A British conservative lawmaker says the country is involved in “importing and exporting” terrorism.


In a recent interview with The Times of Israel, Robert Halfon said extremists are "indoctrinated in the UK" and then go "to Syria to fight."

He also referred to Briton’s fear from engaging in a war like the one against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, saying that the UK is so “scarred” by the Iraq war that it will not support use of force unless it is directly attacked.

According to estimates by British intelligence services, about 500 British militants are currently fighting in Syria.

In an interview with Argentina’s Clarin newspaper in May 2013, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said militants from 29 different countries were fighting against the government in different parts of the country.

A British defense study showed that about 100,000 militants, fragmented into 1,000 groups, are fighting in Syria against the government and people.

The extracts of the study by defense consultancy IHS Jane's were published on September 16, 2013.

IHS Jane's estimates that some 10,000 militants are fighting for groups affiliated with al-Qaeda and the rest fight for different militant groups.

The analysis also said that a large number of extremists from foreign countries are active in Syria.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

Over 130,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced due to the unrest.

The "English" have been involved in terrorism for centuries - just a quick look at history proves it. They commissioned piracy which was terrorism, they endorsed the slaughter of native populations in lands they sought as part of their "empire", the Amerindians and the Australian aboriginals were slaughtered in horrible ways such as poisoning water holes and giving them flour laced with strychnine - destroying their cultures with religious lies - look what they did in China - they flooded the country with opium in order to get their way. Terrorism is part of the English psyche - it flowed on into their conquests through the invaders they sent out to rape the world. add to their nature the evil of Zionism and we see an even more horrendous form evolve.
