Bliar, Reid - turning a blind eye to the Islamists in our midst


At the end of October, Home Secretary John Reid said police would try to "pre-empt the next attack and attempted attack" by terrorists. There would be a "continuing struggle where the terrorists try to get ahead of us and we try to get ahead of them". Today The Times reports that Abid Javaid, a member of the Hizb ut-Tahrir Islamist group (and a senior member at that) is working as a computer technician at the Immigration and Nationality Directorate of the Home Office. Hizb Ut Tahrir or HT is an Islamic splinter group, which is banned in many countries around the world. It operates freely in Britain. A Newsnight investigation in 2003 discovered that its website promoted racism and anti-Semitic hatred, called suicide bombers martyrs, and urged Muslims to kill Jewish people.
A new investigation by Newsnight has also claimed that the group preached hatred to young men using staged videos of persecution of Muslims.For more about HT see here.
Shortly after the July 7 bombing attacks, Blair included the group in a list of those he planned to proscribe, but it has not been among those banned. In the aftermath of 7/7 Blair also spoke of his determination to "defend" the British way of life outweighed "extremist determination" to destroy it. NuLabour and the fight against domestic terrorism- talk about not “fit for purpose”...

Did he sign up any supporters while at the Home Office? What data did he access for his own purposes? Aa truly worrying story.

Ellee,
I wish I knew. It is a terribly worrying story. Are there others like this fellow who have implanted themselves in institutions of state? I doubt if NuLabour have the slightest clue....

It could be worse (maybe). The Dutch spooks went on a hiring spree post 9/11, and ended up with an Islamofascist in charge of Arabic / Dutch translation, who made it his business to pass on all the details to his fellow jihadists...
