"al-Qaeda" doesn't exist its a huge propaganda hologram, and yet it does exist.
The so called "al-Qaeda" with a network of 5000 members at their peak in 2001, with Osama Bin Laden as their undisputed leader, carrying out terrorist operations around the world including 9/11, with a grand strategic plan, out smarting Western intelligence doesn't exist. This is pure mythology and propaganda.
A rag tag bag of seriously misguided men mostly from Arab countries who have very close relationships with Western intelligence officials trained by them, paid by them as mercenaries certainly does exist....carrying out terrorist/security operations around the world for Western Intelligence as guns for hire, and as a fifth column destabilizing Muslim countries.
Ironically and sadly many Muslim countries such as Pakistan willingly and knowingly participate in this elaborate hoax, because in return they receive money and military hardware from the USA.
In the UK, recruitment of "al-Qaeda" begins at university run by MI-5.....either through the Islamic Society or the banned Hizb ut-Tahrir/ Al-Muhajiroun. There is one MI-5 officer stationed in all 100 university institutions........and that is where I first had my experience of MI-5 officers back in 1986, and noted their presence. The more "promising students" are then directly recruited by MI-5, and given free financial support, career enhancing employment, generous social security benefits and the skills to develop their political careers through mosque and community networking. Many famously or infamously become media stars, and are regular get to go experts on all things related to the immigrant community, and have suspiciously easy access to the corridors of power, on top of the backing they get from the spooks.
Unfortunately due to my Pan-Iranian nationalism since the late seventies (developed at a very early conscious age 12/13), my humanist perspective of the world (civilization means ALL humans moving forward in the world at various speeds through modernization and greater secular education with me since 1996/97), and especially secularism (8/9 age) engendered from my best mentor, my father, MI-5 did not have much luck with me.
This led to frustration on their part and various forms of criminal dirty tricks ensued, which has resulted in me leaving the country consequently; gas from 1998, micro-wave machines from January 1999, and serious criminal slander, eager persuasion of other entities in other countries to follow their good habits.
"Soft tactics" were also tried between 1985--2002 in the UK.......using blond Muslims or English converts to Islam thinking that I was some sort of coconut, extremely attractive girls in the hijab, poverty no money, no career access/success unless I relented to Islam, poor health, LONELINESS----"You are on your own boy", on the other hand overly friendly "Islamist" trying to ingratiate all too obviously, ridicule, shame.........Not ALL students with Muslim names in the UK are targeted by MI-5, but a good deal are.
But within this "War" with MI-5 in the UK, I qualified with a law degree whilst facing much antics and problems at the university, ....and a masters in International law whilst facing MI-5 dirty tricks.....and qualified as a Barrister, whilst facing MI-5 dirty tricks. Then a teacher.
Alternatively I could have relented, grown a beard and submitted myself to MI-5. Possibly would then have had a promising career and life in the UK, with wife and children (The fact of which one is reminded of regularly) as with so many in ones peer group. But I chose not to.
Clearly many others in the gay faggot spook fraternity for sexual pleasure or career meaning and fulfillment would like me to don a beard, and grasp an AK-47. But I think I will feel silly, and look silly.
Unfortunately those that do submit, allured by money and the connections to state power are then sent by MI-5 for "foreign trips" and direct ops in Pakistan/Afghanistan, the Balkans in the 1990's if I remember correctly, Somalia, Yemen, Libya, Tunisia and now Syria.
Another group, more favored by the CIA is the recruitment of criminals from Muslim countries who work for "al-Qaeda". These criminals, then grow a beard and spout a few verses from the Koran and are then given the training and ops direction by MI-5.
There are about 40 plus Muslim countries. All must fight ANY forms of Political Islam, since it is clear that since the 18th century it has been British colonial, and later American and Israeli policy to use Islamists to destroy Muslim countries, using the fifth column of political Islam.
This was the case of the Muslim League created in India in 1905 by the British.
The Muslim Brotherhood created by the British in 1920's Egypt.
The Mullahs of Iran cultivated by the British/USA since the 1950's.
The Taliban created by the CIA in 1994.
The Somali Islamists created by MI-5/CIA in the 1990's.
The JI of Indonesia created by the CIA in the 1960's.
Hamas created by Israel in the 1970's.
"Qatada - has been dubbed 'Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe'. (Preacher Abu Qatada appeal )
According to The Times, Abu Qatada is an MI5 agent:
(Al-Qaeda cleric exposed as an MI5 double agent - World - Times Online )
"One of al-Qaeda's most dangerous figures has been revealed as a double agent working for MI5...
"MI5 agents held meetings with the cleric...
"He disappeared from his family home in West London just before the UK's terror law came into force.
"Indignant French officials accused MI5 of helping the cleric to abscond. While he remained on the run, one intelligence chief in Paris was quoted as saying: “British intelligence is saying they have no idea where he is, but we know where he is and, if we know, I’m quite sure they do.”
"Almost a year later Abu Qatada was found hiding in a flat not far from Scotland Yard."
