Muslim converts make the best terrorists because they can’t wait to prove how devoted to Islam’s teachings they are.
Daily Mail The UK’s first Muslim female suicide bomb plotter smiled and performed an ISIS salute (above) as she was caged for a minimum of 14 years today over a plan to blow up St Paul’s Cathedral. Unrepentant Muslim-convert, Safiyya Amira Shaikh, 37, a single mom, formerly known as Michelle Ramsden, said she “hated the UK” and wanted “a lot to die” in the planned Easter terror attack.
Shaikh tried to make contact with a bomb maker online and asked them to build two improvised explosive devices (IEDs) while plotting the suicide bombing attack between August 19 and October 10 last year.
She later met with her contact, and handed them two bags, in which the IEDs were to be placed, not realizing she was an undercover officer. Shaikh intended to leave one device in the hotel and then carry the other into St Paul’s, where she would detonate it, killing herself and innocent people.
She visited the Cathedral to assess its security arrangements and the best place to detonate a bomb. Her plan was to carry out the attack at Christmas with all the significance that entailed but she decided to give herself more time to plan and encourage others to commit an attack,’ she added.
The Old Bailey was told how Shaikh radicalised in 2015 after converting to Islam in 2007, following an act of kindness by a neighbouring Muslim family.
