Pursuing their Own Tails

God forbid these people have to actually pay their workers – it appears that the Muslim community in UK are less willing to provide slave labour. Usually MI5 are able to tap into the networks of `brainwashed’ activists who bother people endlessly and disseminate information on their targets private lives. Most of these `zombie’ individuals are zombies in the sense that they are deluded or ignorant as to the role they are actually playing, and the combined affect that their behaviour has on individuals and society as a whole. But be sure that the UK Government pulls the strings and provides pretexts when required. Then they watch as everyone dances, all the way along the line.

As a side-effect of the process (possibly unwanted but firmly in keeping with Security Services drive for a more `1984,’ Orwellian society) individuals become alienated and their beliefs and behaviour more immoderate. As society overall becomes polarised extremism prospers. Chicken or the egg arguement notwithstanding, what is becoming obvious is that first came a serious myopia or perhaps a deliberate oversight of what is required to create a sense of community and integration.

This situation will soon become more acute due to the massive influx of refugees who will inevitably be exploited and manipulated in the same way as a part of social engineering. Even if they are not specifically targeted by Security Services they will be viewed as targets by individuals from pro-Israeli groups and conversely pro-Palestinian groups, pro-LGBT groups, nationalist organisations and far-right groups, and anyone else with an agenda that they wish to pursue. Is it not easy to project what will happen to some young men, already scarred by war and displaced, their lives lacking in stability and affection, who fall between the cracks and become radicalised by such treatment? Would these men be so easily swayed by radical preachers if not for the intolerable situation created by the external pressure placed upon them by social engineering? Are they able to communicate their experiences and are they equiped with adequate coping mechanism to succeed in such a divisive society which actively marginalises them due to their beliefs or even those of their family? Is it unreasonable to extrapolate that this situation does indeed serve the agendas of countries such as US and Israel, and their allies in Europe? The Government in UK is overseeing a frying pan to which they add more and more ingredients without any idea of the intended recipe. Or so it seems.

MI5 pays UK Muslims to spy on terror suspects

UK intelligence agency has paid up to £2,000 for reports on alleged radical activity

MI5 is paying Muslim informants for controversial short-term spying missions to help avert terrorist attacks by homegrown Islamist extremists.

Individuals across the UK, including in Manchester and London, are being employed on temporary assignments to acquire intelligence on specific targets, according to sources within the Muslim community. One said that they knew of an informant recently paid £2,000 by the British security services to spy on activities relating to a mosque over a six-week period.

However, the use of payments to gather intelligence prompted warnings that the system risked producing information “corrupted” by the money on offer.

The initiative is being co-ordinated under the government’s official post-9/11 counter-terrorism strategy, specifically the strand known as Pursue, which has an official remit to “stop terrorist attacks in this country and against our interest overseas. This means detecting and investigating threats at the earliest possible stage.”

A source, not from Whitehall but with knowledge of the payments, said: “It’s been driven by the [intelligence] agencies, it’s a network of human resources across the country engaged to effectively spy on specific targets. It’s decent money.”

They did not divulge the number of informants receiving government funding or how much of the agency’s national security budget is allocated to such transactions. However, the use of payments to gather information prompted calls for caution from senior figures in the Muslim community, who warned that such transactions could produce tainted intelligence.

Salman Farsi, spokesman for the East London Mosque, the largest in the UK, said: “We want our national security protected but, as with everything, there needs to be due scrutiny and we need to ensure things are done properly.

“If there’s money on the table, where’s the scrutiny or the oversight to ensure whether someone has not just come up with some fabricated information? Money can corrupt.”

Farsi said that lessons should be learned from the government’s central counter-radicalisation programme, called Prevent, which was introduced following the 7 July bombings, but despite tens of millions of pounds spent and hundreds of initiatives has been criticised for failing to achieve its goals.

“When they started dishing out money, everyone was willing for a bit of money to dish the dirt, make up stuff. There’s good work to be done, but quite frankly you don’t need to send in informants to mosques to find out what’s going on. We need a fresh approach, genuine community engagement,” said Farsi.

Details of the network of informants paid by the security services follows the first live interview with a head of MI5 – director general Andrew Parker – in the 106-year history of the agency, an opportunity that he used to call for more up-to-date surveillance powers.

Days earlier, on Tuesday, the home secretary, Theresa May, met major internet and telecoms companies to seek their support for a new surveillance bill, prompting speculation that the government is preparing a choreographed campaign to revive its controversial snooper’s charter legislation.
