‘Paris terror suspects long on London’s watch list’

Were the Charlie Hebdo patsies run by intelligence agencies?

The two brothers accused of the recent slaughter in the French capital have reportedly been on a British watch list for years.

British sources say the Kouachi brothers were on a UK terror watch list for four years. Police and the security services are investigating whether they or their cell have links to Britain, the Guardian reported.

Cherif, 32, and Said Kouachi, 34, had been identified as a potential terror threat and placed on a British watch and no-fly list. They had been on UK and US databases as terror suspects prior to the attack.

Now Kevin Barrett, a Veterans Today editor, says: “The British government has a long history of working with radical Salafi and Wahhabi figures, which it protects and manipulates in order to achieve its political objectives.”

“The British are very much involved in manufacturing the so-called clash of civilizations that is essentially Western war on Islam,” Barrett said in a Sunday interview with Press TV’s UK Desk.

He also referred to the government complicity in spreading Islamophobia and pointed out: “The British have the best of all Western intelligence services in terms of having experience in manipulating the Islamic world. So they use radical Salafi figures in their various plots and of course the larger plot that is structuring the entire historical period that we are living in, is this plot of the war on terror and the clash of civilizations, the strategy of tension between Muslims and the West. So, that is what they have been trying to promote through all sorts of acts of false flag terrorism.”

The US journalist and ex-professor added: “The British intelligence services are not trying to protect anyone from terrorism; their real task is to keep the clash of civilization going. So, it is not a surprise then that well-known radical Salafi Jihadists like the suspects in the Charlie Hebdo’s attack are being actually protected by Western intelligence services.”

The Kouachi brothers were reportedly killed after French police stormed a print works warehouse in Dammartin-en-Goele near Paris, where the two suspects in the Charlie Hebdo magazine shootings were holding at least one hostage.

    Did anyone pay attention to the leg movements of the “terrorist” when he got back to the car and tried to drag the shoe out to where he could reach it ? TOTALLY unnatural ! Just after this watch closely how many times the left hand door appears and disappears(vanishes) before they get under way . Replay it a few times , you will see what I mean , it is OBVIOUS the film is spliced at this point , it proves beyond doubt the scene was shot twice and spliced at that point !

    Sounds like they were patsies, this info is because they want you to think that they were terrorists, I might be wrong but it’s a hunch, also they were trying push the Yemen connection, leading us on a wild goose chase, perhaps fearing, that someone might figure out the Syrian ISIL connection which leads to mossad.

    ‘Reportedly killed’ … 2 Franco-Algerian Muslims likely killed before the Charlie Hebdo massacre took place … We are told 2 masked professional-type shooters at Charlie Hebdo ‘accidentally’ drive getaway car to Jewish kosher deli ‘Patistory’, fave Paris hang-out of Israelis & Mossad … where shooters find 2nd getaway car and ‘accidentally’ left Kouachi ID card … ID card of a dead man

    While French Prime Minister Manuel Valls with Jewish wife Anne Gravoin, sponsor & protect Mossad ops in France, Valls swearing ‘eternal’ loyalty to Zionism & Israel, Valls denouncing any anti-Zionist (even Jewish) as anti-Semite … under Valls, French police official is quickly ‘suicided’ before even having a chance to get depressed about op cover-up …
