He read the Koran, and then he went out and killed infidels. This isn’t rocket science. The Koran commands warfare against unbelievers. But British authorities, and authorities all over the West, are determined to ignore that.

“‘I saw he was quieter and much more serious’: Westminster killer converted to Islam after jail says childhood friend,” Telegraph, March 25, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A childhood friend of Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood has spoken of how his companion had completely changed after prison, where it is feared he was groomed for extremism behind bars.

According to Mark Ashdown, 52, there were still flashes of his old friend’s personality, but otherwise he was like a different person.

He told the Sun: “When he first came out he told me he’d become a Muslim in prison and I thought he was joking.

“Then I saw he was quieter and much more serious.

“I gave him some cash-in-hand work for a few months as a labourer.

“He said he needed time to pray and read the Koran – something about finding inner peace.”

Counter-terrorism officers have spent days piecing together what led the 52-year-old to shed his birth name and later unleash carnage on the capital.

Only two men – a 27-year-old and 58-year-old arrested in Birmingham – remain in custody after a hunt for accomplices saw 11 people held after raids across the country.

It remains unclear whether the destructive assault which left four dead and scores injured was carried out alone or with support.

Mr Ashdown said that Masood’s personality was buried beneath the “deeply religious” man he had become.

He continued: “There were still flashes of the old Ade, but they were few and far between.

“I heard he’d split from his partner and got even more deeply into religion. But nothing could have prepared me for hearing his name on the radio.”

His abrupt religious conversion will fuel concerns about the rising threat of criminals being brought under the influence of hardened jihadists while in prison.

Ministers have announced plans to create specialist units within jails to tackle what a government-ordered review last year concluded was a “growing problem”….

  • That’s not what the papers say.

    ‘Smelly’ Westminster killer ‘blew thousands on crack sessions with hookers while on benefits and went on mammoth drug benders because he was not a proper Muslim’
    Khalid Masood was ‘not a proper Muslim’ and took drugs including acid, it has been claimed by friends

    These people are willing to die,yet they can’t follow the prohibitions in the Quran. All the attacks carried out so far have been by “muslims” who had been drinking the night before, or doing something not in accordance with the religion , does that sound like a devout muslim to you? One of the prohibitions is by the way taking another soul for no reason. Thou shalt not kill is in all 3 Abrahimic faiths.

    As for taking the verses out of context, I too can do that with other religious books. In case you don’t know, when Islam was being preached the muslims had a lot of enemies and these verses allowed fighting as self defence. Before you quote the sayings of the prophet which were written hundreds of years later, which may or may not be true, I would like to say that there is a strict prohibition of killing and trying to convert people to islam in the Quran as it goes against everything we believe in. God wants you to worship him out of love for him not because you are being threatened. If you force someone to believe in islam whatever deeds the person then does out of fear is not accepted. How is it otherwise that both christians and jews lived with prophet Mohammed (pbuh+f) in peace.

    Stop visiting sites stirring up hatred and ask a muslim! In fact i’m waiting for your questions.
