  David Haines  the British aid worker has become the latest person to be executed by ISIS. This  has been promised to be followed by the execution of another hostage who has been named as Mr Henning.

Hains had served in the Royal Air Force for 12 years and leaves two children behind. He had worked as a Aid worker in some of most troubled areas in the world including Libya,Sudan.

The proclaimed aim of this act is to stop USA bombing of ISIS positions which have slowed the groups advance in Iraq.

ISIS regularly treats it brutality as a PR opportunity in it campaign of terror .

 

Libya’s new strong man
General Khalifa Haftar will become a familiar name in the headlines regarding Libya.
His colourfully history as coup maker and one time military chief with Gaddafi who he later helped depose and his increasingly forceful involvements with Libyan politics since then defines him as a maverick who knows how to survive.
There are some facets of the general that will guarantee him support from some corners and fanatical opposition from others. He belong to the dwindling rank of Arab secularist with a track record of opposing militant religious groups. Paradoxically he is Arab nationalist who was released as a prisoner of war from Chad due to a CIA inspired agreement he subsequently moved to America and became a citizen. They are allegation of being trained by the CIA and being close associate of that organisation.
It is understood that many officer and men from the old Libyan forces disillusioned with the rise of Islamic militancy and Jihadi control of many militia have joined the General’s rank of supporters. American response to the murder of their ambassador John Christopher Stevens in 2012 in the hand of Islamic militia in Bengasi after an attack on their consulate has taken many forms including support for General Khalifa Haftar and enlisting the help of their regional ally Egypt .The recent attack on the airport in the Libyan capital by unknown military aircrafts is laid at his door and his friends in Egyptian military .
Though Sudan is also a suspect due to its support of some of the militant Islamic militia.
There are brewing issues between western allies with Europeans favouring working with the recognised central government though it is a government largely in name only and the Americans who would favour an Egyptian style solution even though some critical factors are missing for that to take shape.
The inescapable fact is that Libya is a dysfunctional state not far from Europe. It has become a hot bed of militant Jihad with vast stores of modern arms and natural resources that will further fuel militants activity within the region and further a field. Libya is by far the greatest security threat to Europe in the African region .
Flight Formation

Flight Formation

For those of you interested in pageantry of an aviation type NATO has announced the flight formation  on 5th Sep for the summit in Wales.

We are at the beginning a campaign that will pitch the security services against a large citizen minority that sympathise with the Jihadi and militant Islamic movement overseas and who peculiarly are able to enjoy the freedoms offered by their places of birth to assist movements who are at odds with those very freedoms.

There  are many questions raised as to the cause of growing radicalisations. No doubt the over reactions and ill-judged persecution of the Muslim community in reactions to terrorist attack in New York, Spain and London had a part in this matter. One must also factor in the reluctance of the first two waves of immigrants from places such Pakistan to integrate to the main society. The politicisation of Islamic sentiments and nurturing of its radical elements by the very agencies who are now tasked to oppose during the Russian invasion of Afghanistan have added fuel to a volatile geopolitical environment since the Iraqi invasion .

The relaxed and almost naive attitude that allowed certain sects within Islam to come to dominate the tone and delivery of Islamic teaching in mosques across the country must be seen as the main contributor to this issue. These elements benefitted from substantial financial backing and logistical support from countries such as Saudi Arabia and smaller Gulf states.

The Metropolitan Police have asked the public for information to help them identify persons travelling overseas to join organisations such ISIS. During this appeal they have revealed that all security agencies have witnessed the doubling of number of people travelling overseas either to join or take cash to groups such as ISIS and others involved with armed conflicts in middle east .

This public appeal is based on the fact that many people encountered by the security forces have no previous history and therefore are invisible to the systems in place but may be known to private citizens.

It has yet to be seen whether the Islamic community will respond positively to this appeal but one thing is clear the appeal itself underscores a key weakness in the battle against this dire problem that of lack insight, positive interaction with the community and trust.
