To the disappointment of the 72 virgins in paradise, unmartyred (and fortunately unsuccessful) Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad has been sentenced to life in prison.
Apparently missing the memo that said followers of Islam are mostly interested in building multi-ethnic recreation centers, Shahzad announced in court that Americans should "brace yourself" because "the war with Muslims has just begun."
Judge Miriam Cedarbaum, who administered the life sentence, told Shahzad that she hopes he will spend his prison time "thinking of whether the Quran wants you to kill people."
But considering the fact that the would-be terrorist frequently interrupted the sentencing by saying things like "Allah Akhbar" and "the defeat of the United States is imminent, inshallah," we're guessing that Shahzad has already given a lot of thought to his personal interpretation of the Quran.
