A hyper-propagandized war image goes viral in the West, while a preacher implicated in terror plots was ‘protected’ by MI5 – two narratives, both reflecting the ‘humanitarian’ and ‘radicalization’ guises of NATO’s international security syndicate.
When we scratch away the mainstream surface version of the story, what we discover underneath is a web of deep state actors, clandestine deception and media manipulation that exceeds anything Robert Ludlum’s pen could ever put to paper…
Last week, it was reported that the radical preacher Anjem Choudary, another ‘known wolf’ to security services, had been protected by MI5 according to Scotland Yard – even though he was connected to over a dozen terror plots since 2001:
“Counterterrorism officers were repeatedly blocked by British security service MI5 from pursuing criminal investigations against Britain’s highest-profile radical preacher, Anjem Choudary, it has been claimed.
Last week, Choudary was found guilty of supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL), which seized territory in Iraq and Syria and inspired terrorist attacks across Europe.
Following his conviction, it was revealed that the 49-year-old former lawyer had been linked to at least 15 terrorist plots since 2001. Police also believe he has connections to as many as 500 of the 850 young British Muslims who have traveled abroad to join IS.”
It’s worth noting that the contemptible cleric Choudary, now facing jail time for supporting ISIS, crossed paths with Abu Hamza, another radical preacher who subsequently ran the Finsbury Park mosque in North London – a known limited hangout for spooks, criminals and other informants.
In 2015, 21WIRE discussed the dubious role of Hamza at Finsbury Park, as well as his long time connection to MI5, while under the gaze of MI6:
“Hamza’s role as a state instigator and secret custodian of the Finsbury Park’s radical ‘honey pot’, now appears obvious. In a typical honey pot operation, security chiefs will place an outrageously radical character into position in order to attract “the worst of the worst” and then inform on them to authorities. For years Hamza openly preached his overtly radical, over-the-top sermons at Finsbury Park, often praising Osama Bin Laden and glorifying the attacks of 9/11, all the while mocking the police.”
