In online postings, he also touted his explosives expertise and threatened future attacks in Germany and Austria because of their military roles in Afghanistan.
According to prosecutors, Namouh was a member of the Global Islamic Media Front, which is said to be involved in propaganda and jihad recruitment for Al-Qaeda. He faces possible life in prison.

“Quebec man guilty of terror charges”
SNIPPET: “The Maskinongé terrorist was found guilty today on four charges of taking part in the activities of a terrorist group, including one count of plotting to set off a bomb in Vienna.
The three other charges accused Saïd Namouh of acting as a propaganda arm for violent Islamists.”
SNIPPET: “While Mr. Namouh appeared to dream of jihad, much of the wiretapped evidence captures his troubles with money and women, along with his disorganized attempt to get a passport for his alleged mission.”
SNIPPET: “Mr. Namouh went further than idle chatter and cover specific plans to set off a bomb in Europe. He described himself as a terrorist and said he was ready to die as a martyr.”
SNIPPET: “The Crown said Mr. Namouh was a key member of the GIMF, a group that prosecutor Dominique Dudemaine described as a public relations outlet for a number of jihad groups, including al-Qaeda and Army of Islam, the group that kidnapped BBC journalist Alan Johnston in Gaza in 2007.”

You’re welcome fanfan.
I suppose the article subtitle could be: “A portrait of a loser.”
LOL, you’re right.
Somehow it’s comforting to know that most North American jihadis are just masturbating losers living in their parents’ basement.
Jeez, just like neo-Nazis... who knew?
