There’s just one catch: Zack Davies is a Muslim who calls himself Zak Ali, and who warned on his Facebook page on the morning of his attack in Tesco: “The wrath of Allah is about to come down upon the kaffir, I will have my revenge.” He also posted four Qur’an verses (identifying the suras as “books”) that call for violence against unbelievers:
The fact that Zak Ali is a Muslim who clearly believes in jihad against unbelievers doesn’t mean that this wasn’t a “white power” attack. As I have noted before, neo-Nazis have an affinity for Islam, based on their shared Jew-hatred. The British media, however, has not reported on the jihad aspect of this attack at all. Yet two reports strongly suggested that at least some British journalists know that the perpetrator was a Muslim, and are covering up that fact.
