This plot shows once again that appeasement doesn’t work. The British government has done all it could do to placate Islamic jihadists and supremacists. It has allowed them to preach freely all over the land, while hounding and jailing counter-jihadists on the flimsiest of pretexts, and banning foreign ones from entering the country. It has stigmatized and demonized resistance to jihad terror as “racism” and “bigotry.” It has allowed Muslim rape gangs to victimize thousands of British girls with absolute impunity, allowing those girls no justice or redress. And what does it get for all this? A jihad plot against the Queen. Was it expecting gratitude?
“Isis: Fears of British jihadi VJ Day plot to assassinate the Queen,” by Priya Joshi, International Business Times, August 8, 2015:
British jihadis are reportedly plotting to assassinate the Queen at an event to mark the 70th anniversary of VJ Day – Victory in Japan and the end of the Second World War.
According to The Mail on Sunday, police and MI5 have received intelligence suggesting the assassination plot is being orchestrated from Syria by Islamic State commanders.
The extremist plot is believed to involve explosions using deadly pressure cooker bombs with the intention of causing a high numbers of casualties, as thousands of members of the public are expected to line the streets around Whitehall and Westminster Abbey.
The Mail Online reports that sources have told the publication that a “specific threat was made against the Queen”, prompting an urgent review of security arrangements by Scotland Yard.
Senior members of Scotland Yard’s Royal Protection branch, SO14, have been informed of the threat, along with SO1 Specialist Protection, the unit responsible for the security of the Prime Minister and any dignitaries considered to be ‘under threat from terrorist attack’. The Home Office has also been made aware of the terror plot.
Prince Charles, who is expected to attend the weekend celebrations, is also identified in intelligence reports as another possible target….
