WikiLeaks Docs Reveal London As Al-Qaeda Global Hub

File-London_(European_Parliament_constituency)At least 35 terrorists incarcerated at Guantánamo Bay were sent to fight against the West after being indoctrinated by extremist preachers in “Londonistan,” according to secret files obtained by the Telegraph via WikiLeaks:

Abu Qatada and Abu Hamza, two preachers who lived off state benefits after claiming asylum, are identified by the American authorities as the key recruiters responsible for sending dozens of extremists from throughout the world to Pakistan and Afghanistan via London mosques.

The leaked WikiLeaks documents, written by senior US military commanders at Guantánamo Bay, illustrate how, for two decades, Britain effectively became a crucible of terrorism, with dozens of extremists, home-grown and from abroad, radicalised here.

Finsbury Park mosque, in north London, is described as a “haven” for extremists. United States intelligence officials concluded the mosque served as “an attack planning and propaganda production base”.

The files will raise questions over why the Government and security services failed to take action sooner to tackle the capital’s reputation as a staging post for terrorism, which became so established that the city was termed “Londonistan”.

The documents show that at least 35 detainees at Guantánamo had passed through Britain before being sent to fight against Allied forces in Afghanistan. This is thought to be more than from any other Western nation…

    But the security services did take action. Elsewhere in the documents is revealed that an Al-Qaeda assassin was on the payroll of MI6 and a Canadian intelligence agency (there is some confusion over which one exactly, possibly CSIS).

    This isn’t exactly a big surprise for anyone who’s been to London recently or seen the degree to which local Muslims and converts have been shouting in the streets about how great 9/11 and 7/7 were and how they’re ready to do more in the name of Islam. Seriously, they’re not hiding their support for violence at all.
