Thereafter you were radicalised and each became an extremist – espousing a cause and views which, as has been said elsewhere, are a betrayal of Islam and of the peaceful Muslim communities who give so much to our country.

ADEBOLAJO: RIGBY KILLER FIGHT IN THE DOCK AS HE IS LOCKED UP UNTIL HE DIES

WOOLWICH Woolwich killer Michael Adebolajo fought prison guards in the dock of the Old Bailey shouting 'Allahu Akbar' ' as he was told to die behind bars for the murder of Lee Rigby. His accomplice Michael Adebowale was given 45 years for beheading the soldier in what the judge found to be a terrorist attack. Both men had to be dragged kicking and screaming to the cells after they were told their perverted religious beliefs were a 'betrayal of Islam.' The British Muslim converts butchered the 25 year-old soldier 'like a piece of meat' yards from Woolwich Barracks in a bid to spark a wave of jihadi violence in Britain. Adebolajo, 29, and Adebowale, 22, were convicted of the murder in December but sentencing was delayed for a crucial Appeal Court ruling on the legality of 'whole life terms'.
