As usual, as always, at least one of the London terrorists was previously known to authorities:
One of the three jihadists who murdered revellers in central London on Saturday had been reported to the anti-terror police on at least two occasions, it has been claimed.
A former friend of the terrorist, who was shot dead by police along with two accomplices, claimed he had been radicalised while watching YouTube videos and said he contacted the authorities after becoming concerned over his friend’s extremist views.
A neighbour also claimed she had contacted police in Barking, east London, after the suspect tried to convert her children to Islam and radicalise them. The man is not being named at the request of the police.
Every. Single. Time. Think about that. There’s another attack coming soon, maybe by the end of the week. The police, MI5, MI6, or someone knows who’s behind that too – before it happens. Will I. Am and Ariana Grande left that thought out of their “we won’t be divided” fundraiser vigil.
Are these guys always just to be a reactionary force? Niklas Halle’n/AFP/The Telegraph.
And, Mrs. May, it’s not the YouTube. One can learn just about anything on-line. It’s the mindset of a certain brand of people. Ban the later, not the former.
This blurb also explains away the idiots’ Islamist apologies and excuses expressed by comparing them to the IRA. The IRA did not, the New IRA does not, seek to convert and radicalise anyone. Theirs was (is) a struggle for independence in their own land. They want to be left alone by the Crown. The Jihadis want to invade and conquer a place where they don’t belong. The equivocating helps them.
The IRA was (is) geo-political. It has nothing to do with “Catholic vs. Protestant” anymore than the American Uncivil War had to do with “Church of Christ vs. Episcopalian.” ISIS is geo-religious. That’s why, wherever they are, they commit their evils in the name of Allah.
The IRA operated in some form or fashion for about 100 years. The Islamists have been active in the UK for about 15. That’s why the IRA has a higher death count (in the UK) – and ISIS is catching up at warp speed. And ISIS/al Qaeda/et al is an international movement; their global numbers dwarf the IRA’s, to approach even state actor levels.
Diversity-mongers, please quit with the excuses and write-offs.
And please stop the denials and the “shock” when these things happen. “We don’t know if the truck driver was Muslim. White-Hispanic? Not even sure it’s terror related.” BS. The police know. They even have names and files.
