"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Scots-based supporters of an Islamic militant on trial for soliciting the murder of Americans attempted to undermine his Old Bailey trial by offering the judge £50,000 in cash, it emerged yesterday.

Details of the attempted bribe were revealed in court yesterday after self-proclaimed Islamic Sheikh, Abdullah el-Faisal, 39, was found guilty of three charges of soliciting murder by backing the use of chemical weapons and trying to recruit British Muslims for terrorist training camps. In a case that made legal history, father-of-four el-Faisal, a Jamaican who converted to Islam on his 16th birthday, was found guilty of soliciting the murder of Jews, Americans and Hindus during a series of lectures at universities and mosques around Britain.

This of course was the trial where Jews and Hindus were banned from the jury.
