What We Know About Falsely Named London Attacker, Abu Izzadeen
March 22nd, 2017 | Poletical News
The London attacker has been falsely identified as Abu Izzadeen by up to seven mainstream news organizations in Europe. The UK's Channel 4 originally set the internet ablaze by reporting Izzadeen as the attacker who drove a car through a London crowd, killing 3 and injuring dozens.
Izzadeen is reportedly in prison.
Izzadeen was known to police for having links to terrorism and posting videos on YouTube that glorify terrorism.
Izzadeen had spent time in prison for fundraising for terror groups and inciting violence.
Izzadeen converted to Islam in 1993 at the age of 18.
Izzadeen met with radical islamists, Omar Bakri Muhammed and Abu Hamza al-Misri not long before he was radicalized.
Izzadeen once interrupted a speech by the UK's home secretary, John Reid, calling Reid an "enemy of Islam".
This has been yet another example of a growing trend in false reporting by certified, legitimate journalists.
