London police recently announced the arrest of a third suspect in the subway bombing earlier this month that terrorized commuters in a Southwest London train station.
The cowardly attack injured 30 people and cost millions in damages and security costs.
As the perpetrators are rounded up, it has become clear that they are all foreign Muslim “refugees”. But another disturbing aspect of the case has come to light.
At least one of the suspects was apparently raised by foster parents Penelope and Ronald Jones. The elderly couple was honored by the Queen for housing foster “children” from Iraq and Syria in their quiet suburban home.
Some of the men currently living at the home are 18 years old. One of them was seen on video before the subway attack, carrying a white bucket that matches the one used for the homemade bomb.
Investigators now believe the bomb was intended to release toxic chemical gas, rather than shrapnel, making the attack even more heinous.
The case raises the question – who is to blame when these young terrorists eventually go on the attack? Should the couple who brought them into England share in the responsibility? What about the government officials who rubber stamped the whole thing?
But a more serious question is this: if these young men can be radicalized to hate their hosts so much, even after all the kindness and compassion they have been shown, then where is the failure in the system?
