Muslim love stories are a bit different. Like Romeo and Juliet, they end in suicide, but not before killing a whole bunch of other people first.
‘White widow’ Samantha Lewthwaite spells out over nine scrawled pages her need to murder disbelievers and incites others – including her children – to do the same.
The crumpled A4 manuscript was found in a Kenyan safe house in which she and fellow Islamic extremists were planning an attack on two hotels and a shopping centre.
Her children by Lindsay, nine-year-old Abdullah and Ruqayyah, eight, have the middle names Shaheed and Shahidah, male and female forms of the word martyr. Lewthwaite was pregnant with Ruqayyah when Lindsay blew himself up.
Writing in her notebook, the fugitive ‘white widow’ tells of her love for the man who ‘gave his all to Allah’ and how ‘blessed’ she is to have been the wife of a terrorist.
Lewthwaite, who converted to Islam as a teenager, writes: ‘We praise Allah and thank him for his countless blessings upon us.
‘Allah blessed me with the best husband for me. In fact, exactly what I asked for … before marriage.
‘I asked for a man that would go forth, give all he could for Allah and live a life of terrorising the disbelievers.”
She wrote: ‘Recently my beloved husband gave a talk to my eight-year-old son and five-year-old daughter.
‘He asked them what do you want to be when you are older? Both had many answers but both agreed to one of wanting to be a mujahid. He asked them how did they plan to achieve such a goal, and what really is a mujahid?
‘What makes someone a mujahid? His point to the kids, which I believe to be as relevant to many adults … was that it is not enough to say I want to be a mujahid yet live your live as [one].’
Samantha Lewthwaite’s sinister manuscript lays bare her belief that all non-Muslims should be ‘terrorised’.
She quotes extracts from the Koran justifying her philosophy that murder and bloodshed are the only true path for all Muslims in life.
She writes: ‘Allah will replace them with a people who love him and he loves’ adding: ‘We ask that Allah accepts the blood of all those who die.’
This is what happens when you import Islam into your country. Not only do you import terrorists, but some of your own people turn into monsters like this.
