All the appeasement, all the solicitude, all the hospitality the British government has shown to jihadis, all the hostility it has shown to counter-jihadis, and this is what it gets.

“BRIGHTON TERROR PLOT: Teen ISIS jihadis ‘planned’ gun and knife attack on seaside town,” by Rebecca Flood, Express, April 3, 2016:

A GANG of nearly 30 young people from seaside town Brighton have been unmasked as budding jihadis who were feared to be plotting a terrorist attack.

Counter-terrorism officials identified the large group, of which roughly half are teenagers, as highly likely to flee to the Islamic State (ISIS) strongholds of Iraq and Syria.

The 28 strong gang, which includes five teenage girls who converted to Islam, were thought to be planning a terror attack in Brighton using knives or a pistol.

But it transpired five people, including three brothers, already slipped the clutches of UK security and managed to travel to war-torn Syria, joining up with Jabhat al-Nusra, an affiliate of al-Qaeda.

A further three, including one girl, have court orders preventing them from leaving for Syria.

The radicalised gang only emerged as part of a wider review for the council into three brothers who left their family home to take up arms in the country ravaged by civil war.

Amer, 22, Abdullah, 18, and Jaffar Deghayes, 17, left for Syria in 2014, along with their childhood friend Ibrahim Kamara, 19.

All but Amer are thought to have been killed fighting, who is still believed to be in Syria.

A report by counterterrorism officials revealed they feared some of the radicalised group were planning a Lee Rigby style attack on the streets of Brighton, home to 273,000 people.

Speaking to The Sunday Times, a source said: “The first threat level that they were concerned about is that some of them would take a knife and kill people, a bit like what happened in the Lee Rigby attack.”

Despite identifying weapons such as knives and pistols as likely to be used by the clan, they ruled out explosives and considered it unlikely a group of teenagers would be able to get their hands on any bomb making material.

The source added: “It’s obviously a serious concern that there are 28 young people brainwashed to the point that they want to join jihadist groups or consider plotting against innocent people here at home.

“The concern has not abated; there’s a lot of extremism-related problems lurking that the police nd [sic] social services are attempting to deal with.”…
