Six Seven Eight Terrorists Arrested In UK (Updated)

Members of the Religion of Peace™? No way!!11!!

I'm shocked, SHOCKED, I tell ya!

From AP:

A total of six people were arrested there and in separate raids in other parts of the capital, but Scotland Yard said the operation was not linked to the upcoming games, due to kick off on July 27.

Police didn't identify the suspects, who range in age from 18 to 30.

However Mizanur Rahman, who is involved with a Muslim activist group, said all those arrested were British Muslims. He said the three men taken into custody in Stratford, the neighborhood that contains Olympic Park, were brothers and claimed that one was a former police support officer.

Scotland Yard declined to comment on the claim.

Update II: (Un)Related, it hasn't been a good summer for Islamic terrorists (H/T: Anna in comments)...

From The Telegraph:

Minh Quang Pham, 29, is said to have sworn an oath of allegiance to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsular (AQAP) after leaving Britain to join the terrorist group in December 2010. [...]

He is said to have “facilitated communications and provided expert advice and assistance in photography and graphic design” for AQAP’s media wing.

He allegedly met two American citizens, referred to only as “American CC-1” and “American CC-2”, working with the former to produce online propaganda for AQAP.

At the time Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, both of whom were US citizens, were running the propaganda operation for AQAP which included the notorious on-line magazine called “Inspire.”

Update III: Going for the Hat Trick, another Islamic terrorist arrested, though this one in France, not the UK. This one appears to be a major enabler. Hat tip to Howie.

Expect updates on both all three stories.

Update IV by SH: The Telegraph's story on Samir Khan's assistant Pham aka "Amin" is way behind. I posted on it on the 29th of last month
