So wrote Dhiren Barot, the British jihadist and convert to Islam who has just been sentenced to life in prison. Note that he planned this large-scale mayhem because he thought that this carnage and destruction would please Allah. Self-professed moderate Muslims in America, however, seem much more concerned about people like me who point out such things than they are about the prospect of many others like Dhiren Barot moving about freely in their mosques.
You may also be interested in downloading the pdf file of Barot’s book. You’ll see in it quotations from the Hadith in which the Muslim prophet Muhammad urges jihad against India. But of course the learned analysts will continue to dismiss Islamic loyalties and sensibilities as any part of the real motive for jihad terror.
“The British fanatic who plotted to kill thousands,” by Duncan Gardham in the Telegraph, with thanks to DFS:
A British al-Qa’eda fanatic plotted to murder thousands of innocent people on both sides of the Atlantic, a court heard yesterday.
The detailed plans presented to terrorist handlers by Muslim convert Dhiren Barot revealed his goal of striking at major buildings and railway stations with gas bombs in cars, detonating a radioactive dirty bomb and blowing up a train under the Thames in London.
Woolwich Crown Court heard that 34-year-old Barot had led a “sleeper cell” planning attacks in New York, Washington, London and across Britain.
In an encrypted document called Radioactive Children inside a file called Brad Pitt, the Londoner outlined plans for a dirty bomb in the capital.
Barot wrote that a radioactive device would “produce general panic, health consequences including immediate fatalities and long-term increases in cancer incidence, long-term denial of property use, disruption of services and property and facility decontamination needs”.
Among the targets considered were the New York Stock Exchange, IMF and World Bank in Washington and the headquarters of Citigroup and Prudential….
He drew up a list of central London hotels including the Savoy, Ritz, Dorchester, Metropole, Lanesborough, Berkeley, Hyatt Carlton Tower, InterContinental and Marriott Marble Arch.
Next to the Savoy he wrote: “Rear easy and enclosed but deserted except for laundry room etc.”
Another list appeared to be of railway stations Waterloo, Paddington and King’s Cross.
In a computer document found on a laptop in Pakistan, Barot had also suggested attacking Tube trains as they passed under the Thames.
“Imagine the chaos that would be caused if a powerful explosion were to rip through here and actually rupture the river itself,” he wrote. “That would cause pandemonium, what with the explosions, flooding, drowning etc that would occur.”…
Barot said he had a “friend who is a train driver” who would take people with him in his cab who were not railway staff. The same document told of plans to fill limousines with gas canisters and drive them into car parks beneath important buildings where they would be blown up. He called the document the Final Presentation for Gas Limos Project.
In it, Barot said his aim was “projects planned to be co-ordinated back to back, as they were with 9/11, thus forming another black day for the enemies of Islam and a victory for the Muslims”.
