A window into the London state-sponsored synthetic terror milieu came in December 2001, when British authorities were forced to arrest and question Mark Yates, a selfstyled security expert who ran a firearms training camp in Alabama. Yates was suspected of helping Islamic terrorist patsies from Britain who were to hone their marksmanship skills on American soil before going off to fight for Islamic causes around the globe.

Yates, a British bodyguard and firearms trainer who had operations in both the United Kingdom and the United States, allegedly offered live fire weapons training in America for aspiring holy warriors. British police thought that Yates was involved on the US end of the Ultimate Jihad Challenge training program offered on the London market by the Sakina Security Services company, owned by Suleiman Bilal Zain-ul-abidin. Yates, who
was also the operations and training director at the Ground Zero firearms training camp outside Marion, Alabama, denied everything. Ultimate Jihad Challenge included instruction in art of bone breaking, and learning to improvise explosive devices. British Muslims would be given the opportunity to squeeze off up to 3,000 rounds at a shooting range in the United States before heading off to fight for Islamic causes around the world. All serious firearms training must be done overseas because of British gun
laws, advertising for the course noted. British prosecutors said their investigators had searched Zain-ul-abidins apartment and seized documents believed to be related to suspected terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda network, anti-Semitic material and what appeared to be disabled firearms, including a rifle and two handguns. The Sunday Telegraph reported about another military training course, this time at a secret camp near the village of Yetgoch in southern Wales. Young Muslims and others
learned how to use Uzi machine guns at the camp, which was run by Trans Global Security International.

The reports of the Welsh training camp rekindled a debate in Britain over how the UK had become a hotbed for military recruitment by radical Islamic elements. Sheik Omar Bakri Mohammed, a firebrand Islamic leader in London, founder of the fundamentalist al-Muhajiroun organization, and Bin Ladens sometime spokesman, said in 2000 that between 1,800 and 2,000 British Muslims were going abroad each year for military training. We find young men in university classes or mosques, invite them for a meal
and discuss ongoing attacks being suffered by Muslims in Chechnya, Palestine or Kashmir, Bakri Mohammed said. We make them understand their duty to support the jihad (holy war) struggle verbally, financially and, if they can, physically in order to liberate their homeland. Bakris al-Muhajiroun group, like al Qaeda, advocated wiping out the worlds 50-plus existing Muslim-majority states and replacing them with a single khilafah (caliphate), or Islamic state. (Sunday Telegraph, MSNBC, December 27, 2001)

Satellite phone records of a phone used by Osama bin Laden during 1996-98, revealed that Britain was at the heart of the terrorists planning for his worldwide campaign of murder and destruction, according to the London Sunday Times. Bin Laden and his most senior aides made more calls to Britain than to any other country; they made more than 260 calls from Afghanistan to 27 numbers in Britain. According to documents from the
trial of the US east African embassy bombings, the telephone was bought in 1996 with the help of Dr Saad al Fagih, 45, the head of the London-based Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia. Al Fagih had been regularly used by the BBC as an expert on Bin Laden. His credit card was also used to buy more than 3,000 minutes of pre-paid airtime. The records showed calls to ten other countries, the next most frequent after the UK being Yemen. There were no calls to Iraq. (London Sunday Times, March 24, 2002)
