Radical UK Muslims helping Taliban: Report

London: A section of radical British Muslims are providing the Taliban with electronic devices to make roadside bombs for attacks against the US-led Nato forces in Afghanistan, media reports claimed on Saturday. 

The devices, which enable Taliban fighters to detonate bombs by remote control, are either sent to sympathisers in neighbouring countries or carried in by volunteers who flew to Pakistan and crossed the border into Afghanistan, ‘The Daily Telegraph’ newspaper claimed.

Details of how British electronic components had been found in roadside bombs were given to David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, when he visited British troops at their military compound at Lashkagar, in Afghanistan, this week.

In a briefing on operations by Brig Gordon Messenger, the Royal Marine commander of the British battlegroup, Miliband was shown samples of the home-made devices that were being used in attacks.

They included mobile phones filled with explosives used to attack foot patrols and more powerful devices used against vehicles

  1. In an unposted article today in London’s Daily Mail, David Williams reports on a dossier presented on behalf of Home Secretary David Blunkett to a Special Immigration Appeals Commission. The dossier “admits that Britain was a safe haven for supporters of worldwide terrorism and … says Britain remains a ‘significant base’ for supporting terrorism.” Most chilling to Williams is the list of attacks that Islamists living in Britain are accused of supporting:

    1995/96, Algerian terror attacks on French cities;
    1997, attacks in Algeria;
    1998, suicide bombings on U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania;
    1998, planned attack on U.S. embassy in Albanian capital Tirana;
    1998, attacks in Jordan;
    1999, attempted attack on Los Angeles International Airport;
    2000, planned bombing in Strasbourg;
    2001 planned attack in Paris;
    2001, assassination of Afghan Northern Alliance leader Ahmad Shah Masood;
    2001, the Al Qaeda September 11 suicide hijackings in New York and Washington;
    2002/2003, planned attack by North African terrorists in Britain. .

    Williams omitted other instances of British-based terrorism.

    Yemen: Several young British Muslims (including Mohammed Mustafa Kamel, son of Abu Hamza al-Masri), took part in a 1999 hostage seizure that led to four deaths.
    Israel: An attack by Asif Muhammad Hanif on Mike’s Place in Tel Aviv on April 30, 2003, killing 3 and wounding 50.
    Pakistan: Omar Sheikh engaged in various acts of terrorism in Pakistan, including the murder of Daniel Pearl.
    United States: Richard Reid’s attempt to blow up an American Airlines jet in December 2001.
    Kenya: The anti-terrorism police arrested and deported Graham Andrew Adams, a British national who converted to Islam at the age of 18 and is also known as Ahmad Halid Adams, on suspicion of possessing illegal arms, including hand grenades. (December 19, 2007)

  2. it can now be argued that the biggest threat to U.S. security emanates not from Iran or Iraq or Afghanistan—but rather from Great Britain, our closest ally

  3. The sooner we are rid of these racist Islamophiles the better,our streets will be a lot cleaner,thats for sure,the European Human Rights act is valid throughout Europe,so why do the Europeans have no problem deporting these racist scum from their countries,while our government just quotes human rights laws and lets them get on with spewing their racial hatred,untouched?

  4. The British should pack these Muslim ratbags in a giant garbage scow, and send them on permanent vacation in the Bermuda triangle.
