UK: MI5 and anti-terrorism police are monitoring more than 3,000 Muslims

The scale of the domestic threat was revealed after Andrew Parker became yesterday (Thursday) the first MI5 director-general in the agency’s 106-year history to give a live broadcast interview. Intelligence officials had foiled six plots in the past year, he said, calling on internet giants to help in the fight.

Mr Parker told BBC Radio 4: “Most of the people who try to become involved in terrorism in this country are people who were born and brought up here, have come through our education system, and have nonetheless concluded that the country — their home country and the country of their birth — is their enemy.”

      The BBC article on Andrew Parker, which covers much the same ground, is here:

    You can raise a two legged inbred animal among humans, even get hollow leftist humans to “teach” it the nostrums of the day that are to its great advantage.
    But in the end all you have is an inbred animal with raging contempt for those who presumed they now have some inkling about what makes it tick.

    Where were these citizens exposed to teachings that led them to conclude “their home country and the country of their birth — is their enemy.”

    That’s another one of them thar rhe-tor-ic-al questions.

    The 3000 number is probably false, I’m almost positive the number is much higher than that. Western governments are notorious for downplaying real threats and cranking up the alarm for imaginary hobgoblins like global warming.

    Not even mentioned is the millions more who aren’t being monitored for terrorism but are working to non-stop to marginalize the the host society, fracture the political, legal and education systems, impose sharia law and instill fear into anyone objecting to any of this.

    Andrew Parker is just another government talking head instructed by the establishment to make sure the population stays ignorant of the extent of the problem.

      And that line about “Most of the people who try to become involved in terrorism”… how many effing qualifiers and weasel words in that sentence? They’re trying to divert attention from the immigrant invasion threat. Lying bastards.
