Londoners have had more than a week now to digest the news.

A man ploughed his car into a crowd, killing three people, rammed the gates of Britain’s parliament, then stabbed and killed a policeman before being shot dead himself.

Initially, there was confusion over the facts, leading some journalists and insta-pundits astray. Then came the declaration, the verdict from the authorities, on whether it was or was not an act of terrorism. Nothing in the attacker’s personal history — drug abuse, domestic violence, criminal convictions, jail time – none of it seemed to override his identity as a Muslim – he was an adult convert.
