Reader and friend, Ari, complains, “Why don’t you ever report good news?” and sends this story that warms the cockles of my heart (even if it’s an old story). He has a point.
Dhiren Barot: Islamic Terrorist Supermodel “Loses” His Looks
Waterboarding, Shmaterboarding. This “hot tub therapy in a bucket” needs to be the fate of a lot of these guys. It’s like a great form of plastic surgery for these imprisoned beauties who’d do the same to us in a heartbeat. It’s just saving them the Abdulmutallab process of an airplane flight and a cast of extras consisting of innocent civilians.
So sad, too bad.
A prisoner has been accused of throwing boiling oil over an al Qaeda terrorist who planned to murder thousands with dirty bombs.
The 22-year-old inmate is accused of scarring for life Dhiren Barot, who was jailed for life for leading a British-based terrorist cell that plotted bombings across the world. . . .
After the alleged attack, which left Barot, 35, with excruciating burns, a news blackout was imposed to protect medical staff from possible attack while he was treated at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary.
My heart bleeds.
Barot was sentenced to life, with a minimum term of 30 years, for planning to plant radioactive, chemical or toxic gas bombs and pack limousines with nails and explosives in the UK and America. . . .
He admitted planning to bomb several targets including the New York Stock Exchange, the International Monetary Fund HQ, and the World Bank.
Barot, who recruited other bomb plotters, was sentenced to life in prison last November.
It was recommended he serve 40 years but that was cut to 30 years on appeal in May.
Actually, he’d have done us all a favor, had he gotten rid of the IMF and World Bank. But gotta love that British justice system. They’re as soft on terrorism as . . . we are. And it’s the usual, go-to-Britain-and-become-a-Muslim-extremist story.
Barot was born in India then moved to Kenya with his family.
They came to England in 1973 and his banker father had to work in a factory to support them.
Hindu Barot converted to Islam aged 20. He later travelled to Pakistan for al Qaida training and funding.
Can’t wait to see the Extremist Makeover before and after shots.
