British Jihad Update from The Daily Telegraph, with thanks to all who sent this in:
A HUSBAND and wife arrested in the British terror raids allegedly planned to take their six-month-old baby on a mid-air suicide mission.
Scotland Yard police are quizzing Abdula Ahmed Ali, 25, and his 23-year-old wife Cossor over suspicions they were to use their baby’s bottle to hide a liquid bomb.
The theory is one of the reasons security chiefs are now insisting mothers taste babies’ milk at check-in desks before allowing them to take bottles aboard flights….
It has also been revealed that security services are secretly monitoring “dozens” of fresh plots involving hundreds of suspects which could be unleashed at any time.
One government source said at least 30 priority cases were under urgent investigation.
“All those 30 are seen as serious, determined attacks that will happen unless we stop them,” the source said….
A neighbour at the flats where the married couple lived said he would be stunned if claims were true.
“I simply cannot believe he could have been involved in a plot like this. He is religious and seemed to love his family,” the neighbour said.
“He is religious.” No one has ever told Neighbour, evidently, that the jihadists are generally quite religious people. That is not news fit to print in PC Britain.
“I would never have dreamed he could have been involved in anything like this.”
A family friend of Cossor said she had known the arrested mother 12 years and believed her to be innocent.
“I think it is a case of mistaken identity. The last thing she’d be interested in is terrorism. They are just simple day-to-day people going about their own business,” she said.
Of course. Aren’t they always.
