UK: Female convert to Islam “boss” behind 7/7 jihad mass murder attacks

Yet another convert to Islam misunderstands her new, peaceful religion, and still no mosque or Islamic school in the U.K. has any program to teach against this understanding of Islam they supposedly reject. “Terror link of 7/7 widow and ‘bomb factory,'” by Ted Jeory for the Express, May 19 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Suspicions have grown that Muslim convert Samantha Lewthwaite, now known as the White Widow due to her fugitive status in East Africa, was actually one of the masterminds behind the killings in 2005. Immediately after the explosions which murdered 52 people on the London transport system, she said she “abhorred” the actions of her dead husband Jermaine Lindsay, whose bomb detonated near King’s Cross on the Piccadilly Line.

However, the middle-class Muslim convert from Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, has since risen to a senior status in the Al Shabaab movement in Kenya and Somalia, a terror group affiliated to Al Qaeda.

Believed to be behind its funding and propaganda, the 29-year-old has assumed cult status among her jihadi followers for her characteristic street-slang rants at non-Muslim “kuffar”.

An arrest warrant was issued for her last May after she failed to appear in court in Kenya to face bomb-making charges.

Her alleged co-conspirators are two other Britons, her second husband Habib Saleh Ghani, from Hounslow, west London and Jermaine Grant, from east London, who remains in custody in Kenya after his arrest in December 2011.

At the time of Grant’s arrest, he reportedly told police that Lewthwaite was “the boss”.

They are all accused of possessing chemicals and “conspiring to improvise an explosive device with the intent to cause harm to innocent civilians”….

    And we can also say:

    “Yet another female convert to Islam misunderstands her new, peaceful religion, and still too many of those in the Counter Jihad continue to imply in one way or another that female Muslims are “victims” who need our help — rather than our reasonably assumed actual or potential deadly enemy.”

    I’ve seen a lotta people in here bad mouthing the Islam for all kinds of reasons, among them its purported mistreatment of women.

    Well, maybe that was wrong. Reading this article, I see a couple of things to give pause. Number one, Islam’s not a closed “us against the world” system, they’re willing to bring new blood under their big umbrella from the outside.

    The other thing is that here we have a gal bursting through the glass ceiling, in Dar al Islam, and working on some of the most important projects, no less.

    As a similar barricade hurdler Oprrah might say, “Samantha, you go sistah.”

    @LemonLime:

    Rest assured that Uncle Kepha is one for whom all chivalrous feelings towards Muslim womanhood vanished long ago. As a fundamentalist Christian, I’m too steeped in the Bible to be an advocate of massacre, rape, robbery, and the like; but as the father of military-age sons, I think they’ve got better things to do with their lives than go off to rescue poor, oppressed Muslimas who, at the drop of a hat, will poor into the streets screaming “Marg-bar-Amrika!” and teach their children to strap on bombs and blow themselves up to take out a few of their non-Muslim peers.

    I recall in the aftermath of 9/11, when I was a non-traditional grad student, how all seven Afghan feminists seem to have been trotted out to tour American campuses and talk about the evils of the Taliban. Yes, I agree that the Taliban are evil, but methinks that if the hand that rocks the Islamic cradle really wants “liberation”, she’ll think of some way to get it without the help of America’s uniformed youth.

    I don’t see why we need to make any statement about “all Muslim women”. Blanket statements about “all Xs” are usually only true if they are tautologies, e.g., “All Muslims believe Muhammad was a prophet.”

    Some Muslim women are victims; some are perpetrators; some are both; some are neither.

    This particular Muslim woman is a criminal. We know this from her actions, not from her group membership. Rather than sneering at people, we should be fighting crime.

    Not all women who convert to Islam *stay* with Islam: our own ‘Istanbul Chick’ is a case in point. The Chick did *not* know what Islam was all about, in its full ugly entirety, when she joined; but as soon as she *did* find out, she unsaid the shahada and bolted as fast and as far as she could.

    We don’t know what Ms Lewthwaite thought Islam was all about when she originally joined the Mob; we don’t know whether she joined it in the spirit of someone joining the Hellfire Club, in full conscious awareness of its evilness, or whether at the very beginning she was lied to (as many converts are lied to) and then, when she did find out the awful truth, chose to embrace it rather than reject it; all we know is that she *has* embraced it in its entirety rather than renouncing it and fleeing, and is presently actively working for the Mob.

    A further thought: in the giant S & M bordello that is the dar al Islam, females can be either prostitutes or Madams.

    This one – this recruit to the Ummah or Mohammedan Mob – appears to have chosen to aim for the role of Madam, working for and with the pimps and slave-takers.

    The UK authorities would do best to declare her Outlaw and Traitor, cancel her passport, and let the Kenyan (non-Muslim) soldiers and cops know that there will be *no* diplomatic repercussions whatsoever, should she get taken out in a firefight.

    Final thought: Ms Lewthwaite may well run afoul of the principle enunciated in lapidary fashion by James Parkes, writing about the Muslim Mamluk dynasty in the late middle ages: “by intrigues and assassination they ascended the throne and by intrigues and assassination they perished”. If she’s been trying to climb the greasy pole that is the ‘I’m more Islamic than you are’ game, she may well meet her end at the hand not of a nice Kenyan Christian cop or soldier, but stickily and nastily at the hand of one or more of her ever-lovin bros and sistas in the Ummah.

    There is nothing stopping Muslimahs from being a victims and perpetrators at the same time…

    ‘Number one, Islam’s not a closed “us against the world” system…’

    That’s two different ideas…Islam is not a closed system since it accepts and forces conversoins, but it is a ‘Us against the world, system, or at least the dar al-harb parts of it…

    ”This particular Muslim woman is a criminal. We know this from her actions, not from her group membership. Rather than sneering at people, we should be fighting crime.”

    A ‘criminal’ ? She’s an evil monster. She’s also a ‘member of a group’ that collectively espouses a fundamentally evil and ugly creed, founded by an evil and vicious man.

    Would you simply describe the 7/7 bombings, which she knew all about, as a ‘crime’ ? Personally, I’d call it mass murder.

    Let’s hope the Kenyan police track her down, and put a bullet through her evil head.

    In any other society, with any other culture, this sweeping broad-brush axiom is fairly reasonable. It becomes irrational, given all we know about Islam and about Muslim words and deeds — or should know, by now, sitting atop this hideously massive mountain of data higher than Mt. Everest — to persist in applying it to Islam and Muslims.

    Even if Muslims exist who would be spared our condemnation and our gravely alarmed concern for our own safety, the problem is that we cannot sufficiently identify who they are (and to know why that’s a reasonable assumption, cf. said mountain). Diana may gamble the lives of her friends, family and fraternité (et sororité) of fellow citizens on the game of Muslim Roulette, but I sure as Hell ain’t.

    Yes, mass murder — but also something more: an act of war against us, by members of an international army dedicated to destroying and subjugating all Mankind.

    Agreed, LemonLime.

    That would come as no surprise to me, DDA. Remember the evil Canadian “revert” to Islam who blithely went off to Afghanistan to wage bloody Jihad in the name of her new creed? Despite having a sufficiently vile pro-Jihad blog, she was taken hostage by the Taliban, offered for ransom, then’so I understand”was finally slaughtered by them.
