The leader of alleged suicide bomb plot said non-believers deserved to be attacked because they “have sex like donkeys”, orgies and took drugs, a court heard.
Ifan Naseer said the whole world was **** and people deserved to be terrorized.
The al-Qaeda inspired gang is accused of plotting to use eight suicide bombers detonating rucksacks packed with explosives in crowded places to cause “mass death” and carnage on the streets of Britain.
Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Ashik Ali, 27, all unemployed from Birmingham, are the alleged “senior members” of the group and were among 12 people arrested and charged last year.
They all deny the charges against them.
Naseer, a trained chemist and alleged ringleader, was secretly recorded by the police trying to justify the plot.
He said: “You know the main thing is bro all this world is **** bro, you like know what it is the only thing which is good yeah, is Allah’s Deen (faith).”
Criticising others, he went on: “They wanna you know have sex like donkeys on the street, they wanna club, act like animals and why shouldn’t we terrorise them, tell me that?”
“No, you think about it, if someone came in your house yeah and started dancing and throughout the night and started basically having orgies and smoking drugs and stuff, yeah, would you do Sabr (Patience) or would you look, you would, you would terrorise them ainit, yeah, there you go, so it’s on Allah’s earth, it’s Allah’s earth, then Allah created it, everybody and Allah gave you everything as well, then you tell me that one.”
Brian Altman QC, prosecuting, told the jury: “He is disdainful of Western values so why should he not terrorise them.”
Naseer also raised the prospect of a second wave of suicide bombers after his group’s plot.
At one stage Naseer is explaining the destruction just a small bomb weighing 1kg could do, “especially if shrapnel like nuts or nails were sellotaped to it”, Woolwich Crown Court heard.
He said: “You put it in the middle (of a street) both ways people at both ends would be harmed.”
He added that “you probably kill about 25 people with one kg one” and “injure about 60, 50”.
Naseer also spoke about using bombs on timers with an alarm clock.
The secret recording was played to the jury, the first time they had heard Naseer’s voice.
He said the “kuffars” – non-believers – would wet themselves and “probably die of a heart attack” because of the noise, which is as loud as “50 bullets together”.
Naseer also talked about 7 or 8 bombs on different places with timers to all go off at the same time. “Boom boom boom everywhere”, he said.
Yesterday it emerged that the cell applied for “pay day loans” to help fund their plot and were worried about exorbitant interest rates suggesting they would not be around to pay it back.
The gang, from Birmingham, also looked in to bank loans worth between £15,000 and £18,000, Woolwich Crown Court heard.
The group also planned to set up an Islamic learning centre to act as a “beautiful cover” and a mystery benefactor had offered £50,000 to help set it up although he did not know about the terror plot.
At the time, the men were based at a property in White Street, Birmingham, and when police raided it they discovered evidence of plans to make a bomb.
A partially burnt note was discovered contained formulae and diagrams, Brian Altman QC, prosecuting, told the jury.
Naseer, who has a pharmacy degree, was recorded talking about items needed including quantities of chemicals, syringes to be used to create a detonator, glue and drinking straws.
He also discussed nail polish remover, powder from match heads, electrical wiring, the use of batteries, sulphuric acid, hydrogen peroxide, ice packs and alarm clocks.
They planned to extract ammonium nitrate from sports injury cold packs, the jury was told.
The trial continues.
