Burying in Bad Taste

THE arrests of nine men over the alleged plot to kidnap a Muslim serving in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and then behead him in an al-Zarqawi-style Islamist snuff movie has been extensively covered over at Western Resistance. The revelations that Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed’s poisonous rantings might be behind the alleged plot are of little surprise. In the aftermath of the 7/7 massacre, Bakri notoriously told the Evening Standard:

‘I blame the British Government, the British public and the Muslim community in the UK [for the attacks] because they failed to make the extra effort to put an end to the cycle of bloodshed which started before 9/11 and on July 7 was devastating for everybody.’
Before his permanent vacation in Lebanon began in August 2005 his repeated refusal to condemn Islamist atrocities against civilians had become well known. Indeed, if Britain was still a serious country with a patriotic government then several steely-eyed agents would already have been dispatched to Beirut to silence the nut-bag permanently.
From the welter of consternation over the increasing ruthlessness of this implacable enemy within also emerges the ghastly prospect that surreptitious media briefings regarding Operation Gamble were held by the Home Office in which - without police consent - secret operational details were discussed in a crass attempt to direct public attention away from the bloody great mess the government has got itself and the country into.
