“Highest Islamist Terrorist Alert” Announced As Europol Report Confirms BNP Is Right

As the British and American governments upgrade their Europe-wide terrorist alerts for fear of a renewed Islamist attack, a newly-released European Police Office (Europol) report has confirmed that the British National Party’s explanation for the terror threat — our nation’s foreign policy — is correct.
Madrid train bombings, 2004.In an official statement, the Foreign Office warned there was a “high threat” of attacks rather than the “general threat” of earlier, and the American State Department issued guidance urging Americans to be vigilant when visiting Europe.
The official British statement warned that attacks “could be indiscriminate, including in places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers,” sparking fears of a Mumbai-style terrorist attack.
The American government said that terrorists have “the potential to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure.”
The Europol report, submitted to the EU’s Standing Committee on operational cooperation on internal security (COSI), which can be found here, was drawn up in May this year but was only released to the public last week.
In that report, Europol states that “Islamist terrorists have legitimised attacks against EU nationals by reference to Western policies towards Muslims and military deployments in Afghanistan and, formerly, Iraq.”
Furthermore, the Europol report states, those “Member States with military presence in these areas therefore face a greater risk of exposure to Islamist terrorist violence” — confirming precisely what the BNP has said all along.
The Europol report is the latest confirmation of the correctness of the BNP’s policy. In July this year, senior police anti-terrorism expert, head of the counter-terrorism Muslim contact unit (MCU) and 30-year Scotland Yard's special branch dealing with Irish Republican and al-Qaida terrorism, Dr Robert Lambert, warned that British foreign policy was a direct cause of terrorism in Britain.
His comments were echoed later that same month by the former head of MI5, Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller, who told the Iraq War Inquiry that invading Iraq and Afghanistan had increased the terror threat in Britain.
In August this year, Britain’s oldest defence and security research think tank, the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), confirmed that the BNP has been correct all along with its claim that Labour/Tory foreign policy is a major cause of terrorism in Britain today.
RUSI, founded in 1831 by the Duke of Wellington, said in an article in its journal that “home-grown terrorism in the UK is growing” partly due to a “foreign policy that serves to focus alienation and resentment.”
The BNP has said all along that the two primary causes of Islamist terrorism in Britain and the rest of the Western world are mass immigration and biased foreign policy in the Middle East.
The Europol report went into quite some detail on the Islamist threat now facing Europe.
“Terrorist activity by Islamist, separatist, and other groups based within and outside the EU remains a serious threat to Member States,” the report states.
“Material on Islamist terrorist websites is increasingly translated into EU languages, indicating both native speaker collusion and that these groups are directing their propaganda at audiences in Member States,” it continued, alluding to the fact that already resident Muslim populations in Europe are actively colluding with the Islamists.
“Islamist extremism, however, is very much a transnational problem, even if certain home-grown elements have become a significant part of the threat in recent years,” the report continued.
“Al-Qaeda affiliated groups such as al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) not only pose direct threats to the EU, but also use the EU as a platform for preparing and initiating terrorist attacks elsewhere.
“Europol records show that 40 percent of individuals arrested in the EU for suspected Islamist terrorist activity were born in North Africa,” it said, adding that “radicalised EU-based Islamists travel to conflict areas such as Somalia to participate in armed struggle or to attend training camps.
“These individuals are a risk to the security of Member States on their return, because of their acquired skills and experience and their potential readiness to engage in or provide logistical support to terrorist activities.”
Even more disturbing, and confirmation of the problem caused by unrestricted Third World immigration, was this section of the Europol report:
“Meanwhile, the number of Somali nationals heading to Europe is increasing. In this context the Somali terrorist organisation Al Shabab’s recent statement of alignment to the ideology of al-Qaeda will be subject to continued monitoring in the EU.
“Moreover, South West Europe is the region in the EU most preferred by terrorist groups with links to North African al-Qaeda affiliates, with active AQIM cells in Spain engaged in recruitment and the provision of logistical support to cells in North Africa.”
In addition, the Europol report touched on the fact that already resident Muslim populations are providing financial support for terrorism.
“The financing of terrorist groups is also supplemented considerably by contributions from residents in the EU and funds misappropriated from NGOs, including those active in the EU,” the report said.
The BNP hopes fervently that there is not a Mumbai-style terrorist attack in Europe, as per the warnings recently issued.
But if there is, then the blood spilled will be firmly on the hands of the Labour and Tory regimes, and their ideological colleagues in Europe who have all ignored the commonsense, logical and accurate explanations of the Islamist terrorist threat as spelled out by the BNP, Europol, MI5 and numerous internationally acclaimed strategic study institutes.
