And anyone who doubted his sincerity would have been denounced as a racist, bigoted “Islamophobe.”
“When he’s not working he goes to pray at one of the local mosques.”
Which one? What does it teach? Is it being investigated? Does anyone in Britain know? Does anyone in Britain care?
“Police seize two Parsons Green bomb suspects at ‘halfway house for asylum seekers’ after arrest of ‘smiling’ Iraqi takes total number detained to five,” by Tom Bedford, Paddy Dinham and Richard Spillett, MailOnline, September 20, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Police have arrested three more men in connection with the Parsons Green tube bombing after raiding a building said to be a ‘halfway house’ for asylum seekers.
A 25-year-old man, who neighbours say is an Iraqi Kurd, was detained in Newport in connection with the terror attack last night. Witnesses said he was smiling as he was taken away.
Anti-terror police then carried out an early-morning raid on another house in the city and detained two more men, aged 48 and 30.
Locals say the second of two properties raided is run by the Home Office as a ‘halfway house’ for asylum seekers. The Home Office declined to comment.
The first who men arrested, 21-year-old Syrian refugee Yahya Faroukh and an 18-year-old believed to be from Iraq, remain in police custody.
Officers from the Met’s Counter Terror squad swooped on the man just after 7pm this evening, with assistance from local forces.
Witnesses to the arrest described officers ‘jumping’ a man who was put into a police car and driven away.
Neighbours of the first man arrested said he was a very religious and came from the Kurdistan region of Iraq.
Local butcher Abid Ali said: ‘When he’s not working he goes to prey [sic] at one of the local mosques. He was born in Iraq and is proud of being a Kurd.’
Describing the arrest, nearby resident Sully Ali, 19, said: ‘A big van pulled up and six officers got out and jumped this guy.
‘There were two armed officers there, they didn’t have their guns pointed at him but they had them on show.
‘The guy was smiling. I didn’t hear him saying anything or the police saying anything to him.’
Mr Ali said the arrested man worked as a painter and decorator for some local residents.
Mr Ali added: ‘They were Met Police officers – they were wearing hats saying Met Police and they didn’t speak like anyone from round here. He was arrested and handcuffed by officers wearing suits.
‘They handcuffed him and led him away, they didn’t put him in the van though – they put him in a marked police car.’
A local mother added: ‘He did some painting on our house about two years ago. He was a nice guy, he was very softly spoken.
‘He used to condemn terrorism in front of my husband, my husband would condemn terrorism and he would agree with him. I know he is a Muslim but I don’t know what mosque he went to.
‘Muslims in this area are totally shocked [shocked! – RS], we condemn terrorism totally and we totally condemn what happened in London.’…
