Not even Ron-Paulians or Glenn-Beckites. Islamic jihadists again, oddly enough.
“German cell planned September 11 anniversary attacks,” from Expatica, April 30 (thanks to Sr. Soph):
Duesseldorf — Four suspected Islamic militants on trial for plotting to kill Americans in Germany discussed carrying out bombings on the sixth anniversary of 9/11, police said Wednesday.
Giving evidence in court a week into the trial, the chief police investigator Ralph K. said the three Germans and a Turk were overheard by police discussing September 11, 2007 as a possible date for an attack.
They were also issued with emailed orders “to finish the job” by leaders of the Islamic Jihadic Union in Pakistan, an extremist group linked to Al-Qaeda, shortly before police captured three of them on September 4, 2007, he said.
And just one day before their arrest, when police caught them with enough equipment to make explosives 100 times more powerful than those used in the 2005 London bombings, the leaders told them to act within three weeks, he said.
Two of the suspects, Fritz Gelowicz and Daniel Schneider, are German converts to Islam, while Attila Selek — arrested later in Turkey — is a German of Turkish origin. The fourth is Adem Yilmaz, a Turkish national….
Gelowicz and Schneider are German converts to Islam? But — but — I thought this was a racial issue, and resistance to jihad was just racism!
