Manchester bombers family also linked to terror networks and MI6
Introduction — May 25, 2017
The links between Manchester suicide bomber and British intelligence are becoming more and more obvious.
However the following Guardian report reads like disinformation contrived by British Intelligence in order to minimise those links. Readers will note how it subtly shifts focus onto Salman Abedi, the Manchester bomber, and “criminal gangs” in the city.
At the same time it omits to mention that Salman Abedi’s father, Ramadan had originally been an officer in Colonel Gaddafi’s intelligence. Even more significantly, it also omits to mention that Ramadan had been recruited by MI6 in 1991 in an attempt to overthrow Gaddafi.
When that failed Ramadan and his family fled to Saudi Arabia from where they were granted asylum in the UK, in part one assumes because of Ramadan’s cooperation with MI6 in the failed attempt to oust Gaddafi.
Later Ramadan returned to Libya where he has been linked to the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which was fighting to oust Gaddafi. According to former British intelligence officer David Shayler and two French intelligence experts, the LIFG was covertly backed by MI6.
Ramadan’s sons, Salman and his brother Hashem, have also been linked to the LIFG which may explain why they made frequent trips to Libya.
Crucially, they were allowed in and out of the North African trouble spot and back into Britain with no questions asked by customs or security. Why? Had they been given clearance by MI6?
Ramadan Abedi and his sons are not alone in this. Many other Libyan nationals are reporting a virtual “open door” policy between Britain and Libya.
Why? Given the fact that the Western backed ousting of Gaddafi has turned the oil rich North African nation into a haven for terrorists you would think that the authorities would be a little more careful. So why are Libyan exiles reporting a virtual “open door” policy between Britain and Libya?
That question is all the more pressing given that many of those being given a free pass are involved in the conflict there. So why are they being given seemingly preferential treatment?
Just as the Western elite turned a rich and stable North African nation into strife-torn breeding ground for terror, they now trying to import the same into Europe, either as migrants or activists like Salman Abdi and his family. Ed.

The Manchester Arena bomber, Salman Abedi, had close connections with criminal gangs as well as known and suspected terrorists in the city, it has emerged.
Abedi, 22, associated with a gang that has for years waged war with a rival grouping in south Manchester, the Guardian has learned after speaking to members of the local community.
He is said to have been deeply upset when one of his close friends became embroiled in an alleged gangland feud – and some friends have suggested that this trauma could have added to his sense of disillusionment and anger.
Meanwhile, details of how Abedi travelled back to the UK from Libya, where his parents live, before the bombing have been revealed. He returned via Turkey and Germany, prompting authorities there to examine his previous visits.
In an interview, Abedi’s father said he did not believe that his son could have carried out the attack and said he had told him he was going to Mecca.
While condemning the bombing, he criticised the British authorities for the way they had forced their way into his former home and suggested that security forces were unfairly targeting the Libyan community in Manchester.
In south Manchester, community leaders have become increasingly worried that young men of Libyan heritage are being drawn into gang warfare in south Manchester.
In February, the Manchester Evening News reported rising tensions between a notorious south Manchester gang and members of another gang made up largely of people of Libyan and Somali heritage.
In 2015, Ayub Mabrouk, the son of a Libyan diplomat, was jailed for hiding guns and ammunition for gangsters in Hulme, south Manchester.
One community leader, who asked not to be named, told the Guardian: “There is a growing gang culture among young Libyans. It is a huge worry in the community.”
He said that many of the Libyan gang members – like other inner-city gangsters – grew up with distant or missing fathers: “Abedi is like that. His father left for Libya when he was around 17. He’s had five years without strong paternal guidance.”
A family friend, Ahmed Boshaala, said Abedi could have been affected by the gangland trouble his friend was involved in.
