Jailed racist in Islam ploy
A cross-dressing Nazi racist has converted to Islam in jail because he's terrified of being killed in a revenge attack.
Hitler fanatic Martyn Gilleard, 31, was caged for 16 years last month for possessing 39,000 sick child porn images - and making four nail bombs. The pervert, who kept pictures of himself in women's underwear, planned to target mosques or places where black and Asian people gathered.
But now he has seen an imam at Wakefield Prison in West Yorkshire and says he has become a Muslim.
A prison source said: "Gilleard was kicked into touch by far-right parties for having child porn. Without their backing, he knew he wouldn't last five minutes in prison. So he reckoned changing his religion was the only way he'd avoid reprisals inside.
"But Gilleard turning to Islam is laughable. Just a few months ago he was a fully paid-up member of various racist groups and now he wants to start reading the Koran. He's making a mockery of Muslims and the lads will not stand for it."
Fork-lift truck driver Gilleard, of Goole, East Yorks, admitted at Leeds Crown Court 10 specimen child porn charges and was convicted of two terror charges.
