Great Britain’s Interior Ministry warned citizens on Sunday that residents should expect the threat from Islamic radicals to remain high for the next two years; in fact, they should probably expect it to get worse before it gets better.
Releasing a statement on the first anniversary of a bloody Islamic attack that killed eight people in London, the ministry said the country remained on high alert to attacks originating from Muslim extremists and assessed the current threat level as severe. The government claimed to have foiled 25 Islamic attacks since 2013, 12 of which had been disrupted only in the last year. It said the government was currently involved in more than 500 live operations against radical Islam.
“In summary we expect the threat from Islamist terrorism to remain at its current, heightened level for at least the next two years, and that it may increase further,” the ministry said. “The threat from terrorism is constantly evolving. Globally, terrorist groups and networks of all ideologies continue to develop organically, exploiting social media, technology and science to further their aims and ambitions.”
It is perhaps an exercise in self-deception to believe that the UK is doing everything it can to combat this threat. A new analysis by the Guardian of figures produced by the Sentencing Council shows that terrorists in the UK are perhaps not being punished to the fullest extent of the law. In the article, the Guardian found that more than 40% of convicted terrorists sentenced since 2007 will be back on the streets by the end of this year.
And that doesn’t get into the policies that turned Great Britain into a haven for Muslim refugees and migrants in the first place. These are policies that the nation rejected by choosing to leave the European Union in 2016, but the UK government is doing everything possible to work around that inconvenient vote and remain a de facto member of the EU. That means abiding by the same open immigration laws championed by Brussels and ignoring the growing presence of radical Islamists hellbent on waging jihad against Jewish populations and the rest of the Western world.
Britain would love nothing more than to sweep all of this under the rug; they appear, in fact, to be more interested in imprisoning those who speak out AGAINST Islam than the ones who shed blood in its name.
