Consider for a moment just how Islamic terror has changed the very daily social fabric of our lives.
Air travel went from being a sexy fun adventure (think Catch me if you can) to a degrading misery. Our lives were no longer our own, our privacy a thing of the past. In the wake of the jihad war on the West, security measures became omnipresent. Crippling. We became inured to living in this low grade state of war. Train and railway stations are guarded by the military with big dogs and bigger guns. Subway stations and train too, while we are “randomly checked” by counter terror police. You cannot enter a building without a security protocol in major cities. Sports events and holiday celebrations (i.e. July 4th) are fraught with peril. Handbags and backpacks are verboten. Women have to wear see-thru or plastic handbags. I could go on …..
Islamic terror has put free societies on lockdown. And the takeaway from it all? Resistance is “racist” and “islamophobic,” and anyone who does not stay silent (in accordance with Islamic law) will be persecuted and destroyed.
“Car mechanic from West Midlands who became top ISIS bomb maker is revealed as the reason the US banned laptops on flights,” by Jordan Barnes, Mailonline, June 17, 2018:
The former British car mechanic who once boasted of his bomb-making activities in Syria has been named as the reason the United States banned laptops on flights last year.
A former MI6 spy made the revelation in his autobiography explaining how Hamayun Tariq, from Dudley, had plans to smuggle bombs ‘disguised as laptop batteries’.
It prompted a ban on passengers carrying laptops on flights from 10 airports in the Middle East and North Africa bound for the US.
The claims were made by Aimen Dean, a former al-Qaeda explosives expert recruited by secret services to infiltrate UK jihadist circles, as reported by The Sunday Times.
He wrote in ‘Nine Lives’ about Tariq who once went by the nom de guerre Abu Muslim al-Britani:
‘An intelligence source told me in 2017 that Abu Muslim was involved in Isis efforts to develop bombs that could be smuggled onto aircraft disguised as laptop batteries.’
The discovery is believed to have caused the US to ban certain airlines from the Middle East allowing passengers to take laptops onto flights as carry-on luggage.
It also barred electronic tablets, e-readers and anything bigger than a mobile phone.
The ban was initiated in March last year but lifted four months later after improved security checks had been put in place.
The report also highlights a case where Tariq to kill rich Britons by smearing the handles of luxury cars with poisonous nicotine.
The former car mechanic, a divorced 40-year-old who was born and raised in Dudley in the West Midlands, left to join ISIS in Syria in 2014 after serving a sentence for fraud in the UK.
He resurfaced on Twitter a year later to share chilling images of a new high-tech bomb-making lab he assembled there.
Components were seen organised on shelves with instruction manuals and bomb-making equipment neatly laid out on work surfaces in the room.
After posting photographs of his ‘laboratory’, the jihadi wrote on Twitter:
‘IEDs is my favourite weapon after Sniping, u hit the enemy & disappear in thin air just like a Ghost. Its a Must’.
Shortly after joining the terrorist group he began posting detailed explosive-making instructions and encouraging ‘lone wolves’ still living in the West to carry out deadly bomb attacks….
