Theresa May Blames The INTERNET For Terrorism. Do You Agree With Her? Yes or No?

Despite all the research that shows that Terrorism precedes the internet and is even highly prevalent in war torn nations with no internet or modern communications infrastructure, Theresa May continues to blame the INTERNET for Terrorism.  But when you think of it, it’s like blaming the van that was driven into the crowds for terrorism.

You can’t blame the tool or equipment. You blame the person using the tool. You can’t blame the van that was driven into the crowds at London Bridge, you can’t blame the knives they used, you can’t blame the mobile phones they used to communicate. It’s the people(terrorists) and their support network that have to be blamed and held to account.

It’s true the state can police the internet and scan messages , emails, and phone calls but that should not be the main strategy in fighting terrorism.

Terrorism precedes the internet, we had the bombing of the PanAm Aircraft in Lockerbie in the 1980s way before Facebook, YouTube and Whatsapp, we had the terrorist attacks at the Munich Olympics in Germany decades ago, the World Trade Centre bombing by a truck bomb and then ultimately the bombing and total destruction of the Twin towers at the World Trade centre using aircraft hijacked and flown by Saudi pilots who were studying aviation and piloting at U.S Universities. In Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and other countries at the mercy of radicals, terrorism is pretty much prevalent whether they have the internet or not.. And they recruit massively.

Osama Bin Laden actually ran Alqaeda by avoiding the internet or any modern communication systems and that’s how he managed to evade capture and live pretty much in plain sight in Pakistan, just a few miles away from a military barracks. Without the internet, he grew Alqaeda and recruted hundreds of thousands of Jihadis.

Terrorism is a serious scourge that is deeply embedded in extremists’ minds and it’s an evil that should be uprooted once and for all. But blaming terrorism on the internet is living in denial.

The Manchester bomber was a British-Libyan terrorist whose British father and brother were allowed to travel and fight in a jihad in Libya against former Libyan leader Muammar Khadaffi. The bomber himself possibly fought in a jihadi in Libya as he travelled there frequently. There is probably hundreds of British jihadis currently fighting in syria, many of them commiting heinous crimes and the worst atrocities possibles. A terrorist named “John” spoke with a crisp London accent and appeared in many ISIL propaganda videos brutally decapitating people. Now, that is the real problem we have with home grown terrorists and that’s what we have to face and fight day and night. Making a good speech about the control of the internet wil not frighten the terrorists.

Do you support Theresa May on her claim that the Internet is the major cause of terrorism? Yes or No?

  1. So she first blames Jeremy Corbyn, now she’s blaming the internet. I think she need some to look closer to home, it was her who cut the police and security services, so I think she’s more responsible than anyone or thing else.

  2. I blame all the politicians who voted for the Kuwait and Iraq wars, which started the whole process. The Kuwait war resulted in Al-Qaeda being formed and the Iraq war started ISIS. The subsequent wars in Libya and the never ending war in Afghanistan has destabilised the Middle East allowing these organisations to flourish.

  3. She doesn’t care who or what she blames, as long as she can try to deflect blame from herself and her party.

  4. Theresa May has for years claimed that The Human Rights Act limits the power of government. That is why she wants it abolished. Her plans to restrict, to censor, the internet in the UK will make no difference to the terrorist threat whatsoever. This is not about controlling terrorism. It’s about controlling YOU.

  5. Why do western governments also characterize terrorists are hating our values and life-style? The answer is blowing in the bombs we drop on people they have ties with. We are relentlessly at war with people they consider their kith and kin and desperately want to do something to pay us back.
    You cannot stop social media or new ways of progamming communication on the internet.
    Mrs May talks utter, meaningless platitudes and blames everything except herself, her government’s foreign policy and its subservience to the American right-wing.

  6. Theresa may blames everyone and everything except herself,after all she was Hoe Secretary and could do no wrong,partly because she did nothing at all in answer to the question NO.

  7. Theresa May blames everybody and everything apart from herself as Home Sectetary she could do no wrong ,partly because she did nothing at all bit that’s by the by on answer to the question NO

  8. No, not at all . Successive govts have fanned the flames of terrorism, by selling weapons to the Saudis, playing gungho mateys with the US , who in turn have used the excuse of terrorism to go pillage any country that has OIL !!! Let us remember that there are far more terrorist attacks carried out in the US by WHITE extremists. Mad Mayhem would love to use this spurious connection , between terrorism and the ‘net to carry forward her goal of becoming dictator of the UK , because she is an incompetent bully !

  9. Talk about grasping at straws. The internet is just a means of communication. The foreign policies adopted by Western governments over the past 25 years, causing devastation and ruin to so many ordinary people in the Middle East must be accepted as the cause if the issue is going to be genuinely addressed.

  10. This is a woman and a party that want freedom of speech undermined to its very core. They want to know what each person in this country is doing 24 hours a day to implement a Marshall law like control even in our homes. This is just a rubbish idea. If people want to communicate as they did with blackberry messenger previously to this then they will find a way. Getting rid of the rights of everyone to pretend this is to control the few is despicable. So it’s a BIG NO from me.

    • am laughing here cos as an elderly person even i have no idea what im doing or going to do from one minute to next. what makes her think she can?lol…a resounding big noooooooo. shes bonkers

  12. No of course it’s not. Ms May is clutching at straws and in the process using the recent attacks as an excuse to invade our privacy.

  13. The internet was not around when this country sowed the seeds of terrorism in 1095.. That’s when the latin church decided that Islamic rule in Palestine should go and sent soldiers to kill and maim. So it has been for a thousand years. For 1,000 years we have stuck our nose into other countries business and then we are amazed when someone protests by attacking us. Tell you what, Mrs Fucking Useless May, why don’t we put the blame where it lies for a change. Squarely on our shoulders. I say OUR shoulders because we LET our Government do these things and then moan about it afterwards and we have the stupidity to vote the Tories in knowing that they are the worst.

  15. No.Terrorism is the response to the violence inflicted on countries in the middle east by Britain and the United States.Mrs May knows that very well. She doesn’t like the internet because it allows information to be available to everyone.

  16. This is the tories way of censorship and keeping records of us all unlawfully.

    I would believe it if they had found away to infiltrate the dark web. This has nothing to do with terrorism, more to do with making us average folk dumb and predictable.

  17. The Internet terrifies the Tories because they cannot control it and it is an alternative source of information that threatens their domination of the media and the minds of the electorate. The real blame for terrorism has to be placed at the feet of all MPs pf all colours who voted for the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, because this is where it all started from, and for those who voted to attack Libya and Syria. These are the people who should be blamed, and should hang their heads in shame. And it should be noted that Jeremy is NOT among them, as he has consistently voted against all these aggressions.

  18. May and her Conservative friends say our foreign policy has nothing to do with the increase in terrorism, making statements like that goes against all common sense, imagine a second generation UK child of any middle eastern country continuously seeing the way the US and their poodle the UK destroys their parents homeland, or even had relatives killed by the West’s so called smart bombs, they may not all become radicalised but enough of them will. Theresa May and her government will take us down the path of increased terror make no mistake.

  19. NO this woman is trying to put forward what the rich in America want a 2 tier internet that is run on a premium. The internet in its existence can not be regulated these people would use the dark web anyway and it would be the general law abiding public that foots the bill and gets poor service while the rich get richer as a result. What we need is feet on the ground both police armed police and military we need military bases of some sort in every major city and large town we need police in the community and we need people to open up with there community.

  20. NO! I blame the Tory government who sell the arms to Saudi Arabia, which then go to ISIS, a group set up by the CIA for the purpose of destabilising countries/regimes. The UK has supported this for years, and has been involved in wars and the bombing of civilians worldwide. Are they really surprised when there are repercussions ? I have every sympathy for all of the victims of this warmongering policy, it is the innocents who suffer for the evil deeds of their leaders in the interest of making more money!

  21. Terrorism has been around long before the internet. You can try and control it as much as you like, they will either write their own apps, or use another way of communicating. Starve them of money and publicity. Stop people buying ISIS oil, stop countries funding them and supplying arms

  22. of course not. The wars we helped the USA wage and killings of innocent men women and children plus selling arms to Syria may be part of the reasons but the internet is not.

  23. No, I blame the UK for bowing down to the USA and help them attack all n sundry and then they are astonished that their terrorism is retaliated by terrorism, lets stop being the USAs lackeys, pull our troops out of other countries and use our troops to protect the UK in the UK, blaming the internet is a ruse to stop people sharing the truthª
