#1 note that he memorized the Koran at age 13 then studied arabic
thus he probably had no idea of what he was saying until his arabic improved a lot
with his intelligence he then had several choices
- pretend that the koran doesn't say what it says
- become an islamic apologist and tell the infidel what they want to hear (its getting crowded in that space)
- become an apostate - that could get you killed
- become a terrorist

#2 It's quite extraordinary how many walking angels turn into terrorists. Remarkable, really.
However, it's not extraordinary how many devout Muslims turn into terrorists. Not remarkable at all, really.

Terrorist freed early after turning supergrass
A convicted Islamic terrorist who was the accomplice of shoe bomber Richard Reid has been freed from prison after becoming Britain's first al-Qaeda supergrass.
Saajid Muhammad Badat, 33 from Gloucester, was jailed for 13 years in 2005 but had his sentence cut down to 11 years after providing information on up to 18 terror plots over a six-year period.
The deal with police and Crown Prosecution Service has been kept secret for more than two years to protect his safety. It means the convicted terrorist has been on the streets since March 2010 without the public being told.
Badat's release was only disclosed because his evidence at a US trial that began yesterday about a plot to carry out a 7/7-style attack on the New York subway is to be made public.
