Channel 4 visited a Muslim community in south Manchester to get their take on the Islamic terror attack that killed 23 people and injured 120 others. Viewers were immediately drawn to a woman wearing a full black veil with only her eyes visible.
The woman’s clothing had the word “love” emblazoned on it, but on closer inspection, the letters are made up of a machine gun and a hand grenade.
Asked by host Krishnan Guru-Murthy about her “reactions and feelings” in the aftermath of the horrific attack, the woman said she didn’t “need to prove anything”.
Asked if she thought there would be a backlash against Muslims, the woman responded that the backlash had “already started” and that “Islamophobia will probably rise now”.
Guru-Murthy then quizzed the woman on whether such “Islamophobia” will cause young Muslim men to feel more “isolated”.
“What do you think? I mean, obviously hate with hate, people will retaliate obviously,” she responded.
Other Muslims interviewed for the segment denied that they needed to do any more to rout out radicalization within their community, with one man claiming Muslims, “are the ones who are collateral damage of this kind of attack.”
Channel 4 removed the entire segment from their website without explanation, prompting accusations that the broadcaster was attempting to cover-up the true attitudes of Muslims towards the Manchester attack.
“Channel 4 (UK) broadcast this interview with local area Muslims and subsequently took it down because it didn’t fit their narrative,” commented the individual who re-uploaded the video to YouTube.
“The killers community laugh in our face,” commented British journalist Katie Hopkins, accusing Channel 4 of providing a platform to Islamists.

Hopkins, who is under police investigation for the alleged “hate crime” of asking Brits to “demand action” to stop terrorism, labeled the comments a “terrifying reaction to slaughter of our children.”
“No remorse, no condemnation, no sense the attack was wrong,” she tweeted.
Numerous indications that the suicide bomber, Salman Ramadan Abedi, was a radical jihadist, were known before the attack, including the fact that he flew an ISIS flag from his house, but none of the terrorist’s neighbors thought this behavior suspicious enough to report to authorities.
