The importance of stopping terrorism funding is again seen: it’s not only that there are people who actually get paid for their “terrorist services”, but that there are people who are actually profiting of the terrorism’s activities. Not only politically, as normally people will consider their “influence” so their actual behaviour will change, but also financially, thanks to the economic movements that are caused by terrorist activities (i.e. assurance firms after an attack normally have to pay large sums of money, so their shares will have lower value or business made under threat of terrorist activity will be different than those made in a normal situation). So with all of you the Taliban’s say that a) they are ready to attack UK and b) that they will do it with the money sent by their “Muslim brothers”, from Metro.co.uk:
“In an interview due to be broadcast on Thursday, an Afghan commander of the terror group said recruits here were awaiting orders to carry out a strike on British soil.
He also said Britain is the Taliban’s biggest source of funding.
In an interview with Sky News at a secret location, the terror leader said: ‘We send a message to all foreign nations that we will attack them at any time. It could be in the next two weeks or it could be today, tomorrow or the day after.
‘We will attack Britain as well. We have trustworthy people who will listen to us and are waiting for our orders.’
The current threat level from international terrorism in Britain is ‘severe’, meaning a terrorist attack is ‘highly likely’, according to the Home Office. The Taliban commander said the group received most of its funds from Britain, from individual donations in mosques and community centres.
He said the money goes through Pakistan and is allocated to Taliban groups hiding in mountains along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border.
He added: ‘We get donations from our Muslim brothers in Britain for Jihad. This is how we get our money and buy our weapons and carry on fighting.’”
We hope that this time MI5 will not tell them that they are doing right, as it just their freedom of expression or “hey those are just idiots“, as happened with Abu Hamza, that hooked hateful cleric who is now sobbing about losing British nationality.
