"Taifi is among those arrested today," an intelligence official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. The nationalities of the other militants arrested are being established. One intelligence official told Reuters that it is believed Taifi was the "mastermind" of the July 7, 2005 bombings that rocked the London transportation system when homicide bombers set off explosions...

    One speaker at the meeting, held on the anniversary of the attacks in America, told the assembled crowd that the West should "listen to the warnings." The most incendiary speech was delivered by Saiful Islam, from Luton, Bedfordshire, who praised Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda for their "courage" in retaliating against the "dictatorship and oppression" of the West. He said: "The blame of 9/11 belongs to no one but the American government. They are the terrorists. [...] Mr Islam warned that unless British and American troops were withdrawn from "Muslim lands" they would be to blame for the consequences, saying...

    ISLAMABAD/PESHAWAR, Aug 11: A British national, Rashid Rauf, who was arrested by an intelligence agency provided a lead to thwart the plot to blow up trans-Atlantic flights, sources said. The sources said Rashid Rauf was father of Tayyab Rauf, a suspect who was arrested in United Kingdom last year in connection with 7/7 London train blasts. During interrogation, the suspect unveiled the terrorism plot aiming to destroy at least ten passenger aircraft in the UK, the sources said. They said the information was shared with the UK Home Land Security department that resulted in a raid in which 21 suspects...

    ALL four July 7 suicide bombers were tracked by security services a year before they attacked London. But the surveillance operation was ditched after intelligence officers decided there was nothing suspicious about their behaviour, sources said last night. The revelation comes as Tony Blair's plans to create a law against glorifying terrorism were torn apart by rebel MPs.

    The plot for the July 7 transit bombings in London, which killed 56 people, may have been much larger than previously known, ABC News has learned. Sources familiar with the investigation tell ABC News an additional 12 bombs and four improvised detonators were found in the trunk of a car believed to be rented by suicide bomber Shehzad Tanweer. Police believe the bombers drove the car to Luton, where they boarded trains to London. "I believe that the explosives left in that car were left there for a second strike," said Bob Ayers, a London-based terrorism consultant with expertise in...

    Score one for the good guys of the blogosphere! The Guardian, the once-prestigious left wing U.K. newspaper, has been forced to fire an intern, Dilpazier Aslam, who was a member of an extremist Islamist political party and who had not declared this when he wrote a comment after the 7/7 attacks. This is the first time a British "journalist" has been forced to step down after being criticized by bloggers. The group in question, Hizb ut- Tahrir, promotes racism, anti-Semitism, calls suicide bombers "martyrs" and urges Muslims to kill Jewish people. The intern wrote an opinion piece for the Guardian...

    The London Bombings: How the U.S. and the U.K. Should Respond by Nile Gardiner, Ph.D., and James Phillips July 21, 2005 (link to PDF) Thursday, July 7, 2005, will go down as one of the darkest days in British history since the Second World War. At least 55 people were killed in a series of bomb blasts in the heart of London, and several hundred were injured. The July 7 attacks were followed by a series of near simultaneous minor bomb blasts on public transportation in the British capital, involving detonators, on July 21. Although there were no fatalities, the...

    Terrorism links find Pakistan again in eye of stormBy Imtiaz Gul Jul 17, 2005, 15:03 GMT Islamabad - Despite ebullient U.S praise for its anti-terror efforts since becoming a key member of the international coalition against terrorism, Pakistan still finds itself in the eye of the storm for its past links with radical militant groups in the region. This time, the south Asian nation is under renewed focus after British officials investigating the July 7 London bombings revealed one of the suicide bombers, Shehzad Tanweer, had stayed at a religious seminary in Lahore this year. The seminary, known as Markaz-e-Tayyaba,...

    Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair said Muslims could do more to help find those plotting further atrocities. "We have a moment now in which we can engage with the Muslim community and move them from what could be described as a bit of denial into active engagement around counterterrorism," Mr. Blair told BBC TV. "Who are the preachers of hate? Who are the people who are looking to groom bombers?" Mr. Blair asked, adding that a number of British Muslims had been to Iraq and training camps abroad. "The Muslim community somewhere will know who these people are. We've now...

    When our British counterparts did broach the subject in private conversations, you'd hear things such as "Well, that's your problem" or — with the memories of terrorist attacks by the Irish Republican Army in the 1970s and '80s still fresh in their minds — "Well, now you understand." You could even get into an argument over whether Tony Blair and the British government had been right to send British troops to fight in the U.S.-led war to root out terrorists in Afghanistan. The message was clear — that the Americans had somehow brought the Sept. 11 attacks upon themselves by...

    From The suicide bomb squad from Leeds A relative of one of the bombers was arrested and taken to London for questioning. Intelligence agencies say that at least two of the men had recently returned from Pakistan. All four were British, but with origins in Pakistan. MI6, MI5 and British diplomats were in touch with the Pakistani authorities last night to try to track down any connections with terrorists there. Security sources confirmed that none of the bombers was on any MI5 file, although one had links to a person investigated by police. From Profile: the Leeds bombers [Shehzad] Tanweer's...

    Four pathetic young bombersAlice MilesIt is difficult for Londoners to return to normal life when the events of July 7 have been so glamorised NOW THE real shock. The first suicide bombing to occur in Western Europe — and not one, but four of them. This takes terror in Britain into a new dimension. And yet, my instinct is the same as it was before learning that these were not just “ordinary” bombers, but suicides. And the instinct is even stronger now: do not glamorise them. I see four pathetic young men, feeble manifestations of confused masculinity, too spineless to...

    There are two ways to look at the bombings in London -- just as there are two ways to look at the misdeeds at Abu Gharaib last year and the interrogation practices of our soldiers at Guantanamo Bay. To the Democrats, who seek America’s defeat in the war against Islamic fascist terror, these things are to be seen as tools to be used to bludgeon America and Americans into submission. To me they are only further proof of how great America is and how obvious it is that we are winning the war against the evil murderers. When I see...

    Several years ago I asked Dennis Miller if 9/11 had been an epiphany for him. He said, "Sure! I'm just amazed it wasn't an epiphany for EVERYone…" In the wake of the recent London bombings I asked ABC's Aaron Ketersky if it had been an epiphany for Brits. I was shocked to hear, "Not necessarily." According to Ketersky, the folks he talked to in London felt it was "their turn…it was something inevitable…in fact they were preparing for it." How appallingly 'civilized'. Historically, England has treated Ireland and Scotland worse than they have their growing Muslim immigrants population and allies....
