The rabble-rouser who spent his honeymoon at a squalid migrant camp in Calais was jailed for being part of a gang of looters in the 2011 riots, the Daily Mail can reveal.
Syed Bokhari was handed a nine-month term for raiding an electronics shop at the height of the unrest, which caused hundreds of millions of pounds in damage across Britain.
The 28-year-old former asylum-seeker, who was born in Pakistan, targeted a shop owned by an elderly man who migrated to the UK from India in the 1960s.
Today Bokhari supplies food and clothes to the thousands of migrants who wait in the French port to slip illegally into UK-bound lorries and trains.
But on his Facebook page, he boasts about his prison term, writing: 'I'm happy to prove to you fools that I ain't no humanitarian.'
He was last week exposed as a far-Left activist who has marched alongside anarchist groups whom French police say encourage migrants to riot in Calais.
Now the Mail has established that the university graduate was part of a group which stormed Seba Electronics in Ealing, West London.
Looters broke through the security shutters before stealing TVs and other luxury electronics worth £200,000.
Last night the store owner, 84-year-old Bridj Seghal, called Bokhari a hypocrite and said he should be 'exposed so the migrants know what he is really like'.
He said: 'The raid on my shop was highly organised and the whole place was destroyed. I was on the other side of the road as they cleared out the shop. There was nothing I could do to stop them. He talks about wanting to help migrants on the one hand but on the other hand is trying to steal from one.'
Bokhari pleaded guilty to entering the shop as a trespasser with intent to steal at Thames magistrates' court in August 2013. He was then jailed for nine months by a judge a Wood Green Crown Court.

Since his release, he has repeatedly called on his followers to attend far-Left demonstrations where he has stirred up the crowd with incendiary rants alongside his German wife Mona Dohle.
On his Facebook page, he wrote: 'Two years ago the state made the mistake of letting me out of their dungeons. Couple of years down the line my life is back on track but they won't leave me to live it out in peace.
'[I'm] still revolutionary – there might not be a Bolshevik party but I'm still a Bolshevik.
Anyone who wants to [say] 'Syed [is] just a charity worker now' – I'm happy to prove to you fools that I ain't no humanitarian.'
He concludes his rant by saying: 'A big f*** you to the Met police, Special Branch, MI5, GCHQ, the whole of France, David Cameron and the Conservatives.'
Bokhari and his bride were lionised in the Communist newspaper Morning Star for spending their honeymoon visiting migrants at the squalid Jungle camp at Calais.
The pair run an organisation called London2Calais, which supplies food and clothes for migrants from the Middle East and Africa who are trying to reach the UK from the French port.
Last November he was detained under the Terrorism Act 2000 for three hours for questioning by British police working in Calais.
'We are routinely delayed, questioned and treated like criminals because of the solidarity we bring to refugees stuck in The Jungle in Calais,' he said at the time.
His wife, a multi-lingual journalist who works for a British financial and investment publishing company, has complained on social media that she is being watched by Special Branch and was recently questioned by British border police in Calais when her German passport was temporarily taken from her for examination.

Earlier this month, during a protest against government immigration policy outside the Eurostar terminal at London St Pancras, Miss Dohle told a crowd of banner-waving London2Calais supporters: 'David Cameron and Theresa May, they're killing people, and that's something we can't accept.'
Bokhari's communist leanings were evident during his years as a politics student at Sussex University when he described himself as a 'revolutionary agitator'. In his third year he was suspended over allegations that he held senior staff hostage during a protest.
He was also heavily involved in the Muslim Defence League, which is dedicated to fighting Islamophobia, racism and fascism, until he was banned from the organisation.
Bokhari did not respond to requests for a comment yesterday.
