A gang of Muslim men rampaged through Liverpool city centre attacking strangers because they were white "non-Muslims".
One witness feared Amin Mohmed, Mohammed Patel and Faruq Patel were ISIS terrorists.
The drunken yobs targeted three unknown men before Mohmed, 24, and Mohammed, 20, set upon Gary Bohanna when he revealed he was Christian.
Laughing Faruq, 19, who was not convicted of a racial or religious motive, then filmed Mohmed punching St Helens councillor Paul Lynch to the ground, as his terrified girlfriend tried to protect him.
Liverpool Crown Court heard counter-terrorism officers raided the three men's homes in Bolton after the shocking incident on March 20 last year.
