investigation is being led by counter-terrorism officers
The murderer who brutally stabbed Conservative MP Sir David Amess to death earlier today in what is likely an Islamic terror attack has been identified as a 25-year-old of Somali origin.
Amess was attacked while attending his his constituency surgery at Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
The pro-Brexit, anti-abortion MP was stabbed “more than a dozen times” by the attacker and subsequently died on the scene while paramedics tried to treat his wounds. “It is understood the man being held on suspicion of murder is of Somali origin,” reports the Telegraph.
Although authorities say they are said to be keeping an “open mind” about the motivation behind the attack, the investigation is being led by counter-terrorism officers.
According to the Independent, “The murder is being treated at this point as a probable Islamist terror attack.”
The media have predictably refused to identify the attacker, his ethnicity, or his religion, as this is 'the wrong kind of terrorism'. A stark difference to when MP Jo Cox was murdered by a right-wing attacker which became the focus of the report and aftermath. In contrast expect the murderer of this MP to have 'mental health issues' and stories deflecting from the fact that this is yet another terrorist act, committed by an asylum seeker in the name of islam, on British soil, killing an innocent person.
The BBC, who so readily blame conservatives and white people in general after every right-wing terror attack will also pull their usual trick of claiming any focus on the terrorist’s nationality or religion is “Islamophobic.” They will also continue to insist that “diversity is a strength.”
The vast majority of terror attacks in the United Kingdom over the past 20 years have been carried out by Islamists, including the devastating 2017 Manchester Arena bombing, which was carried out by a jihadist who had been rescued from Libya as a refugee by the Royal Navy.
How many more people have to die before we wake up?
