Does British Muslim cop have extremist ties?

A couple days ago, Charles Johnson at LGF reported on a London news item about a Muslim cop who asked to be reassigned from his duties guarding the Israeli embassy. He said he objected to the duty on 'moral grounds'.

The Telegraph has a follow-up report which states that the officer in question was married by radical Islamic cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed, founder of the now-banned extremist group al Muhajiroun. Bakri, in fact, is now living in Lebanon after being barred from Britain.

It's almost certainly for the best that this guy isn't guarding the Israeli embassy (fox guarding the henhouse, anyone?), but that he's on the police force at all is pretty troubling.
