British Muslim convert was involved in Kenya jihad attack
Interpol has issued a wanted person’s alert for British woman Samantha Lewthwaite – in the wake of the massacre at a shopping centre in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.I see, so she was the wife of one of the suicide bombers back in 2005. There's a vital lesson in this case, to be sure: if there's a married couple who adhere to Islam and one turns to jihad activities, it's advisable to keep an eye on the other lest they follow suit. I hope that vile woman is caught and sent to face the highest court along with her husband.
The move has raised suspicions that Lewthwaite, the widow of 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsey, could have been involved in the armed assault on the Westgate mall.
Somali Islamist group Al Shabaab, which is linked to al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for attack, in which at least 72 people were killed.
Some survivors have described a pale-skinned woman among the militants.
Update: The Toronto Star says that:
Lewthwaite’s own story began sympathetically when she was portrayed as the distraught pregnant widow of Germaine Lindsay, who killed 26 people when he blew up a train in London’s Underground on July 7, 2005.Translation: she spoke with a taqqiya tongue during the tragedy in 2005, and has since revealed her true colors.
The Muslim convert condemned her husband’s crime and blamed the influence of radical mosques. “How these people could have turned him and poisoned his mind is dreadful,” she told Britain’s Sun newspaper eight years ago. “He was an innocent, naive and simple man. I suppose he must have been an ideal candidate.” Then she disappeared.
In December 2011, Kenyan authorities raided three Mombasa homes and reportedly found bomb-making material similar to that used in the London attacks in a home allegedly used by Lewthwaite.
She was not there, but she was charged in absentia with her alleged British accomplice, Jermaine Grant, for plotting to bomb hotels frequented by western tourists.
