I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy — but that could change.

Encyclopedia Jihad

Lovely achivement by the flower of the ROP in London. Thankfully intercepted in time. The stuff that dreams are made of - ROP dreams that is.

(AFP) An Islamist extremist hatched a plot to kidnap a British Muslim soldier on a night out in central England and behead him "like a pig" in a lock-up garage, a British court heard Tuesday. Khan hoped to kidnap a Muslim serviceman from the entertainment district in Birmingham with the help of drug dealers.

"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.

"The lawyer said Khan, a father-of-three from Birmingham, was at the heart of a "terrorist cell" in the city and sent items to extremists in Pakistan disguised as aid for earthquake victims, medicine or food. They included computer hard drives, range-finders, night vision and other electronic equipment, sleeping bags, walkie-talkies and waterproof map holders.

Jurors were told how a search of Iqbal's home in Perry Barr found a bag of CDs and DVDs, including a computer disc entitled Encyclopedia Jihad. The material included electronic "books" on everything from booby traps and grenades to United States Army field manuals and a "Mujahideen poison book".

I am a cantankerous man living and working in the Silicon Valley where reading books is an abomination that is virtually unheard of, frowned upon and may be detrimental to one's career. I avoid censure by never conceding that I ever read or owned a book in my life. If anyone accidentally glimpses my scant proficiency in any subject matter, I immediately accredit it to having glanced at DrudgeReport that day.
