"Sooner or later", he said, "there will be an Islamic terrorist attack in Britain. And when it comes the terrorists will turn out to be either asylum seekers or second generation Pakistanis, probably from somewhere like Bradford."
Griffin then added:
"I made that prediction at a private BNP meeting in the Reservoir Tavern in Keighley on the 19th of January, 2004, 18 months before the multiple Islamic suicide bombings which police last night admitted were carried out by second generation Pakistanis from Leeds and Dewsbury. By now, every newspaper and TV and radio station in the country will have reported these facts.What do you think? Was Nick Griffin right to warn the British people of what he believed certain sections of the Muslim population had in mind? Or do you think the powers-that-be were right to seek to imprison him for daring to issue such a warning?
So, 18 months on, it emerges that I was nine miles out, and that, by not predicting that the terrorists would be suicide bombers, I under-estimated their fanaticism.
But as a piece of prophesy it was surely better than your average Whittakers Almanac, and streets ahead of anything from any other modern British politician, with the honourable exception of Enoch Powell...
The crucial question, however, is whether I should face seven years in prison for making that prediction? For that is the situation in which I find myself.
Next Thursday, 21st July, I must answer bail at Leeds Crown Court on charges of using words intended or, having regards to all the circumstances, likely, to incite racial hatred.
One of the key points in the opening case summary that the prosecution supplied to Leeds Magistrates Court earlier this year was the claim that, by making the prediction at the start of this article, I either intended to incite, or was likely to incite, racial hatred."
For those of you who think the establishment was right, you must answer this question as well: how would you explain your reasoning to those whose loved ones died on 7 July 2005?
On 10 November 2006, at Leeds Crown Court, Nicholas John Griffin was found not guilty on all counts.
All four suicide-bombers were first or second-generation immigrants.
In the immediate aftermath of the 7/7 bombings Tony Blair said this:
"We condemn utterly these barbaric attacks. Those responsible have no respect for human life. We are united in our front to defeat terrorism which is not an attack on one nation but on all nations and on civilization as we know it. We will not allow this to stop the work of this summit. We will continue our deliberations in search of a better world.Blair, with, presumably, the encouragement of Ian Blair, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, gave the go-ahead for the national threat level in the UK to belowered from 'severe, general' to 'substantial' just before the bombers struck.
The perpetrators of this attack are intent on destroying human life. The terrorists will not succeed. Today's bombings will not weaken in any way our resolve to defeat those who would impose their fanaticism and extremism on all of us. We shall prevail and they shall not. I will send my people to hunt those down who plan suicide bombings"
Hasina Khan, who was pregnant with his second child at the time of the bombing, is a teacher. Khan, himself, had been a teaching assistant at Hillside Primary School in Leeds since 2002. This despite the fact that he was known to be a petty thief.
During its last Ofsted inspection in 2002, the school's learning assistants had been singled out for special praise.
Sarah Balfour, the wife of New Labour MP, John Trickett, is the head teacher at Hillside Primary and was, presumably, responsible for offering him employment at the school.
It is known that, not only had Khan heard the militant Imam, Abu Hamza, preach at the Finsbury Park mosque, he had also lived in the mosque for a time.
In 2004, Khan had been the subject of an MI5 'threat assessment.' Officers decided that he posed no threat at that time and no action was taken. Interestingly, the writer and terrorism expert, Charles Shoebridge, a graduate of the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurstand a former Metropolitan Police detective with 12 years experience,told BBC's Newshour that he was reasonably certain that Khan must have been actively working for British intelligence:
"Either we've got a level of incompetence that would be unusual even for the security services," he said, "but possibly, and this IS a possibility, this man Khan may even have been working as an informant for the security service. It is difficult otherwise to see how it can be that they've so covered his tracks in the interim."Mohammad Sidique Khan killed himself and six other passengers on a circle line train in the Edgware Road bombing.
Around this time, he was sent to Pakistan to visit relatives. He also went on the Haj pilgrimage to Mecca, grew a beard and began to wear robes. However, despite becoming devoutly religious, he was arrested for shoplifting in 2004.
His family described him as 'a loving and normal young man who gave us no concern.'
On 7 July 2005, he boarded the no. 30, double-decker bus in central London and slaughtered himself and 13 others.
His father owns a fish and chip shop in Leeds, one of more than 90,000 high street businesses now owned and run by Asians in Britain. His uncle, Bashir Ahmed, 65, said:
"His parents were loving and supportive. He was a very kind and calm person. He was respected by everyone."He also said:
"He was proud to be British".In 2004, Tanweer was arrested for disorderly conduct and cautioned. In 2005, he went to an Islamic study camp in Pakistan. It is known that, not only had he heard the militant Imam, Abu Hamza, preach at the Finsbury Park mosque, he had also lived in the mosque for a time.
Shehzad Tanweer detonated a bomb on a Circle Line train between Aldgate and Liverpool Street stations which killed six people and injured over 100 more.
A statement issued by his relatives said Lindsay 'had a kind, caring and calming presence about him. He was a good and loving husband and a brilliant father.'
Lindsay got married to a middle-class, university drop-out called Samantha Lewthwaite, ('The White Widow' is one of the world's most wanted terrorism suspects) in October 2002, after meeting on the internet. After her conversion to Islam, Ms Lewthwaite had been keen to find a Muslim husband and was 'delighted' when she met Lindsay at a Stop the War march in Hyde Park. In an interview with The Sun, Ms Lewthwaite said:
"He was an innocent, naive and simple man... He got involved in mosques in London and Luton and became a changed person... He was always a peaceful man who loved people... He was so angry when he saw Muslim civilians being killed on the streets of Iraq, Bosnia, Palestine and Israel... He kissed our child goodbye and then crept off to blow up King’s Cross...She said that, because of her husband’s 'love of people,' she could not believe what he did and added:
All good Muslims have to fight against evil."
"He was a loving husband and father... He would never have killed himself and left me alone to bring up our children."Aah, isn't that nice. Thing is, Samantha dear, whether he realised that he was going to blow himself up or not, what cannot be denied is that your 'loving husband and father' was quite prepared to leave a great many other wives to bring up their children alone, wasn't he? He was happy to leave a great many other children fatherless, wasn't he?
Why would you think, when you said what you said, that the fact that he might not have wanted to leave you alone to bring up his kids, would make the rest of us think he was an angel? I know! You're a moron!
It is known that Lindsay had heard the militant Imam, Abu Hamza, preach at the Finsbury Park mosque.
Lindsay murdered 26 people in the Kings Cross bombing and injured hundreds more.
On 8 August 2005, The Huddersfield Daily Examiner reported thus:
"Former addict Juliet Davidson has revealed how she used to buy heroin and crack cocaine from teenage bomber Jermaine Lindsay in Dalton. The single mother - who has been free from drugs for three years - said she was shocked to discover her former dealer was at the centre of the London terrorist attacks. Lindsay was the terrorist who carried a bomb on to a Tube train at Kings Cross on July 7, killing 26 people. Juliet said:'He thought all white people were trash and said he was going to get them all on drugs to kill them off.' Is there anyone out there who thinks Lindsay is the only immigrant in particular and non-white person in general who ever entertained such a thought in recent times? When Tony Blair used to say we need another 200,000 legal immigrants entering our country every year, he was well aware that some of them would be thinking thoughts like this before and after they got here.
'I was absolutely gobsmacked. I could have understood him attacking someone, but not a bomb. I never thought he would have killed himself like that.'
Juliet, 26, first met Lindsay - known to her as G - five years ago outside a row of shops in Harp Inge, Dalton. He was just 14 at the time and a student at Rawthorpe High School. She said:
'He used to hang around and when I was going there to score one day he asked me to get my drugs off him. I used to get heroin and crack cocaine off him every day for about two years. I saw him change a lot in the last year I was scoring. When I saw him wearing his Islam outfit I thought what's he up to? He was always going on about racism. He thought all white people were trash and said he was going to get them all on drugs to kill them off. I don't think he was into anything more himself than a bit of cannabis.'
Juliet, formerly of Rawthorpe, said Lindsay also became more aggressive as time went on. She said: 'He started getting arrogant and snapping at anything. He once badly beat up someone I knew for just a fiver. He looked down his nose at everybody. I can't understand why people are saying he was a nice person. He wasn't'."
When the happy-clappy PC people insist how beneficial immigration is for all of us dinosaur Brits, they have to be well aware that many of the immigrants they promote and encourage will, once they got here, turn upon those who gave them sanctuary.
Why didn't such knowledge give Blair and the PC crowd pause for thought? Because they are at war with us, ladies and gentlemen. When the 'white trash' get 'killed off' by the drugs or suicide bombs of a Jermaine Lindsay, they are winning that war.

Perhaps they heard Hamza state the following and took it to heart:
"You don't have to travel thousands and thousands of miles to become a shaheed. (Martyr/witness)You can be shaheed right on your own doorstep. May Allah open our eyes for what's good for us, so we don't waste our Muslim blood far away."
