    Our way of life is tolerant, spirited and full of humour. We should make no apologies for fighting the moral descendants of Stalin and Hitler who would destroy it On a rare dry evening last week I walked to a meeting in London. The streets were full and the pubs overflowing with drinkers, many of whom are on the pavements because of the smoking ban: people having a good time at the end of an average working day, smiling and joshing each other. Too often we forget that we have built a successful and good-natured society over the last 10...
  • Car bombs are linked with Iraq’s Al-Qaeda

    Times Online ^ | July 8, 2007 | David Leppard
    AT least one of the suspects being quizzed over the alleged plot to set off car bombs in Britain was in recent contact with Al-Qaeda in Iraq, senior security officials said yesterday. Scotland Yard’s Counter Terrorism Command SO15 is understood to have uncovered evidence that in the months leading up to the attacks one or more of the suspects communicated by telephone or e-mail with terrorist leaders in Iraq. The development has fuelled a theory that the failed attacks in London and Glasgow were designed as a farewell to Tony Blair to punish him for his role in Iraq. Details...

    Bombing plots ‘were carried out with bin Laden’s blessing’ The London and Glasgow bomb plots were carried out with the approval of Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader, a top foreign intelligence source said last night. “It was an established fact from Day 1 that al-Qaeda was behind this and it was planned by its followers in Great Britain with bin Laden’s blessing,” the source told The Times. British security officials were more guarded, saying that it was too early to say whether the plot was masterminded by some foreign hand or hatched in Britain. The warning an al-Qaeda leader...

    Only at the tail end of the coverage was it admitted that a car bomb might have been parked outside a club in Piccadilly because it was "ladies night" and that this explosion might have been designed to lure people into to the street, the better to be burned and shredded by the succeeding explosion from the second car-borne cargo of gasoline and nails. Since we have known since 2004 that a near-identical attack on a club called the Ministry of Sound was proposed in just these terms, on the grounds that dead "slags" or "sluts" would be regretted by...

    Britain's terror alert took a fresh twist today as police seized gas canisters and arrested two men in a raid in Lancashire.

In the raid in Blackburn, two men were arrested at an industrial estate in Blackburn on suspicion of terror offences. Both are being held at a police station in Lancashire on suspicion of offences under the Terrorism Act 2000, but a spokesman said it is too early to confirm whether the arrests are linked to the failed bomb...

The New York Times, ever vigilant to explain the news in ways that comport with its editorial line, takes the lead. “The idea of a multiple attack using car bombs,” reports Alan Cowell on the paper’s front page, has “raised concerns among security experts that jihadist groups linked to al Qaeda may have imported tactics more familiar in Iraq.” “Imported tactics more familiar in Iraq”?

It is interesting and it is also worrying that this attack has taken place in Glasgow because up until yesterday (Saturday) all the successful attacks were only in London. Now suddenly we have Glasgow. It seems clear that in these particular attacks, both in London and the one in Glasgow, there is a Scottish connection. Of course, Gordon Brown, the new prime minister is also of Scottish origin. There was intelligence...

    The investigation of the latest terror plot to target the United Kingdom is very fluid. Right now, the headlines are these: There have been at least three attempted car-bomb attacks, the perpetrators were Islamic radicals, five people are in custody, and the police have searched various places in England and Scotland. Many questions remain, the most pressing being: Have there been other attempts that have not yet been revealed publicly? Are additional attacks likely? Is this an al Qaeda operation? What has triggered it at this particular time? To deal first with what we know, there were two attempted bombings...

    Police check Bluewater gang’s links to attempt to bomb clubs (July 1, 2007) David Leppard and Dipesh Gadher Detectives hunting the West End car bombers believe the suspects are most likely to be home-grown extremists linked to an overlapping network of terrorist cells implicated in previous plots against British targets. Some may be known to police and be on the run after escaping Home Office control orders. Those in the frame may be associates of the so-called Crevice gang, which planned to attack the Ministry of Sound nightclub in central London and the Bluewater shopping mall in Kent. Members of...

    Koran: Surah 2: The Cow 12. Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. 191 13. War is ordained by Allah. 216” London Mayor Ken Livingstone commended Muslims by and large for being civil. In that commendation, however, he should have called on civil Muslims to speak out vigorously, daily against Allah fanatics. It is not enough to commend those Muslims who are attempting to make a new life in free nations. Those Muslims must now be told to speak up on behalf of those free nations in which...

    Beware America. Brit's PM Gordon Browns just stated that his country is "dealing with terrorists" connected with Al Qaeda. Further, Lord Stevens, terrorism counsel, informs media that "Baghdad and Bali" terrorism has now entered Britain. America will be next. "These killers are known as "paintball jihadists" in that they practice in paintball game style what they have planned for America’s streets. They are already training others in "urban combat" using paintball guns. They will engage in paramilitary-style training right under our noses, and lie about it to our faces. They are protected, in some cases, by the religious Imams, some...

    Homeland Security: The London bomb plot reminds us that terrorists never rest. Like gnats, they keep coming in the hopes we'll tire of swatting them. They have to get lucky just once. We have to be lucky all the time. In Piccadilly Circus, only a stroke of good luck prevented an explosion that could have toppled a three-story nightclub and killed hundreds. Authorities had no inkling terrorists planned to blow up cars packed with petro bombs and nails. An ambulance crew tipped off police after noticing vapors building up inside one of them, a Mercedes parked outside a popular nightclub.

    MPACUK: Car Bomb May Have Been Planted by MEMRI At the UK’s Muslim Public Affairs Committee web site, a commenter thinks this may be a “marketing stunt.”By MEMRI. Or some other “Israeli front group.” Lets wait and see if this was:1) organised by misguided non-believers chanting “Islam” and retaliating for the murderous foreign policies of Blair.OR2) was organised as a marketing stunt by SANE, MEMRI, or another unofficial branch of the IDF Intelligence section.Whoever it was, it is very scary to think that the war is being brought to our streets just because Britain has taken part in the murders...

"We will not yield, we will not be intimidated,'' he said in an interview with BBC television, after his government raised the national security level to "critical'' following the attacks. He said terrorism "can never be justified as an act of faith'',
