People complain about war, but at least your enemies are geographically distant rather than residing in the local neighborhood. Non-discriminating multicultural immigration has imported many thousands of hostile Muslims, a group that has been the West's most intractable historical opponent. As a result, the violence of the battlefield has arrived on the home front.
British Al-Qaeda plot to murder family of sniper soldier, The Sunday Mirror, January 3, 2010In other Muslified Britain news, the Islam4UK fifth column are stirring up trouble again, after demanding Sharia be made the law of the land a couple months back. Now provocateur Anjem Choudary and his crew are planning a march against British soldiers in a town that is known for its old-fashioned patriotism toward the military.
British-based al-Qaeda fanatics threatened to kill a soldier's family after learning his sniper team had killed 32 Taliban.
Armed police were sent to his home after anti-terrorism officers uncovered the plot to murder his parents.
The plans came to light when the security services monitored "chatter" - believed to be on mobile phones or the internet - between al-Qaeda extremists.
It is the second time a soldier or his loved ones are known to have been targeted in the UK by groups linked to al-Qaeda. The chilling threats came after the serviceman was praised in reports in the media for his skills during a tour in Afghanistan.
The soldier, in his 20s and from Scotland, is a "spotter" who has been working alongside a crack marksman in one of the Army's highly-skilled twoman sniper teams. He and his colleague were hailed heroes for gunning down 32 Taliban fighters in Helmand Province. The Sunday Mirror is not identifying him for his and his family's safety.
Police investigating the threats were sent to his home fearing al-Qaeda sympathisers were on the verge of brutally attacking his relatives in twisted retaliation for his military service. [...]
The revelation follows a plot by an al-Qaeda cell in Birmingham to kidnap a soldier and behead him on the internet in 2007.
Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary vows to continue Wootton Bassett march (Daily Telegraph, January 3, 2010)
The controversial cleric, who heads up Islam4UK, has organised a march of 500 people through the Wiltshire town, in memory of Muslims "murdered in the name of democracy and freedom".There is plenty of outrage among the English people about the latest escalation. In fact, there is a Facebook page in opposition to the Muslim march with over 166,000 members as of today.
Wootton Bassett has become the main focal point for the nation to show its respect to the troops killed in Afghanistan, with hundreds lining the streets each time a body is repatriated to nearby RAF Lyneham.
But Choudary said it was unacceptable to honour those killed in the conflict and he would march through the town with supporters to voice opposition at the gatherings.
Asked why he was against crowds honouring fallen British soldiers, he said: "The same could be said about the Germans fighting for Nazism in the Second World War. Those involved in 7/7 and 9/11 considered themselves to be soldiers.
As Parapundit (Randall Parker) has remarked, "Muslims are nature's way of telling us that multiculturalism is a really bad idea." Yes, and doubly so when Muslim immigration is included.
