A bit of street cleaning in London

image

Radical preacher Anjem Choudary was one of nine men arrested today as part of an investigation into Islamist terrorism.

Choudary, 47, and eight other men aged 22, 31, 31, 32, 36, 38, 39 and 51 were arrested by Metropolitan Police officers in London this morning, and have all been taken to police stations - where they remain in custody.

His arrest came on the morning he posted a series of tweets at about 5am with an anti-Western tone, referring to the ongoing crisis involving ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria.

Muslim activist Abu Izzadeen - born Trevor Brooks - is also among the men arrested.

Some 19 residential, business or community premises were being searched today as part of the investigation, Scotland Yard said.

A police spokesman said: ‘These arrests and searches are part of an ongoing investigation into Islamist-related terrorism and are not in response to any immediate public safety risk.’

Officers confirmed that the nine men were arrested on suspicion of being a member of a proscribed organisation, supporting a proscribed organisation and encouraging terrorism.
...
Choudary co-founded the now banned group al-Muhajiroun. Fanatics Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, who were both jailed earlier this year for the brutal slaying of Fusilier Lee Rigby, were both seen at demonstrations organised by al-Muhajiroun.

Choudary said he knew Adebolajo, who was pictured beside him at a rally in 2007, and the second founder of the group, Omar Bakri Mohammed, claimed that he had spoken to the future killer at meetings.

The group, which has changed names a number of times, was banned in the UK in 2010. A study suggested that in the preceding 12 years, 18 per cent of Islamic extremists convicted of terror offences in the UK had current or former links with it.
...
Anti-extremism campaigners Hope Not Hate welcomed the arrests. Chief executive Nick Lowles said: ‘For over a year, since our own extensive investigations into Anjem Choudary and his disciples, we’ve been saying that more must be done to curb this hate-supporting and recruiting organisation.’

In an interesting aside, anti-extremist campaigners Britain First is claiming partial credit in these arrests, saying that it was there investigation and protests that brought public attention to this bunch, forcing an otherwise lazy government to finally act. Britain First is not mentioned in the above news article.

[email from Britain First] This morning, SO15 Counter Terrorism Command swooped on hate preacher Anjem Choudary and his minions.

This is a significant development in our fightback campaign.

It seems that the recent swoops on Britain First were intended to garner intelligence to support these raids, perhaps.

It seems that our recent fightback activities have “stepped on the toes” of SO15 Counter Terrorism Command as they were ready to swoop on Choudary and his network.

They were also intended to temporarily disable Britain First on the verge of these raids.

We cannot see any other cause or reason for the heavy handed actions against Britain First to have taken place.

This is a major triumph for our “Operation Fightback” campaign: our relentless exposures and face-to-face pressure has rendered the State’s policy of giving Islamic extremists a free-hand completely untenable.

When the public doesn’t see, or know, about the Islamic extremist networks, the State can safely ignore them.

Our public exposures, and confrontations, and our enormous online reach, has rendered this policy unworkable.

We have forced the situation!

Firstly Choudary’s network was banned, now they have all been rounded up.

It’s also a strong possibility that because of our fightback activities, and the result that these extremists have been banned and arrested, and taking into account that they have been arrested on terrorism charges, that our actions in forcing the hand of SO15 Counter Terrorism Command has saved lives somewhere down the road.

Naturally, the arrests work as a fundraiser for the group, because the government’s approach to acquiring Britain First’s information was to raid their offices and impound all their computers and gear!

Another reason I am writing this is because the ferocious assault of the police raids have left us utterly stunted in our ability to carry on working.

Because of the police raids, Britain First has ground to a halt.

Why? Because the police confiscated all of our office equipment.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
