Three Accused of Plotting Jewish Attacks
DUESSELDORF, Germany - Three men on trial for plotting to attack Jewish targets in Germany insisted Tuesday that they never belonged to a terrorist organization.

The men, along with another defendant, are accused of belonging to Al Tawhid, a radical network believed to be linked to al-Qaida and headed by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi now a prominent figure in Iraq.

Abdellah admitted being part of the Al Tawhid group, saying he befriended leader Al-Zarqawi in 2000 while in Afghanistan to undergo al-Qaida paramilitary training.

In exchange for his testimony at this and two other German terror trials, Abdellah was given a reduced sentence of four years and was released in November after serving about half his time. He was also put in Germany's witness protection program.

1. There will be more.
There was a recent arrest in LA of a bunch planning something similar. However, the LA crew was also planning attacks on governmental agencies, as well. I fear if something does happen it won't garner much surprise or outrage because of the targets.

Oh, gee, that should make everybody feel much safer.
