The British National Party’s anti-war stance with regard to Iraq and Afghanistan and its insistence that these conflicts exacerbate terrorism in Britain has been confirmed as correct by the former head of MI5.
Speaking before the Iraq Inquiry yesterday, Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller told the world that invading Iraq and Afghanistan had increased the terror threat in Britain.
The BNP has said all along that the two primary causes of Islamist terrorism in Britain and the rest of the Western world are mass immigration and biased foreign policy in the Middle East.
Mass immigration has allowed millions of Muslims to enter Britain, Europe and even now the United States of America where they are now proceeding with their 1,300 year-old invasion of the West.
This time, however, the invasion is not being carried out by armies, sword and cannons as of old, but by immigration and “invasion via the womb.”
The second cause of terrorism is, the BNP has argued, the illegal and immoral wars which the Labour-Tory axis of lies has plunged Britain into.
These wars, the BNP has said, have served to incite Islamists in Britain and to provide them with ideal recruiting propaganda amongst the Muslim population in the West.
The Labour-Tory liars have always denied this to be the case and have instead insisted that the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan (and their planned attack on Iran) is to “prevent terrorism” at home.
Baronness Eliza has however confirmed that the wars had served to radicalised a generation of young Muslims in Britain which had “substantially increased” the risk of a terrorist atrocity on UK soil.
“Our involvement in Iraq radicalised, for want of a better word, a whole generation of young people . . . who saw our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as being an attack on Islam,” she told the inquiry.
“Arguably, we gave Osama Bin Laden his Iraqi jihad. What Iraq did was produce a fresh impetus to people prepared to engage in terrorism.”
She went on to link the Iraq war directly to terrorist attacks on trains in London.
“The war featured in the video wills that we retrieved on various occasions after various plots where terrorists who had expected to be dead explained why they had done what they did,” she said.
She also revealed that MI5 had been forced to ask ministers to double its budget to cope with the dramatic increase in the number of Islamist terror plots it had to monitor following the invasion of Iraq.
“We were pretty well swamped — that's possibly an exaggeration — but we were very overburdened with intelligence on a broad scale that was pretty well more than we could cope with in terms of plots, leads to plots and things that we needed to pursue,” she said.
It was also revealed that Baroness Eliza has specifically warned that the allegation that Iraq was in possession of, or was going to use, WMDs, was almost non-existent.
Despite this information from the head of British intelligence, the lying Blair regime, fully supported by the Tories, announced to the world in the “Iraq dossier” that Saddam Hussein possessed WMDs.

By Melanie Phillips. The Times bestseller, now with a new chapter. For years, Britain pretended to be tough on terrorism, while invading two countries.
But when it was hit by the 7/7 suicide bombers, the secret was out. Having looked the other way since 1989, Britain has become the hub for Islamist terror throughout Europe and beyond.
In Londonistan, Melanie Phlilips reveals herself as that typical breed of journalist who can identify the problem in great detail, but is obvious in her inability to address the cause of the problem, namely Third World immigration.
This flaw aside, Londonistan gives a revealing insight into the Islamist threat facing Britain -- and the establishment’s refusal to deal with it. Paperback, 336 pages. Click here to order online.
