Australia: 5 Muslims Sentenced In Terror Plot

SYDNEY An Australian court Monday sentenced five Muslim extremists to prison terms of 23 to 28 years after convicting them of preparing for terror attacks on unspecified targets by stockpiling explosive chemicals and firearms.

Justice Anthony Whealy of the New South Wales Supreme Court said he had little hope that the men, aged 25 to 44, could be rehabilitated, saying they were motivated by "intolerant, inflexible religious conviction" and had shown contempt for the Australian government, its leaders and laws.

The men were found guilty last October on charges linked to preparing for a terrorist act between July 2004 and November 2005. The men Australian-born or naturalized citizens with Muslim immigrant backgrounds had all pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Rehabilitation doesn't work out to well, glad they realize this. Lets hope the Obama administration will get with the program instead of sending GITMO detainees to Yemen for rehab.
