As a convert to Islam, Jamaican-born Lindsey Germaine began using the name Jamal. He's also used Lindsey Germail, Lindsey Jermaine and Lindsey Jamal.
From Life Style Extra:
Some reports suggest that Germaine may have been on an FBI terrorist watch list as Germaine Lindsey when he travelled to Cleveland in 2000.
Police raided the house he rented in Northern Road, Aylesbury where he lived with his wife Samantha Lewthwaite, 21, also an Islamic convert, and their 15-month-old son, Abdullah. Samantha, who is eight months pregnant is said to be under police guard as she prepares to give birth.
The pair met in Luton, where Miss Lewthwaite was studying, but she quit her course and moved in with Germaine and is thought to have changed her name to Sheraflyah when she took up the Muslim faith.
There's currently no confirmation that Germaine was actually on a terror watch list. If he was listed, it would be nice to know the reason. It would also be nice to know why he traveled to Cleveland, especially since it's in my neighborhood
. If Germaine was firing up anyone locally, I would like to know.
Lastly, it's hard to conceive of the infectious evil that permeated Germaine. He was young, had a baby son, and a pregnant wife and he gives it all up and becomes a bomb to indiscriminately kill and maim innocent people.
