“He said the text was ‘the polar opposite’ of his beliefs, could not explain why he sent it and apologised.”
Killing unbelievers is the polar opposite of his beliefs as a Muslim? Nearly every day, Islamic jihadis quote the Quran and tell us otherwise. Why do so many Muslims misunderstand Islam in exactly the same way?
“Former soldier sparks major terror alert with ‘killing unbelievers’ text,” by Sarah Bruce, Press and Journal, August 30, 2017:
A major terror alert was sparked when a former soldier and Muslim convert referred to killing “unbelievers” in a text message.
Alexander Tiffin, who had been to Saudi Arabia and Turkey earlier this year, sent disturbing text messages to a member of his mosque five days after the London Bridge attack in June.

Mr Urquhart explained that extensive police inquiries established no links to terrorist oranisations [sic], adding: “The conclusion has been that he was an idiot, not a terrorist.”…

Co-founder of the Inverness mosque Waheed Khan said last night: “He had a complex social, medical including mental health backgrounds and he had episodes of mood swings and highs and lows in his life….
