Interesting article about the work of Mi5 in stopping terrorist attacks by Muslim terrorists and disident republicans.

One of the attacks stopped was an attempt by Islamic terrorists to blow up a coach full of school children.

The Muslim terrorists pose a serious threat to peace...its alawys good news hearing about Muslims or non Muslims who take the fight to the Muslim terrorists.

Also the various Irish groups should probably not be compared to ISIL or AQ. The Irish and British both committed their share of crimes against each other, but afaik neither side took things to an international level at least during the 20th century. I dont know of British or Irish criminal attacks related to the British-Irish conflict committed in lets say China. But we all know full well that ISIL and AQ will commit international criminal attacks in the name of their group.

One can not discuss Irish crimes without discussing British crimes,

Often the successes of watchers do not make the open press, and when they sometimes do, it costs in loss of some methods and sources.

Yes, the same goes with the 'listeners and decoders' - such as were at Bletchley Park and the US listening and decoding establishments during WWII.

Or this one,



Not a word about it on the ACG obviously - much more fun to spread defeatist propaganda.

Or for Stonewall - some sort of Muslims and different Muslims, working together with other Muslims to stop Muslims from executing Islamic attacks.

That's the sort of cooperation between religions we need right now
