London Bridge Terror: Police Shoot Knifeman, Several Injured

Post by Ariel »

Dozens of police response vehicles swarmed onto London Bridge Friday afternoon, blocking one of the busiest river crossings in London, amid reports of shots having been fired in the vicinity

London Bridge Terror: Police Shoot Knifeman, Several Injured

One man was shot by police Friday afternoon in the aftermath of a ‘terror’ incident on London Bridge, just yards from the 2017 terror attack where nine were killed and dozens injured in an Islamist attack.
Images and video uploaded to social media from London bridge Friday show dozens of police vehicles and armed response officers in the area amid the apparent knife attack. Police shot one man dead at the scene and several are reported injured.

The site of the incident is directly adjacent to London Bridge Station, one of the busiest rail interchanges in London. An internal railway security alert memo seen by Breitbart London states that during an “incident” on the bridge, a “male has been shot”. The Metropolitan Police have said “We are in the early stages of dealing with an incident at London Bridge.”

UPDATE 1730 — Suspect wore fake explosive vest

London’s Metropolitan Police have confirmed the suspect in the stabbing attack at London Bridge was shot, and died of those wounds, at the scene.

The suspect, police say, was wearing a fake suicide vest. This development further develops the similarities to the last terrorist attack against London Bridge perpetrated in 2017, where the attackers wore fake bomb vests, likely to ensure their martyrdom at the hands of firearms officers.

Neil Basu, the senior London police officer responsible for UK counter-terrorism policing summarised the situation in a statement Friday evening, when he said:
  • I can confirm that at approximately two pm today, Friday 29 November, police were called to a stabbing at a premises near to London Bridge.

    Emergency services attended including officers from the City of London Police and the Metropolitan Police.

    A male suspect was shot by specialist armed officers from the City of London Police, and I can confirm that this suspect died at the scene.

    A number of other people received injuries during this incident.

    As soon as we can provide further updates on their condition we will, and our heartfelt sympathies go out to everybody who has been involved in this, and is anxiously waiting for information on their loved ones.

    As you would expect due to the nature of the incident, we responded as though this was terrorist-related.

    I am now in a position to confirm that it has been declared a terrorist incident.

    We are working jointly with the City of London Police as we continue to respond.

    Officers from the Met counter-terrorism command are leading this investigation, but I must stress that we retain an open mind as to any motive.

Two members of the public have died after a stabbing attack at London Bridge, in which police also shot dead the suspect.

The Met Police has declared the attack a terrorist incident.

Witnesses have spoken to the BBC about what they saw.
Amanda Hunter, who was on a bus on London Bridge at the time, said: "All of a sudden [it] stopped and there was some commotion and I looked out the window and I just saw these three police officers going over to a man…

"It seemed like there was something in his hand, I'm not 100% sure. But then one of the police officers shot him."

Bus driver Mustafa Salih, 62, was travelling from Borough High Street towards London Bridge where he saw emergency vehicles and the police cordon.

He told BBC London: "A police officer came up to me and said 'turn off your engine, get off and run'.

"I looked up and I could see a crowd of people coming towards me.

"One woman was crying. I ran back down to Borough High Street. It was all very scary as we did not know what was happening."

London Bridge attacker 'convicted terrorist on jail release with links to Islamist cells'

Image

The attacker who killed two people this afternoon before being shot by police had been released from jail about a year ago after agreeing to wear an electronic tag and be monitored by authorities

The knife-wielding terrorist who killed two people before being shot dead by police was known to authorities and had connection to Islamist terror groups, sources understand.

He was released from prison about a year ago after agreeing to wear an electronic tag and be monitored by authorities, the Times reports.

The paper said he was attending a Cambridge University conference on prisoner rehabilitation being held at Fishmongers' Hall and "threatened to blow up" the building.

The university earlier said it was "gravely concerned" for the welfare of its staff, students and alumni as it believed they may have been caught up in the attack.

The suspect was a recently-released terrorist prisoner believed to have been wearing a tag, a source is reported to have told Sky News.

A security source confirmed to the PA news agency he was known to police and had connections to Islamist terror groups.

A maintenance worker who witnessed the London Bridge knife attack claims he was told the assailant had been in prison for terrorism offences.

Jamie Bakhit, a 24-year-old from Purley, Croydon, said he spoke to one of the men who helped wrestle the knifeman to the ground after they were taken to the Salvation Army headquarters to be interviewed by police.

He told the PA news agency: "The guy who was on top of him said he [the attacker] had been in prison for terrorism, apparently.

"Some of the guys who were on top of him were ex-prisoners and they had all been in the Fishmongers' Hall.

"The guy told me he was in prison with the attacker."

The all powerful allah needs mere humans to do his dirty work? Unable to do it himself?

Allah who creates infidels for target practice for his devotees to test them if they are pious enough?

What kind of god is that?

What kind of a human are you to follow that murderous, immoral deity?

This is the Islamist terrorist Usman Khan who murdered 2 people on London Bridge.

London Bridge killer, 28, was jailed for eight years in 2012 for plotting to BOMB the London Stock Exchange, but was released last year

According to intelligence, the UK is home to 23,000 jihadist extremists like him.

Good luck people in England.

Despite having Qurans to read and contemplate in prison
Despite receiving regular prison visits by Islamically knowledgable imams
Despite dining on wholesome halal prison food
Despite being able to pray in prison space specially set aside for that purpose

Despite all these things, this individual somehow managed to leave prison still thinking that killing kafirs and getting himself killed in the process would be a thing pleasing to Allah!!!! How oh how could this happen????

London Bridge terror attack was revenge attack over the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, claim experts after rampage coincided with attacks in Holland and France

But....

ISIS has tonight claimed responsibility for a terror attack which killed two and left three injured when an attacker went on a knife rampage near London Bridge.

The terrorist organisation said Usman Khan, 28, had acted on their behalf, though the group did not provide any evidence this is the case.

It added that the attack was made in response to Islamic State calls to target countries that have been part of a coalition fighting the jihadist group.

'The person who carried out the London attack... was a fighter from the Islamic State, and did so in response to calls to target citizens of coalition countries,' IS said, referring to a multi-country alliance against the group.

'I want to be a good British citizen': London Bridge terrorist's grovelling prison letter - before he was AUTOMATICALLY freed early after seven years for Mumbai-style plot despite his trial judge saying he should NEVER be released

In an old letter from 2012, unveiled today, the terrorist begged to be shown mercy and asked for a course to be arranged so that he could 'properly learn Islam and its teachings, and I can prove I don't carry the extreme views which I might have carried before.'

It has also emerged today that he was a student and 'personal friend' of hate preacher Anjem Choudary. Khan spent years preaching on stalls that were linked to al-Muhajiroun, the banned terror group once led by Choudary.

Lying for the cause of Islam is not only permitted, but necessary.

The reliance of the traveler. (Sharia).

The kuffar doesn’t know, or even want to know that.

And none of these people supposedly keeping watch on him noticed his resemblance to Peter Sutcliffe, the "Yorkshire Ripper". Anyone around in the UK in Sutcliffe's day would recognise those mad eyes. Trim that beard a bit and it could be a photo of the Ripper.
But I suppose they'd say he was just a mentally ill lone wolf, as they usually do, rather than an unreformable religious extremist.

London Bridge attacker was poster boy for rehab scheme he targeted

Image
London Bridge terrorist Usman Khan seen on the Learning Together website

The London Bridge attacker was heralded as a success story of the rehabilitation initiative that he went on to attack, it emerged on Sunday night.

Learning Together, a Cambridge University programme, worked with Usman Khan in prison and after his release and used him as a case study to show how they helped prisoners.

Khan even wrote a poem and a thank-you note to organisers after they provided him with a computer he could use without breaching a licence that banned him from going online.

Just months later the 28-year-old used his connection to the rehabilitation initiative to get permission to travel to London and kill two of those people who were trying to help him.

Sure.... :huh: Muslims are always “ victimized ”, because of poverty, exclusion, not getting religious based demand fulfilled…. So.... But...and it’s all due to Islam .
UK’s Guardian: London Bridge jihadi was reacting to racism, Muslims are the real victims of his massacre

Elsewhere, court documents reveal that racism may have also played a role in radicalising Khan. They cite how Khan and others discussed bombing pubs in Stoke as a response to ‘racist incidents.'”

Of course court documents “reveal” this. What they do not “reveal,” however, is why this is so. In Sunni Islamic law, defensive jihad is obligatory on every Muslim if a Muslim land is attacked. Offensive jihad can only be called by the caliph. So in the absence of a caliph, the jihad activity has to be defensive. Accordingly, it has to be ascribed to a response to some provocation by the kuffar. Then witless kuffar leaders think, “Oh, if only we stopped doing this, then the jihad would cease.” And so they embark on becoming Sharia-compliant dhimmis.

“On Saturday, as the night drew in over Stoke, local taxi driver Mirza Mahmood bemoaned the lack of prospects, and bigotry facing the city’s young British Pakistani community, particularly young men. He also knew Khan’s murderous actions would invoke fresh prejudice. He said: ‘Let me tell you, there is always more abuse, and we drivers get attacked much more every time there is an incident like this. Our children suffer, everyone suffers. The racism is much worse than it was a decade ago. It’s tense. Everyone is tense.’”

Of course. After every jihad attack, the establishment media tells us that Muslims are the real victims. And of course the British media continues its witless depiction of all opposition to jihad terror as “racism.” All this illustrates why we’re in the fix we’re in.
  • “‘We don’t understand how Usman Khan ended up like this,'” by Mark Townsend and Nosheen Iqbal, Guardian, November 30, 2019:

    Outside a small white and green mosque in Cobridge, Stoke-on-Trent, at Zuhr prayers on Saturday lunchtime dozens of men and women in padded jackets, heavy coats and kurtas gathered in the car park, unable to squeeze into the single-storey building for the funeral taking place inside.

    “One of our community elders has passed. It’s a massive death,” explained a softly-spoken man in his 20s who didn’t want to give his name. He grew up with Usman Khan, whose family live in a terraced cul-de-sac around the corner. A day earlier Khan had brought terror to central London, embarking on a knife rampage, killing Cambridge University postgraduate Jack Merritt, and an unnamed woman, and injuring three others.

    As the sky darkened, the congregation in Cobridge became increasingly subdued as locals struggled to digest the news that a man who once was a neighbour had wrought such barbarism in the capital.

    “We grew up on the same streets, we know every one of his brothers and sisters, his mum and dad,” said one. Another said: “We don’t understand how [Khan] ended up like this. How can you have a person who went to prison for extremism and terror, and then he’s let out and he’s got a tag on and ends up back in London to do this? How? Why?”

    More than 150 miles south, in the headquarters of MI5 on the banks of the Thames, investigators are asking the same questions: how did Khan, a 28-year-old convicted terrorist who had been participating in an event showcasing the rehabilitation of inmates, manage to perpetrate such an act while out on licence? And why?…

    Elsewhere, court documents reveal that racism may have also played a role in radicalising Khan. They cite how Khan and others discussed bombing pubs in Stoke as a response to “racist incidents”.

    On Saturday, as the night drew in over Stoke, local taxi driver Mirza Mahmood bemoaned the lack of prospects, and bigotry facing the city’s young British Pakistani community, particularly young men. He also knew Khan’s murderous actions would invoke fresh prejudice.

    He said: “Let me tell you, there is always more abuse, and we drivers get attacked much more every time there is an incident like this.

    “Our children suffer, everyone suffers. The racism is much worse than it was a decade ago. It’s tense. Everyone is tense.”

Read the Quran, Hadiths, the Biography of Muhammad for starters.

Ushman Khan read it, believed it, acted on it.

The Muslims of Pakistan take objection to the reporting of the news that Usman Khan was of Pakistani origin.
