We now all now know the man that ran down pedestrian tourists with his car injuring 40, killing four (so far) and the man that killed PC Keith Palmer by shoving a knife into him, was 52 year-old Khalid Masood.
British born, his birth name was Adrian Elms, dropping it for the Islamic name Khalid Masood when he converted.
Police believe that conversion happened in prison where he spent time for violent offences after his first run in with the law that resulted in a conviction in 1983, and his last conviction believed to have been in 2003.
Masood faced charges and convictions for weapons charges, disturbing the peace, assault and causing grievous bodily harm.
This was a man that was well known to police, and at one point, he was also on the radar of MI5 as a “peripheral” figure in a terrorism investigation.
So why wasn’t he under surveillance when he rented a car and made the long trip to London to attack the mother of all Parliaments?
That’s the scary part. It’s not as if Masood wasn’t known to police or intelligence services. So what happened?
Watch as I explain why he fell off the radar of intelligence agencies.
The cold reality is that Britain has an army of jihadists inside their own borders. This is no small feat, and no small problem so how do you deal with it?
There's no easy answer but one thing I can say is that they need to drop the kind of multiculturalism they currently practice and adopt a melting pot approach that demands those that want to be in Britain, accept British principles.
Britain can’t deport its Muslim population, they can’t stop this problem of 10K would-be jihadis by stopping immigration.
But maybe in the future they can stop it by ending the ghettoization, the no-go zones and embrace integration by standing up for the principles and values that made Britain Great Britain, in the first place.
