Last Saturday, Libyan Muslim Khairi Saadallah fatally stabbed three homosexual men in the British ‘multicultural‘ town of Reading.
But you’d never know they were gay if your only source was the far-left mainstream media, who avoid like the plague, any mention of virulent anti-Gay bigotry when it comes to Muslims, one of the left’s pet protected class.
Mosaic Magazine – Douglas Murray So far, however, there has been almost no interest expressed in the possible motives of the attacker, a Libyan Muslim asylum seeker.
We hear the usual excuse that the attacker might have mental-health issues. But anything else to see here? Any other reason why a migrant from Libya who was given asylum in the UK might want to go around stabbing gay men? Well who would even ask such questions? What do you want to find? Bigot.
But if the attacker from Saturday night had been a white skinhead, or a neo-Nazi, or had been wearing a big red MAGA hat, I am fairly confident that the gay press and all of the mainstream media would be crawling over every angle of this story by now with an unparalleled fury, hurling allegations of “adjacency” against all of their favorite enemies.
As it is I am reminded of nothing so much as story after story over recent years. Stories like when Muslim terrorist Omar Mateen walked into the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida four years ago and gunned down and killed 49 Gay people wounding dozens more.
The media totally ignored the real (Islam-inspired) motive of the attacker and quickly shifted the blame to the NRA and lax gun control laws.
The fear [is] that talking about Islamic homophobia as a potential motive in this case might increase prejudice against Muslims. It’s a calculation of a very cynical and inept kind.
Various government sources claimed security services looked into Saadallah, from Libya, last year, based on a suspicion of planning terrorism abroad. However, authorities found no evidence that he posed a threat.
Counter-Terrorism Policing South East said in a statement issued June 20 that the suspect was re-arrested under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000 with the incident being treated as an act of terrorism.
