LINKED TO ISIS: Manchester Bomber’s FATHER AND BROTHERS ARRESTED
Is anybody truly surprised to learn that the entire Abedi family is involved in the Manchester terror attack?
Like Muslim father like Muslim son. Or as some would simply say, “Like Muslim like Muslim!”
As FOX News reported,
Manchester bomber Salman Abedi apparently wasn’t the only member of his family to harbor extremist views as Libyan officials arrested the suicide bomber’s father and two brothers, and apparently uncovered a plot for a new attack.
Hashim Abedi, who was born in 1997, was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday evening by the Libyan counter-terrorism force Rada on suspicion of links to the Islamic State, a Libyan spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday. The suspect was planning to stage a new attack, The Washington Post reported.
The father of the bomber was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday, a Libyan security spokesman told The Associated Press. The father, Ramadan Abedi, had said another brother of the bomber, Ismail, was arrested Tuesday.
Earlier Abdel-Basit Haroun, a former security official in Libya, told The Associated Press Wednesday that 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 Qaeda.
Although the LIFG disbanded, Haroun said the father belongs to the Salafi Jihadi movement, the most extreme sect of Salafism and from which Al Qaeda and the Islamic State group hail. Haroun added that Abedi, also known as Abu Ismail, had returned to the Libyan capital of Tripoli.
Just so we are clear for the leftists, the hatred Muslims feel for Western culture runs deep and for generations.
So the idea that we will “westernize” it out of them is ridiculous.
As the article suggests, the Abedi family reeks of radical Islam, and the epicenter is the father.
The LIFG was founded in 1995, and was involved in attempts to assassinate then-Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi as well as violent clashes with Benghazi police. In 2002, a senior LIFG commander, Anas al-Libi, who also was a companion of Al Qaeda founder Usama bin Laden, was detained by U.S. forces for his role in the 1998 bombings of the American Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed more than 200 people.
The group also was involved in the bloody riots at Abu Salim prison near Benghazi in 1996 that killed more than 1,200 prisoners.
The LIFG reportedly teamed up with the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group in planning the May 2003 bombings in Casablanca, Morocco, that killed more than 40 people and injured more than 100. The group also has been linked to the 2004 attacks in Madrid that killed 194 people.
Ramadan Abedi – along with his wife Samia Tabbal — escaped Tripoli in 1993 after Qaddafi’s security authorities issued an arrest warrant and eventually sought political asylum in Britain. The elder Abedi first immigrated to London before settling in the Whalley Range area of south Manchester, where they had lived for at least a decade.
There is the history of the Abedi family, and then there is the narrative.
According to the media,
The Abedi family had apparently become concerned about Salma’s growing radicalization and a friend close to the family told The New York Times that his parents had seized the suspected bomber’s British passport. They had returned it when he said that he wanted to return to the holy Saudi city of Mecca, but instead flew back to the Manchester area.
I’m not buying it.
And look how the lamestream media portrayed the incident, again calling it a “lone wolf” attack:
While early reports were unclear whether the 22-year-old Abedi had acted as a lone wolf or in coordination with others, Manchester’s police chief told reporters on Wednesday that it is clear “this is a network we are investigating” as he gave an update on the probe into the bomb attack.
Who knows the family’s involvement at this point? What we do know is the 22-year old Abedi didn’t act alone. Further, his actions cost the lives of 22 people and wounded 59 others.
Sadly, this entire tragedy undoubtedly could have been avoided, if leftists were not running the world.
