address, investigators found devices containing evidence of discussions about Islamic State and evidence that some files had been shared to others by Telegram.
She was further arrested on July 30 and was charged with two counts of dissemination of terrorist publications.
The court heard Benboukhemis was married to former BT electrician Izzadeen, whose name was Trevor Brooks before he converted, from June 2014 to November 2017.
Benboukhemis was living a double life – working, volunteering and looking after her children by day – but by night immersed in an online world of rhetoric and discussion around Islam that became increasingly extreme.
