Since 9/11, the scale of the threat that we face has increased significantly – this means that there can be no guarantees. The figure of 2,000 terrorist targets that the Head of MI5 referred to publicly in his speech is not scaremongering. It is a frightening figure that some have suggested cannot be right. We would suggest that there are a great deal more people out there who pose a threat to the UK, beyond those known to MI5.
2,000 potential threats
Adult Muslim population of the UK is 1,2million.
1.2million/2000 = 600
So 1/600 Muslims in the UK is a terorist. (at the very least)
On a given Friday afternoon in White Chapel there are statistically at least 5potential terrorists roaming the streets.
