The only hint that the hopelessly compromised BBC gives to the fact that these men were plotting jihad terror is that it tells us that they are a "British national of Turkish origin" and "a British national of Algerian origin."
These arrests are odd. British authorities banned me from the country for saying that Islam had a doctrine of warfare against unbelievers. So apparently the British authorities have no problem with Islam having a doctrine of warfare against unbelievers -- as is underscored by the fact that they let in Mohammed al-Arefe the week before they banned me, even though al-Arefe has said: "Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight."
So why are they arresting Muslims who are acting upon Islam's doctrine of warfare against unbelievers? They should be giving them medals -- and weapons.
"Pair charged with terror offences," from the BBC, October 20 (thanks to Lookmann):
Two men arrested arrested last week in London have been charged under the Terrorism Act, Scotland Yard says.
The men, both aged 25, were arrested on 13 October and will appear before Westminster magistrates on Monday.
One has been charged with engaging in acts with the intention of committing or assisting in acts of terrorism.
Both were charged with collecting or recording information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.
One of the men was also charged with a further offence contrary to the Identity Documents Act 2010.
They were were arrested in a car in Mansell Street, Whitechapel, east London, after police fired "Hatton rounds" - ammunition designed to burst tyres and blow open doors.
At the time of their arrest, police said one was a British national of Turkish origin and the second was a British national of Algerian origin.
Two other men arrested during the same operation were released earlier this week.
One was a 28-year-old British national of Azerbaijani origin who was arrested outside the premises of Planet Organic in Westbourne Grove, Bayswater, west London.
The other was a 29-year-old British national of Pakistani origin who was arrested in Peckham Hill Street, Peckham, south-east London....
