    Muslim couple found guilty of planning London terror attack

    Muslim couple found guilty of planning London terror attack



    By AFP
    Published: December 29, 2015

    LONDON: A British court on Tuesday convicted a husband and wife of planning a major terror attack to mark the 10th anniversary of the London suicide bombings this year.
    Mohammed Rehman, 25, used the Twitter name “Silent Bomber” and asked users whether he should bomb a shopping centre or the London Underground train network.

    Rehman used as his profile picture an image of the Islamic State (IS) group militant known as “Jihadi John”, believed killed earlier this year, and was said by prosecutors to have had a “keen interest” in IS.
    He was arrested in May after posting a tweet saying: “Westfield shopping centre or London underground? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.”
    That was accompanied by a link to an al Qaeda press release about the July 2005 bombings in which four suicide bombers targeted London’s transport system. Fifty-two people were killed.
    The couple were accused of planning their attack around May 28.
    Rehman and his wife Sana Ahmed Khan were found guilty by a jury at the Old Bailey in London, England’s central criminal court.
    Police also seized more than 10 kilogrammes (22 pounds) of urea nitrate, which can be used to manufacture a large bomb, from their house and he filmed himself testing explosives in their back garden.
    “The manufacture of a detonator would have taken no more than a couple of days and could have been done by him much quicker if he chose to,” prosecutor Tony Badenoch told the court.

    While Rehman was responsible for creating the bomb, his wife funded his exploits and bought the chemicals, the Crown Prosecution Service said.
    If detonated on the London Underground, the bomb they were preparing “would have caused multiple fatalities,” said the CPS.
    “The intention to carry out some form of terrorism attack was clear,” Susan Hemming, head of the CPS counter terrorism division, said following the verdict.
    “The pair had been very close to carrying out an attack. All they required was to purchase the chemicals to make a detonator.
    “There is little doubt that, had Rehman and Ahmed Khan not been stopped when they were, they would have attempted to carry out an act of terrorism in London.”
    The couple will be sentenced on Wednesday or Thursday, following mitigation hearings.

    I heard the guy's mother talking to the beeb today. She sounded completely lost, asking how can a mother hate her own son as that's how she feels, his father was on too wondering if his son got corrupted by something he read on the webs or what.

    It was a sad thing, they sounded so completely normal and totally unequipped to come to terms with the situation and the realisation that they're going to be known as the parents of 'that guy' for the rest of their lives.

    Really, son brought up on on western values and culture, suddenly wants to kill infidels, shit the net could convince millions of young Christians, atheists, Buddhists, to kill infidels.

    The seed of violence was planted by the parents, kids can go bad, drugs and crime, but taking up killing innocent people for a religious cause needs a bit more then the internet.

    Using the same logic your parents must have been as dumb as a sack of spanners.

    I can see how the seeds of discontent with the British society were planted by his parents, just look at the way some expats here talk about their host nations and the parallels are easy to see, totally different situations I know but there are institutions in the uk picking up on the disillusioned and discontent with a view to radicalising them. It didn't necessarily go down that way but it's possible.
    It wasn't me!

    Did that sound good in your head before the voices told you to post it?

    It's not to hard to figure out what muslim families are realy thinking behind closed doors according to this article .



    > The fact that mass demonstrations occurred throughout the Muslim world after the Danish Muhammad cartoon incident, but not after any of the dozens of large-scale terror attacks, likewise is an indirect indication of what is approved of and what is not. Even the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation of 57 member states) refused to condemn terrorism, labeling it as “acts of resistance” in the aftermath of 9/11 and ever since.
    Nor is the mass support of terrorism confined to Islamic nations; there were no visible Muslim participants in the solidarity marches in France after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, nor have the European Muslim communities who had organized so many anti-American demonstrations before both the Afghanistan and Iraq invasions, managed even a single march to condemn any of the mass killings in the name of their religion. <
