Six of the eight terrorist plotters who were jailed along with London Bridge attacker Usman Khan in 2012 have also been freed from prison, it has emerged.

The nine jihadists were members of an al-Qaeda-inspired cell which plotted to blow up the London Stock Exchange and kill Boris Johnson.

One is still in prison, another was convicted for a further terror plot and Khan is dead – leaving six back on the streets, it is believed. …

Khan was released in December 2018 after serving half of his fixed sentence – and the other two have also been freed, The Sun on Sunday reported. …

Another plotter, Mohibur Rahman, was jailed again in 2017 for plotting a ‘Lee Rigby-style’ terror attack against the police or military.

Easy immigration laws, easy on terrorists, look the other way on the Rotherham etc. rapes. What is going on? It’s almost as if the British Government was run by people who wanted to harm and replace the native population.

One of the victims was a “prison reformer” academic. Oh the irony. By Ian Gallagher.

In a cruel irony, [25 year old London Bridge terror attack victim Jack Merritt] was killed at a criminology event by one of the convicts he was trying to rehabilitate: 28-year-old terrorist Usman Khan, who was shot dead by police after killing two and injuring three on Friday.

Mr Merritt believed that Khan’s apparent redemption was a powerful case study of how a life could be changed for the better, but it now appears his rehabilitation was a sham intended to hide his murderous intentions.

Yesterday tributes poured in for Mr Merritt, a Cambridge University graduate who was hailed by his father as a ‘beautiful spirit who always took the side of the underdog’. …

At the time of his death he was working as course co-ordinator for a Cambridge criminology department initiative called Learning Together, in which students in universities and prisons ‘learn degree-level material alongside one another’.

The Koran specifically approves of Muslims lying to non-Muslims to advance the cause of Islam. This is another unique feature of Islam that the other religions do not have — the premier example, of course, being the death penalty for leaving Islam.

Are any of our PC ruling class going to learn anything from this? Almost certainly not. It’s prohibited in their social circles. They would lose their friends and professional standing if they said anything.

UPDATE: James Delingpole:

Ordinary people have had enough. This was the clear message from social media yesterday. People were overwhelmingly jubilant that a vicious killer had been taken down quickly and ruthlessly with what sounded — from the much-shared video footage — like two head shots. My suspicion is that the general public are way, way to the right of almost all politicians on this issue. The political class … is still more eager to persuade us that radical Islam isn’t a threat than it is to take serious measures to protect us from it. But the public’s evident impatience — and obvious desire for tougher measures — is a sign that this complacency will not last. …

There is still no appetite in the British Establishment to deal comprehensively with the home-grown Muslim terrorist threat. This is clear at almost every level  … Look at how concertedly our political class — with the collusion of the media, especially the BBC — sought to play down the Manchester Arena bombing when young girls were quite deliberately targeted, and crippled or killed by a Muslim suicide bomber. Nothing has changed since. … The current, unwritten policy is — ‘Let’s accept a few terrorist deaths are going to happen now and again. Better this than to take any condign measures that might be deemed Islamophobic.’ Till then, we are on our own.  …

To understand whence this stupidity emanates, you only have to look at how the left responded to the attack. Useless London mayor Sadiq Khan — the one who once famously said that terrorist attacks are just part and parcel of living in the big city — opportunistically seized the chance to blame it on Tory police cuts. Various Corbynista loons sought to claim that it was a false flag operation, probably staged by the Conservative party’s dark arts department to help Boris Johnson steal the general election. Some complained about the police’s alleged shoot-to-kill policy (apparently in the belief that terrorists wearing suicide vests in crowded streets should just be left to calm down a bit before the police can just move in and arrest them). Others, like Times commentator David Aaronovitch, took the opportunity to direct their ire at the real villains of yesterday’s stabbing frenzy: yup, all those right-wing types who think Britain needs its own Second Amendment.

Brendan O’Neil:

That [Islamist killer Usman] Khan was out of jail on licence is quite disturbing. …  He was a traitor to his country, a man who was born here and yet who plotted to unleash violent jihadism on his fellow citizens, whom he referred to as ‘kuffars’ and ‘dogs’. … He genuinely believed in pursuing a holy war against disgusting, dog-like Britons. It was decided that he should never be released until it was clearly agreed that he no longer posed a threat to the public, but, following an appeal, this ‘condition was later lifted’, as the Guardian reports. He was released on licence in December last year. And yesterday he murdered two people.
