Yet another convert to Islam gets the idea that his new, peaceful religion commands him to commit treason and mass murder.

“Salford man pleads guilty to 16 terrorism charges,” BBC, January 22, 2018:
A Muslim convert from Salford has pleaded guilty to 16 terrorism charges.
Adam Wyatt admitted encouraging terrorism through online postings about jihad, disseminating terrorist publications and possessing e-copies of documents useful for terrorism.
Wyatt, 48, of Bridgewater Street, Salford, was remanded into custody following his guilty pleas at Manchester Crown Court on Monday….
Wyatt admitted nine counts of encouragement of terrorism, including postings on a Google Plus account which said jihad was an “obligation” for Muslims.
He admitted two counts of disseminating a terrorist publication, one which stated Britain must “atone for its sins in Palestine”.
Wyatt also pleaded guilty to five counts of possessing a document or record useful for someone committing or preparing an act of terrorism.
The documents included the Mujahideen Poisons Handbook and another entitled Advice To Those Who Cannot Leave To Sham.
Jonathan Sandiford, prosecuting, said a further hearing must be held to determine whether Wyatt, as his defence claims, was simply “reckless” in his activities.
