British Jihadis Gloat About Afghan War Toll

From The Daily Express:

BRITISH Muslim fanatics sparked fresh fury last night by praising Taliban “heroes” for sending our troops back from Afghanistan in body bags.

Dozens of homegrown “jihadis” have posted website messages cheering last weekend’s carnage in Helmand province that saw Britain’s death toll rise to 204 soldiers.

Last night there were calls by senior politicians for the Home Office to crack down on the hate-filled rants that will distress even further the relatives of troops who gave their lives fighting the Taliban.

The shameful website involved stoked up hatred as it emerged that one of two soldiers killed trying to save their mortally wounded commander had recently got married before deploying to Afghanistan.

The commander had got engaged while home on leave in June.

The tragedies were revealed yesterday as the Ministry of Defence named the three soldiers, all from 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, who died on Sunday.

The gloating jihadi website, Islamic Awakening, is a forum for Islamic extremism, prompting a slew of vile attacks on the efforts of British troops to rescue Afghanistan from the grip of fundamentalists.

The first messages were posted within minutes of the news of the latest outrage in Helmand on Sunday.

“Isma’eel”, said: “Man, they really are dropping like flies over there lol [laugh out loud].”

Another, calling himself “AbuJunayd”, said: “Inshallah [God-willing] the more the kuffs [non-Muslims] deploy, the more the bros will send em back in body bags, or crutches or with serious psychological problems.”

“Waziri” said: “By command of Allah, the invading forces will be forced to withdraw humiliated and defeated by a group of men who between them do not possess even one transport helicopter.”

“Noorah”, said: “They are really getting whooped. Don’t know how they think they can win.”

Senior Tory MP Patrick Mercer, chairman of the Commons counter-terrorism committee and a former Army officer, said: “It’s deeply distasteful and clearly the last thing that relatives of the dead want to see or hear.”

Last night the Daily Express informed the Office for Security and Counter Terrorism at the Home Office of the website’s content.

A spokeswoman said: “The role of the internet in radicalisation is an area of concern to Government.”

This tip was sent to me by The Frozen North - and I don't think I can do better than his own summing up of the issue:

Oh that’s all right then! We have treasonous scum living among us who want to see British troops die, and the role of the internet in radicalisation is an “area of concern”? How about the role of those people who were using the internet? If someone is drunk driving and causes an accident, no sane person who expected to be taken seriously would say that the role of cars is an “area of concern” would they? It’s the bugger who was behind the wheel we’d all want to see jailed.

The same principle applies here: the people who sent in those posts to that “jihadi” website should be identified. Their entire lives should be turned inside out, and any accomplices found. Every effort made to find out just how deeply these traitors have managed to embed themselves in our country.

If these are “homegrown” people with British passports, then we should take a leaf out of Geert Wilders’ book, and have their passports taken away from them, then put them on a plane back to wherever their families originally came from. Not following a lengthy, legal-aid funded appeal process either. Immediately. If they’re calling for British troops to die then they’ve forfeited all claims to live in Britain, and our government should recognise that, and send them packing.

"...calls by senior politicans to crack down..." etc etc yadda yadda yadda.

No no NO, it's simpler than that: people like this SHOULD NOT BE in Britain.

I wonder if our Dutch friend has spent time on that website?
