London – British Newspaper “Sunday Times” said on Sunday that Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood had a key role at a mosque that urges Muslims to take up arms against “the Jews and the rest of the enemies of Islam.”

Masood was a public contact for a website which published extreme material, and a contact person for calltoislam.com – the main website of the hardline Luton Islamic Center mosque.

Masood’s name, a phone number that the Sunday Times confirmed as his, and the website address appeared on stickers on display at the mosque.

Sermons published on calltoislam ask worshippers to make to “make ready steeds of war to threaten the enemy of Allah.”

“We ask Allah that he grant us the ability to pursue the proper means for gaining victory over the Jews and over the rest of the enemies of Islam.”

The revelation comes as hundreds of police officers are expected to line London’s streets for the funeral of PC Keith Palmer.

The heroic cop was stabbed to death by Masood at the entrances to the Houses of Parliament.

Three other people were killed after the terrorist ploughed his car across Westminster Bridge in a murderous rampage.
