UK navy officer joins ISIS

A navy officer who trained at one of Britain’s most prestigious maritime colleges has fled to Syria to join the Islamic State terror group.

Defence experts warned last night that 28-year-old Ali Alosaimi’s high-level skills and exhaustive knowledge of the nation’s shipping fleet represented a terrifying security threat.

Having already targeted passenger jets, there has long been concern that militants will try to bring terror to the seas by attacking ships and ferries.

‘This suddenly raises the spectre of IS damaging shipping,’ said former Royal Navy chief Admiral Lord West. ‘Someone with his knowledge opens up a whole new area where terrorism can take place.’

  • Outstanding.

  • Of course, keeping Muslims out of jobs and training like that would be almost as wrong and racist as a temporary ban on immigration! So let’s just go out and sink our own ships and save them the trouble.

    He had a few years in a maritime training school for merchant navy recruits. There’s no indication in the media that he ever served as an officer on a merchant ship.

    As long as he was integrated really well, that’s the main thing.

    • Yes – he was the very model of a modern mainstream muslim.

    Oh no, what is the Royal Navy going to do without his diversity to strengthen them.

    Hunt him down then bring him back and flog him through the fleet.
