A couple on trial for plotting a terrorist attack would bicker over who was more radical and exchange gifts to prepare for, and use in, the attack, a court in the UK has heard.
Ummariyat Mirza, 21, was reportedly given a hunting knife as a gift from his pregnant wife Madihah Taheer, also 21, as well as a life-size mannequin and a training knife to practice for the terrorist attack.
Mirza, from Alum Rock, Birmingham, and Taheer were married in April of last year, however messages between the couple before they were wed revealed Taheer’s wish to travel to Syria after reading a woman’s account of life with Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). “OMG man. She made me want it so bad,” she wrote.
The court heard how Mirza offered to stab people as a wedding present for his bride after Taheer told him to “put a ring on it” if he wanted her “list” of people she wanted him to “kill.”
Both of the major cultural threats to the West, PC and Islam, are driven by extremists who are constantly striving to outdo fellow extremists in virtue-signalling. And, despite their obvious incompatibilities, they are in an informal alliance against us normals!
