Important Europe on High Terror Alert-Military Line Streets

Britain on Beheading Alert:
-Security Stepped up for Police and Jewish Schools as Fears Grow of New Jihadi Strike


  • Jewish community buildings will receive extra police protection after Paris
  • Intelligence sources fear fanatics will launch their own UK terror attacks
  • The country's 70 Jewish schools have been placed on high alert
  • Britain's senior anti-terror police chief warned of increased risk of attack
Daily Mail UK, 17 January 2015


Security was dramatically stepped up for police officers and the Jewish community in Britain yesterday amid fears of a terror attack.

Intelligence chiefs are worried that Islamist fanatics could try to copy the atrocities in France last week that cost 17 lives.
Four Jewish people and three police officers were among the dead.

Heavily armed police officers have been deployed in greater numbers because of the ISIS terror threat



Fears of similar carnage in the UK intensified on Thursday after commandos in Belgium killed Islamic State fanatics who wanted to behead a policeman or a judge. The plot held chilling echoes of the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby outside his barracks in Woolwich.
In other developments:
  • David Cameron and Barack Obama pledged to stand shoulder to shoulder in the fight against terrorism;
  • Intelligence sources said as many as 20 sleeper cells with 180 fanatics could be ready to strike in Europe;
  • Nearly 800 people have been put on a Home Office programme targeting potential extremists;


The Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly been given enhanced security on a public appearance.
Mark Rowley, the UK’s senior counter-terrorism officer, said: ‘The global picture of terrorist activity does give us heightened concern about the risk to the Jewish community.’
The Met assistant commissioner said the murders at a kosher supermarket in Paris, coupled with a rise in anti-semitic rhetoric from extremists, justified more patrols in areas with large Jewish populations, including London, Leeds and Manchester.
Some 263,000 people in Britain describe themselves as Jewish. The country’s 70 Jewish schools have been put on high alert.
The Community Security Trust, which advises Jewish institutions and groups on safety, said: ‘We spend an inordinate amount of money on security, particularly on our schools – as we should. Obviously there’s a change in the threat level because there could be people who might be perversely inspired by what they saw happen [in Paris].’




Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, pictured, confirmed that extra officers would be available to protect high-risk locations such as Jewish schools as well as potential threats against police






Mr Rowley added: ‘We are also considering what further measures we might put in place to enhance the security of police officers, given some of the deliberate targeting of the police we have seen in a number of countries across Europe and the world.’
He said the authorities were also looking at the safety of other minority communities.

Speaking after talks with President Obama at the White House, Mr Cameron said:

‘It’s very important to learn the lessons from anything happening elsewhere in Europe.
‘Could that happen here? What steps should be taken? So the police have announced today that they’ll be stepping up patrols, particularly to protect the Jewish community.
‘We have to be incredibly vigilant and look at all of these risks, particularly risks to police officers themselves and take every action that we can.’

The Prime Minister used the talks to press for tougher action to require internet firms to join the fight against terror by alerting authorities to suspicious exchanges online.
An official report last year concluded that Facebook failed to pass on information that could have prevented the murder of Fusilier Rigby and the site was a ‘safe haven for terrorists’.

Investigators across Europe are working around the clock to target returning Islamic State fighters.


The UK security services believe around 600 British Muslims have travelled to Syria and Iraq to join the so-called jihad, with around half now back home. Counter-terror chiefs fear they may carry out ‘lone wolf’ attacks.
Professor Michael Clarke, director-general of the Royal United Services Institute, a defence think-tank, said the chance of marauding attacks by armed gunmen was ‘likely to increase’.

Last year 3,934 potential extremists were referred to a Government deradicalisation programme and 777 were assessed as such a danger that they needed to take part.

We Can't Monitor all 300 Fanatics say Deluged Security Chiefs


ANALYSIS BY JAMES SLACK


Top of the list of EU countries whose citizens have travelled to fight in Syria and Iraq stand France, Britain and Belgium.
In the past week, two of those have witnessed terrifying scenes as jihadis swearing allegiance to Islamic State fought gun battles with the police. So is Britain next?
According to the security services, 600 extremists have travelled from the UK to fight in Syria. This compares with around 700 from France and 400-plus from Belgium.





Edward Snowden, pictured, inflicted huge damage on the capability of the security services to track fanatics


Of the 600 Britons, half are now back home. Thirty have been arrested and charged. It is not practically possible for MI5 to monitor the rest round-the-clock. More than 200 are known to be living in and around London.
A surveillance operation of this level requires 30 officers per suspect, plus manpower to monitor their electronic communications.
Such resources do not exist. David Cameron recently announced an extra £130million for the intelligence agencies, but it takes up to two years to train an MI5 agent.

Case managers will have to make hugely difficult decisions over which to watch most closely. In the majority of cases, they will get the judgment right.
At least four major plots have been foiled in the past year and since July 2005 there has been only one successful attack – the gruesome murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby.

Inevitably, MI5, like its counterparts in France and elsewhere, will sometimes call it wrong. Fusilier Rigby’s killers had appeared repeatedly on the Security Service radar but weren’t considered a priority.

So had the 7/7 bombers. And Mohammed Ahmed and Yusuf Sarwar, both 22 and serving 12 years in jail for terror offences, were arrested on their return to the UK from Syria only after Sarwar’s mother had reported them to the police.




Terrorists are increasingly aware of how to avoid the attentions of the various international security services


The threat from the jihadis takes two forms. Some remain in contact with Islamic State and Al Qaeda leaders in Syria who are directing their attacks.
These groups are believed to be planning ‘spectacular’ mass-casualty attacks, such as bringing down an airliner or a Mumbai-style bomb or gun attack.

The second type of threat is far more crude and likely to be attempted by a lone individual or a pair who will have either returned from Syria or been inspired by jihadi propaganda. Attack methods could include a hit-and-run, the beheading of a ‘high-value’ target or a mass-stabbing. The Lee Rigby-style scenario is the one that security officials consider most likely.

Already, one plot has been foiled and is before the courts. Such attacks are fiendishly hard to detect. Trying to buy explosives or an automatic rifle is likely to alert the security services. Grabbing a kitchen knife from a drawer will not.
In these instances, the best hope of foiling such a plot is if the protagonists talk about their intentions online.

However, in the wake of the Edward Snowden revelations, fanatics increasingly know how to avoid giving their secrets away on the internet. Indeed, it is hard to imagine a worse time for Snowden – now hiding in Russia – to inflict such huge damage on the capabilities of the security services.

SAS Rushed in to Guard our Streets as Al Qaeda Warns 'You Are Next'

SAS troops are patrolling the streets of Britain to prevent a Paris-style terrorist outrage.



GETTY

The SAS have been called to the streets to counter the threat of terrorism
The elite Special Forces have joined counter-terror police and 1,900 Army personnel in the biggest security operation since the 2012 London Olympics.

The news comes as Al Qaeda warned that France was only its third preferred target after Britain and the US.

Most of the Special Forces will be wearing civilian clothes, while some have donned police uniforms to accompany police officers who visit the homes of persons of interest in response to intelligence leads by MI5.
The security operation was rolled out after the Paris atrocities, in which 17 people, including three police officers, were killed as Islamic gunmen ran amok across the French capital over three days.
The bloodshed, masterminded by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, sent shockwaves around the world.

On Wednesday, fanatical brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi ambushed the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, known around the world for its regular depictions of the prophet Muhammad.
In the slaughter, 12 people were killed including five cartoonists, two police officers and the editor-in-chief Stephane Charbonnier.


Quote:
In a chilling threat laid bare on news website The Intercept, an Al Qaeda spokesman said:

“Why is France so thick in learning from its past mistakes. You come third in the target list, after US and Britain. If I were the latter, I would rather pull my sleeves up.”

The Sunday Express has learned that a 30-strong SAS team, divided into smaller groups, has been allocated to the Police Counter Intelligence Unit by the regiment’s inner sanctum, dubbed the Kremlin.

They form part of a “liaison plan” in which SAS troops work with the police in order to make sure that if required they already have good contacts.
An entire squadron of SAS soldiers is on permanent standby to react to an incident in the UK. Helicopters attached to 7 Squadron RAF were last night primed to rapidly transport the elite force.

Separately, members of a covert “human intelligence” unit based in the Midlands are working alongside police and intelligence officers to identify threats.
The “Humint” unit is thought to consist largely of Asian and Muslim operatives, and was used extensively in Afghanistan.

In addition members of the Special Reconnaissance Regiment were last night engaged in intercepting mobile communications.

A further 120 commandos of the Special Boat Service have also been called on to provide “maritime counter measures” to the Home Office.
Their task is to provide an immediate reaction force against the threat of a tanker or major vessel being hijacked off Britain’s coastline.

Regular exercises are held across the country and ports where local authorities, the police, military and Home Office test their procedures.
Last night senior sources confirmed that an additional 1,900 regular soldiers would be on standby as soon as they are selected from high-readiness regiments by Army HQ in Andover, Hampshire.
They will guard key installations with specialist intelligence units supporting the Home Office along with surveillance and electronic interception operations.

MI5 chief Andrew Parker warned that Al Qaeda radicals working out of Syria were planning mass casualty attacks in Britain and the West, targeting iconic landmarks.


A senior Army source said:

“We are on firm footing – and at the state of readiness we were at the height of the security operation during the Olympic Games.”

A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said any contingency plans were not a result of Paris. He added:

“As you would expect, potential responses to threats are regularly reviewed as part of prudent planning.”

French-Algerians Said, 34, and his brother Cherif, 32, had long-established terror links.
They escaped to an industrial unit 25 miles north-east of Paris where they were shot dead during a fire fight with French Special Forces on Friday afternoon.
The pair belonged to the same Paris jihadi underground network as Amedy Coulibaly, who stormed a Jewish grocery store in the east of the city on Friday taking 15 hostages and killing four.
Coulibaly, 32, who was also shot dead by commandos, murdered rookie policewoman Clarissa Jean-Philippe after blasting her in the head on Thursday.

It emerged yesterday that the wife of the extremist who mentored two of the terrorists lives in a taxpayer-funded house in Britain.

Djamel Beghal, once accused of being Osama Bin Laden’s chief recruiter in Europe, groomed Cherif Kouachi in jail and also knew Coulibaly. Beghal’s wife Sylvie, 45, moved to Leicester because she wanted to bring up their children in an Islamic environment.

Last night Jewish communities fearing a rising tide of anti-Semitism in Europe were urged by Israel to emigrate, where they would be “welcomed with open arms”.


UK Attack Not Ruled Out - Europol

By PA, 17 January 2015

The European Union's law enforcement agency said today that the UK public can be reassured by increased security measures on the streets but admitted a terrorist attack cannot be ruled out.

Rob Wainwright, director of Europol, said:

"Stopping everything is very difficult, containing the threat fully is very difficult, but I'm sure we will prevail, as we have prevailed against other forms of terrorism in the past."

Asked on Sky News whether he was saying there was no guarantee attacks such as those in Paris could be stopped, he said:

"No, there can't be, otherwise what happened in Paris wouldn't have happened. I think there is a realisation across the police and security community in Europe.

"But at the same time we have a very strong determination to maximise our capability to keep our citizens safe."
He said the scale of the problem had increased over the last 10 years. The terrorists no longer had a coherent, identifiable command and control structure such as in the past.

"But over those 10 years, the sophistication of the police response has also increased."

Mr Wainwright has said that at least 2,500 and possibly up to 5,000 people have travelled from Europe to conflicts in Syria and Iraq and might have been radicalised.
His comments came after Prime Minister David Cameron and US president Barack Obama held talks in Washington on how to tackle the terrorist threat.

Mr Cameron pushed for tougher requirements for internet firms to alert authorities to suspicious online exchanges, ban encrypted communications and store data.

A report last year into the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby concluded that Facebook failed to pass on information that could have prevented his death.

The American firm had previously shut down accounts belonging to one of the killers, Michael Adebowale, because he had discussed terrorism - but did not raise concerns with the security services.

The two leaders agreed to establish a new joint group to exchange information and expertise on countering the rise of violent extremism.
Asked how big the encrypted communication problem was, Mr Wainwright said:

"We've been engaged at Europol in combating various forms of cyber crime online for the last two years or more. It's clear that the internet is becoming of increasing utility to criminal networks.
"The nature of encrypted communication makes it more difficult for police to intercept this communication online than to intercept telephone communication in the real world."

Troops Take to Belgian Streets to Guard Against Attacks

BRUSSELS, 17 Jan (Reuters) - Belgium is deploying hundreds of troops to guard potential targets of terrorism, including Jewish sites and diplomatic missions, following a series of raids and arrests, the defence minister said on Saturday.


Up to 300 military will be stationed at locations such as the U.S. and Israeli embassies in Brussels and NATO and EU institutions.
Troops will reinforce police at least until Thursday, when authorities will review the national threat level, set at 3 on a scale of 4 this week.

"It's very important to say that this wasn't a simple decision. But it was necessary, at a time when police are overly engaged, for the army to enter in a supporting role," Defence Minister Steven Vandeput told reporters.

On Thursday, two gunmen were killed in the Belgian town of Verviers during raids on an Islamist group that authorities said was planning to attack police. (Reporting by Robert-Jan Bartunek and Barbara Lewis; editing by Andrew Roche)
