And so the rolling absurdity that is modern Britain continues. The British government’s line is that Muslims are “radicalized” by poverty and discrimination, and so therefore showering Muslim communities with money and preferential treatment will take care of the problem in a jiffy. Yet here was a man who was a trusted member of MI5, the British spy agency. He wasn’t alienated from British society — he was part of Britain’s core intelligence apparatus. He was almost certainly not hurting for money, unless he had a lifestyle so lavish that he couldn’t sustain it on his MI5 salary. And yet he turned to jihad anyway.
The willfully ignorant government of David Cameron has absolutely no way to understand this. The only way it could begin to do so would be to depart from its official line and tread into areas it has labeled “hate” and “Islamophobia.” What is one to do if the truth can only be found beyond a fence of one’s own making?
“British double agent ‘plotted to kill his MI5 handler and attack UK’ after infiltrating jihadist group in Syria,” by Duncan Gardham, The Mail On Sunday, March 29, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
An MI5 agent was allegedly recruited by a terrorist mastermind in Syria and sent back to Britain in a plot to launch a devastating attack against his handlers.
The agent was recruited by MI5 as an undercover informant within the radical Islamic community and he then travelled to Syria where he became part of a jihadist group.
But he apparently double-crossed his British handlers and returned to London with plans to launch an ‘insider attack’ in the capital.
The Mail on Sunday has been aware of the alleged plot for more than a year but agreed to previous requests from the security services not to publish the story for ‘national security’ reasons.
Parts of the plot were reported in a story in The Mail on Sunday last year, in which we revealed that the jihadist, who has a British passport, had plans to attack Central London and that David Cameron had been briefed about the details.
This newspaper is aware of the man’s identity and further details of the investigation but are not printing them for legal reasons.
A long undercover operation was run by MI5 to try to identify linked individuals who might be travelling back from Syria to launch similar attacks but this investigation has now concluded, meaning we can now report the fact that he was a potential ‘double agent’….
