UK police admit the Muslim they shot was not a terrorist

The British regime now admits that the Muslim boy shot by armed police at the weekend was not a terrorist.

The victim of Britain's latest "war on terror" shooting is lucky to be alive after receiving a gunshot wound to his upper body. He had been asleep in bed when agents of the British regime broke into his home at 46 Lansdown Road in London in the early hours of Friday morning. Jean Charles de Menezes, a Brazilian man shot seven times in the head and once in the body by the secret police as he walked through his local train station in London on his way to work, was not so lucky. Nobody knows who will be the next victim of this bizzare form of state-sponsored violence. A police official warned, "The public may have to get used to this sort of thing..." In other words, nobody is safe.

The huge problem of "terrorism" continues to dominate the news agenda every day as one of the foremost issues facing human civilization. But the news agenda does not reflect real life. The corporate media filters the daily "news" to emphasise topics aligned with war-time propaganda and the interests of an elite minority.

To put the "war on terror" in perspective, on average 0.00 people are killed by "terrorists" each week in the US and UK combined, compared with countless innocent civilians killed each week by Americans and Britons in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere around the world.

Meanwhile, conventional crimes, including murder and robbery that really do affect ordinary people every day in glorious America, are increasing. On average 400,000 Americans die from obesity every year, while at this precise moment in time there are 780,000,000 people starving to death in the world.


The Guardian, "Intelligence behind raid was wrong, officials say", 6 June 2006.
    Senior counter-terrorism officials now believe that the intelligence that led to the raid on a family house last Friday in a search for a chemical device about to be used to attack Britain was wrong, the Guardian has learned.
    Counter-terrorism officials were under pressure last night after days of meticulous search of the house in east London failed to produce anything to link the two men they arrested to a chemical plot. But a senior police officer said they had been left with "no choice" but to force entry into the house because there was specific intelligence of a threat to public safety.
    One official, with knowledge why police acted and what had been found from days of searching, said the intelligence had been acted on correctly, but added last night: "There is no viable device at that house. There is no device being constructed, or chemicals. There does not appear to be anything there or anywhere else."
    This was despite previous reports quoting police sources that suggested the informant was being handled by the security service, MI5. It was the police who passed the information from the informant to MI5 officers to assess it, the Guardian understands."
    [We are expected to believe that the police had "intelligence" which was "urgent" as well as "clear" and "specific", yet the police did not act or begin surveillance or arrest anybody, but instead passed the information on to MI5, who then assessed it. MI5 then spoke to the police, and this time the police acted "immediately". As usual the source of all the misinformation is cited by the mass media as an anonymous "intelligence" official who will never be called upon to answer questions let alone held to account.
