The irony is perhaps thicker than ever. As jihad attacks and attempted attacks in the U.S. increase, and jihad activity continues around the world, Islamic spokesmen ever more shrilly attempt to blame “Islamophobes” for linking jihad terrorism with Islam, apparently hoping that no one will notice how jihad terrorists themselves invoke the Koran and Sunnah to justify their actions.
“Chicagoan charged with aiding deadly Mumbai terror attack,” from the Chicago Breaking News Center, December 7 (thanks to Choi):
One of two Chicago men charged in a planned assault against a Danish newspaper has now been officially accused in last year’s terror attack in Mumbai, the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago announced today.
David Headley allegedly conducted extensive surveillance of targets in India for more than two years before the November 2008 attack that killed 170 people, prosecutors said.
Headley, who is cooperating with authorities, was named in a 12-count information with six counts of conspiracy related to the Mumbai attack, which targeted two hotels, a train station, a cafe and a Jewish community center. Sources have said Headley’s co-defendant in the newspaper case, Tahawwur Hussain Rana, is suspected to have paid for Headley’s India missions, but he was not charged Monday.
Headley was not expected to appear in court today, and no press conference was planned.
Headley and Rana were charged in October for their roles in planning to attack the Jyllands-Posten newspaper in Denmark over its publication of unflattering cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
Federal prosecutors said Headley attended terror training camps with the Lashkar-e-Taiba organization in Pakistan, which has been blamed for the India attacks, which also took the lives of six Americans.
The charges against Headley, 49, now include the six conspiracy counts, as well as proving material support to foreign terrorist plots, providing support to Lashkar and six counts of aiding and abetting the murder of U.S. citizens in India….
