Intelligence Agencies Admit 23,000 Jihadis Live In Britain; 3,000 Pose "Imminent Threat"

Tyler Durden's picture

After failing to thwart two terror attacks that have occurred in the U.K. so far this year – both of which were carried out by suspected jihadis who were known to U.K. authorities – intelligence agencies have identified 23,000 potential jihadis living in Britain, according to a report published in the Times of London on Saturday. 

The report emerged after U.K. Prime Minster Theresa May downgraded the terror threat to “severe,” after raising it “critical” on Tuesday in the aftermath of the attacks.

Of this 'pool' of potential terrorists, 3,000 are suspected of posing an “imminent threat” and are being investigated accordingly, the Times reports. Meanwhile, the other 20,000 have been involved with past investigations and have been categorized as posing a “residual risk.”

Both suspected Manchester attacker Salman Abedi and Westminster killer Khalid Masood were in a pool of “former subjects of interest” and were no longer the subject of surveillance efforts, the Times reported. Abedi, a 23-year-old whose parents immigrated to the U.K. from Libya, killed 22 kids, in addition to himself, on Monday when he detonated a bomb just as attendees of a concert by American singer Ariana Grande were rushing for the exits following her performance.

The report comes amid intensifying criticism of the intelligence agencies, who have been accused of doing an inadequate job identifying former “subjects of interest” who have returned to extremism. 

The notion that there are 23,000 potential jihadis in the U.K. is “horrifying,” said Anthony Glees, head of security and intelligence at the University of Buckingham.

“We should double the size of MI5, as we did in World War II, and expand the number of intelligence-led police by the thousands.”

Meanwhile, thousands of soldiers will remain deployed on Britain’s streets through Monday, the Times reported.

We leave it to Nigel Farage to sum up a nation's concerns...

Goodbye freedom, welcome police state.

And why are they not being arrested and drop-shipped to the middle of the Sahara? 

What? Oh. I hear they can't drop ship them, because Heathrow and Gatwick are shut down with IT problems. 

Is this bullish for stock algos?

I'm sure more than 23000 people live off intelligence agencies in the UK

It's the (((Irish))) who are the masterminds of the whole Terrorism and Balkanization thing.

The return are just minions.

   But the Libtard socialist progressives have to let them in so they can keep track of them. Just about every attack that's taken place has been from someone who was on the LEO radar, but nothing was done to prevent said attacks.

How many Jihadists live in the USA, including the Ninth Circuit judges and the Fourth Circuit judges and the Seattle judge?

1. Bomb brown people in foreign countries.

2. Adopt a policy of open border immigration.

3. Tax citizens to pay for migrants' free shit.

4. Allow terrorist attacks to occur.

5. Increase police and military budgets while illegally spying on citizens - all as a pretext for supposedly stopping Step 4.

6. Go to Step 1 and repeat.


The perfect recipe for a growing and authoritarian state, where citizens are taxed, regulated, abused and made victims of insane state policies.

Brown people bomb brown people non stop...ya, US hegemony needs to end....but Muslim sand niggers are animals.

Kenny Drebson's picture

spot on.  i couldn't have said it better myself.


increased spending on migrants' free shit (as well as military budgets and police spying) stimulates the fake economy creating a greater need for more money printing (as well as a larger government and more agencies).  more money is printed, nation goes into greater debt, new money is distributed to the corporatocracy and more free shit for migrants while real wages remain stagnant for the indigenous population.

once historically white nations are sufficiently bastardized , the NWO will step in and propose a one world government... you know, for efficiency's sake, now that we're all so much alike.

Until one day the atacks escalate too high (out of control) and the public creates a revolution that cannot be contained.

Of course by then the country is in cultural ruin and we have a Hitler-like personality that manages to convince everyone to go to WW3.

Then its a good idea to watch where the political class wil travel to. That will be the country chosen to "avoid" the war, where they can be safe.


There is more to it thou, since the internet can prove to be very dangerous to those politicians.

Well, then again, if the 23,000 jihadis hadn't been let in to begn with, there would be no need for the "intelligence agencies" that "identify" them.

So now we NEED to have a surveilllance/police state.

But don't worry, it's for your own good.


U4 eee aaa's picture

They have to let them in or the 'intelligence' (I use that word very loosely) economy would crash

Instead of doubling the police force, just double the border patrol and close the border  to the flood of terrorists from the EU.

VWAndy's picture

 Yea. Lets see the list?

U4 eee aaa's picture

Great idea. Maybe wikileaks could get their hands on that and publish it. Then a few terrorfied British moms would take care of the rest since the government doesn't seem to have the backbone to protect the children of the land

 Ever hear the one about how the Nightstalker was caught? 

CheapBastard's picture

Their first move should be to close the borders.

didn't we already pass that tree?

Western Europe and Central Europe are barely part of same continent. Central Europeans will be demanding visas from westerners soon.

Send them all to Syria...

Syria, Iran and Russia will provide "courtesy service" of TOTAL ANNIHILATION in return for the dismantling of NATO (which the Western CBs can't afford anymore) anyway!

From the looks of it Syria will be getting back Raqqa and Deir-Ez-Zor shortly given the monumental "mop up" they've been enjoying since Cheeto-in-Chief pulled his last little stunt with the 59 gun "tommie salute" the Russian ADs neutralized...

Once Aleppo was lost by Tel Aviv, Washington, London and Riyadh the game was pretty much over in Syria!!!

Son of Captain Nemo's picture


Let that number sink in real good!!!

Because that means that since 9/11 and 7/05, the British government was aware of these numbers and did nothing about the "growing problem" all the while claiming they were "protecting" the British taxpayer with more militarization of EVERYTHING?!!!...

Looks like the days of the "one-eyed sheik" Al Masri are alive and well with visas being processed in and out of London and the Madrasas getting bigger not smaller by the minute!!!

Same as it ever was folks!...

When will the citizenry chop the only heads off that matter that have bankrupted their Countries going on 20 years???!!!

Catahoula's picture

Double that number and you're probably getting close.

easy if you count the terrorist enablers running government

"23,000 Jihadis Live In Britain"

Judging from what is now coming out from multiple sources, those could be considered British Gov't Reserves for special deployments. Or Jihadi Special Forces for Regime Change.

BitchesBetterRecognize's picture

Like many of the USA false flags, the one in Manchester stinks the same way. Apparently the suicide bomber was already know by UK intelligence, yet he was allowed to fly back to the country prior to the bombing, there is also a MI5,MI6 connection to the bomb carrier, etc.


IF the Government knows well all records of those 23k Jihadist- then what the fuck are they waiting for to arrest/deport them?  maybe, just maybe among those, there are "indispensable" personnel for the UK military & intelligence branch to dispose them....? 

Mena Arkansas's picture

No one could have predicted it.

But rest easy serf.

Your betters have deployed troops to protect themselves.

MPJones's picture

23,000 jihadis, 2.7 million potential jihadis - none of whom belong in Europe by any stretch of the imagination.

Incidentally, Muslims are not a race so opposing their vile political ideolopgy is not 'racist'. We must stand up against the libtards' constant perversion of the language to suit their political agenda.

WorkingClassMan's picture

I stand against any non-White, non-native European living in Europe long-term.  Europe is the White man's homeland.


It was okay to expel Whites from Asia and's right to expel non-Whites from Europe.  No mercy asked, non given.



bogbeagle's picture

Europe is known to have around 60 million Muslims.

MK13's picture

Sixty million. Shit, what tax agent are using? That's some well made up crap.

VWAndy's picture

 Post the list and watch how fast every one of them either gets out of town fast or gets locked up for their own saftey.

  I call Bullshit. They are not asking for the publics help to round them up.

WorkingClassMan's picture

Just remember, White people...


It's all worth it because of "diversity," and such...


EVERY one of these attacks could have been foiled before they even happened if your LEADER protected the interests of THE NATIVE PEOPLE.  Instead, your political whores sold you down the drain--like they have in the JewSA--and you're reaping the whirlwind for your White guilt and gullibility.


Your innate altruism has been turned against you by the jew, and he has morphed it into a sick sense of self-hate that NO OTHER RACE suffers from.  And with that, he's sicced his political whores on you to sell out your industry, racially displace you in your own lands, and is working feverishly to criminalize the very fact that you're WHITE. 


These terror attacks are the fault of YOUR POLITICAL WHORES.  These scum fund and support Sunni Wahhabi terrorists across the world--fomenting destruction in Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria and Lebanon and use YOUR TAX DOLLARS to support these Sunni Wahhabi scum in their efforts at killing their opponents--the Christians in the region and the noble, honorable Shia.


No way out but through the jew.

Double the size of MI5? No, just lock up or expel all the jihadi suspects. Simple really.

Intelligence sometimes isn't.

o)) Welcome to the Mushroom Growing Cave, Little Caps And Capettes ((0

This is where our overlord owners keep us in the dark and feed us all the shit we will consume. ...... Sometimes they do a little force-feeding when they think we aren't getting enough shit crammed down our throats on our own.

Shit does come in different flavors. ... Horse shit, bullshit and monkey shit being the most common. ... But you will also find snake shit and buffalo patties in you food bowl from time to time. ... And pig shit if you live in a Muslim country. ... Panda bear shit and Kangaroo shit is popular in Asia and donkey shit South of the border.

I have no idea WHAT that stupid shit is they are feeding the Brits and the Germans. .. They are on a whole new level of stupid reserved just for them these days.

In short, they feed people shit all over the world so we shouldn't feel like special little mushrooms in the USSA/


Maybe at least warm this shit up some.

Why are they here?


Europe's stupid open borders.


Tony "war criminal" Blair's subservience to US foreign policy re Iraq and Afghanistan and Merkel's stupid open borders


David Cameron's subservience to US foreign policy re Libya and Merkel's stupid open borders.


The majority of the British Civil Service and Government "advisors" who have their own agendas, which, most definitely, are seriously left wing, Socialist, Liberal or Green and NOT in the best interests of the majority of the tax paying schmucks who have to pay for their crappy idealism.

I bet you can find all of those islamic jihadists in the welfare programs.   They do nothing but leeching on the society and blaming others for their failures.

Stan522's picture

3,000 pose an imminent threat....

And this means they won't do anything until each blows themselves up, drives a fan into crowds of people, fires an automatic weapon (that the common folks can't get) at innocent bus loads of kids, or slices necks of Christians. That's what government does.....
