Here’s a fresh report from the frontlines of Eurabia: Erick Stakelbeck interviews jihadists in London. “London’s Islamic Radicals Speak Out,” by Erick Stakelbeck for CBN News, February 9:
Great Britain recently raised its terror alert to “severe” following reports that al Qaeda was plotting new attacks.
But Britain may be facing an even greater threat from within — one the British government helped to create.
CBN News recently traveled to London to interview a number of leading Islamic radicals who have settled there with the full knowledge of the British government.
All Eyes on London
Just one year before attempting to blow up an airliner over Detroit, Christmas Day bombing suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab studied engineering at University College London.
During his stay there, he networked with known Islamic radicals. Security sources believe he may have linked up with al Qaeda.
Abdulmutallab is just one of many Islamic terrorists with ties to London. Some live there with help from the state.
One example is Yasser al-Sirri, who faces a death sentence in Egypt.
Then there is Anjem Choudary. To date, he has not been charged with terrorism, but his pro-jihad views have led some to call him Great Britain’s most hated man.
“Many people love the idea of jihad, you know?” Choudary told CBN News. “And they want to engage in it.”
A radical Islamist can find a little bit of everything in London. Ex-jihadists, current jihadists, “wannabe” jihadists: they’re all there. So how did this happen?
During the 1980s and 1990s, British authorities granted asylum to a number of Islamic terrorists wanted in their home countries.
“All of this happened under the assumption that if you allowed these people to operate in London, if you allowed them to do whatever they wanted to do, they would not be attacking Britain,” terrorism expert Peter Neumann explained….
And that assumption, of course, comes from the pandemic willful ignorance regarding the jihad doctrine within Islam.
