Man admits terror plans charges
I realy struggle to beleive this sort of thing.

Quote:Man admits terror plans charges

A man has become the first person to be convicted under laws against planning terrorist acts after pleading guilty. Sohail Qureshi, 30, planned to travel from Heathrow Airport with cash, a night-sight, two metal batons and a computer hard drive, prosecutors said.

He was arrested in 2006 at the airport as he prepared to leave for Pakistan.

Qureshi, of east London, also admitted at the Old Bailey possessing articles for terrorist purposes and articles likely to be useful to a terrorist.

'Revenge' message

Prosecutor Jonathan Sharp told the court Qureshi had planned a "two to three-week operation" in either Pakistan, Afghanistan or Pakistan's Waziristan region after he landed in Islamabad.

Mr Sharp added: "Sohail Qureshi is a dedicated supporter of Islamist extremism."

Internet traffic intercepted by police - which was presented to the court - revealed that Qureshi had written: "Pray that I kill many, brother. Revenge, revenge, revenge."

The court had also been told that he intended to take two sleeping bags, two rucksacks, medical supplies and CD-Roms on board the flight in October 2006.

He had been followed airside at Heathrow by counter-terrorism officers who found him carrying £9,000 in cash.

Qureshi admitted preparing for terrorism under Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006, and now faces sentencing.

You can never tell he may well have been fitted up but then, if they wanted to silence him for something, they could have just taken him to docklands. On the surface, it just looks like he wanted go and do whatever and got sussed out.

i dont know im sure the arabs have done terrible things in the past but im not too sure about blaming them for attacks of terrorism.

the main ones that im aware of were all done by some sort of goverment intelligence imo. i want to get arrested for terrorism, i want to mess up their perfect ideal of an enemy. msm would probaly not even hear about me though, i would just be some random guy arrested under the terrorism laws.

if you notice that the pages are different, the heading has changed.

see this is a great reason why it would be beneficial to actually post the entire article with date, so if they make any changes or pull it, we still have it. yes although pictures dont go through, the link is still there... well might be.
