The "Manchester model” of reporting victims of war, | The Canary

From the link... look at how many times we read or hear reports that the United States has bombed a wedding party or a funeral. And there is never a description of, well, ‘who was the bride, who was the groom’, you know, ‘who were the people that were killed and what were their dreams’. We hear nothing about any of these people that are killed, with our tax dollars, in our name.

We need a tough response to terror | Simon Jenkins in The Guardian

From the linkWhen accused of seeking political capital from terrorist outrages, politicians explain that their job is to “express public outrage and show that something is being done”. That is cynical. Mancunians this week expressed grief, not outrage. A leader’s job is to allay rather than promote public anxiety. It is to minimise rather than propagate the impact of an incident.

... There was murmured talk of states of emergency and of suspended election campaigns. Armed troops were deployed in British cities. Parliament is shut down. Buckingham Palace’s guard is not changed. This is a statist response on a par with Tony Blair’s deployment of Scimitar tanks to Heathrow in 2003 as a “deterrent to terrorism.” The sole consequence was an instant, multimillion-pound hit to the tourist industry.

Salman Abedi wasn't a lone wolf — he was a known wolf, and the Muslim community tried to warn us about him | The Independent

Muddassar Ahmed asks some important questions about the British government's commitment to preventing terrorist outrages.

From the linkLet it not be said that Muslims didn’t cooperate with the authorities to report Abedi. Abedi flew a black Jihadi flag out of his window in Manchester. He was banned from his mosque. His Imam reported him. His family reported him. His friends reported him. He wasn’t a lone wolf – he was a known wolf. But MI5 didn’t stop him. Not because they didn’t want to: because they are being run on a shoestring, while Whitehall spends taxpayers’ money on propping up friends in Libya.

... do the victims’ families have a right to an explanation of why the warnings were not heard?

The alleged suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, was part of an extremist group, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, that thrived in Manchester and was cultivated and used by MI5 for more than 20 years.

The LIFG is proscribed by Britain as a terrorist organisation which seeks a “hardline Islamic state” in Libya and “is part of the wider global Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by al-Qaida”.

The “smoking gun” is that when Theresa May was Home Secretary, LIFG jihadists were allowed to travel unhindered across Europe and encouraged to engage in “battle”: first to remove Mu’ammar Gadaffi in Libya, then to join al-Qaida affiliated groups in Syria.
