Muslim Convert Butchers Of UK Soldier Shout "Allahu Akbar" And Deny That Their Actions Were "A Betrayal Of Islam" At Sentencing

MIM: Note how Judge Sweeney morphs into Islamic theologian and tells the Muslim killers that their acts were " a betrayal of Islam" at which point Adebowale corrected the magistrate's misguided notion by screaming "That's a lie".
Lee Rigby murder: Adebolajo and Adebowale jailed
Michael Adebolajo has been given a whole-life term and Michael Adebowale has been jailed for a minimum of 45 years for murdering Fusilier Lee Rigby.
Adebolajo, 29, and Adebowale, 22, drove into Fusilier Rigby with a car before hacking him to death in Woolwich, south-east London, in May last year.
The judge, Mr Justice Sweeney, said Adebolajo's was one of those "rare cases" warranting a whole-life term.
The pair were absent during sentencing after a scuffle in the dock.
As Mr Justice Sweeney began to sentence the men they started shouting and scuffling with court security guards. They had to be forced to the ground and were removed from court.
Fusilier Rigby's family sobbed as Adebolajo shouted "allahu akbar", and Adebowale called out "that's a lie" as the judge told them their extremist views were "a betrayal of Islam"...
