Sky News is reporting that Security sources have told Sky News more than 400 former fighters are now believed to be back in Britain.
UK authorities are facing an increased terror threat from battle-hardened fighters returning from Mosul and other conflict zones in Iraq and Syria.
The authorities are said to believe there is a growing risk the UK could suffer the kind of mass gun and bomb attacks seen in France and Belgium recently.
There are thought to be more than 400 returning, battle hardened, fighters who have been trained in the use of weapons and the construction of improvised explosive devices.
Some 12,000 military weapons were discovered in Spain a few days ago. If we assume that not all batches of smuggled weapons are found, we could find ourselves with a small army to tackle. Not just a lone-wolf with a car and a knife!
Former Scotland Yard Specialist Firearms Officer and author Tony Long said combating an attack launched by a well-trained returning jihadist could be a tough prospect.
It has long been the view of a number of well-connected friends of mine, that the attacks that we see form time to time commited by individuals or small groups, though there actions are clamimed by larger organsiation like ISIS, are infact not really the fight that ISIS and other jahadist groups are planing.
ISIS have very little interest in killing one policeman, for even a few dozen people here or there. ISIS want to take territory. Islam, in their eyes, is a concerning religion, that is to take over Europe.
Tony Long says “These are combat-hardened soldiers. They might not be trained in the way that NATO might train their soldiers but they’ve seen more close quarter conflict and more urban fighting than probably most members of the British Armed Forces and you have to respect that.
“Of course they’re bringing that knowledge back with them to the UK and it’s very very difficult because of the legal restrictions that are put on the security services and the police to actually monitor all of these people.”
It is very possible that Britain has a very real growing militant Islamic army growing here in our very midst.
Some returning Islamist fighters are being jailed, for example, Imran Khawaja, 29, from west London, is currently serving 12 years in prison after he faked his own death in Syria in an attempt to sneak back into the UK undetected. Among other things, Imran was pictured posing with the severed heads of Syrian soldiers during his six months in the country. What of the fighters who decided against posing for pictures?
Imran was arrested as he tried to re-enter the UK through the port of Dover and later admitted preparing for acts of terrorism, attending a camp, receiving training and possessing firearms.
The Guardian Newspaper states that, the UK role in brokering the UN’s resolution condemning Israel re its policy of building settlements on occupied Palestinian territory has left, ‘the UK on a collision course not just with Israel, but at odds with Donald Trump.’
There are at least three much more important issues that arise from the UK involvement in this disastrous resolution.
First, and here I will not go into all the biblical and historical evidence surrounding the facts of this situation, You can find out much for the background from John McTernan on the H&H report here.
But the facts is that it is not just Israel and Donald Trump that the UK is on a collision course with, But God. God is building the nation of Israel and will protect the nation of Israel and Jerusalem will be where Jesus returns at his second coming.
And before you get all huffy with me and go off about all the evils of Israel as a nation, give the time to watch John McTernan on the H&H report, and get a little of the UN/media/leftist propaganda out of your mind.
Second, we open the UK up to punishment for standing against the Lord’s anointed nation. Time is short and maybe another time I will look at the biblical support and the historic evidence for the punishment that God meters out to nations that stand against Israel.
Third, we are partakers in the events that are setting up the middle east for a major war. From the time of George W Bush and then accelerating through Barack Husain Obama, the middle east has been ripped apart. In some ways, it might be heard to see how things can get and worse, but they can.
The Muslim nations surrounding Israel have all sworn at times in the past that they will destroy Israel. If Israel is forced to return to what are sometimes referred to as pre-1967 borders, Israel will be left with an area of land that is indefensible against attack from it enemies.
Pushing Israel up against the wall like this will give them little or no alternative but to fight back, either against the coalition of 70 countries, that are trying to cripple the state of Israel or against the local nations, should they attack.
Be very, very careful, if they can, the media will persuade you that it is always Israel that is in the wrong and the Palestinians who are seeking peace. This is very far from the truth.
I can not say more now, time is running out and I want to post this today, but one last thing. PRAY, Pray for Israel and for God’s hand of protection on Israel, but also on us, if or when we move against Israel.
There are lots of important decisions being mage about Brexit. Keep Britain in your prayers.
There are still many people trying to derail Brexit. Let us seek God for the freedom for the UK government and a godly government to lead us.
More news coming.
