....A MUSLIM hairdresser and her Bradford-born husband have been convicted of planning a terror attack in the Jewish neighbourhood of Manchester.

Shasta Khan, 38, and her husband, Mohammed Sajid Khan, 33, bought substances and equipment from supermarkets to assemble an improvised explosive device.

Police found a cache of terror-related material after being called to a domestic dispute at the couple's home in Oldham, last July.

Beheading videos, propaganda glorifying Osama bin Laden and bomb-making guides were seized along with peroxide and bleach, used by Shasta Khan in her hairdressing work, which together with electrical equipment were being readied to make a bomb.

A satnav from her Peugeot 305 vehicle showed they had been on multiple trips to Jewish populated areas around Manchester, looking for targets to attack.

A jury at Manchester Crown Court found Shasta Khan guilty of engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism and two counts of possessing information useful for committing or preparing for an act of terrorism. She was cleared of a third count of the latter charge.

Her husband pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism Both will be sentenced at 2pm tomorrow.

British-born Muslim Shasta Khan was convicted by a majority ruling of 11-1 on the main charge of preparing for acts of terrorism.

She cried in the dock as the verdicts were delivered and then wailed as she was led to the cells.

Opening the case four weeks ago, prosecutor Bobbie Cheema said behind their "apparent normality of daily life", Sajid Khan, an unemployed car valeter, and his wife planned to carry out "jihad at home".

They both became radicalised by material found on the internet such as an al Qaida magazine called Inspire, the aim of which is to encourage Muslims in the West and this country to carry out holy war or jihad by mounting attacks in their own countries independent of any outside direction or association with any other person.

In response, the pair prepared to carry out a terrorist attack on British soil, with the most likely target being an orthodox Jewish area of Prestwich....

Please, Richard, show us your dazzling analytical skills. What lesson should we take away from this incident, and how might it be applied?

Did the Iraqis publish "B-52 bomblette watch" during the 2001 invasion?

Sleepers are the biggest problem in terms of Islamic terrorism. Why did we invade Iraq again?

TucsonCoyote says:
I assume this may not be a common occurrence but certainly an everyday concern for our police. The fact that they are extremists is the problem, correct? I mean Muslim, Christian, or Non-denominational who cares? They are crazies that we hope to catch prior to the action(s) they are planning.

I don't think BBH is disputing any of the facts; I believe BBH is attempting to point out that Mr. Wright is painting with a very broad brush that includes all practitioners of Islam. He might come off a bit better had he included this tidbit from May of this year that shows not all homegrown terrorists are Muslims.

"Venice man among 12 arrested in supremacist bomb plot"
http://www2.tbo.com/news/breaking-news/2012/may/18/venice-man-among-12-arrested-in-supremacist-bomb-p-ar-405096/

Mr. Wright is a well known agitator in these forums.

OK fair enough, what former poster are you, possibly with an empty profile because you were banned?

I think the lesson is one Muslim is the same as ALL Muslims. So I guess all white males should be screened extra hard at federal buildings too.

It's not the facts that are wrong, it's the implication. Or it inferrence?

Boomy says:
While you do make a good point about the broad brush Ricky swashes around with, my point was more akin to if the USA had pursued the "guilty" parties for 9/11 more like a police action and targeted assassinations, than as the overall broad war in which many innocents died, it would have probably spawned less future jihadist terrorists, than we have now. Death from a terrorist bomb for being American sucks just as much as death from a American bomblette for being Iraqi...and spawns the same if opposite side hate.

As opposed to the other 150 less well known agitators, at least 5 of which have already posted here?

(oops, now 6)
