In my initial reaction to the terrorist attack yesterday in London was not to be surprised if the perpetrators were British born. One of the two men responsible for murdering British soldier Lee Rigby yesterday has been identified as Michael Abdebolajo. Of Nigerian descent, he was born and raised in Britain and is a convert to Islam.
Abdebolajo has been on MI-5’s radar for years. In 2006, he was arrested along with three others outside the Old Bailey. A man was being tried for calling on Muslims to kill British soldiers. Abdebolajo said at the time that it was his right to urge people to “behead those who insult Islam.”
Well, yesterday he took it upon himself to carry out that edict. Or fatwa, if you will.
Ross Kaminsky recommended that Britain start deporting Muslims. Even if Britain began deporting foreign born clerics who would spread jihad, it might be too late. The problem goes much deeper when the perpetrators are British born and raised,
