From The Times
A Nigerian reported to be studying in Britain allegedly tried to blow up a transatlantic airliner on Christmas Day in what the White House called an attempted act of terrorism.
The suspect, claiming links to al-Qaeda, was taken into custody with burns after allegedly trying to detonate explosives on Northwest Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit.
He was identified by ABC News as Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, an engineering student at University College London. A very, very good college - not one of the visa scam fakes, a world renowned institute.
He was reportedly on a US intelligence “watch-list” but not on the US Government’s no-fly list.
A federal “situational awareness” bulletin said: “The subject is claiming to have extremist affiliation and that the device was acquired in Yemen along with instructions as to when it should be used.”
The suspect began his journey in Nigeria on board KLM Flight 588 and made a connection in Amsterdam on to Northwest 253. According to ABC News his visa stated that he was travelling to the US for a religious ceremony. Initial reports were that he had lit firecrackers on board the Airbus 330, which was carrying 278 passengers.
However, a senior US counter-terrorism official said later that the man had actually been planning to blow up the aircraft but the explosive device had failed.
According to ABC News, the suspect told authorities that he had explosive powder taped to his leg and used a syringe of chemicals to detonate the powder.
The White House last night described the incident as terrorism-related. “We believe this was an attempted act of terrorism,” a White House official said.
"Detroit: America now associates London universities with terror plots and Islamic extremists"
The British government is not providing security to British people, nor to people beyond Britain.
Instead, Britain is subjected to uncontrolled mass immigration from Islamic countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and from countries with substantial Islamic minorities such as Nigeria.
Such massive influxes over the past decade and more, have inevitably included Islamic jihad sympathisers and activists, be they in the guise of foreign 'student' visa entrants, illegal immigrants ,bogus 'asylum seekers' ,or legals.
With a General Election here in a few months, which political party, if any, will be specific on precise measures to give immigration and security issues the priority they need, despite lobbying from Islamic interests?
How is it this suspect was on the FBI watch list for terrorists. Yet the U.K let him in to England to study?
Yet another example of the Goverment in England not defending the English from terrorists suspects and more importantly allowing the terrorists to export there terror from our shores.
We take the threat of Islam4U, Choudry.Hizb-ut-Tahrir and the other groups like them as grave. We will take to the streets to stop them. This will continue to the Goverment ban these groups.
