[quote]Quebec court finds man guilty of bomb plot in Germany, Austria
(AFP) – 1 day ago
MONTREAL — A Quebec court on Thursday found a Moroccan living in Canada guilty of terrorism for promoting jihad and plotting attacks in Germany and Austria.
Said Namouh, 36, was found guilty of four charges under Canada’s Anti-Terrorism Act, including “conspiracy to deliver, discharge or detonate an explosive or lethal device in a public place,” said a prosecution statement.
The other charges were “participating in the activities of a terrorist group, facilitating terrorist activities and extortion of a foreign government for the benefit, at the direction and in association with a terrorist group.”
Namouh was arrested in September 2007 for engaging in more than 1,000 online conversations and producing videos praising violent attacks on US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as helping distribute ransom demands for kidnappers of a British journalist in Gaza.
In online postings, he also touted his explosives expertise and threatened future attacks in Germany and Austria because of their military roles in Afghanistan.
Well that blows. So much for Canada’s image around the world.
Yeah, yeah, I know, he was born in Morocco, he wasn’t one of us.
It just disturbs me, how many more there must be.
I hope the government is on the ball and catches whoever he was partnering with. The Toronto 18 were bad enough, we do not need people like this committing terror in Europe and the headlines there, unlike ours, will call him not a Moroccan but a Canadian.
The only solution I can think of to this problem are unthinkable. It’s like were helpless.
I guess what surprises me the most is that the USA wasn’t a target. Europe is more important to terrorists now? What could it mean?
