Baby bottles not even safe

New York Post reported Twisted young British parents planned to sacrifice their precious baby in the evil cause of jihad by mass murder. Fanatical terror suspect Abdula Ahmed Ali, 25, and his wife, Cossor, 23, are among those being interrogated by police as suspects in the massive plot to attack trans-Atlantic flights in midair. What the outwardly normal couple had secretly plotted is almost too horrifying to consider, cops said. The Alis planned to use 6-month-old son Zain's baby bottle as a liquid bomb, blowing themselves and their child up, along with hundreds of others aboard the flight.

They should find the cleric that convinced them to do that, and throw him into a vat of boiling pig fat.
Cossar was allowed to bring Zain to a police station house so she could breast-feed him there.
I guess even baby bottles must be forbidden on airplanes.
The baby was later turned over to her grandparents.

Siggy blogged Most faith is manifested in humility before God. In this case, the mother decides that she will sacrifice her child (without being asked, of course) because her faith is so great that she knows what God wants and expects of her. In fact, like many religious zealots, she and others like her, purport to speak for God and exercising the power of life and death in His name and on His behalf. These kind of zealots (whilepredominantly Muslim in our times, they can be found in all faiths) in fact see themselves as 'Christ-like,' more than mere humans with human failings.

They are driven with much intensity and ferocity. They have to be. They are usurping God of His dominion. They are speaking for/as God- and yes, they really do believe that. If that were not true, they would not behave the way they do. Of course, there is much dysfunction to be found. Apparently, God isn't concerned with the situations in Algeria or Darfur, any more than he was concerned about Saddam reign of torture and death.

It is this kind of denial and disconnect from reality, fostered by dysfunctional Arab regimes, that has come to define Islam today.

Michelle Malkin blogged Well, Mr. Ahmed, it's because your grandson Ali was hatching a plot to blow up his own baby, along with a plane full of other people all in the name of Allah.
