As Jihad Watch points out, "But still, Salih Khater’s motive is a mystery. It would be like the BBC in 1939 saying that a large group of Germans had suddenly started marching toward Warsaw, but they were still trying to establish their motivation."

 From the Independent:
The man accused of launching a terror attack in Westminster is Salih Khater, a British citizen who moved to the UK from Sudan, The Independent understands.

A flat where he previously lived in Birmingham was among three properties being searched by police as they investigate the 29-year-old’s possible motivations.

He was “not cooperating” with the investigation overnight and remains in police custody.

Mr Khater describes himself as a shop manager on his Facebook page, where the “about” section reads: “In past I’m great but now I say I don’t no [sic]”.

He said he studied at Sudan University of Science and Technology and went to school in Wad Madani, a city south-east of Khartoum.

Mr Khater’s page shows a mixture of connections based mainly in Sudan, Birmingham and Nottingham – the two cities that are now the focus of operations by counterterror police.

Investigators are searching his former flat above a row of shops in Sparkbrook, near where the first Westminster attacker Khalid Masood lived.

The area was the home of several terrorists, including UK’s first suicide bomber, its first al-Qaeda plotter, one of one of the financiers of the 9/11 attacks and several extremists who went to fight for Isis.

Police also raided another property in Birmingham and a flat in Nottingham that was said to be rented by several Sudanese men.

No arrests have so far been made in the operations and police are not believed to be hunting for any other suspects over the alleged attack.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the head of UK counterterror policing, said the suspect was not known to MI5 or counterterror police.

‘We heard screams, then car ploughed into cyclists waiting at lights’

He said his team’s current priority was to formally identify the suspect “and establish his motivation if we can – he is not currently cooperating”….
