Is there anything left to say about Aaron Driver, the would-be homegrown jihadist now en route to meet his maker? There is indeed an epilogue for the sorry saga of the Strathroy bomber and it has to do with what to do with his corpse.
It was curious that the London Muslim Mosque was anxious to offer Arron Driver a respectful burial in accordance with Islamic protocol despite making it clear in a news release that they had “ideological differences” with him.
Ideological differences? Driver was a wannabe terrorist and ISIS supporter who planned to massacre people at a London mall. Had he not been killed by law enforcement in a sting operation, who knows how many innocent lives he would have taken?
Why would the mosque want him to have a proper Muslim funeral? If I was a law-abiding Muslim who rejects terrorism, I wouldn’t want my mosque anywhere near such trash.
This situation brought to mind the hoops the Obama administration went through when disposing of the body of the man responsible for almost 3,000 American deaths on 9/11, Osama Bin Laden.
Watch as I offer my ideas about what we should do the next time we have to dispose of the corpse of a jihadi.
This isn’t about revenge, but rather, a method of psychological warfare that might make a soldier of Allah think twice about who he’ll meet in the afterlife post martyrdom.
