From church boy to militant Muslim

by Mark Titus from the Jamaica Gleaner

On leaving Jamaica in 1983, Abdullah el-Faisal (Trevor Harris Forrest) travelled first to Guyana, where he took a course in Arabic, before studying at the Imam Mohammed Ibn Saud Mohammed University in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, where it is believed he first heard the teachings of Osama bin Laden and other practitioners of militant Wahhabi Islam ... During subsequent searches of specialist Islamic bookshops and el-Faisal's rented house in Stratford, East London, police found recordings of him saying: "This is how wonderful it is to kill a kuffar (a non-believer) ... You crawl on his back and while you are pushing him into the hellfire you are going into paradise."
