Memo to Sohail Mohammed: this could be someone else daring to associate Islam with terrorism. Maybe it would be more fruitful for you to direct your efforts to dissociate Islam from terrorism at convincing people like Yassin Omar to stop plotting terror attacks in the name of Islam, rather than complaining about law enforcement.
From the BBC, with thanks to The Bloodjet:
An alleged 21/7 bomber has told a court Allah instructed him to put a rucksack on when police came to arrest him.
Woolwich Crown Court heard officers almost shot Yassin Omar, who was found standing in a bath wearing what they believed to be a bag of explosives.
But the 26-year-old denied wanting to be killed by police with a Koran on his back in order to become a martyr.
Six men deny conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to cause explosions on London transport on 21 July 2005.
Earlier this week, Mr Omar admitted setting off a device on a Tube train near Warren Street, but says it was carried out in protest at the Iraq war and was not meant to be deadly.
Bucket and books
Giving evidence for the fourth day, he was asked if he wanted to die with the Koran on his back.
“That is not the case,” he replied.
“If they saw I had a rucksack on me then they would think twice before they shot me, and it worked. Allah answered my supplication,” he said.
