Shoe-bomber Richard Reid goes on hunger strike

Muslim Richard Reid, failed mass murderer

Richard Reid continues to ply Islamic Jihad even from his jail cell. By complaining he is being prevented from following the tenets of Sunni Islam and going on a hunger strike he is now waging propaganda Jihad. Well, that's a good thing because his religion demands that he wage war against all non believers. Which is exactly why he is incarcerated. I don't know what he's complaining about, with the rest of his life in incarceration, he has plenty of time to pray to the god who commanded him to kill hundreds of innocents.

So now we can anticipate Muslims and infidel dhimmis and MSM to protest the awful conditions imposed on Reid as violations of his "human rights". His actions are unfortunately having their intended results of tying up the court system, garnering publicity and sympathy from useful dhimmis.

Once convicted, Islamic Jihadists need to be held in strict isolation to prevent them from corrupting other inmates and waging propaganda jihad in the media.

Hunger strike: Richard Reid had packed his shoes with explosives
Convicted 'shoe-bomber' Richard Reid, who was found guilty in 2003 of trying to blow up a transatlantic jetliner, is on hunger strike.
Court documents in the U.S. show that the London-born terrorist has been refusing food for several weeks and is being force-fed.
It is believed the hunger strike could be related to a lawsuit he has filed against prison officials.

Reid's lawsuit alleges prison authorities have repeatedly prevented him from following the tenets of his Sunni Muslim faith.
A U.S. District Court judge in Denver recently denied the authorities' request to throw out Reid's lawsuit.

Reid, 35, has refused food since March at the Supermax prison, the United States' highest-security federal lockup, 90 miles south of Denver, a federal government lawyer said in the court filings.
Traci Billingsley, spokesman at federal prison headquarters in Washington, D.C., said the bureau does not comment on inmates' conditions and would not say whether Reid's hunger strike is related

The government attorney, in a previously undisclosed court filing dated April 14, wrote that prison officials determined on April 7 'that medical intervention was necessary" and Reid was being force-fed and hydrated.
He had refused 58 meals by April 9, the attorney said in the documents.
In an update court filing, the government attorney wrote that Reid remains on the hunger strike and that prison officials continue to monitor his condition.
Reid was born in Bromley in 1973 and spent a number of years at Feltham young offenders' institute during his youth.

He was sentenced in 2003 in a US federal court in Boston for trying to ignite two bombs in his shoes on a Paris-to-Miami flight on American Airlines.
He was subdued by passengers before he could detonate the explosives.
The Supermax facility houses the most notorious federal inmates including Ramzi Yousef, convicted of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski.
