7 Muslims Jailed For Plot To Bomb Wall Street

From those fans of terrorism at Reuters:

Britons jailed over al Qaeda plot to bomb NYSE

LONDON (Reuters) – Seven Britons linked to a plot to blow up U.S. financial institutions, including the New York Stock Exchange, and stage a series of attacks in Britain were jailed for a total of 136 years by a London court on Friday.

Prosecutors said the men were part of a group headed by senior al Qaeda operative Dhiren Barot and described as “one of the most dangerous and ambitious terrorist cells ever to operate in this country”.

Barot is currently serving a life jail term after admitting last year he had planned bomb attacks in Britain and the United States.

Six of the men, Mohammed Naveed Bhatti, Junade Feroze, Zia Ul Haq, Abdul Aziz Jalil, Nadeem Tarmohamed and Omar Abdur Rehman pleaded guilty to conspiring with Barot to cause explosions between 2001 and 2004.

The seventh, Qaisar Shaffi, was found guilty on Wednesday.

Barot, a Muslim convert, was considered by some U.S. officials to be either al Qaeda’s cell leader in Europe or at least the head of bin Laden’s organization in Britain…

Had their plans come to fruition, Barot’s trial judge said they would have caused “carnage and butchery … on a colossal and unprecedented scale”…

Funny how little we have heard from our watchdog media about this terror plot.

But it’s a certainty they are just some harmless pranksters, who are really “good boys” at heart.
