Headliner of the week was the Muslim terrorist attack on a pop concert in Manchester, England. The bomber blew himself up and took 22 others with him. That's the count as I go to tape here; over a hundred were injured, some critically, so the death count may be higher as you hear this.
The bomber was a 22-year-old Muslim, name of Salman Abedi, born in Britain to parents from Libya. Those parents had been settled in England as refugees from Colonel Gaddafy's government; so that's where the bomber was born, in England, 1994.

Many immigrants of course assimilate to American society … Many others, however, especially in the second and following generations, absimilate.
That's what Salman Abedi did: He absimilated, ending up hating the country that had taken in his parents. Read more >>
