Files found on the ‘White Widow’s’ laptop include a 34-line ‘Ode to Osama’ in which she tells of her love for Osama bin Laden and describes him as ‘my father, my brother’.
The photos and poem were among 2,000 files recovered from a computer and flash drive Samantha Lewthwaite tried to destroy before she ﬂed police who were hunting her in Kenya’s coastal city of Mombasa in December 2011.
She has been named as the al-Shabaab extremist who plotted the Kenyan mall attack, which killed more than 70 innocent civilians.
Lewthwaite – who was married to the July 7 bomber Germaine Lindsay – is in hiding after Interpol issued a ‘red notice’ alert for her capture shortly after the Westgate shopping mall massacre in Nairobi, Kenya, last month.
It is thought that the 29-year-old soldier’s daughter from Aylesbury is being harboured by al-Shabaab, the Somali terrorists who carried out the slaughter which killed dozens of innocent civilians.
Among them are photos which show her with her four children and internet searches for fitness programmes.
According to the ﬁles, Lewthwaite used the alias Natalie Faye Webb, a name on a fake South African passport, to rent an apartment near The Junction mall in Nairobi, a shopping centre similar to Westgate and popular with expats and middle class Kenyans.
It may have been another potential terror target, British and Kenyan intelligence believe.
She penned the poem to Osama bin Laden shortly after he was killed by US special forces during a daring raid at his Pakistan safe house in May 2011.
‘Oh sheik Osama my father, my brother, my love for you is like no other,’ reads the ode.
Part of it continues: ‘Oh Sheik Osama now that you are gone, the Muslims must wake up they must be strong.
‘Us we are left to continue what you started. To seek the victory until we are martyred.’
A chilling diary penned by the fanatic shows how she attempted to groom her innocent children into becoming ‘Islamic holy warriors’.
The world’s most wanted woman wrote about how she was proud that her children wanted to be mujahids – those who declare jihad against ‘unbelievers’ – after she and her late husband would talk to the children about holy wars.
Over nine scrawled pages she writes out her plot to murder disbelievers and incite others – including her four children – to do the same.
The crumpled A4 manuscript was found in a Kenyan safe house in which she and fellow Islamic extremists were planning an attack on two hotels and a shopping centre.
The diary shows she is grooming them to follow in the footsteps of their father, 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay.
ODE TO OSAMA: WHITE WIDOW’S POEM PRAISING 9/11 KILLER
‘Oh sheik Osama my father, my brother, my love for you is like no other.
‘Oh Sheik Osama now that you are gone, the Muslims must wake up they must be strong.
‘Us we are left to continue what you started. To seek the victory until we are martyred.
‘To instill [sic] terror into kuffar [non-Muslims]. Your life an example of how we should be
‘Oh Muslims listen to our beloved sheik’s words, let not his struggle and efforts go unheard.
‘Revive what he started and strive to success, and maybe we can be raised with the best.
The poem ends with a warning to US President Barack Obama and the West that the jihad will continue despite the demise of the al-Qaeda leader.
‘As for our enemies our words will be less. You picked the wrong army to contest.
‘Al-Qaeda are stronger and fiercer than ever. Their [sic] was not victory for you Mr Obama.
‘The honour is his on martyred Osama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’
