One of the leaders of the alleged airline suicide plot threatened "volcanoes of anger and revenge" on the British public for caring more about foxhunting than the war in Iraq, a court has heard.
Ahmed Abdulla Ali, 27, filmed a "martyrdom video" in which he said that large demonstrations had forced the Government to change its policy on bloodsports and accused his targets of showing "more care and concern for animals" than for Muslims.
He said he would teach the West a "lesson they will never forget" in the video played to the jury.
Ali and seven other men are accused of planning to blow up transatlantic airliners in a suicide bombing operation planned in August 2006. As the trial moved into its second week, jurors at Woolwich Crown Court were shown the full "suicide" videos filmed by members of the gang accused of plotting to blow up transatlantic jets in mid-air over America and Canada.
Seven suicide videos were made by six men, recorded on a Sony camcorder, and lasting more than an hour. All wore similar black and white checked headscarfs and sat in front of a black flag with white Arabic writing.
Ali's video lasted for 16 minutes and at one stage he lost his train of thought, asking, "What was the question?"
Referring to the foxhunting debate he said: "When foxes are being killed you do massive demonstrations and forced the Government to change policies, so what when the people are being killed?
"You don't care about the Muslims that are being killed."
He added: "This the opportunity to punish and humiliate the kuffar (unbelievers), to teach them a lesson they will never forget.
"It is to tell them we Muslim people have pride."
Referring to Osama bin Laden, Ali told his audience: "Sheikh Osama warned you many times to leave our lands or you will be destroyed and now the time has come for you to be destroyed and you have nothing to expect than floods of martyr operations, volcanoes and anger and revenge erupting among your capital."
He went on: "Expect floods of martyr operations against you and we will take our revenge and anger, ripping amongst your people and scattering the people and your body parts and your people's body parts responsible for these wars and oppression decorating the streets."
Just before wiping the sweat from his brow with a towel, he added: "I was over the moon that Allah has given me the opportunity to lead this blessed operation."
The alleged suicide bombers were asked again and again off-camera if they had been brainwashed.
Tanvir Hussain said: "I could have lived a comfortable life. The only thing brainwashing me is your oppression."
Waheed Zaman said he had been "educated to a high standard" and added: "I am old enough to make my own decisions."
They were also asked whether they were worried about "so-called innocent victims." Hussain said: "You've got to blame yourself, and collateral damage is going to be inevitable and people are going to die, besides, you know, it's worth the price."
The Sony digital video tape was found hidden in the garage of Assad Sarwar in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire along with more than 20 litres of hydrogen peroxide, allegedly a key ingredient for the bombs.
A memory stick also found in the garage allegedly showed Sarwar had been exploring possible targets including Telehouse, described as Europe's largest internet exchange.
Other research included Bacton gas terminal, oil refineries and the British Energy Group which runs eight nuclear power stations. Details had also been stored on Canary Wharf, and Heathrow and Stansted airports.
The eight defendants deny conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to endanger aircraft. The case continues.
videos filmed by members of the gang..............
They are not a gang, they are terrorist!
“Ahmed Abdulla Ali, 27, filmed a “martyrdom video” in which he said that large demonstrations had forced the Government to change its policy on bloodsports and accused his targets of showing “more care and concern for animals” than for Muslims.”
Animals...Muslims...well, you know.
Nothing is more a threat to Britain than these vast numbers of Mohammedans who have moved onto the Isle and preach pure hate.
The same nutty city people also condemn proposed restrictions on Mohammedan immigration as “racist”.
Foxes are cuter than bearded degenerates. Get used to it. ;)
Ahmed, you will have my fullest sympathy...when Muslims top behaving like animals.
"This the opportunity to punish and humiliate the kuffar (unbelievers), to teach them a lesson they will never forget."
Too late, we already learned it on 911.
Before that, most Americans at least had no idea what a Muslim was, and were pretty happy to keep it that way. Before 911, you were just those quaint people with the funny head scarves. Before 911, we weren't awake enough to realize how you breed, how you breed hate, and that our deaths are the ultimate goal of your tin-pot faux religion.
You are the Borg. You are every faceless, nameless walking zombie we've ever laughed at in the back of a cinema. You are the pod people in Invasion of the Mind Snatchers who take innocent human beings and infect them with the creeping biological cancer you refer to as Islam. You are the Cylons; we can lie to ourselves that you want to make peace, but we now know that you don't.
Don't worry, Ahmed. We know all about you now. Your kind saw to that. And if we can keep the Democrats out of power, we are going to do our best to see people like you are rewarded with your 72 virgins as quickly and cleanly as possible. The really sad part is that people like you, who have no internal sympathy programing when you kill, are going to make those of us who have it feel very bad when we ultimately have to hunt you down and kill you.
As an American, it is real easy to care more about animals than about Muslims.
9/11 will never be forgotten in this house.
