Raids Take Place Across Britain
Overnight and morning raids are taking place all across Britain, and nine people have so far been arrested by SO15, Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command, with three of the arrested being females described as “a 39-year-old woman arrested in east London, while two women aged 26 and 21 were detained in Birmingham,” according to The Telegraph. The terrorist attacker’s identity was finally confirmed as Khalid Masood this morning, while many incorrect sources were reporting as late as yesterday evening that it was the infamous Islamic hate preacher Abu Izzadeen who committed the attacks. Izzadeen is actually still currently in jail according to sources.
This afternoon, police and officials are continuing to search the flat where the Islamic attacker lived, as reports have confirmed that the car that the attacker used was allegedly rented in Shirley. A neighbor claims that the flat that is being searched is Masood’s home. The neighbor also stated that the area around the flat is a “cheap place to live,” and that people come and go all the time. The authorities continue to investigate the possibility of a much broader conspiracy, with the arrests so far all being “on suspicion of acts of preparation of a terrorist act.”

50,000 British Muslims Downloaded Al Qaeda Magazine Last Year
According to MI5, a British intelligence agency, almost 50,000 British Muslims downloaded an Al Qaeda-inspired magazine last year. This magazine tells of things like how to easily kill “infidels” using large trucks, small cars, or medium sized vehicles, by running over large groups of people on the street and then exiting the vehicle with hand weapons such as knives or machetes. These are the exact types of attacks that we have seen recently at the Berlin Christmas market, in Nice, France and now most recently in London, England – just to name a few among many others like it. Masood was also known by MI5 for his extensive criminal background spanning decades as well as concerns about violent extremism.
In July of 2000 he engaged in an argument with “racial overtones,” which ended with him slashing a man across the face with a knife, requiring more than 20 stitches to close the gash. The incident occurred after Masood had argued with the man inside and then went out and slashed the man’s car seat covers with the knife. He was sentenced to two years in prison for that assault. Three years later he stabbed a man in the nose, causing him to need cosmetic surgery, and was sent back to prison for another six months. In all, Masood was convicted of “assaults, including GBH, possession of offensive weapons and public order offenses. His first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage and his last conviction was in December 2003 for possession of a knife,” The Telegraph reported. British Prime Minister Theresa May stated that, although he had previously been investigated by MI5 with regard to concerns about violent extremism, he was “a peripheral figure” and “was not part of the current intelligence picture.”
Tommy Robinson on the Rebel Media channel mentions this tidbit of information as a leftist reporter tries to race-bait him in an interview: “Why are you so quick to say that it was Islamic terrorism?” the reporter asks. “Because my head is not up my arse,” Robinson replies in the exchange. You can hear many passersby laughing within this video of the interview. Tommy Robinson is a lead member of the British Defense League, an organization that strives to protect Britain and it’s people from the allowed invasion of radicalized people who’s sole purpose is to do them harm. Robinson explains that actual ISIS members are allowed to live amongst the British people in London.
It’s Got Everything To Do With Islam
At Least 6 Dead, 40 Injured In Radicalized Islamic Terrorist Attack Near British Parliament Building
The lone terrorist, Khalid Masood, drove a 4 by 4 on to the Westminster Bridge over the River Thames today, mowing down pedestrians in his wake. The terrorist injured dozens of people before crashing into a barrier fence near the British Parliament building, including three police officers. After crashing the vehicle, the assailant exited the car with two long knives in his hands, proceeding to stab people along his way, in an attempt to enter the Parliament building, according to theSun.co.uk.
In this video from the DailyMail.co.uk, “the terrified public flee as three shots ring out in Parliament Square:”
American Among Dead
Upon storming Parliament, the attacker was met with the policeman guarding it and stabbed the officer numerous times before being shot by other officers at least three times. The stabbed officer and the terrorist were both treated for severe injuries at the scene and rushed to the hospital where both were pronounce dead, bringing the total number of deceased from the attack to six, after another civilian died yesterday, with numerous of the at least 40 others suffering injuries, considered “catastrophically” injured. It was also disclosed that one of the fatalities was a Utah man identified as, Kurt Cochran, in London to celebrate he and his wife’s 25th wedding anniversary. His wife was also hit by the attacker and is in the hospital in serious condition. UK authorities now believe that the attack was radicalized Muslim inspired. They had suspected this all along as today’s attack comes exactly one year to the day from the Brussels, Belgium, Islamic terrorist attacks.
Prime Minister Pushed From Parliament
One of the five killed in the attack was a woman who was hit with such force from the 4 by 4 that it flung her in to the path of a bus on the Westminster Bridge, resulting in her death. Another woman was thrown off the bridge and into the River Thames, but was soon thereafter rescued and is being treated for serious injuries. British Prime Minister, Theresa May, was inside the voting lobby of the Parliament building at the time of the attack, but was hurriedly whisked away by an undercover cop into a silver Jaguar, and immediately rushed away from the scene unharmed.
Sharing Secret Sharia
London has been infiltrated with a large influx of Muslim refugees over the last 2 – 3 decades. Along with the fast growing Muslim population, is the very worrisome fact that many of these residents are practicing laws other than those enforced by the British courts. In a 2009 study by Civitas, it was disclosed that there were 85 Islamic Sharia courts in London alone, as reported in the dailymail.co.uk. These courts operate beyond the purview of UK laws. They operate mainly behind the closed doors of mosques, often defying the laws of their host country and regularly transgressing the standards of human rights put forth in British law, especially with regard to the treatment and rights of Muslim women.
Moribund Muslim Mayor
In addition, London has elected its first Muslim Mayor to represent them and he has proven as controversial as President Trump is in the U.S.. London Mayor Sadiq Khan has been excoriated for warning Londoners that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” of living in the big city post-9/11, while also defending radical Islamists. “It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things,” Khan told the Evening Standard. “That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but also it means exchanging ideas and best practice,” he continued. Khan also condemned President Donald Trump’s proposed travel ban saying in May, 2016, that “London has proved him wrong,” in its inclusive approach to counter-terrorism.
But, even among the defeatist attitude of the Mayor’s acceptance of these brutal terrorist attacks as being an inevitable part of everyday life in the city, and the stark reality of witnessing an attack right before your eyes, there are still shining examples of humanity at its best. One such amazing act of heroism was done by MP Tobias Ellwood, who performed CPR on the injured policeman, keeping him alive to at least survive until reaching the hospital. Ellwood’s brother had been killed by the terrorist bombings of Bali in 2002.
Sympathy For The Devil
And yet, perhaps as a solemn reminder of the masochistic, self-destructive ramifications of taking political correctness and the innate goodness of diversity in and of itself, for truisms, The Telegraph goes so far as to make an attempt at sympathizing with this monster of a mass-murdering terrorist, merely because he just happened to be a half black/half white, radical practicing Muslim, which is a protected class of favored people in the eyes of all those on the left these days. The leftist log starts out their article with a headline about how the assailant went from a 15-year-old soccer-loving teenager to the “London Attacker.” It then proceeds with all of the gratuitous affectations of his younger self and what a nice, bright guy he was, with the expected shock of those he used to know saying “This has come as a huge shock to me, it is hard to take in that this is the same bloke.” The quote almost writes itself, it has been enumerated in so many exhortations before. But, then The Telegraph seems to go off the rails of any credulity, venturing into sheer speculation in order to partially exonerate his purely evil actions.
First, they speculate that Masood “may have eventually snapped because of racism in his village leading him to slash the face of the cafe owner” in 2000. So, he is not responsible for his vicious, violent act of gashing a man’s face with a knife, causing the need for more than 20 stitches to close the wound. It is solely the fault of racism against him, specifically the racism inherent in his village. Or perhaps the racism of his victim? Yes, the racism of his victim fits perfectly in the leftist narrative to excuse the poor mistreated mass-murderer. Then they claim that “It is thought he may have been radicalized while in jail, leading to his involvement in terrorism.” You see, he had no choice but to become a terrorist. I mean, he was captive while in jail, and helpless to overcome the radicalization process. When he got out of prison, his life was just so terrible and unbearable because he and his wife were “ostracized” by others in their village (who probably sought to not get stabbed in the face by him).
From here, they attempt to humanize him as much as possible, quoting a virtual potpourri of people saying everything nice about him from how he’s “really nice and polite, and very pleasant,” to mentioning his grandchildren and how he “was always dressed in a suit.” They finish off their humanizing of this terrorist by quoting a former Scotland Yard counter-terrorism officer and security expert, again engaging in sheer speculation and convoluted conjecture: “It would be my assessment that he has probably had quite a troubled past, with involvement in drink or drugs leading him into criminality. Then at some point, possibly in the last decade, he has converted to Islam and changed his name. Then it appears that he has fallen under the malign influence of others who have encouraged or persuaded him to carry out this attack, possibly for money for his family.” Wow! It is amazing how they can figure a man’s whole life out in two days without ever even talking to him or anyone close to him.
ISIS Claims Credit
Yet, the horrific scene of the attack will forever be etched upon the minds of those unlucky enough to have experienced it, as all along Westminster was strewn with debris and littered with the injured. One witness, Rick Longely, was quoted by theSun.co.uk as describing his shock at watching the attack: “A guy came past my right shoulder with a big knife and just started plunging it into the policeman. I have never seen anything like that. I just can’t believe what I just saw.”
In reaction to the attack near the UK Parliament, New York Police are on heightened alert at the British consulate, offering additional security for our long time ally. For its part, ISIS was cheering the successful terrorist attack from the beginning, although they did not immediately take credit for it. That changed yesterday as the Islamic terrorist group formally claimed the credit for the attack.
