THANK YOU, SCOTLAND YARD
Scotland Yard says it’s disrupted 13 terrorist networks within the past year. The figures are contained in a document prepared for the Metropolitan Police Authority. The document says that some of the Police operations targeted active bomb plots while others were aimed at terrorist fundraisers.
And the Police say that over the last year there was an average of a suspected terrorist incident in London every other day. That’s around 180 “incidents” in the last 12 months.
We haven’t been attacked here since the 7/7/2005 attack. That is clearly largely thanks to the good work of the Police and security services. It is not because the threat has gone away, quite the contrary. And it is not, repeat NOT because the threat is ‘invented’ or exaggerated. It is thanks to our dedicated and hard-working Police Service.
I, for one, want to thank our Police and security services.
BBC Report follows:
During the 12 month period, there was an average of a suspected terrorist incident in London every other day.
There were 181 incidents, slightly up on the previous year’s figure of 177 and police took 4,346 calls on the anti-terrorism hotline.
The figures were revealed in a document prepared for the Metropolitan Police Authority.
Its author Supt Neil Haynes, from Scotland Yard’s Specialist Operations unit, said disrupting a network could involve several features.
“Some cases may result in the foiling of a planned major bombing campaign, others may reduce the funding or resources available to mount such an attack,” he said.
Last November, Jonathan Evans, the Director General of the Security Service MI5, said it was aware of about 2,000 people involved in terrorist-related activity in the UK, and there could possibly be a further 2,000 it was unaware of.
This year Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, said there were 200 terror networks and 30 plots under investigation.
We should bear in mind that Jonathan Evans believes the people involved in terrorist-related activity could be DOUBLE the 2000 they already know about.
ABU HAMZA REFUSED LEAVE TO APPEAL AGAINST EXTRADITION
Today the extremist Muslim cleric Abu Hamza, who is currently serving a seven year sentence, has been refused leave to appeal to the House of Lords against his extradition to the United States on terrorism charges. That’s not to say he won’t be at the European Courts before we know it claiming the contravention of his “human rights” or some such. (After all – they might waterboard him in America!)
That’s the usual tactic; blame another democratic state for the anti-democratic behaviour of misfits. Wonder if that nonsense will be swallowed by the European Courts?
Attractive character, isn’t he. OK, OK, I know I mustn’t judge by appearances. I need to look inside and see the real man – the warmth, the love, the respect …
Yeah, still looking. I’ll get back to you when I find them. Promise.
I do hate to go on about these threats, so this time I’m going to make sure this post is balanced by including a pro and anti Islam link.
This one is the anti:
And here’s the pro:
