London police and British intelligence services foiled a Nairobi-style terrorist attack on London citizens recently.
Four Islamists were arrested. All are British nationals but are ethnics from Turkey, Algeria, Pakistan, and Azerbaijani.
They apparently met in Syria while waging war against President Assad. They freely returned to Britain after their terrorist activities in Syria and decided to kill British citizens for Allah.
Police had the four under surveillance, and shot their car tires out when they drove near the Tower of London.
These four are now being charged with terrorist activities after having returned from their Syrian killing spree.
More troubling than these four British nationals who wish to kill their fellow British citizens is the fact that there are at least 50 Islamists who have recently returned to Britain. The question is why would Britain welcome them back? Hundreds more of these terrorists are scattered throughout Europe after their time in Syria killing “infidels.”
The International Business Times reporter Tom Porter has reported on these 50 terrorists:
A security source told the Sunday Times that MI5 was tracking a number of individuals who are believed to have fought for al-Qaida-linked jihadist groups against the forces of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
“Extremists go there and come back enthused and with added skills. Others go there and make contacts which they otherwise may not have made,” said the source.
Radicals from the UK, and countries including Germany, the US and Belgium, are believed to travel to northern Syria across the country’s borders with Turkey and Lebanon, often under the guise of humanitarian workers, then ally themselves with groups such as Jabhat al Nusra, which has pledged allegiance to al-Qaida and which, security officials believe, intends to target the west.
“It is likely that there are people who are going out there as part of an aid convoy, and that once they are there they might decide to do something else,” Raffaello Pantucci, a senior research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute, told the paper.
Ibrahim al-Mazwagi, who in March became the first UK jihadist to be killed in the conflict, told his family he was travelling to Syria for charity work.
This week, the new director of MI5, Andrew Parker, said that the agency was devoting more time to monitoring UK nationals travelling to and from Syria.
“For the future, there is good reason to be concerned about Syria. A growing proportion of our casework now has some link to Syria, mostly concerning individuals from the UK who have travelled to fight there or who plan to,” he said.
Britain is committing national suicide by permitting Islamists to operate freely in their country – especially those who have returned from Syria. Of course, our country’s pro-Islamist leaders are helping America commit suicide as well to benefit the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist/Sharia groups in the U.S.
