Muslim Islamic NewsTwo Bs Are Serial Killers

By Yvonne Ridley

13 August 2006

I flew in to London from Malaysia the other day to find a prolific number of armed cops from the trigger-happy Metropolitan Police Force patrolling Heathrow Airport's terminal buildings.

My driver was stuck in a two-hour traffic jam on the outskirts of London and so, like thousands of others, I was stranded.

Scores of flights were cancelled, passengers stuck at the end of their journey or, perhaps more furstratingly, thousands more were hanging around the airport - unable to start their journey.

I'd never seen anything like it ... well, not since February 2003 when there were Army tanks and khaki soldiers parading around Britain's busiest airport.

Of course it was too good to be true that the Blair junta had finally been ousted in a military coup!

Blair had sent the Army to Heathrow to make us all feel terrified about the threat of terror.

I'm really not quite sure what to make of this latest incident, but the 2003 debacle was done purely to scare the hell out of everybody and make us all believe that we were about to be blown up by one of Usama bin Ladin's bombs.

It actually had the reverse affect and we all had a good chuckle at the expense of Tony Blair's government.

But this is the trouble with Blair's Britain - we've been taken to the wire just one too many times to be convinced that a terrorist attack is really in the offing.

This isn't just the view of Muslims, but of all Brits who are fed up of having their freedoms and liberties trampled on by Bush and Blair.

Our stiff upper lips are beginning to quiver as we desperately try to keep a straight face.

The two Bs have become just like the 'Little Boy Who Cried Wolf' ... quite frankly, we no longer believe them. Both are serial liars with plenty of previous form.

The two were said to be in deep discussions over the previous weekend about this "imminent" terrorist attack. 

Really, Mr Blair? So why did you still take off on holiday with your family for Barbados on Tuesday? And given that the plot is said to have targeted planes, why did the security services allow you to go? 

And if the threat warranted raising the terror alert in the UK from "severe" to "critical" and to code red in the US, why were no arrests made for five days? And why was the terror alert only raised after the arrests were made and not before?

Sadly, no such questions have been asked by the media on both sides of the Atlantic.

In what could have been a comedy of errors if the outcome was not so tragic, we have witnessed a series of paranoid outbursts from Tony BLIAR designed to put the fear of God into us all.

Apart from the murder of Brazilian student Jean Charles de Menezes who was shot in the head seven times on the Underground last July, because Metropolitan Police were convinced he was a Muslim terrorist (he had an olive skin, M'lud!), there has been a catalogue of other costly mistakes by Islamophobic cops and British intelligence egged on by Blair's government.

We were all momentarily stunned when Scottish police announced they had arrested a gang of Algerians who were about to blow up Edinburgh during the height of the New Year celebrations. These evil doers were all hardened terrorists, a significant Al-Qaida cell, according to the government.

Funny how the cops went very quiet when all nine Algerians were released on common bail less than three weeks later and a few weeks after that the police investigation was ditched altogether.

Barely had we recovered from that when we had the so-called Ricin plot - another group of Algerians rounded up and accused of planning to smear shopping trolleys with this deadly poison. Although quite why al-Qaida would want to target housewives in a North London hypermarket was beyond me. The case was thrown out once the judge and jury stopped laughing.

We were all bent double after the plot to blow up Old Trafford soccer stadium, beloved home of Manchester United, was uncovered. We were told by a po-faced officer of the law that his particular dastardly plan was hatched by a group of Iraqi Kurds who'd fled from Saddam. I think it's still an arrestable offence in Manchester to remind the local police of that faux pas.

Let's not forget the Dirty Bombers ... another farce brought to you by the Metropolitan Police who make the Keystone Kops look like hard-nosed crime busters.

The Met, and several other police forces, have raided and trashed more than 3000 homes involving the arrests of more than 1000 Muslims since 9/11 with hardly anyone charged or even more importantly, convicted of terrorist offences.

Then of course we had the East London raid involving 250 of the men from the Met which ended in an innocent, unarmed brother being shot in the chest.

So please forgive me for not quaking in my boots over this latest terrorist plot to blow us all to tiny pieces. Yes, the claims are quite spectacular but huge lies are the trademark of the spin doctors of terror working in the White House and Downing Street.

Former NSA employee turned investigative journalist Wayne Madsen wrote only a couple of days ago that British law enforcement; neo-con and intelligence operatives in the United States, Israel, and Britain; and Rupert Murdoch's global media empire have cooked up this latest terrorist plot.

In a column written on this site he reckons they copied the failed 1995 "Oplan Bojinka" plot by Pakistan- and Philippines-based terrorist Ramzi Ahmad Yousef to crash 11 trans-Pacific airliners bound from Asia to the United States. 

And, of course, it doesn't help when we discover the intelligence has been fed from Pakistan - the 51st state of the US, and the country whose corrupt ISI intelligence service has helped fill the cages of Guantanamo Bay with innocent young brothers.

We can only imagine what methods the ISI used to extract information from the brothers they are holding. As I've said many times before, if anyone came near me with so much as a three pin plug I'd start singing like a canary if I knew what tune my torturers wanted to hear.

Now, as a result of this latest terror swoop we are witnessing the usual outrageous headlines which only serve to prove that the Columbian White Marching powder is still being hoovered up the nostrils of Fleet Street journalists and other media outlets in the West.

There's been a huge disruption of commercial flights resulting from extreme security measures since the arrests in Britain and Pakistan, and I have no doubt that more raids will follow in America as well. Watch this space!

Of course we were told the arrests were the result of a long-standing investigation coordinated between the US, British and Pakistani governments. British Home Secretary John Reid looked stony-faced as he said Prime Minister Tony Blair had briefed President George Bush on the impending arrests and security measures over the weekend.

We were later told the plotters had planned to target simultaneously up to ten aircraft from three US carriers by smuggling onboard liquid chemical explosives disguised as beverages or electronic devices.

US intelligence officials joined in the fun by announcing the gang had hoped to stage a "dry run" on Friday and the actual attack would have followed days later. A senior Congressional source claimed the plotters planned to mix a sports drink with a peroxide-based paste to make an "explosive cocktail" that could be triggered by an MP3 player or cell phone.

All of these press conferences were calculated to heighten public anxieties and exploit the alleged terror plot to take our minds off Lebanon, the forthcoming US elections and the fact Tony Blair was going swanning off on another holiday freebie while his Israeli friends continue to bomb the hell out of Lebanon and Gaza.

The US President, speaking from a windswept airport runway in Green Bay, Wisconsin, said that the thwarted plot was a "stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom." 

Islamic fascists? I wonder who cooked up that new phrase for Mr President.

Freedom? Hmm, yes I remember the F word. Freedom has been used and abused to justify the bombing of Afghanistan and Iraq. Freedom will no doubt be used as an excuse to strike Syria and Iran.

Freedom was something we all enjoyed at home in the US and UK before Bush and Blair brought us domestic spying, military tribunals, internment, detentions without trial and pre-emptive strikes. Oh we should be soooo grateful that the two Bs have done all of this in our name to protect us.

Well I think we do need protecting - from those two Christian extremists who are running our countries.

After all, shouldn't we at least have some information enabling us to make a definitive judgment on the existence or non-existence of a terrorist plot on the scale claimed?

Surely it is the responsibility of the US and British governments to give facts that would substantiate their allegations and justify the extreme security measures they have taken, and to present these facts to the public in a clear and concise manner?

Why the hell should we accept their claims at face value, or place confidence in any of their statements?

Bush and Blair lied about the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, peace in the Middle East, the Road Map, WMD and many other domestic issues especially with regards to the War on Terror.

Bush and Blair are serial killers, serial liars and serial psychopaths.

Now if for one moment their latest accusations and revelations are true about another 9/11-style attack are true then surely we have to ask why. Wasn't the War on Terror designed to make the world a safer place?

The reality is our world is less safe than ever and if Britain or America is hit by terrorists we will all know the reason why. These sort of atrocities will have roots among the bombed out homes of innocent civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon.

So if there is another terrorist strike in Britain or America, can I suggest the security services go with cuffs and leg irons straight to the White House and Downing Street.

The two Bs need to be stopped now ... before their genocidal policies do any more harm.
