(Before It's News)

This kind of thing indicates an illness that infects western journalists. Khalid Masood was an evil man who sought to further the world-wide control that is called Shariah. He killed people and injured many more in his effort to do so. His acts should be remembered for what they were: Hateful and violent. Instead, the Pos writers are treating him with sympathy.

They also call him a loner. If he was alone in his act why have other people been arrested as accomplices? The ‘Loner’ title is designed to elicit even more sympathy because it indicates he suffered from mental problems. It is a false narrative.

“After privileged childhood, London attacker became a troubled loner”

LONDON — On the final night of a troubled, disjointed life that began in the affluent English countryside and ended in a deadly rampage on the streets of London, Khalid Masood returned to his roots.

He had lived for years in the British Midlands, known to neighbors as a devoted gardener but otherwise all but invisible, an urban ghost who left few traces after a series of criminal convictions and a mysterious trip to Saudi Arabia.

Yet on Tuesday night, at age of 52, Masood rented a car and drove to southeast England, where he was raised. At a hotel in the seaside town of Brighton — not far from the gentle and well-to-do towns where classmates from his prep school days remembered him as a happy, soccer-loving teenager — he exchanged jokes with the manager and went to sleep.

He was “friendly and smiley” and said he was visiting friends, the manager, Sabeur Toumi, told British broadcasters on Friday.

The next morning, Masood checked out and drove to London to commit the worst act of terrorism on British soil in more than a decade. By the time he was shot dead by security forces inside the gates of Parliament, more than 50 people lay wounded in the shadow of Big Ben, four of them mortally.”
