Editorial note: The ‘hate’ peddled by the extremist underpinning of
Al Walaa wal Baraa is directed towards the ‘others’ or the so-called
‘kafirs’ by the the radical Islamists is on the rampage. All the

recordings, Nolen says he doesn’t “regret it at all” and that

was doing the right thing because of his delusional misinterpretations
of the Quran.

but Walkley declined to accept his plea. One of Nolen’s attorneys had
questioned whether his client was mentally competent to enter a guilty
