Always, after every jihad terror attack, this happens. All too many non-Muslim officials seem to think that it’s their first responsibility and priority to make sure that no one thinks ill of Islam. Their real first duty should be to inform their citizens of why this is happening, and explain the jihad doctrine to them, so that they can be prepared. Andy Burnham is yet another in a long line of elected officials who are betraying their people.
“Manchester Mayor: Bomber Was A Terrorist, Not A Muslim,” LBC, May 24, 2017:
Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham says the bomber who killed 22 people was a terrorist, not a Muslim….
But the Mayor of Manchester insisted that this man was a terrorist who had noting to do with Islam.
Speaking to Nick Ferrari on LBC, he said…
“The message that I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim.
“He does not represent the Muslim community. We’ve got to keep that distinction in mind all the time. This was an unspeakable act.
“The worst thing that can happen is that people use this to blame an entire community, the Muslim community.
“In my view, the man who committed this atrocity no more represents the Muslim community than the individual who murdered my friend Jo Cox represents the white, Christian community.”
