Throughout this year, the United Kingdom has been targeted by terrorism. London has been the stage for numerous, shocking, acts of violence and hate.
Every time we discover the culprit: radical Islamic terror. Time and again people are hurt and often lives are lost. Yet the U.K. government sits on its hands.
It’s clear stronger measures need to be used, but they refuse to do so.
News about the latest terrorist attack has more people asking questions. And a big concern is becoming more and more real.
From Daily Wire:
So, just for those who decry the Trump Administration’s desire to implement harsher vetting of refugees entering the United States, here’s a tidbit of news that will ruin your morning: the bomber who attacked the London tube train Friday morning was, drum roll, please —
An 18-year-old refugee from Syria who arrived in Great Britain at the age of 15.
…Arrested by Kent police as he tried to purchase a ferry ticket to Calais, the teenager reportedly had migrated to the “Jungle camp” at Calais when he was 15. Because he was not with his parents, he was allowed entrance to the United Kingdom…
The notion that this young man was some sort of ISIS sleeper is, in a twisted way, reassuring; it means that he was always secretly driven by a hateful ideology that he successfully hid from everyone. The more unnerving – and, I’d argue, plausible – possibility is that he came to London as a terrified teenage orphan, given an opportunity to start a new life with a (presumably) caring foster family in one of the greatest and freest countries of the world… and he absorbed the enthusiasm for radical jihadism and terrorism that is incubating in certain corners of society in the United Kingdom. If all of this checks out, it indicates that the danger to society doesn’t really come from refugees… it comes from how life in the U.K. can change refugees.
Is it really a surprise that this bomber was a radical, Islamic terrorist? Not a lot of terror coming from Scotland!
The question raised in this article is pretty much a moot point, though. Whether he was an ISIS sleeper agent or turn radical once in England doesn’t matter. If the U.K. had taken the threat of radical, Islamic terror seriously, they would have caught him long before he attacked.
Strict vetting of refugees would have stopped many from entering their country in the first place. And if law enforcement actually investigated the Muslim communities within England, they’d have known that radicalization was spreading.
More and more British Muslims either sympathize with ISIS, or outright agree with them. These communities have become breeding grounds for terrorists. Yet British authorities do nothing, for fear of appearing racist or politically incorrect.
I’m sorry, Brits, but appearances don’t matter, when lives are at stake. It’s time to take more serious measures, before you lose more than you can afford.
