The Home Counties ‘white widow’ of a 7/7 bomber was accused yesterday of being the main financier of a terror plot to kill hundreds of British tourists in Kenya.Well done the security services, but it just goes to highlight a growing problem in our midst with homegrown terrorists residing within closed communities in our midst. The 7/7 bombers were all born here, along with the South-West café bomber, the shoe bomber and the Swedish car bomber along with the two attempted suicide bombers who targeted Israel.
Soldier’s daughter Samantha Lewthwaite planned to use a deadly cocktail of bombs to target tourists in Mombasa, a court in the Indian Ocean resort heard.
Police believe 28-year-old Lewthwaite from Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, and British accomplice Jermaine Grant were days away from carrying out their attack before he was arrested.
Grant, a Muslim convert, went on trial for his role in the alleged Al Qaeda-linked plot yesterday.
Lewthwaite, who was seven months’ pregnant when her husband Jermaine Lindsay detonated a bomb that killed himself and 26 others on July 7, 2005, was travelling in East Africa on a false passport when she was arrested with Grant five months ago.
She fled and is now being hunted by the CIA, Scotland Yard and Kenyan police and is thought to be in hiding in Somalia.
There is no doubt in my mind that we have allowed a very dangerous totalitarian creed masquerading as a religion to take root in this country and start churning out converted homegrown fanatics who hate us and our way of life.The government is of course in denial, as are the liberal and hard left, both fifth columns in their own right.
I have stated in the past that the problem is not the doing of all Muslims, most who simply want to get on with their lives, however it's becoming increasingly obvious that even those "harmless" Muslims cannot do anything about the monsters and extremists in their midst, nor seem to want too either. It's either fear or cultural, but it's also blatantly obvious that the larger these communities grow the worse the problem gets.
I'm firmly of the opinion that there is no place for Islam in a civilised society., the problem is though that it's getting to the stage where peaceful solutions are slipping away daily...
