    Report: Al-Qaida planning Britain strikes - UPI.com

    LONDON, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Al-Qaida cells in London, Birmingham and Luton, England, are planning mass casualty attacks in Britain, a government intelligence report indicates.

    The restricted document, authored by the Ministry of Defense, MI5 and the British Special Branch, maintains al-Qaida operatives based in Britain will attempt another "spectacular" event targeting major transport facilities, such as airports and train stations, the Sunday Telegraph said.

    The report said there are "some thousands" of extremists active in Britain, who are mostly British-born young men of Pakistani and Middle Eastern descent between the ages of 18 and 30. Many of them, it said, are believed to have been trained in overseas terrorist camps.

    "For the foreseeable future the U.K. will continue to be a high-priority target for international terrorists aligned with al-Qaida," the government report said. "It will face a threat from British nationals, including Muslim converts, and U.K.-based foreign terrorists, as well as terrorists planning attacks from abroad."

    How would you define spectacular attack? 7/7 wasn't exactly spectacular.
    It resembled a normal day in Jerusalem, no?

    Can you explain for some friends of mine, what the Qu'ran says about "terrorism" and "infidels"?

    Uh, no. The death of even one human being via a terrorist is never run of the mill.

    I am not immature. Some friends of mine think the Qu'ran encourages "the killing of infidels." I wanted to ask you if that is correct. What passages do bin laden's followers cling to to justify their actions? I am not your friend at this point.

    Every religion has it's people who misconstrue their own holy books so as to justify the unjustifiable.

    I agree. I was hoping he could enlighten me as to the Qu'ran's passages that bin laden and his followers (and also evangelical Christians) misinterpret.
