Attack on Parliament at Westminster

A car-and-knife attack outside the British Parliament has left four dead, another 20 wounded according to The Spectator:

Four people – including a police officer – have died and twenty people have suffered ‘catastrophic’ injuries in a terror attack outside Parliament. A 4×4 car was driven into pedestrians on the pavement of Westminster Bridge before being crashed into railings outside Parliament. It is believed a man armed with a knife then emerged from a vehicle and ran around the corner and into the entrance of the Palace of Westminster, where he fatally stabbed a police officer. The attacker was then shot two or three times by police. Foreign Office minister Tobias Ellwood is believed to have given first aid to the injured officer in the aftermath of the attack. The Telegraph are reporting that Ellwood – a former soldier whose brother died in the 2002 Bali terror attack – gave mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to the officer in a bid to save his life.

The details of the attack fit a growing pattern of terrorist attacks featuring assailants plowing vehicles into groups of unsuspecting victims:

Truck attack at a Christmas market in Germany — 12 killed, 50 wounded

Truck attack at a Bastille Day festival in Nice, France — 84 killed

Car and knife attack at Ohio State University — 11 wounded

Truck attack in Jerusalem — 10 wounded

The Daily Mirror tweeted a photo of the suspect:

There are some who claim based on “reports” to have the name of the attacker, but the Metropolitan Police have not yet released any such information as of the time of this writing:

The Daily Mail says Channel 4 got it wrong in identifying the attacker as Trevor Brooks/Abu Izzadeen’s lawyer as well as his brother both of whom reportedly say that he’s still in jail:

Channel 4 has since walked it back:

I’m not ready to pull the trigger on believing anything about the attacker just yet, at least until we hear anything definitive from local law enforcement, but I don’t expect to learn that the attacker is Amish.

However this shakes out, the story is still developing, and Denzel Washington’s words ring especially true if the attacker is in fact not Brooks/Izzadeen:

The London Metropolitan Police have named the person believed responsible for the attack:

From their statement:

The man police believe to be responsible for the terrorist attack in Westminster yesterday, Wednesday, 22 March, has now been formally identified as Khalid Masood.

Masood, aged 52 (25.12.1964), was born in Kent and detectives believe he was most recently living in the West Midlands. Masood was also known by a number of aliases.

Masood was not the subject of any current investigations and there was no prior intelligence about his intent to mount a terrorist attack.

However, he was known to police and has a range of previous convictions for assaults, including GBH, possession of offensive weapons and public order offences.

His first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage and his last conviction was in December 2003 for possession of a knife.

He has not been convicted for any terrorism offences.

Anyone with any information about Masood can call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline 0800 789 321.

Occupational Hazards In Education

Education isn’t an easy profession to endure, but teachers in Australia these days face a more ominous occupational hazard than say, repetitive motion injuries sustained from grading papers or typing up homework assignments:

Teachers at a primary school in Sydney, Australia have been threatened with beheading and other violence from young Islamic students, prompting one of them to quit her job. Students as young as those in Year 5, according to the Daily Telegraph, are making the violent threats and pressuring others to read the Koran at Punchbowl Public School in Sydney.

Documents given to the newspaper allege that three staff members have taken a leave of absence owing to stress, received counselling and been awarded compensation after bullying from Islamic students.

One female teacher reportedly quit her job after it got too much for her. She claims she quit after receiving death threats to her family from her year 5 and 6 students, with some saying they would behead her. The teacher also said she made numerous complaints back in 2014 about the extraordinary behavior in the class. For example, she said, she was abused by students after she stopped them from hanging a Syrian flag in the classroom.

In another example, she claimed she was pushed into a corner by students who began marching around her chanting the Koran.

Before you commit thoughtcrime by merely acknowledging that something might be a little off about this, repeat after me, before the police come to take you away:

Religion of peace

Diversity is our strength

Free speech is hate speech

The progressive-left has already made it abundantly clear that no conversations shall be had about these ideas, and that any criticism of a religious doctrine which commands the beheading of infidels is “gross and racist“.

Whenever anyone even meekly asserts that they’d really rather not be “culturally enriched” by suicide bombing, sharia law, or female genital mutilation, they risk character assassination in addition to actual assassination.

Dark humor aside, and the usual #NotAllMuslims caveats already in place and ready for me to repeat ad infinitum, what will it take for people in the west to wake up and realize that this is not compatible with Western civilization?

Whatever it takes, my greatest hopes lie with the liberal, secular Muslim reformers who risk their very lives to be murdered as apostates or heretics to speak of an Islamic Reformation so desperately needed for a soft landing between Islam and the West:

 

 

In ‘Current Year’ the BBC Asks ‘What is the Right Punishment for Blasphemy?’

Recently, Pakistan reached out to Facebook to help identify people suspected of blasphemy to aid in their prosecution, according to CNBC:

Under Pakistani law anyone suspected of blasphemy can be prosecuted and potentially sentenced to death.

According to Reuters, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said Thursday that an official in Pakistan’s Washington embassy has approached the two social media companies in an effort to identify Pakistanis, either within the country or abroad, who recently shared material deemed offensive to Islam.

Authorities in Pakistan have already identified 11 people suspected of blasphemy and would seek the extradition of anyone living abroad.

Facebook said it reviews all government requests carefully, “with the goal of protecting the privacy and rights of our users.”

After the news of this broke, the BBC, under the guise of the BBC Asian Network, asked not whether blasphemy laws are right, but instead asked what the “right” punishment for blasphemy should be:

The BBC attempted to “clarify” the bit as a “poorly worded question”, though I too don’t see how that makes the question any better.

The BBC Asian Network didn’t seem at all fazed by the fact that you can be murdered in Pakistan for criticizing one particular religion.

Gad Saad is a Lebanese Jewish atheist, and has been an open and vocal critic of religious extremism, especially since his family fled from that country’s civil war because his family faced summary execution for being Jewish:

Needless to say, he took a pretty good rip out of the BBC’s bizarre question:

It’s incredible to me that in “current year“, 2017 that this is even a question for any media outlets of western origin — that it comes more specifically from the “BBC Asian Network” makes little difference to me because the parent company is still the BBC.

That I’m an American makes little difference to me as well — I wouldn’t care for religious extremism propagandized at taxpayer expense were it from NPR, so I can imagine that British patriots wouldn’t either like that the extremist ideology of Lee Rigby’s murderers is funded by British taxpayers either.

It’s worth noting that one particular Muslim reformist — whom I’d seriously consider taking a bullet for — was none too pleased:
