The London Police Commissioner is proud of the fact that the Islamic Supremacists carrying out the Quran’s commandment to “kill (unbelievers) wherever you find them… And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah]” chose such a diverse, multi-national coalition of victims.
The commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police says the nationalities of the eight victims in the terrorist attack on London Bridge tell a proud story of London’s unique makeup.
“It’s desperately sad and poignant but among those who died is someone who’s British, there are French, Australian, Canadian, Spanish,” Cressida Dick told The Associated Press in an interview Saturday.
“In terms of our witnesses that we’ve spoken to so far, out of the 300-odd people, there are about 20 different countries of origin. And the London British population comes from all kinds of backgrounds and every kind of faith and ethnicity.”
She said longtime Londoners value this international aspect of the British capital.”
The victims represent diversity, those who carried out the attacks, not so much.
The left is, of course, nonchalant about terror attacks and more concerned about the increase in “Islamophobic hate crimes” after the recent wave of jihadist attacks. So, after dozens of people have been murdered or injured by jihadists, what horrible attacks are Muslims suffering (according to mosques and imams who are reporting the alleged hate crimes).
Sufia Alam, the manager of the Maryam centre at the East London mosque, said it had had reports of Muslim women being verbally abused on buses. Ash Siddique, the secretary of the Al-Madina mosque in Barking, east London, said women coming to the mosque suffered attacks, including one being grabbed around the throat at a bus stop. “We’ve had a number of ladies who have been verbally abused and a number of ladies who have been spat on. We’ve had a couple of telephone calls, physical threats – ‘we are going to attack you’ – and that sort of thing,” said Siddique.
OMG! A spokesman for a mosque has unconfirmed reports of people being rude to Muslims. How terrible it is to suffer from unconfirmed reports of people being rude to you. (Why do I suspect when he says “a number of ladies,” the number is actually 0). And remember, when he complains about “ladies” being assaulted (no men? how curious) he’s speaking from the perspective of a religion that teaches that women are to be subjugated and domestic violence is widespread and accepted.
I’m sure the Police Commissioner will be all over this “hate crimes” business*. According to the Mayor of London, mass casualty terror attacks are something Londoners are just going to have to live with. But people making rude comments to Mohammedans will not be tolerated.
* Unless it turns out like that “wave of hate crimes after Donald Trump’s election” that all turned out to be fake, in which case it will be quietly forgotten by the media.
