Nine terror suspects plotted a Christmas bomb blitz in London, a court has heard.
Potential targets included two rabbis and and Mayor Boris Johnson, it was claimed.
Some of the men are of Bangladeshi origin. After the arrests on December 20, searches at one of the addresses uncovered a handwritten note containing the contact details of six individuals. It had the full addresses of two rabbis and their synagogues.

The nine suspects: Mohammed Moksudur Rahman Chowdhury, 20; Shah Mohammed Lutfar Rahman, 28; Gurukanth Desai, 28; Omar Sharif Latif, 26; Abdul Malik Miah, 24; Nazam Hussain, 25; Usman Khan, 19; Mohibur Rahman, 26; Abul Bosher Mohammed Shahjahan, 26.

Any bets on which British University they attended at taxpayers' expense?

Bedfordshire? East London? UCL? SOAS?

Wait for this:

The vice chancellor of the university he attended said "we are shocked that [xx] could do such a thing, he always seemed so quiet and studious and came from such a good family, they never wanted for money. We are sure that this is not typical and we will not compromise on our commitment to free speech: it is vital for our students to be exposed to differeing points of view

From the Guardian:

Police are believed to have found issues of the al-Qaeda extremist magazine Inspire during searches. One article was entitled "How to make a pipe bomb in the kitchen of your mom", others included "What to expect in jihad" and "Tips for our brothers in the US". Police also found extremist literature intended to help people "serve and participate in jihad". Anwar Al-Awlaki, the Yemeni preacher whose teachings champion violent jihad against the west, is alleged to be the inspiration for the plot, the court heard.

Well done MI5 & MI6.

Anyone fancy a drive through Luton? You might as well be driving through Kabul.

There will be more of these plots in the coming months and the security services have their work cut out.

Antisemitism has become so mainstream in some parts of UK that one cannot even figure it out for what it is. Hence the students look so nice, quiet boys... To anyone with a brain, their hate would appear clearly, though.

Malcolm Grant is a comprehensive tosser, a classic example of a chinless twat who got his job through pull and not talent. I am ashamed to be a past student of UCL.

Jon: parts of B'ham too, and of course Bradford.

This country (or at least the ones in power) has decided to commit national suicide. We are halfway there. Talk about fiddling while Rome burns.
