All four are understood to be Asians living in London and are feared to have links both with Islamic extremists in Britain and worldwide terror groups - including al-Qaeda training camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Again, for some reason the media insist on referring to Islamic terrorist supporters based on their race rather than religion. Perhaps that is how the security services describe them to the media, as simply Asians, which is slightly worrying.
I wonder how many Islamic radicals could easily slip through the net in to Scotland Yard. One does wonder how the interview & vetting process is at Scotland Yard.
Poor Bastard Marvin has an exclusive transcript of a conversation between one of the Islamic radicals and Dave Plod, also working for that elite detective agency, Scotland Yard.
Ahamed Jihaaad: So, Christian, what do you think of the war on Iraq?
Dave Plod: Umm, it was a bad thing???
Ahamed Jihaaad: Yes Christian. Allah, willing death will be upon the infidels. Allom shallacom.
Dave Plod: I totally respect your viewpoint. We just have to be careful we don't get Al-Qaeda spies working for us! But I can safely say none here! We'd spot something like that miles off!
Ahamed Jihaaad: Ahem [goes a bit red]. Al-Qeada!! ... Christian! Oh Allah does not support death of innocents! Shallom allah walla com.
Dave Plod: Oh jolly good!! Well go luck to you old chap, that's what I say! Please don't report me for racialism!
