Protect Our Borders from Syria and Iraq Jihadists

Protect Our Borders from Syria and Iraq Jihadists
by Enza Ferreri

Why should people who take a bus or Tube train in London be in fear for their lives from a bomb attack? Is it right that air passengers should be afraid of terror threats when they board a plane and also be subjected to continuous disruptions for the same reason?

Every day we hear news of more young Muslims — often born and bread in the UK but not “British” in any true sense of the word — travelling to Iraq and Syria to join groups fighting in a jihad (Islamic holy war) to establish an Islamic state over there. These Muslims also promise to come back to Britain and create a climate of terror over here.

Their threats have to be taken with the utmost seriousness: we have seen from media reports and internet videos how ruthless these fighters are with the lives of others and how determined they are to ethnically cleanse the Middle East of Christians.

Despite Prime Minister David Cameron’s empty reassurances that Britain will not ignore this security threat, former MI6 director of global counter-terrorism Richard Barrett has said the numbers are too high and the security services won’t be able to monitor all the jihadists returning to the UK. It is “out of the question”, he added.

Top counter-terrorism expert Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police’s assistant commissioner and head of specialist operations, has warned that Britain will live with the consequences of Syria and the rise of Islamic extremism within its own borders “for many, many years to come”.

The jihadists returning from Syria, due to its relative vicinity to Europe, are considered “the biggest threat to Britain’s security” and a “greater threat than al-Qaeda terrorists in Pakistan and Afghanistan”. The British Home Office identifies Syria as “the most significant development in global terrorism.”

Charles Farr — the Home Office’s terror chief — and others warned that the Syrian war is stoking the biggest terror threat to the West since September 11, and this problem is predicted to persist for as long as the hostilities will continue.

It is simply foolish to believe that the threat is minimal or behind us. So far we’ve just been lucky

Sir Malcolm Rifkind, Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee — which oversees the UK’s intelligence agencies — wrote that new measures increasing security checks at airports are “unavoidable” because jihadists are deploying “devilish technical skill” to create ever more sophisticated devices to evade existing security measures.

He wrote that he had encountered a level of complacency among some elements of the public which he found “seriously disturbing”, adding:

“It is simply foolish to believe that the threat is either minimal or now behind us. We have, indeed, been fortunate but, sadly, this has not been because the terrorists have, since 2005, given up trying to do us harm. As Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, has made clear, each year there have been serious plots which if they had not been identified and disrupted would have led to the deaths and mutilation of many British citizens.

“The police and the security services have been very successful but we must not underestimate the devilish technical skill of those terrorists who design ever more sophisticated means of concealing explosives in mobile devices, in clothing and in otherwise innocent objects. They have been hard at work over the last year.”

Only last week Britain’s airports were put on a new terror alert following intelligence warnings that al Qaeda’s chief bomb maker — Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, who is now said to have sworn allegiance to ISIS — had linked up with jihadists in Syria to pass on his skills.

It couldn’t be clearer that these people mean business. Some “British” Syria fighters have admitted preparing to carry out terrorist acts.

Possible links have also been found between three Muslims based in Cardiff, Wales — Isis militants who were present in a propaganda video filmed by the group — and two other men from the same part of the city, who are in prison for having planned to blow up London’s Stock Exchange.

Black flag of Islam over Downing Street

A “British” jihadist has warned of the “black flag of Islam” flying over Downing Street and Buckingham Palace.

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the “Caliph” of the Islamic State spreading between Iraq and Syria, has promised support to “oppressed” Muslims everywhere and told his soldiers: “You will conquer Rome and own the world”. Islam supporters hacked a Facebook page dedicated to Pope Francis and filled it with vulgar and offensive words and images: just a warning about things to come.

There is no doubt that militant Islam is on the rise in the world, and we’ll ignore it at our own peril.

We must protect our borders from these would-be terrorists

We must protect our own borders. It’s suicidal to allow would-be terrorists who have already shown their allegiance to violent jihad and acted on it to return to Britain, when top intelligent and security experts have made it clear that we cannot accurately monitor this threat once inside the country.

The party Liberty GB has among its party policies the only measure that would guarantee a greater safety for British people:

“Stop from returning to the UK anyone, including British citizens, who has left the country to fight alongside or support Muslim militias or jihadist groups abroad.”

  1. A policy of no re-admittance to jihadists from anywhere in the middle east or Pakstan/Afghanistan makes sense and if necessary we should do this unilaterally, regardless of what the dhimmis in Brussells tell us. If they can’t get in, they can’t cause trouble. There is a precedent for this. One “Sheikh” Omar Bakri Mohammed, also known as the Tottenham Ayatollah was refused re-entry to the UK after temporarily de-camping to the Lebanon to escape arrest . He has never been allowed to return in spite of a robust campaign by various UK islamic advocacy groups.

  2. How come we faced off the IRA without all this surveillance and electronics? We used means “analogue” and human to defeat them and they were far more sophisticated than the Moslems and clever.

    Another reason was that Irish travellers suspected or known IRA operatives were profiled, singled out and searched. I am more than certain that if the same applique was used to target Moslems then all this ridiculousity of searching old dears and even babies of even ordinary people would work to all our benefit.

    The public would also be far more supportive and careful. Yet I have seen with mine own eyes at Heathrow, women in burkas waived through without being stopped or even asked to remove garments and shoes, while my wife a harmless Panamanian housewife and nurse was searched twice on the same occasion. Why?

    (Must have been that Panamanian accent they suspected. Dangerous people Panamanian Latinas you see! They marry Englishmen and have stable families and well brought up Christian children)

    I have to say that while one agrees there is a real threat- a nasty threat- one has a deep suspicion that the “authorities” either trying to be “PC” by not selecting Moslems for search because that would be “Waycist”, or they have their own agenda to make it as difficult as posible for people to travel.

    Did you know that they plan to search all passengers on commuter trains to London in the same manner? There is even talk of making people apply for travel across the country and Europe, before they can purchase tickets. Think of the chaos that would cause? In the US TSA alrady target bus stations.

    We all know that Police and “Security” is exponentially increasing across the West-well in some parts anyway like UK and USA- but I think people need to look far more deeply as to why this is happening and its goal. Ask oneself for example, why is NATO funding and training ISIS from whence the very threat comes?

    It is like pointing a gun at oneself threatening to shoot then blaming another, trying to talk you out of committing suicide for one’s own actions. This line of thought is very much in keeping with Islam too and Marxism.

    The victim must submit without resistance or be killed- It is their fault. Nobody must even think thoughts that posit resistance to Islam- all must submit even if it kills you and destroys one’s culture.

    It is the same in Marxism and they expect its victims to celebrate their assimilation into this wicked ideology. Normal human feelings of anger, fear and the desire to defend agaist what is perceived as evil are simply not allowed. In many ways the paranoid security and the actions of the terrorist seem to work hand in glove….perfectly coordinated and aligned against its victims-Us….

  3. By the time the government is woken from it’s slumber it will be too late for Great Britain.

    It makes me sad, the country that basically drove the West to prominence and spread Christianity across the world is doomed by it’s government’s stupidity.

  4. What Britain will be living with for decades and centuries is not the consequences of Syria and jihaists returning therefrom so much as the consequences of the treason committed by the politically correct governing and bureaucratic clique, [phallocephalic] Cressida Dick of the Met Police, who persecuted Tommy Robinson, being a prime example.

    • She’s Commom Purpose through and through

      Nickname even in her own force-

      “Ms PCCP” or “The Brazil Nut”

  5. Reading through Sir Malcolm Rifkind article the reminder is of the moral and political bankruptcy of Rifkind’s free markets and open borders at all costs economics. Rifkind has a “devilish technical skill” with words that historically misleads the reader and places the provocation of jihadist terrorism as being of the “complacency amongst some of the public which is seriously disturbing”.

    Yes Mr Rifkind some of us do remember that golden age before 100 splendid imams were applauded by our notable public figures and British souls were not sold out to evil.

  6. “ … the Americans have been trying, albeit unsuccessfully, to put pressure on the Israelis to stop building new settlements on Palestinian territory.” – Sir Malcolm Rifkind

    So Israeli “settlements on Palestinian territory” are the cause of British Jihadism thought that was an argument of the multikulti left, Mr Rifkind should be aware that Jihadism predates the modern State of Israel.

    • Being a Scottish-Jew he should be even more aware of it, and very probably is.
      You are correct in your previous post about his skill with words. I remember him when he was a minister in the last Tory government, I never saw anyone better him in a debate or pin him down in an argument. A very effective politician, unfortunately not on our side.

  7. The solution is simple, jail them as members of known terrorist groups. Then you can watch them. Too few places in jail? Let out the ‘trolls’ and bacon placers and other PC ‘criminals’. Hopefully, as new recruits die more quickly than veterans, a lot of them won’t make it back.

  8. What is so different about the UK from France, Netherlands or the USA? Does anyone have an idea how many Muslim Jihadis got into the US just within the last month of overt sabotage by the BHO adminstration with a cheering amen lobby of megazillionaires , “conservative” and liberal alike? Who is trying to find out the percentage of Muslims in nuke-armed France? The unofficial grapevine says 12%.

    Let’s not get lost in superficial differences, i.e. the different ethnic or economic profile of the Muslim community in each of those countries. The larger picture is that the political, economic and cultural ruling class of the entire West, i.e. erstwhile white people’s domain, has become an alien, hostile force profoundly engaged in destroying its serf population. The rest is just logistic details.

  9. Cressida Dick on the case? She was the clown who organised the shooting of the innocent Brazilian electrician (got promoted shortly afterwards) Doesn’t that fill everyone with confidence?

  10. Political Correctness must be dealt with and removed from the minds and hearts of the West’s indigenous people. Only then will the escape from Islamification be possible.

  11. I STRONGLY suspect that the ” leadership” of England–from Bonny Prince Charlie down to most of the Sirs, Earls, Barons, and Earls–plus many in Parliament are ‘secret muzzies’.
    They snuck off to some pislamic sewer to take the shahada oath in secret sometime since 1973.
    This will allow them to keep all their titles and lands, and even INCREASE them when comes the Umma–so they PLAN.
    As far as the average Brit–screw him. He has to pay to support all those extra kids and wives on the dole, after all.

  12. The red-bearded fiend on the right hand side of the photo looks familiar. Isn’t this the mutt that got lots of attention during the recent ISIS concert tour? The smiley-face with nothing behind it but worthy of mention because of the henna-coloured beard?
