'White Widow' Samantha Lewthwaite pens poem celebrating late Osama bin Laden
Samantha Lewthwaite, elusive fugitive, dedicated fighter, mother and jihadist, has now revealed herself to be a poet. The “White Widow”, supposedly the terror of east Africa, wrote an ode to Osama bin Laden during her life on the run.
The verse is littered with misspellings and a cavalier attitude to grammar, but there can be no doubt about the strength of her adoration for the al-Qa’ida founder, bewailing his death and vowing revenge on unbelievers. “Oh sheik osama my father, my brother. My love for you is like no other. Oh Sheik Osama now that you are gone/ The muslims must wake up they must be strong,” she writes.
The 34 lines were found by police on a computer belonging to Lewthwaite along with a flash drive which showed she had spent eight years researching bomb-making.
Sky News, investigating Lewthwaite, who had been married to 7/7 suicide bomber Germaine Lindsay, unearthed evidence that she was present in Nairobi at the time of the attack by the Somali Islamist group al-Shabab. She had been living in a flat overlooking the Westgate mall where 67 died.
Lewthwaite had rented the apartment in the name of Nathalie Faye Webb, a South African national.
It has emerged that she had googled numerous dieting, fitness and workout sites as well as makeover demonstrations on having hair like the singer Taylor Swift.
Ode to Bin Laden
Oh sheik osama my father, my brother
My love for you is like no other
Oh Sheik Osama now that you are gone
The muslims must wake up they must be strong
I know that you are in a better place
That Allah has bestowed upon you grace.
Us we are left to continue what you started.
To seek the victory until we are martyred.
To instill terror into kuffar.
Until the world is governed by la illaha illala.
Oh sheik osama no this for true
My heart will not find peace until all muslims do.
Everything you had you gave for Allah
No surrender will take us all far.
Your life an example of how we should be.
Oh Muslims listen to our beloved sheik’s words
Let not his struggle and efforts go unheard
Revive what he started and strive to success
Then maybe we can be raised with the best.
Oh sheik Osama we are jealous of you to be of those who the promise is true
The promise is truth which is binding if only we knew
Verily Allah has purchased the lives of the believers that theirs shall be paradise.
They fight in Allahs cause, so they kill and are killed.
It is a promise binding on Allah in taurat, injill and Qur’an
And who is truer to his covenant than Allah?
As for our enemies our words will be less.
You picked the wrong army to contest.
Al Qaeda are stronger and fiercer than ever.
Thinking in the end you are stupid it will NEVER
Be over until the day that we see our lands returned and governed by He Allah the almighty, whose law is complete.
So make your plans and He is the best of planners.
Their was no victory for you Mr Obama, the honour is his on martyred Osama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
