Shockingly Sad! Adebowale and Adebolajo, two British born Nigerian Christians radicalised by UK Muslim teachings behead Soldier

'The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?' Jeremiah 17:9

On Wednesday 23rd of May 2013, with utter horror on our faces we watched on UK National TV a young black man with blood on his hands carrying a meat cleaver from  freshly beheading 25 year old Lee Rigby. British Soldier who we see lying across the road, whom they had first ran over with a car, dragged him out onto the street, then come lazily to the camera ranting as if to justify his actions

"We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” 
“I apologize that women have had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you.” 

Who exactly are these two twenty-something young black men, 22 year old Michael Adebowale and 28 year old Michael Adebolajo. Two undergrads who became friends at Greenwich University. London. Both were born and raised in Christian homes before they converted to Muslims both in their teens. They became radicalised and delusional with Jihadist violent messages.
One of the boys parents were so concerned about their sons new Islamic life and radical views that they moved the family to Woolwich to be far away from the highly Islamic populated area of east London.
Their Parents, one has a father who is a nurse and the other a mother who is a probation officer. Today they have brought their family and the total Nigerian Community in UK to shame. Having been arrested they will spend the rest of their lives in jail as a Jihad terrorist. 
Question is: How could these two sweet kids raised in a Godly home become today's demonized evil killers?  What kind of organisation or religion could have brainwashed them so much they became cold blooded killers in broad daylight.  A terrible reminder of the 2009 air plane bomber Farouk Abdul Mutallab who came from a decent wealthy background only to become delusional after attending extremist jihadist meetings also here in the city of London.
Simply put London has now become an Islamic extremist breeding ground, where they prey on young minds who have time on their hands, lonely, isolated kids who are disillusioned about Society and what it has to offer. These manipulative, oppressive goups hungrey for recognition by causing fear and chaos in the society prey on these young people.
What can be learnt from this: 
  • This could happen to any family, not neccesary from a broken home as we see in this case
  • The need to understand our youth culture 
  • The need to have a tigher community, so we can bear each others burden and share experiences
Our prayers go out to the family of the English Soldier Lee Rigby and both Michaels families
