London Attacker Is Khalid Masood, 52-Year-Old Brit With Prior Criminal Convictions

Tyler Durden's picture

After yesterday's snafu, in which the London attacker was incorrectly named as an Islamic "hate preacher" who however turned out to be in prison at the time of the attack, moments ago UK police said that the man they believe to be responsible for the terrorist attack in Westminster yesterday has been formally identified as Khalid Masood.

Masood, aged 52 (Dec 25, 1964), was born in Kent and detectives believe he was most recently living in the West Midlands. Masood was also known by a number of aliases. Masood was not the subject of any current investigations and there was no prior intelligence about his intent to mount a terrorist attack.

However, as the Telegraph reports, he was known to police and has a range of previous convictions for assaults, including GBH, possession of offensive weapons and public order offences. His first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage and his last conviction was in December 2003 for possession of a knife. He has not been convicted for any terrorism offences.

More details from the Police statement:

Masood was not the subject of any current investigations and there was no prior intelligence about his intent to mount a terrorist attack.

Sure, they grabbed a criminal pATSY and laid it all on him.

It was an Israeli False FLAG.

"London Attacker Is Khalid Masood"

... Sadiq Khan, London's first Muslim mayor (in one his regular attempts to downplay the religion-of-peace's terrorist agenda) says, the attack is “part and parcel of living in a big city.” >>>

"Terror attacks are 'part and parcel of living in a big city', claims London mayor Sadiq Khan
• Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, is on a tour of New York and Chicago
• He was in Manhattan on Saturday when a bomb went off on 23rd Street
• Mr Khan said: 'We have got to be prepared for these sorts of things'"


... ah, bloody shit ... no worries then ...

Can't be bad-mouthing the "honourable" Mayors' voting base.  Guess who?:

"By 2010, with increasing grassroots popularity among highly organized Islamists and fundamentalists, but carrying the burden of the Labour Party’s War on Terror record, Khan’s bid to get re-elected in his home-base of South London’s Tooting was facing challenges from another Muslim. For unlike the Labour Party, this Muslim’s party had opposed the invasion of Iraq.

Khan’s rival was Liberal Democrat Nasser Butt. Liberal Democrat opposition to the Iraq war posed a serious challenge to Khan and his Muslim power base in Tooting. British South Asian Muslims—myself included—overwhelmingly opposed that war. “Luckily” for Khan, Nasser happened to be an Ahmadi Muslim. Yes, this is as relevant as Sadiq Khan being a Sunni Muslim. In other words not at all, in a perfect world. Alas, Khan’s world was far from perfect. Ahmedis are perhaps the most persecuted minority sects among Sunni Muslims.

Khan knew this, and yet this fact didn’t stop his campaign working closely with Tooting Mosque to stir up anti-Ahmedi sectarian hatred in order to secure the Sunni vote for his victory. For many of my fellow Sunni Muslims Nasser Butt being an Ahmedi was a doctrinal “offence” for which he was personally responsible, while Khan was too junior of an MP at that time to have much to do with the invasion of Iraq. By now, Khan’s religious writing was clearly on the mosque wall."

The night before the attack, someone on 4chan posted the location of the attack, in morse code:

 London Attacker Is Khalid Masood, 52-Year-Old Brit With Prior Criminal Convictions

Yup, as a longtime UK resident I can confirm it: "Khalid" is definitely a traditional Brit name.

HowdyDoody's picture

Of course he wasn't a true Brit. He never had sex with a dead pig.

DaNuts's picture

FIVE people were killed, including the attacker, and around 29 others were injured. Among those injured were people from Ireland, America South Korea, Romania, France, Poland and Germany.

It looks like Khalid was just another pissed off Brit wondering how his country was being taken over by foreigners.

847328_3527's picture

It's the victims' fault---they were not wearing the [trademarked] "Do not kill me" neon green bracelets nor were they wearing the "Do not attack me" bright red ones. The bracelets are available at the Koln Ebay web site for a resonable price. AND, they are BOGO if you claim you have already been attacked, raped or beaten by a rapefugees. The BOGO discount is a way for Kohl to empathize with the victims of immigrant voiolence.

They asked for it.

No worries, Teresa May took leadership on this and said it wasn't Islamic.

Hopefully, no feelings were hurt, because that would just be horrible.

Recall how she was opposed to Brexit and said it was a bad idea. This week she is triggering article 50. Her principles consist of licking her finger an holding it in the air.

She's confirmed there'll be no wavering, which I thought was very impressive.

In the UK they call middle eastern people Aisan , I have no clue why.

Turkey traditionally Asia Minor. East of there considered Asia. Some would consider anything East of Bosporus as Asia.

Please study an encyclopedia and then define the 5 global continents. Asia starts at the Bosphorous. It's called geography. And who, may I ask, are "we"?

True Blue's picture

There are seven (7) continents dumbass; its called geography. Also, unless "it" owns something, it does not get an apostrophe. Its called grammar.

Indians, Persians and the large portions of the Middle East they ruled.

Katie Hopkins on the debacle:

They stood in the centre of Brussels. Row on row.

Hands held high, making hearts to the heavens. Showing the slaughtered they were not forgotten. Reminding themselves they were here with love. Looking to show humanity wins. That love conquers all.

They lay in the centre of London, face down where they fell. Stabbed by a knife, rammed with a car, flung, broken, into the Thames, life bleeding out on the curb.

And the news came thick and fast.

A car rammed deliberately into pedestrians on the bridge. Ten innocents down.

A police officer stabbed at the House of Commons. Confirmed dead.

Another woman now, dead at the scene.

Shots fired. An Asian man rushed to hospital.

A woman, plucked from the water.

And I grew colder. And more tiny.

No anger for me this time. No rage like I’ve felt before. No desperate urge to get out there and scream at the idiots who refused to see this coming.

Not even a nod for the glib idiots who say this will not defeat us, that we will never be broken, that cowardice and terror will not get the better of Britain.

Because, as loyal as I am, as patriotic as I am, as much as my whole younger life was about joining the British military and fighting for my country — I fear we are broken.

Not because of this ghoulish spectacle outside our own Parliament. Not because of the lives rammed apart on the pavement, even as they thought about what was for tea. Or what train home they might make.


But because this is us now.

This is our country now.

This is what we have become.

To this, we have been reduced.

Because all the while those forgiving fools in Brussels stood with their stupid hands raised in hearts to the sky, another mischief was in the making. More death was in the pipeline.


As the last life-blood of a police officer ran out across the cobbles, the attacker was being stretchered away in an attempt to save his life.

London is a city so desperate to be seen as tolerant, no news of the injured was released. No clue about who was safe or not.

Liberals convince themselves multiculturalism works because we all die together, too.

An entire city of monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Blind. Deaf. And dumb.


Immersed in a seething pit of hatred, hidden in pockets of communities plagued by old animosities and ancient strife.

These people may have left their lands. But they have brought every tension, every conflict, every bit of fight here with them.

The Afghans hate the Somalias who loathe the Eritreans. As it was before, it is now. London is a city of ghettos behind a thin veneer of civility kept polished by a Muslim mayor whose greatest validation is his father's old job.

Son-of-a-bus-driver Sadiq.

I see him now, penning a missive about how London is a beautiful and tolerant city, how we are united by shared values and understanding, and how we will not be cowed by terror.

Sure enough, there he was, saying exactly that, just now. Fool.

Even as mothers text to check their children are safe. Including my own, worrying about me as I sit overlooking the scene, feeling fearful of this place where monsters lurk and steal lives away in an instant. For nothing.

I would ask Sadiq to stop talking. Empty words. Meanwhile, banning pictures of women in bikinis on the Underground. How does that help?

Please, no hashtag, no vigil, no tea lights. I am begging you not to light up Parliament in the colours of the Union.

Because we are not united. We are wrenched asunder.

The patriots of the rest of England versus the liberals in this city. The endless tolerance to those who harm us, (while the Home Office tries to shift the focus of public fear to white terror) — versus the millions like me who face the truth, with worried families and hopeless hearts, who feel the country sinking.

We are taken under the cold water by this heavy right foot in the south, a city of lead, so desperately wedded to the multicultural illusion that it can only fight those who love the country the most, blame those who are most proud to be British, and shout racist at the 52%.

This place is just like Sweden. Terrified of admitting the truth about the threat we face, about the horrors committed by the migrants we failed to deter — because to admit that we are sinking, and fast, would be to admit that everything the liberals believe is wrong.

That multiculturalism has not worked. That it is one big fat failure and one big fat lie.

President Erdogan of Turkey said there is a war being waged between the crescent and the cross. But he is wrong. Because the cross is not strong. We are down on bended knee, a doormat to be trodden on, a joke only funny to those that wish us harm.

The war is between London and the rest of the country. Between the liberals and the right-minded. Between those who think it is more important to tip-toe around the cultures of those who choose to join us, rather than defend our own culture.


Katie Hopkins says these incidents are no longer unusual, but commonplace

How many more times?

And how many more attacks must pass before we acknowledge these are no longer the acts of ‘extremists’? That there is no safe badge with which to hold these people at arm’s length, in the way the liberals casually use the term 'far-right' for anyone who has National pride.

These events are no longer extreme. They are commonplace. Every day occurrences.

These people are no longer extremists. They are simply more devout. More true to their beliefs. Beliefs which will be supported endlessly across our state broadcaster for the next few months until we buy into the narrative that one religion is not to blame.

That in fact we should blame Brexit supporters. For believing in a Britain. As it was before.

Anything but the truth.

This is why there is no anger from me this time, no rage. No nod for those who pretend we will not be cowed, even as they rush home to text their mum they are safe. No surprise that the city of which I was so proud is now punctured by fear, and demarcated even more formally by places we cannot tread; there were always parts in which a white woman could not safely walk.

Now I feel only sadness, overwhelming sadness.

I will walk over the river tonight and look to the Thames, to the Union flag lowered at half mast, and the Parliament below, and I will wonder, just how much longer we can go on like this.

Political theatre, 'til proven otherwise.

At this point there's little "proof," just a story. 

And people love stories if it fits their preconceived notions.

flapdoodle's picture

The number 322 is very important to the illuminati/Deep State (as is the number 7 if you believe the Witch that runs the IMF). The warning that a false flag was likely 22 Mar was on MANY conspiracy WWW sites.

The question of course, is who was really behind this false flag? My own theory is that the US portion of the Deep State has been laying low (no real FFs in the US since late January) since the Donald took office (until they can pwn him to doing the Deep State's bidding). So who is the real winner with this??

Does May have an enabling act waiting in the wings?

See the down votes to my post above? 

People are DV'ing my call for simple "proof."  Ya know, evidence.

An MSM report is NOT proof, especially these days.  It just "looks" like it could be true.

Are people this stupid?  Are we just f#ckin' herd animals?
