    We are up against it here!!!!!
    I hope it doesnt go the same way over there.."stay-safe"

    A schoolboy who possessed a guide to making napalm on his computer and had notes on martyrdom under his bed became Britain's youngest convicted terrorist yesterday.

    Hammaad Munshi, whose grandfather is a leading Islamic scholar, was 15 and taking his GCSEs when he was arrested. Munshi, now 18, was convicted of making a record of information likely to be useful in terrorism following a three-month trial at Blackfriars Crown Court in London. He was cleared of one possession offence.

    For Munshi, the first indication he was being watched by police came out of the blue one summer afternoon in 2006. He was walking home from school after sitting a GCSE exam when he was seized by officers from the Leeds counter-terrorism unit set up in the wake of the 7 July bombings in London.

    A few hours later, he was in a cell being questioned about his double life. By day, he attended lessons at Westbury High School in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, and did as he was told. But in the evening, he spent hours surfing jihadist sites and distributing material to others in what the Crown branded a global conspiracy to "wipe out" non-Muslims.

    He had detailed instructions about making napalm, other high explosives, detonators and grenades, and "how to kill", the court heard. Munshi was 15 when he was recruited by Aabid Khan, 23, a "key player" in radicalising the impressionable and vulnerable in Britain and abroad with his message of "violent jihad".

    They lived 10 miles apart, phoned each other during 2005 and 2006, and swapped documents about "black powder explosives". Khan wanted to fulfil the teenager's wish to go abroad and "fight jihad". During one internet exchange, they discussed how Munshi might smuggle a sword through airport security.

    Oh jesus a SWORD! Wow, If these laws were here in EITHER Canada or the US, I am pretty sure I would have been Arrested along time ago. as in when I was 10 or 11. I had the whole "Napalm" recipes back then, but guess what, They still dont work! So what if he was recruited when he was a minor, young people do stupid things. Hence being young and dumb. well I hope people start to notice their children being watched, but I have a def. fealing the news will glass over these little actions.
