The
knife-wielding terrorist who was subdued by civilians, then shot dead
by police on London Bridge on Friday was a paroled bomb plotter who
once hoped to start a jihadist training camp in Kashmir — and whose
fellow Islamists admired Hitler and downplayed the Holocaust. At the
time of Friday’s attack, Pakistan native Usman Khan, 28, had been
free a year after serving just half of a 16-year sentence for
plotting with eight others in 2010 to bomb such London landmarks as
the stock exchange, American embassy, and Westminster Abbey. He was
still wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet when he went berserk
with two long knives after speaking about his own “rehabilitation”
during a Cambridge University-sponsored criminal justice conference
in London, killing two and injuring three. Back in 2010, he and his
fellow, al-Quaeda-inspired jihadists fundraised and recruited for a
terror camp Khan, at 19 the youngest in the group, hoped to build on
his family’s land in Kashmir, CNN reported.
