In the past three years since the London bombings that killed 56 people British police has foiled 15 plots to attack targets in the UK.

This is one of several disturbingĀ findings in a new report by Europol, the European police force.

Welcome to Londonistan.

Britain has emerged as the focal point of Islamist terror in Europe. According to the report last year the UK reported a 30 per cent increase in arrest of terror suspects. Out of 203 persons arrested in 2007 in the UK, a majority was related to Islamist terrorism. In the rest of Europe 201 were detained, 91 of them in France.

The number of suspects under investigation in the UK has risen from 500 in 2004 to 2.000 last year.

What are we to make of this?

Is the threat growing or is the police getting better at seeking out suspects?
