UPDATE: Well what a surprise, or rather not, it turns out that this Salafi mosque which paints itself as ‘moderate’, is a hotbed of rampant Jew-hatred, Kuffar-hatred and Gay-hatred. They are not quite as ‘moderate’ as they try to give the impression of being. See
It will come as no surprise to readers that the bomber who carried out the Manchester Islamic atrocity did not act alone. It will also come as no surprise that a lot of the bomber’s family are dodgy or suspected of being dodgy (they’ve been arrested by Libyan counter-terror officers) or that they worshipped at Didsbury Mosque a Jihad-approving mosque in the south of Manchester that has been accused of supplying funds to Al Qaeda linked groups. The big surprise is that a number of entities such as Greater Manchester Police, the Security Services and the Government, allowed this entity to remain open.
Didsbury mosque, with its Salafist culture and known connections with members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, along with suspicions of raising money for Al-Qa’ida, should have been forcibly shut down by the government many years ago. What is obviously being preached there or accepted there is not merely a conservative view of Islam, but violent Jihad and that, in my opinion, crosses the line that divides free speech from credible incitement to violence. Didsbury Mosque is, because of these revelations about the connections the mosque and jihadists, without doubt a Jihadist mosque, even the Quilliam group say so and the long history it has with Salafism backs that claim up.
What were the government thinking? What were the security services, both those which are uniformed aka the police and the non uniformed ones such as the Security Service doing about this mosque. Nothing or at best very little it seems. It appears that this centre of terror and sedition was left unmolested, unchecked and fully operational.
Hiding behind the protections given to religions in the United Kingdom, Didsbury Mosque was left alone by the authorities, left alone to fester and host in their midst a mass murderer of children called Salman Abedi.
This mosque appears to have done very little to exclude people who were a bit suspect or with records for extremism or who had fled countries in order avoid capture for terrorist activities, maybe they should have done more? Surely in even the most badly run mosque or other religious institution the management or religious staff would know which of their congregation are a bit dodgy and which are not? If the mosque did know, which is likely, that they had people in their mosque who were regular attenders of whom there were credible suspicions of involvement in overseas terror activity, then why did this mosque not push harder to get the authorities to act?
According to some reports, individuals at the mosque did report suspicions to the authorities but it wasn’t followed up by the police and the mosque didn’t continue to press this matter maybe as much as they could have done? Although individuals may have done the right thing in contacting the authorities the question remains why did this mosque not expel such people who were suspected of extremism? Other religions can deal with their extremists and nut-cases by either involving the authorities or by excluding them from the particular religious group whether locally or nationally, why can’t Islamic entities like Didsbury Mosque do the same?
As a result of being unmasked as the mosque that hosted the Manchester bomber the mosque put out a statement that reeked of the usual taqiyya and bullshit that we see so often from Islamic spokespersons and organisations following an Islamic atrocity. The statement, quoted by Breitbart London said:
The Manchester Islamic Centre and Didsbury Mosque condemns the horrific incident in Manchester on Monday. The thoughts and prayers of Manchester Islamic Centre is with the victims, their families, their friends and the Manchester community as a whole.
What a load of mealy mouthed dishonest arse covering rubbish. Today the Didsbury Mosque offers sympathies and prayers but yesterday they were hosting the bomber who murdered children. Taqiyya and bullshit, that’s all that statement is. I’d like to believe that they were being honest and truthful, but the nature of the mosque and the type of people and politics that surrounds it makes me suspicious. Change the word ‘Manchester’ in that statement and you could use those words following any other Islamic atrocity. This statement is merely boilerplate bullshit, we see the same thing from terrorist’s mosques after every incident of Jihadism. It’s a ‘nothing to do with me guv’nor’ statement. This place has obviously been hosting problematical people for years and the mosque didn’t take strong enough action when they should have done and we need to ask why that was? Why was jihadist drek being allowed to operate in this mosque when the jihadists analogues in other faiths would have been shown the door pretty damn sharpish.
This mosque should have been shut down at the first sign that Jihadist opinions were being tolerated or preached there. It should have been noted as a problem. The place should have been raided, everyone on the premises taken into custody and interrogated and only released if they were squeaky clean. All documentation should have been seized examined for fiscal irregularities and extremist Jihadist content. In other words, why didn’t the government and the security forces do to these hosts of a murderer what they’ve done to those who’ve been persecuted by the Establishment because they’ve spoken out against Islam? Tommy Robinson for instance was treated far far worse than the management of this terror mosque have been treated.
The mosque should have then been shut down years ago and the building forcibly sold, if money was going to dodgy places or jihadist links were found. Unfortunately that’s not what the Government, the police, Special Branch or MI5 did. They just left the place alone. They left the Didsbury mosque and its cadre of jihad supporters to fester and eventually the mosque became the launchpad for the child murdering savage Salman Abedi, the beast who brought violent death to the innocent people of Manchester.
Whatever excuses or reasons the government or the various security forces may give subsequently give about why they left the Didsbury Mosque alone for so long, they should no longer be sufficient to assuage people’s anger about this terror and sedition centre. Whatever mistakes have been made in the past by leaving this mosque alone, should be rectified and they should be rectified by the immediate and forcible closure of this mosque by the Government. Those involved in the mosques management who knew about the jihadists in their midst but said nothing, should be imprisoned, interned or exiled from this country. We don’t need any more jihadi scum or jihadi sympathisers here we have enough already. A policy of forcibly closing mosques which have hosted extemist preachers, which fund extremist causes or who have jihadists among their congregation needs to be implemented soon. The threat of having their mosque raided, closed and possibly confiscated may be the only way to convince these Mosques to give up their jihad supporters to the authorities.
This particular example of an Islamic terror and sedition centre should in extremis, be razed to the ground by the authorities, but if that is not possible then the two legged Islamist rats that appear to inhabit this building should be permanently chased out. No excuses, no wittering on about ‘religious freedom’, no hiding behind political correctness, just get this terror and sedition centre and the many like it, shut down immediately. Nothing else should be acceptable to a public still horrified by the actions of the Islamic savages, at least one of whom worshipped at Didsbury Mosque, who struck on Monday night.
