Taimur Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, Stockholm Suicide Bomber, Was Living in Britain

At London's Telegraph:
An Islamic suicide bomber who attacked Christmas shoppers in Sweden at the weekend is a British university graduate and was living in this country until two weeks ago.

Taimur Abdulwahab al-Abdaly tried to set off a car bomb packed with gas canisters in a busy shopping street in Stockholm. The car caught fire and the bomber fled the scene before blowing himself up 300yd away 15 minutes later, injuring two bystanders.

It emerged last night that Abdulwahab, who was due to turn 29 yesterday, is a former physical therapy student at Bedfordshire University in Luton, and that his wife and three young children still live in the town.

MI5 is now investigating possible links with extremists in Luton, whether the bomber was radicalised at the university and claims that he was helped by an extremist group in Yemen, the base for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
And more from Atlas Shrugs, "Facebook Memorial Page for Sweden Jihad Bomber." And at Legal Insurrection, "All Swedes Are Malmö Jews Now":
Make no mistake about it, the Islamists do not operate in a vacuum; they operate with the connivance or at least tolerance of the anti-Israel left.
No doubt.

Anti-Israel left? Hmm, but as a Christian you DO believe that all Jews will be going to Hell, right? That's what the new testament says...

And they operate freely in a west that remains stubbornly ignorant of their true intentions, no matter how clearly they display them.

Regardless of what happens, Europe insists on believing that "Islam means peace," and "jihad is a non-violent personal struggle."

Nothing could be further from the truth. "Reliance of the Traveller" the authorized English translation of Islamic law is an eye-opener. "Jihad means to make war on unbelievers." That's the law, and it transcends any national constitution or international treaty, none of which, incidentally, Muslims are bound to obey, since they are subject only to Shariah law, regardless of the country in which they happen to be living.

Europe, where I live, is asleep, and may be lost. I hope America awakens before it's too late.

PS A name like Abdulwahab (slave of Wahab) - as in the Wahabi school that believes in setting the clock back 700 years - should have been the first clue that this was a guy worth keeping an eye on, but that would be profiling, wouldn't it?
