PLOT TO KILL UK PM GORDON BROWN AND TONY BLAIR WAS INITIATED ON TERROR WEBSITE HOSTED IN TAMPA FL ON JAN 24th, FIVE MUSLIMS ARRESTED SO FAR. CLICK ON IMAGE FOR VIDEO FROM LONDON TELEGRAPH.
Two men were arrested at Manchester airport last week as they prepared to leave the country and a third, the brother of one of the other men, was detained in Accrington, Lancashire where he worked as a security guard so far five men have been arrested and three have been formerly charged with terrorism offences.
Counter-terrorism sources said the arrests related to a statement which appeared on an Arabic language website called http://www.al-ekhlaas.net/ , which often carries messages from senior members of al-Qaeda.
The message, written in English, appeared only briefly on January 24, and claimed to be from Shaykh Umar Rabie al-Khalaila, "The leader of al-Qaeda in Britain." (THE AL-QAEDA WEBSITE WAS SHUT DOWN BY THE TAMPA TRIBUNE ON JANUARY 28TH 2008)
In it, the message demanded the withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan and the release of prisoners from Belmarsh high security jail in south east London including the radical clerics Abu Hamza al-Masri and Abu Qatada.Qatada was later released after an Appeal Court ruling and put under house arrest.
It is understood the men had been under surveillance by police and two were arrested as they prepared to leave the country for Finland.
The message demanded: "We, the organization of Al-Qaeda in Britain, offer a truce to the British government."Our demands are as follows:
"I. A complete withdrawal of the British troops from Afghanistan and Iraq.
"II. To free all Muslim captives from Belmarsh prison, and the foremost of them Shaykh Abu Qatada al-Filistini and Shaykh Abu Hamza al-Misri [sic]."Referring to the leader of al-Qaeda and a man said to be the leader of the "Islamic state of Iraq" the statement went on: "If the British government fails to respond to our demands by the last day of March 2008 as they fail to answer to the truce of our Shaykh Usama bin Laden and to the truce of the Emir of Believers Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, then the Martyrdom seekers of the organisation of al-Qaeda in Britain will target all the political leaders especially Tony Blair and Gordan Brown [sic], and we will also target all Embassies, Crusaders Centers and their Interests through out the country, with the help of Allah."
It signed off: "Finally, all praise is to Allah. " The men arrested were all British-born Muslims of Asian origin from Blackburn, Lancashire.
The shutting down of the Al-Ekhlaas forum website was our story, we broke it in the Tampa Tribune on Jan.28th see here, and also on Jihad Watch see here.
TAMPA - A Tampa Web-hosting company has taken down a Web site used by al-Qaida for communicating in secret and hiding files from investigators. The company, Noc4Hosts, took the action Monday after it was informed about the site by The Tampa Tribune. Noc4Hosts, at 400 N. Tampa St., is in an office building that also rents space to the Tampa district of the U.S. attorney's office.
We followed up with the Arizona Republic on Feb 1st 2008 see here. No one has put two and two together about the date of the threat to Brown and Blair on the Al-Ekhlaas website on Jan 24th and the date that Al-Ekhlass http://www.al-ekhlaas.net/ was shut down on Jan 28th for about 10 days by us.
There was a lot of media and internet coverage of the Tampa Tribune and Arizona Republic stories in the USA from Jan 28th 2008 to Feb 3rd 2008 on shutting down http://www.ek-ls.org/ the website for Al-Ekhlaas Forum and all the other mirror sites they use.
http://www.el-ls.org/ was the mother ship for Al-Ekhlaas forum and at least 5 other mirror sites that were hosted in Tampa and Phoenix at the time the threat was posted and all of those sites were shut down for at least 10 days after the stories in the USA came out.
The dates of the posting of the threat to kill PM Gordon Brown and ex-PM Blair were posted on www.ek-ls.org/forum on Jan 24th, 2008, the Tampa Tribune and the Arizona Republic were able to disrupt service for www.ek-ls.org/forum for at least 10 days from January 28th 2008 until they found a server in Malaysia, this is very significant.
Following are the Al-Qaeda websites shut down on Jan 28th and Feb. 1st, 2008 in Tampa Fl and Phoenix AZ that were posting the plot to kill PM Gordon Brown and Tony Blair . The ones in Tampa were all the same Al-Ekhlaas Forum website with just different mirror-site variations, they all have the same IP address 188.8.131.52 .
The Al-Ekhlaas dirtbags had to get a new IP address when they moved to Phoenix AZ and then another new IP address when they finally got up and running in Malaysia after being banned in the USA. All of the following websites are now active out of the Malaysia web hosting company.
