- Former Labor Justice Minister Maria Eagle stated that Saadallah was “reported as being of interest to the security services as a potential terrorist sympathiser and was released well before the end of his sentence from a prison – a mere 16 days before this murderous rampage took place.”
- His cousin claims that Saadallah converted to Christianity. But of course Christianity doesn’t preach “strike them upon the necks” (Quran 8:12). Other family members, including his mom, say “he had a privileged upbringing in a wealthy suburb of Tripoli, where he attended private school, enjoyed regular holidays and went to summer camps.” It also emerged that Khairi Saadallah’s brother had pictures promoting jihad, and called Brits “dogs” and “children of haram.” This turned up at twitter:
More about Khairi Saadallah:
- He was on “MI5’s radar in 2019 over intelligence that he may have wanted to travel out of the UK to wage jihad abroad.” There must have been a reason to conclude that he “may” have wanted to wage jihad abroad, a reason that is being concealed.
- Khairi Saadallah had boasted to friends in the UK that he had fought as a child soldier to overthrow Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. Yes, “boasted.” This happy, privileged, wealthy Muslim was proud to boast about being a child soldier. It is also known that “Islamic militants” were at war with Muammar Gaddafi.
- Saadallah was also deemed to be “mentally ill.” That’s become a popular fallback to describe many jihadists. By Western standards, anyone going on a stabbing spree is deemed “psychotic.” But only jihadists are motivated by religious doctrine. So far, nothing is being mentioned about doctrine with regard to Khairi Saadallah’s stabbing spree, nor are British authorities likely to discuss this no matter what they uncover.
So then, who really is Khairi Saadallah?
Conclusion: he was raised a happy, privileged, wealthy Muslim. He was known to M15. He MAY have wanted to be a jihadist fighting abroad. He has mental problems and boasted about being a child soldier, but then may have converted to Christianity. He was “of interest to the security services as a potential terrorist sympathiser,” and was part of a government deradicalization program. Now that is schizophrenic.
“Police stopped Reading terror suspect A DAY before attack: Khairi Saadallah was found wandering the streets by mental health team after missing a check hours before he ‘killed three people’ as it emerges he was on government’s deradicalisation programme”, by David Barrett, Larisa Brown and Rebecca Camber, Daily Mail, June 23, 2020:
Police intercepted the Reading terror suspect on the street just hours before he allegedly went on the rampage, the Daily Mail can reveal.
A specialist mental health team was asked to search for Khairi Saadallah after officials failed to find him during a routine check at his home last Friday.
Later that evening, just before midnight, he was found on a street in Reading, sources disclosed.
Saadallah is believed to have then been taken home to his council flat in the south of the town – and just hours later is alleged to have stabbed three men to death as they sat in a local park, Forbury Gardens.
Several police and psychiatric nurses, known as a ‘street triage’ team run jointly by Thames Valley Police and the NHS, encountered the 25-year-old Libyan after an alert was raised as part of his psychiatric care, sources said.
It came as a former Labour justice minister revealed in the Commons that Saadallah had been released from prison just 16 days before being arrested over the terror attack.
Maria Eagle said: ‘The person who has been arrested suspected of these offences has been reported as being of interest to the security services as a potential terrorist sympathiser and was released well before the end of his sentence from a prison – a mere 16 days before this murderous rampage took place.’
Home Secretary Priti Patel said she was unable to comment given the police investigation, but it will raise further concerns that the authorities missed opportunities to prevent Saturday’s knife attacks.
