“There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah. God is great, god is great, god is great. Britain must be punished.” Another convert to Islam doesn’t get the memo about how Islam is really a Religion of Peace.
“Muslim convert left fake nailbomb on bus, court told,” from the Yorkshire Post, June 30 (thanks to Twostellas):
A WHITE Muslim convert planted a hoax bomb on a bus full of people with a note saying that ‘Britain must be punished’, a court was told today.
Nicholas Roddis, 22, is thought to have disguised himself with a long black beard before planting the fake home-made nailbomb on a crowded bus in Rotherham, in May last year.
Leeds Crown Court was told Roddis, of Rotherham, South Yorkshire, had recently learnt the teachings of Islam in a move to convert over to the religion and had even recorded the preachings of disgraced cleric Abu Hamza.
Prosecutor Edward Brown QC told Leeds Crown Court Roddis’s conversion had been noted by work colleagues and he had alienated a childhood friend by talking about bomb-making.
On May 8 last year, a man disguised with a long black beard boarded a bus with two carrier bags, he told the jury.
Not long after he disembarked, leaving one bag behind. A passenger checked inside and saw three packages with nails, wire, a working clock and a note with foreign writing on it.
“Obviously this man was convinced he was looking straight at a bomb and shouted to the driver and the police were called,” Mr Brown said.
Fifty homes were evacuated and a 100 metre cordon was thrown up around the bus, while the bomb was detonated in a controlled explosion and found to be a hoax.
“That was to be no consolation to the passengers at the time, to those on the bus looking at what they thought was a bomb,” he added.
The writing on the piece of paper was in Arabic and read “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah. God is great, god is great, god is great. Britain must be punished.” It was signed Al Qaeda Organisation of Iraq….
