United Kingdom – Al-Shabaab are attempting to target Muslims in the UK through a video tape released recently. They are calling for Muslims in the UK to kill British citizens even if it means going to local hardware stores and buying knives in order to carryout lone wolf terrorist attacks similar to that where the soldier Lee Rigby was killed. There have also been credible threats made against leading Muslim figures in the UK who have been warned that they are a target by the police. Although al-Qaeda has encouraged Muslims in all countries to conduct lone wolf attacks this is a new tactic by any terrorist group which has called for Muslims in a particular country to attack those inside its boundaries. Although the Muslim community of the UK have said that this is not Islam and have no desire to carry out any attacks there are bound to be one percent that may take up the call.
