The one thing that the media and the politicians refuse to discuss, acknowledge or address in the wake of the London beheading is the only thing that matters. The mosque and the teachings of Islam. The mother of the devout Muslim who beheaded a young father on the streets of a London suburb took him to a mosque to stop him from being "radicalized," and he returned more "radical" than ever. Close that mosque.
Kamala writes me, "as usual, the hints at what really happened are buried deep, almost as afterthoughts, in these articles. Check out this snippet, practically hidden in a profile of one of the Woolwich attackers and his mother":
Telegraph: His mother was advised by a neighbour to take him to the head of the Woolwich mosque for spiritual guidance. He was converted to Islam by the head Imam, and taken for weeks of "further training" at a centre near Cambridge.
When he returned, however, he was even more "radicalised" and his mother could no longer "get through to him". A spokesman for the mosque said they did not know if he attended or been converted there.
Isn't that always the response from mosque spokesmen?
So many obvious questions that no one will ask. Which Imam? (Certainly must be one of those Imams so good at condemning terrorism after attacks like this.) What "centre near Cambridge"? What training did he receive there? How many have received the same training? Etc. etc.
These are the same questions we should be asking about the Boston jihad bombing and the scores of attempted Islamic attacks in the US.
