AL QAEDA AND LONDONISTAN
The role of London as the leading center of Islamic radicalism has been an open secret for years, but has never been reported by the US controlled corporate media. In the nineteenth century, when Mazzini and Marx operated out of London, the slogan was that England supports all revolutions but her own. In the post-colonial world, the British have found it to their advantage to encourage violent movements which could be used for destabilizations and assassinations in the former colonies, which their ex-masters did not want to see become strong and effective modern states. Between 1995 and 1999, protests were lodged by many countries concerning the willingness of the British government to permit terror groups to operate from British territory. Among the protestors were: Israel,Algeria, Turkey, Libya, Yemen, India, Egypt, France, Peru, Germany, Nigeria, andRussia. This is a list which, if widely known, might force certain US radio commentators to change their world picture about who is soft on terrorism.

A number of groups which were cited as terrorist organizations by the US State Department had their headquarters in London. Among them were the Islamic Group of Egypt, led by Bin Ladens current right-hand man, Zawahiri, who was a known participant in the plot to assassinate Egyptian President Sadat; this was also the group which had murdered foreign tourists at Luxor in an attempt to wreck the Egyptian tourist industry. Also present in London were Al Jihad of Egypt, Hamas of Palestine, the Armed Islamic Group (GIA) of Algeria (responsible for large-scale massacres in that country), the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK), which attacked targets in Turkey, and the Liberation
Tigers of Tamil Eelam (Tamil Tigers) of Sri Lanka, who assassinated Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Ghandi. Sheikh Bakri, Bin Laden spokesmans spokesman, was openly active in London into mid-1998 and later; he gave a press conference after the bombings of the US East African embassies. The killings of figures like Sadat and Rajiv Ghandi should indicate the scale of the destabilization in developing countries of which some of these groups are capable. Non-Anglo-Saxon press organs have from time to time pointed up the role of London in worldwide subversion. The track of the GIA leader in Paris leads to Great Britain. The British capital has served as logistical and financial base for the terrorists, wrote Le Figaro on Nov. 3, 1995, in the wake of a murderous terror attack carried out in France. A report by the French National Assembly in October 2001 alleged that London played the
key role as clearinghouse for money laundering of criminal and terrorist organizations.

On March 3, 1996: Hamas bombed a market in Jerusalem, leaving 12 Israelis dead. A British newspaper reported soon after: Israeli security sources say the fanaticsare funded and controlled through secret cells operating here.Military chiefs in Jerusalem detailed how Islamic groups raised 7 million in donations from British organizations. (Daily Express, London, March 5, 1996) In the midst of a campaign of destabilization against Egypt in the mid-1990s, the semiofficial organ of the Egyptian government pointed out that Britain has become the number one base in the world for international terrorism. (Al Ahram, Cairo, September 7, 1996) Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak noted that some states, like Britain, give political asylum to terrorists, and these states will pay the price for that. (Al-Hayat, September 18, 1996) British newspapers were also alarmed by the level of Islamic
extremist activity they saw around them. By the late 1990s, there were so many Islamic extremists in London that the city had acquired the nickname of Londonistan. The leading right-wing paper in the UK wrote: Britain is now an international center for Islamic militancy on a huge scaleand the capital is home to a bewildering variety of radical Islamic movements, many of which make no secret of their commitment to violence and terrorism to achieve their goals. (London Daily Telegraph, November 20, 1999) President Putin of Russia saw a direct link between the London Islamic scene and terrorism in his own country. He said in an interview with a German news magazine: In
London, there is a recruitment station for people wanting to join combat in Chechnya.

Todaynot officially, but effectively in the openthey are talking there about recruiting volunteers to go to Afghanistan. (Focus, September 2001) Brixton Mosque was one of the notorious centers for terrorist recruitment in the heart of London. This was the home base of Zacarias Moussaoui, the French citizen put on trial in Alexandria, Va. It was also the home of Richard Reid, the shoe bomber of December 2001. Imam Qureshi of Brixton and others were allowed by the British authorities to preach anti-US sermons to the some 4,000 Muslim inmates in British prisons, and thus to recruit new patsies for the world-wide terror machine. According to Bakri, Bin Ladens spokesman, during the late 1990s 2,000 fighters were trained yearly, including many in the US because of the lax firearms legislation. The rival of Brixton Mosque was the equally redoubtable Finsbury Mosque, the home of the Saudi demagogue al Masri, who was finally taken into custody in the spring of 2004. There is every reason to believe that London is one of the main recruiting grounds for patsies, dupes, fanatics, double agents, and other roustabouts of the terrorist scene.
