Terror plot suspect: I?m a pacifist

From The Copenhagen Post
One of the accused in the case involving a plot to blow up Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, says he’s a pacifist.
Tahawwur Rana is defending himself against the accusation he took part in planning to blow up the newspaper that published the infamous Mohammed cartoons by saying he only deals in non-violent actions, reports public broadcaster DR.
Rana, who is accused of financing and planning an attack on the paper, has told the police he believes in the late Mahatma Ghandi’s methods.
This stands in sharp contrast to the covert recordings the US police took of Rana and another man accused in the case, David Headley. In those, Rana praises a Pakistani terror organisation and says they ought to have details of their work.
Rana also reveals in those recordings that he knew about the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. He is due in court in Chicago today to try to be released on bail.
We are always being told that Islam means Peace, and soI'm sure that Islamic pacifism is quite compatible with terror.
