The chilling final audio call from the British gunman who took four people hostage at a Texas synagogue revealed the terrorist told his brother: “I’m coming home in a body bag”.

Malik Faisal Akram, 44, was shot dead by an FBI SWAT team 10 hours after the clash began, and the four hostages were freed safe and sound.

In the expletive-laden phone call, published by the Jewish Chronicle, he made a number of anti-Semitic threats and remarks and claimed to have ‘promised’ to his younger brother – who is believed to have died of COVID-19 a while ago. three months – that he “would shoot down a martyr”.

His brother, Gulbar Akram, spoke to him from a police station in Blackburn and tried to persuade him to turn himself in, but Malik Akram told him, “Don’t cry at my funeral. Because guess what, I came to die G, okay?”

Gulbar later told Sky News Malik Akram was on the phone with his two teenagers when he was killed.

Malik Akram spoke out against American conflicts abroad and said, “I’m setting a precedent.”

His actions, he said, would be “[open] the gates for every youngster in England to come to America and fuck with them”.

When Gulbar Akram urged himself to end the siege and turn himself in to the police, Akram said he “has been praying to Allah for two years for this”.

“I would rather live one day as a lion than 100 years as a jackal,” he added.

“I will go along with [police] and they can shoot me…I’m going home in a body bag.”
