UK: 14-year-old boy converts to Islam, makes bombs containing shrapnel, plots jihad massacre
By Robert Spencer, June 19, 2020:
Where did this boy learn about Islam? Who taught him? What has been taught in his mosque? Why isn’t his mosque being investigated?
Here yet again we see a convert to Islam immediately get the idea that his new religion calls for violence against unbelievers. Authorities remain wholly uninterested in investigating this recurring phenomenon.

“Muslim convert, 14, ‘made bombs containing shrapnel and recorded a martyrdom video,’” by Jack Wright, Mailonline, June 18, 2020:
A 14-year-old boy charged under the Terrorism Act allegedly made bombs in his bedroom to become an Islamic ‘martyr’, a court heard today.

The youngster appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court wearing a face mask and grey tracksuit, supported by his mother, who sat in front of the dock.
He spoke to confirm his name, date of birth and age today, before indicating a not guilty plea when the charge was put to him.
The boy faces a single charge which says that on or before June 12 he engaged in conduct in preparation for giving effect to his intention to commit acts of terrorism.
Prosecutors allege he researched, prepared and made a series of devices with the aim of making homemade explosives containing shrapnel.
He is also accused of researching the making of bombs as well as filming bomb-making videos and a video of himself setting out his wish to become a martyr.
