With the Summer Olympics only a few weeks away, Britain is a sitting duck for the deep well of Islamists already embedded into British society. While a few Muslim terrorists have been apprehended recently, there must be many more under the radar plotting multiple attacks. After all, Britain has become a hot bed of Islamists from around the world. These Olympics may well make the 1982 Munich terrorist attack a mere prelude to what is to come.

An Al Qaeda terror suspect was able to defy a court order to travel close to the Olympic Park area five times in one day.
The 24-year-old, who is under a control order not to enter the multimillion pound development in Stratford, East London, was arrested leading to fears he could have been carrying out a reconnaissance mission for an attack at the park.
The breach has raised concerns about security just weeks before the biggest sporting event in the world is due to start in London, as dangerous suspects are supposed to be monitored by the police.
The man, who is of Somali origin and known only as CF, appeared in court last month charged with five breaches of the order after he travelled across London on a train line which passes close to the Olympic development.
The terror suspect is believed to have tried to get to Afghanistan to fight for the Taliban against British troops.
He is also suspected of fighting for the Al Qaeda group al-Shabaab, responsible for thousands of deaths, including Western aid workers. Government officials claim CF attended a terrorist camp and fought alongside jihadists from al-Shabaab.
The Home Office says he is linked to a group of six British nationals who received terror training from Saleh Nabhan, the Al Qaeda leader killed in a raid by American Navy Seals in 2009.
According to court documents, the Home Office warned that CF wanted to ‘re-engage in terrorism-related activities, either in the UK or Somalia’ - and is ‘determined to continue to adhere to his Islamist extremist agenda’.
The alleged breaches, which took place in April and May this year, are the most serious security alert to hit the Olympic Park.
The disclosure comes after a week in which 14 terror-related arrests were made in Britain, including a white Muslim convert detained over an alleged plan to carry out a major terrorist attack.
A massive security operation has been put in place around the Olympic Park for the Games, which begin on July 27.
CF is one of nine suspected risks to national security who are subject to Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (Tpim) legal orders – which restrict movements, computer use and who they can meet.
