There was yet another Muslim attack thwarted in Great Britain this week. It is at epidemic proportions, but the enemedia (especially in the States) are ignoring the 800 lb. jihadi in the room.
Seven muslims were arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences in Britain after weapons were found in a vehicle stopped on a motorway, police said on Friday, as security forces are on high alert ahead of the London Olympics.
Fortune smiled upon us when the vehicle was pulled over in a routine stop on the M1 motorway in South Yorkshire, northern England, on Saturday and impounded on suspicion of the driver having no insurance.
Firearms, other weapons and other unspecified material were later found inside which prompted police to trace and arrest the driver, passenger and other suspects.
"As soon as the items were discovered in the impounded vehicle, our priority was to protect the public by pursuing and arresting those we believed to be involved," said Detective Chief Superintendent Kenny Bell, Head of the West Midlands region's Counter Terrorism Unit.
Indeed, at least this article didn't obsess over the color of the would-be killers' skins. The British media make a big deal of "white" Muslims. It's not race, tools, it's belief systems. It's the ideology.
My favorite bit of cluelessness is was this, "there is nothing to suggest that two sets of arrests are linked to each other." Uh, it's all jihad, geniuses.
"Seven more terror arrests as police find 'weapons hidden in car' just a day after Olympic round-up that saw white Muslim convert captured" Daily Mail July 6, 2012 (thanks to David)
- One man from West Yorkshire and six from West Midlands are detained
- Arrests followed 'routine stop' of a vehicle on M1 last Saturday
- Car was impounded on suspicion of having no insurance
- 'Firearms, offensive weapons and other material' found hidden inside
- News of arrests comes day after six people, including white Muslim convert, were detained over alleged plan to carry out a major terrorist attack
Seven men have been arrested on suspicion of terror offences after firearms and other weapons were found 'hidden' in a car.
One man from West Yorkshire and six from the West Midlands are being questioned on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism following a series of arrests this week, police said today.
News of the arrests comes a day after six people, including a white Muslim convert, were detained over an alleged plan to carry out a major terrorist attack, possibly during the Olympics.
Police insist the 13 arrests in the last two days do not involve threats to the Games, set to begin in three weeks, and that there is nothing to suggest that two sets of arrests are linked to each other.
But the counter-terror sweeps - and a false alarm yesterday that involved a bus filled with passengers - have raised anxiety in the run-up to the games.
Arrested: One of British Muslim convert Richard Dart's jihad accomplices spent two years working for the Met Police. He was one of six people detained by police across London yesterday

A West Midlands police spokesman said that officers found material including firearms following a routine stop on the M1 in South Yorkshire last weekend.
He said: 'The arrests followed a routine stop of a vehicle by police between J33 and 34 on the southbound side of theM1 motorway in South Yorkshire on Saturday. The car was impounded on suspicion of having no insurance.
'Firearms, offensive weapons and other material were later found hidden inside, prompting police to take action to trace and arrest the driver, passenger and others suspected of being involved.
There were two firearms recovered. They are not automatic. They were not loaded and there was also a small amount of ammunition.'
Police said three men aged 23, 26 and 27 from Sparkhill, Birmingham, were arrested on Tuesday morning.
Three more suspects, a 22-year-old from Alum Rock, Birmingham, a 24-year-old from the Moseley area of the city, and a 22-year-old from Smethwick, West Midlands, were arrested on Wednesday evening.
A 43-year old man from Kirklees, West Yorkshire, was detained yesterday in Ravensthorpe, Dewsbury.
Detective Chief Superintendent Kenny Bell, head of the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit, said: 'As soon as the items were discovered in the impounded vehicle, our priority was to protect the public by pursuing and arresting those we believed to be involved.'
Police said the contents of the car were undergoing forensic analysis and the suspects' homes had been searched.Detectives have been given extra time to question the three men arrested on Tuesday, after the initial 48-hour detention period ran out. They now have until next Tuesday morning to charge or release the men, or apply for a further warrant.
All seven men are being held in the West Midlands.
