Prince William’s hug for woman caught up in 7th July 2005 bombings ‘as a 14-year-old schoolgirl’ after he listens to her heart-wrenching speech.

Britain fell silent for a minute’s silence in their honour this morning, wreathes were laid at the memorial in Hyde Park, and the dead were honoured at a service at St Paul’s Cathedral.2A4B977B00000578-3151879-image-a-108_1436261117321

Across London, commuters and grieving families left poignant floral tributes close to where each of the four bombs exploded, near Aldgate, Edgware Road and Kings Cross stations, and at Tavistock Square, where the fourth bomb was detonated on board a bus.

The Nazi’s never broke us – nor did Irish terrorism, and we’ll never give way to Islamic extremism or any other terrorist fanatical group.  I raise my two fingers to all you terrorist scum – just as the defiant British archers did at Agincourt.   Yours_Aye.

‘Mommy – I wanna come home’

‘I don’t want to be a jihadi… I want to come home’: How dozens of British Muslims who went to Syria to join ISIS ‘plead to return to UK after becoming disillusioned with the conflict’article-2744620-198CB79600000578-945_308x360

Some of those who signed up to fight have now contacted authorities in Britain saying they have had enough of the war-zone and want to return home. A man representing a group of 30 militants reportedly contacted King’s College London’s International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR), telling them his group want to return to Britain.

Pictured right are Mohammed el-Araj (left) and Abu Hujama al-Britani (right), both from London, who died fighting with extremists.         And the more that follow them the better…1409898243644_wps_97_A_member_loyal_to_the_IslAn armed ISIS member parades through the streets of Raqqa, Syria, waving a jihadist flag. It is said that some Britons fighting alongside Jihadis in the country now want to return home.      ‘I don’t want to be a jihadi… I just want to come home’

Perhaps they have run out of vestal virgins, or they realise that the video games they played ‘back home’ is a little different to the real thing… Either way – or for what ever reason, if they dare to come back then they face 30 years in prison following deportation. I would be happier if they were blocked completely from returning, more so if they received a burst of well placed 7.62mm; a win – win situation for every one.      Yours Aye.

P.S. ‘Bring your own body bag’

‘U dnt need much, u get wages here, u get food provided and place to stay’: The rough travel guide British ISIS fighters are using to lure fellow Britons in to waging Jihad in Iraq.article-2661177-1EE15D0F00000578-543_636x418Extremists from Britain who have arrived in Syria and Iraq, such as Abu Abdullah al-Britani (pictured), are now using social media to encourage others back home to follow suit. They advise people to travel light and bring a smart phone for internet access, but to leave religious books at home to avoid suspicion at the airport. The Islamists also highlight the need for visas for those heading to Turkey on route to neighbouring Syria and explain how money can be exchanged for local currency once in Syria but also suggest bringing extra cash in case of a delay crossing the border in Turkey. ‘U dnt need much, u get wages here, u get food provided and place to stay’article-2661177-1EE2D04300000578-722_634x450Threat: Abu Abdullah al-Britani (left), uses social media to advise would-be militants in the UK. He is pictured here with another ISIS member, boasting on Twitter about drinking coffee in Ar-Raqqah, Syria

Kurdish intelligence estimates around 500 British muslims are now part of the ISIS militant group fighting in Iraq, who have previously fought in Syria. That allows 500 British passports to be revoked, which also saves the British tax payer a small fortune in social payments and housing benefits as that stops with immediate effect. The added bonus to their revoked status means ‘their’ next generation will not be born on British soil (who in turn would inevitably grow up as militant extremists sucking the life out of the country.) All in all a win-win situation, especially when ISIS hits the inevitable Islamic brick ‘Shiite’ wall in Iraq.  Always retire to bed with a happy thought and a smile on your face…  :-)  Yours Aye.

Virgin order delivery for Mr Graveyard…

A hate preacher wanted for recruiting killers to the group that massacred civilians at a mall in Nairobi warned yesterday that Britain was the next target. Abubaker Shariff Ahmed, who is known to his followers by the nickname Makaburi, meaning ‘graveyard’, said terrorists are planning to murder innocent Britons on their mission to impose Sharia law across the world.article-2438018-18600D8400000578-893_306x423 Speaking exclusively to Paul Bentley of the Daily Mail, he named David Cameron as a specific target for the Al-Shabaab terrorist group, which attacked the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, last Saturday. 

Asked if terror would be brought to Britain, Makaburi said: “Yes. The British will be targeted personally. That means tourists on the streets will be killed. You will all die. The British should be taken out. Your presidents and your cabinets, they are guilty. Obama is a mass murderer. I would give my life to get his. Same thing with David Cameron. Yes, they should be killed.

‘Graveyard’, that ‘zzzZZZ’ droning noise that’s keeping you awake at night, isn’t coming from your sleeping bodyguards, it comes from a predator of the worst kind.’      Yours Aye.

Hate preachers daughter, hates!

Not only do we have to contend with the poison spouted by the hypocritical hate preacher Anjam Choudary, we now have to put up with his 16-year-old daughter Hediyah Mehraj doing the same over a Twitter rant (since pulled), using the pseudonym Heidyag Bint Anjem.   Daughter of hate preacher Anjem Choudary uses Twitter to call for holy war
article-0-07057B3F000005DC-972_634x412For those of the Islamic faith who would wish to see shari’ah law govern themselves as well as non muslims living in Great Britain, the following piece of advice; ‘Bugger off to a country of your own choice that practices it’. How simple is that, a win-win situation for all of us…                                 Yours Aye.

From this side of the pond

Some thing is afoot. Perhaps some thing that will eventually lead to a powerful light being played into a corner, where a dark grimy sinister secret is being stored. article-2420334-01B0B6ED00000514-761_634x457Part of the UK & Europe’s Main Stream Media are playing out small ‘feeder’ lines concerning the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, on September 11, 2012. Why did the CIA let a crazed al-Qaeda mob kill America’s ambassador? Moment by moment, the atrocity that’s sent the U.S. into a frenzy of suspicion Pop up ‘feeds’ are done to plant a story into the subconscious part of the readers mind, the line is released slowly over a period of time until a specific article is ready to be released to coincide with a damning report. It wouldn’t be the first time the UK’s media have released a report that never reached across the pond to its sister papers, and vice versa.

The twilight world of blogging has changed all of that..   Yours Aye.

Good news Friday…

There is nothing better on a Friday than leaving on a high note, especially as we head into a weekend of rest. Even better when the high note sends a ripple of good news across the pond concerning the U.K. as well as the U.S.  British bomb-maker on the run with the White Widow – the world’s most wanted woman – died alongside U.S. Jihadi rapper in Somalia after a gun battle with rival terrorists  article-2419994-1BCCE5C0000005DC-302_636x382-2Briton Habib Ghani, 28, and Omar Hammami, 29, from Alabama, (pictured giving a press conference) have been killed in a remote Somalian village where the pair had been hiding with 7/7 bomber widow Samantha Lewthwaite. British born bomb-maker Ghani (pictured top left with Lewthwaite) had been hunted by the terrorist group al-Shabab since he split from them in June. Ghani and Lewthwaite had been on the run since 2011. He and America’s most wanted terrorist Hammami, pictured right, were ambushed in a dawn raid after falling out with commanders from the militant group.    I love Friday’s…       Yours Aye.

The Jihadis Take Two

Two articles on jihad for you. Dimitri Bontinck’s son Jejoen went all jihadi on him. (Ignore the author’s use of crusade, as in: Dimitri Bontinck is on a crusade to find his son Jejoen and return with him to Belgium. They, writers, can’t resist.) And this article titled Blue-Eyed Jihad, about foreign fighters in Syria. (Or Northern Shams, a nod to the old Islamic region of Sham, encompassing not only modern-day Syria but also Lebanon, Israel-Palestine, Jordan, and Iraq.)

Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Jihadi

There was a certain incident in Afghanistan, where a bunch of Army guards were accused of desecrating korans. Nevermind that some of the detainees had written notes to each other in the holy book. As for all that hub-bub about desecration in burning the korans, it is not uncommon. A herd of jihadis just burned some holy books in Mali. And the very bottom word of this burnt document appears to be Allah(الله), in Arabic:

Alkanis Cisse holds the remnants of a burned Islamic manuscript at the Ahmed Baba Center for Islamic learning in Timbuktu, Mali. About 4,000 ancient manuscripts were burned by radical Islamist militants in Timbuktu before the militants were driven out of Timbuktu by French forces earlier this year, according to manuscript preserver Bouya Haidara. (Joe Penney)

Hypocrisy, thy name is jihadi. But we already knew that, n’est pas?

Two down & thirty to go…

On average we have around thirty two teeth set within our gumsWhich is no longer the case for one of the ‘suspects’ arrested for the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby, who is now missing his two front teeth.article-2369177-1A198D89000005DC-138_306x423 

Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo ‘attacked in prison’ ‘Suspect’ Michael Adebolajo 28 years-old was attacked on July 17th in Belmarsh Prison, South East London. 

‘Belmarsh’ has a reputation for housing a gang of prisoners known as the ‘muslim boys’, which makes me curious over the incident. I will watch this story unravel, and hope that the days drag slowly for both of Lee Rigby’s ‘suspected’ murderer’s!

Yours Aye.

US Bloggers Banned from Entering UK?

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer were banned from entering England. I’m not only supporting them because Pam threw me some solid links when I first started blogging, but I also back them based on the critical nature of their work. They write articles asking important questions:

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer co-founded anti-Muslim group Stop Islamization of America.

They were due to speak at an English Defence League march in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed.

A government spokesman said individuals whose presence “is not conducive to the public good” could be excluded by the home secretary.

He added: “We condemn all those whose behaviours and views run counter to our shared values and will not stand for extremism in any form.”

‘Right decision’

Ms Geller, of the Atlas Shrugs blog, and Mr Spencer, of Jihad Watch, are also co-founders of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, best known for a pro-Israel “Defeat Jihad” poster campaign on the New York subway.

On both of their blogs the pair called their bans from entering the UK “a striking blow against freedom” and said the “the nation that gave the world the Magna Carta is dead”.

They were due to attend a march planned by the far-right EDL to mark Armed Forces Day on 29 June, ending in Woolwich, south east London, where soldier Drummer Rigby was murdered last month.

Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, who had called for the bloggers to be banned from the UK, said: “I welcome the home secretary’s ban on Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from entering the country. This is the right decision. The UK should never become a stage for inflammatory speakers who promote hate.”

EDL leader Tommy Robinson, meanwhile, criticised the decision and said Ms Geller and Mr Spencer were coming to the UK to lay flowers at the place where Drummer Rigby died.

“It’s embarrassing for this so-called land of democracy and freedom of speech,” he said.

“How many hate preachers are living in this country? It just shows what sort of a two-tier system we have here.”

Matthew Collins, a rep from an org called Hope Not Hate, said he was delighted with the decision. Wonder how Matt feels about Anjem Choudary.

Justin Kaliebe, Amateur Jihadi

In terms of fighting jihadis, it is not the ones outside of the United States that really concern me. It is the self-radicalized ones that could pose a real longterm threat:

A New York high school student secretly pleaded guilty to federal charges accusing him of trying to join an offshoot of al-Qaida in Yemen so he could die fighting jihad, authorities said Wednesday.

In January, Justin Kaliebe told an undercover operative pretending to be a confidant, “There is no way out for me. … The only way out is martyrdom,” according to court papers.

A record of the American citizen’s computer activity suggested he was influenced by the lectures of cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, the militant leader who was killed in a 2011 U.S. drone strike in Yemen, the papers said.

Counterterrorism agents intercepted the 18-year-old on Jan. 21 as he tried to board a flight to Oman at John F. Kennedy International Airport on his way to Yemen. He pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization on Feb. 8 as part of an ongoing investigation.

The secret plea could mean the defendant was cooperating in the probe when it was at a sensitive stage. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn declined comment.

Jihad in Delray Beach

Along the I-95 freeway in Florida, some jihadis (or perhaps some kids looking to prank the locals) spray-painted the word jihad at the entrance to a freeway onramp. Is it serious? Yes, no matter who defaced the public property. But in this news article and newsclip, some locals get into it with a man who does not think it important:

Delray Beach, Fla –It was hard to miss on Saturday, laced in bold black lettering, nearly twenty feet high a piece of graffiti work reads “jihad”.

In Arabic that term is used to describe a holy war.

Thousands of drivers saw the large message clearly when traveling northbound on I-95 in Delray Beach near the Atlantic exit. That spray painted word jihad created a fight that only CBS 12 caught on tape.
With our microphone flipped on and our camera rolling our news crew was quickly caught in the middle of this war of words. CBS 12’s Karl Man was interviewing Damon Rosen about the jihad spray painted message, something that disgusted him, that’s when an unidentified man left his car and just like that it was on.

Things quickly escalated, the unknown man who did not oppose the jihad message shifted his shouting to a crowd of bystanders.

“You’re all brainwashed!”

The group of on-lookers hurling profanity back at the man.

“You’re going to lose your job bit–!”

Rosen then jumping in with his own choice language…

Jihad spray-painted in Delray Beach, Florida
Jihad spray-painted in Delray Beach, Florida

And just as quickly as it went up, workers went to work painting over it. I’ve never understood those who choose to express themselves this way, through crime. If it is attention that you seek- write, compose, run, inspire society through bravery. Seek attention through ways that motivate people, or make them laugh, groan, smile, grin. I’ve been told writing a rambling blog is one such outlet. . .

Squirmy Jihadis

You usually hear the term merger describing a business deal, but this article writes of a merge in relation to Al Qaeda branches. (Titled: Al-Qaida leader scraps Syria, Iraq branch merger.) I must say, I enjoy watching the jihadis squirm. The details:

In April, al-Qaida in Iraq said it had joined forces with the Nusra Front, forming a new alliance called the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

Hours after the announcement, Nusra Front leader Abu Mohammad al-Golani appeared to distance himself from the merger, saying he was not consulted. Instead, he pledged allegiance to al-Zawahiri.

In Sunday’s letter, al-Zawahri chastises the head of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, saying he announced the merger without consulting al-Qaida’s leadership. He also admonished al-Golani for publicly distancing himself from the merger.

“The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant will be abolished,” al-Zawahri said, adding that Nusra Front will remain an independent branch of al-Qaida. Al-Baghdadi and al-Golani are to stay on as leaders of their respective branches for another year, after which the al-Qaida leadership will decide whether they will keep their posts or be replaced.

Squirm baby, squirm. . .
