UK: Investigators considering if jihad recruiter preyed on Liverpool bomber’s guilt for converting to Christianity



As I noted here, since Muhammad prescribed death for those who leave Islam (cf. Bukhari 9.84.57), apostasy is a very serious offense that can only be outweighed by an even greater good deed. And there is no deed greater than jihad: a hadith has a man asking Muhammad, “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” Muhammad replied, “I do not find such a deed.” (Bukhari 56.4.2785) If Swealmeen was going through a time of personal crisis and decided to return to Islam, he would have needed to expiate his great sin of apostasy.

“Extremists ‘may have groomed Liverpool bomber to atone for changing religion,’” by Jonathan Coles, Mirror, November 17, 2021:

The Liverpool hospital bomber may have been convinced by radical Islamists to carry out the terror attack to atone for his conversion to Christianity, it is claimed.

Emad Al Swealmeen, 32, formally switched faiths in 2017 at a cathedral less than a mile from where he died on Poppy Day.

It claimed that counter-terror police are now probing whether extremists used his conversion to groom the suspect – also known as Enzo Almeni – but warned answers could take weeks.

A source is reported as saying: “Investigators are considering if fundamentalist preyed on the bomber’s sense of guilt after converting to Christianity and that the only way he could seek forgiveness was to become a suicide bomber.”

Investigators believed it is highly unlikely that Al Swealmeen was not helped in making the bomb or planning the attack, the insider added to i.

Police are currently concentrating on the bomber’s rented flat in Rutland Avenue, Liverpool, by Sefton Park.

MPs on Tuesday suggested that triacetone triperoxide – known as TATP or “Mother of Satan” – was the explosive substance used.

TATP was used in the 2015 Paris attacks, the Manchester Arena bombing in 2017 and the failed Parsons Green Underground attack the same year. Video of the Liverpool blast suggests that the detonator exploded but that the main device failed to trigger….

Home Office Minister Damian Hinds said on a visit to Liverpool there was no evidence of a “terrorist cell” in the city.

Four men aged 20, 21, 26 and 29 arrested under terrorism laws in the Kensington area of Liverpool have now been released.

Mr Hinds said: “There’s nobody else being sought at the moment by police. That doesn’t mean there couldn’t be, further down the line.”…
