A convicted al-Qaeda bomb-maker serving a jail sentence in Northern Ireland carried out dummy runs for a potential terrorist plot at Dublin and Knock airports, The Observer can reveal.
Last Tuesday the expelled Islamist cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed was seen exhorting young British Muslims in an online broadcast from Beirut to target Dublin because he incorrectly believed US troops used the airport as a transit centre on the way to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now it has emerged that key al-Qaeda bomb-making expert Abbas Boutrab visited both Dublin and Knock airports. Information on the airports was found at his north Belfast flat three years ago, according to evidence at his trial in Belfast Crown Court last November.

What are our "spys" doing?
You know the Media is so unbalanced I am still waiting to read about the 50,000 U.S. citizens that were killed in Times Square on New Years Eve 2005.... Oh thats right sorry Bush unlike Clinton acted and took out the Madman Saddam before he could get the (pick your poison) material to the terrorists for them to (pick your delivery method) use....
I'm glad theyre too stupid to figure it out. I've been through our ME stop over many times, it's not there.
We never should have invaded Ireland.
find it very very hard to believe that al qaeda doesn't know WHICH airport is used as there are always demonstrations going on there...antiAmerican ones.
We just waited to kick your arse in the US..
Why Ireland? No Bush there. No support for Israel that I know of. I wonder if it's because the Irish are mostly Christian.
Hmmm. We may be on to something there.
Of course it is. The murder and head chopping isn't about Israel, it's because we are Christians and Jews!
And yes, it makes a nice target also because it is a Christian country.
Another bone head now sitting in jail. They are one hell of a rotten bunch. Allah must really love them. Then again, it may be hard for a pedophile's father's little idol named allah to really have any sentiments.
Hurry up Irish. Give in right now and try to appease the Islamists as fast as you can. You never know, the Islamo-fascists might put off trying to murder you for a few more years. Somehow I think my Irish ancestors would get their Irish up, but you never know with todays leftist/appeasement thought prevalent in Europe today.
Story from last year:
I only live ten miles from Knock Airport!
I have been told by a good source that al-Qaida is working with the IRA/SinnFein.
God save Holy Knock. God save Ireland!
PRAY FOR IRELAND!
We just waited to kick your arse in the US.
Irish gals, they're so shy in expressing their true thoughts.
jla --- who really did just take his wax jacket out of the wash and hang it up to dry, as it will come in good comfort next month in the west of Ire.
You can be sure of it - but, of course, the usual suspects here on FR don't want to hear that!
