While President Barack Obama can’t use “Islamic” and “terrorism” in the same sentence… our allies in England are busy arresting 5 different Islamic terrorist suspects linked to deadly attacks in Paris and Brussels! One was arrested this morning at Gatwick Airport in London, and charged with the “commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.”
These 5 arrests are being described as “significant” and this is a massive victory against terrorism…
LONDON—British police said Friday five people have been arrested on suspicion of terrorism after an investigation with French and Belgian authorities to address the threat in the U.K. in the wake of the Paris and Brussels attacks.
U.K. counterterrorist officials have said they were working to establish possible links to the network that struck the French capital last November.
Police described the arrests as part of a “pre-planned and intelligence-led” operation and said there is no information to suggest an attack in the U.K. was being planned.
Four of the arrests took place in Birmingham on Thursday night, while the fifth occurred at Gatwick Airport in the early hours of Friday morning. Police said three men aged 26, 40 and 59, and a 29-year-old woman were taken into custody. A 26-year-old man was arrested at Gatwick.
“This action forms part of an extensive investigation by West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit, together with the wider counterterrorism network, MI5 and international partners including Belgian and French authorities to address any associated threat to the U.K. following the attacks in Europe,” said Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale of West Midlands Police.
This is another confirmation of how much the Islamic State (ISIS) has expanded their efforts around the world, including in Western nations. Thanks to Obama’s weak foreign policy, our allies are no longer safe… America is now at risk!
