London and the world is reeling from the video from yesterday of two Muslim men who killed and mutilated the body of an English soldier and then asked people to film them as they raved about their atrocity. The men reportedly screamed “Allah Akbar” as they butchered the soldier. A man now identified as Michael Adebolajo is shown promising onlookers that “you and your kids will be next.” In the midst of this horror scene however there was inspirational moments including a woman who gets off her bus to confront Abebolajo covered in blood and holding a meat cleaver.
In the disturbing video below, Abebolajo proclaims “The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers.” Of course, he did not have the courage to confront the soldier head on. He hit him with his car before butchering him and posing for YouTube. Abebolajo is shown telling viewers “Remove your governments – they don’t care about you. You think David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start bursting our guns? You think politicians are going to die?”
He warns that more will die and “No, it’s going to be the average guy, like you, and your children. So get rid of them – tell them to bring our troops back so we can… so you can all live in peace.” Abebolajo is known by the Muslim name Mujahid. He adopts the same excuse used throughout the ages by those who use religion to justify their blood lust: “We swear by the almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone. We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
He then added a bizarre claim of regret . . . not for the murder of course but the women watching: “I apologise that women have had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you.”
It was in this disgusting scene of religious violence that a true representative stepped forward. She is mother-of-two Ingrid Loyau-Kennett and was on a bus when the scene unfolded. She got off the bus and, when others were walking by or cowering, she walked up to the killer and demanded that he stop.
One of the killers insisted “We want to start a war in London tonight,” but she replied calmly “Right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose.”
Yes they will Ingrid, but it is because for every grotesque monster like these two men, we have Ingrid Loyau-Kennett and human beings like her.
