Jihadi Forum Claim: Muslim Doctors Planned US Terrorism

The UK's Telegraph reports that 45 Muslim doctors were planning terror attacks against US targets on an online chat room run by three "cyber-jihadis" who have been arrested by British authorities:
One message read: "We are 45 doctors and we are determined to undertake jihad and take the battle inside America.

"The first target which will be penetrated by nine brothers is the naval base which gives shelter to the ship Kennedy." This is thought to have been a reference to the USS John F Kennedy, which is often at Mayport Naval Base in Jacksonville, Florida.

The message discussed targets at the base, adding: "These are clubs for naked women which are opposite the First and Third units."

It also referred to using six Chevrolet GT vehicles and three fishing boats and blowing up petrol tanks with rocket propelled grenades.
This would be easier to laugh off if the recent UK terror plots hadn't been perpetrated by doctors.
