Two-thirds of British Muslims said in 2016 poll they wouldn’t share terrorist info wi
 
This is what I've been sayin' for a long time. Just because there's a low percentage of Muslims who actually carry out terrorist attacks, the number who sympathizes, protects, and refuses to condemen is extremely high.

Two-thirds of British Muslims said in 2016 poll they wouldn’t share terrorist info with police – TheBlaze

Quote:

In the wake of the deadly terrorist attack in Manchester, England, on Monday night — a suicide bombing that took at least 22 lives and for which the Islamic State has claimed responsibility — the results of a 2016 poll of British Muslims could speak to the nation’s present security concerns.

Among the findings revealed last April were that two-thirds of British Muslims would not notify police if they knew someone who was getting involved with others who support terrorism in Syria.

Other noteworthy stats: About one-third of respondents refused to condemn those who use violence against those who mock the Prophet Muhammad, and almost one-quarter agreed with the introduction of Shariah law in England.

As soon as the Muslims think they can get away with forming their own caliphate on your soil, they will. Buggers never had any intention of assimilation with the locals. The Muslims think those locals are weak and stupid for letting them in. :wave

Off-Duty Officer Among Dead in UK Blast
May 24, 2017 | An off-duty police officer attending a concert with her family lost her life in the deadly terrorist attack in Manchester, England Monday night.
Quote:

Officials said that the female officer was killed in the blast caused by suicide bombed while attending the Ariana Grande concert with her husband and two children, according to The Daily Mirror. Her husband was listed in critical condition while her children were treated for injuries. "One of the victims is a serving police officer but, respecting their family's wishes, I will make no further comment at this stage," Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins at a news conference Wednesday.

Police and other emergency services are seen near the Manchester Arena on Monday, May 22, 2017 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England after reports of an explosion. Manchester police reported "a number of confirmed fatalities and others injured" as hundreds fled the arena following an Ariana Grande concert at the venue.

There were 22 killed and 119 injured when Salman Abedi detonated an IED in the foyer as fans exited the arena following the concert. Detectives believe Abedi was by himself when he set off the bomb, but are investigating whether anyone else was involved and have made several arrests connected to the attack.

The United Kingdom's terror threat level was raised from 'severe' to 'critical', meaning another attack is possibly imminent. Soldiers were placed on duty at vulnerable locations including Buckingham Palace, Downing Street and the Palace of Westminster.

Who was Salman Abedi?
Wed, 24 May 2017 - The man suspected of killing 22 people in Manchester had recently returned to the city from Libya.

Police have named 22-year-old Salman Ramadan Abedi as the person suspected of carrying out the suicide attack at Manchester Arena on Monday evening. The BBC understands that Abedi was a "mule" carrying out the attack for a larger network of collaborators, which is being investigated by Greater Manchester Police. But what do we know about the suspected suicide bomber?

Salman Abedi has been named by police as the Manchester bomber

Abedi was born in Manchester on New Year's Eve 1994 to Libyan parents, who had fled that country after becoming opponents of Colonel Gaddafi's regime. Having spent a few years in London, the family moved to Manchester where Abedi's father used to do the call to prayer at a mosque in Didsbury. Abedi attended Burnage Academy for Boys in Manchester between 2009 and 2011, before going to the Manchester College until 2013 and then Salford University in 2014. However, he dropped out of university and worked in a bakery.

The BBC understands that the public previously warned authorities about Abedi's extremism. A community support worker, who did not wish to be named, said several years ago members of the public called an anti-terrorism hotline about Abedi after he publicly said "he was supporting terrorism" and "being a suicide bomber is ok". Friends remember him as a good footballer, a keen supporter of Manchester United and a user of cannabis. He had a sister and two brothers. His mother and father are now believed to be back living in Libya. For a while he left the UK too, but he is believed to have returned in the past few days.

Abedi's 23-year-old brother Ismail was arrested in connection with the attack on Tuesday morning

Abedi's family lived at more than one address in the city, including a property at Elsmore Road, in the Fallowfield area, that was raided by police on Tuesday. Officers also searched a property in Whalley Range. Seven people have been arrested so far in the UK in connection with the attack. One - confirmed as Abedi's 23-year-old brother Ismail - on Tuesday morning, and a further four on Wednesday: three in south Manchester and one in Wigan.

What happened?

Twenty-two people were killed in the explosion, including an eight-year-old girl. The attacker died at the scene. Witnesses said the noise of the explosion was followed by a flash of fire. Pictures show debris and casualties in the foyer area of the arena. Metal nuts and bolts were strewn around the floor among bodies and the smell of explosives was in the air, witnesses said.

A possible detonator, and backpack remains, found at the scene

The foyer where the bomb was detonated is the busiest exit from the arena. Concert-goers were seen fleeing down the stairs into Victoria station, where there were scenes of panic. More than 240 emergency calls were made; 60 ambulances and 400 police officers attended. After the attack hundreds of people in Manchester took to social media to offer spare beds and rooms for those stranded in the city.

Who carried out the attack?

Salman Abedi, 22, has been named by police as the suspected suicide bomber. Abedi was born in Manchester on New Year's Eve 1994, the BBC understands. It is thought that he has at least three siblings: an elder brother who was born in London, and a younger brother and sister who were born in Manchester. The family, believed to be of Libyan origin, has lived at several addresses in Manchester, including at a property at Elsmore Road in the Fallowfield area which was raided by police on Tuesday.

Abedi attended Burnage Academy for Boys in Manchester between 2009 and 2011, before going to The Manchester College until 2013 and then Salford University in 2014. BBC News understands that members of the public had called an anti-terrorism hotline hotline after he expressed the views that "he was supporting terrorism" and "being a suicide bomber was ok". Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Abedi was known "up to a point" by security services, and it was believed he had recently returned from Libya. The so-called Islamic State group has claimed responsibility, but this has not been verified.
