UK: Here yet again we see the correlation between Islamic religiosity and jihad terror activity. This isn’t hard to understand. The Qur’an exhorts believers to commit acts of violence (cf. 2:191, 4:89, 9:5, 47:4, etc.), and so some who begin to take such passages seriously and determine to live by them end up becoming violent. But British officials are so deeply self-deceived that they’re likely puzzled as to why Sudesh Amman’s Islamic faith didn’t pacify him and prevent him from committing any acts of violence.
“Pictured moments before launching terror attack on South London street: Streatham jihadi who stabbed two people 10 days after being freed from jail had started praying five times a day, his mother tells inquest as his last moments are revealed,” by Jack Wright, MailOnline, August 2, 2021:
A convicted terrorist who stabbed two people in a street attack 10 days after his release from prison has been spotted on CCTV moments before the knifing.
Streatham attacker Sudesh Amman, 20, is seen in CCTV images setting out from his bail hostel on his way to carry out the horrendous attack.
Amman – from Harrow – was automatically released from prison on January 23, 2020, and placed under 24-hour surveillance by police and security services.
Just 10 days later, the terrorist ran into a shop on Streatham High Road, stole an eight-inch carving knife, and stabbed two people on a 62-second rampage while wearing a fake suicide belt….
Amman was said to have been a prefect and mentor at his school before developing ‘behavioural issues’ and showing signs of ‘anger’, according to counter-terrorism police.
An inquest heard how Amman’s mother had told officers from the Met Police’s counter-terrorism unit how her son used to become angry with her, his brothers and other people while he was at school.
He also became more religious from around 2014, when he began praying in his bedroom, according to his mother.
As his behaviour worsened, Amman was later suspended three times from school, including for being under the influence of alcohol and a ‘serious weapons offence’….
It was also revealed how police were so concerned about pleaded with a prison governor not to release him because he still held ‘extremist views’ and had told an inmate he was ‘not finished with non-believers’, his inquest heard today.
However, the request to extend Amman’s custody was turned down because the earlier offence that he had committed could not justify an extension of his sentence, a senior Met officer told jurors….
Mr Williams added that Amman had become more religious from around 2014, when he began praying in his bedroom, according to his mother.
Mr Williams described how Amman was suspended from school on three occasions, including for being under the influence of alcohol in 2015, for being in possession of tobacco and smoking at school in 2016, and for a ‘serious incident involving weapons’ later that year.
The inquest heard this incident, in April 2016, took place in Harrow when he allegedly attacked someone he knew from school.
It was alleged that Amman produced a samurai sword and a black revolver from his waistband, and was subsequently arrested.
The alleged victim did not provide a statement and there was a lack of forensic evidence, so no further action was taken against Amman, Mr Williams said.
Amman attained B and C grades at GCSE, Mr Williams said. He then went to Barnet College but was excluded after trying to hit a classmate with broken glass before punching him in the head.
Mr Williams said Amman’s mother described her son as becoming ‘more religious’, praying five times a day, growing a beard and wearing traditional Islamic dress….
He later accused social workers of calling him ‘a terrorist’ and said that Great Britain ‘wasn’t so great’, when being spoken to by the home offending team….
A year later, in May 2018, Amman was identified as the user of a Telegram chat account using the name StrangerToThisWorld which had been posting extremist material.
The user of the account also appeared to incite violence by urging an attack on a gay rights speaker, the inquest was told. Amman was arrested and his computer seized which revealed extremist Islamist material, including a recipe for making explosives.
His friend and girlfriend, with whom he had shared material, were also arrested and later released without charge.
Amman pleaded guilty in November 2018 to 13 offences of obtaining and distributing material which could be used for terrorist purposes and was jailed for 40 months.
Mr Murphy said: ‘In September 2016 he moved to Barnet Southgate College. He was excluded in 2017 due to fighting in school. In June 2017 he was convicted of possession of cannabis and threatening a person with a weapon.
‘[In May 2018] he was arrested on suspicion of engaging in and preparing for acts of terrorism. He was identified as the user of a Telegram Account. He had urged an attack on a Gay rights speaker.’
