Meanwhile the media continue to defend jihad-waging Muslims and attempt to falsely vilify those who try to defend their own country. via BBC News – English Defence League rally bomb plotters jailed.
Six men from the West Midlands have been jailed for up to 19-and-a-half years each for planning to bomb an English Defence League rally.
Omar Khan, Jewel Uddin, Mohammed Hasseen, Mohammed Saud, Zohaib Ahmed and Anzal Hussain had all admitted terrorism offences in April.
Five of them had taken a bomb, knives and sawn-off shotguns to last June’s rally in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.
But the plotters arrived two hours after the EDL event had ended.
The men, who all lived in or near Birmingham, were caught by chance after a car being used by two of them, and carrying weapons, was stopped by police on the M1 after the rally and found to have no insurance.
The “men” were all Muslims waging jihad in the name of Allah. But the BBC can’t bring itself to mention that. There is no difference between these guys and the Muslim who beheaded the British soldier in broad daylight.
At the Old Bailey, Khan, Uddin and Ahmed were sentenced to 19-and-a-half years in jail, with a five-year extension on licence.
Hasseen, Hussain and Saud were jailed for 18 years and nine months, with a five-year extension on licence.
Extended sentences, introduced in England and Wales last year, mean offenders serve at least two-thirds of their main sentence in custody. After release, they are on licence in the community for the rest of their sentence plus the extension part.
Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale said the men had planned “a horrendous attack”.
The six defendants received a reduction of a quarter in their jail terms for pleading guilty before a trial had been due to start.
Sentencing the men, Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC said their device – an 18in nail bomb using explosives from fireworks and stuffed with shrapnel – had been a “horrible weapon” that would have caused serious if not fatal injuries.
He said it had not been an amateurish attempt but wide-ranging and determined.
As well as targeting EDL supporters, police officers and members of the public could have been caught up in the attack, the court heard.
The judge said had the attack succeeded, it could have sparked “a spiral of tit-for-tat violence”.
Judges like this are part of the problem in the U.K.
