(Tea Party 247) – Michael Adebolajo, the killer of British soldier Lee Rigby, is working as a so-called “de-radicalisation” mentor at the very same prison where the London Bridge jihadi, Usman Khan was an inmate.
That is, before Khan was released prematurely so he could go try to kill more Westerners in the name of Allah.
Adebolajo, 34, supposedly renounced extremism last year and apologized to the family of 25-year-old Rigby, who he attacked with a knife in 2013, again, in the name of Allah.
Now, he’s been taking on an official role in talking to other jailed jihadis.
If he tried it on Khan, it sure didn’t work. (Or did it?)
The Religion of Peace blog explains:
Adebolajo, given life for murdering Lee, has been assisting pastoral prison workers to help extremists reform at HMP Woodhill — the jail Khan was freed from in December last year.
A source said: “Michael’s U-turn has been astonishing but he insists he is on the path of reform and has been helping to talk to other prisoners about the importance of staying on the right path.
“He tells others that he made a drastic mistake and is trying to encourage others to shun extremism and not go down the path he went down.
“He was in the prison at the same time as Usman Khan.”
Khan, who killed two reform workers last month after attending a prison rehabilitation seminar, had been jailed for 16 years in 2010 for plotting to blow up the London Stock Exchange.
But just two years later, while in Woodhill, he began saying he wanted to be free of Islamist extremism and repeatedly renounced his radical ways until he was released halfway through his sentence.
Adebolajo had links to Anjem Choudary’s extremist group al-Muhijaroun, just like Khan.
He and his accomplice, Adebowale, hacked Lee, father of one, to death outside of Woolwich Barracks in South East London in 2013 as he quoted the Quran.
When Adebolajo apparently saw the light last year, he told prison staff and a prison inmate of his supposed remorse, claiming he had “misinterpreted” Islam’s holy book.
He has now asked to be known as Michael after years of demanding he be called Mujahid Abu Hamza.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “Adebolajo is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous extremists in the prison system. He has never wavered from his beliefs before — which makes this confession all the more remarkable.
“He approached a fellow inmate and a member of prison pastoral staff to say he finally regretted the murder.”
He reportedly admitted he’d been brainwashed and that his attack on Lee was “a misguided attack on an institution” (that almost sounds like an excuse!)
So now he’s counseling other prisoners to reject Islamic extremism?
During his trial in 2013, he kissed the Koran and insisted on only being referred to as Mujahid Abu Hamza.
He screamed “Allahu Akbar” and fought with policemen in the dock as he was given a whole-life tariff….
