A convert to Islam today admitted attacking non-Muslims in East London as part of a campaign against Western culture. Jordan Horner was part of the 'Muslim Patrol' which wandered around Tower Hamlets late at night threatening people for drinking beer. The group said they wanted to 'kill non-believers' and said they would stab revellers, as well as uploading YouTube videos in which they criticised non-Muslims for what they were wearing. Horner, 19, was previously jailed for six weeks after telling photographers gathered outside hate preacher Anjem Choudary's house that they could end up like murdered soldier Lee Rigby. In the early house of January 6 this year, Horner and others apparently approached a group of five men walking along the street then snatched cans of beer out of their hands before emptying them into the gutter. The 'Muslim Patrol' is alleged to have said: 'Why are you poisoning your body? It is against Islam. This is Muslim Patrol. Kill the non-believers.' One then told another to 'go get the shank [knife]', but as the men walked away Horner threw punches at them, hitting one in the jaw. He is also alleged to have threatened two couples and a man in East London between December and January. At an earlier hearing at Thames Magistrates Court, prosecutor Kehinde Adesina said that on January 6 Horner and his extremist friends took to the streets to enforce Sharia Law. 'Prior to the incident there were some videos uploaded to YouTube about people being inappropriately dressed in east London,' he said. 'Between 4am and 5am a group of five male friends were out drinking enjoying a night out. They had cans of beer in their hands. 'The group were approached by Mr Horner and some other men in Muslim dress. They took the beer can out of one of the men's hands and poured it out.' Miss Adesina added: 'The victims describe the main aggressor as being ginger with a ginger beard. And one victim said the white ginger male punched him in the jaw. 'It was a group attack and a religiously aggravated assault.' Today Horner appeared at the Old Bailey alongside fellow converts Ricardo McFarlane, 26, and a 23-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons. McFarlane appeared in the dock dressed in white robes and a headscarf, while Horner - who calls himself Jamaal Uddin - and the other man appeared via video link from Belmarsh Prison. Threats: Horner told a photographer he could end up like murdered soldier Lee Rigby, pictured Threats: Horner told a photographer he could end up like murdered soldier Lee Rigby, pictured Horner pleaded guilty to two counts of ABH and admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, but denied another count of ABH and two of affray. McFarlane and the 23-year-old denied the three ABH charges, while the unnamed man also pleaded not guilty to affray. Horner will not stand trial after his guilty pleas, and will be sentenced after the trial of the two other defendants, which starts on November 11. McFarlane, from Camberwell, had his conditional bail renewed at today's hearing, while Horner, from Walthamstow, and the other man were remanded in custody. It can now be reported that Horner was jailed earlier this year when he threatened photographers, saying they would meet the same fate as 'boy soldier' Lee Rigby if they took pictures of Anjem Choudary. He was convicted of assault and criminal damage after beating up one photographer and smashing up another's car. Horner shoved Bradley Page outside Choudary's house in Walthamstow two days after Drummer Rigby was hacked to death in Woolwich on May 22, and said: 'You should be careful. What happened to the boy soldier could happen to you.' The following day, he told Sonjia Horsman he would cut her 'f***ing head off' and caused £3,000 worth of damage to her car. The teenager converted to Islam last year after being approached outside a pub, and has cut himself off from his family and former friends.
