UK - "The fight against homegrown terror"

But according to Islamists and their left wing supporters, this is either Islamophobia or made up by the government to scare you. Even the BBC in their report try and downplay the threat.

Police and security services know if there is an atrocity, their actions will be closely scrutinised. In May this year, two reports into the 7 July London bombings concluded that no-one was to blame except the bombers themselves.

That was back in May and since then much more evidence has emerged as the BBC well knows.

ABC News has also exclusively learned, with chilling detail, from U.S. and British law enforcement sources that investigators from New Scotland Yard and the British domestic security service MI5 have put together physical evidence and a pattern of interlocking relationships between alleged terrorists that appear to establish a firm link among the subway and bus bombs that killed 52 Londoners on July 7, 2005, a failed set of bombings on July 21, 2005 and a plot to blow up between six and nine airliners, killing as many as 5,000 persons headed to the United States this summer, all the result of three years of planning by British al Qaeda.

Note the "British al Qaeda".

There's more.

Each cell appears to have had ties back to the same British citizen who controlled the plotters from Pakistan and whose identity was first reported by the ABC News Investigative Unit, sources said. That link plus forensic evidence and evidence of overlapping knowledge and personnel in each of the plots is more terrifying to authorities than the prior theory of independent cells operating without knowledge of each others' plans, sources said.

But according to the BBC the bombers acted alone and as the BBC's John Simpson put it, they were just "misguided criminals".
