The Wall Street Journal: Britain Has Been In Denial About The Islamist Threat, And It’s Time To Face It Down


Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

For Peaceful Purposes

For Peaceful Purposes

By DOUGLAS MURRAY, The Wall Street Journal – “How many ignored warnings does it take? That is one question that should hang over Britain after the horror of the daytime murder of a British soldier on the streets of south London. On Wednesday afternoon, Drummer Lee Rigby was killed in Woolwich by two men wielding large knives and shouting ‘Allahu akbar’—God is great.

Islamists have been saying for years they would do this. They have planned to do it. And now they have done it.

The attack itself is not surprising. What is surprising is that British society remains so utterly unwilling not just to deal with this threat, but even to admit its existence. Politicians have called the Woolwich killing ‘unforgivable’ and ‘barbarous.’ But expressions of anger should not really be enough.

Attempts to attack military targets in Britain go back to before the millennium and even before, it is important to note, the war on terror. In 1998 Amer Mirza, a member of the now-banned extremist group al Muhajiroun, attempted to petrol-bomb British army barracks. In 2007, a cell of Muslim men was found guilty of plotting to kidnap and behead a British soldier in Birmingham. The plan had been to take the soldier to a lock-up garage and cut off his head ‘like a pig.’ They wanted to film this act on camera and send it around the world to cause maximum terror.

In 2009, al Muhajiroun protested at a homecoming parade in Luton for British troops returning from Afghanistan. Carrying banners saying ‘go to hell,’ ‘butchers’ and ‘terrorists,’ the group was protected by British police officers from an increasingly irate crowd of locals. The resulting outrage toward the police gave rise to the deeply troubling English Defence League, a street protest movement that often turns violent.

Now comes the attack in Woolwich, which the perpetrators—as with the earlier cell—wished to be observed and even filmed. Reports suggest that they invited people to capture their actions on video. The perpetrators gave interviews, machetes in hand, to bystanders with cameras. This horrific scene is something that will stick in the memory.

But it should also have been foreseen.” Read more.

    God forbid, the brutal butchering that happened to that poor British soldier never happens to one of parliament’s sons or daughters. Is this what has to happen for the Brits to wake up and stop this?

    To organicnatu–It was a scam, pure fraud initiated by Marxist to create chaos. These scu_b_gs work both side of the street. Google terms such as woman passing by and beheading in London, and eventually you’ll find undisputed proof of this sham. And, oh, by the way. It is now a crime to ask anyone in Newtown about the school shooting; a man was recently arrested for asking the Coroner questions. I smell a rat; I think you will to.

    To jk9267 I heard about the secret filing of the Newton shooting records and supposedly no one can review the records. I believe the Newton shooting was all staged because there are 2 many unanswered questions, and the alleged shooter Adam hadn’t been seen by neighbors in several years. Where was he? Neighbors didn’t even know he lived in the house on the street. That was reported on MSM news! by Diane Sawyer days after the shooting.

    On the British soldier, I saw a video today where the family, mother, father, and wife were being interviewed I think it was MSNBC. The wife was sobbing her eyes out and that did not look like an act. Who knows? One thing that didn’t make sense to me about the British soldier attack was how he came to be in the car with the 2 muslims who attacked him? The UK Daily Mail wrote the driver of the car crashed into something into the street, and the soldier was in the car, but the article never said how he came to be in the car. A witness reported that the soldier was first attacked in the car, and then dragged out of the car and continued to be butchered in the street. There was a picture of a blue car that crashed with the driver front fender all smashed in. I guess you have to weed out the fact from the fiction in every single incident u read about these days, because I don’t trust any thing the MSM prints.

    Thank u for the compelling video jk9267. Ref. the Newton shootings, I suspected right from the get-go that the autopsies was a false report. First, there is no law that I am aware of to mandate an autopsy because the “alleged” deaths were obvious from gun shots to the bodies, and no way a coroner can do that many autopsies in such a short period of time, plus the fact that the parents were not allowed to view any of the dead bodies prior to.

    I also suspected the story was staged right from the start when the Federal Government took over the entire investigation right from the start instead of the local law enforcement departments.

    The guy arrested in the video will never go to trial. No way do the liars want this information to be publicized.
