The man suspected in the 2017 terrorist attack on London Bridge, which killed five people, had a grudge against both President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May, his children told British authorities.
Khalid Masood's children told British counter-terrorism officials that the 52-year-old English teacher had previously called May a "liar" and "sick," while frequently complaining about the "racism and rudeness" presented by Trump, NBC News reported Wednesday.
Police statements indicated that Masood texted religious writings to a number of friends before he allegedly carried out the attack, which began with the striking of pedestrians on London Bridge and ended with the stabbing of an unarmed police officer. But Masood's ex-girlfriend stated that she was surprised to hear that he claimed to be religious.
"Adrian was vile," his ex-girlfriend said in a statement read in court, using Masood's given name, Adrian Elms. "He was controlling, violent, obsessive, intelligent and narcissistic. I am amazed he was religious. I honestly believe this was a front, an excuse to hurt people. He will have loved the attention and fear that he caused."
"They'll say I'm a terrorist. I'm not," Masood reportedly told his mother days before the attack, according to the report.
The woman added that Masood once grabbed her by the neck and threatened to strangle her, adding that he would rape her mother if she told authorities, NBC reports.
His children, however, added to Scotland Yard investigator Dan Brown that "[Masood] thought he was going to die fighting for God," according to the news report.
Masood died at the scene of the attack last year, and police have said there is no evidence that he carried out the attack with the assistance of others.
Last year saw a 23 percent decrease in the total number of reported terror attacks around the globe over 2016, with the largest decrease being attributed to a drop in violence in Iraq, according to the U.S. State Department.
Trump is the problem.
We have to get rid of Trump.
The only way to stop terrorism is to do what the terrorists want.
Capitulation will be our salvation.
Islam is a cancer.
What is the court proceding for since the terrorist is dead?
Terrorist sounds like any another MSNBC host.
Adrian was vile,” his ex-girlfriend said in a statement read in court, using Masood’s given name, Adrian Elms. “He was controlling, violent, obsessive, intelligent and narcissistic..
In other words, a darned near perfect muzzie.
Funny the similarities between UK Islamic terrorists and our own CIA chief.
Coronial Inquest - routine in the UK for any death that is potentially suspicious which by law includes any death where police were involved.
[Adrian was vile, his ex-girlfriend said in a statement read in court, using Masoods given name, Adrian Elms. He was controlling, violent, obsessive, intelligent and narcissistic..]
A perfect addition to British society. Cultural enrichment and all that.
“Religious texts.” Kill people.
Yeah, it all adds up.
I am sure my definition of religious, and a Muzzies definition of religious, are light years apart.
So his logic was that he’d fight racism by murdering people utterly unrelated to Trump? People who probably didn’t like Trump either? Hm. Okay. Guess I want LOTS more people like him coming to live amongst us.
That's an excellent line!
Oh, well! A muslime who hates Donald Trump! That’s enough to convince ME!
We may never know his true motive
Meanwhile, we’re the deplorables, right?
I lived in the UK for several years in the seventies. I loved it as my second nation of alligence. I visit it every few years to see friends. My last trip was to London showed that London is no longer UK. The vast majority of those in commerce are not of UK origin nor belief in the UK as it once was. It is mostly Arab and East European. The Arab portion have mostly no desire to become part of the English culture. The East Europeans do.
The UK is lost, and this saddens me greatly! A once great nation is crumbling to destruction via political correctness.
Their great cathedrals and castles will be there for many hundreds of years in the future. The culture of the English will be gone.
I can no longer fight on a field of battle due to age, but I am still a hell of a sniper. In my youth in England I would have defended that nation as it was my nation also. I can no longer say this. I refuse to fight for a nation that has chosen suicide.
If his birth name was Adrian Elms, that indicates that he was a convert.
