A woman found guilty of attempting to mastermind a terrorist attack against a Canadian legislature wanted to infiltrate a synagogue and kill Jewish children she believed were fated for “eternal hell,” the Canadian Press reported on Tuesday.

Amanda Korody’s husband John Nuttall reportedly told undercover agents that his wife believed the couple would be able to pass off as Jews because of their “white” skin, enter a synagogue and gain access to “small Jews.”

“They will be regulars in the synagogue. They will gain the trust of everybody. And once they have everything they will get enough guns and ammo to go ahead with their mission,” read the notes from the months-long sting operation.

Korody, who like her husband was a self-described convert to Islam, believed that adult Jews were destined for damnation because they would be educated to hate Arabs and Muslims, though she admitted they may still convert to become Muslims in adulthood.
