DAILYKENN.com -- DNA testing has identified Jack the Ripper as a Polish Jewish immigrant who was effectively seeking asylum from Poland's Russian rulers.
Jack the Ripper is often noted as proof that knife attacks occurred prior to the Islamic invasion of Britain. Knife attacks have become epidemic in the UK in recent years, particularly in London.
Imagine the insanity of a government that opens its borders to millions of potential Jack the Rippers.

A self-confessed “armchair detective” claims to have solved perhaps the most notorious whodunit ever by claiming to have discovered the identity of Jack the Ripper.
Russell Edwards claims Aaron Kosminski, a 23 year-old Polish immigrant who ended up dying in an asylum, was “definitely, categorically and absolutely” the man behind the grisly killing spree in 1888 in London’s East End.
Edwards said a blood-stained shawl he bought in 2007 after an auction in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, held vital DNA evidence which led him to the killer.
“I’ve got the only piece of forensic evidence in the whole history of the case,” he said. “I’ve spent 14 years working on it, and we have definitively solved the mystery of who Jack the Ripper was.
“Only non-believers that want to perpetuate the myth will doubt. This is it now – we have unmasked him.”
Jack the Ripper murdered at least five women, slashing their throats, removing some of their internal organs and leaving their mutilated bodies in alleyways in Whitechapel.
Edwards, 48, from Barnet, north London, was “captivated” by the murder mystery and had been investigating it in his spare time.
In 2007 he saw a shawl found by the body of Catherine Eddowes, one of the Ripper’s victims, was up for sale.
He bought it, and enlisted the help of Jari Louhelainen, an expert in molecular biology, who used pioneering techniques to find DNA from her blood and that of the killer.
“Here I am with the shawl and possibly the evidence to solve the most unsolvable murder in English criminal history. But where do I start? That was the big question.
“I enlisted the help of Jari and we embarked on a three-and-a-half year journey.
“When we discovered the truth it was the most amazing feeling of my entire life.”
Kosminski was a Polish Jewish immigrant who, fleeing persecution by Poland’s Russian rulers, came with his family to England in 1881 and lived in Mile End Old Town.
He was admitted to a string of lunatic asylums, where he died in 1899 of gangrene in the leg.
