A really nice boy

If anyone needed a lesson that simply invading countries isn’t going to stop Islamic fundamentalism, then the story of Asif Hanif and Omar Sharif should be it. Nick Cohen writes an excellent column about it in today’s Observer. Sharif came from Derby, my home town, and looks like hundreds of kids I went to school with, hung about with, and generally knew. He went to the same school as my brother. So what led him to want to slaughter innocent people by blowing himself to bits?
Until the west gets a grip on the reason “why” there will be no end to this.
