Download Hour1 Download Hour2If asked to imagine a terrorist, do you see a mental picture of an Islamic suicide bomber? This episode we examine how the appearance - and quite possibly also the reality - of Islamic terrorism is cultivated by the UK deep state establishment. A wide variety of voices on this episode centered around the events of July 7th, 2005 explore David Miller's claim that the UK government uses the self-styled 'mainstream media' to promote Islamophobia through the security services.
As examples we examine two short reports from the commercially-controlled media. First, 45 seconds of a BBC TV report from the day of the London Bombings. Already by the evening of July 7th, 2005, Tony Blair had concluded that "we know that these people act in the name of Islam". Second, a brief report on the arrest of suspects in London a couple of days ago.
Our next piece is an EDGE Media discussion between Tony Farrell, Ian Puddick and host Brian Gerrish on the privatization of law enforcement and its increasing lack of transparency to the public it is supposed to serve. Ian Puddick tells how the police spent over £1 million to censor his website, PoliceExpenses.co.uk and used the counter-terrorism directorate to raid his home and offices. Apparently his FOIA requests into how much money was spent on this operation were denied on grounds of expense, while the documents produced in his court case proved that the proceedings brought against him were directed by the US private security company, Kroll, using the UK police force to pursue a private agenda. Former intelligence analyst Farrell reports how he was dismissed after suggesting that there was an appreciable terrorist threat from elements inside the establishment.
|...the people in the United Kingdom by and large have not woken up to the level of deceit and the corruption in high places.|
— Former 'Principal Intelligence Analyst’ for South Yorkshire Police, Tony Farrell
