Terror in Britain: What did the Prime Minister Know?

Great article by John Pilger, but I do resent him referring to Gaddafi as a “dictator” in the pejorative sense, as if every country didn’t have one or more dictators. A “pure democracy” as it is commonly understood is a myth. – PC

The unsayable in Britain’s general election campaign is this. The causes of the Manchester atrocity, in which 22 mostly young people were murdered by a jihadist, are being suppressed to protect the secrets of British foreign policy.

Critical questions – such as why the security service MI5 maintained terrorist “assets” in Manchester and why the government did not warn the public of the threat in their midst – remain unanswered, deflected by the promise of an internal “review”.

The alleged suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, was part of an extremist group, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, that thrived in Manchester and was cultivated and used by MI5 for more than 20 years.

The LIFG is proscribed by Britain as a terrorist organisation which seeks a “hardline Islamic state” in Libya and “is part of the wider global Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by al-Qaida”.

The “smoking gun” is…

    Pilger is generally one of the better reporters.
    However, I think that as regards the Manchester bombing, the man responsible was very well known to the security services. He had just returned from Syria, and was considered to be a radicalized Islamist. So, did those same security services ‘allow’ him to carry out this outrage? I would guess, yes. It came at an appropriate time, with an election looming. It therefore reinforced hatred against Muslims in this country, and guaranteed a nationalist agenda would dominate the election.
    Over here, that is considered to be a ‘conspiracy theory’. I make no apologies for that.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    There is no doubt in my mind that the Izlamik State would love to see a hard line Shariah-controlled state in Libyia, in The United Kingdom and all over the world for that matter because that is who they are. By the way I am of the opinion that even though they are not saying it, the “Moderate” (Choke, wheeze, cough, sneeze, hack, spit) Muslims would probably love to see the same thing although I don’t think we are ever going to hear any of “Them” say anything like that.

    The question that I want answered is, “What did the Muslim Mayor of London know and when did he know it and why is he taking such a relaxed and (to my way of thinking) cavalier attitude about the terror at the gates of his 30% Muslim city? In my mind there is something chilling about such a calm demeanor in the face of such a threat as this mayor is facing …. unless of course, there is some unseen or unspoken attitude there that would be tolerant of the idea of terrorism as a new normal … in such a predominately “Infidel” setting as The U.K.

    Just asking.
