Anjem Choudary Radical Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary was one of nine men aged between 22 and 51 who have been arrested

Nine men, including the radical Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary, have been arrested in London on suspicion of being members of a banned organisation.

Officers are searching 18 premises in London and one in Stoke-on-Trent.

The Met Police said it was part of an ongoing inquiry into Islamist-related terrorism and not in response to any immediate threat to the public.

Mr Choudary is the former UK head of the Islamist group al-Muhajiroun or Islam4UK, banned in the UK in 2010.

The arrested men, aged between 22 and 51, are being held at police stations in central London.

Analysis

Anjem Choudary

by Dominic Casciani, Home Affairs correspondent

Anjem Choudary is a deeply controversial Islamic figure, a man who many Muslims despise because they believe he causes enormous damage to their position in British society.

Alongside another now-banned cleric, he once spearheaded Al-Muhajiroun, a group that argued that the West is fighting a war against Muslims and Islam.

When the government banned the group, some of its former members founded new organisations, including Islam4UK and Muslims Against Crusades - which were also later banned.

The latter group's protests against British soldiers returning from Afghanistan, prompted right-wing extremists to launch the English Defence League.

Mr Choudary has always denied allegations that he has either incited or glorified acts of terrorism.

In a statement the Met said the men were being held on suspicion of being members of a proscribed organisation, supporting a proscribed organisation contrary to Section 11 and 12 of the Terrorism Act 2000 and encouraging terrorism, contrary to Section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

Way to go Britain, way to go. but don't be surprised if there follower Obama doesn't contact you, and asks to make a deal with you. Britain, it's time to rid your country of this disease called Islam once and for all. I say, send them all packing.  

Britain appears to be awakening from a deep sleep!  Late to recognize the problem, possibly too late, but at least they have started.  Sadly, with our MUSLIM PRESIDENT, we continue to talk and "stage" actions.

Don't be fooled, the airstrikes are truly just PIN PRICKS.  Very little real damage is being inflicted.  Antennas are damaged, but not the buildings that house the EVIL DOERS!  Few, if any Muslim terrorists are casualties.

The pictures, carefully selected and provided by the White House are intended to persuade the American public how "tough" Obama is.  Don't believe your lying eyes!  It is all electioneering!

GATHER ALL FOREIGN BORN MUSLIMS AND BEGIN DEPORTING ASAP . LOOK UP ARMENIAN GENOCIDE . I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT GREEKS HATE TURKS FOR THAT VERY REASON . THESE MONSTERS DO NOT BELONG ON OUR SOIL .

Is he the guy that was invited to Fox News on Hannity and spoke foolishly and arrogantly? I do believe so!

I am glad that he got arrested in London... may it follow more to get arrested and confined to prison and keep people protected!

yep, maybe the British parliament switched its intelligence resources to the Fox News network.

No Oleg Gielman; anyone that knows Sean Hannity at Fox News will attest to the fact that he always invites guests who are politically good or not good to let the public know what they are about. If they are good; we will know; and if they are not, we will know that also. I just turned on the news and it was confirmed that the radical muslim in question is indeed the murder-muslim that Hannity had on last week and if you saw the segment, you would see that Hannity drilled him and that muslim-terrorist was as arrogant as they come!

Also, we just learned that Eric Holder has just announced to step down! Yay! Now I hope that Congress will take the action that Boehner should have taken long ago! By the way... I haven't heard much about Boehner; except that he said that Obama was his friend! Can't Republicans take him out and replace him...hopefully with someone that represents conservative values! Let me know if you have any information about what Boehner has recently done or not.  Thanks.

I know, I saw it ...but as far as politicians are concerned, if it's not on "the news" then murderers are innocent until proven guilty or they just don't exist or everything politicians don't say "doesn't happen" ...so The Fifth Amendment applies to the guilty, only.

Nice start.

Start rounding up all of the so-called "Controversial Islamic Clerics" all over the free world. These devious creeps are regularly given FREE air time to spew their typical HATE rhetoric. Stop stroking these treacherous animals in the name of fairness. We know who they are and WHAT they are. Arrest them or send them back.

 

Good for the UK, this EVIL guy praised ISIS and he is ANTI-ISRAEL /ANTI-SEMITIC /ANTI-CHRISTIAN!!

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
