Condolences to those affected by those killed, speedy recovery to those wounded and well done to those stopping the attack ...

Some quick headlines from Google News here ...

  • "Four dead, at least 20 injured in parliament 'terrorist' attack"
  • "No change in Canada's threat level after assumed terror attack in London"

Deepest condolences to the family and friends of the fallen and a speedy, full recovery to the injured.  Glad the terrorist didn't make it.

Don Jnr. Tweets,
https://www.google.ca/search?q=trump+london+mayor&rls=com.microsoft%3Aen-CA%3AIE-Address&rlz=1I7GGHP_en-GBCA592&source=lnt&tbs=cdr%3A1%2Ccd_min%3A3%2F22%2F2017%2Ccd_max%3A&tbm=#spf=1



Trump Jr sounds like a real doorknob with that tweet.  Obviously not what the mayor said.

I wonder though if the mayor will blame this attack on Trump.



[although in fairness the identity of the attacker hasn't been confirmed]

Yup, he got it right, saying bad things about a religion makes bad things happen by the adherents of the religion.  Look at the continually roasted Jehovah Witnesses, the mayhem they create in the streets..........  Don't forget Mormons and their drive to turn the world into Utah.

As soon as they said, very early today, that the rented vehicle the terrorist used was from Birmingham and arrests had been made there, the identity of this POS comes as no surprise.

As far as I'm concerned, the only pressure point I would want to apply on that POS laying on the ground would at throat level.  frig. Him.

There were a half dozen or more other websites with the same story, I just grabbed the  first one.

Just more examples of humans being dicks.

Words and websites. It's easy to condemn them to the press. Words.  It's easy to condemn them to the media. Words, mostly anonymous.

I want to know how many of these bad guys they've dropped a dime on. I want to see them front and centre, megaphone in hand, with their local imams, rallying against their gone astray brethern when they decide to riot, have a pray in on Main St, or create no go ghettos. I want to see them stand up in parliament, and tell Trudeau he's wrong. I want them to yell at the left, there is no such a thing as islamaphobia.

When I see someone prominent with muslims, the House of Saud, Iran's Ayatolla someone like that condemn the terrorists, and turn their armies loose to kill them, then, I might start to believe it.

Apart from the fundraising, right?

So you mean the social media posts that Jarhamar shared (words & emojis, mostly anonymous) should just be overlooked too, then?  ;)

A virtual state of emergency exists in central London, plans to extend it city-wide, perhaps to be followed in other European cities beyond repressive measures already in place.
My step-son was in London during the attack, and just got home last night.  He called BS (in quite graphic terms) about that whole sentence.

Caught this story about the attacker.
Apparently he spent some time in jail and came out obsessed with Islam.

They say he wasn't too impressed  his 18 year old daughter or his wife wouldn't to convert to Islam.

Given this guys birth name, I tend to lean towards the idea that he was a nut that was taken in by radical Islamic extremists.  I'm not really sure what can be done to stop this kind of thing.

What I read, was that he was converted while in prison.  A fact often reported in American press reflecting on the numbers of converts being found in American prisons as well.  This would indicate that many prison systems around the world are the breeding grounds for the recruiting of converts to Islam.

Yeah I think I saw that now that you mention it.  That said, there's no problem with converting to Islam per say.  It's obvious (to me, anyway) that this convert (and too many others) have some combination of mental illness combined with a very bad influence before/during/arter the conversion.
