Muslim teacher-terrorist arrested plotting a terror attack in London

A 21-year-old teacher arrested by anti-terror police in London plotting to attack a police officer.

Yesterday it emerged that Mohamed Amoudi was investigated for attempting to travel to Syria to join ISIS, and was held by police in 2015.

Amoudi’s activity on social media expressing radical Muslim views had previously been investigated by police.

He was planning to carry out a terror attack in a crowded tourist area.

He is one of seven Muslim terrorists still being questioned by police, including a knifeman arrested in the heart of Westminster, held after separate operations in London.

The swoops on a 27-year-old Muslim terrorist in Whitehall and locations in north London and Kent were executed to contain ‘threats’ and an ‘active’ terror plot, Scotland Yard said.

Born in Yemen, Amoudi studied at Capital City Academy and was an active member of the university’s Islamic society.

Under the name Abu Umar Al-Hadrami, his Twitter feed, which has now been removed, included derogatory references to non-Muslims as ‘kuffar’ (unbelievers).

Two years ago Amoudi was stopped with two teenagers at Istanbul airport after their parents tipped off detectives. But police later released Amoudi – who has been linked to the controversial human rights group Cage – without charge.

Shortly before he travelled to Turkey, Amoudi attended a talk by cleric Haitham al-Haddad, who is known for making homophobic remarks and supporting the death penalty for people who convert away from Islam.

Amoudi was pictured in the front row of the event, organised by the Cage, listening to the cleric as he said: ‘When the leaders of kuffar are happy with your religion, then know that you’ve deviated from the right path.’

Amoudi, who described himself as a teacher on an internet profile, was a regular worshipper at a small mosque on Willesden High Road.

One terrorist, named as Khalid Mohamed Omar Ali, was arrested for offences under the Terrorism Act and possession of offensive weapons close to Downing Street on Thursday afternoon.

Police recovered several knives during the ‘intelligence-led’ swoop, which took place yards from the scene of last month’s deadly attack by Khalid Masood on Westminster Bridge.

Believed to be a British national born overseas who went to school in Tottenham, north London, Ali reportedly joined a terrorists flotilla to Gaza in 2010.

Following his dramatic arrest in front of crowds of tourists, he was taken for questioning at a south London police station where he remains.

A further six people, including a 16-year-old boy-terrorist, are in custody after they were detained in an unconnected operation that saw a team of specialist firearms officers storm an address in Willesden, north London.

They were all arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorist acts and taken to a south London police station for questioning.

 

UK foils active terror plot as female Muslim terrorist is shot in north London raid

A 20-year-old female Muslim terrorist shot by police as they foiled an ‘active terror plot’ was taken away on a stretcher in her blood-soaked burka yelling: ‘Don’t touch my body’.

The terrorist screamed ‘get off – do not touch me’ as they tried to strip off her clothes and treat her wounds after the raid in Willesden, north London, at 7pm last night.

Dramatic video footage shows the moment elite Met officers smashed through the door, ran up to the first floor flat and then threw in CS canisters before ‘at least six’ shots rang out including two that shattered an upstairs window.

Neighbours heard a woman ‘screaming’ inside before the young terrorist lay on the pavement bleeding from her arm and stomach while still wearing her burka.

3FB0119000000578-4453700-image-a-11_1493364968397.jpg

The Muslim female – believed to be the first female terrorist in UK history to be shot by police – was rushed to hospital where she remains in a serious but stable condition and is too unwell to be arrested under the terrorism act.

Five Muslims linked to the flat including a 16-year-old boy and a couple, both 28, have been held over alleged terror offences. A woman, 43, was held in Kent.

Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu said today that the raids meant an ‘active’ terror plot had been foiled – but had nothing to with the arrest of a 27-year-old with a ‘rucksack of knives’ grabbed on Whitehall yesterday.

The six arrested in Willesden and Kent had been under observation by counter terrorism officers as part of an ongoing intelligence led operation. Searches at the address and two others in London are continuing today.

Video posted on Twitter showed police wearing balaclavas at a property on Willesden High Road, just over half a mile from Harlesden Road.

A witness tweeted: ‘#womanindoorway held by anti-terrorism police on Willesden high road #Willesdengreen while detective searches her bags #harlesden #willesden’.

This incident is not connected to the arrest in Whitehall earlier the same day, the Met Police said.

The arrests came just hours after heavily armed officers arrested a Muslim terrorist as he crossed Whitehall, just yards from Downing Street and Parliament.

Armed police ‘swarmed like bees’ on the bearded man just before 2.30pm after his concerned family reportedly alerted security services.

While covert teams trailed him on the ground, a live feed was being sent to control rooms in New Scotland Yard and the MI5’s Thames House before they gave the order for them to swoop in.

A large number of armed police then flooded the area as the terrorist was pinned to the ground just yards from Downing Street. He was held against a wall of the Treasury before being taken away in a van to a police station.

The Muslim terrorist has not been named but is 27 years old and thought to be known to police, who kept tabs on him via surveillance cameras on the streets and on the Underground.

Spanish police arrest 9 Muslim terrorists over terror attacks in Belgium and France

Spanish police have arrested nine Muslim terrorists in connection with recent deadly terror attacks in Belgium and France.

Police said the arrested were one Spaniard and eight Moroccans living in Catalonia, all aged between 30 and 40 years old.

A regional police spokeswoman said at least four of the detained are suspected of being linked to Muslim terrorists arrested following the 2016 Brussels airport and subway attacks that killed 32 people and wounded 300 others.

Regional police spokesman Josep Lluis Trapero told TV3 regional television that four of the detained were clearly members of the ISIS terror group.

He said the arrests could help solve investigations into terror attacks in France and Belgium.

Trapero said the group was also being investigated for drug trafficking and other crimes.

A police statement said police made 12 raids in five Catalan towns including the regional capital, Barcelona. It said the arrests followed an eight-month investigation in coordination with Belgian police.

Spanish police have arrested some 200 jihadis since Spain raised its national security alert to one step below the maximum in 2015.

Muslim Arab terrorist who murdered British student will get $1,025 a month salary from the Palestinian Authority

A Muslim Arab terrorist who murdered a British student in Jerusalem will be paid a salary of more than $1025 a month by the Palestinian Authority government – which receives more than £25 million a year from the UK in foreign aid.

Terrorist Jamil Tamimi, murdered theology student Hannah Bladon in a frenzied knife terror attack on Good Friday after the 21-year-old gave up her seat on a tram to a woman with a baby.

The 57-year-old Muslim terrorist told police that he attacked Hannah, a Birmingham University exchange student attached to Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, in the hope that a soldier in the carriage would kill him.

Instead Tamimi was arrested and is almost certain to be lauded as a ‘hero’ by the Palestinian Authority (PA), like hundreds of other terrorists before him.

An Israeli court has already ruled, following a psychiatric evaluation, that he is fit to stand trial and should be treated as a terrorist by the justice system.

It means Tamimi or his family qualify for a ‘salary’ from the PA, according to Itamar Marcus, the founder and director of the Israeli monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch.

‘According to PA law, everyone who is imprisoned for ‘resisting the occupation’ receives a PA salary,’ he said. ‘In PA practice, 100 per cent of the suicide bombers, stabbers, shooters and car rammers have been included in this category and do receive PA salaries.’

Terrorists who have ‘resisted the occupation’ are paid a monthly amount by the PA and the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) on a sliding scale related to their sentence.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s official spokesman, Ofir Gendelman, tweeted his outrage, saying: ‘Not only didn’t PA president Abbas condemn Hannah Bladon’s murder, but he’ll reward the Palestinian attacker who did it with a monthly salary.’

Influential commentator Avi Mayer, a former spokesman for the Israel Defence Forces, added: ‘If you’re British and you pay taxes, know that your money is going to fund a body that rewards convicted murderers.’

British taxpayers give the PA £25 million a year from foreign aid for health and education.

Last December, the British Department for International Development announced that it would restrict its payments to the PA to health and education with a ‘vetted list’ of public servants. But when British taxpayers’ cash goes to education and health, it frees up money in other budgets controlled by the PA.

ISIS terrorist who shot policeman dead in Paris was released from prison after shooting officers

French security services are today facing troubling questions as to how they failed to prevent an ISIS Muslim terrorist slaughtering one policeman and wounding two other officers when he was already on a terror watch list.

The Champs-Elysees terrorist – identified as Karim Cheurfi – had been detained only last month, it has emerged, after informants said he was ‘seeking to obtain weapons to kill policemen’.

But the 39-year-old, who used the war name ‘Abu Yousuf the Belgian’, had to be released because anti-terror police did not have enough evidence to hold him.

The homegrown terrorist, who officials confirmed was a French national despite his nickname, had also been released early from prison – where it is thought he was radicalized – having been jailed for 20 years in 2005 for trying to kill two policemen.

Cheurfi opened fire five times with a .38 revolver following a car chase in 2001, leaving the officers and a third victim wounded.

3F714F3C00000578-4430542-image-m-5_1492763006694.jpg

He had fled on foot before the driver of the other car and the passenger – a trainee police officer – caught up with him. He fired twice, seriously wounding both men in the chest. All three survived the attack in Roissy-en-Brie, in the Seine-et-Marne department of northern France.

Cheurfi was arrested and placed in custody under a false name. Two days later he seriously injured an officer who was taking him out of his cell, seizing his weapon and firing several times.

Two French officials said this morning that Cheurfi was detained in February for threatening police before being freed, although a warrant for his arrest is dated March 6.

Over the past few months he had reportedly been undergoing psychiatric and terrorist investigations for uttering death threats against law enforcement officials.

 

The ISIS terrorist is believed to have been released in 2016 following the triple assassination attempt, at a time when he was known for drug offences, car theft and robbery.

3F7043D300000578-4430542-image-m-3_1492762934818

It has been claimed Cheurfi was making dark threats on messaging app Telegram before launching his attack on the Champs Elysees in Paris last night.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the atrocity, which was carried out with a Kalashnikov weapon. A female foreign terrorist was also injured when a bullet ricocheted off the police car before Cheurfi was shot dead.

The terror attack unfolded as presidential candidates, including National Front party leader Marine Le Pen, debated on a TV show nearby before Sunday’s election.

French President Francois Hollande said he was convinced it was a terrorist attack, adding that he would hold a security cabinet meeting this morning.

Terror in Paris: Police officer shot dead, 2 others wounded by Kalashnikov-wielding ISIS terrorist

A policeman was shot dead while two others were seriously injured by a Kalashnikov-wielding Muslim terrorist on the Champs Elysees in central Paris tonight – just three days before the French presidential election.

French police said that the attack was probably a ‘terrorist act’ and the world famous avenue was on lockdown by 9pm.

Dramatic video footage captured the moment police shot dead the ISIS terrorist who was known to security services and had been flagged as an ‘extremist’.

Police have launched a desperate manhunt for a second ISIS terrorist after heavily armed officers flooded the area in the heart of the French capital.

Officer are searching the home of the terrorist in east Paris and the Muslim terrorist had previously mentioned on social media that he ‘wanted to kill police’.

The terror attack unfolded as presidential candidates, including National Front party leader Marine Le Pen, debated on a TV show nearby before Sunday’s election.

The Interior Ministry spokesman said the officers were deliberately targeted and the police union added that the policeman was killed while sat in a car at a red light.

In the video, posted on Twitter, several figures can be seen moving around next to a police van on the Champs Elysees.

One of the figures then appeared to fall to the ground and a silver car – believed to have been used by the suspects – can be seen parked next to the van.

Police have now issued an arrest warrant for a second Muslim terrorist – a man understood to have arrived in France by train from Belgium.

Family of British student murdered by Arab terrorist in Jerusalem ‘devastated by the senseless attack’

The family of the British tourist who was murdered by an Arab terrorist in a knife attack in Israel have said they have been devastated by the loss of their ‘talented’ daughter.

Hannah Bladon, 20, was stabbed multiple times in the abdomen with a kitchen knife on the Jerusalem’s light rail close to the Old City.

Her family have described her as a caring woman who was an enthusiastic rugby player and serving member of her church.

In a statement, the Bladons said: ‘Hannah was the most caring, sensitive and compassionate daughter you could ever wish for. She was a talented student and was studying at Birmingham University for a degree in Religion, Theology and Archaeology.

3F42897200000578-4411778-image-m-65_1492204921118

‘At the time of her death she was part of a student exchange programme and was studying at the Rothberg International School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She had been taking part in an archaeological dig that morning.

‘Hannah was a talented musician, part of a serving team at her local church and a member of her local archaeological group. She was an enthusiastic rugby player and a keen Derby County supporter.

‘She was driven and passionate and her death leaves so much promise unfulfilled.

‘Our family are devastated by this senseless and tragic attack.’

Police have arrested the Arab terrorist Jamil Tamimi, 57, from East Jerusalem, after onlookers wrestled him to the ground.

Medics performed CPR on the young woman at the scene before she was taken to hospital in critical condition, where she later died.

In a Facebook post earlier this year she wrote she was ‘OK’ after a wave of terror attacks in the country.

She said: ‘Thanks guys. I’m ok thanks! Security is really tight on campus so no worries at mo (sic)!

‘Managed to see a lot of sites before starting my classes today so defo (sic) having a great time! Xx’.

Mark Regev, Israel’s ambassador to the UK, said: ‘My thoughts are with the family and friends of UK student Hannah Bladon, who was murdered in a senseless act of terror in Jerusalem today.’

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem said: ‘The Hebrew University and the Rothberg International School express our deep sorrow over the murder of a British student, Hannah Bladon, in today’s attack.

‘We extend our deepest condolences to her family and we share in their sorrow.

‘The university condemns such acts of terror that harm innocent people, and especially a student who came to Jerusalem to study and widen her academic horizons.

3F3E4B9100000578-4411778-image-a-54_1492171142266.jpg

‘The university administration and staff will provide all necessary support to students, faculty members and their families in Israel and around the world.

The attack comes during the holiday of Passover, a period during which security forces have ramped up their level of caution and alertness in anticipation of renewed efforts by terrorists to rock the recent period of comparative stability.

3F3E541E00000578-4411778-image-a-58_1492172047404.jpg

Last month, the head of the Shin Bet warned during a Foreign Affairs and Security Committee meeting that “We are now approaching the festival of Passover. There is no doubt that the terror infrastructure, especially Hamas, will try to incite and carry out attacks.”

In an effort to prevent the infiltration of any terrorists seeking to strike during the 7-day Passover holiday, a general closure was imposed on Monday at midnight in Judea and Samaria and is set to continue until midnight this Monday at the conclusion of the festival.

Muslim terrorist in Swedish attack: Uzbeki ISIS supporter

Local police have arrested a Muslim terrorist in Stockholm, and he admitted to carrying out the terror attack that took place yesterday afternoon in the city. During the attack, a terrorist driving a truck ploughed into a crowd on a shopping street and crashed into a department store in central Stockholm, murdering at least four people and injuring an additional 15.

The 39-year-old Muslim father-of-four was arrested in the northern suburb of Marsta after going on the run following the attack, reported Swedish newspaper Aftonblat.

The terrorist, believed to be from Uzbekistan, was wearing a balaclava, with broken glass on his clothes. He reportedly confessed to being involved in the atrocity.

Police suspect he was behind the wheel of the truck, although other security sources reported in Swedish media said the driver is still at large.

He had posted ISIS propaganda on Facebook and liked pictures of casualties after the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon in 2013, Aftonblat reported.

A further arrest was made at 11pm last night in the Stockholm suburb of Hjulsta, according to Swedish newspaper Expressen.

Pictures show the second man, who looked younger, being handcuffed and taken away in a police car. According to Swedish television, the two arrested men are linked.

Photographer Janne Akkeson, who witnessed the arrest in Hjulsta, said: ‘There were about 15 police cars at the scene. There was a specialist terrorist SWAT team and sniffer dogs.’

3F0EA7F900000578-4390436-image-a-50_1491613707707

During the attack, which happened around 3pm local time, a Muslim driving a hijacked 30-tonne truck ploughed down pedestrians before crashing into a shopping centre and bursting into flames.

One witness said a pram was hurled into the air and desperate pedestrians ran for their lives as the truck crushed everything in its path. 

Three men jumped out from inside the truck and opened fire before trying to stab pedestrians, witnesses said.

Two men were tackled to the ground and arrested. Police questioned them but said they were not suspected of any crime.

Police released CCTV of the terrorist who ran away, who was wearing a green jacket, white shoes and a grey hoodie.

Officers said the first terrorist arrested on Friday evening in Marsta resembled the man in the appeal photos.

dsfercvb.jpg

Hundreds of shoppers had to flee for their lives after the articulated truck rammed into the corner of the Ahlens department store.

Horrifying images of the aftermath showed blood smeared on the roads and bodies covered by blankets.

Following the truck crash, armed terrorists were seen running into Stockholm’s Central railway station and opening fire. Two people were also said to have been stabbed.

Spendrups Brewery said the truck belonged to its company and was stolen.

The vehicle’s original driver, who has not been named, was hurt in the hijacking after trying to cling to the vehicle.

He had climbed out of the cab while delivering its cargo of beer. At least one man, wearing a balaclava, took the chance to climb in and drove off, knocking the victim over as he tried to get back on board. He was injured, but not seriously.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has laid a bouquet of red roses and lit a candle outside the Ahlens store.

3F0D908100000578-4390436-image-a-16_1491597683634.jpg

Witnesses described how severed limbs and bodies were left littered across the blood-splattered Drottninggatan in a scene reminiscent of a ‘warzone’.

Many told how they had been browsing in busy stores when the truck came hurtling towards them.

One told of bodies and blood ‘everywhere’ and even a dead dog with its owner screaming beside it.

Sweden: Muslim terrorist rams stolen truck into crowds – At least 5 murdered

Up to five people are believed to have been murdered in a terrorist attack when a Muslim terrorist driving a stolen truck rammed into shoppers in Stockholm today.

Police said the vehicle crashed into a group of people on the street outside a shopping center after racing down six streets.

Three gunmen were reported to have jumped out of the truck and opened fire.

Hundreds of shoppers were seen fleeing for their lives after the articulated truck rammed into the corner of the building. Dozens were believed to have been injured.

Shots were heard and the Muslim driver, who was said by witnesses to be wearing a balaclava, is thought to have been arrested. There were also reports of shots at a second incident.

The truck is understood to have been stolen or hijacked from a Spendrups brewery. Extinguisher was seen being sprayed on to the vehicle.

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said everything pointed to the incident being a terror attack and confirmed one person has been arrested.

Armed police were scrambled to the scene and were seen marching into the store.

A Swedish radio reporter said she had seen at least five dead bodies, Aftonbladet reported.

Swedish police confirmed three have been killed and eight injured.

Police spokeswoman Towe Hagg said: ‘A vehicle has injured people on Drottningatan.’

Witnesses described seeing a ‘lone man’ put a balaclava over his face before he drove the truck into crowds of people.

Just moments after the terror attack, armed police wearing gas masks quickly rushed to the scene and shut off the busy road in the centre of the capital.
