The Supreme Court of Canadian province British Columbia has acquited John Nuttal and Amanda Korody, a couple who converted to Islam and planned to plant an explosive device in parliament while entertaining the possibility of murdering Jewish children in a synagogue, of terrorism charges.

The judge ruled that the police had "entrapped" the couple, who were not capable of carrying out an actual attack, tricking them into preparing a bomb so they can be arrested and charged. "There are enough terrorists in the world. We don't need the police to help more people who've been marginalized if they're too incompetent to commit the terror attack by themselves," the judge wrote in her decision.

In videos the police submitted as evidence, the couple are seen telling the camera that Jihad is a religious obligation for every Muslim, and calling for Muslims to fight infidels with every means available. They declared allegiance to Al-Qaeda and its founder, Osama Bin Laden.

Court documents also show that while talking to a secret agent who presented himself as a fellow Jihadi, the couple discussed the possibility of breaking into a synagogue to murder Jewish children, explaining that these would be mercy killings, as the children would spend eternity in hell if the grew up as Jews, but will go to heaven if they died as children.
