London-Based “Islamist Hate Preacher” Abu Hamza Was an Agent of British Intelligence Service MI5

(globalresearch) Evidence produced in a New York courtroom by a London-based ‘Islamist hate preacher’ last week is yet more grist to the mill that the notorious Abu Hamza was indeed an agent of Britain’s counterintelligence service, MI5.

Convenient too for the British establishment that the trial was ‘outsourced,’ taking place three thousand miles across the Atlantic where MI5’s culpability will not be under scrutiny.

As Hamza’s lawyer, Joshua Dratel, waved the Scotland Yard documents proving the cleric was an MI5 “intermediary,” he was reminding the court of MI5 ‘grooming’ of Hamza going back to 1997, well before the 9/11 attacks or the so-called War On Terror. By 2000 London’s Finsbury Park Mosque trustee, Mufti Abdul Barkatulla, was pleading with Scotland Yard to curb the cleric’s activities as London’s cheerleader for Osama Bin Laden, but MI5 demurred; they saw the Islamist as a useful ‘intelligence honeypot’ to watch.

To Her Majesty’s Secret Service he was the opportunity they had been waiting for. Instead of reining Hamza in, MI5 sent agent Reda Hassaine and others in to secretly join Hamza’s group of Al-Muhajiroun ‘angry young men.’ They looked on for years as Hamza’s distorted version of Islam gathered scores of impressionable recruits, making regular trips to terrorist training camps in Afghanistan.

The question of whether this constitutes MI5 knowingly aiding and abetting terrorism under the Terrorism Act, or merely criminal negligence is yet to be tested in the British courts. Whether or not these latest claims are successful in New York, it is quite clear that with a light dusting of chalk powder the fingerprints of Britain’s intelligence agencies, the Security Service (MI5) and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) are likely to be found at the scenes of all the post 9/11 terror attacks in the UK.

Although it has for much of the population, the penny doesn’t seem to have dropped yet for the London press that, much like the Jews were tried and convicted by Nazi propaganda back in the 1930s, the Islamic community may be being fitted up in a TV news script written by these unaccountable rogue intelligence agencies. No spooks haunting our places of worship is nothing new.

Nazis in cassocks

Elements within the Vatican pulled out all the stops in the desperate spring of 1945 with Hitler’s SS, running Jesuit ‘Ratlines’ to help thousands of senior Nazis to escape justice. This accusation was treated as a conspiracy theory immediately after the war, but is becoming better understood as intelligence papers are declassified and protagonists who always planned to get off ‘Scot free’ go to their grave.

Ladislas Farago’s ‘Aftermath’ (1974), Paul Manning’s ‘Martin Bormann Nazi In Exile‘ (1981) and Tom Bower’s ‘The Paperclip Conspiracy’ (1981) all document the horrifying success of the transportation and transition of a sizeable army of Nazi war criminals into anti-Soviet America: From the mess room to the board room, from the jackbooted to the suited.
With the Ratlines’ success, the US Office for Strategic Services (OSS) and post-war Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) appear to have picked up this penchant for an ‘intelligence priesthood.’ One decisive factor may have been America’s first CIA chief Allen Dulles’ law firm, Sullivan & Cromwell, that laundered much of the Nazis’ looted wealth of Europe brought to New York from burrows squirreled away in Argentina and elsewhere.

Many believe it was the Dulles CIA regime’s first experiment in religion since the war, when a captivating fellow, the ‘reverend’ Jim Jones, founded his People’s Temple church in 1955 in Los Angeles. Sporting his characteristic ‘shades’, the pastor courted the press and controversy, growing his network of mainly Californian mission halls to a congregation of around five thousand and buying a plot of land known as ‘Jonestown’ in Guyana, South America.

It was there that the cult hit world headlines on Saturday November 18, 1978 with horrific events triggered by the visit of a politician already well-known for his outspoken criticism of the CIA, Democratic Congressman for California, Leo Ryan. As Ryan was leaving with several members of the cult who wished to return to the US, Jones’ guards opened fire, killing the congressman, three journalists and one member of the fleeing congregation. Later that day, nearly one thousand Jim Jones followers were found dead at ‘Jonestown’ having been tricked into or persuaded to drink poison.

The most detailed and shocking accounts of life in the ‘People’s Temple’ of Jim Jones is Jeannie Mills’ 1979 book ‘Six Years With God’. She, husband Al, and her four children became caught up in the cult but she left and began to work against it, even setting up a home for former cult members. But within a year of the Jonestown massacre, shortly after the book was published, Jeannie, Al and daughter Daphene were horrifically executed in their San Francisco home.

It has since been shown by author Peter Levenda and others that Reverend Jim Jones was secretly meeting with CIA figures: South American torture training staffer, Dan Mitrione, to name but one. Mitrione was himself kidnapped and killed in 1970 for his part in the CIA’s South American torture program by Tupamaros guerrillas in Uruguay.

Lee Rigby’s killer was sprung from a Kenyan jail by MI5

On Wednesday 22nd May 2013, Royal Fusiliers’ drummer Lee Rigby was hacked to death on the streets of South London. It later transpired that MI5 had travelled to Kenya back in November 2010 to release one of his murderers from jail, Islam convert Michael Adebolajo, hoping to recruit him. MI5 had told them not to worry and that Adebolajo was ‘no danger.’

Intelligence services use several methods to persuade or bully individuals to work for them. The more poverty and destitution in a country, the lass basic human rights like food and shelter are guaranteed the easier it becomes for the spooks to recruit. According to former MI5 officer Annie Machon, MI5 use the mnemonic ‘MICE’ to describe their main recruitment methods: Money, Ideology, Compromise, which is a polite word for blackmail, and Ego.

Kenya anti-terror boss, Elijah Rop, told London’s Daily Mirror in December 2013, “The British must answer many questions. We told them this man [Adebolajo] was a danger. We warned them.”

MI5 and Scotland Yard’s anti-terror police initially tried to cover-up the fact that Adebolajo’s was brought to Britain by MI5 by arresting one of his boyhood friends who was talking to journalists. Unfortunately for them, Abu Nusaybah beat them to the BBC Newsnight studios and was only arrested after the horse had bolted, and he had finished his national TV interview.

Kenya’s Elijah Rop is right. Senior MI5 officers, who gave the order for Drummer Rigby’s killer to be sprung from jail and brought to Britain, have some very serious questions to answer. Unfortunately for the murdered Fusilier’s friends and family, the present Intelligence and Security Committee chairman, former Tory Defense Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind, is too chummy with MI5 and the defense industry which pays him, to do any rigorous investigating.

The strange case of 7/7 ‘Mastermind’ Haroon Aswat

Back in 2003 at Finsbury Park Mosque, Abu Hamza and his sidekick Haroon Aswat were like Tweedledum and Tweedledee, always seen together, holding the same ideology: Hamza was the voice and Aswat was the fixer as the Mosque council begged the police to intervene… but was MI5 watching them, or running them?

Haroon Aswat was alleged to have been in touch with all four of the alleged 7/7 bombers, Mohammad Sidique Khan, Shehzad Tanweer, Germaine Lindsay and Hasib Hussain in the days before the 2005 London bombings, but was out of the country by the time the bombs went off; he had hopped on a plane to India early that early that morning.

Aswat was arrested a few days later in Pakistan, then inexplicably released and made his way to Zambia where he was jailed and finally extradited, ending up in custody in Britain and to this day remains confined indefinitely in a psychiatric hospital.

Former FBI Special Prosecutor John Loftus alleged on TV in late July 2005 that he believed Aswat was an MI6 ‘double agent’. Though the activities around their Al-Muhajiroun group were to frame Britain’s entire domestic policy in the so-called War On Terror, Abu Hamza’s fixer, Haroon Aswat, has almost disappeared from history.

The spook priests’ disguise is wearing thin

The pressure MI5 and their media associates can bring to bear when it comes to controlling the media narrative of terror attacks like 7/7 is mind-boggling. This extends well beyond issuing denials on the day of an attack against stories that don’t ‘fit the script’, hatchet job ‘Conspiracy Files’ documentaries, or ordering the arrest of individuals who are about to implicate them on live TV.

When, in 2006, author of ‘The London Bombings, an Independent Enquiry’, Nafeez Ahmed, was negotiating with his publisher the deal began to stall because of his use of the term ‘alleged bombers.’Ahmed was mindful that the men may have been patsies rather than masterminding the attack themselves. The publisher insisted the term ‘alleged’ be removed throughout the text, strange when you think how the removal of that one word might prejudice subsequent inquests or public enquiries.

Approaches from the spooks come in many forms, usually deniable. Though they will try to lie their way out that can be made more difficult. Switched on activists may even find it possible to whip out their mobile phone and film the officer trying to recruit them before they slip away. As ‘Emma’ did this January in the run up to this September’s NATO summit in Newport, South Wales.

So if you are approached by a dodgy spook or cleric, consider carefully whether you have the confidence to go to the press but meanwhile draw up a short sharp statement of fact, an affidavit, and, if appropriate take it straight to your local civil police.

Just like the Nazi Jesuits of Operation Paperclip, MI5 and the CIA mullah’s days are numbered because we the people are wising up. Religious posts enjoying the highest levels of public trust have been the haunt of pedophiles for too many years, but honest rabbis, vicars, priests and mullahs are realizing how important it is to flush out all the fakers, even the government approved ones, from our places of worship.

Havana Syndrome again? CIA officers are mowed down by a mysterious disease

A CIA officer in Moscow experienced symptoms of the so-called “Havana syndrome” in 2017. This became known to The New York Times with reference to sources in diplomatic circles.

CIA officer Mark Polimepulos, who helped lead covert operations in Russia and Europe, complained about the manifestation of mysterious symptoms. According to the newspaper, in December 2017, he felt severe dizziness, which later developed into a prolonged migraine, forcing him to retire. At that time, Polymerpoulos was 48 years old.

It is noted that such a case was not the only one. Similar symptoms were experienced by the staff of the American ambassadors in Cuba and China in 2016-2018. However, the exact number of cases and the place where this happened is not named. It is alleged that the US diplomats have tried to influence in a similar way around the world.

At the same time, the US State Department was unable to establish an unambiguous reason that caused the “Havana syndrome.” Among other things, it was assumed that the diplomats may have been exposed to an unidentified sound effect.

In 2017, it was reported that, beginning in late 2016, American diplomatic officials and their relatives in Cuba began to complain of symptoms such as hearing loss, nausea, headaches and balance disorder. 

The Associated Press received audio footage of the attack and described the harassing sounds as “the high-pitched sound of crickets combined with fingernails scratching on a board.” Then the American government suggested that Russia or China could be the culprit.

Many victims are still undergoing rehabilitation. Specialists from the University of Pennsylvania performed magnetic resonance imaging and revealed visible changes in the structure of the brain in the diplomatic missions.

Differences were found in 23 men and 17 women who complained of health problems while on diplomatic duties in Havana. Scientists have yet to figure out what causes the unusual symptoms.

How Russia and the United States nearly started a nuclear war in 1995

The Norwegian meteorological rocket incident remains the only time in history that the Russian president has activated his nuclear briefcase.

On January 25, 1995, Doomsday could have come in the world: the Russian Federation was preparing to launch a nuclear strike on the United States. How did it come about that the states that left the confrontation of the Cold War in the past and had just normalized relations with each other found themselves on the verge of mutual destruction?

The beginning of the war?

The cause of the crisis was an ordinary Norwegian meteorological rocket. Its launch from the small island of Anneia at 7 am local time (10 am Moscow time) towards Spitsbergen caused a stir in Russia.

Equipped with scientific equipment to study the aurora borealis, the Black Brant XII was similar in size to the nuclear-powered American Trident D-5 ballistic missile, intended for launch from submarines. In addition, it flew along a trajectory along which, as the Russian Defense Ministry believed, American missiles would fly in the event of a nuclear war. 

In December 1994, Norway informed 28 states, including Russia, about the planned launch, but did not give a specific date, limiting itself to specifying the period: from January 15 to February 10 of the next year. Due to bureaucratic delays, this information did not reach the Russian Missile Warning System, which sounded the alarm.

Decisive minutes

An emergency meeting with the country’s top political and military leadership was convened in the Kremlin. Defense Minister Pavel Grachev, Chief of the General Staff Mikhail Kolesnikov and President of the Russian Federation (as Supreme Commander-in-Chief) Boris Yeltsin had three strategic missile forces control terminals activated – the so-called nuclear suitcases.

The military believed the lone missile could have been fired to create an electromagnetic pulse that knocked out Russian radars and communications systems. Following it, a massive blow could be expected.

For several tense minutes, as leaders watched it flight, it was decided whether Russia would launch a nuclear strike against the United States. 

“Little is known today about what Yeltsin said at the time, given that it could have been some of the most dangerous moments in the entire history of the nuclear era,” The Washington Post journalist, David Hoffman wrote three years after the incident : “They make it clear that the Cold War nuclear readiness system continues to operate, and how catastrophic its consequences could be, despite the fact that the feud between the great powers is already over.”   

The situation was discharged only when it became clear that the rocket had gone towards Spitsbergen (not far from which it fell into the ocean). The nuclear cases have been deactivated. Russian President Boris Yeltsin (center) and Russian Defense Minister Pavel Grachev (right).

The incident with bringing Russia’s Strategic Nuclear Forces to combat readiness, soon became the property of the world community. When, four years later, the Norwegians were about to repeat their launch of Black Brant XII and reported this to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the US additionally warned all key Russian military departments about it through their channels. As a result, this time there were no unpleasant surprises.

Germany conducted exercises in case of nuclear war

Bundeswehr / Birthe Brechters

The Bundeswehr with partners in the North Atlantic Alliance ( NATO) trained in operations in a nuclear war.

The German army, together with Italian, Belgian and Dutch colleagues, conducted exercises in the event of a conflict with the use of nuclear weapons.

The location of the exercise “Steadfest Noon” was chosen airbase “Nörfenich”, where the tactical squadron of the Luftwaffe 31 “Boelcke” is located. Together with the Luftwaffe of the Bundeswehr, the air forces of other NATO countries, in particular, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium, took part in the exercises.

According to a report by Bild, the exercise scenario involved training procedures for safely removing nuclear weapons from storage, delivering ammunition and installing them on aircraft. The training flights took place without nuclear weapons, and in parallel with the aviation exercises at the Büchel airbase, where the tactical squadron of the Luftwaffe 51 Immelman is located, the Resilient Guard air defense systems were trained to protect the airfield from air attacks.

The training sites for the Luftwaffe of the Bundeswehr were not chosen by chance, since the Nörfenich airbase is a reserve storage site for the B61, a hydrogen bomb that forms the basis of nuclear weapons of the US strategic nuclear forces. 

Some of this ammunition is stationed at NATO bases in Europe. The exact number of hydrogen bombs that are stored at European sites and which ones are not reported. In Europe, the B61 is carried by Panavia Tornado fighter-bombers (pictured) and General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon fighters.

Recall that the B61 thermonuclear bomb is the main weapon of the US strategic nuclear forces, although it entered service in 1968. Since 2012, a new guided version of the B61-12 has been under development, which will replace all B61 and B83 bombs that have been in service since 1983. It can be used both on strategic bombers and tactical aircraft. About two billion dollars were spent on the development of the 12th modification of the aerial bomb.
