This by itself shows the wrongheadedness and futility of the British government’s response to jihad terror. They refuse to acknowledge the motivating ideology behind jihad terror, and so they don’t really know what makes a Muslim into an “extremist” in the first place. That their paid “anti-extremist” operative was sharing a house with an active “extremist” should give British authorities pause and lead them to reevaluate their program, but it probably won’t.
“Killer’s brother was PAID to fight extremism: Group that was given government funding to fight terrorism was set up at the London Bridge jihadi’s family home,” by Joseph Curtis, Mailonline, June 6, 2017 (thanks to the Geller Report):
The brother of the man behind the brutal massacre of seven people in the London Bridge terror attack had actually been paid by police to fight extremism, despite it going on within his own home.
Saad Butt, 29, brother of murderer Khuram, 27, was involved in the Government’s ‘Prevent’ programme set up to counter extremist groups.
His actions are a far cry from his younger brother, who led the three-man death squad who went on a bloodthirsty stabbing frenzy in Borough Market on Saturday night, injuring a further 48 people.
The news has prompted further questions as to how authorities missed Khuram’s bloodthirsty plans when they worked so closely with one of his blood relatives.
He was even being investigated by anti-terror forces in 2015 but was deemed a ‘low priority’ with police saying there was ‘no evidence he was planning an attack’.
Today Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has also backed those asking how the killer ‘slipped through the net’.
The brothers were born in Pakistan and came to the UK with their asylum seeker parents.
According to The Times, Saad even set up an anti-extremism group at the Butt family home in east London and successfully applied to join the Young Muslims Advisory Group (YMAG), passing security checks along the way.
The paper reported he was paid ‘under £10,000’ by the Association of Chief Police Officers to carry out research on ‘young Muslims’ dissatisfaction with police’, and registered a research company to the family’s address near Forest Gate….
