Well, if you don't even take the time to google the phrase "jihad verses in the Koran," you are fated--nay, doomed--to remain in the dark, forever.
Re the bafflement expressed by deputy assistant Metropolitan police commissioner Neil Basu, who told the public, “We must all accept that there is a possibility we will never understand why [Masood] did this.” Robert Spencer comments:
British officials don’t admit that there is an Islamic jihad against Britain and the non-Muslim world in general, and so of course they don’t understand why he did this. When the last pockets of resistance are conquered and Sharia is fully implemented in Britain, the last Briton who remembers that Britain was once a free society but, like the overwhelming majority of his countrymen, is concerned above all to observe politically correct niceties and never appear “racist,” will say of his new masters and overlords: “We must all accept that there is a possibility we will never understand why they conquered and subjugated us.” Maybe that person will be Neil Basu.Maybe. But maybe Basu will still be fretting about the semantics of it all:
But deputy assistant Metropolitan police commissioner Neil Basu said: “We still believe that Masood acted alone on the day and there is no information or intelligence to suggest there are further attacks planned.”
The security services do not like the term “lone wolf”, feeling that it glamorises an attacker, and instead prefer “lone actor”.I dunno. "Actor" sounds kind of glamorous too, no?
As the Bard might have put it: "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women--including those lone wolves/actors waging jihad for the sake of expanding Allah's domain--merely players..."
