“Metropolitan police entered BBC studios and arrested Mr Nusaybah….His arrest was not directly linked to his 28-year-old friend Adebolajo’s alleged murder of soldier Lee Rigby.”
[Is there anybody in all of Britain who believes this denial? If it had truly been unrelated to the testimony that he was in the process of giving in the BBC interview, then why was the session disrupted by the police, just as he was testifying to the involvement of British secret services in the pre-attack life of Mr. Adebolajo? The BBC was inadvertantly stepping on MI5/6 toes, probably causing news bosses to freak-out over what their minions were up to, forcing them to request the emergency shut-down of the dangerous interview by intelligence officials.
England is about to burn, and all of Europe with it, but probably for the exact wrong reasons. Continent-wide civil war will not help the struggle of the common man, but will merely strengthen the hand of the State (SEE: Camp of the Saints).]

A FRIEND of one of the Woolwich fanatics has been arrested by counter terrorism police moments after he told BBC that M15 attempted to recruit his friend to work for them.
The alleged Woolwich attackers, identified as Michael Adebolajo and Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale, are currently both being held by heavily armed police in separate hospitals where they have been recovering from gunshot wounds.
The pair was shot by police on Wednesday after they allegedly hacked to death 25-year-old Lee Rigby and then, armed with knives and a hand gun, charged at police.
In other developments:
- Drummer Lee Rigby’s family have given a heart-wrenching press conference paying tribute to the slain soldier.
- A former girlfriend of Michael Adebolajo says he was just a ‘normal bloke’.
- Britain is bracing for clashes with right-wing extremists and possible copycat terror attacks and has added some 1200 police to potential trouble spots.
- A British newspaper publishes shocking video of the moment the two men accused of killing Drummer Rigby were shot by police following the barbaric attack.
- Gemini Donnelly-Martin and her mother Amanda Donnelly called the ‘Angels of Woolwich’ after it was revealed that they sat with Drummer Rigby in his final moments, comforted him and prayed for him.
- Metropolitan Police said they had made two further arrests – a man and woman, both aged 29 – on suspicion of conspiracy to murder in relation to the Woolwich killing.
- Links are revealed between accused killer Michael Adebolajo and radical Islamic cleric Anjem Choudary, who is accused of having “blood on his hands”.
Abu Nusaybah gave an interview to the BBC at their premises in central London about his childhood friend murder suspect Michael Adebolajo .He said Adebolajo had undergone a “change” after he was detained by security forces in Kenya last year and underwent physical and sexual abused during interrogation.
He said when he returned to the UK M15 asked if he would work for them as an informer. They allegedly harassed him for some months.
“His wording was, “They are bugging me – they won’t leave me alone”,” Mr Nusaybah said.
“He mentioned initially they wanted to ask him if he knew certain individuals. But after him saying that he didn’t know these individuals, what he said was they asked him if he would be interested in working for them. He was explicit in that he refused to work for them, but he did confirm he didn’t know the individuals.”
Then in a twist, Metropolitan police entered BBC studios and arrested Mr Nusaybah in relation to terrorism offences. They also raided his home and another in East London. Police have confirmed the 31-year-old was being held on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism at a south London police station.
His arrest was not directly linked to his 28-year-old friend Adebolajo’s alleged murder of soldier Lee Rigby.
The British Government has yet to comment on the claims made by Mr Nusaybah about Adebolajo or on his own arrest.
It is understood Mr Nusaybah had once been linked to an extremist Islamic group in Britain led by self styled “sheik of east London” and hate preacher Anjew Choudary although claims he moved away from the group sometime ago.
Claims Adebolajo was tortured by Kenyan authorities last year after refusing to speak with them could also not be verified. Mr Nusaybah said however his friends’ experiences in Kenya and alleged “harassment” by M15 changed his personality, made him withdrawn and less talkative.
“His mind was somewhere else but his presence was there,” he said, adding that tears welled in his friend’s eyes when he spoke about Kenya although he was not exactly sure what happened.
“He said ‘ I feel shy to describe what that did to me’,” Mr Nusaybah said of his friends experiences which he suggested was sexual abuse.
He said Adebolajo had wished to live in a Muslim country with Sharia law and had visited Kenya for this reason.
It has been previously claimed the Adebolajo may have been attempting to make his way to Somalia to join a terrorist group to make jihad.
Attack pair set to be grilled
THE two men accused of a frenzied murder of a soldier in south east London are expected to be interviewed this weekend.
Police shot the pair. Despite their injuries they have been deemed fit to be interviewed.
Investigators from the counter terrorist police unit are particularly keen to establish whether they acted alone or whether the attack was part of a broader orchestrated campaign involving others.
It has been established at least one belonging to an extremist Islamic group and influenced by a banned imam who has since been booted out of the UK.
Two women arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder Drummer Rigby have now been released without charge.
A 29-year-old was arrested yesterday in connection with the killing while a 31 year-old, had been held by police at a home in south London last night and later released.
Detectives are still questioning a 29-year-old man also on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
Fears of more lone wolf style attacks
Meanwhile, Britain potentially faces more “individualist jihad” style killings similar to the attack Drummer Rigby as anti-Muslim sentiments are stirred to dangerous levels.
That’s the view of a number of terrorism experts in Britain as they fear certain radical magazines and social media can remotely spark extremist converts into attacks.
Reading University international terrorism and al Qaeda expert Dr Christina Hellmich said while al Qaeda’s capabilities are largely destroyed individual terrorism could flourish.
“The fear right now is that we have a wave of individual terror ahead of us,” she said.
“The term al-Qaeda always comes up as if it is al-Qaeda that is propagating these attacks. But that gives us the illusion that there is still some monolithic group behind this pulling the strings. This is not the case. We are dealing with individualist jihadist everywhere but they are the fragment of the organisation.”
The concepts of individual attacks are being promoted by radical Islamists, including through the Inspire magazine produced by al-Qaeda, largely blamed for promoting the attack on the Boston Marathon earlier this month.
“Inspire has been trying to propagate the individual jihad as a strategy since 2010 in their magazine but it hasn’t really paid off. If these are the only attacks then it’s not very much.”
Jeffrey DeMarco, lecturer and researcher in criminology at Kingston University, agrees the attack demonstrates an increase in “lone wolf” terrorism which could pose a risk for security services to manage.
“We have been seeing slowly but really most noticeably with Mumbai in 2008, this escalation and this frequent recurrence of the lone wolves who aren’t part of the intricate terrorist cells or organisations,” he said.
According to DeMarco the purpose is to invoke widespread fear. “Mass casualties are not necessarily the endgame, the epidemic of fear can be just as damaging.”
Matthew Henman, senior analyst at IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre (JTIC), said: “The fact that the attackers made no attempt to flee the scene, combined with their interaction with bystanders, may indicate an effort to maximise publicity of the attack and to ensure that their message was recorded and publicised.”
