It’s amazing that people still pimp the idea that every day, run-of-the-mill fascists are the present danger to society…
Islamo-nazis are embedded in every sector of our governments and institutions, as well as in all the various political parties of different states. They have political and financial power that the (crorrectly) marginalized Neo-Nazis could only dream of.
Taxman kept quiet while £8bn fraud helped fund Osama bin Laden
For years a UK gang infiltrated government agencies and funneled cash to al-Qaeda but the watching HMRC kept MI5 in the dark
Gangsters have stolen billions of pounds of British taxpayers’ money and used tens of millions to fund terrorism, according to police and intelligence files.
A network of British Asians based in London, Buckinghamshire, Birmingham, northwest England and Scotland mounted VAT and benefit frauds against the exchequer over two decades and made further gains from mortgage and credit card fraud targeting banks and individuals. The group netted an estimated £8bn in public money alone.
The gang, which has links to the 7/7 London bombings in which 52 people died, is alleged to have sent 1% of its gains, or £80m, to al-Qaeda in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where it funded madrasahs, training camps and other terrorist activities, according to the leaked files.
Secret intelligence held by MI5 states that some of the money reached the Pakistani compound that housed the al-Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden before it was stormed by US special forces in 2011.
The sum the gang extracted from the Treasury is almost triple the annual government expenditure on MI5, MI6 and GCHQ and approaches the central government grant for policing in England and Wales each year.
The Sunday Times is prevented from revealing the identities of gang members by court orders dating back almost 10 years. Last night Meg Hillier, chairwoman of the public accounts committee, said she would consider launching a parliamentary inquiry and would question Sir Mark Sedwill, the cabinet secretary and national security adviser to the prime minister, tomorrow.
The gang infiltrated multiple government agencies and corrupted local politicians in its war on British taxpayers, the files allege. Much of the detail comes from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and Special Branch, which investigated the network over a 20-year period.
Some of the information, which highlights the role of an accountant in a provincial English town, was discovered on a discarded laptop in Afghanistan by CIA and MI6 officers during their search for bin Laden after the 9/11 attack in 2001.
HMRC intelligence officers also identified the gang’s links to Shehzad Tanweer, a terrorist involved in the 7/7 London bombings in 2005, at least two years before the attack. However, senior HMRC officials declined to use the intelligence to mount prosecutions and take the gang out of operation until after the bombings.
