Terrorist Attacks

Terrorist Attacks The funeral of British drummer Lee Rigby, brutally murdered by Islamists in London on May 22, 2013

The murder of the British soldier Lee Rigby by two Islam fundamentalists on May 22nd (see above) definitely falls under the category of a terrorist attack. Apart from that, by September 2013 the police have made 257 arrests on alleged terrorism charges, which is 13 arrests less than were made over the same period last year. However, only in 48 cases the suspicions were confirmed and followed by actual investigations.

Interestingly, this year a whole new series of criminal cases against neo-Nazis, that were planning attacks on Muslims and their religious institutions, took place, which, undoubtedly, is connected to Lee Rigby’s murder.

Specifically, in October a 17-year-old EDL supporter, who planned to bomb mosques, appeared in court. He had procured the components necessary to create an explosive device and was caught during the process of assembling the bomb. This teenager from Loughborough was clearly under the influence of Nazi ideas – police officers have found a huge swastika painted on his bedroom wall. The charges were filed not only against him, but also against two accomplices, who were teenagers as well.

In 2014, the trial over the 41-year-old man from Birkenhead had begun. He was accused of terrorism in 2013. He also was preparing to blow up several mosques and Islamic community centres, for which he had assembled several homemade explosive devices.

There was a number of terrorist attacks in Northern Ireland. In January, a gang of vandals threw rocks at homes of Polish families in Belfast. 7 such attacks occurred in a week.

On January 28, 2014, nationalists set fire to cars belonging to Slovakian and Polish families. On March 8, two Romanian families' homes in the County Derry were attacked with nail bomb. On March 16, a Polish family living in a Loyalist area on the outskirts of Belfast have had to flee their home after several men attacked the families' house with a petrol bomb . In March, hooligans shattered the windows of a Polish family home in Belfast and blew up their car.
