The terror manual contains the Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty as potential targets. The manual, with chapters ‘dedicated’ to Osama bin Laden and written between 1989 and 1999 for Afghan mujahidin, has recommended ‘skyscrappers, ports, airports, nuclear plants, football stadiums and large congregations’ as targets. It is a blueprint for terrorism containing chapters on sabotage, assassinations and bomb-making techniques. The British police submitted this Encyclopaedia of Afghan Jihad which it claimed to have been recovered from the possession of Abu Hamza al-Masri, one of Britain’s most controversially radical Muslim clerics. Hamza, a rabid rabble-rouser, who had vitually turned the Finsbury mosque in north London into his headquarters, was arrested in 2004 for preaching hatred and murder through his speeches and for possessing tapes and documents that could help terrorists. The Egyptian-born cleric, had lost both the hands in a ‘jihadi’ campaign.
