“I knew he lectured people on the Koran and there were always people dressed in robes coming in and out of his apartment. He was always nice, but yesterday he was an entirely different level of niceness.”
Perhaps he knew a major Ramadan jihad attack was afoot, and the thought of all those massacred Infidels cheered him. “Kill them wherever you find them,” says the Qur’an he used to lecture people about (cf. 2:191, 4:89, 9:5).
“Armed police arrest 12 at East London tower block in connection with terror attack that killed seven and injured nearly 50 as officers pore over scene at London Bridge and Borough Market for clues,” by Chris Pleasance, Stephanie Linning and Jake Wallis Simons, Mailonline, June 4, 2017:
Twelve people have been arrested in connection with the London Bridge terror attack as police carried out an early morning raid on an east London tower block.
Armed police stormed the Elizabeth Fry flats in Barking, east London, where one of the terrorists is believed to have lived in a ground-floor flat.
The complex was placed on lock down before several men were taken outside, where they were made to lie face down on the ground with their hands cuffed behind their backs.
Seven people were killed and 48 others injured when three men mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge and before they began ‘randomly stabbing’ victims in nearby Borough Market.
The three attackers, who were wearing fake suicide vests, shouted ‘this is for Allah’ as they used 12-inch hunting knives to attack unarmed revellers at busy bars and restaurants in the market, sending dozens of others fleeing for their lives. One of the suspects was wearing an Arsenal football shirt.
Speaking outside No 10 today, Theresa May confirmed the London Bridge atrocity, the third on British soil in as many months, is not directly connected to last month’s Manchester bombing or Westminster attack in April but that all three are linked by ‘the single evil ideology of Islamist extremism’. The terror threat level remains at ‘severe’, meaning another attack is ‘highly likely’.
Meanwhile forensic teams arrived at London Bridge and Borough Market to scour the area for clues as they try to identify the attackers.
A neighbour told Mail Online that he knew the man who lived at the address police are thought to have targeted.
He said: ‘I used to play table tennis with him in the lobby of the apartment.
‘I can’t believe it. He approached me yesterday and asked me where I hired a van recently. He said he needed one as he was going to move house.
‘He was acting strange yesterday. He was being nicer than normal.
‘He would always chat and was very friendly. Last week he invited me to a barbecue. He was always a very sociable person. It is such a shock.
‘I knew he lectured people on the Koran and there were always people dressed in robes coming in and out of his apartment. He was always nice, but yesterday he was an entirely different level of niceness.
‘He spoke with a British accent.’
Another neighbour named Jamal said the man who lived there was a father-of-one whose wife was pregnant, and aged in his twenties.
He told Mail Online: ‘He was always with children, they loved him. He had a good connection with children.
‘I always saw him with his child playing in the park. He played with other children too.’…
