Hate preacher Anjem Choudary today backtracked on comments he previously made about his links with one of Drummer Lee Rigby's suspected killers in the face of an MI5 investigation.

Choudary said he has not been in touch with murder suspect Michael Adebolajo since 'before 2007' after it was revealed MI5 investigators were looking into the amount of contact, if any, he had with the two suspects.

But last week Choudary said he last saw him in 2011 as he admitted knowing the 28-year-old British-born Nigerian. He described him as a man of 'impeccable character' in interviews with BBC Newsnight and Channel 4 News.

He has now appeared to attempt to distance himself from the suspect after an intelligence source was quoted in The Sun newspaper as saying: 'One of the priorities is to clear up the level of any contact between Choudary and these two men.

'The investigators will be particularly interested in the timing of any contacts or associations in the months, weeks, days or even hours leading up to the murder.'

Choudary today said: 'You won't find any contact between us (meaning Adebolajo) for the last six or seven years - probably before 2007.

 

'Let them investigate. They won't find anything at all.'

He also repeated being unaware of having ever met the second alleged attacker Michael Adebowale, 22, who is now being questioned by police for the first time about the horrific murder.

Choudary said: 'I'm not concerned about anything. It was a lone wolf attack.'

The connection initially came to light after Adebolajo and Adebowale were arrested on suspicion of hacking Drummer Rigby to death in broad daylight after he was run down with a car last Wednesday.

Choudary, who led Islamist group Al Muhajiroun - the banned forerunner to Islam4UK where Adebolajo often appeared with other radical protesters - last week said he recognised Adebolajo from TV footage at the scene.

Choudary said last week: 'I went to the same primary school as him in Woolwich, Mulgrave, and grew up in the same area and he came to the local mosque - it was a peaceful community with lots of Muslim people from Somalia and Pakistan. I didn’t know him that well so I can’t say where his family was from.

'He converted around 2003 to Islam, before I met him and I knew him as his convert name "Mujaheed" when he used to attend our demonstrations and lectures. I last saw him in 2011, he was a very nice man with impeccable character and nothing unusual about him.'

He added: 'What he did was unusual and it’s not the kind of view that I propagate and I do not condone the use of violence, but those views are out there. Some members of the Muslim community struggle to express themselves and he is making his voice heard in blood.'

Choudary suggested that it was possible the attack was motivated by British government foreign policy in the Muslim world, and that this may not have been an isolated incident.

He said: 'We are a very politicised community. Some people are angered by draconian measures such as "stop and search" and restrictions on free speech.

'There is a chance of more lone wolf attacks happening again due to these draconian measures.

'If you want to condemn anyone it’s the British government, this is one death but if you add up the number of people killed and tortured by the British government it is in the millions.'

Adebolajo's family last night said they were horrified by the murder and sent their ‘heartfelt condolences’ to the family of slain soldier Lee Rigby.

In an extraordinary statement, they said they shared the horror of the nation at the ‘senseless killing’ and ‘fully expect’ that the killers will be brought to justice.

They added: ‘We wholeheartedly condemn all those who engage in acts of terror and fully reject any suggestion by them that religion or politics can justify this kind of violence.’

Last night, counter-terrorism detectives were also preparing to question Adebowale, 22, over his role in the Woolwich horror last Wednesday.

After being discharged by doctors, Adebowale was re-arrested on suspicion of attempting to murder a police officer, in addition to killing Drummer Rigby.

It is understood that 28-year-old Adebolajo is in a far more serious condition and could remain in hospital for ‘some time’.

Woolwich attack: MI5 'offered job to suspect'

MI5 asked Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo if he wanted to work for them about six months before the killing, a childhood friend has said.

Abu Nusaybah told BBC Newsnight his friend - one of two men arrested after Drummer Lee Rigby's murder in south-east London on Wednesday - had rejected the approach from the security service.

The BBC could not obtain any confirmation from Whitehall sources.

Abu Nusaybah was arrested at the BBC after giving the interview.

Newsnight reporter Richard Watson said after the interview had concluded he left the studio to find officers from the Metropolitan Police counter terrorism unit waiting to arrest Abu Nusaybah.

The Met confirmed a 31-year-old man had been arrested at 21:30 BST on Friday in relation to suspected terrorism offences and search warrants were being executed at two homes in east London.

The arrest was not directly related to the murder of Drummer Rigby, it said.

The soldier was killed in front of dozens of people near Woolwich Barracks, where he was based, on Wednesday afternoon.

Mr Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, who was also arrested at the scene, remain in hospital after being shot by police.

'Bugging me'

In his Newsnight interview, Abu Nusaybah said he thought "a change" had taken place in his friend after a trip to Kenya last year.

He said Mr Adebolajo had told him he travelled there "to study", but instead, was part of a group rounded up by "Kenyan troops" and interrogated in a prison cell.

During his detention he said he was "beaten quite badly", Abu Nusaybah said, and in his opinion, his friend had also been subjected to sexual abuse, although he was too "ashamed" to say exactly what happened.

After this, he became withdrawn "and less talkative - he wasn't his bubbly self", Abu Nusaybah said, adding: "His mind was somewhere else."

He also said Mr Adebolajo was "stopped" upon his return to the UK from Kenya and was later "followed up by MI5" who were "knocking on his door".

He was "basically being harassed", Abu Nusaybah said.

He added: "His wording was, 'They are bugging me - they won't leave me alone.'

"Initially they wanted to ask him if he knew certain individuals.

"But after him saying that he didn't know these individuals, what he said was they asked him if he would be interested in working for them.

"He was explicit in that he refused to work for them but he did confirm he didn't know the individuals."

Reporter Richard Watson said that, in general terms, it was not out of the ordinary for the security service to approach people for information or even to act as covert sources.

Mr Adebolajo, 28, originally from Romford, east London, and fellow suspect Michael Adebowale, 22, of Greenwich, south-east London, had been known to MI5 for eight years, Whitehall sources told the BBC on Thursday.

'Devoted father'

Two women, aged 29 and 31, arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, have been released without charge, but a man, 29, remains in custody.

Speaking about the fight against the rise of the extremist ideology, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police Sir Peter Fahy told the BBC there had been a "steady stream of plots", which had on the whole been foiled by police.

But he said the police and the security services were "particularly concerned" about people travelling from Britain to conflict areas such as Mali, Syria and Iraq and the increase in extremist websites.

Since the murder there has been an sharp increase in the number of in anti-Muslim incidents, according to the organisation Faith Matters, which works to reduce extremism.

Before the attack about four to eight cases a day were reported to its helpline, but the group said more than 150 incidents had been reported in the last few days, including attacks on mosques.

On Friday, Drummer Rigby's wife Rebecca, the mother of his two-year-old son, said she had been aware of the dangers of her husband serving in countries where there was armed conflict, including Afghanistan, but added: "You don't expect it to happen when he's in the UK. You think they're safe."

She said: "I love Lee and always will. I am proud to be his wife. He was a devoted father to our son Jack and we will both miss him terribly."

Drummer Rigby's stepfather, Ian Rigby, said: "We would like to say 'Goodnight Lee, rest in peace our fallen soldier. We love you loads and words cannot describe how loved and sadly missed you will be'."

Mr Rigby added that his stepson "adored and cared a lot for his family, he was very much a family man, looking out for his wife, young son Jack, younger sisters, whom in turn they looked up to him".

Woolwich attack is unprecedented test for MI5 oversight body

• Credibility of parliamentary committee at stake
• First investigation under new powers
• New questions over 'snoopers' charter'

The brutal killing of Drummer Lee Rigby presents the parliamentary body responsible for holding MI5 to account — the Intelligence and Security Committee — with its biggest test yet.
Its credibility is at stake.
Its members are appointed by the prime minister, vetted, and sign a declaration saying they are bound by the terms of the Official Secrets Act.
They are firmly within what Whitehall calls the "ring of secrecy".
The committee is chaired by the former Conservative defence and foreign secretary, Sir Malcolm Rifkind. He is well aware, as he made clear in an article in the Guardian earlier this year, that MI5 prevented the committee from seeing the evidence it needed on the 7/7 London underground bombings in 2005 and its involvement in the secret US rendering of terror suspects, including British citizens and residents.
The committee has not inspired confidence in the past. As Rifkind put it, "the independence on which its ability to reassure the public rested was seriously compromised".
He has persuaded the government to increase the ISC powers. Instead of merely "requesting" documents and information, it is can now require MI5 (and MI6 and GCHQ) to provide them. It is entitled to examine their files, and investigate operations, he said.
Rifkind indicated on Tuesday that the new head of MI5, Andrew Parker, has assured him that he wants to "fully cooperate" with the ISC.
The 2013 Justice and Security Act, says any particular investigation carried out by the ISC into MI5 operations would be "limited to the consideration of information provided voluntarily to the ISC ".
However, this relates only to current operations. The ISC now has a free hand in investigating MI5 operations retrospectively.
Also, reports of the ISC are vetted by Downing Street to see if they might harm "national security" and the committee meets in private (though the heads of MI5 and MI6 are reported to have agreed to appear in public for one hearing).
Key questions about MI5's handling of Michael Adebolajo, the Briton of Nigerian descent, one of Lee Rigby's alleged killers, include its apparent decision not to keep tabs on him after he was arrested in Kenya in 2010 supposedly on his way to train with al-Shabaab, the al-Qaeda franchise extremist group based in neighbouring Somalia.
Evidence that Adebolajo might be toying with extreme, militant, jihadism, presumably was the reason why MI5 approached him later. It was on a plate.
MI5 has thousands of individuals on its terrorism database. It has always said, notably during the investigation into the 7/7 bombings, that who to keep under surveillance, and how persistently, was a matter of of priorities.
It is also a question of resources.
Some, notably Lord Reid, the former Labour home secretary, and Lord Carlile, the government's former adviser on terror laws, have suggested that Rigby's horrific killing, just shows how necessary is the proposed communications data bill, currently abandoned because of LibDem opposition.
The bill would extend phone tapping to emails, internet telephony, and social media, enabling the security and intelligence agencies to monitor all such communications made by anybody.
There is no evidence that such powers would have helped MI5 prevent Rigby's death. Far from it. As Richard Barrett, the former head of counter terrorism at MI6, has pointed what evidence there is suggests that the decision to kill the soldier was unplanned, and was only taken shortly beforehand.
Critics of the communications data bill say that it would be an unacceptable threat to individual privacy and civil liberty.
It would also mean MI5 risked being smothered in personal information making it more difficult, rather than easier, to separate the wheat from the chaff, to pursue those who presented a real threat.
Some are always likely to escape the net, any net.
The question is could MI5 be reasonably expected to have pursued those who killed Rigby in a way that might have prevented the murder?
And can we trust the ISC to carry out its investigation fearlessly?

Former MI5 chief General Baroness Manningham-Buller backs proposals for judges to hear intelligence evidence in secret

Intelligence relationships between the UK and other countries could be “seriously jeopardised” unless judges are allowed to hear evidence in secret, a former MI5 chief has said today.
Former director general Baroness Manningham-Buller said in a letter to The Times that it would be "dangerous" for the UK if the proposals did not become law.
The Government has said it is wasting millions of pounds of taxpayers' money on settling claims, some of which may have no merit, because it is unable to contest them as the evidence it would wish to produce is so secret that it cannot be revealed in an open court.
The former director general backed the Justice and Security Bill which would grant judges the choice to listen parts of civil cases, including claims for mistreatment, in private without claimants being able to hear some of the evidence against them.
She said: "The Bill also aims to close a legal loophole that seriously jeopardises the intelligence relationships between the UK and other countries.
"Unless this loophole is closed, the flow of intelligence from other countries, which according to the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, has already been reduced, will slow to a trickle," she said.
"That would be dangerous for the UK as so many of the threats we face are global and we need foreign intelligence to understand and counter them."
She added that the reforms would allow the cases to be properly judged for the first time.
She said: "Because the secret material held by the authorities cannot be used in court, the Government is forced to settle without a judge examining the merits of the claim.
"This is immensely damaging to the reputation of the Government and the intelligence and security agencies, which cannot defend themselves."

Exclusive: 'Snooper’s charter’ would not have prevented Woolwich attack, says MI5

Using Drummer Rigby killing to justify extra powers is ‘cheap’, say security chiefs


Wednesday 29 May 2013

A Conservative-backed plan to allow police and the security services unprecedented access to people’s internet communications would not have helped prevent the murder of Lee Rigby, M15 officers have indicated.
Senior security sources have told The Independent that attempts to cite last Wednesday’s killing as a reason to push forward with the controversial “snooper’s charter” was a “cheap argument”.
The remarks will be seen as a rebuke to the Home Secretary, Theresa May, who suggested at the weekend that the Draft Communications Bill was “essential for the intelligence agencies” to combat the threat of terrorism.
In fact, the security source suggested, the Bill would be of greater use to the police in gathering evidence in the early stages of an investigation than it would be in preventing the type of attack seen in Woolwich.
They stressed any decision to proceed with the Bill, which is being blocked by the Liberal Democrats, was a political one and the effect on civil liberties would have to be taken into consideration.
Today, it also emerged that the head of MI5, Andrew Parker, has written to the Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee setting out what the security services knew about the activities of the Woolwich suspects Michael Adebowale and Michael Adebolajo. This follows talks between Mr Parker and Sir Malcolm Rifkind, the chairman of the committee, last week.
In the wake of the attack it emerged that Adebolajo and Adebowale were both known to MI5 – and may have been approached to act as informers.
Today, Adebowale was taken to a police station in south London after being released from hospital.
He was formally arrested on suspicion of the murder and suspicion of the attempted murder of a police officer.
He will now be interviewed by detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service Counter Terrorism Command.
In an interview, Sir Malcolm insisted that MI5 was not being criticised over the killings. “I don’t think they’re in the dock. I think that would be very unfair,” he said.
“Do remember one fundamental point: the fact we have not had anyone killed until these tragic events in Woolwich since the 7/7 bombings [in London] in 2005 is not because there hasn’t been terrorist plots. Every year since 2005 there has been at least one, sometimes two or even more, terrorist plots which were disrupted and prevented from killing British citizens, partly because of the work of MI5 – in some cases very largely because of the work of MI5 – and other intelligence agencies.”
Sir Malcolm said he was very confident the committee would get to the bottom of MI5’s work related to the Woolwich incident and that Mr Parker had offered him assurances that MI5 would fully co-operate with the investigation. The ISC has Parliament-approved powers to access all relevant files and internal papers from MI5.
Sir Malcolm said that after the ISC deliberations, David Cameron and Parliament would receive a report.
He added that elements of Parliament’s report might be redacted for public viewing on the grounds of national security.
Sir Malcolm added that the effect of government spending cuts on the security services would also be analysed during the ISC’s review.
“We would be concerned if there were to be any further reduction in resources for the intelligence agencies,” he said.
“Whether this is relevant to the Woolwich incident, frankly I’m not going to comment on it at the moment. We will go where the evidence takes us and we will come to a judgement as to whether that is indeed part of the problem, if there was a problem or if it’s not relevant to this particular matter.”

Arrested: In 2010 Michael Adebolajo, second from right, was among nine suspected members of the Al-Shabaab movement captured by Kenyan police
Sources in Africa say the 28-year-old was seen in Kenya as late as last November, in the company of a radical cleric who was also being monitored by security forces.
Adebolajo is also suspected of making a third visit to the country, which has become a gateway for young radicalised Britons wishing to fight alongside jihadists in Somalia.
 
The British police and security services now face questions over why they did not do more to stop Adebolajo and his accomplice, Michael Adebowale. 
Despite a string of warning signs stretching back ten years, Adebolajo is said to have been considered to be ‘low-risk’ by MI5. 
Police may have known about his extreme beliefs as early as 2003, when he joined Al-Mahajiroun, an extremist group which was monitored by the security service and later banned. 

Known to police: Adebolajo was part of a mob that attacked an EDL March in Harrow in 2009

AN EXTREMIST WHO WAS RAISED AS A CHRISTIAN

Michael Adebolajo, 28, was born in Lambeth, south London, in 1985 to a Christian family of Nigerian descent.
At the age of 15 or 16 he started getting involved in Islam and started to speak about Jihadi ideas. 
He joined several extremist groups - including Al Muhajiroun - that were banned in Britain and in 2003 converted to Islam, calling himself Mujaheed while at Marshalls Park School.
Fearing he had become radicalised, his parents moved him away from Romford to a village in Lincolnshire.
He then went to university in Greenwich, living in Eltham while he was a student.
A former friend told the Evening Standard that he was a Christian.
The friend said: 'He started getting involved with Islam aged about 15 or 16, and that is why his parents moved him away out of the area. It is utterly shocking to see what he has done. It’s unbelievable.'
The security services, including MI5, were aware of him and his accomplice, who has not been named but is believed to be from Harold Hill, close to Romford.

Why did MI5 let soldier killer go to Kenya a SECOND time?

  • Michael Adebolajo and accomplice Michael Adebowale linked to many radicals
  • Kenya warned Britain Adebolajo was dangerous when deported in 2010
PUBLISHED: 23:33, 27 May 2013 

MI5 faces growing questions over the Woolwich murderers after it emerged that Michael Adebolajo was left free to return to Kenya despite the fact the country had deported him as a terrorist.
Adebolajo, seen wielding a knife with his hands covered in blood after the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby, was booted out of the African country in 2010 after he was caught attempting to enter Somalia to fight with extremists.
Kenya warned Britain that he was a ‘dangerous radical’ intent on waging war on the West – but he was free to return at least once last year to meet with fellow jihadists, the Daily Mail understands.

Yesterdays mail
From yesterday's Daily Mail
He was photographed at high-profile protests – even standing next to hate preacher Anjem Choudary – and was arrested in 2006 after an ugly scuffle at the Old Bailey.
Seven years later, the Kenyan authorities returned Adebolajo to Britain, warning that he was a dangerous terrorist intent on waging war. 
Sources in the Kenyan capital Nairobi claim Adebolajo may have gone on to enter Kenya on two occasions in 2012 using false passports.
TEN YEARS OF MISSED OPPORTUNITIES
It is claimed that he was arrested with five others last February, as he tried to reach Somalia once again. 
Instead of being taken to court, he would have been put straight on a flight to the UK, under a new policy which sees all foreigners attempting to cross the border removed from Kenya. 
A second claim is that Adebolajo entered Kenya even later, again using a false passport, to meet with a cleric named Hassan Makbul. The pair are understood to have realised their cover had been blown, and fled to Tanzania in November. 
The Mail understands the security forces were aware Adebolajo had left for Africa on at least one occasion, and may have allowed the journey to monitor who he would meet.
MI5 chief Andrew Parker is set to present a report to a Parliamentary committee on the case this week. 
Kenya claims the British security services ‘ignored’ warnings about Adebolajo. An immigration official said: ‘This man had a mission to complete so we work on the assumption that he would have come back.’ 
Court documents seen by the Daily Mail reveal how determined Adebolajo’s gang were to join the Al Qaeda linked al-Shaabab in 2010. When they were arrested police also found al-Shaabab flags and uniforms.
The Kenyans also discovered Adebolajo had been radicalised by Sheikh Aboud Rogo, a cleric who was also close to Samantha Lewthwaite, the ‘white widow’ of 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay.

"...Last week, Mr Nusaybah was arrested after giving an interview to Newsnight.
On that programme Mr Nusaybah claimed MI5 asked Mr Adebolajo if he wanted to work for them about six months before the killing of Drummer Rigby...."

Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo travelled to Kenya in 2010

A childhood friend of one of the Woolwich soldier murder suspects has written to the Commons Intelligence and Security Committee with further allegations about the role of MI5.
Abu Nusaybah asked the committee to investigate any connection between British and Kenyan authorities in the "mistreatment" of Michael Adebolajo.
Drummer Lee Rigby was murdered in south-east London last Wednesday.
Committee chairman Sir Malcolm Rifkind said he would look into the claims.
This would be part of the committee's wider investigation into the role of the security services, he said.
Mr Adebolajo, 28, claims he was tortured by the Kenyan authorities when he travelled to the country in 2010.
'Initial conversation'
Sir Malcolm told the BBC's Newsnight programme: "I can confirm that I've received that letter and we will treat it as we are treating all the other reports that have appeared, in the newspapers or on television, making various claims about whether the intelligence agencies were involved.
"That's our job. Our job is to look at these matters. I've already had an initial conversation with the head of MI5. He is anxious to co-operate very fully with the Intelligence and Security Committee."
Last week, Mr Nusaybah was arrested after giving an interview to Newsnight.
On that programme Mr Nusaybah claimed MI5 asked Mr Adebolajo if he wanted to work for them about six months before the killing of Drummer Rigby.
He said Mr Adebolajo had rejected the approach from the security service.
The BBC could not obtain any confirmation from Whitehall sources.
Another of the murder suspects, Michael Adebowale, 22, has been discharged from hospital and moved into custody in a south London police station. Mr Adebolajo remains in hospital.
They were were shot and injured by police at the scene near Woolwich Barracks.
Drummer Rigby was stabbed repeatedly in the street by two men last week in Woolwich, witnesses have said.
Eight other people have been arrested in connection with the attack so far; six them have been bailed and two released without charge.

Michael Adebolajo, a religious fanatic, was held by the Kenyan police near the border with Somalia because he tried to join the al-Shabaab. Yet, instead of having a system which imprisons British nationals who go abroad to kill in the name of Islam; it appears that the United Kingdom welcomes them back with open arms by flaunting the 2006 Terrorism Act providing the circumstances fit. Not only this, but MI5 deems this to be a great opportunity to obtain a possible informer whereby they will pay tax payers money on a person who supports mass hatred.

UK, MI5 and Syria: Hypocrites, Somalia and Brutal Murder of Lee Rigby

UK, MI5 and Syria: Hypocrites, Somalia and Brutal Murder of Lee Rigby
Boutros Hussein and Lee Jay Walker
Modern Tokyo Times
In the United Kingdom it is clear that nobody is concerned about converts to Buddhism and Hinduism being involved in killing people in the name of God, Gods or the Buddha. Indeed, within the Islamic faith it is clear that the Alawites, Alevi, Ahmadiyya, Shia, and a plethora of other sects, are not involved in inciting religious hatred in the United Kingdom. The same also obviously applies to mainstream Sunni Muslim religious leaders. However, you have a problem within radical Sunni Islamic circles which deem all and sundry to be infidels. After all, in Syria several Sunni Muslim clerics have been killed by Sunni jihadists because they didn’t follow their draconian version of Islam.
Turning to the security agencies of the United Kingdom then it appears that too many are very naive and that some members are ignoring certain laws which are meant to protect British nationals. Michael Adebolajo, a religious fanatic, was held by the Kenyan police near the border with Somalia because he tried to join the al-Shabaab. Yet, instead of having a system which imprisons British nationals who go abroad to kill in the name of Islam; it appears that the United Kingdom welcomes them back with open arms by flaunting the 2006 Terrorism Act providing the circumstances fit. Not only this, but MI5 deems this to be a great opportunity to obtain a possible informer whereby they will pay tax payers money on a person who supports mass hatred.
Now, if you don’t understand the mindset of al-Shabaab this is all and well. However, clearly the security services of the United Kingdom and the political elites do. Therefore, despite the al-Shabaab in Somalia killing every convert to Christianity that they can find and destroying Sufi Islamic shrines; it appears to matter little. The al-Shabaab not only behead Muslim converts to Christianity while praising Allah but they also support stoning women to death and chopping hands off for minor crimes. This reality is being glossed over too much and the same applies to Islamist nations which have good relations with the British government.
For example, in Saudi Arabia not one single non-Muslim holy place is allowed. Apostates from Islam to Christianity or other non-Muslim faiths face the death penalty in this country. The same applies to other nations which implement Islamic Sharia law to the full. It appears absurd that in the modern world that you still have some nations which support killing non-Muslim men for the act of marrying a Muslim female. However, in several Islamist states the act of love between a non-Muslim male and Muslim female is deemed unethical according to Islamic Sharia law and punishable by death. Of course, in many majority Muslim nations this doesn’t apply because of cultural factors, different political systems and based on different thought patterns within the Islamic world. Despite this, it is clear that the British government is allowing extremist nations, organizations, Islamist charities and other Islamist groups to spread their hatred within the United Kingdom. This is detrimental to all British nationals irrespective of faith but clearly these “Islamist taps” are not being switched off.
It must be stated that even within the prison system of the United Kingdom that many moderate Muslims and non-Muslims have been converted to radical Sunni Islam inside the institutions of this country. If Islamist militancy can thrive so openly within universities and prison services then clearly something is amiss. Likewise, it is ironic that the Christian faith is thriving in Nigeria despite the threat of Islamist militancy in northern Nigeria; but in the United Kingdom the indigenous faith is in clear decline and this vacuum is being filled on the fringes by Islamists. Without a shadow of a doubt both individuals involved in the murder of the innocent British soldier would still be outside the clutches of Islamic militancy – if they (or their parents) had never entered the United Kingdom. If this isn’t a sad indictment of what is happening in Britain then what is?
It is also ironic that Prime Minister David Cameron, the Foreign Minister William Hague and one of the killers of the innocent British soldier Lee Rigby all share one common theme. They all support anti-Syrian government forces which are involved in many beheadings, terrorist acts, killing Alawites, persecuting Christians, killing Sunni Muslim clerics which support the government and other brutal acts of barbarity. Therefore, David Cameron and William Hague are focused on supporting the dark forces of terrorism and sectarianism at government level against the government of Syria. Meanwhile one of the Islamists involved in the brutal murder of Lee Rigby was canvassing on the streets of England to fight against the Syrian government.
Of course, the two Islamists involved in the sickening murder of Lee Rigby reside in a world which is far from reality. Likewise, the majority of the media coverage about Syria resides in a distorted world therefore this will have suited their warped minds. After all, in Syria it is abundantly clear that militant Sunni Islamists are beheading, persecuting and destroying the fabric of Syrian society. Despite this, the term “rebels” and other nice labels are spread around the media. At the same time, countless brutal massacres by the side which the British government supports in Syria are usually overlooked – or the articles manipulate darker angles – or provide anti-Syrian government coverage on the same page in order to dilute.
The two individuals involved in the brutal murder of Lee Rigby clearly have been brainwashed. After all, every day Muslims are killing Muslims in many nations and this currently applies to Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and others. Ahmadiyya Muslims for example are persecuted in Indonesia and Pakistan by fellow Muslims but they are not persecuted by the British government. Likewise, many Shia are slaughtered in several nations by Sunni Islamist militants and currently Sufi shrines are threatened by Sunni Islamist militants in Libya, Mali and Somalia. Therefore, the two brainwashed Islamists clearly reside in cloud cuckoo land but this didn’t stop the security agencies in the UK from being interested in employing one of the fanatics.
In Syria before outside nations supported sectarianism, terrorism and sedition against the government and people of this nation; the “light of Islam” was felt warmly in this country. This applies to the various different Christian sects which have a plethora of churches and institutions throughout this land. Likewise, in Lebanon and Syria you will find many Armenians because their ancestors fled the brutality of the 1915 genocide committed by the Turks. Many Armenians found new homes within mainly Muslim Syria and multi-confessional Lebanon. In more recent times, vast numbers of Christians have fled Iraq because of terrorism and once more Jordan and Syria opened their doors based on humanity. However, today you have al-Qaeda, Islamist sectarians, America, France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Kingdom all on the same side against secular Syria. Therefore, the “light of Levant Islam” is now being threatened by the meddling of outside nations. This reality means that the UK and other governments are enabling Islamists to spread their dangerous tentacles. At the same time, many Islamists have left the United Kingdom in order to kill mainstream Muslims and Christians in Syria.
The madness of the political elites is even confirmed by the Home Secretary. In the Daily Telegraph it reports that Prevent was set up under the Labour government in 2005 after the London bombings of July 7. After the last general election, Theresa May, the Home Secretary, commissioned a review because she regarded it as highly flawed, and was critical of the higher education sector’s “complacency” in dealing with the Islamists on campus. She later admitted that Prevent had handed taxpayers’ money to hard-line Muslim groups that promote extremist views.”
“One senior counter-terrorism source said: “Would a university allow someone to speak on campus if they were advocating the best way to be a paedophile or an armed robber? No, they would not. But they allow speakers who advocate terrorism.”
Sadly, it appears that in the United Kingdom that anything is possible because elites are in denial mode. Therefore, is anyone surprised that MI5 and successive British governments have got it wrong? The same can be said about supporting various terrorist groups in Syria which have even trained children to behead captured Syrian soldiers. Given this reality, the barbarity of what happened to Lee Rigby is a common feature of what is happening to anyone deemed to be pro-Syrian government in Syria. It is time to switch the “Islamist terrorist clock off” wherever it is because this brutal mindset hates all and sundry – irrespective if they butcher Muslims, Christians and people of other faiths and no faith.

Woolwich attack: MI5 knew of men suspected of killing Lee Rigby

• Security service assessed suspects but did not investigate
• Victim Lee Rigby had served in the army for seven years
• Police raid homes in London and Lincolnshire
• Extremist cleric says he tutored suspect
Link to video: Woolwich attack: Muslim cleric Anjem Choudray claims he knew murder suspect
The two suspects in the butchering to death of a British soldier had been known to the domestic security service MI5 and the police over an eight-year period, but had been assessed as peripheral figures and thus not subjected to a full-scale investigation, it has emerged .
One of the two attackers was named as Michael Olumide Adebolajo, the man seen in dramatic video brandishing knives and justifying the attack as a strike against the west while his victim lay yards away bloodied and fatally wounded.
Adebolajo had complained of harassment by MI5 in the last three years after he came to the intelligence agency's attention. The identity of the second suspect was not confirmed, but police on Thursday raided a house in Greenwich where Michael Adebowale, 22, was registered as a voter.
The admission came as the Ministry of Defence named the victim of the attack in Woolwich as Drummer Lee Rigby, a 25-year-old from Rochdale who had served in the army for seven years. Rigby, who had spent six months in Afghanistan in 2009, had a two-year-old son, and had been based in London since 2011.
The suspects, shot by police shortly after the incident, remain in separate but unidentified hospitals, too badly injured to be questioned.
Detectives investigating Rigby's death also arrested a 29-year-old man and woman on suspicion of conspiracy to murder the soldier, suggesting there may have been a wider conspiracy to carry out the attack. The 29-year-old woman was arrested at a flat in Greenwich, south-east London.
Parliament's intelligence and security committee would examine the wider role of the police and MI5, David Cameron said on Thursday, an inquiry that is expected to address any lessons that may need to be learned after counterterrorism officials decided not to monitor the suspects.
Speaking in Downing Street before a visit to Woolwich, Cameron said: "You would not expect me to comment on this when a criminal investigation is ongoing, but what I can say is this: as is the normal practice in these sorts of cases, the Independent Police Complaints Commission will be able to review the actions of the police, and the intelligence and security committee will be able to do the same for the wider agencies, but nothing should be done to get in the way of their absolutely vital work."
There were some suggestions that one of the two men may have tried to visit Somalia; Whitehall sources did not deny reports that one of the suspects was stopped while trying to travel to the war-torn east African country. Somalia is feared by counterterrorism officials to be a training ground for violent jihadists.
The extremist cleric Omar Bakri Mohammad, who has been expelled from Britain, told the Guardian he had tutored Adebolajo in Islam after he converted to the religion in 2003. He was the former leader of al-Muhajiroun, an organisation banned for professing extremist views. Mohammad described Adebolajo as a shy man who had been angered by the Iraq invasion, and who would ask questions about when violence was justified.
Adebolajo had a Muslim name, Mujaahid, which means one who engages in jihad. He went to meetings of the now banned Islamist organisation from around 2004 to 2011, but stopped attending those meetings, and those of its successor organisations, two years ago.
The soldier's murder is being treated as a terrorist incident. Thursday saw another meeting of the government crisis committee Cobra, chaired by Cameron. However, so far the national threat level from al-Qaida-inspired terrorism remains unchanged, suggesting that officials do not believe Britain faces a wave of similar attacks.
The immediate focus is on the criminal investigation, which on Thursday saw detectives from Scotland Yard's counterterrorism command raid five addresses in London, and one in Lincolnshire that was the Adebolajo family home.
Sources stressed that the investigation was at an early stage, but detectives are examining whether the arrested woman was in a relationship with one of the two men detained on Wednesday, and what the links are between the four people they currently have in custody. The arrests are a clear signal that counterterrorism detectives suspect the attackers may not have acted alone.
Adebolajo's mother moved her family out of London to Lincolnshire in an attempt to remove him from the influence of a street gang. But Michael Adebolajo returned to the capital to go to university. The 28-year-old was a regular volunteer at the al-Muhajiroun stall outside HSBC bank on Woolwich High Street, handing out extremist literature. One witness said he had been recently seen outside Plumstead community centre encouraging an audience to go to Syria to fight.
His family were churchgoing Christians of Nigerian heritage but he converted to Islam about 10 years ago and investigators are trying to establish how he became radicalised to the point that he may have committed violence.
The murder led to condemnation from President Obama who said: "I condemn in the strongest terms the appalling attack against a British service member in Woolwich on May 22. The United States stands resolute with the United Kingdom, our ally and friend, against violent extremism and terror.
There can be absolutely no justification for such acts, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim, the police and security services responding to this horrific act and the communities they serve, and the British people.Our special relationship with the United Kingdom is especially important during times of trial."
Among British authorities there are fears of a violence and potential attempts by extremist groups such as the English Defence League to exploit the tragedy. In London police said they had deployed 1,200 extra officers amid fears of a backlash. Dozens of Islamophobic incidents were reported in the wake of the murder, including attacks on four mosques.
Police tried to rebut claims of a delayed response saying they were first called to reports of a man being attacked in the street at 14.20. Four minutes later they were told by witnesses that one attacker had a gun, at which point, 14.24, officers in an armed response vehicle which patrols London's streets, were ordered to the scene.
Five minutes later, at 14.29, the first unarmed officers arrived at the scene, and at 14.34 armed officers arrived and two of them opened fire, and a Taser was also fired.

'The enemy is everywhere': Former MI5 head calls for people to spy on their neighbours following murder of soldier Lee Rigby 

  • Dame Stella Rimington said members of the public have to be the Government's 'eyes and ears'
  • 78-year-old, who spoke at the Hay Festival, was MI5's first female director 
Former head of MI5 Dame Stella Rimington has called for British people to inform security services if they suspect their neighbours maybe extremists
Former head of MI5 Dame Stella Rimington has called for British people to inform security services if they suspect their neighbours maybe extremists
The former head of MI5 Dame Stella Rimington has called for British people to inform security services if they suspect their neighbours maybe extremists. 

Dame Stella, who supports the Government’s controversial ‘snoopers’ charter’, said people need to be more alert because it is impossible for security services to spot every threat.

She called for a wartime vigilance and for people to be the Government’s ‘eyes and ears’ following the killing of Lee Rigby.

The 78-year-old, who was MI5’s first female Director General, said: ‘The community has the responsibility to act as the eyes and ears, as they did during the war … where there were all these posters up saying the walls have ears and the enemy is everywhere.

‘There have often been indications in the community, whether it’s Muslim or anywhere else, that people are becoming extremists and spouting hate phrases.’
Dame Stella said security services had to prioritise the most dangerous threats because ‘thousands’ of people were being radicalised in Britain.

She said further terror attacks on the UK were inevitable unless the country became a ‘police state’.

Her comments, made at the Hay Festival, were prompted following the killing of 25-year-old soldier Lee Rigby by alleged Islamist fanatics Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, in Woolwich last Wednesday.

Dame Stella said the Woolwich killing was classified as a ‘terrorist attack’ because of the ideology behind the attack. 
It has now emerged that Adebolajo made a second attempt to travel to Somalia to join extremist groups after failing in 2010. 
The killing has raised questions about MI5 after it also emerged the two suspects were known to them.
Adebolajo was detained in Kenya in 2010 after trying to join a terrorist group.

Woolwich attack: soldier's 'killer' in dock on terror link three years ago

One of the alleged killers of Drummer Lee Rigby appeared in court in Kenya suspected of leading a group of Islamists trying to join terrorists in Somalia.

Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo, 2nd right, in the dock in Kenya in 2010.

The Sunday Telegraph can disclose that Michael Adebolajo was held by police close to the Somali border with a band of "radicalised" Muslim youths who wanted to join the notorious al-Shabaab group.
He was deported to Britain after he appeared in court in Mombasa in November 2010.
Two months previously the head of MI5 had warned that Britons were training in Somalia and it was "only a matter of time before we see terrorism on our streets inspired by those who are today fighting alongside al-Shabaab". It also emerged that the other suspect in the soldier’s murder, Michael Adebowale, 22, was detained by police in London two months ago after shopkeepers complained about a group of Muslim activists.
The disclosures raise further questions about the monitoring by the security services of Adebowale and Adebolajo, 28, whom sources have said was known to MI5 but not assessed as a "threat to life".
In other developments: 

  • On Saturday night a further three men, aged 21, 24 and 28, were arrested in south-east London on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder. Police used Tasers to detain two of them and were searching four addresses.
  • Calls were made for Anjem Choudary, the leader of the al-Muhajiroun group to which Adebolajo has been closely linked, to be subject to a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measure, the successor to control orders;
  • Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, uses an article in The Sunday Telegraph to warn public bodies, including the police and judges, that it is time for them to bring the full weight of the law to bear on extremists and not be hampered by political correctness;
  • A leading historian who was a member of a Whitehall panel intended to tackle extremist Muslim preaching at universities told how officials opened a "dialogue" with a body that seemed to endorse aspects of extremism;
  • In what was feared to be a copycat attack in Paris, a uniformed soldier was knifed in the throat by a man said to be "bearded and of North African origin", who was on the run on Saturday night. The soldier was badly hurt in the attack, which police were treating as a terrorist incident;
  • The father of Damilola Taylor, the boy murdered in 2000 in south-east London, told how he had mentored Adebowale before the former gang member turned to radical Islam.
A report on MI5 and MI6’s knowledge of and assessment of the two suspects will be given this week to MPs on the parliamentary committee that scrutinises the security services.
The Sunday Telegraph has established that Adebolajo was arrested by Kenyan authorities in the coastal town of Lamu, before being taken to Mombasa, where he was detained. He appeared in court in late November 2010 alongside other alleged Islamists. He and the others, who were said to age from 18 to 22, were remanded to a local police station. A court report at the time said he was a "Nigerian who had a British passport" and spelt his name incorrectly. Sources in the country confirmed his identity yesterday and said Adebolajo was subsequently deported. He later complained that he had been mistreated.
Adebolajo is understood to have said in court that he wanted access to legal services and to talk to the British Ambassador to Kenya. He also complained that the police said he was a Christian, when he was a converted Muslim.
"He was very arrogant, he was restrained and handcuffed very well," the source said. "We deported him back to the UK. When he was back in the UK he complained about us, that we tortured him. The British embassy in Nairobi wrote to us about the complaint, we told them that we did not torture him. I do not know if the letter arrived but that was what we wrote to them."
According to newspaper reports at the time, the group boarded a speedboat from Lamu Island to the village of Kizingitini before their arrest. Police suspected Adebolajo of masterminding a plan for the youths to join al-Shabaab in Somalia. Pamphlets connected with al-Shabaab were recovered during the police operation.
The other youths who appeared with Adebolajo said they were recruited from a mosque in Mombasa by a radical imam. While in Lamu, they spent time at an isolated madrassa. Lamu, 68 miles from the Somali border, is considered the key crossing point to the country and is a major area of operations for Kenyan security forces.
The case raises questions about why Adebolajo was not put under greater surveillance or even prosecuted after his deportation from Kenya. Under the Terrorism Act 2006, it is an offence to travel or intend to travel overseas to commit acts of terrorism or take part in terrorist training.
Evidence from the Kenyan authorities could have been used to prosecute Adebolajo.
Several Britons have been convicted of similar offences, including the white Muslim convert Richard Dart and his co-defendants earlier this year. They admitted planning to travel to Pakistan to seek terrorist training, and had discussed attacking the military-supporting town of Royal Wootton Bassett in Wiltshire.
Kenyan police believe that Jermaine Grant, a Briton who is on trial in Mombasa on charges of possessing explosives and planning an attack in the port city, has links to al-Shabaab. Grant’s alleged accomplice Samantha Lewthwaite, the widow of the 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay, is on the run after slipping a police dragnet. Some reports suggest she may have crossed the border into Somalia.
Jonathan Evans, the then head of MI5, warned in September 2010 that a "significant number of UK residents" were training with al-Shabaab. At the time security services said Somalia was the most significant destination for foreign jihadis. The Foreign Office said of Adebolajo’s arrest and deportation: "We do not comment on individual cases."
The arrest of the other suspect, Adebowale, two months ago in London, followed complaints from shopkeepers about the activities of extremist Muslims, sources said.
More details of his life were disclosed by Damilola Taylor’s father, Richard, who recalled how he tried to mentor the suspect when he was younger.
Mr Taylor is Nigerian-born while both suspects are of Nigerian descent. He said: "He [Adebowale] was a young lovable boy, quiet. Suddenly I started hearing that he’s getting involved in issues around gangs and drugs and I was not very happy with that. I’m terribly shocked."
The murder of Drummer Rigby has caused concern on several levels across Whitehall, highlighting apparent failures to rein in extremist preaching and the radicalisation of young Muslim men. Writing in The Sunday Telegraph today, Mr Pickles urges politicians, judges and the public sector to take a robust line against extremists.
"Our laws are there to ensure preachers of hate are not given a licence to incite violence or public disorder," he writes. "And the police and judiciary should use their powers when the line has been crossed."
He urges members of the public not to "stand idly by" and for broadcasters not to give fanatics the oxygen of publicity. Local authorities should not give taxpayers’ money to organisations that promote segregation or shelter extremists, he adds.
A senior academic who advised the Government on combating Muslim extremism in British universities today condemns the showpiece counter-terrorism strategy as a "sad shambles".
Professor Michael Burleigh, a research fellow in modern history and the history of terrorism at Buckingham University, was invited to take part in a Home Office and Department for Business advisory group two years ago, which helped update the £63 million-a-year "Prevent" strategy.
Writing in The Sunday Telegraph today, Prof Burleigh says civil servants in charge of the "entrenched bureaucracy" worked to undermine the experts and even met with one Islamic group that he regarded as "the main problem".
Prevent was set up under the Labour government in 2005 after the London bombings of July 7. After the last general election, Theresa May, the Home Secretary, commissioned a review because she regarded it as highly flawed, and was critical of the higher education sector’s "complacency" in dealing with the Islamists on campus. She later admitted that Prevent had handed taxpayers’ money to hard-line Muslim groups that promote extremist views.
One senior counter-terrorism source said: "Would a university allow someone to speak on campus if they were advocating the best way to be a paedophile or an armed robber? No, they would not. But they allow speakers who advocate terrorism."
Greenwich University last night began an investigation into radicalism on its premises after confirming that the older suspect had been a student there.
Research by Student Rights, a group set up to tackle extremism on campus, found that radical Islamist preachers addressed students at 200 official events in the 12 months to March 2013, including at Greenwich.
In February its Islamic society invited Dr Khalid Fikry, who has given speeches in which he appears to suggest that Shia Muslims believe "raping a Sunni woman is a matter that pleases Allah" and stated that "Shia are one of the worst and greatest enemies of our Ummah (community) nowadays". Most recently he spoke at the University of Westminster’s Islamic Society.
University Islamic societies are grouped under the umbrella of the Federation of Student Islamic Societies (Fosis). It has hosted extremist speakers including Azzam Tamimi, who supports the Palestinian group Hamas and has spoken in support of martyrdom, and Haitham al-Haddad, who believes that music is a "prohibited and fake message of love and peace". Fosis has been criticised by Mrs May and Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, for its failure to "fully challenge terrorist and extremist ideology".
Its chairman, Omar Ali, said last night: "There has been no investigation or inquiry that has identified a link between the activities of Islamic Societies and acts of terrorism. There’s no evidence to suggest there is more extremism on university campuses than in any other sector of society."
The murder in Woolwich, south-east London, has led to calls for internet companies to take down extremist material from the web, but those were rejected by Google. Speaking at the Telegraph Hay Festival yesterday, Eric Schmidt, its executive chairman, said the company had no plans to change its policy.
"We cannot prima facie identify it and take it down. It establishes censorship as a slippery slope; where do we stop?" he said.

Frans Von Papen, (Jesuit) Hitlers mentor, chancellor of Germany (June 1932 - March 1933) and first vice-chancellor of the Third Reich, stated in his book: "My Conversations with Hitler": "Hitler has put into practice the high ideals of the papacy". This statement was made in reference to the death camps. As chancellor, von Papen's first act was to dissolve the Reichstag; his second was lifting the ban on Hitler's "Brown Shirts" (SA); he then integrated Catholic youth groups into the "Hitler Youth": setting up the civil and political base for Hitler and the Nazi Party to move into power. "Mein Kampf" waswritten for Hitler by Jesuit Staempfle. As papal nuncio to Germany (1917-1929),

Archbishop Eugenio Pacelli worked with Germany's Illuminati bankers (Chase Manhattan, in New York City, and Bank of England funneled money's through Credit Swiss (Vatican bank) to the Reich's Bank in Berlin) and industrialist's (I.G. Farben), establishing thefinancial and industrial base for the Third Reich: WW II was in its planning stage while WW I was still in full swing. Thousands of Jews were hidden in the Vatican, as a precaution, in case Hitler lost the war.

"Yea the time cometh when he that killeth you will think that he doeth God service." (John 16:2)

The fact that the Vatican entered into a concordat with Hitler [signed in the Vatican by Von Papen and Cardinal Secretary of State: Eugenio Pacelli (later Pope Pius XII), 20 July 1933], as with Mussolini, Franco and Salazar is no secret. But the Vatican's attempt to seduce Hitler into extending the provisions of that concordat to include every country he raped and pillaged is not so well known, but is recorded in Hitler's own words in his book: "Hitler's Secret Conversations" i.e. "I have shown myself unresponsive to the attempts of the Vatican toward the extension of the provisions of the concordat to embrace the newly acquired territories of the Reich. The Saar, Sudetenland, Bohemia and Moravia, the Reichsgau Danszig-East Prussia, the Warthegau, a large part of Silesia and Alsace-Lorraine have, in fact, no relations with the Roman Catholic Church which are supported by formal international agreement" (page 516).

MI5 had been monitoring the two fanatics responsible for the slaughter of a young soldier near Woolwich barracks for eight years.

The Security Service is facing an inquiry by MPs amid a raft of devastating revelations about the killers’ known links to Islamist extremism.

One of the pair – Michael Adebolajo – was so high profile he was photographed outside Paddington Green police station six years ago behind notorious hate preacher Anjem Choudary.

He was even intercepted by officials as he attempted to travel to Somalia to fight alongside Islamist terrorists last year. 

It also emerged that Adebolajo was a violent ex-prisoner who was a member of a banned terrorist group.

Incredibly, he was said to have been preaching jihad on the streets of Woolwich earlier this week, only a few hundred yards from where 25-year-old Army Drummer Lee Rigby – a married father – was beheaded.

As MI5 faced accusations that they let the men slip through the net, David Cameron ordered a full intelligence review by a Westminster committee.

On a dramatic day:

  • Sources confirmed that 28-year-old Adebolajo once served a jail sentence for violence;
  • Tory minister Baroness Warsi attacked broadcasters who give airtime to ‘extremist voices – idiots and nutters’ after Choudary gave interviews on BBC TV and Channel 4 News;
  • It was revealed Adebolajo was once intercepted by police as he attempted to travel to Somalia to fight alongside Al-Shabaab;
  • The Conservative MP Bob Stewart demanded foreign-born preachers of hate should be ‘put on a plane out’ of Britain;
  • Heavily-armed Scotland Yard officers made dawn raids at six homes across London and in Lincoln;
  • A man and a woman, both aged 29, were arrested on suspicion of joining the murderous conspiracy.

Previously: Michael Adebolajo was in a group of Muslim extremists who fought with police outside the Old Bailey in 2006.
He had been arguing that he had the right to 'behead those who insult Islam'

Adeolajo, 28, and his friend remained under armed guard in separate hospitals being treated for gunshot wounds. They are expected to recover fully.

The second suspect was reported last night by news outlets including Channel 4 News and The Times to be Michael Adebowale, 22, of Greenwich, south-east London.

The victim was named yesterday as Drummer Rigby, a veteran of the Afghanistan war who has a two-year-old son.

The young soldier was run over and hacked to death with a meat cleaver and knives near his barracks in Woolwich, South East London. 

Minutes later the two Islamists were gunned down by firearms officers after charging towards them in an apparent attempt to kill themselves.

The atrocity triggered a wave of national revulsion as the Prime Minster branded it an attack on the British way of life and a ‘betrayal of Islam’.


Man, 22, is fourth person arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder over Woolwich attack

Armed police have arrested a 22-year-old man today on suspicion of conspiracy to murder Drummer Lee Rigby. 
Counter-terrorism officers supported by armed police swooped on an address in Highbury Grove, north London, Scotland Yard said.
It comes after officers last night arrested three people on suspicion of conspiring to murder the solider.

Three more men have been arrested for the death of Drummer Lee Rigby last week
Police with machine guns stormed three separate addresses in simultaneous raids across south-east London between 6pm and 6.30pm.
On the Lamb Estate in Greenwich, officers in balaclavas charged in to a first-floor flat and used a Taser on one suspect.
They arrested a Somali man and another unarmed man, both in their 20s.
Neighbour Tariq Mahmood, 54, a businessman, said: 'My daughter is traumatised. This is just a quiet estate. I can't believe this happened.'
Officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command supported by specialist firearms officers raided a separate fourth-floor flat 300 yards away, believed to be the home of relatives of the Somali.
 
The arrests came as authorities in France investigated whether the killing was linked to an attack on a French soldier who was stabbed in the neck in a busy shopping area outside Paris today.
The two men suspected of murdering Drummer Rigby, 25, in Woolwich remain in hospital after being shot by police when they charged towards armed officers on Wednesday, while a 29-year-old man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder has now been released on bail, police confirmed tonight.

The two men suspected of murdering Drummer Rigby, who have been identified as Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale, 22, remain in a stable condition in hospital, police added.
Drummer Rigby was hit by a car and then attacked with weapons including a knife and a meat cleaver but the cause of his death has not been confirmed by a post-mortem examination.
The young father's murder has provoked a backlash of anger across the country, with many incidents of mosques being attacked, racial abuse and comments made on social media.

Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that the parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) is to investigate following the disclosure that Adebolajo and Adebowale were known to MI5.
Police refused to comment on reports tonight that Adebowale was arrested two months ago.
Two women aged 29 and 31 have both been released without charge after they were held on Thursday on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, while a number of other people not directly involved with the attack have been charged over malicious comments made on social networking sites.
Searches have also been taking place at three other addresses in south London, one in east London, one in north London and one in Saxilby, Lincolnshire, the former home of Adebolajo.
French president Francois Hollande said authorities were investigating any possible link between the Paris attack, which was not believed to have seriously injured the 23-year-old soldier, and that on Drummer Rigby.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said he was unable to say whether police were connecting the incidents.
The father of murdered schoolboy Damilola Taylor said tonight that he had acted as a mentor to Adebowale, who was known to his friends as Toby.

Asked about Wednesday's events, Richard Taylor told ITV News: 'I was terribly shocked at what I saw that day.
'It's a different Toby or Michael that I was seeing that day. I don't believe it was anything Islamic.'
Mr Taylor, whose son was just ten when he was killed in the capital in 2000, said he had tried to help Adebowale after he was bullied at school and then became involved in drugs and gangs.
But he said that when he spoke to Adebowale two months ago, he told him that he had changed his ways as he had become a Muslim.
He went on:'Having seen how my own son was stabbed to death, made me feel that... whatever happens, they will still be alive, they will still be on the street or maybe they will take them away from the public or change their faces. They don't deserve to live.'

Meanwhile the BNP has been accused of cynically exploiting the killing to further its 'own poisonous ends' after the far right group announced it would be demonstrating in Woolwich next Saturday.
And up to 2,000 people took part in a EDL march in Newcastle today, which was planned before Wednesday's attack. Earlier this month it was predicted that 500 would turn up.
EDL supporters sang 'RIP Lee Rigby' as they marched through the city while a Union flag with his name on was displayed to cheers. Police said three people were arrested for allegedly making racist tweets before it had begun.
Drummer Rigby's family yesterday paid tribute to the soldier they described as their 'hero'.
'Lee's dream growing up was always to join the Army, which he succeeded in doing. He was dedicated and loved his job,' they said in a statement.
Drummer Rigby's wife Rebecca, mother of their two-year-old son Jack, said through tears that he was 'a devoted father'.
Along with the floral tributes at the corner of John Wilson Street and Artillery Place where the attack took place, many hundreds more have been left outside the entrance to Woolwich barracks a few hundred yards away, where Drummer Rigby was based.
A book of condolence has been opened at Woolwich Town Hall, where opening hours have been extended over the bank holiday weekend to allow the public to pay their respects.
Professor David Maguire, vice-chancellor of the University of Greenwich, confirmed that Adebolajo had been a student there for two years but had been thrown out because his 'academic progress was unsatisfactory'.
Adebowale had not studied there, he said.
The professor added: 'The university takes its responsibilities very seriously in terms of preventing extremism. We are committed to ensuring that the university is a safe and secure place of study and debate within the confines of the law. We have diverse communities on campus and these include a range of different faiths.
'Given the seriousness of issues raised, the university is setting up an investigation into the association of these two individuals with the university, to assess whether there is any evidence of extremism in the university (past or present) and whether we need to update our policies and practices.'

He added: ‘This country will be absolutely resolute in its stand against violent extremism and terror. We will never give in to terror or terrorism in any of its forms.’

The list of questions faced by the authorities was growing fast as evidence of the danger the two men posed to Britain grew.

Sources said both men featured in ‘a number’ of counter terrorism investigations in recent years but were not seen as a ‘threat to life’.

Yet Adebolajo, who was born in South London but is of Nigerian descent, was linked to Choudary as long ago as 2003.

The former fitness instructor is believed to have been a member of Al Muhajiroun, which was led by the hate preacher until it was banned by the Government.

He was jailed at least once for violence and friends said he was a member of a gang of knife-wielding street robbers in his hometown of Romford, Essex.

Prime Minister David Cameron

Footage showed him standing directly behind Choudary during a protest outside Paddington Green police station in April 2007. 

It is believed he may have also been held by the Met in 2006 after protesting outside the Old Bailey during the trial of four Muslim men.

The defendants were ultimately jailed for their part in protests at the Danish embassy in London against cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad.

Message: A handwritten note was also left by one member of the public left distraught by what happened to the murdered man Lee Rigby

Men linked to Al Muhajiroun gathered outside the high security police station after Muslim convert Abu Izzadeen was arrested for inciting terrorism.

Unbelievably, it is also claimed he was intercepted by police as he attempted to travel to Somalia last year to fight jihad.

Sources said Adebolajo wanted to join Al-Shabaab, a notorious Al Qaeda affiliate responsible for terrorising the region.

The 28-year-old was seen as recently as last week wearing white robes and a cap as he preached outside a branch of Poundland in Woolwich.

'This is going to be a big blow to the new director of MI5, who has only been in the job for a couple of weeks'

Professor Anthony Glees, University of Buckingham

A woman believed to be his girlfriend was arrested during a raid at his home in a block of council flats in Woolwich.

Security officials are currently monitoring more than 2,000 suspects and sources point out they must target their resources on the fanatics considered to pose the greatest danger.

They also say MI5’s resources have been dramatically increased since the July 7 bombings which has meant the number of suspects crossing the ‘radar’ of surveillance teams has itself soared.

Former home: Michael Adebolajo lived in this house in Romford with his parents while he converted to Islam as a teenager

Professor Anthony Glees, director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, said MI5 made the ‘wrong call’. 

He said: ‘This is going to be a big blow to the new director of MI5, who has only been in the job for a couple of weeks.’

But Patrick Mercer, a Tory MP and counter terrorism expert, said it is ‘impossible’ for police and security services to keep us ‘100 per cent secure’.

Shocking footage emerged this evening of one of the suspected Woolwich attackers, covered in blood and saying: 'An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.'

The footage, obtained by ITV News, shows the moments after the brutal attack.

It shows the suspect, wearing a dark jacket, jeans and a beanie hat, calmly walking towards the camera with what appears to be a machete and a large knife, clasped by the handles in his bloodied left hand. 

Did you witness the killing and take pictures or video of the appalling incident? Or do you know the men involved? Email us at mailonlinepictures@dailymail.co.uk. 

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

Gesticulating with both hands the man points to his own face as he says: 'We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth'

Chilling words of bloodied man is caught on film

 

The man appears to be carrying a knife and a machete in his blood-covered hands

He speaks to onlookers at the scene and apologises to the women who 'have had to witness this today'

Gesticulating with both hands - while gripping the weapons - the man points to his own face as he says: 'We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.'

Over his shoulder, a group of onlookers can be seen just a few steps from the victim.

Traffic, including an articulated lorry, has stopped on the carriageway, metres from the figure lying in the road.

The suspect, speaking clear English with a London accent, says: 'I apologise that women have had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same.

'You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don't care about you.'

In footage released by The Sun, the man can also be heard to say: 'You think David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start busting our guns you think politicians are going to die? No it's going to be the average guy, like you, and your children.'

The man tells the people at the scene: 'You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don't care about you'

The footage also shows two men being detained by police on the ground

As people stand aghast at the terrifying scene unfolding in front of them, one woman is seen pulling her shopping trolley along behind her, seemingly oblivious to the horror.

As the man finishes addressing a few members of the public, he turns back towards the victim lying on his side in the road. He then talks to a second man. A blue car is parked on the pavement, a short distance from the victim in the road.

It has significant damage to its front, with debris and markings on the walkway.

The footage also shows the brave actions of three women who appear to be tending to the victim as he lies in the middle of the road.

Witnesses film the drama as it unfolds on camera phones before being shepherded away by officers

The man who filmed the video of one of the alleged attackers has told ITV News he was assured he was in no danger.

He said the man with the bloodied hands approached him when he saw he was filming. He said he was told: 'No, no, no - it's cool, I just want to talk to you.'

He said the man had been able to escape, but wanted to talk about the incident.

ITV's footage then cuts to two men being detained by police on the ground nearby, while passers by mill around just behind them. Some are filming the drama as it unfolds on camera phones before being shepherded away by officers.

Eyewitnesses said the victim, who a local MP said was believed to be a soldier, was attacked by two men, with some suggesting the attackers tried to behead him.

Home Secretary Theresa May said: 'I have been briefed by the Metropolitan Police Commissioner and the Director General of the Security Service.

'It has been confirmed to me that a man has been brutally murdered this afternoon in south east London. Two other men were shot by armed police and they are currently receiving treatment for their injuries.

'I have called a COBR (Cabinet Office Briefing Room) meeting where I will receive further briefing. This is a sickening and barbaric attack.'

David Cameron described the attack as 'truly shocking'.

Downing Street said the Prime Minister, who was planning to stay in Paris overnight after meeting the French president, would be returning tonight instead.

Hoodie: A Help for Heroes top like the one the murdered soldier was wearing

The soldier killed by two crazed fanatics just yards from the Woolwich Barracks was wearing a Help for Heroes top when he was attacked.

The young serviceman was hit by a car and crushed into a road sign on the street in south-east London before he was brutally murdered.

Video footage showed the dead man was wearing a dark blue top with white writing on it - which is believed to be the same as the Help for Heroes hoodie (right).

The killers attacked him with a collection of weapons including meat cleavers and knives before waiting for police to arrive, their hands covered in blood.

Today members of the public were donating to the charity which helps wounded troops with their rehabilitation.

One man called Allan Beattie who donated to the charity wrote: 'In memory of the soldier brutally murdered yesterday - rest in peace - and a thank you to all of our brave service men and women who do so much for us'

Kelly Alexander, who also gave to the charity wrote: 'Last night a black cloud went over our country,it will never be the same again,Rip to this young man brutally slain in his home country.I salute you x'

I SHOULD KEEP THEM TALKING SO THEY DON'T KILL AGAIN': MOTHER ON BUS WHO CONFRONTED THE BLOOD-SOAKED TERRORISTS 

Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, 48, was passing on the number 53 bus when she saw the scene unfolding.

As a trained first aider, she raced off the bus, believing the incident to be an accident, and immediately checked the victim’s pulse.

But when she looked up she saw one of the killers standing over her, covered in blood with a gun and a kitchen knife who ordered her to ‘move off the body’.

She told the Daily Telegraph, one of the murderers told her he wanted ‘to start a war in London tonight’.

‘Being a cub leader I have my first aid so when I saw this guy on the floor I thought it was an accident then I saw the guy was dead and I could not feel any pulse,’ she said.

‘And then when I went up there was this black guy with a revolver and a kitchen knife, he had what looked like butcher’s tools and he had a little axe, to cut the bones, and two large knives and he said ‘move off the body’.

‘So I thought ‘OK, I don’t know what is going on here’ and he was covered with blood. I thought I had better start talking to him before he starts attacking somebody else. I thought these people usually have a message so I said ‘what do you want?’

‘I asked him if he did it and he said yes and I said why? And he said because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries, he said he was a British solider and I said really and he said ‘I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan they have nothing to do there.’

‘I started to talk to him and I started to notice more weapons and the guy behind him with more weapons as well. By then, people had started to gather around. So I thought OK, I should keep him talking to me before he noticed everything around him.

‘He was not high, he was not on drugs, he was not an alcoholic or drunk, he was just distressed, upset. He was in full control of his decisions and ready to everything he wanted to do.

‘I said ‘right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose, what would you like to do?’ and he said I would like to stay and fight.’

The suspect in the black hat then went to speak to someone else and Mrs Loyau-Kennett tried to engage with the other man in the light coat.

She said: ‘The other one was much shier and I went to him and I said ‘well, what about you? Would you like to give me what you have in your hands?’ I did not want to say weapons but I thought it was better having them aimed on one person like me rather than everybody there, children were starting to leave school as well.’

A Cub Scout leader who confronted an Islamic fanatic after he had executed a soldier in a Woolwich street said today: 'I wasn't scared. Rather me than a child.'

The moment fearless mother-of-two Ingrid Loyau-Kennett remonstrated with one of the killers, whose hands were blood-soaked and still carried knives, was filmed in the aftermath of the terror attack. 

Today the suspect who gave a chilling rant to camera moments after the murder was named online as British Nigerian Michael Adebolajo - who is known by the Muslim name Mujahid.

48-year-old Ingrid Loyau-Kennett jumped off her bus when she saw the tragic soldier's body lying in the south-east London street, checked his pulse and then tried to talk to the men who hacked him to death.

After pleading with them to hand her the weapons, one told her: 'We want to start a war in London tonight'.

She replied: 'Right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose'.

David Cameron today paid tribute to Mrs Loyau-Kennett in a statement outside Number 10, and said: 'She spoke for all of us'.

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

Confrontation: Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, 48, was seen remonstrating with one of the killers whose blood-covered hands were carrying at least one knife used to hack the soldier to death



Horrifying: Ingrid stands looking at the body in the street as two women comfort the dead man who lies stricken in the street

Fervent: The two young women who had comforted the dead man speak to one of the killers while the 48-year-old Cub Leader speaks to the other in the 20 minutes before police arrived

Drama: Hours after the shocking murder, footage emerged of this man with bloodied hands carrying a knife and a machete explaining the reasons for the killing. He has been named online as British Nigerian Michael Adebolajo, who is known by the Muslim name Mujahid

‘Confronting extremism is a job for us all. And the fact that our communities will unite in doing this was vividly demonstrated by the brave cub pack leader - Ingrid Loyau-Kennett,' he said.

'When told by the attacker that he wanted to start a war in London she replied “You’re going to lose. It’s only you versus many.” She spoke for us all.’

Footage emerged from the scene of the murder soon afterwards yesterday, with a video released by ITV News, showing the first picture of a man with bloodied hands, carrying weapons and saying: 'We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you'.

Witnesses said they apparently  shouted 'Allahu Akbar', which means 'God is great' in Arabic while hacking the poor victim to death.

After the attack, one of the men said in a clear south London accent: 'You people will never be safe.

'An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.'

An eyewitness said Michael Adeboljo had been seen preaching in Woolwich town centre last week.

Jamie France, 29, who witnessed the attack from his 18th floor flat overlooking the scene, said his mother had recognised him instantly from film footage shot after the attack.

He said: ‘I spoke to my mum on the phone and showed her the video footage from the internet, and she told me that she recognised one of the men with the knife.

‘She said she'd seen him last week preaching in Woolwich town centre. She said she remembers him because he'd been really angry and was saying all this political stuff.’

In broad daylight, he and his accomplice had just repeatedly stabbed and tried to behead an off-duty soldier in front of passers-by. 

The two black men in their 20s then waited calmly for the police to arrive before charging at officers brandishing a rusty revolver, knives and meat cleavers. 

They were then shot by armed officers, and both suspects are under guard in separate hospitals this morning. 

But it was the brave female Cub Scout leader, from Cornwall, whose son lives in Woolwich, who confronted the armed men.

Chilling words of bloodied man is caught on film


Shouting: The alleged killer, who went by the Muslim name Muhajid, said: 'We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you'

'I saw a man on the road, obviously injured and a car badly crashed I assumed it was a road accident, although the car was funny on the pavement, it was not coming on the road,' she told ITV's Daybreak.

'When I approached the body there was a lady cradling him and then the guy, the most excited one of the two said, don’t go too close to the body.

'I could see a butcher's knife and you know these axes butchers have to cut -that's what he had and blood all over him. I thought what the heck what happened here?

'Okay I thought obviously he was a bit excited, so I thought the thing was just to talk to him'.

Message: A handwritten note was also left by one member of the public left distraught by what happened to the murdered man

Attached to a bunch of white roses, the neatly written note is from a person who didn't know the victim but felt moved to visit where he died

Ms Loyau-Kennett said she was not trained in any way to deal with the situation - she used to be a teacher.

'I know it’s big today, for me he was just a regular guy, just a bit upset. He was not on drugs, he was not drunk.’

She said the man told her 'Don't touch, I killed him.'

When she questioned him, he said 'He is a British soldier, he killed people, he killed Muslim people, in Muslim countries. ‘

Ms Loyau-Kennett explained the man holding the knife told her it was for 'all the bomb droppings and killings, blindly, women.'

When asked if she feared for her life she replied: 'Better me than the children. There were mothers with children. It was important.

MPs have praised her 'extraordinary bravery' today.

Shocked well-wishers also left floral tributes at the main entrance to the Royal Artillery barracks on Repository Road Woolwich.

A green Help For Heroes T-shirt had also been left as a tribute.

One message says: 'So very sorry, our thoughts are with your family, friends and comrades. Deepest Sympathy.'

Another read: 'To the poor young man who lost his life on this very sad day, I never knew you but you will stay in my heart forever. I'm so sorry that I couldn't stop them vile criminals. I will never forget this and you will always live on in my heart and many others. I pray you are at peace now.' The footage also shows two men being detained by police on the ground

Aftermath: The men waited for 20 minutes saying they wanted to shoot the police, but were gunned down themselves and are shown here being detained

Weapon: This battered car was used to crush the soldier against a sign in front. The streak of blood in front shows how they dragged his body into the street

A third tribute said: "Dear the poor soldier that lost your life, you didn't deserve what happened to you. You fought for us and then this happened. You are always in our hearts.'

A group of military wives - some pushing prams - came to lay flowers at the main gates of the barracks today to pay their respects to the dead soldier.

One of the women, in her 20s, who did not want to be named, said: 'We are a group of military wives.

'We live just outside the base. We are all just very numb at the moment - shaken up and very shocked. It could have been any one of our husbands.

'He was a young guy who cared very much about his job, like they all do. I think he was in training.'
