Members of a British Muslim terrorist cell discussed taking their wives and children on suicide missions to blow up transatlantic jets, a jury heard yesterday.
The ringleader, Abdulla Ahmed Ali, was bugged by police talking about whether to bring his baby son but said his wife “would not agree to it”.
Umar Islam, however, said his wife might join the plot if it were a “significant operation”.
……Six of the eight-strong gang each made “chilling” suicide videos expressing the desire to wreak “death and destruction” against the West and “Kuffar”, or non-believers.
……In his recording, 29-year-old Islam accused fellow Britons of being “too busy watching EastEnders” to care about the problems in the Middle East while Ali, 27, warned that their “body parts” would be “decorating the streets”.
……The defendants are all accused of plotting to blow up at least seven planes flying from Heathrow to cities in the U.S. and Canada by detonating bombs made from softdrink bottles.
If they had been successful, almost 2,000 passengers and crew would have been killed with countless more casualties if the airliners had come down over land.

How nice. The jihadist jackoff wanted to make the attacks a family affair.
Kudos to the great investigative work on the part of anti-terrorism units.
Hundreds of these types of plots are thwarted each year, but get very little publicity.
In America alone, there’s been 19 plots discovered and foiled since 11 September, 2001.
Peruse the name and religion of each of the perpetrators.
The next time the terrorist sockpuppets at CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) make accusations of “Islamophobia”, e-mail them the list and ask if there’s any Jews or Christians among the suspects.
Muslim=the common denominatior.
