An investigation carried out by The Sun newspaper has found that equipment needed to make “Mother of Satan” bomb, which was used by the Manchester arena bomber who killed 22 innocent, can be bought on amazon for just £95!
Selling bomb making equipment is illegal, yet a journalist working for the sun was able to buy all the ingredients needed to construct the “mother of Satan bomb” used by jihadi terrorists in one order without any security checks from amazon.
Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke said: “It shows once again that internet firms aren’t playing by the rules. I would go as far as to say that Amazon is aiding and abetting terrorism.”
An amazon spokesperson has since released a statement, however, the statement does not say that they will stop people buying bomb making equipment nor does it even apologise. The statement said:
“We only sell products that comply with UK laws.
“In light of recent events, we are reviewing our website to ensure these products are presented in an appropriate manner.
“We also continue to work closely with police and law enforcement agencies where we can assist investigations.”.
It isn’t just the Manchester bomber that has made the most of the deals on amazon to make a bomb. A court has heard today how Ahmed Hassan, 18 bought the explosive chemical “triacetone triperoxide“ on amazon, which he then used to construct a deadly bomb that he planted on a tube train in the Parsons Green terror attack. The bomb failed to detonate properly and nobody dwas killed, however the bomb did have the explosive capability to kill a lot of people on the train.
There is simply no depths that Amazon will not stoop to make a quick buck. For example,
this isn’t the first time amazon has been selling dodgy goods, early this year Amazon was criticised for selling equipment for breaking into peoples cars. Just before hurricane Irma struck Amazon was found taking advantage of people in Florida set to be hit by the hurricane by price gouging bottles of water to maximise profits. Back in 2010 Amazon was also criticised for selling PEADOPHILE guidebooks on its website and when questioned about it Amazon refused to remove them.
Amazon who evades paying tax by declaring they make no profits have grown exponentially in recent years, killing off many small businesses both on the high street and online. Early this year Jeff Bezos who own amazon was crowned the second richest man in the world (also the greediest due to the fact he never gives any money to charity).
Is it time for everyone to boycott amazon for good?
