BE AFRAID: Islamic State planning mass attack on Britain, warns head of MI5

Andrew Parker.

This is more likely to be scaremongering to keep us all in our place, rather than MI5 saying it wants more powers, as some critics have claimed.

This Blog has argued before that the major powers seem more concerned – not about keep us safe, but about keeping us down.

You are strongly encouraged to read the article and draw your own conclusions.

Islamic State terrorists are planning mass casualty attacks in Britain the head of MI5 has warned.

Andrew Parker, director general of the security agency, said threats from homegrown jihadis who want to fight for the militant movement showed no sign of abating.

He also publicly admitted for the first time that MI5 had to carry out computer hacking attacks against terror networks to crack their communications.

Delivering the Lord Mayor of London’s annual defence and security lecture, he said the current level of threat was the highest he had seen in a career spanning 32-years. In the past 12 months his agency has thwarted six terror plots in the UK and another seven abroad.

Defending the agency’s ability to access communications data, he said: “We use these tools within a framework of strict safeguards and rigorous oversight, but without them we would not be able to keep the country safe.

“As I have said before, we do not, and could not, go browsing at will through the lives of innocent people.”

    Bombs away!! All part of the psy-ops build up, conditioning the sheep to accept an unlawful attack in Syria.

    Lets hope they do not go the worldly way of false flagging incidents or making it up as they go along, Blair style, to meet their long term goals..

    When is the next Ebola outbreak?

    The only mass attack on this country is…
    President Cameron and vice President Osborne.
    Prime Minister is soooo yesterday.

    It might be genuine but only because the UK stirred up the Middle East in the first place. Before 2003 there was little or no Islamic terrorism in the UK.

      Hi Thomas, yes, and the UK has been stirring up the ME for a very long time, when we ‘formed’ Iraq (to stop the Kurdish people owning their own oil & threaten UK power in the Middle East), there was a record of this ignoble achievements: “The outstanding event at this time was, of course, the Cairo Conference of March 1921 at which British army officers and officials headed by the Colonial Secretary, Mr Winston Churchill, decided to convert the region into a Hashemite Kingdom of Iraq led by Amir Faisal bin Hussein whom the French had recently evicted from Syria. Faisal´s debt to Britain for an Iraqi throne would, it was assumed, ensure respect for British interests in the area. These could be further promoted by using British bomber aircraft for policing….” Ref: Cambridge University Press, Records of Iraq, Cambridge archive editions

      Now that the Russian advance on ISIS has been joined by Jordan and Iraq, the ISIS bogeyman will require some scary PR from Washington’s marketing wing… have to keep stirring up fear and mayhem in a war economy and justify jobs for the boys in the doughnut!

        Michelle: Don’t forget the infamous Balfour Declaration of 1917 where, without any consultation, Britain gave away someone else’s country to a group of fanatical Zionists. The repercussions are still being felt all round the Middle East and beyond.

    First of all I am sceptical about these claims, after all MI5 can say want it wants and doesn’t have to produce evidence. Secondly, if the claims are true then we should stop invading/occupying/interfering in the Middle East. Our po9liticians still can’t come to terms with the fact that the British Empire is over.

  6. no bull

    Of course isis are going to attack us thats why they were allowed into europe inthe first place. Then the nwo can really justify identity chips and remove cash from society.

  7. Nona

    Well, hey…..DAAAH! Got news for ya, guys:

    We’re ALREADY under attack!

    How come you, guys didn’t find this out before? All of a sudden, you’re being friendly to us, and trying to help us? Since when? We know that you hate us, THE People, and work against us, every chance you get!
