Samantha Lewthwaite went past the point-of-no-return some time ago. The convert to Islam and widow of Germaine Lindsay, she had been eight months pregnant with their second child when he killed 26 people on the Piccadilly line on 7 July 2005: an act which she said she abhorred.
It now looks as if either this was inaccurate, or she has had a change of heart. Following a foiled series of terror attacks on tourist sites and Roman Catholic churches in Mombasa during December 2011, she was identified as the main financier and linked to at least one of the conspirators under arrest: another British convert, named Jerome Grant.
Last Sunday, grenades were tossed into a Mombasa bar showing Euro-2012 matches, killing three and injuring many more (including one perpetrator now under arrest). Immediately afterwards, a woman in Islamic dress was seen emerging from the melee and making a quick exit; and presumed to be Lewthwaite.
Since then, blog entries on a Kenya-based web-forum affiliated with Al-Shabaab apparently from her have indicated a petulant, malevolent adolescent taking delight in her actions; with comments such as “Boom! Music for the Mujahadeen”.
Now, with British detectives being dispatched to Kenya to assist with the search, a series of grenade and gun attacks have killed at least 15 people in churches around Garissa towards the border with Somalia.

Britain appears to be exporting chav terrorists to Africa.
I should add that there is always room for doubt that this blog was written by her. The local police have also said that they are not looking for a female suspect in relation to the grenade attack. See the report here
