Summary: 

The probation officer was almost certainly a non-Muslim. Mainstream analysts routinely wave away statements such as this one from jihadis: they are the “extremist” point of view, having nothing to do with genuine Islam, and if you take notice of what these “extremists” are saying about Islam then you’re “validating” their “extremist” view. This is as ridiculous as it is self-defeating. Noting the jihadis’ motivating ideology is not to agree with it, and to dismiss it as irrelevant because it is supposedly a “hijacking” on Islam is to retreat into willful ignorance and pass up the chance to understand the enemy and devise ways to meet the challenge he presents more effectively.
