NWOBJ again

I've noted before the technical incompetence of the New Wave Of British JihadLaban Tall 2007).

The New Wave Of British Jihad is IMHO very poor quality compared with its illustrious predecessors. If the "Fantastic Four" were alive today they'd be turning in their graves.

I'd been wondering for a long time why science education was being dumbed down so much, to seeming government indifference.

The fact that these guys can't put anything that makes a bang together is a tribute to our education system. I understand now that Blair and Brown have been playing the long game - ensuring that anyone who hates them won't have the skills to do anything about it.

If those guys had gone to a decent privately run educational establishment - say a madrassa in Waziristan - they'd have been far more successful in their chosen career.
Now we see an engineering graduate of University College London who can't detonate military grade explosive. As Ross puts it :

The fact that an engineering alumnus from one of Britain's most prestigious universities can't even detonate an explosive is a damning indictment of our education system. It was one thing when an ex con retard like Richard Reid couldn't light up his shoes but this is absurd.


No wonder employers are increasingly critical of the quality of UK graduates.

If one checks out average IQ for Arabs and sub-Saharan Africans, then one shouldnt be surprised at all.

Still we 'need' them here apparently.

If whites or Japanese get seriously interest in jihad, then watch out.

Averages are not terribly relevant here. He must have had a reasonable IQ to be studying at UCL.

The Japanese pioneered suicide bombing in WW2. I don't know if there are any earlier examples. I suppose the Assassins (who would usually be killed when they carried out their murders) might be early prototypes.

Not really. Their deaths weren't guaranteed by their very means of assassination, were they?

Funny this, because Alistair Darling is saying in the Graun today that the university system is "world class"

Similarly of course we have "world class" primary and secondary education.

It was reported that a class mate of the 21/7 "Emir", when interviewed, had remarked that Ibrahim was absolutely cretinous at GCSE chemistry, offered in the world class comp he attended.. Couldn't understand proportions - fractions a closed book - so couldn't get mixture right. Result a dribble of soggy chappati flour on the tube carriage floor, distinctly unvibrant

Stroke of luck really.

Maybe there's method in the regime's madness, though I don't find the Somali influx particularly enriching myself; world class doesn't come into it

Yet you yourself pointed out his ineptitutde.

With our *ahem* world class education system who is to say what criteria (if any) UCL are really applying.

"He must have had a reasonable IQ to be studying at UCL"

His dad probably paid the full fees in which case I wouldn't be surprised if UCL proved "flexible" in their entrance requirements. Mind you, three "A"s at A level is probably sufficient to get a place at UCL for a UK "scholar" so the entrance requirements aren't exactly onerous.

A photograph of his underwear was displayed on Fox News and was scortched almost beyond recognition. Bad stuff.

I used to be quite proud of my two 'B's at A level. That today would be worthless, though if I took them exactly the same way again I suspect they would be turn out to A* and bar today.

I'm with Umbongo on this one. As the Americans say "money talks and bullshit walks"

As someone who has worked within a British university for the last twenty two years all I can say is that there is not always an obvious link between a persons outwardly displayed intelligence and their chance of being accepted for a course of study as a student.

Overseas students who pay with fat wads of real money, and 'home grown ethics' who seem to get by with lower standards, due to political correctness (especially after New Labour's rise to power in the mid 90's), seem particularly welcome.

I remember reading a review of The Bell Curve in Scientific American (1995?) and thinking could this possibly be true...

...meet enough students and you know, generally, the answer is in all probability yes.

It's rather alarming that institutions of higher education, in this country, are so dependent on mediocre foreign students for their survival.

I was reading John Burns in the NYT when this fact jumped out:

nearly 100,000 of the 500,000 students are Muslims

Can this be true, that Muslims account for 2.5% of the population but 20% of students? What the hell is going on?
