Cameron's Double Speak on Extremism: Record Shows Britain a Major Suppoter of Terror

by Kurt Nimmo

British Prime Minister David Cameron says his country will “take a more robust approach towards tackling all kinds of extremism,” according to a Reuters report today.

“In terms of our review of the Muslim Brotherhood, which we discussed today, that will be published later this year and I think you will see, as you are already seeing in Britain, a much more robust approach against extremism, against extremism of all kinds, and against those extremists who stop just short of endorsing violence,” Cameron said at a news conference with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Left out of the discussion is the fact British intelligence services have consistently supported and sheltered terrorists.

In February, reported:

British intelligence has played a key role in creating and fomenting terrorism.

As documented by Jean-Charles Brisard and Guillaume Dasquié, authors of The Forbidden Truth, in 1996 British intelligence paid al-Qaeda around $160,00 to fund an assassination plot against Libyan leader Mu’ammar al-Qadhafi. The British press was banned from discussing the case.

A member of the group, Anas al-Liby, was given political asylum in Britain. He lived there until May 2000 despite being an important al-Qaeda figure who would later be implicated in the alleged al-Qaeda bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.

In the late 1990s British intelligence recruited, groomed and protected a number of terrorist figures, including Abu Qatada. The radical imam told MI5 agents he exercised “powerful, spiritual influence over the Algerian community in London,” said he would look after the interests of the British state, and “would not bite the hand that fed him.”

Qatada would later figure as a key figure in terror. “The authorities said that a number of people arrested in connection with terrorism had described Abu Qatada’s influence. Richard Reid, the would-be mid-Atlantic shoe bomber, and Zacarias Moussaoui, both jailed for involvement in terrorism, are said to have sought religious advice from him. The cleric’s sermons were found in a flat in the German city of Hamburg used by some of those involved in 9/11,” the BBC reported.

A friend of Qatada’s, Bisher al-Rawi, would later become a key operative for British intelligence. He acted as a go-between for Qatada and MI5, The Independent reported in March, 2006.

Another important figure on the “Londonistan” scene was Abu Hamza al-Masri, the imam presiding over the infamous Finesbury Park mosque, described as “a first port of call, a meeting place and a haven for terror suspects arriving and operating in the UK,” including Richard Reid and Zacarias Moussaoui. “Hamza, as the imam of the mosque and its central figure, wielded a powerful influence over those who passed through its doors,” The Independent reported.

Hamza began working for British intelligence and police in 1997. He informed on fellow Muslims and was granted favors by MI5, including the release of suspected terrorists. Hamza told his aides he was “beyond the reach of British law,” according to authors Sean O’Neill Daniel McGrory (The Suicide Factory). An admission “that Abu Hamza and his followers were using [Britain] to raise funds to finance terrorism overseas did not seem to cause a blip on the MI5 agent’s radar,” O’Neill and McGrory write.

In 1999 Hamza would be implicated in the kidnapping and murder of Western tourists in Yemen. He would tell police he was following the Koran and would be released. The police returned to Hamza audio tapes “packed with the usual messages of intolerance and hatred, and culminating in exhortations to kill the enemies of Islam.”

His Finsbury Park mosque sermons were attended by alleged 9/11 hijackers Mohammed Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer. Haroon Rashid Aswat, a top aide to Abu Hamza, would later be singled out as the mastermind of the London 7/7 bombings. Aswat is also suspected of working with British intelligence.

Another leading imam, Omar Bakri Mohammed, who collaborated with Osama bin Laden, also worked for British intelligence. “The British government knows who we are. MI5 has interrogated us many times. I think now we have something called public immunity,” Bakri admitted in 2001. Like many jihadists, the Syrian born imam was connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, a documented British (and later CIA) intelligence asset.

    The enemy within … We are housing this filthy lot. They have simply proven that hard work and decency doesn’t pay. No one ever got rich honestly. We all know that crime pays. Our Government have taught us all a big lesson.

      If you are going to be a criminal think big. Launder a few $billion for a cocaine cartel grow tons of opium and ship it to the US via Globalhawk drones and you will get away scot free.

      Knock out a £10 bag of weed on a street corner and the full force of the law is applied.

      That keeps the competition from ever gaining a foot hold 🙂

      The laws is being used to protect the monopoly of the crime cartel posing as banksters and politicians.

    An Ex Copper speaks

    “…The U.K. abandoned a much campaigned-for change to legislation that would have made it easier to prosecute corrupt companies in the latest nod to a new era of deregulation for business under the re-elected Conservatives.

    In a written answer to a lawmaker’s question posted Monday, junior Justice Minister Andrew Selous said the “ministers have decided not to carry out further work” on an expansion of corporate criminal liability laws as there is “little evidence of corporate economic wrongdoing going unpunished.” “

    I am still reeling from the sheer insouciance of this piece of blatant mendacity and official fibbing. No wonder they picked a minister no-one has ever heard of to trot out this tissue of lies. If it had been announced by George Osborne, every newspaper would have picked up on it, instead of routinely ignoring it as all the tame Tory press has done.

    Ever since the Tories were re-elected, they have been engaging in a concerted campaign to undermine laws and regulations designed to bring proper controls to the activities of the legions of organised criminals, spivs, wide-boys and other bankers who populate the City of London, and who serve only the interests of the very rich within the Tory party.
