This may not come as a surprise to most people.
Terrorism seems to be something inherited by Islamic families… it’s their ‘thing’.
According to a former Libyan security official, the father of Salman Abedi — the alleged Manchester arena terrorist — was a former member of an al-Qaida-backed group in Libya.
Maybe that’s why Salman’s bomb was so sophisticated, he learned from daddy?
Breitbart reports that: Former Libyan security official Abdel-Basit Haroun said Wednesday he personally knew Ramadan Abedi, the father of Salman Abedi, and that the elder Abedi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting group in the 1990s. The group had links to al-Qaida.
Although the LIFG disbanded, Haroun says the father belongs to the Salafi Jihadi movement, the most extreme sect of Salafism and from which al-Qaida and the Islamic State group hail.
Haroun says Abedi, also known as Abu Ismail, had returned to the Libyan capital of Tripoli.
Ramadan Abedi told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Tripoli that his family “aren’t the ones who blow up ourselves among innocents.”
One thought: what the F*CK is the British government doing allowing people like this to reside in their country?
With a past like this, the Abedis should have been immediately turned away.
But you know, they were fleeing from Moammar Gadhafi or some bullsh*t like that.
Of course, the father is denying his sons involvement with the bombing claiming it’s not his family’s style to “blow up ourselves among innocents.”
Ramadan Abedi says he spoke to his 22-year-old son, Salman Abedi, five days ago and he was getting ready to visit Saudi Arabia and sounded “normal.”
He said that his son visited Libya a month-and-a -half ago.
The elder Abedi told The Associated Press by telephone from Tripoli: “We don’t believe in killing innocents. This is not us.”
He said his other son, Ismail, was arrested in England on Tuesday morning.
He said Salman was planning to head from Saudi Arabia to Libya to spend the holy month of Ramadan with family.
Hopefully this attack will really wake up British officials to start making REAL changes.
These attacks have to stop.
No longer should the children of the UK be subjected to violence like this.
