Jihadi named in London attack, Islamic State claims responsibility

Why does the media have to stress that the killer was born in Great Britain? Does that make this maniac's terrorist ideology any less deadly?

From Reuters:
The attacker who killed three people near parliament in London before being shot dead was named on Thursday as British-born Khalid Masood, who was once investigated by MI5 intelligence officers over concerns about violent extremism.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement issued by its Amaq news agency, but did not name Masood and gave no details. It was not clear whether the attacker was directly connected to the jihadist group.

Police said Masood, 52, was born in the county of Kent in southeast England and was most recently living in the West Midlands region of central England.

The FakeNews outlets are trying to downplay the problem of Islamic immigration, therefore they tout this terrorist as native born. That still leave the problem of radical Islam which they don't want to emphasize.
