3. "Devout terrorist" jailed for Australia plot
A 22-year-old Australian man described as a 'devout terrorist' was sentenced to 22 years in jail Friday for plotting to attack government buildings in Sydney, as authorities grapple with the rise of homegrown Islamist extremism.
Sulayman Khalid was handed the sentence at the New South Wales Supreme Court after pleading guilty to conspiring to act in preparation for a terrorist attack.
He was arrested during a series of police raids in Sydney and Brisbane in late 2014.
Four others, including an unnamed teenager, were jailed for between nine and 18 years for similar or lesser offences -- such as intentionally making a document connected with the preparation of a terrorist act.
Khalid 'occupied a co-ordinating role' in the plot, Justice Geoffrey Bellew wrote in his ruling.
'In offending as he did, Khalid demonstrated that he was a devout terrorist, he added.

The author of a report on integration in the UK told a police summit the desire to embrace diversity was letting down people in society and difficult conversations were required in some socially divided communities, such as Bradford.
Speaking at the APCC and NPCC Partnership Summit in London, she said: 'If you’re not alive to the importance of talking about these issues then there’s not much hope of stopping these possible things happening to us.'”
The article continues to push fully discredited theories about economics and Islamic terrorism. However its initial premise is worth reading. That far left wing thought, namely “political correctness” is responsible for failing to properly deal with islamic terror, and spreading of hatred of classical civilization and its freedoms.
