I'll overlook that this BarthsNotes guy doesn't know how to spell "Roland Barthes".
He actually seems to be picking up and highlighting the infiltration techniques of the Muslim Brotherhood National Association of Muslim Police. (One wonders why that organisation's name does not end with "Officers"; is it because they seem themselves as the early days of a muslim "morality police", as seen in Iran, Gaza, Kuwait, etc.?)

From the Independent, 31 July 2011:
Britain’s National Association of Muslim Police (Namp) will deliver a letter to Theresa May, the Home Secretary, stating that its officers have been targeted by radicalised members of the EDL. It details an unresolved investigation of an unidentified man arrested last year with “quantities of fireworks/devices” alongside names of Muslim police officers circled on whiteboards for attacks.
Thanks to a Freedom of Information request, I now have a copy of the letter. Here’s the relevant section:
Last year the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) arrested a man who was actively gathering intelligence/information on serving Muslim Officers including myself and other senior NAMP executive members. According to MPS he was in possession of a quantity of fireworks/Devices, neither NAMP nor any of other persons targeted have or were ever made aware of the full extent of this enquiry e.g. explosives and other enquiries to date. The police also found partial addresses and surveillance videos on his computer, this would suggest that he was undertaking reconnaissance activities. At the time were told that the man arrested was a lone wolf and not linked to any organisations. It took us just a few minutes of basic internet research to establish that this individual has links with the EDL and has attended EDL rallies and meetings, which we brought to the attention of MPS. He was released with any bail conditions and no risk assessment was carried out. This individuals is still of concern to us and we are not aware whether he is still subject to any ongoing intelligence work by SO15 or whether he has been referred to the National Domestic Extremism Unit for intelligence purposes or de radicalisation programme.
The investigation by Specialist Operations (SO) was very poor and dismissive of our concerns… It took the intervention of ACPO officers to inject a degree of seriousness into the investigation. However, sadly the investigation did not lead to charges being brought forward… MPS advised us that a file was sent to Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and they have advised no further action be taken. Earlier this year we had the opportunity to meet senior officials from CPS, we were extremely upset and disheartened to learn that they have no recollection of giving MPS advice on this particular case.
Despite the Independent‘s description, the detail of the “whiteboards” is not mentioned.
The letter was passed to James Brokenshire MP, Parliamentary Undersecretary for Crime and Security. His reply includes a direct quote by way of response from the Metropolitan Police:
The MPS is extremely disappointed with the inaccurate assertions made in Mr Ahmad’s letter, including issues around the quality and conduct of the investigation and the lack of referral to the CPS. However we do understand that the concerns raised by Mr Ahmad need to be addressed. A senior officer from the Counter Terrorism Command has already been in touch with him and a meeting has been arranged for September, during which we will address the allegations and hopefully provide him with the necessary assurances.
There’s not anything else in the public domain out there, although on-line thug Charlie Flowers has claimed on his abusive Twitter feed that NAMP was “making it all up”.
Back in October, the Guardian noted that prosecutions were sometimes “mysteriously dropped” when police spies were involved.
This (would be) Roland Barthes guy seems to be implying that the "radicalized EDL member" is actually a police officer/snitch. If that is the case, then it would seem that he was being used as an agent provocateur within EDL (or associated organisations); the police on their own, or in connivance with the state, to encourage people in EDL to "bomb" (with a few sparklers), the homes of some muslim police officers. (Unless of course, we are to interpret this poorly-drafted complaint as saying the provocateur had real explosives, not a few sparklers).
Let's compare the scale of this complaint with a few incidents from our gloriously enriched capital city. When one of my neighbours complained about the shockingly indifferent and dangerous driving of some muslims, the next night her neighbours window had a bullet fly through it. Apparently realising that their reconnaissance was as bad as their driving, the muslim gang returned the following night and fire-bombed my neighbour's house (with her and her child inside). Did the story reach even the local media? Not to my knowledge. Or let's compare the whining of the NAMP - as we know, the koran induces muslims to suffer simultaneously from supremacism & paranoia - with the Met's leafletting the area within 1 sq mile of East London Mosque, begging people to come forward with information about a suspected, massive, islamic fertilizer bomb. The ordinary people of London seem to have far more to worry about in the area of being targeted by high explosives, than the namby-pamby NAMP.
That there's nothing else "in the public domain" about the NAMP's claims would suggest that this could be another example of the media keeping silent in their role as an organ of the state (i.e. the media think that entrapping EDL is of more propaganda value than yet more muslim whining).
And the point about The Independent larding the NAMP's claims would also tally with Nick Cohen's book "What's Left", where he argues that "the Indy" long ago gave up any idea of journalism, and is simply a propaganda rag. NB: it was The "Independent" that uncritically carried the shoddy report by Prof. Copsey, which report enabled The "Independent" to claim that EDL were "white extremists" (despite the existence of prominent jews and sikhs mentioned in the same article by The "Independent"). And who paid the honest Professor his shilling? Why, "Faith Matters", a front for islamic dawah. And who heads up Faith Matters? None other than Fiyaz Mughal OBE, the man exposed for his cover-up activities whenever the extremism of islam gets publicity in Britain.
I'm far from being "a grammar nazi" but you would think that the NAMP would be able to elect an official who could construct a coherent letter. And you would think that if this issue was so important (involving muslim griping against EDL, the Met, SO, and the CPS were not taking their potential assassination seriously), that NAMP could have made sure that their assertions were actually coherent.
