This ‘argument’ is very illustrative of the fallacious debate on jihad and the West’s misunderstanding of Islam and the jihadists themselves. We are told by media, cultural and political elites about “misunderstanders” or “hijackers” of Islam — the kuffar explaining Islam would be laughable if the human cost wasn’t so high.
What’s it going to take for the clueless kuffar to get it? They “don’t know Islam is.” How many heads have to roll in the UK or Nigeria or Israel or Egypt or Nigeria or China or Burma or Bosnia or Thailand or Bangladesh or Manhattan or Fort Hood or …
Further, it is outrageous that the media continues to refer to these devout Muslims by their long-abandoned English names. They changed them and insist on being called by their Islamic names, Ishmael Abdullah and Mujaahid Abu Hamza. The media won’t because it rightfully indicts Islam.
“Lee Rigby murderers sentenced to life in prison”
Michael Adebolajo has been sentenced to a “life means life” prison term for the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby while Michael Adebowale was sentenced to life with a minimum of 45 years By David Barrett, and Claire Carter, The Telegraph, 26 Feb 2014
The Islamist killers of Drummer Lee Rigby erupted into violence in an Old Bailey courtroom as they were sentenced for murder yesterday.
Michael Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, had to be manhandled out of court by security guards after being told by Mr Justice Sweeney that their crime was a “betrayal of Islam”.
Adebolajo screamed at the judge as he was manhandled down the dock stairs in the historic Court No 2 but, in scenes lasting several minutes, his co-defendant was held to the floor and cuffed before being carried downstairs head first.
Relatives of Drummer Rigby, who were sitting just three feet away from the dock, stood up and cowered away from the violence.
Eight dock officers wrestled with the killers, who hacked the 25-year-old soldier to death in May last year after running him over near his barracks in Woolwich, south-east London.
Drummer Rigby’s widow Rebecca was left sobbing uncontrollably at the scenes.
Angered by the judges’ comments about Islam, Adebowale stood up and shouted: “That’s a lie. It’s not a betrayal of Islam. You don’t know what Islam is.”
The struggle erupted as the murderer yelled: “I swear by Allah that America and Britain will never have any safety. Allahu Akbar [God is Great].”
After the defendants had been removed Mr Justice Sweeney resumed his sentencing to give Adebolajo a “whole-life” tariff, meaning he will spend the rest of his life in jail.
Adebowale was given life with a minimum term of 45 years.The judge said the pair both became extremists and decided to “murder a soldier in public daylight” to advance their extremist cause.
He described the scene of the murder as a “bloodbath” and said they “butchered” Drummer Rigby.
Mr Justice Sweeney said the pair had not shown any regret for the killing, adding: “I’m sure this was a murder done for the purpose of advancing a political, religious or racial cause.
“Your sickening and pitiless conduct was in stark contrast to the compassion and bravery shown by the various women at the scene who tended to Lee Rigby’s body and challenged what you had done and said.”
Adebolajo, who wanted to be called by the name Mujaahid Abu Hamza, was dressed in a black Islamic robe and had refused to stand up in court.
Lawyers for Adebowale, who was dressed in a black skull cap and black hooded top, referred to him by the name Ishmael Abdullah.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
