Just remember how President Trump was vilified by including Libya in the temporary (and very limited in scope) migration ban.
For those who were skeptical of Trump’s migration ban, If they have at least a shred of intellectual honesty left, they might want to rethink their irrational position.
The jihadi clan: Is Manchester bomber’s family part of global terror network? Killer is linked to Paris and Brussels attackers, his Libyan rebel father is an al-Qaeda supporter and brother ‘was plotting own ISIS atrocity’
- Salman Abedi had returned from Libya just days before launching suicide bomb attack at Manchester Arena
- Mancunian of Libyan descent ‘made regular visits’ to North African country and ‘had secret terror training’
- Abedi killed 22 after detonating a suicide bomb at Manchester Arena on Monday after Ariana Grande concert
- Younger brother Hashem accused of having known about Salman’s murderous plans for more than a month
- His father had been a revolutionary fighter who publicly voiced support for an Al Qaeda-linked group in Syria
- Greater Manchester police have said it is ‘very clear’ they are investigating ‘a network’ linked to the bomber
- Nine people arrested as part of the inquiry into the atrocity – including Salman’s two brothers and father

The family of the Manchester suicide bomber have links to terror networks around the world, it was revealed last night.
Salman Abedi, who killed 22 people and injured at least 119, had possible links between the Manchester Arena atrocity and the Paris and Brussels terror attacks, detectives have said.
One theory is Abedi may have been part of a larger cell that included Mohamed Abrini, the ‘Man in the Hat’, with connections to the mass murders in Paris and Brussels. Abrini is known to have visited Manchester in 2015.
His father Ramadan and younger brother Hashem were in custody in Libya last night after being arrested by counter-terror police. Detectives said Hashem had links to ISIS and was planning to carry out a terror attack in Tripoli.
Hashem was accused of having known about his brother’s murderous plans for more than a month, while it emerged his father had been a revolutionary fighter against Gaddafi who publicly voiced support for an Al Qaeda-linked group in Syria.
A third relative, Abedi’s older brother Ismail, was arrested in Manchester. It is not known what his involvement, if any, was. He was once reported to a counter- terrorism unit after concerns were raised by members of the Muslim community.
Last night, attention focused on how the bomber had been allowed to slip through the net. Key warnings about his descent into jihadism were apparently overlooked.
Yesterday it was alleged that two calls about his conduct had been made to a police anti-terror hotline and that his family had repeatedly raised concerns he was ‘dangerous’.
