Worshippers at the mosque that the Manchester suicide bomber is believed to have frequented said they feared a backlash Wednesday, as the city's mayor warned any attacks on Muslims would please terrorists. Elders at the Didsbury mosque, a Victorian former Methodist chapel, reacted with disbelief to the attack and voiced concern about reports of Islamophobic attacks since the bombing at a pop concert which killed 22 people. "The horrific atrocity that occurred in Manchester on Monday night shocked us all. This act of cowardice has no place in our religion," said Fawzi Haffar, a trustee at the mosque, joined outside the building by members of the Muslim community. After a minute's silence, he thanked those who had helped victims and urged people to contact police with any information about the attack. The mosque stands in a leafy suburb of south Manchester popular with university students.

One member of Manchester's Libyan community told The Guardian newspaper: "He was such a quiet boy, always very respectful towards me. "His brother Ismael is outgoing, but Salman was very quiet. He is such an unlikely person to have done this." Abedi had recently returned from Libya, according to The Times newspaper's front page Wednesday, which cited a school friend as saying he left three weeks ago and returned in the last few days. Police said they were urgently seeking to establish whether Abedi worked alone, or acted as part of a larger network. Abedi's family were closely linked to the Didsbury Mosque, a Victorian former Methodist chapel in a leafy suburb that was bought in 1967 by donors from the Syrian Arab community. His father Ramadan had sometimes performed the call to prayer and his brother Ismael had been a volunteer. One senior figure from the mosque however, Mohammed Saeed, told The Guardian that when he once gave a sermon denouncing terror, Abedi stared him down.

Should they protect only white workers, which would reduce their collective bargaining power with big businessor should they represent all workers regardless of color? By generally choosing the latter, they fed racial resentment among whites, bringing organizations like the Ku Klux Klan back to life. By 1920 the Reverend William J. Simmons, a former Methodist minister from Alabama, had increased the Klans membership to more than four million. As their influence grew, so did their sense of self-importance; like the Taliban of a later era, they saw themselves as the sole guardians of pure American life. Native, White, Protestant supremacy became a motto, with dancing, drinking, religion, and any moral issues falling within their self-appointed purview. They were not alone in this myopic, intolerant Puritanism.
