BBC2 Newsnight obligingly stepped up the drumbeat on home grown DIY Islamic terrists who live in scruffy bedsits manipulating legions of crazy jihadists and gave us tonight a detailed and frightening run down on the mastermind who could (if feline) be called McCavity but prefers the less melodramatic handle of ;
Slick editing, rapid cuts, moving titling, subliminal (and not so subliminal) texts , stock images of Osama Bin Laden, the fabled Iraq AQ mastermind Zarkawi ( no mention of how many legs he had, and the (alleged) pictures looked as though he had two. Although the many and sequential reports of his death always remarked that he was distinctly unipedal) . all to a fast beating wailing rythm.
Plus ..and this was the most frightening , were the images of real terrists ...
Oddly the AQ jihadist Radicalised Islamic Fundamentalists in the Balkans had stacks and stocks (again allegedly) of mortars, explosives and our home grown DIY'ers have to make do with mascara, cascara and a little Brylcreem and hair bleach, rapidly assembled in a tiny airplane toilet to wreak havoc on civilisation as we know it.
Curiously the Sphincter of the Yard looked pale, wan and not a little underweight .. has he lost his lunch pail ? certainly not his paunch but gained some bags under his eyes. Perhaps his Amex card has been forfeited and those 17 course light lunches at the Addis Hilton have been denied him ?
Anyway if it has passed you by, the The First International Conference on Radicalisation and Political Violence kicks off in a secret location in London, tomorrow and continues until the day after.
We also have the good fortune to expect Jacqui Smith the intellectual powerhouse from the Home Affairs department (as we now must call the much slimmed down HomeOffice) to tell us more on Newsnight tomorrow. We can hardly wait....especially for the cyber terrist who explained that no terrist worth his salt would ever think about using the internet.
If we are really lucky we can expect more of the lady Dame Baroness Jane Pauline Neville Jones Fan Club and the RUSI Mafia, Michael "Pixie" Gove, glamorous pouting Melanie Philips, one of a clutch of retired generals and crusty sea dogs, or the lengthy list of bone headed academics on the terrist gravy train from the The First International Conference on Radicalisation and Political Violence see here. ***
Sleep well ...it won't happen near you.
**** Maybe it could be Dr. Ely Karmon a Senior Research Scholar at The International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) and fellow at the Institute for Policy and Strategy (IPS) at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC), Herzliya, Israel , across the road from Mossad HQ.
Or maybe Sir Michael Pakenham for 3 years as Cabinet Secretary for Defence and Overseas Affairs, as Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee (same as Pauline) and as Intelligence Coordinator and he was also our man from MI6 in Embassies around the world for 40 years. His old chum Sir Richard Dearlove head of MI6 will also be there - he took over from Sir David Spedding as ‘C' in September 1999
Another very, very,very , interesting participant will be Nick Fielding . Senior Reporter on the Roop the Poop's Sunday Times where he covered the aftermath and implications of the 9/11 attacks. As he result he co-authored with Yosri Fouda , Masterminds of Terror in 2003 which examined in detail the planning for the 9/11 attacks and which has become the standard reference work on how the operation was carried out ( ie perpetuated the lies of the "official " FBI version how planes evaporated , etc) . The lies have been spread globally in translations into seven languages.
While working as chief investigative reporter for the Mail on Sunday he broke the sensational story of David Shayler, the former (well do they ever leave ?) MI5 officer who went public with criticisms of his former employers. This eventually resulted in the publication of his first book, Defending the Real: MI5 and the Shayler Affair - but doesn't explain how this shambling fat lout keeps appearing unasked and uninvited to meetings, demos, of leftish, critical truth seekers on 9/11, 7/7 bombings, 21/7 bombings etc., etc., (no longer with the hard faced bitch Alice Machon (ex MI5 (?) in tow). Pic on left above is of a fascinating chappie who turned up at election time in Blackburn on 30th April 2005 being a real arse with a megaphone who local Asians (for some reason) considered an MI5/6 /SIS /Police agent provocateur from Luton (!?)pretenting to be from al-Muhajiroun , oddly the very numerous Plod ignored him and requests to have him moved on.
Here for example is a single and typical example how Nick Fielding re-cycles the "official" demonisation of Muslims (most of whom are well funded MI5 contacts) Times : Terror links of the Tottenham Ayatollah July 24, 2005 which contains the memorable remark in the leading paras.
"At least one of the bombers who killed himself and six other people in the Edgware Road Underground blast two weeks ago associated with ALM acolytes in Britain and Pakistan."
Just the guy you want to have around when you want to stoke the fear (and the fires) of anti Muslim /Islam / Jihadist / Extremist / Radicalised / brown faced / palefaced / bearded / terrists. (ALM = al-Muhajiroun )
Cry woe and let slip the dogs of war.
