Lonely Islamic Terrorist Plane Bomber Wanted to Study Sharia in Yemen, active on Facebook

Islamic terrorist scum
This just in, from Reuters:
A Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a U.S. airliner told his parents he wanted to study Islamic sharia law in Yemen shortly before cutting off contact with them, the Nigerian government said on Tuesday.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, had been studying for a masters degree in Dubai when he told his parents he was going to Yemen to study Arabic for a few weeks, Nigerian Information Minister Dora Akunyili told reporters in the capital Abuja.

...Abdulmutallab has been charged with trying to blow up a Delta Airlines plane as it approached Detroit on a flight from Amsterdam with almost 300 people on board.

A regional wing of al Qaeda said it was behind the failed Christmas Day bombing, which was meant to avenge U.S. attacks on the group in Yemen, according to a web statement.

Akunyili said Abdulmutallab continued communicating with his family after going to Yemen but when he saw his parents were vehemently opposed to his remaining there, he cut communication.

"The parents got very worried and it came to a break when he sent a text message that he did not want to communicate with them any more," Akunyili said.

"They tried everything to go to Yemen and bring him back, and when they failed, they reported him to the security agencies. The reason for that report was to help bring back the child to Nigeria," she said.
 Proving that poverty breeds Islamic terrorism....:  
The son of a respected banker, Abdulmutallab is from a privileged background....

Abdulmutallab's Internet postings on Facebook and Islamist chatrooms while he was at school in Togo and at university show a lonely youth struggling between extreme Islamic views and liberalism, according to the Washington Post.

..Posting under the name Farouk1986, he wrote of Arabic language studies in Yemen and plans to apply to Stanford and other leading U.S. universities as well as feelings of depression and loneliness, the newspaper said.
Poor fella.  Obviously his loneliness and poverty caused him to want to blow up a plane full of innocent people.  Or maybe he found comfort among the wide variety of jihadist material found all over Facebook (despite their Terms of Service against such activity, which Facebook does not fully enforce...)
