Great Britain are on its 2nd highest terror alert. Â Because they fear the enemy within: Â their own Muslim citizens
Britain faces the “greatest and deepest” terror threat in the country’s history, Prime Minister David Cameron warned yesterday as he pledged emergency measures to tackle extremists.
The UK threat level was raised to “severe” – its second highest – meaning that a terrorist attack is “highly likely” in light of the growing danger from British jihadists returning from Iraq and Syria.
Cameron said the risk posed by Isis will last for “decades” and raised the prospect of an expanding terrorist nation “on the shores of the Mediterranean”.
He disclosed that Isis had made “specific” threats against the UK and did not rule out military action to tackle the growing problem.
More than 500 Britons are believed to have gone to Iraq and Syria and at least half have returned, with some feared to be planning attacks there. One major plot has been foiled.
The warning came as it emerged that a laptop seized from Isis in Syria contained research on how to make a biological bomb and religious justification for using it against civilians.
Tomorrow Cameron will unveil a number of “uncompromising” measures to help tackle British jihadists and fill the “gaps in our armoury”.
They will include stopping British fanatics from travelling to or returning from the war zones by making it easier to seize their passports.
He is also expected to tighten controls that can be put on the movement and activities of terror suspects within the UK.
