Last night, Britain was rocked for the third time in three weeks as gang of Islamic terrorists brought horror to the streets of downtown London.Per the Telegraph,At shortly after 10pm, a white B&Q van being driven at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour mounted the pavement at London Bridge and ploughed into pedestrians, knocking them down like (bowling pins). Reports suggested some victims were thrown into the water of the Thames below. Others may have jumped in in an attempt to avoid the speeding vehicle.
The van came to a halt on the south side of the bridge but it wasn’t the end of the carnage. Three men wielding knives 10 inches long began attacking passersby, even entering at least one restaurant to attack Saturday night diners.One report suggested throats had been slashed by the marauders, likely to be Islamic State-inspired terrorists – although that had not been confirmed by the early hours of this morning.
Of course it was the words of the attackers that will sadly be unsurprising to many, and downplayed and excused by the Islamapologists: “This is for Allah.”
Is there any question of the motive for these monsters? What they’re trying to achieve?One eyewitness on London Bridge, told the BBC he saw three men stabbing people indiscriminately, shouting “this is for Allah”.
The witness, named as Eric, told how he saw a van driving on the pavement with people running out of the way, before three men got out.
“They literally just started kicking them, punching them, they took out knives. It was a rampage really,” he said. “They headed down towards Southwark Cathedral towards the bar, and starting running at people.The Daily Mail reports one of the attackers was wearing an Arsenal football club jersey. Another strange bit of coincidence – the primary sponsor of Arsenal is Emirates airlines from Dubai — as in, United Arab Emirates. The same Emirates that sponsors the cricket ground in Manchester where Ariana Grande is holding her “One Love” benefit concert for the victims of the bomb attack — tonight as it happens. Just a tad unsettling, don’t you think?
Three jihadis were shot dead by police within minutes of the rampage, and eleven people have been arrested today in conjunction with the attack.
But that was too late for the seven people murdered and 48 wounded.And it’s not hard to imagine there’s more to come.
