    IS still threatens Europe, warns MI5 chief.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 14 May 2018, 12:13 pm

    The head of MI5 has warned that Islamic State aspires to commit "devastating" and "more complex" attacks in Europe after losing territory in the Middle East.

    Andrew Parker told European security chiefs in Berlin the group required international focus "for years".

    He revealed 12 terror attacks have been stopped in the UK since the Westminster attack in 2017.

    He condemned Russia for the "reckless" poisoning of the Skripals in Salisbury.

    Mr Parker warned the threat posed by IS, which he referred to as Daesh, would persist, driven by its "murderous ideology".

    While it is good that our security forces have stopped so many more attacks at home we have to keep up the levels of this fight to protect the British citizens from such terror attacks.

    We should know that as IS lose more and more territory in the Middle East their attention is bound to turn to the more cowardly attacks against soft targets in Britain.

    We all need to keep our eyes open to the signs in our own neighbourhoods so that we may give the security services any help that we can.

    Comments please.

    Got to agree with that Idea Paps.

    We have more eyes and ears able to watch out for anything that is a bit dodgy.

    I say tell the cops and let them sort it out.

    Yes Zathrus, now that their Califate has been reduced to just a few small pockets, they are almost certainly going to be planning more terrorist attacks on the free west.

    We should not be alarmed about this, but we should keep vigilant as we go about our daily lives.

    This is the one reason I think that more cops should be armed, as a truncheon is no weapon to use against terrorists with bombs and bullets.

    The main problem I see here is that these cowardly terrorists only attack weak targets.

    Sadly, of that statement, you are right.

    Terrorists usually attack targets that have no defence.

    It is up to us to inform the police of anything we know about along these lines.
