The London Bridge attacker, who murdered at least two people on Friday, has been identified as an Islamic terrorist previously convicted of planning an Al Qaeda terror plot in London. The 28-yer-old terrorist of Pakistani origin, Usman Khan, was out on parole after serving less than seven years of his 16-year prison sentence for planning to blow up the  London Stock Exchange and U.S. embassy, among other targets. The convicted terrorist was wearing an electronic tag at the time of the attack, the UK news reports confirm.

The convicted Islamist murdered two people and injured three others at London Bridge on Friday afternoon. He went on a stabbing spree at a criminal justice seminar and was taken out on the spot by the special forces.

Further bloodshed was averted by the truly heroic response by Londoners at the scene, with several members of the public seen running towards the attacker and snatching away the knives from him. “I jumped in and kicked him in the head to make him release his knife. A few others did so,” a man said, who got out his car to tackle the attacker.

Khan was convicted in 2012 for his role in the London Stock Exchange terror plot, as well as planning bomb attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Britain and the residence of Boris Johnson, who was then serving as the Mayor of London. Khan’s co-conspirators “conducted a surveillance trip around central London” and “talked about launching a Mumbai-style attack on Parliament.” They had also planned to set up a jihadi training camp in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, BBC disclosed.

British newspaper Daily Telegraph reported Khan’s background:

In 2012, Khan became a convicted terrorist for his role in the Stock Exchange plot, a planned scheme for a Christmas bomb attack on the London Stock Exchange, the American embassy and the home of Boris Johnson, who was then the Mayor of London.

At the time of his sentencing, the judge warned that he was a “serious jihadist” who should not be released while he remained a threat to the public. (…)

Khan pleaded guilty in 2012 to preparing acts of terrorism as a member of an al-Qaeda-inspired terrorist cell which contained eight other men.

Khan, along with two co-conspirators, originally received an indeterminate sentence for public protection but this was quashed at the Court of Appeal in April 2013 and he was given a 16-year jail term. In February 2012, Khan was ordered to serve at least eight years in prison.

The other conspirators had conducted a surveillance trip around central London and talked about launching a Mumbai-style attack on Parliament. They had also planned to build a terrorist training camp on land in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir owned by Khan’s family.

The sentencing judge had spoken against the early release of Khan and his jihadi co-conspirators. “In my judgment, these offenders would remain, even after a lengthy term of imprisonment, of such a significant risk that the public could not be adequately protected by their being managed on licence in the community, subject to conditions, by reference to a preordained release date,” Justice Wilkie said at that time.

As it emerges, the UK prison authorities ignored those clear warnings and released the Islamists after light sentences.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the early release program for terrorists and hardened criminals after it became known that the London Bridge attacker was out of prison on an electronic tag.

The problem, however, is not restricted to convicted Islamists alone. The United Kingdom is home to about 25,000 Muslim radicals who pose serious threat to the public, European counter-terrorism services estimate. The threat is compounded by the Islamic State terrorists returning from Syria and Iraq. More than 400 ISIS war criminals with British nationality have returned “home” and most of them are allowed to walk free. According to the British newspaper Independent in February 2019, only “one in 10 jihadis returning from Syria to the UK have been prosecuted.”

The UK immigration policies haven’t helped either, paving the way for migrants from jihad-infested regions of the Middle East and South Asia to settle in the British Isles. The opposition Labour Party is promising even more liberal immigration policies to woo migrant voters ahead of the December 12 general election. With Britain’s law enforcement and counter-terrorism agencies struggling to deal with the current level of Islamist threat, open door immigration will make the country even less safe.

A paroled terrorist!!! Terrorists should be executed ten minutes after conviction!

You would think the government would be embarrassed by the pitiful, defenseless state of it citizenry. Of the pitiful, unrealistic state of its justice system. But you would be wrong. Whatever the political party, Brits believe the death of innocents, no matter the number, is preferable to free a d safe citizens.

Things that should be no such things:

“Paroled terrorist.”

Stupid is too kind a word to describe what is going in the UK.
Maybe the Queen should get off her bum and straighten things out.

What! No hands up! Don’t shoot narrative yet? Rest assured, it’s coming. Didn’t Baracky Obammunist castigate the French military and police for coming down on the Kouachi Brothers “Like a hammer” after they dispatched the staff at Charley Hebdo? Betcha Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are chafing at the bit to opine. With friends like the Democratic Party, who needs enemies?

The convicted terrorist was wearing an electronic tag at the time of the attack, the UK news reports confirm.

i’m thinking a shock collar, or an explosive one, would be more efficacious. just enough to pop their heads off the neck.

someone must have clapped instead of jazz handing at him at some point and it triggered him.
totally understandable, clapping is a direct attack on the psyche.

kudos to the bystanders who took him down–takes some real guts to just say the hell with it and go for the guy(especially when he’s armed with a knife or two)–they saved lives by their actions–good on them

    Unlike their elected political class in Westminster, ordinary Brits still know how to show courage in hour of need

      From what I read, one was Polish and they are a tough breed in general.

      The other was a convicted murderer (yes, that thwarted the attack).

      There’s definitely some odd stuff in this story.

England desires to commit national suicide but is to cowardly to pull it off themselves, so they’ve invited a hostile culture in to do the job for them.

“As it emerges, the UK prison authorities ignored those clear warnings and released the Islamists after light sentences.”

Unnamed prison authorities. Unaccountable bureaucrats. And we’re suppose to quietly suffer their ridiculously poor judgment? And if we refuse to do so?

(Reuters) – John Walker Lindh, the American captured in Afghanistan in 2001 fighting for the Taliban, was freed early from federal prison on Thursday after serving 17 years amid concerns he might still harbor extremist views.

U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House that he had asked government lawyers whether the release could be stopped but said nothing could be done.

    There’s a method in this madness, my friend. And it’s to be found all cross the Western World.

      “Learning Together” Academics and criminal justice campaigners had tweeted excitedly about the day ahead as they gathered at the Grade II listed Fishmongers Hall, just off London Bridge, to celebrate Learning Together’s fifth anniversary.” The attacker […]is understood to have been invited to share his experiences as a former prisoner. “Learning Together” was set up in 2014 by Ruth Armstrong and Amy Ludlow, from the Faculty of Law and Institute of Criminology.

      Fishmonger’s Hall is where the Narwhal Whale tusk was wrenched off the wall and used to fend-off the Jihadi. Which leads me to think that the man wielding the tusk is possibly a undercover policeman watching the Jihadi? I dunno. Strange things happen of their own accord.

        Thanks indeed for sharing. That’s what happens when you trade common sense for virtue signaling.

    Could he be arrested as a member of Al Qaeda and held indefinitely in Guantanamo?

It’s so woke that Europe doesn’t let it’ citizens defend themselves. So woke that they actually let terrorists out of jail in order that they may ply their trade. So woke…

Prince Charles is weeping for the terrorist.

Prince Andrew is probably off to Epstein Island out of habit.

Prince Harry is probably getting screamed at by his malignant narcissist hollywood idiot of a wife.

Queen Elizabeth is wondering where she went wrong.

But then: there is Prince William and Kate. An there is also the hope Harry comes to his senses and kicks out that bozo he got himself entangled with. (She can always date jeff bezos: he seems to now go for home-wrecker types. Maybe that his karmic payback for the Washington Post.)

The guy brought a knife to a Narwhal tusk and fire extinguisher fight. RIP to the victims, they are not only victims of this terrorist, but victims of a corrupt and immoral government.

Why do fascists hate Jews?

Because it gives them a “question” to answer and colaesce around.

The term “Jewish question” was first used in Great Britain around 1750 when the expression “Jewish question” was used during the debates related to the Jew Bill of 1753.[1] According to Holocaust scholar Lucy Dawidowicz, the term “Jewish Question,” as introduced in western Europe, was a neutral expression for the negative attitude toward the apparent and persistent singularity of the Jews as a people against the background of the rising political nationalisms and new nation-states. Dawidowicz writes that “the histories of Jewish emancipation and of European antisemitism are replete with proffered ‘solutions to the Jewish question.'”

Nonetheless, there is no worse threat to Jewish survival than liberal Jews.

And the dems are drooling at opening the prison gates and letting their base of voters into free society again.

Mayor Khan praised the cops for….pulling off the Brits that took down the killer and then for shooting him. Hate to break it to the mayor but the Brit subjects took on the killer while he had his knives and the (fake) explosives vest. Now who are the real heros? Boris is getting heat for last PM/govt shortcomings. Imagine the grief the guys taking down the killer would have incurred if they had killed the jihadist? May the West be so successful, that Allah runs out of virgins.

The UK is finished as a country. Long live the Queen!

Who still believes that our Western governments have they’re nation’s good at heart? They want cogs low paid cogs to fit their machines. Also they need to break the nation’s themselves by bringing in foreigners. Don’t think for a second that MS13 and Rotherham are two different things.
