2 ARRESTED IN LONDON OVER TERROR CONCERN

2 ARRESTED IN LONDON OVER TERROR
 
 CONCERN



London police have detained, on Tuesday 06/28/2012, two British Muslim converts on suspicion of terror offenses, a UK. security official told The Associated Press. It wasn't clear whether the arrests were related to the upcoming Olympic Games. Security is tight ahead of the London games, which begin on July 27 (see - Londonstan).

Scotland Yard identified the men as an 18-year-old and a 32-year-old, but didn't give their names. The force said in a statement the pair was arrested early Thursday at separate addresses in east London. A man who identified himself as a friend of the detainees identified the 18-year-old as Jamal ud-Din (pic), and said the older man was someone he knew only as "Zakariya" (see also - London Taleban).

Mizanur Rahman, 29, from East London, said the arrests "might have had something to do with the fact that they recently went canoeing" on the River Lee, a branch of which runs through the Olympic site in east London. He said the pair also recently went shooting with an air rifle in Essex, a largely suburban and rural county east of London. Rahman said he saw nothing amiss with the activities. "It's just people trying to get into the Olympic spirit," he said, adding that he believed authorities would try "painting it as jihad training."

Rahman pointed the AP to what he said was a photograph of ud-Din. The picture showed a stocky, pale-faced man with a bushy red beard and it appeared to match a man who appeared last year in a Youtube video entitled "The Test of Allah by Jamal ud Deen."

The speaker on the video, who Rahman confirmed was indeed Jamal ud-Din, expresses contempt for democracy and non-Muslims, admiration for Islamist firebrands including jailed Egyptian preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri, and anger at the Danish Muhammad Cartoons which infamously caricatured Muhammad -- whom Muslims revere as a prophet.

At one point the speaker approvingly quotes someone he refers to only as "the sheikh." "We're not like the Christians; if you slap us on the left cheek, we'll slap you back," he tells an unseen audience. "This is so true, brother. We're Muslims. We defend ourselves, brother." Security services across Europe have long been alert to the activities of extremist Muslim converts.

Sources told The Daily Telegraph that the arrests were based on a tip-off after the men were seen behaving suspiciously close to the venue in Waltham Abbey, Hertfordshire on Monday.

This week European security officials told the AP that they were tracking a Norwegian Muslim convert,  who goes under the Islamic nam Muslin Abdurrahman and had gone to Yemen for training and had since become "operational."

Intelligence officials say there has been an expected increase in chatter among extremist groups, but there are still no specific or credible threats targeting the Olympics. The terror level is labeled substantial, a notch below severe.
