London Terrorist Lived, Worked in Saudi Arabia

Saturday 25 March 2017
London Terrorist Lived, Worked in Saudi Arabia

Alwaght-The man who carried out a deadly terrorist attack in London last Wednesday had lived and worked in Saudi Arabia for several years.

A statement released late Friday by the Saudi Embassy in London said that Khalid Masood taught English in Saudi Arabia from November 2005 to November 2006 and again from April 2008 to April 2009.

The embassy said that he had a work visa. It said he returned for six days in March 2015 on a trip booked through an approved travel agent.

The Saudi Embassy said that he wasn’t tracked by the country’s security services and didn’t have a criminal record there. Before taking the name Masood, he was known as Adrian Elms. He was known for having a violent temper in England and had been convicted at least twice for violent crimes.

Masood drove his rented SUV across the crowded Westminster Bridge Wednesday, striking pedestrians. Then he jumped out and attacked police officer Keith Palmer, who was guarding Parliament, fatally stabbing him before being shot dead by police.

In all, he killed four people and left nearly 40 hospitalized, including some with what have been described as catastrophic injuries. ISIS Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.  It is believed Masood was indoctrinated with Wahhabi ideology while in Saudi Arabia which resulted in his extremist behavior. ISIS and other Takfiri terrorists follow the Wahhabi ideology which is the official religious dogma practiced and preached in Saudi Arabia.

Some of the deadliest terrorist attacks in the world have been carried out by Saudi citizens and people of other nationalities inspired by the extremist Wahhabi ideology.

Already Saudi Arabia is facing a $6 billion lawsuit by dozens of American insurance companies which are trying to hold Riyadh responsible for business and property damage caused by the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The lawsuit filed in the US District Court in Manhattan on Thursday is the latest effort to hold the kingdom accountable for the attacks which killed nearly 3,000 people -- mostly Americans -- and caused about $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage.
