But instead of calling for an investigation of the teachings in mosques and a action (not just words) against jihad terror and Sharia supremacism from the Muslim community, the big media platforms are shutting down those who call attention to this problem. The powers in the world today clearly want more jihad terror, and less opposition to jihad terror. And that’s exactly what they’re going to get.
“‘They were all good boys’: Father of two of the Barcelona terrorists says they were radicalised by imam in Pyrenean town where they lives and went ‘a bit mad’ after Ramadan,” by Chris Pleasance, Nick Fagge and Gerard Couzens, Mailonline, August 20, 2017:
The father of two dead Spanish terrorists has insisted they were ‘good boys’ whose minds were poisoned by a radical imam.
Brahmim Aallaa, 50, is the father of 18-year-old Said Aallaa, who was shot dead by police during a car and knife attack in Cambrils, and Youssef Aallaa, 22, who is presumed killed by an explosion at a bomb-factory in the town of Alcanar.
Mr Aallaa, who is from Morocco, pointed the finger of blame for his sons’ fate at Abdelbaki Es Satty who preached for two years at the mosque in Ripoll, where 11 of the 12 attackers lived.
Speaking to The Times, he said: ‘The town’s imam might have influenced them.
Said Aallaa, 18, was shot dead in the attack on Cambrils while brother Youssef Aallaa, 22, is thought to have been killed in a bomb factory explosion in Alcanar. Their father Brahmim said they were ‘good boys’ who were radicalised by imam Abdelbaki Es Satty
‘They were all good boys, including my sons, but something has happened to them. All the [dead] boys have gone to a better place. It has been a great sadness for us.’
Es Satty, whose mosque has been raided by police, has connections to al-Qaieda and the bombers who carried out the 2004 Madrid train bombings.
Maria Alba Martinez, whose family employed Said Aallaa at their café, said families had become more hardline since Es Satty arrived.
The most noticeable change was in young women who started wearing hijabs, despite having never done so before.
Es Satty is thought to have died in the Alcanar explosion having masterminded the terror attack, though police are still carrying out DNA tests.
Mr Aallaa’s comments echo those by parents of other attackers.
The father of Moussa Oukabir, who also died in Cambrils, said his 17-year-old son lived a ‘normal’ life, attending school at playing football for the local club, until he suddenly became more religious.
He claims the same is true of his oldest son Driss Oukabir – who was aged ten when the family moved from Morocco to join their father in Spain and is still being questioned by anti-terrorist police.
Said Oukabir told Spanish media: ‘I can’t accept the fact that my sons are main suspects of a terrorist attack.
‘I never noticed any sing of radicalisation in their behaviours. They live just like other boys at their age.
‘Moussa was a nice boy. He never hurt anyone. He had been focused on their studies and was willing to pass the baccalaureate exam next year.
‘Recently however he started praying in a regular way. He never missed the time of his prayers.
‘But it was limited to praying, he did not go further. Moussa was young, and not mature yet. I think someone messed with his mind.’
Es Satty preached at a mosque in the south of the city, just a 15 minute walk from the apartment where suspected Barcelona van driver Younes Abouyaacoub lived….
Driss Oubakir, the brother of Moussa, was also arrested in Ripoll after his identity was apparently stolen in order to rent the van used in the attack….
Police believe the property was being used as a bomb-making factory to carry out a much larger atrocity before it was accidentally destroyed….
Neighbours of fugitive terrorist Younis Abouyaacoub have told of their shock that the smiling 22-year-old was involved with the horrific terrorist outrage.
Mohamed Bernadi, who lives in the same block of flats as Abouyaacoub, said: ‘These [Younis and other terrorists] boys were always good people.
‘It’s a real shame what has happened. The religion [Islam], like other religions, is of peace and merciful. These boys are not this.’
Mr Bernadi said the suspected terrorist lived with his parents, his four-year-old and ten-year-old brothers, and his sister who is around five years old.
Juan Gallego, 47, said: ‘I had no idea and he didn’t look like someone with this kind of ideology.
‘He dressed normally – a regular guy, sometimes they dressed up for their celebrations. I assumed they were religious.
‘I knew who he was but I didn’t know him personally. They have been living here for years.
‘He was a normal person. You wouldn’t suspect that he could do a thing like this.
‘Everything that’s happened, it’s surprising, it’s strange.
‘I mean, you don’t expect people like this to be in your own block, especially when they’re good people without a criminal record.’
Another neighbour added: They are like everyone here – totally normal people who are nice to everybody. It’s shocking.’…
