Three would-be suicide bombers who plotted to carry out an attack to rival the 7 July and 9/11 atrocities have been found guilty of terrorism charges.Absolutely repulsive. It's very lucky they were caught before they could cause any horror. But so long as dhimmitude and appeasement still reign in the British mindset, the danger will still be around.
Irfan Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Ashik Ali, 27, from Birmingham, were found guilty at Woolwich Crown Court of being "central figures" in the plan.
Jurors were told they planned to set off up to eight bombs in rucksacks, using timers to detonate the charges.
Police described the men as "committed, passionate extremists".
The trio were arrested in 2011 amid fears an attack was imminent.
Detectives believe it is the most significant terror plot to be uncovered since the 2006 conspiracy to blow up transatlantic airliners using bombs disguised as soft drinks.
Khalid even boasted that the attack was "another 9/11" and "revenge for everything".
Update: Tory Diary also makes clear that jihadists have not gone away, and even if a major terror attack hasn't occurred for 5 years in the UK, that doesn't mean the danger isn't still lurking around the corner.
