Hate preacher Anjem Choudary was described as a "calculating" character who had deliberately supported "violent terrorist activity" as he was jailed for supporting so-called Islamic State.
Mr Justice Holroyde said that Choudary and his co-defendant Mohammed Rahman were both dangerous men who had deliberately used their speaking skills to influence impressionable followers as he sentenced them.
At no point did either of you say anything to condemn the violent means by which ISIS claimed to have established a caliphate.
On the contrary, each of you was invariably able to find a way of justifying their most appalling acts.
He described Rahman as a "hothead" while Choudary was more "calculating" and the more experienced.
"You are both mature men and intelligent men who knew throughout exactly what you were doing. You are both fluent and persuasive speakers," he added.
