Woolwich murder: MI6 spoke with Michael Adebolajo’s brother Jeremiah 11 times

PA-16702370 (1)

WITH his brother Michael Adebolajo accued of murdering Lee Rigby in Woolwich, the suspect’s younger brother Jeremiah, 26, claims MI6 spoke with him 11 times.

How do you know it’s MI6? We’re not told.

The younger Adebolajo tells the Times that when he working in Saudi Arabia, MI6 sought him out. He says that in 2012 MI5 spoke to him when he arrived at Heathrow Airport.

The MI6 men showed Jeremiah a few pictures:

“One picture of a guy, I didn’t know who he was, another picture was vaguely familiar at the time but I couldn’t remember who he was, and they also showed me a picture of my brother-in-law, married to my younger sister.”

That man was James Thompson.

What about the spooks?

“They were always looking for my knowledge and dealings with the two main individuals they had shown me. They asked me biographical stuff, what kind of mosques did I go to, do I pray, that sort of thing. Like they were trying to build a profile of me… They were never openly aggressive, but they were always implicitly threatening. There was never the understanding that if I wanted, I could stand up and say, that’s enough. There was always the understanding that I have to cooperate or I would lose my job and I don’t know what else.”

Back in May, ITV reported:

Michael Adebolajo’s brother-in-law James Thompson spoke to ITV News about repeated attempts by MI5 to recruit Adebolajo as an informant, and repeated contact they had with other family members seeking information about him.

Mr Thompson claims that MI5 contacted him Michael and Michale’s other brother:

Me and my other brother-in-law were obviously pestered and then there was obviously Michael who was pestered more than us. The interesting thing is that they would ask us about him rather than ourselves so we could see they had a keen interest in him even though we couldn’t put the pieces together because he was just a family man, he had kids and he worked, he didn’t do anything that we considered extreme.

Such are the facts…

Woolwich murder: idiot Michael Adebolajo should shut up and listen to Joe O’Connell

PA-4268186 (1)

THE more Michael Adebolajo talks the more those slow on the uptake should realise what a deranged idiot he is. One of the two men accused of murdering Lee Rigby in Woolwich told the Old Baileyn via video link from Belmarsh Prison: “I am a man, I am a soldier, I am a British citizen.” No. You’re a nutcase. A soldier has rules and discipline.

Adebolajo, 28, then banged on about being strip-searched, accused the judge, Mr Justice Sweeney of trying to “stifle the truth” and knew – just knew – that Allah saw him as “a brave judge and a righteous one, perhaps”. The court did indulge the accsued, calling him by his new name Mujahid Abu Hamza during the hearing.

And on he banged:

“It’s not about you. This whole trial is about more than that. It’s not about me, even though I play a major part in proceedings… Really and truly it’s about the good, honest, decent, hardworking British members of society, whether they be Muslim or non-Muslim. They are the ones that have suffered the most because of my actions. It’s possible throughout life that people may sometimes smother you and say things about you that are false. But as a regular citizen and human being, we have to get over it. I believe that the British people are decent. Only a fraction will wish to slander and lie against me. But the rest would prefer to know the truth, even if the truth came back to bite me on the buttock.”

Michael Adebolajo kisses the Koran in court and Islam winces

MICHAEL Adebolajo is not shy. The 28-year-old accused of murdering Lee Rigby in a barabric sacrifice to his god kissed the Koran as he left the dock at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. Before leaving – we’ll see him next at the Old Bailey – the suspect told Deputy Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot that he wanted to be adressed as Mujahid Abu Hamza. He said:

“I am only a man, I would like to alleviate the pain.”

Is the accused a psychotic nutjob hiding behind a religion? Well, yes, allegedly. But he keeps harping on about Islam. And many are listening. Says Tony Blair

“There is a problem within Islam – from the adherents of an ideology which is a strain within Islam. We have to put it on the table and be honest about it. Of course there are Christian extremists and Jewish, Buddhist and Hindu ones. But I am afraid this strain is not the province of a few extremists. It has at its heart a view about religion and about the interaction between religion and politics that is not compatible with pluralistic, liberal, open-minded societies.”

Dennis Prager takes a view on the alleged killers’ claims that the murder of Lee Rigby was an act of righteous vengeance:

Here’s a question for Muslims and leftists who buy this argument about the West killing Muslims in Afghanistan: Who are we fighting in Afghanistan?

I thought the Brits and Americans were fighting the Taliban, the people who throw acid in Muslim girls’ faces for attending school, the people who murder nurses who inoculate Muslim children against disease. Now, if fighting the Taliban is to be equated with fighting Muslims, this is a real contradiction of everything much of the Islamic world and virtually all of the left have been contending for years – that the Taliban represent a tiny group of extremists in the Muslim world, and that they have so completely perverted Islam that they cannot even be called Muslims.

Well, you can’t have it both ways. If killing the Taliban is the same as “killing Muslims,” then you can’t argue that the Taliban don’t represent Islam or Muslims.

So, on the issue of the West fighting in Afghanistan, the Muslims and the left need to make up their minds: Is killing the Taliban a service or a disservice to Muslims? This is the first and last question both groups need to answer. Everything else is commentary.

Much to debate…
