Likely Islamic terror attack.
The murderer who brutally stabbed Conservative MP Sir David Amess to death earlier today in what is likely an Islamic terror attack has been identified as a 25-year-old of Somali origin.
Amess was attacked while attending his his constituency surgery at Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
The pro-Brexit, anti-abortion MP was stabbed “more than a dozen times” by the attacker and subsequently died on the scene while paramedics tried to treat his wounds.
“It is understood the man being held on suspicion of murder is of Somalian origin,” reports the Telegraph.
Although authorities say they are keeping an “open mind” about the motivation behind the attack, the investigation is being led by counter-terrorism officers.
According to the Independent, “The murder is being treated at this point as a probable Islamist terror attack.”
The identity of the perpetrator will once again open up a debate in the UK about the threat posed by mass immigration, especially given the record numbers of boat migrants arriving on England’s south coast.
The same leftists who rush to blame conservatives and white people in general after every right-wing terror attack will also pull their usual trick of claiming any focus on the terrorist’s nationality or religion is “Islamophobic.”
They will also continue to insist that “diversity is a strength.”
The vast majority of terror attacks in the United Kingdom over the past 20 years have been carried out by Islamists, including the devastating 2017 Manchester Arena bombing, which was carried out by a jihadist who had been rescued from Libya as a refugee by the Royal Navy.
