Um…Yes he was!
The mayor of Manchester says that Salman Abedi, the son of Libyan migrants who killed 22 people including children in the name of Allah, was actually not a Muslim.
Andy Burnham insisted people should not turn on the Muslim community in the aftermath of the Manchester terror attack.
Salman Abedi killed 22 people, including children as young as 8, when he detonated a suicide bomb outside the Manchester Arena on Monday night.
He was born and raised in Manchester to Libyan parents and worshipped in a mosque in Didsbury, not stopped going because the imam was speaking out against ISIS.
But the Mayor of Manchester insisted that this man was a terrorist who had nothing to do with Islam.
Speaking with Nick Ferrari on LBC, the mayor said Abedi was only a terrorist, not a Muslim, even though his Islam informed his terrorism.
