“Their terror had the evasive quality of guilt: it was not the fear that comes from understanding, but from the refusal to understand.”Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
The still-unnamed London jihadi was turned in twice, once by a neighbor and another time by a friend. Why wasn’t anything done? Because he was a devout Muslim, a holy man in a country that now places Islam above all else. And because law enforcement did not want to appear to “islamophobic” or “racist” (even though Islam is not a race).
And why aren’t the British authorities naming these savages? Why does the Daily Mail pixelate their faces. Respect!
“Amid a series of revelations last night, it was claimed that a friend of the suspect had reported him to the anti-terror hotline…..”
And he targeted children.
‘They were waiting for the children of the neighbourhood. They would give the children chocolate while talking to them. They would pray in the park for hours.’
And then this:
Police were warned about the main suspect radicalising children in a local park two years ago, a neighbour has revealed.
Erica Gasparri, an Italian mother of three who lives in the same complex, said she confronted the man, known locally as “Abs”, after her son came home and said: “Mummy, I want to be a Muslim.”
Gasparri then went to the park, where she said a “Pakistani man” had stated: “I’m ready to do whatever I need to do in the name of Allah. I am ready in the name of Allah to do what needs to be done, including killing my own mother.”
She said: “I took four photographs of him and gave them to the police. They rang Scotland Yard when I was there and said the information had been passed on to Scotland Yard. They were very concerned. They told me to delete the photos for my own safety which I did but then I heard nothing. That was two years ago. No-one came to me. If they did this could have been prevented and lives could have been saved.
“He would go down to the park and talk to them about Islam and he also came to the houses and gave the kids money and sweets during Ramadan.”
One neighbor actually tipped off the murderer that he had been turned in to the police. Doing her part to battle ‘islamophobia.’

The London Bridge killer wearing an Arsenal shirt slipped through the net despite being reported to the police twice for extremism including trying to twist the minds of children he bribed with sweets and cash, it was revealed today.
The security services face difficult questions because the 27-year-old Muslim ringleader, known to friends as ‘Abz’, even appeared in a Channel 4 documentary last year about British jihadists and unfurled an ISIS-style flag in Regent’s Park.
He was also caught on camera alongside two notorious preachers who were well known to police and intelligence officials because of their extremist views.
A friend of the suspect called the anti-terror hotline because he became obsessed with watching hate preacher videos on YouTube and police were later warned he was trying to radicalise children in a local park and giving them treats to listen to him.
‘Abz’ also berated an Imam for encouraging worshippers to vote in the 2015 General Election and was banned from the mosque in the ensuing row.
A friend who called the anti-terror hotline said: ‘I did my bit, I know other people did their bit but the authorities did not do their bit’.
The suspect, who MailOnline has chosen not to name at the request of police, is one of three men who embarked on a stabbing rampage in London on Saturday night.
Gardai in Ireland have confirmed that an Irish ID card was found on the body of another of the killers – who is believed to have been born in Morocco but living in Dublin. Police say he was living in the Rathmines area of the Irish capital with his Scottish wife until around three months ago but he was not on their radar.
Scotland Yard says that it knows the identities of all the killers who murdered seven and injured 48 on London Bridge and inside Borough Market – but have asked the press not to name them.
