Here yet again we see the bitter fruit of assuming without a shred of evidence that Muslims not engaged in terrorism are loyal supporters of Western pluralism. Of course, some are — but political correctness also precludes asking Muslim recruits the hard questions that will determine their true loyalty, or at very least put focus on their adherence, or lack of adherence, to the jihad ideology.
“Exclusive: M15 Infiltrated by Al-Qaeda: Muslim recruits suspected,” says the Sunday Mirror, with thanks to Twostellas:
TERRORISTS from al-Qaeda have infiltrated Britain’s security services, the Sunday Mirror can reveal.
Bosses at M15 believe they unwittingly recruited the Muslim extremists after the July 7 suicide bombings in London last year which killed 52 people.
They were signed up as part of a drive to find more Muslims and Arabic speakers to work as spies to help prevent future attacks by Osama bin Laden fantatics.
Spymasters found some of the agents in Britain’s universities and colleges and persuaded them to pass on information about suspected terrorists.
But a senior ministerial source has told the Sunday Mirror: “The truth is that it has now been discovered that some of those people have strong links with al-Qaeda.
“There was always a risk that with such a speedy and widespread recruitment some would turn out to be bad eggs.
“But the recruitment has meant we are now in a much better position to stop al-Qaeda attacks than we have ever been before. Several planned attacks have already been stopped thanks to the high quality of our intelligence.” But the disclosure that suspected terrorists have infiltrated the security services will be a further embarrassment to Government Ministers.
Yes. And it gives a renewed urgency to the necessity to start looking realistically at Islam, jihad, and Sharia.
