It was said that after the Manchester bombing, another terrorist attack in the UK would be imminent. And here we are, two weeks later, reaping the results of the newest attack on Western society by a radial Islamic extremist. With the refugee crisis out of hand, and the Muslim mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, saying that “there is no reason to be alarmed”, we are now asking where is anyone’s common sense?
Leftists say there is no reason to blame refugees when terrorist attacks happen because they aren’t the ones involved… WRONG. One of two London Bridge attackers, Khuram Shazad Butt, came to the UK as a refugee from Pakistan with his parents when he was just a young child. Now the 27 year old may have drawn inspiration from the Manchester bomber, Salman Ramadan Abedi, who just so happened to be the son of refugees from Libya.
Upon finding out more information about Khuram Shazad Butt, we now know that he lived as an extremist for the majority of his life. He can be seen in a Channel 4 documentary called The Jihadis Next Door, where he is featured waving an Islamist flag and praying with many other Muslim men in a park. This documentary fully showed that the Islamic views of these men in the UK were in line with the views of ISIS. On another note, he has also been described as “sexist” and “sinister” due to his opinions on women, especially in the UK.
Right now, it is estimated that there are about 3,000 jihadi Muslims living freely in the UK, that share the same beliefs as the London Bridge terrorist. Because Britain so far will not arrest them or deport them, it now leads us to fear when the next attack might take place. Will Mayor Khan still not be alarmed when it’s normalized? Or what about when it happens to someone closer to him?
