British terror suspect blames ‘evil spirits’; had no intention to wage jihad

“The defence will say the defendant sought to join ISIS as a way of exorcising the various evil spirits that plagued him, that he did not have any intention to commit acts of terrorism anywhere, that he had no intention to engage in violent jihad,” Prosecutor Barnaby Jameson said at the ongoing trial this week, the report said.

    Don’t flame me for saying this, as a practicing Christian, but Mr. Jamil is not too far off the mark when he says “he was possessed with evil sprits”. The phrase sums up Islam nicely.

    Ahhh, the tired old Transference of Blame game eh? That is an excuse, NOT a reason. How do I know? By observing Democrats behavior and getting an education over the past 70 years!

    “radicalised through his interest in the internet” So that’s where the evil spirits dwell.
    Jail, strip him of British citizenship, and deport to Pakistan his place of birth (in lieu of exorcism). Right to family life? Offer one way tickets for the whole family.

    There’s no exorcism more effective than meeting 72 virgins. Too bad it didn’t work for him.
