Further information about the ill-intent that too many of Britain’s Muslims have for the rest of us have been revealed by recent arrests in London that may have disrupted a major Islamic terror plot. There is much speculation that those behind this plot may have been planning to publicly behead another British citizen on British soil. Knowing well the Islamic penchant for gross public violence used in order to terrorise non-Muslims, it would be unwise to dismiss the veracity of such speculation. Islam speaks with violence and behaves with violence and little is gained by trying to delude ourselves that at heart Islam is a religion of peace, when it is obviously not anything like a peaceful faith.
Breitbart London put out an early report on these arrests which said:
“Police and MI5 have foiled what would have been the first ISIS terror attack in the UK, it has emerged.
Four men were arrested yesterday morning in connection with terror offences, but the full scale of their plot has only just come to light.
The Times reports that the group are suspected of planning to carry out terror attacks on the streets of London after acquiring weapons for attacks on individuals. Authorities suspected they may even try to carry out copycat beheadings on the capital’s streets, inspired by the videos showing the decapitations of hostages.
Last year, soldier Lee Rigby was murdered by two Islamist extremists who attempted to behead him outside his army barracks in Woolwich, London.
Fear of a home grown attack have increased since the UK joined air strikes against the self-proclaimed Islamic State. In August the terror threat level was raised to ‘severe’, its second highest level, meaning that a terror attack is ‘highly likely’, while earlier this week, Breitbart London reported that anti-terror police activity is at its highest level for nearly ten years.
Counter-terror researcher Olivier Guitta told the Times that the threat of an attack in Britain had risen ten-fold since the UK joined US-led air strikes, adding: “They should be very worried not only of returning jihadists but of people who are here. They will say, ‘I am not going to go all the way to Syria, I can just do it here’.”
At least one of the men arrested has reportedly returned from fighting in Syria.”
This foiled attack should show every Briton what Islam is truly like and why it needs to be treated more harshly than other beliefs. You can probably count on two hands the number of instances of Sikh, Hindu or Jewish terrorism that have occurred in the years since September 11th 2001, but since then there have been 24,013 terror attacks carried out by Muslims. Islam is not peaceful today and neither has it been peaceful in the past.
Further detail about the circumstances of the arrests has come from Sky News which said:
“Four men have been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences in a series of raids, during which one suspect was Tasered.
The men – all aged 20 or 21 – were detained by officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command at addresses across London as part of an investigation into Islamist terror activities.
Officers believe the raids disrupted what could have been a “significant plot”, according to a Whitehall source quoted by the Press Association.
The 21-year-old who was Tasered during his arrest did not require medical treatment, Scotland Yard said.
“SO15 officers were assisted in the execution of warrants at one of the addresses by officers from the Specialist Firearms Command (SCO19). No shots were fired,” police said in a statement.
“A number of residential addresses and vehicles are being searched by specialist officers in west and central London as part of the investigation. The searches are ongoing.
“These arrests and searches are part of an ongoing investigation into Islamist-related terrorism.”
All four suspects have been taken to police stations in central London and remain in custody.”
Although this action by the police and Security Service is welcome, it doesn’t go far enough. There should be a comprehensive policy of continual audio/video monitoring of mosques, the licensing of Imams and the exclusion of political Islam and those who promote it from public life. Let us hope that these arrests do mark a turning point in how our security forces deal with Islam and the terror that it both encourages and promotes. In the past there has been a tendency to see Islamic terror as only being carried out or encouraged by the Islamic Far Right but it is the Muslim community in Britain as a whole that has been creating these radicalised and violent individuals who both call for and fight Jihad. It is time that we recognised that the radical Muslims are being both created and sheltered by members of the wider Muslim community. The former Chinese revolutionary and dictator Mao Tse-Tung was alleged to have stated that ‘The guerrilla must swim in the people as the fish swims in the sea.” the alleged Muslim terrorists such as these, have been swimming in the sea of the wider Muslim community for far too long and it is about time that this sea of of hatred was drained.
