London 7/7 bomber's Wife Training for an Attack in London!

Interesting Article: "July 7 bomber's widow 'on the run' over links with terrorist cell" by The Telegraph / London published Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

An interesting article mentioned that Samantha Lewthwaite, the widow of one of the July 7 bombers, Jermaine Lindsay, is thought to be on the run accused of links with a terrorist cell planning bomb attacks in Kenya. Police in Kenya have issued an arrest warrant for a woman using the name Natalie Faye Webb, and carrying a forged South African passport. But investigators say the woman has three separate identities and one is that of Samantha Lewthwaite, who was married to Jermaine Lindsay, one of the 7/7 bombers. Would you like to know more?


Lindsay killed 26 people when he blew himself up on the Piccadilly Line between King’s Cross and Russell Square in July 2005. Lewthwaite, from Aylesbury, Bucks, who converted to Islam at the age of 15 and married Lindsay in 2002, is said to be travelling with her three children. She is suspected of having links to a terrorist cell planning an attack in Kenya after their troops crossed the border to fight al-Shabaab, an al-Qaeda-linked group in Somalia. The militant group al-Shabaab, which is currently engaged in a guerrilla war against Kenyan security forces in Somalia and has links to al-Qaeda, is believed to be behind the cell. Up to 40 Britons are fighting with al-Shabaab.

Kenyan police claimed to be closing in on the woman at that stage but she has so far evaded capture. According to sources, she entered the country to meet with other terror suspects in Mombasa using a South African passport under the name of Natalie Faye Webb, aged 26. Police are also hunting for a man called Habib Ghani, from Hounslow, West London, who left Britain several years ago to live in Africa. They are said to be connected to Jermaine Grant, 29, a Muslim convert of Jamaican origin from Newham, East London, who has appeared in court in Kenya on charges of possessing explosives and preparing an attack.

He was arrested in the coastal town of Mombasa in December, in an apartment where police also found bomb-making chemicals, batteries and an electric switch.

Officials from the U.S have started working with the Kenyan authorities to find the members of a suspected terror plot over fears of escalating violence in nearby Somalia. She is thought to be a key player in a terrorist cell involving two other Britons that was planning attacks on upmarket hotels and restaurants in Nairobi which were popular with tourists. It was reported that she subsequently escaped a raid by Kenyan police. Authorities believe she fled with a bag containing bundles of US banknotes, 500 fuses use in igniting explosives and a laptop.

Dozens of Britons have travelled to Somalia in the last two years to join al-Shabaab, a militant group allied to al-Qaeda that has taken over vast swathes of the country. Most travel through Kenya on their way to joining up with fighters from the group, which boasts an English-language Twitter account and a well-oiled publicity machine. There are concerns that extremists could return to launch attacks in Britain. An Interpol alert had been issued to prevent Miss Lewthwaite travelling back to Britain but Kenyan police believe she has already fled across the border into the lawless areas of Somalia.

ISIS Update this September 11th Anniversary.

Interesting Article: " ISIS launched more than 100 attacks in Iraq in August, a sharp uptick from previous month " by Hollie McKay. Fox News. September 3 2020.  An interesting article mentioned that fears of an ISIS resurgence are becoming more pronounced. The remnants of ISIS in Iraq claimed 100 attacks across the embattled country over the past month alone, according to an assessment by the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium (TRAC) released on Thursday – marking a 25% uptick from July. The increase in assaults signals a worrying trend that ISIS is steadily re-emerging – via an array of sleeper cells – which is a cause for both regional and global concern, despite being territorially defeated in Iraq just over three years ago. Similarly, in neighboring Syria, which was once the hub of the self-styled ISIS “caliphate” until an official defeat was announced in March last year, clusters of jihadi loyalists continue to launch deadly and brazen assaults.
