Woman charged in London with planning to bomb St Paul's cathedral
[Jpost] LONDON - A woman appeared in court on Wednesday charged with terrorism offenses including scoping out St Paul's cathedral as a possible bomb target.

Safiyya Amira Shaikh, 36, was remanded in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court to appear again at the Old Bailey court on Nov. 1, police said.

Shaikh, of Hayes, west London, was charged with preparing terrorist acts between August and October this year including making contact with someone she believed could help her make explosives.

The preparations also included traveling to London and staying at a hotel to conduct reconnaissance, police added in a statement.

The statement of charges said she "noted the hotel’s suitability as a target for a bomb (and) attended St Paul’s to scope it, for security and for the best place to plant a second bomb."

She is also charged with preparing the words of a pledge of allegiance to Islamic State.

#4 St. Paul's is also home to the American Memorial Chapel, so that would have been a bit of a two-fer. But what could her motives have been? She was probably mentally disturbed.

#5 What really caused the Notre Dame fire ?

I wouldn't be surprised if it was an 'act of Gawd', but the French should have used it to rally around for the protection of churches and waved it in muslim faces like they do islamophobia.
