Failed Islamic shoe bomber Richard Reid has told his British relatives he hopes to be free from captivity soon

Daily Mail:

Richard Reid

Writing from an American jail cell where he is serving a 110-year sentence for trying to blow up a transatlantic airliner carrying 200 passengers, Reid also calls on his father to convert to Islam.

The 33-year-old from Bromley, southeast London, writes: "I had a couple of good dreams about my situation changing for the better in the not too distant future so this is a blessing from Allah.

"I place my trust in Allah that he will bring that into fruition and ask him to give me patience until the time when that occurs."

Reid, who was arrested in December 2001, is held in virtual solitary confinement at the maximum security ADX Florence in Colorado. The petty criminal converted to Islam while in Feltham young offenders institution.

In the letters Reid tells his father Robin, who is a recovering drug addict living in a homeless hostel, that his deceased aunt could not be in a "better place" because she was not a Muslim.

Reid added: "How's your situation in regards to upholding the daily prayers?

"Hopefully my advice was well received and if you didn't start praying yet, I'd ask you to re-read the two letters I wrote earlier this year on that subjectand to reflect on your situation with Allah.

"As long as we strive to follow the laws which he has laid down for us then everything which occurs in this life contains some good for us."

Hey Adam--

Hispanic woman uses granddaughter as lookout while she sells heroin. Plus, she's only 28 years older than the granddaughter. At this pace, she'll be a great-grandmother in only 3 years, at the age of 42.
