Police have arrested five suspected Islamist terrorists, working as street cleaners in London, over an alleged plan assassinate the Pope.
The men were arrested during raids at 5.45am at a rubbish depot in central London based on an intelligence tip off received overnight.
The suspects, aged 26, 27, 36, 40 and 50 were arrested by officers from Scotland Yardâ€™s Counter Terrorism Command on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
They are said to be from a variety of nationalities including a number of Algerian origin.
The depot where they worked is less than a mile from Hyde Park where the Pope was due to hold a prayer vigil tomorrow evening.
As street cleaners they would have been able to move relatively freely and inconspicuously through the London crowds.
Once again we have a demonstration of how tolerant the followers of Islam are of other religions.
Did these wannabe assassins hijack Islam?
No, they were trying to implement the words of the Koran. It is time to stop listening to naive people calling for us to accept Islam as just another religion under the label of “Religious Freedom”.
Take note: these were Muslims living and working in London. Did you notice how living in a Western country moderated their behavior? Did you notice how they fit in to British society?
This is why Americans do not want more Muslims, more mosques, in the US – it only allows them to move freely in our crowds until they are ready to attack – and there is no way to know which will attack and which will simply quietly work and supply money and support to the cause.
