Sweden suicide bomber was British university graduate

The suicide bomber who blew himself up yesterday was an Iraqi man who graduated from a British university. Whitehall sources confirm that Taimour-Al-Abdaly, a 28-year-old man who lived in southern Sweden, was the owner of the car that exploded in central Stockholm last night. His Facebook profile lists him as having studied a BSc in sports therapy at the University of Bedfordshire in 2004.

Swedish police confirmed that the two explosions that killed one person and injured two more, causing panic among Christmas shoppers, were a terrorist attack.

They said last night's explosions were the result of "terror crimes". "We are investigating this as terror crimes according to Swedish law. We are still investigating the case. In this situation, we have not raised the security [threat] level," police spokesman Anders Thornberg said.

The Swedish foreign minister, Carl Bildt, said in a message on Twitter: "Most worrying attempt at terrorist attack in crowded part of central Stockholm. Failed – but could have been truly catastrophic."

A Swedish news agency said it had received an email warning before the blasts in which a threat was made against Sweden's population, linked to the country's military presence in Afghanistan and the five-year-old case of caricatures of the prophet Muhammad by Swedish artist Lars Vilks.

The TT agency said the email, which contained audio files in Swedish and Arabic, was also sent to Sweden's security police and was received 10 minutes before the blasts.

The first explosion caused panic in the busy street of Drottninggatan at around 4.50pm local time when a car containing gas canisters burst into flames, causing minor injuries to two people.

Sweden's Aftonbladet newspaper reported that the man was carrying pipe bombs, as well as a backpack full of nails, although this has not been confirmed by the authorities.

28, male, middle easterner, upset over the wars and cartoons of Mohammed, so he turns to suicide bombing jihad.

All that subsidized tuition; up in smoke. No wonder they’re tripling tuition at British universities.

These savages need to be purged from western civilization. Soon, we too will have to deal with these maniacs on our own soil.

What happened in Texas will be repeated, and with each new attack from them our freedoms will become more and more circumscribed and ye we will be no safer.

Will liberals and secularists never learn that education doesn't change moral or religious values for most people?

It only makes the criminal or fanatic smarter.

The quality of the degree is low. What did he learn from those years of study? Regression to barbarism. Now thats a success story with a real future!

Those who have orchestrated the destruction of the US economy went to better schools, and never needed a bomb.

Probably angry because he paid to study something useless like “Gay and Transgender studies,” “Art Therapy” or “conflict resolution.”

Muslim woman with 8 kids living in Government supplied $4.2 million London Council House

near Paul McCartney,

costing $11,000 a month paid for by the Socialist Welfare State.....................

says “Life in Britain is great” !!!

Ya think???

And then she gets an additional $16,000 in cash each year more, in “benefits”!!!

Wow.

and again, “Why work when I can get $64,000 in benefits a year AND drive a Mercedes, a van, and have a 42 inch TV?”

The Davey family’s $1,250 -a-week state handouts pay for a four-bedroom home, top-of-the-range mod cons and two vehicles including a Mercedes people carrier.!!!
Father-of-seven Peter gave up work because he could make more living on benefits.!
Yet he and his wife Claire are still not happy with their lot.
With an eighth child on the way, they are demanding a bigger house, courtesy of the taxpayer.

Yes, demanding! Isn’t life great in Great Britain???
