Breaking: Vehicle Plows into Pedestrians in London

 

The first report from the BBC:

A vehicle has struck pedestrians “leaving a number of casualties” in north London, police said. One person has been arrested following the incident on Seven Sisters Road in Finsbury Park.

Officers were called at 12.20 BST and are at the scene with other emergency services, the Metropolitan Police said. A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We have sent a number of resources to an incident in Seven Sisters Road.”

Early reports indicate that the vehicle struck people leaving the Finsbury Park mosque, which has been implicated in several terror incidents. It remains to be seen if this an attack of retribution.

Update from the BBC (6:50 pm ET):

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said a van “intentionally” ran over worshippers. Many of the victims are believed to have just left evening prayers after breaking the Ramadan fast.

One eyewitness who lives in a flat on Seven Sisters Road told the BBC she saw people “shouting and screaming”.

“Everyone was shouting ‘a van’s hit people’.

“There was this white van stopped outside Finsbury Park Mosque that seems to have hit people who were coming out of the mosque after prayers finished.”

    Abbreviated vulgarity is still vugarity. Ricochet style is to use bold for emphasis.

    Retribution? How interesting. Britain has been in the news quite a bit lately. Their coppers barely armed, the citizens not at all, they’ve a media that’s absolutely ridiculously apologetic toward Muslim misbehavior, leadership chaos (we know what that is), Brexit Remain brohaha. And the BBC! LOL what a politically correct leftist swill pot. I feel for them but I don’t. They have allowed this. I think [redacted]is past the party is Over. That was fast.

    More and more, it seems that Mark Steyn’s predictions in his book ‘America Alone’ of violent conflict between Europeans and Islamic immigrants are coming true. I gather that Scott Adams book ‘The Religion Wars,’ also predicted the rise of an ISIS-type movement.

    Too early to tell if this is counter-terrorism, or yet another instance of internecine Islamic violence.

    Counter-terrorism? You mean revenge murder?

    You can speak the truth about Islamic terrorism without speaking apologetically toward non-Islamic terrorism.

    I remember about a year ago, I was sitting at poker table with friends, and debating gun control. (this is Canada, so our rights have been long gone) I was explaining that a car – is more dangerous than a hand gun. Nobody at the table would believe me – they either thought – and some said – I was either crazy or stupid.

    Maybe next weekend – I’ll find them at the table again – and we can revisit the conversation.

    [redacted] The difference is, my comment was redacted by the editors for imputing without evidence whereas yours was not. I like the clarity.

    If it’s true that the driver was screaming, “I’m going to kill all Muslims,” it’s not likely internecine Islamic violence.

    One way to avoid having Crazies do stuff like this would be to have police, intelligence, and military forces actually do something about Islamic militants before they attack. They all seem to be under surveillance–perhaps something more than surveillance could be tried? And isn’t incitement a crime—-maybe the preachers could be prosecuted for incitement or aiding and abetting.?

    Keeping them under surveillance until they kill is unsatisfactory.

    Islamic Terror is both killing us, and corrupting our governments and populaces.
