Subject: RE: BS: Andrew Neil slams jihadist!!!!!
The BBC site reports: "But Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said that, while Masood "clearly had an interest in Jihad", police had so far found no evidence of an association with the group or al-Qaeda, or that he had discussed his plan with others."

So not ISIS or al-Qaeda if the reporting is accurate. It is surely a matter of opinion with no hard or fast line when someone "with an interest in Jihad" who carries acts like this can fairly be described as a "Jihadist". And, in my view, not a terribly significant debating point.
