Christmas Plot to Blow up Big Ben and London Stock Exchange

Westminster Palace (Houses of Parliament) and Big Ben
The nine Religion of Peacers who were arrested in the UK five days before Christmas for plotting terrorism were charged yesterday.

From the UK Telegraph:
Details of the alleged plot were outlined at City of Westminster magistrates’ court.
The defendants, aged 19 to 28, were charged on Sunday with conspiracy to cause an explosion and conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism, having been arrested during early-morning raids in Cardiff, London and Stoke-on-Trent on Dec 20.
The group allegedly carried out a "reconnaissance trip" as they considered which UK landmarks to bomb. Among the sites under consideration were Westminster Abbey, Westminster Palace (home of Parliament), Big Ben, the London Stock Exchange, the London Eye, the Mayor's office, the U.S. Embassy, and the Church of Scientology near Blackfriars.

After their "reconnaissance trip," the group stopped at a McDonalds.
The London Eye
Police searches are said to have uncovered two issues of the al Qaeda extremist magazine Inspire, which is published in English in Yemen and is aimed at a Western audience. An article in issue one was entitled “How to make a pipe bomb in the kitchen of your mom”, while issue two included “What to expect in jihad” and “Tips for our brothers in the US”.

Other allegedly extremist material found was entitled 39 Ways which said it was intended to help people “serve and participate in jihad”.
The inspiration for the plot allegedly is Anwar Al-Awlaki, the dual Yemeni/U.S. citizen who preaches violent jihad against the West.
Between Oct 1 and Dec 20, the men are alleged to have downloaded information from the internet, discussed acts of terrorism and tested explosives while “unlawfully and maliciously” conspiring to “endanger life or cause serious injury” with one or more explosions.

The defendants are: Mohammed Chowdhury, 20; Shah Rahman, 28; Omar Latif, 26; Abdul Miah, 24; Gurukanth Desai, 28; Usman Khan, 19; Nazam Hussain, 25; Mohibur Rahman, 26; and Abul Shahjahan, 26. All nine men are of Bangladeshi origin.

The nine are due to appear in court again on Jan 14.


  1. Dang, I hadn't seen the details of the plot until now. Whoa. The terrorists were going to make their attack on Britain, like 9/11. These Muslim terrorists must not be tolerated, not be negotiated with, but in fact must be incarcerated, converted to different religion, or eliminated.

  2. @Teresa - Yes indeed. These wackos wanted to hit the stock market, the legislature, and the clock tower. Thank God they were stopped.

  3. I think that western nations need to seriously consider ending Islamic immigration.

  4. @Trestin - Absolutely. It is one thing to welcome into your home--and offer the benefits of your hospitality to--guests who like and respect you and who wish to share in your family's customs. It is quite another to invite into your home people who dislike you, think you are a lower form of life, demand that you change your customs and habits to suit them, are generally indifferent to whether you live or die, and include among themselves people actively trying to murder you and your family. That is insanity!

  5. this will go from bad to horrific if the libs have their way my friend...good Lord.

  6. they look exactly like the so called 'Moderate muslims' that are always complaining that we English non Muslims dont 'understand' Islam and that it's a religion of peace.

    how can we differentiate between them.

  7. @Woman -

    Our guys are doing a pretty good job of heading these terrorists off at the pass, aided, no doubt, by the apparent lack of genius on the part of the terrorists they have rounded up.

    We have got to do better than play defensive, though. Too many lives and too much precious treasure and history is at stake.

  8. @Beauty: I got sick of the "we don't understand them" complaint the first time I heard it, and I've heard it countless times since then. How about people moving into our culture learn to understand us?

    I don't think it's our job to differentiate. We have enough work to do.
