Lee? Most of us who actually watch, remember and drink from the fountains of truth know who Lee Rigby was. He was the unfortunate soldier targeted by two Terrorists. He died because he was wearing a T-shirt from the military charity Help For Heroes. not a military uniform, but, to all intents and purposes he may as well have been. These two murderous thugs were out for ‘Jihad’, but the police refused to kill them, as they hoped. Instead they subdued them, arrested them, and then, after due legal process, both were given full life terms.
But Ignacio? Ignacio who? Exactly! He was the MAN who stepped forward, and attacked the jihadis who were killing innocent civilians in the Borough marketplace. His weapon? A skateboard. He had returned from a skateboard session, and was angling towards a pint in a bar when he saw a woman being stabbed by one of the Muslim Jihadi terrorists. So he hit him with his skateboard; and he died for his bravery, died from the blade wounds which slashed through his skin and into his valiant heart.
And why is it exactly that Ignacio’s name is virtually unknown? After all, he posthumously received a George Cross for his bravery, that decoration being handed to his parents who had travelled from Spain. Why is it that this HERO is not remembered in any way, shape or form anywhere on the streets of our Capital City, where he gave his life in an attempt to protect others!
We do not hear anything from the ‘chattering classes’ of his bravery. Is this lack of publicity because of a lack of knowledge? Nope; in my own estimation it is because of one thing, and one thing only: Ignacio Echevarria’s death was caused by Islamic Extremism. His death is at the door of Islam, and some of its followers. By Muslim fanatics faithful to a Religion which tells them that if they die, and take ‘unbelievers’ with them, they will inherit ‘paradise’; along with the eighty virgins. He died for the one thing which is virtually silenced these days, because if you speak of Muslim terror, or Muslim rape and grooming gangs, you are breaching the virtual embargo against anything which tells the truth.
We have a statue of a Terrorist in Parliament Square: Lee has two memorials, one in a church, the other on a pavement slab.
Lets have a street, or a London square, named after Ignacio, who died fighting for others!
