Iraq - 70 British Muslims Join Terrorists

The Sunday Times reports.

ABOUT 70 young Muslim men have left Britain to join the insurgents who are fighting coalition troops in Iraq, senior security sources have revealed.

At least three have been killed in combat, including one whose role in an Iraq suicide bombing in February was disclosed by police only last week.

The growing problem of militants from Britain travelling to Iraq has been highlighted by Eliza Manningham-Buller, director-general of MI5, in recent briefings to Tony Blair.

But didn't Iqbal Sacranie, general secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain,
tell us: 'There is no such thing as an Islamic terrorist.'

So how are these jihadist doing in Iraq?

Although an estimated 70 had gone in the past two years, few had returned, the source said.

Oh, dear.

Larger numbers of terrorist recruits left Britain during the late 1990s to fight the “holy war” in Bosnia, Chechnya and Afghanistan.

And their fate will be the same in Iraq.

From a "rebel" commander, Abu Ahmad, terrorist to you and me, we learn this:

He said that Al-Qaeda had “branches, supporters and financiers” in Britain as well as in France, Spain and Germany.

Hey listen, don't worry about it. Sacranie, general secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain, says there is no such thing as an Islamic terrorist and the BBC, in their famous "The Power of Nightmares", tells us that international terror networks are "myths" and "illusions".
