The United Kingdom is unfortunately a nation that is in the process of slowly committing cultural suicide.
It pains us to say it because the UK is in many ways the cradle of modern Western civilization and there has been no more steadfast US ally for very nearly 100 years.
But the British made a bargain with the devil when they decided to allow massive Muslim immigration a generation ago. As a result, there are now Shariah zones in areas of Britain and there are neighborhoods in London where British servicemen have been told not to wear their uniforms because the locals are offended.
Still, these symptoms of the cultural suicide pale in comparison to the periodic Jihadist attacks and plots that are uncovered. This week has revealed yet another Jihadi plot, this one perhaps among the worst to be contemplated by monsters that are living in and amongst good, innocent British subjects.
The latest plot in the UK involved three Jihadis in Birmingham who were preparing to detonate nail bombs at rail stations with an aim to slaughtering thousands. They also contemplated other forms of attack, but the bomb attacks appear to have been the most serious because the trio did in fact have explosives and bomb making materials and two of them had traveled to Pakistan for training in terrorist camps.
It was their transit to and from Pakistan that may have been their undoing, as they showed up on the excellent British security services’ radar screens.
The Daily Mail has an excellent, detailed account of the plot:
It seems that some of one of the plotters’ friends are incredulous that he could be a part of planning such an atrocity. Irfan Naseer’s friends paint a picture of a jolly, fat Muslim:
This should serve as a warning to people everywhere that you simply cannot judge a book by its cover. Just because someone seems like a “nice guy,” doesn’t mean that he isn’t a committed terrorist. In fact, a terrorist that has been to a training camp in Pakistan has probably been trained to put people around him at ease.
Perhaps the most troubling aspect of the Birmingham terror plot is the fact that members of the Muslim community there knew that these men were traveling to Pakistan to train for terror, yet not a single person came forward to warn the police that this was going on. Fellow Muslims were just standing by in silence as these men planned horrendous atrocities. This is something that should not be forgotten…
