Sami Osmakac toyed with the idea of blowing up the bridges crossing Tampa Bay or detonating bombs at the sheriff’s office and police departments before settling on a plan to plant explosives in Tampa’s Hyde Park party district and then spraying first responders with automatic gunfire, according to recently released court documents.

The planned January 2012 attack, Osmakac said in a “martyrdom video,” would be “payback for Sheikh Osama Bin Laden, may he rest in peace. ”

The plots are detailed in a 37-page report by a terrorism expert hired by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Tampa to help in its case against Osmakac, a self-described jihadist who said he was too radical even for Hamas and other fringe Muslim groups…

…The defense is arguing Osmakac was entrapped and that because of mental illness, he was susceptible to being influenced.

Kohlmann concludes in his report “that the defendant appears to fit many of the characteristics associated with the profile of a contemporary violent extremist, otherwise known as a ‘homegrown terrorist.’ ”

I don't think that believing in a supernatural being and following your religion as written qualifies as a mental illness.
I wonder if there are other extenuating circumstances for the defense to postulate a mental problem.

He sounds to me to be a fundamental Muslim expressing his views on other religions. -Tom

Islam is a disease.

God and America are the cure...

That is a tough one. As you are stating it, no it does not qualify as a defense in court. On the other hand, just as a general statement, Islam IS a mental disease. People must have something wrong in their head to join it.

The GOP is also infiltrated by them just like the Dhimmis are.

That defense won’t fly until/unless Islam is declared to be a mental illness instead of a religion.

Otherwise he looks like just another devout fellow jihadi.

'Every “moderate” Muslim is a potential terrorist. The belief in Islam is like a tank of gasoline. It looks innocuous, until it meets the fire. For a “moderate” Muslim to become a murderous jihadist, all it takes is a spark of faith.

It is time to put an end to the charade of “moderate Islam.” There is no such thing as moderate Muslim. Muslims are either jihadists or dormant jihadists – moderate, they are not.'

The Islam may have been secondary to the crazy, but that doesn’t make him any less dangerous.

Sami suffers from mental illness.

Islamofascism IS a mental disorder.
