  1. In 2010, London Bridge terrorist Usman Khan's al Qaeda-inspired gang planned to bomb the Church of Scientology of London.

    Daily Mail: London Bridge terrorist and Anjem Choudary's 'personal friend' Usman Khan was AUTOMATICALLY freed after serving seven years - less than HALF his 16-year sentence for plotting Mumbai-style terror attack on London and assassination of Boris Johnson

    NOTE: I respectfully request that no one joke about the gang making the attempt, much less being successful. The Church of Scientology would undoubtedly seize upon such "jokes" as proof that ex-Scientologists, critics and Scientology watchers support terrorism against the Church of Scientology and Scientologists. Please don't.

    Khan had previously been arrested on December 20, 2010, four days before he and his nine-strong Al-Qaeda-inspired gang had planned to plant a bomb in the toilets of the London Stock Exchange.

    After arresting Khan's gang, police found a handwritten list of targets which included the U.S.

    Embassy and the homes of London Mayor Boris Johnson, the Dean of St Paul's Cathedral and two rabbis.

    The gang also carried out surveillance of other possible targets including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster and the London Eye.

    The group planned to send five bombs in the post to London synagogues and the Church of Scientology headquarters, as well as spreading panic in Stoke-on-Trent by planting bombs in pub and club toilets.

    Their plot was foiled after the security services bugging their homes and cars heard discussions of a 'Mumbai' atrocity on the streets of Britain, mirroring the guerrilla-style 2008 attack in India.

    Khan, then aged 20, was secretly recorded talking about plans to recruit UK radicals to attend a training camp in Kashmir.
