I have to hand it to the Brits. While I have issues with their inability to fight the infiltration of Islamism, they are doing a bang up job on the prosecution of the Islamic barbarians.
Apparently there will be several more trials like this soon. The UK has a very good recent record of disrupting jihadi plots and putting people away.
Five men have been jailed for life for a UK bomb plot linked to al-Qaeda that could have killed hundreds of people.
Jurors in the year-long Old Bailey trial heard of plans to target a shopping centre, nightclub and the gas network with a giant fertiliser bomb.
The judge, Sir Michael Astill, said the men, all British citizens, had "betrayed their country".
Mohammed Babar arrived at the Old Bailey to give evidence in a cavalcade of police vehicles, surrounded by armed officers and outriders and watched by a helicopter overhead.
The biggest terrorist supergrass ever seen against Muslim extremists stared straight ahead in the witness box, never so much as glancing at his friends in the dock.
He had been on his way to a taxi driving school on Long Island City, New York when he was surrounded by a group of four FBI agents and plain clothed local police (APRIL 2004).

Those alleged to have helped the 7 July and Crawley bomb plots are free in the UK. More here
"Q" and Sajil Shahid VIDEO HERE
Again according to Junaid Babar, he and Sajil Shahid traveled to the district of Malakand on the al-Qaeda controlled Afghan frontier areas in 2003.
There they set up a terror training camp. "Q" in Luton sent Omar Khyam and Mohammed Sidique Khan to Lahore in July 2003. Babar then met them both at the airport along with some of the other Crawley plotters.
They all went to the Malakand training camp.
Newsnight has discovered that some of those who were alleged to have helped the men involved in the London bombings and the Crawley plot are still walking the streets of Britain. During the course of our investigations we confronted two of them on camera. One was a man known as "Q" from Luton. The other was Sajil Shahid whose last known address was in Barking.
