Jihadi John and Isil ‘trying to inspire terrorist cult of misfits and mentally ill to commit atrocities’

Mohammed Emwazi and his Isil murderers are creating a terrorist “cult” of misfits and mentally ill to commit atrocities around the world and film and broadcast them, the country’s most senior counter-terrorism officer has warned.

Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said the terror threat facing the UK had “fundamentally” changed and showed no signs of lessening.

He warned the days of “tight secret cells” of terrorists had been replaced with Isil’s ability to inspire anyone, anywhere to kill in its name.

Speaking in the wake of London-based Emwazi being named as the Islamic State terrorist known as Jihadi John, he said that “uncertainty” had made it far more difficult for police and the security services to monitor targets.

    If you really want to kill a deadly snake, you strike the head with all the resources you can bring to the attempt.
    Not issue press releases.

    Assistant commissioner Mark Rowley mistakenly assumes that ‘ISIL’ is creating the Death Cult of Islam. It is the Islamic texts themselves that create Islam’s political agenda: the Koran, Sira and hadiths.

    Saudi Arabia was created by Wahhabism and they have been exporting this terrorist philosophy now for 200 years. There is no way to stop Islamism without destroying the ideology. Assistant commissioner Mark Rowley will go on putting out fires unless we design a fire-proof house where Islam (the fire starter) is not allowed.
