Jabed Hussain, 22, posted laughing emoji faces to an undercover police officer as he bragged about carrying out a terror attack
An ISIS fanatic who posted a laughing emoji as he bragged to an undercover officer that he would 'pop off' a bomb in the UK has today been jailed for nine years.
Jabed Hussain, 22, could not contain his glee about the 'big ops' and told the officer he was going to make sure 'kuffars get it big time'.
He said: 'I'm planning to get together a group of brothers and then pop it off, inshallah.'
The Old Bailey heard a huge stash of IS propaganda was found on Hussain's devices after he was arrested on suspicion of planning to join IS in Syria in April 2016.
Prosecutor Oliver Glasgow QC said when Hussain was asked where the potential 'big ops' would take place, he replied: 'The UK, were else LOL :)'
He also used a laughing face alongside the 'LOL', meaning laugh out loud, to the undercover officer with whom he had secret meetings at London's British Library.
He said he wanted the kaffir to get it 'big time' and sadded 'if this pops off then the security will be mad hot'.
Hussain was making plans to join IS in Syria last year when he was snared following an undercover investigation by the Met's Counter Terrorism Command.
Judge Anuja Dhir QC told him: 'You had, at the very least, considered and discussed with others carrying out an act of terrorism in the UK.
'If your plans to make your way to Syria had not been successful, I am sure you would have turned your mind to considering that more seriously.'
She added: 'I am satisfied you were intent on fighting for IS and that you intended that your actions would cause death, destruction and disorder.'
