I recently posted "After Manchester," to discuss what happens after that horrible attack. Who knew what followed would be this most recent London attack? Rhetorical question, I know. We don't know much about the actual attackers; police will release names etc when it is "operationally possible." But there are some disturbing details leaking out.
- One attacker had twice been referred to terror police
- They had done nothing about it.
- He was radicalized by an American Hate preacher Ahmad Musa Jibril from Dearborn Michigan over YouTube
- He had tried to convert local children
Of course, there is still the same old silliness that comes from politicians being unable or unwilling to name the real enemy. “It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth,” she said. “Defeating this ideology is one of the great challenges of our time. But it cannot be defeated through military intervention alone.”
So, I suspect these posts of mine may become a regular feature...After (insert name of British city most recently attacked.)
