In a surprise twist, some reports indicate that Taimour Abdulwahab Al-Abdaly was radicalized by his wife, despite her protestation that she had no idea her husband had turned to jihad. Al-Abdaly’s jihad group, a branch of Al Qaeda, says it plans to target Ikea and Volvo to punish Sweden for its many offenses against Islam.
