Once again, the corporate media rolls out a scary story about Islamists threatening the state, this time represented by the British royal family.
“Police are concerned about two extreme groups which are planning protests during the Royal Wedding,” Sky News reports today.
Sky News reports that Muslims Against the Crusades has decided to protest outside of Westminster Abbey where the Archbishop of Canterbury will marry Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton on Friday. The group was told it would not be allowed to protest there.
Muslims Against Crusades wants a general Muslim uprising on Friday and has reportedly told Princes William and Harry to “watch your backs,” apparently a thinly veiled threat.
The royal wedding will be guarded by a massive security operation, including around 5,000 police officers and hundreds of soldiers in uniform. Assistant Commissioner Lynne Owens of the London Metropolitan Police sounded a lot like Janet Napolitano. “We want the public to be our eyes and ears and report anything suspicious or unusual.”
The mention of Muslims Against Crusades and its leader, Anjem Choudary, should set off alarm bells. Choudary founded another Islamic group, al-Muhajiroun, with Omar Bakri Muhammed, who admitted in 1998 he shares a special relationship with British intelligence. “I think now we have something called public immunity,” he said during an interview.
Authors Sean O’Neill and Daniel McGrory have documented a special relationship between Islamist leaders, including Abu Hamza al-Masri and Abu Qatada, and British intelligence.

The British Secret Service, MI6, protected Haroon Rashid Aswat, the alleged mastermind of the 7/7 London bombings, according to counterterrorism expert John Loftus. Aswat was affiliated with al-Muhajiroun.
Loftus said Aswat’s relationship with British intelligence began in the late 1990s with the war in Kosovo and the recruitment of the so-called Afghan Arabs, also known as the CIA-supported Mujahideen, in the concerted effort to undermine Yugoslavia. (See Andrew Gavin Marshall’s Empire, Energy and Al-Qaeda: The Anglo-American Terror Network: The Imperial Anatomy of al-Qaeda, Part II.) The late Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda also worked in the Balkans and received financial and military assistance from the United States and NATO, according to Isabel Vincent, writing for the National Post.
In 2004, Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed said British intelligence handles all Islamist groups of note in the United Kingdom.
“I believe Britain is harboring most of the Islamic opposition leaders of the Muslim world.… Because the British elites are very clever, they are not stupid like the Americans. Remember these people used to rule half of the world.… The British are not like the French and the Germans, they don’t slap you in the face, they stab you in the back. They want to buy some of these Islamic groups,” he said in 2004.
Mohammed said British intelligence has compromised the Muslim Brotherhood, the UK Islamic Mission, al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya, Iranian opposition groups, and the Iranian Ahlul Bait groups in Britain.
The Muslim Brotherhood was corrupted early on by British intelligence, and later by the CIA. According to CIA agent Miles Copeland, the agency began working with the Brotherhood in the 1950s. This signaled the beginning of an alliance between the traditional regimes and mass Islamic movements against Arab nationalism. The Israelis also exploited radical Islam in its war against Arab national movements, specifically Palestinian nationalist movement.
Muslims Against Crusades and Anjem Choudary appear to be ready to violate the ban on protesting and the British police on Friday. Considering the history of radical Islamists in the United Kingdom, it is entirely possible the confrontation now unfolding was designed by British intelligence.
The English Defense League, a reactionary group opposed to the spread of Islam, Sharia law and Islamic extremism in England, has promised to confront Muslims Against Crusades during the royal wedding later this week.
