Zacarias Moussaoui Stuns the Court
"Al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui testified today that he and would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid were supposed to hijack a fifth airplane on September 11th, 2001, and fly it into the White House." Reported by News Channel 3 in the Hampton Roads.
Just when much of what the prosecution saw their case being boxed in by decisions of the Judge. Zacarias Moussaoui made the most damning statement against himself. Shocking the court room with this blatant admission.
This from AP reporting on further court statements:
"You lied because you wanted to conceal that you were a member of al-Qaida?" prosecutor Rob Spencer asked.
"That's correct," Moussaoui said.
Spencer: "You lied so the plan could go forward?"
Moussaoui: "That's correct."
Previously, Zacarias Moussaoui had said that he had involvement with the 9-11 attack on the Twin Towers. Apparently, Washington DC is another matter entirely.
In related thought, I was reading WSET's "Local Converts Speak About Islam And Christianity," and explored Dean Ergun Caner of the LU Theological Seminary a little further.
Dean Ergun Caner was a Muslim who converted to Christianity and was disowned by his father and beaten by others in his Mosque in Ohio for his conversion. It was interesting to find these statement by him:
"I have heard it over and over, as have you, 'How can they do this? Islam is just a religion of peace.' We are taught jihad from our youth. We are taught jihad in the hadith and the Koran from our youth. As a matter of fact, I am under the sentence of death, as is any Muslim who finds Christ, because the Koran says and the hadith teaches that anyone who changes his Islamic religion must be killed."
"Islam at its core is a religion of warfare. Muhammad was a warrior. We are taught to conquer. We are taught to fight. If anyone says in the media that Islam is a religion of peace, they either don't know their faith, don’t know the Koran, or they are lying. "
