B.C. terrorist suspects made video to inspire others to join holy war, trial hears

John Nuttall and Amanda Korody are captured in a surveillance still image taken from an RCMP undercover video.

VANCOUVER — A pair of accused terrorists recorded a video calling on Muslims to rise up and join a holy war for Islam — no matter the cost — days before their alleged Canada Day plan to detonate pressure-cooker bombs at the provincial legislature, their trial heard Monday.

A B.C. Supreme Court jury watched a video that shows John Nuttall and his wife Amanda Korody outlining their motivation.

Nuttall, whose face is concealed behind a white-and-black head scarf, says Canada has declared war on Islam by killing Muslims and refusing to recognize Palestine’s right to exist.

“Fight them — don’t ever stop fighting them,” he says in a video recorded June 29, 2013.

“We are people who embrace death the way you embrace life”…
