Regjeringen burde vurdere å chartre fly til Syria for fanatikere som vil slutte seg til IS, sier den tidligere anti-terrorismepolitisjefen fra Scotland Yard, Bob Quick. -Det vil være tryggere hvis ekstremistene forlot landet, ble nektet å komme tilbake og fikk sine britiske pass inndratt, hevder Bob Quick.

“You have to think how do you confront it, if you have hundreds or thousands who want to go there and live that life? We should try and convince them not to go. If they want to go, you have to ask the question, are we better off, if they surrender their passports and go? It’s better than them festering away here.

“Should we say we’ll lay on charter flights to Syria; turn up with your passport and if you are over 18, if this is the life you want, then go?”

Flere enn 700 jihadister antas å ha reist fra Storbritannia til Den islamske stat.

Quick sa at den ekstreme islamismen ikke var kompatibel med britiske verdier og at trusselbildet har forandret seg de siste ti årene fra al-Qaidas store terroraksjoner til terrorangrep fra individuelle jihadister.

Assistant commissioner Mark Rowley, the current counter-terrorism chief at Scotland Yard, said Isis was trying to recruit non-Muslims: “It has an impact on other communities. They are looking for misfits and criminals from all sorts of backgrounds, not simply from Muslim communities.

“We are dealing with an organisation that uses marketing, uses the internet and is trying to create a corrupt violent cult that is going to act in its name.”

Bob Quick måtte trekke seg i 2009 etter at han uforvarende viste frem hemmelige dokumenter på vei inn til Downing Street.

Britisk etterretning innrømmer selv at de ikke har nok å stille opp med for å forhindre terroraksjoner.

In a rare statement marking the anniversary, Andrew Parker, director general of MI5, Britain’s domestic security service, said: “We had always known – and said publicly – we simply can’t find and stop every terrorist plot. We could not have prevented 7/7.”
