Three Jihadi terrorists were shot dead by armed police after killing seven people and injuring 48 others in a horrific van and knife rampage through central London last night.

The men, described as being ‘of Mediterranean origin’, mowed down up to 20 revellers as they careered across London Bridge in an ‘S shape’ at 50mph before they began ‘randomly stabbing’ people in nearby Borough Market.

Attackers wearing fake suicide vests shouted ‘this is for Allah’ as they used 12-inch hunting knives to attack revellers at busy bars and restaurants in the market, sending dozens of others fleeing for their lives.

Witnesses said the gang smashed pub windows and reportedly cut the throats of drinkers as civilians barricaded themselves inside and fought off the attackers with pint glasses and chairs. One witness saw a ‘dark-skinned’ man in a red tracksuit ‘calmly’ stab a man three times while another witnessed a victim being stabbed in the face.

Armed police rushed to the scene and shot dead all three suspects within eight minutes of receiving the first emergency call. One of the terrorists was wearing an Arsenal football shirt.

Today heavily armed police raided a block of flats in Barking, east London, as police launch a major investigation into what is the third terror attack on British soil in the last three months.

The tragedy comes just 12 days after the Manchester terror attack and 10 weeks after the Westminster atrocity. Speaking outside No 10 today, Theresa May confirmed the three incidents are not directly connected but are linked by ‘the single evil ideology of Islamist extremism’. No one has claimed responsibility for last night’s attack.

The official terror threat level has not been changed and remains at ‘severe’ – meaning an attack is ‘highly likely’.

Today major roads in central London remained closed as heavily armed police were seen arriving at the scene. Meanwhile:

  • Witness accounts of the terrifying events started to emerge with revellers describing how they fought off knifemen with chairs and glasses after attackers stormed packed bars and restaurants
  • A hero taxi driver revealed how he tried to knock down three men ‘armed with 12in knives’ while anothers reported seeing victim being stabbed in the face and chest
  • Dashcam footage emerged showing the aftermath of the devastation caused by the van on London Bridge, with bystanders seen tending to victims on the side of the road 
  • Desperate families are begging for information on loved ones feared missing after the attack, including a 16-year-old girl who failed to return home last night 
  • Kindhearted Londoners offered beds, food and cups of tea to survivors as the city came together in the wake of another attack and #PrayForLondon trended on social media 
  • Today heavily armed officers raided a flat in Barking, east London, on Sunday morning as police launched a major investigation into the third terror attack on British soil in as many months
  • The Prime Minister chaired a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee in Whitehall this morning and insisted in a press conference outside No 10 afterwards: ‘Enough is enough’ 
  • Politicians faced calls to cancel the election next week but Mrs May confirmed it will go ahead as planned 
  • All parties except for Ukip agreed to suspend national election campaigning today but local efforts will continue
  • London Mayor Sadiq Khan condemned the ‘barbaric’ and ‘horrific’ event as ‘deliberate and cowardly’. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the attack was ‘brutal’ and ‘shocking’ in a tweet last night  
  • President Donald Trump tweeted his support for Britain, saying ‘Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!’
  • Ariana Grande, whose young fans were targeted in the attack at Manchester Arena, confirmed the benefit concert to benefit victims will go ahead tonight as planned with her manager urging people to stand together

Speaking from the steps of No 10 today, Mrs May said Britain faces a ‘new trend in the threat we face’ as she condemned the brutal attacks.

The Premier said there was ‘far too much tolerance’ of extreme views and vowed to stand up for ‘pluralistic British values’ that were ‘superior’ to the fanatics’ ideology. She vowed: ‘We will take on and defeat our enemies.’

Mrs May, who chaired a meeting of the emergency Cobra committee this morning, said the election campaign would resume in full tomorrow and the election on Thursday would go ahead as planned.

  1. Politicians and court systems are mainly responsible for allowing this situation with Islamic terrorists to get out of control. They alone have had the ability to stop it, but instead chose to let politically correct terminology stand in their way.

    Obama was the biggest defender of political correctness, when it came to protecting Muslims, with European leaders vying for for second place. If they learn nothing else from the mayhem they’ve foisted on the public, I hope it’s that tolerance doesn’t work when confronted by evil.

    Those leaders, and all ike them, failed to set forth policies that could have nipped much of this in the bud long ago, and I’m still not convinced they weren’t finagling to have globalism rise out of the chaos, once things got bad enough. Why else would those leaders hamper their military, government agencies and law enforcement from doing their jobs adequately? Why else let nimby-wimby delicate, liberal judges, students, groups, newsmen/women, WHATEVER get by with degrading, mocking and humiliating brave defenders of liberty to the point they needed legal counsel, simply for doing what needed to be done, and then being called down for it?

    A lot of innocent blood is on the head of these leaders.

    Meanwhile, I welcome the ‘difficult dialogue’ Theresa May said is needed (about Islam), because we’re fed up with the lackadaisical approach to fighting these barbaric radicals who are more than eager to accommodate their god’s blood lust.

    “What real religion would require its followers to hate and kill others…for any reason?!”* None! Yet the Qur’an does! Soldiers of Allah actually glory in committing horrendous acts in Allah’s name. Killers are considered heroes, and those who die in the cause are martyrs! What kind of god allows such demonic behavior?

    How can Islam claim to be a religion of peace when its history is full of rape, murder, beheadings, stonings, slavery, looting, all of which still occurs in the Middle East today. I’m not seeing any peace there, unless it’s in the calm before the storm the bring on. (NEWS FLASH: We are in the storm!)

    Muslims feel superior to others, believing they worship the one true God. They say ‘God is one, not three’–as they suppose the God of the Bible is (regarding the ‘trinity). Does this mean their one god represents peace AND simultaneously encourages his followers to lie, rape and murder in his name? If so, their one god is definitely indwelt with two opposing sets of values.

    Only folly can find logic in this dual aspect of the Qur’an, which is one reason why we westerners no longer buy the Muslim mantra that “Islam is a religion of peace.” We now know there is a ‘but’ that follows. “Islam is a religion of peace…but we kill all who refuse to believe in Allah.”

    Read Noni Darwish’s book, “Wholly Different” if you want to get a real feel for what Islam is about. An Egyptian, born into the Muslim faith, Darwish lived 30 years under Islam. She’s been an American now a little over 30 years and is Christian. Her book highlights differences in Christianity and Islam, but you don’t need to be a Christian to recognize warped values when you see them.

    None of us thinks for one minute that all Muslims are bad people, but no westerner is impressed by the silence Muslim community maintain in the face of this evil, leaving us to face their evil acts. Like it or not, these terrorists not only embrace, but rabidly act out the violent verses in the Qur’an. No peace can dwell in the heart of a man who approves of such evil. It’s impossible to be both: peaceful AND support violence at the same time.

    After the latest London attack, it will be interesting to see if anything really changes in the efforts to clamp down on terrorists…this time. Theresa May said, “Enough is enough!” but, time will tell if she really means it or if it’s just political BS.

    On this morning’s news, someone said ‘what the world needs now is wartime leaders’. I heartily agree! The status quo hasn’t put a dent against this evil onslaught. It’s time to get off the dime and lodge serious strategic warfare against Islamic terrorism and not let up until it is wiped off the face of the earth.

    I invite Muslims who prefer to live by the peaceful verses of the Qur’an to take a look at the God who represents peace truthfully…the God of the Bible. Read 1 John 4…all 21 verses. It will speak to your inner spirit in a powerful way.

  2. Islamic Terrorism will be the new normal as long as Europeans are not willing to fight it. This is a one-sided war. The jihadists know they are at war, but the Christian West, Europe in particular, is unwilling to acknowledge the state of war.

    I think this is what Nostradamus was describing centuries ago when his prophecies warned that “negligence” and “neglect” would leave Western Europe open to an Islamic Invasion.
