UK: Special Forces Move Into London As Gov’t Fears “Mumbai-Style” Terrorist Spectacular
Some experiments end in success, others end in disaster. Welcome to the utopia called multiculturalism where the future is bright … for Islamic terrorists …
Qur’an Sura 2:191-193, “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-Muslims] … fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”
By Donna Rachel Edmunds, Breitbart – “London could be the scene of a Mumbai-style terrorist ‘spectacular’ if Islamist jihadists get their way, British security chiefs have warned. There is growing concern that a list of ‘soft’ targets is being drawn up, and that weapons and explosives have already been smuggled into the country.
The Sun is reporting that the SAS has moved part of its anti-terror team to a forward base near London, amid concerns that a prolonged attack may be staged in that city. MI5 also referred to the Mumbai atrocity of 2008 as a comparison, in which coordinated bombings and shootings took place over four consecutive days, killing 174 and wounding a further 300.
Speaking to The Sun, a source said: ‘The nightmare scenario is they mount a spectacular attack at a high profile location. They may try to storm a building, take hostages, rig it with explosives or kill at will.’
The threat has caused the official ‘threat level’ to be raised to severe, increasing tensions in the city and prompting people to share warnings of an imminent bomb attack on the London Underground on social media and via text last night. The threat was dismissed as a hoax after the head of the British Transport Police took to Twitter, posting: ‘Social media contains lots of rumours regarding threats to tube network tomorrow. There is no specific threat so keep calm & carry on.’
However, Twitter user David O’Neill pointed out: ‘Must say though. If you raise the threat level to severe you can’t be shocked when people believe stupid rumours about attacks on the tube.’
Up to 500 British-born men are understood to have gone abroad in order to fight for the Islamic State (IS). Scotland Yard believes that up to 200 may have already returned, and are concerned that they will have been taught to carry out similar violent attacks on the streets of Britain.” Read more.
Flashback: UK: Jihadist Fighter In Syria Threatens To Go On Killing Spree In Britain After Returning Home – “THE leader of the city council has moved to reassure people after it emerged a jihadi from Portsmouth posted he would go on a ‘killing spree’ if he returned from Syria. The comments from Councillor Donna Jones come after a man fighting with Al-Qaeda linked group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant in Syria wrote a message on Twitter. The man, using the name Abu Abdullah, seemed to threaten to kill non-Muslims. He wrote: ‘Yeah mate, go back to Britain. You got to be joking. I’ll probably end up going on a killing spree with all the kuffar around me.’” Read more.
Flashback: EU Anti-Terror Chief: Europe Can Expect More Islamist Attacks, French Expert: Threat Is Greater Than 9/11 – “Has Europe under-estimated the security threat posed by battle-hardened homegrown Islamic militants returning from Syria? … concern mounted Monday that the region is ill-equipped to cope with the threat posed by homegrown Islamic militants returning from Syria’s battlefields… Europe can expect further ‘small-scale attacks’ like the fatal shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, the EU’s anti-terror chief Gilles de Kerchove said Monday. ‘I don’t expect another 9/11,’ he said in a video statement. ‘I don’t expect a major sophisticated attack.’ ‘I [do] expect more small-scale attacks like the one in Brussels,’ he added. Not everyone agrees. French Al-Qaeda expert Jean-Pierre Filiu believes the threat posed by groups like ISIS, for Europe, is greater than that created by the Taliban’s sheltering of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan prior to the 2001 attacks on New York.” Read more.
Flashback: American Fighters In Syria Are Coming Home — And U.S. Intelligence Can’t Find Them – “The number of American extremists who have flocked to Syria is higher than previously understood, American intelligence sources say. And some of the fighters are coming home… ‘We know where some are,’ one senior U.S. intelligence official told The Daily Beast. ‘The concern is the scale of the problem we are dealing with.’ The scale of that problem by all accounts has gotten worse. Last fall, the official U.S. estimate on Americans specifically who have joined the jihad in Syria was in the low double digits. In January, the New York Times reported that at least 70 Americans have either traveled or attempted to travel to Syria. Earlier this month FBI Director James Comey told reporters that he believed ‘dozens’ of Americans were suspected to be foreign fighters in Syria, but declined to give a more precise number.” Read more.
