This is war. All-out war. Yet British and American authorities — and authorities all over the West — remain in denial, treating every jihad attack as if it were a discrete anomaly. They keep trying to pretend that there is no war, while the war keeps coming at them.
“Islamic State video shows murder of five ‘British spies,'” by Martin Evans, Telegraph, January 3, 2016:
Intelligence agencies were hunting a new ‘Jihadi John’ after an Islamic extremist with a British accent murdered five men accused of spying for the UK.
In a video released on social media the masked gunman warned David Cameron that the West could never win in the war against Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil), while mocking the impact of RAF airstrikes.
In a further chilling twist, a young boy aged around four, and appearing to speak with a British accent, also appeared on screen, threatening to kill non-Muslims.
The victims were all shot in the head at point blank range after the well-spoken British sounding terrorist delivered his propaganda rant.
The sickening ten and a half minute video had echoes of those posted by the Isil terrorist dubbed Jihadi John, who was responsible for a string of murders including the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning.
Jihadi John, who was later identified as 27-year-old Mohamed Emwazi from London, was killed in a US drone strike last November.
MI5 agents were urgently working to establish the identity of the new terrorist, amid concern that the video might signal the start of a new Isil propaganda campaign, which comes in the wake of the Britain’s decision to join coalition airstrikes against Isil targets in Syria.
A source in the Foreign Office said the propaganda video had likely been released to “divert attention away from Isil’s recent military failures in Iraq and its inability to look after the citizens in the areas it controls”.
As well as speaking with a London sounding accent, the terrorist made reference to the soldiers working being paid the minimum wage, further betraying his UK roots.
The video began with apparent confessions from the five Arabic men who were wearing orange prisoner style jumpsuits.
One of the men claimed to have passed information to the West about prominent Isil figures who were subsequently targeted by the coalition, including the group’s deputy leader Abu Muslim al-Turkmani, who was killed in a US drone strike last August.

The video then cut to a desert landscape where the victims were shown kneeling before five gunmen clad in camouflage clothing and black Isil masks.
Addressing his rant to Mr Cameron directly, the terrorist described him as a “slave of the White House” and “mule of the Jews”.
Clutching a semi-automatic pistol he mocked Mr Cameron, describing him as an “imbecile” for thinking RAF airstrikes could have any impact.
He said: “How strange it is that we find ourselves today hearing an insignificant leader like you challenge the might of the Islamic State.
“How strange it is that a leader of a small island threatens us with a handful of planes. One would have thought you would have learned the lessons of your pathetic master in Washington and his failed campaign against the Islamic State.
“But it seems that you just like your predecessors, Blair and Brown are just as arrogant and foolish.
“In fact David, you are more of an imbecile. Only an imbecile would dare to wage war against a land where the law of Allah reigns supreme and where the people live under the justice and security of Sharia. Only an imbecile would dare to anger a people who love death the way you love your life.”
Then turning to a wider audience, the terrorist warned that one day Britain would be invaded with everyone forced to live under strict Sharia law.
He said: “All British government. All people of Britain, know that today your citizenship is under out feet and that the Islamic State, our country, is here to stay and we will continue to wage jihad, break borders and one day invade your land, when you will be ruled by Sharia.
“But those of you who wish to continue fighting under the banner of Cameron on the minimum wage, we say to you to ask yourself, do you really think your government will care about you when you come into our hands?
“Or will they abandon you as they have abandoned these spies and those who came before them, because you will lose this war as you lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“But this time when you lose your children will inherit your defeat and remember you as the fools who thought you could defeat the Islamic State.”
After then shouting Allahu Akbar, Arabic for God is great, he then opened fire on the victim at his feet shooting him in the back of the head.
The man slumped forward before the other gunmen all opened fire on their victims in a sickening killing spree.
After a brief montage featuring Isil slogans and music, the video cut to another desert landscape, where a young boy, thought to be aged around four addresses the camera.
Wearing a camouflage top and a black Isil headband the youngster appeared to speak with a British accent as he pointed to the distance and said: “We will kill the kuffar (non-believers) over there” as he points to the distance.”…
