Nicky Reilly, en tragisk person med Asperbergs syndrom og lærevansker, ble indoktrinert til å bli selvmordsbomber og skulle sprenge seg selv i lufta på en cafe i Exeter. Men Reilly fikk problemer og en av bombene gikk av på toilettet. Fredag ble han dømt til 18 år.
Det kunne blitt den rene massakre, cafeen var full av folk. De hørte et voldsomt smell, og ut stavret Reilly full av blod.
The Muslim convert accidentally set off a home-made nail bomb in a toilet cubicle as he prepared to target dozens of innocent customers.
The 22-year-old, described as the «least cunning person ever to have been charged with terrorism», injured only himself in the blast in May last year.
Reilly, of Plymouth, Devon, suffers from Asperger’s syndrome and has learning difficulties.
He later pleaded guilty to attempted murder and preparing an act of terrorism.
Sentencing him today at the Old Bailey, Mr Justice Calvert-Smith said: «The offence of attempted murder is aggravated by the fact that it was long-planned, that it had multiple intended victims and was intended to terrorise the population of this country.
«It was sheer luck or chance that it did not succeed in its objectives.»
Men Reilly fant ikke på dettte på egen hånd. Det var mennesker som instruerte ham i hvordan han skulle bli selvmordsbomber. De lærte ham også forklaringene og unnskyldningene.
Nicky Reilly, 22, who called himself Mohamad Abdulaziz Rashid Saeed-Alim after two of the September 11 hijackers, walked into the Giraffe restaurant in the Princesshay shopping centre in Exeter and tried to set off his homemade nail bombs.
The Old Bailey heard police found a suicide note in a folder at his mother’s flat in Plymouth where he lived complaining about sex and drunknenness in British society and the suffering of Muslims around the world.
The note, printed in red type, said «Why I did it. Everywhere Muslims are suffering at the hands of Britain, Israel and America. You have imprisoned over 1,000 Muslims in Britain alone in your war on Islam.»
He added: «In Britain it is ok for a girl to have sex without marriage and if she gets pregnant she can get an abortion so easily. When you are getting drunk on Friday and Saturday night your behaviour is worse than animals.
«You have sex in nightclub toilets and you urinate in shop doorways. You shout your foul and disgusting mouth off in the street. It is unacceptable to Allah and the true religion Islam.»
Mentioning Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay he said Britain, the US and Israel had «no real rules.»
Reilly added: «Sheikh Usama [Bin Laden] has told you the solution on how to end this war between us and many others have as well but you ignore us.
«Our words are dead until we give them life with out blood.»
Igjen en konvertitt som henfaller til blod-ritus og dødskult.
