Sinister web diary 'of British 7/7 bomb widow': Jihad is an obligation we must accept, says blog
The ‘white widow’ of a 7/7 London bomber is believed to be the author of a sinister online blog detailing her dedication to jihad and the ‘supremacy of Islam’. British Muslim convert Samantha Lewthwaite, 28, has been on the run in East Africa for six months since police foiled a plot to blow up Western tourist targets in the Kenyan city of Mombasa.
The Mail has revealed how the mother-of-three is the prime suspect for a grenade attack last week in a Kenyan bar, which left three dead.
The blog, Fears And Tears: Confessions of A Female Mujahid, warns of how ‘fear can make you do many things’ and how there will be ‘many more challenges’ in the months ahead.
Security sources believe it to be the work of soldier’s daughter Lewthwaite and that it is her first contact with the outside world since she fled to Africa with her three young children.
The rambling message, posted three days before the grenade attack, was left on the website of Islamic militant group Muslim Youth Centre, which is protecting Lewthwaite. It is the Kenyan arm of Somali terror group Al-Shabaab.
On the day of the blast, a message was posted on the site saying: ‘BOOM!!! Mujahideen making music.’
