Let's connect the dots on the recent Islamic terror busts in the UK and USA. The terror arrests made the other day in the UK and Wednesday in NY are linked to the Al-Muhajiroun. Al-Muhajiroun members move on up to al-Qaeda. Al-Muhajiroun is the mouthpiece, the propaganda voice for Al Qaeda. And many Al-Muhajiroun members have become Al Qaeda operatives. And it was the motley remains of al Mujahiroun who protested in London today.

There are distinct similarties is style.

TORONTO: The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) have stolen Norwegian passports and sold them to the al-Qaeda organisation to earn money, Norwegians Against Terrorism Organisation chief spokesman Falk Rovik said.
And from the Sunday Times: Possible links between LTTE and al-Qaeda;
For the second year running a prestigious international institute has highlighted possible links between the LTTE and al-Qaeda, the terrorist organisation allegedly responsible for the 9/11 attacks on the United States and other bombings.
The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), the London-based think tank has referred to links between the two organisations both of which are banned as terrorist organisations in several countries.
In its latest issue of the Military Balance 2007 which analyses important world developments and the military hardware of state and non-state actors, IISS however talks of possible commercial links between the LTTE and al-Qaeda and makes no reference to any military connections between them.
IISS was the first international think-tank to publicly announce LTTE’s acquisition of air power. Three years ago the IISS in its Military Balance reported that the LTTE had acquired light aircraft and helicopters.
“It is possible that the LTTE is using its merchant ships to help transport weapons from al-Qaeda to its cells or support groups in other countries,” one analyst told The Sunday Times.
UPDATE: Keith in India (a country fighting the jihad) adds, "don't forget to mention that the LTTE terror group also murdered the Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1991. India too has suffered from the scourge of these killers."
