Father Of Manchester Bomber Says His Son Was “Normal” During Last Conversation
According to Manchester Arena suicide bomber Salman Ramadan Abedi’s father, Ramadan Abedi, “We don’t believe in killing innocents”. That leads to two questions, who is “we”? Because clearly Salman believed in killing innocents. Also, is that to say it’s ok to kill “guilties”?
In either event, Salman’s father spoke to DailyMail and insists that the 22 year old who killed 22 and injured 119 was not raised to be a maniacal murderer.
British authorities and armed soldiers have arrested 4 other people in connection to the bombing and they are convinced that Salman was not a “lone wolf”, that he was part of a larger terrorist cell. One of those arrested was Salman’s brother, Ismail.
Refuting claims that the love of Allah and the Quran lead Salman on his bloody quest, friends of young man say he was never much of a practicing Muslim:
‘None of them were your typical Salafis or religious or extremists. No religion was involved,’ a schoolmate said. A year ago, all of this changed when the killer started hanging out with ‘people I hadn’t seen before.’
‘It was like a turning-point,’ he told MailOnline. ‘He suddenly started hanging out with people I’d never seen before and not his old friends anymore.’
It appears that both his family and friends had sort of lost track of what was going on in Salman’s life. They all sound a bit clueless as to his real thoughts and feelings about the life he was living.
Salman is said to have recently returned from a 3-week stay in Libya and his father says he was scheduled to visit Saudi Arabia soon.
This whole thing is crazy and we suspect more and more information about Salman and his terrorist ties will become more evident by the day if not the hour.
