British anti-terror police early on Tuesday arrested six Muslim on suspicion of inciting terrorism overseas and raising funds for terrorists. Five arrests took place in London, and the sixth in the southern English city of Luton, near the capital. The men included Jamaican born Abu Izzadeen, who last September famously heckled interior minister John Reid as he gave a speech to Muslim leaders urging them to stamp out extremism. Izzadeen and the other five men — all aged between 21 and 35 — are reportedly being held at an unnamed police station in central London.
That’ll teach you to mouth off, Izzadeen.
“The arrests form part of a long-term pro-active and complex investigation into alleged incitement and radicalisation for the purposes of terrorism, as well as alleged provision of financial support for international terrorism,” a Metropolitan police spokesman said.
Alleged incitement?? What would it take for the mealy-mouthed to say it straight for a change? “We suspect” would be perfectly legal and would sound a lot less wimpy than “alleged.”
The news story goes on to say that these guys aren’t related to the 7/7 train bombings. I suspect this means that no one is willing to make any connections and muddy the situation any more than it is already.
Note that one of these fellows is from Jamaica so I presume he can be sent packing after whatever term in jail he is entitled to.
If we were more interested in our survival than in the finer points of freedom for all, we’d put some kind of GPS system on these vermin before they’re released. Which is not to say they wouldn’t find a way around that eventually, but for awhile the human intelligence gathering would be of great benefit.
Don’t you wonder how long it would be before the EU outlawed such “inhumane” treatment? That would happen before the killers and beheaders figured their way around the system. The lumbering, corrupt EU elephant can move like a ballerina when it feels threatened.
Meanwhile, should you have been concerned that they were slumbering in Brussels, not to worry.
The EU Parliament is demanding a lowering of the methane level produced by domestic animals:
Their call came after the UN said livestock emissions were a bigger threat to the planet than transport.
The MEPs have asked the European Commission to “look again at the livestock question in direct connection with global warming”.
The official EU declaration demands changes to animals’ diets, to capture gas emissions and recycle manure.
They warned: “The livestock sector presents the greatest threat to the planet.” The proposal will be looked at by the 27 member states.
The UN says livestock farming generates 18 per cent of greenhouse gases while transport accounts for 14 per cent.
There’s really a simple solution: give all citizens one of the United Nations’ SUVs. In no time at all, the emissions for transportation will pass that of the animals. Problem solved.
Meanwhile, we could provide corks for Porky and Bessie, so their emanations could be contained. Problem further solved.
However, if you want a radical solution to hot, poisonous air, eliminate the UN and the EU. Just think of the reductions in bloviation. Enough to give LA clear skies.
Why do they make these things so complicated? Oh…of course, jobs for the
Never mind. Some solutions are worse than the problems they are designed to correct.
