Yet another convert to Islam somehow gets the idea that his new religion commands him to commit treason and mass murder. Authorities everywhere remain resolutely incurious about this recurring phenomenon. British authorities should be investigating how and why Ludlow fell in with Choudary. But they won’t be.

“‘I spit at this country’: British Muslim convert was on anti-terror course when he scoped out Oxford Street and Madame Tussauds for attacks after going to Anjem Choudary rallies,” by Richard Spillett and Duncan Gardham, Mailonline, January 4, 2019:

A British-born Muslim convert said ‘I spit at Britain’ in an ISIS allegiance video as he plotted to slaughter shoppers in a ‘ram attack’ outside Oxford Street’s Disney store.

Lewis Ludlow, a former Royal Mail worker from the upmarket Kent town of Rochester, became radicalised after converting to Islam and attending the poppy-burning rallies of hate preacher Anjem Choudary.

The 27-year-old then tried to join a new ISIS group in the Philippines, but was stopped from travelling and so began hatching plans for an attack in London.

He plotted a vehicle attack on Oxford Street or Madame Tussauds while, at the same time, meeting officials from the deradicalisation programme Prevent.

The convert had been offered three different courses of deradicalisation since he first came to the group’s attention in 2008, but repeatedly failed to show up.

Investigators then found a torn-up letter setting out his vehicle attack plot, and a video in which he said: ‘I pledge allegiance to Islamic State and it’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi… I want nothing from Britain and I spit at this country.’

An investigation revealed he was preparing to drive a van into shoppers on Oxford Street or near tourist hotspot Madame Tussauds.

Prosecutor Mark Dawson told an earlier hearing: ‘This was a plot to cause mass fatalities using a vehicle in Oxford Street targeting among other places the Disney store or pedestrians in and around Oxford Street at its busiest times.
