Man Admits Plot to Behead Soldier

Having seen, by accident, a vid of the beheading of a western hostage this is a truly horrific plot. I was traumatised after watching the vid for about 2 days. It was truly horrible and not something I would want to see again. Courtsesy of BBC online:

A 37-year-old Birmingham man has pleaded guilty to plotting to kidnap and kill a British soldier. Parviz Khan, an unemployed charity worker, intended to seize and behead the unnamed Muslim serviceman "like a pig", Leicester Crown Court was told.

Three other men, Basiru Gassama, 30, Mohammed Irfan, 31, and Hamid Elasmar, 44, have admitted other offences connected with Khan's plot.

The court heard Amjad Mahmood, 32, and Zahoor Iqbal, 30, denied involvement.

The jury was told how Khan, of Alum Rock, intended to kidnap the soldier while on a night out, behead him in a lock-up garage and then release footage of the killing on the internet.

Nigel Rumfitt QC, prosecuting Mr Mahmood and Mr Iqbal, who both deny two offences relating to the plot, told the court that Khan had planned to seize the serviceman in Birmingham's Broad Street entertainment quarter.

"He would be taken to a lock-up garage and there he would be murdered by having his head cut off like a pig," he said.

"This atrocity would be filmed... and the film released to cause panic and fear within the British armed forces and the wider public."

Khan, who also admits intending to supply equipment to terrorists on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, pleaded guilty to the plot earlier this month, but his plea can only now be reported as the trial of Mr Mahmood and Mr Iqbal has begun.

Mr Mahmood denies knowing about Khan's plot and failing to disclose information about it, while Mr Iqbal denies possessing a computer disc called Encyclopaedia Jihad, which would be likely to be useful to a terrorist.

Both men have also pleaded not guilty to helping Khan supply equipment to terrorists in Pakistan.

Irfan and Elasmar have pleaded guilty to helping Khan supply the equipment, while Gassama has admitted knowing about the plot and not telling anyone about it.

The men were arrested in a series of high-profile raids in Birmingham at the end of January last year after an investigation led by West Midlands Police Counter-Terrorism Unit.
Khan was later charged with plotting to kidnap and kill a member of the British armed forces between 2 April 2006 and 1 February 2007.

Even though they did not actually carry out this plot my belief is that they should go to prison for a very long time. One thing watching the vid did for me was confirm, as if it were needed, how evil these people are. If anyone wants confirmation let me know and I'll tell you where to find it.

Isn't it unbelievable that we have such savages in our midst? If ever there was proof that we are moving toward a 'New Dark Age', this is it.

Human sacrifice is an integral aspect of Islam, becuase Allah is Moloch, also known in various traditions as Satan, Mara, Lucifer, Beelzebub etc

"There was no liquid loved more by Allah "than the the liquid of blood".

"Whether you do it by the lamb, or you do it by a Serb, you do it by a Jew, you do it by any enemies of Allah," he said.

That drop of blood "is very dear."
