The New Al-Qaeda: Blonde Haired, Blue Eyed Westerners
The story, which is based on a comment by a single MI5 source (must be true then) that was subsequently picked up in a Scotsman article, claims that Al-Qaeda have recruited 1,500 white Britons to carry out attacks in the UK.
'Blond-Haired, Blue-Eyed' Terrorists: Warning In Upcoming Senate Report On Yemeni Terror Threat
Karen DeYoung and Greg Jaffe today report in the Washington Post on a forthcoming report from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that assesses the threat posed by "as many as three dozen American citizens who converted to Islam in prison and moved to Yemen after their release in the past year."
An additional concern, it says, "is a group of nearly 10 non-Yemeni Americans who travelled to Yemen, converted to Islam, became fundamentalists, and married Yemeni women so they could remain in the country." One U.S. official, it reports, described them as "blond-haired, blue-eyed types" who "fit a profile of Americans whom al-Qaeda has sought to recruit over the past several years."
UP to 20 people were feared dead last night after two terrorist atrocities rocked Norway.
A gunman dressed as a cop massacred teens camping on an island – two hours after a huge car bomb wrecked government buildings in capital Oslo.
Cops fear Islamist fanatics were out to kill PM Jens Stoltenberg, who was due to visit his political party’s youth camp on Utøya island – where a man was arrested. Witnesses claimed the gun manica was blond with blue eyes and spoke Norweigan – raising feers that he was a homegrown al-Qaeda convert.
So despite admitting they did 'not know' if al-Qaeda was responsible, they put ''Al-Qaeda' massacre' on the front page anyway.
