What is very telling about this is the 'ambush' nature of the attack. This man was smilingly, politely deceived and then lynched. His attackers morphed within seconds from apparent politeness, to a terrifying, cold-bloodedly murderous mob. I am reminded of the line Hugh Fitzgerald likes to quote, about 'smilers with the knife under the cloak". I am reminded also of something that was said by a Muslim jihadist in the USA, Tarek Shah, to someone he was with, whom he did not know was an informant taking notes: "I could be joking and smiling, and cutting their throats in the next second". Tarek Shah played jazz in his spare time, when he was not plotting jihad. Would any of those who heard Tarek Shah playing jazz, have *believed* that this 'nice', joking, smiling musician dreamed of slitting their Infidel throats?
From the article, "when I look back on it now, what surprises me is how disarmingly polite my attackers were".
He has just experienced the sheer psychopathy that Islam inculcates. How many other people down through the ages have fallen through the same trapdoor into hell - as the lying, smiling mask melted away in seconds, replaced by a roaring cataract of demonic hate - and not lived to tell the tale?
I would dearly like to know who the 'man' was who interrupted the lynching. It is very difficult to believe that the rescuer was a Muslim; unless, perhaps, he was a MINO with a modicum of shame, or at least enough sense to realize that however powerful Muslims may have become in certain parts of London, the murder of a non-Muslim reporter by a gang of Muslims in a quiet street in London in broad daylight is not going to be covered up, and is not exactly going to make the Ummah look good.
"Disarmingly polite". Every non-Muslim politician, every non-Muslim who has encountered so many sweetly-smiling, nice, even obsequious Muslims, should remember this reporter's story, and Tarek Shah's offhand, bone-chilling sociopathic boast.
