One Person Dead After Van Slams Into Pedestrians Near London Mosque In "Terrorist Attack"

Update:  One person was dead as a result of what the police called a terrorist attack, but police said it was too early to say if it was a result of the attack. Eight people were rushed to hospitals and two were treated at the scene.

A 48-year-old man suspected of being the driver was held down by members of the public at the scene and was been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement. He was transported to a hospital as a precaution and will be taken into custody, police said. There were conflicting witness accounts of the number of assailants, but police said there are no other suspects at this point.

Witnesses cited by the WSJ said the driver appeared to deliberately steer a white van into the crowd after Ramadan prayers in the Finsbury Park neighborhood not long after midnight. The man jumped out of the van and bystanders grabbed him and held him down as he shouted anti-Muslim obscenities, they said.

“We saw a van was driving very fast, so we thought at the beginning he wanted to catch the traffic light,” said Saaeed Hashi, a 28-year-old who said he witnessed the attack. “But he didn’t. He hit a woman first and then two men. He carried on, and another three, or four, or five.”

Hashi said he and five others pinned the alleged attacker to the ground after he jumped out of the van. The man screamed obscenities about Muslim people as he tried to escape. Hashi said the alleged attacker, a muscular man with a tattoo, bruised him and ripped his white T-shirt.

The Muslim Council of Britain said that the attack appeared to be motivated by Islamophobia.

“We urge calm as the investigation establishes the full facts, and in these last days of Ramadan, pray for those affected and for justice,” Harun Khan, the organization’s secretary-general said in a statement.

On Monday morning, Neil Basu, deputy assistant commissioner of London’s police and senior national coordinator for counter terrorism, said the incident was being treated as a terrorist attack but that “no matter what his motivation proves to be, we are keeping an open mind.” He said it was too early to say if the one death was “as a result of this attack.” The attack unfolded while the man who died was already receiving first aid from the public at the scene.

Extra police would be deployed around London, especially to protect Muslims, he said. Security in the city has already been bolstered after a series of attacks, including two vehicle attacks, which have rattled the U.K.

Just over two weeks ago, three assailants mowed down people on London Bridge before stabbing people with knives, leaving a total of eight people dead. In March, an attacker used a vehicle to hit pedestrians outside the British Parliament, killing five.

A van plowed into pedestrians on Seven Sisters road in the Finsbury Park area in north London just after 12:20am London Time, in what the police has described a "major incident." There are "a number of casualties being worked on at the scene," London police said in a statement, with at least 10 people injured according to press reports.

The incident happened near the prominent Finsbury Park Mosque as witnesses claim the driver intentionally struck the victims; a male driver, who has not been identified, has been taken into police custody while the van appears to be rented. LBC radio adds that there has been a "huge emergency response" and ambulances have been dispatched to help the injured.

One witness told Sky News that the incident happened after worshippers were leaving the Finsbury Park mosque after midnight prayers.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing bystanders wrestle the suspect to the ground and pin him down until officers arrived.

According to the Telegraph, pictures posted on social media show more than a dozen emergency vehicles near the UKCG Help Centre at the junction of Seven Sisters Road and the A503 Tollington Road.

So far, the incident is not being called a terrorist attacks, as a person has been arrested unlike previous incidents.

One eyewitness speaking to LBC said the van had hit people on the pavement, but had not collided with a building. "It looked like he had lost control of the van or something," he said.  Locals said they had heard shouting and a helicopter was circling overhead.

Another caller told LBC her sister was at the scene when it happened. She said she described it as "something from a horror movie, everyone running everywhere".

Some social media reports describe the attack as "Islamophobic", and described the attack as a van "randomly swerving off the main road and running over several Muslim men."

The U.K. Muslim Council of Britain said they had been told worshippers were ran over as they left a local mosque. "Our prayers are with the victims," they said on Twitter.

One caller told LBC said people from a local mosque had been drinking coffee at a cafe by the mosque. He said he had seen six people on the floor. Another caller said:  "I saw police giving CPR, getting the heart going again and another guy on the floor."

There was no immediate word on an exact number of victims according to LBC, whose live broadcast can be heard here.

According to the Guardian, Al Qaeda operatives including the “shoebomber” Richard Reid and Zacarias Moussaoui attended the Finsbury Park mosque. In 2002, weapons training had taken place inside the building. The mosque rose to notoriety when Abu Hamza al-Masri became Imam of the Mosque due to his extremist ideologies and views on terrorism.

- It's always unexpected!

You get a shiver in the dark
It's raining in the park
But meantime
South of the river
You stop and you hold everything
A band is blowing Dixie
Double four time
You feel alright
When you hear that music ring

[Verse 2]
Well, now you step inside
But you don't see too many faces
Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down
Competition in other places
But the horns, they blowin' that sound
Way on down south
Way on down south, London town

I bet it was a native londoner who has had enough.

I do not condone violence but I can certainly see this as there is no remedy for the common person to what is happening there.

Endgame Napoleon's picture

No, violence just begets more retaliatory violence. Thing is, Britain did not have to import the violent factionalism. All they had to do was to keep
immigration numbers at reasonable levels instead of obsessing about birth rates and concocting ever-more elaborate social-engineering structures to support their theories. The most prosperous countries in the world are not the most populous.

The English can still win this war if it is fought sooner, rather than later. Some are counting on that "retaliatory violence".

from Albert Pike letter - 1871 :

"The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the "agentur" (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions."

 

"The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm." 

 

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.

Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion… We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.

Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.

This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."

They'll end up putting ugly barriers all over Britain, Europe and probably the US, just to accommodate more welfare-buttressed, mass immigration. Maybe, construction guys will get some work out of building the ugly barriers to prevent humans from mass murdering. It will probably not be the citizens of our respective countries who get the work, though.

Perfect timing.  ISIS just magically decided to help distract from the fact that Iran just outed the US and Israel for controlling and funding ISIS.  The timing of these things are always convenient.  These idiots are working themselves into quite the corner.  Iran also mentioned Zionist plans.  I wonder what plans those could be.

The West in general needs to stop mass immigration from everywhere. We are already diverse. What they need to worry about is assimilation of immigrants who are already citizens, with new immigration limited to a very vetted, very pro-Western few.

Vatican masonic order of jesuits Illuminati rule the world for centuries, they are building theirs New World Order - one government, one religion, global socialism-technocracy, depopulation(because overpopulation destroying biosphere) - check Georgia Guidestones also who has funded it, "order out of chaos"- they create a crisis and than they resolve it towards NWO.

Important people in a society works for them, they are giving careers for obedience, we are living in a social pyramid system managed by jesuit masonic order.

Just learn why jesuits were suppressed for 200 years in western countries and were allowed to return only a few decades ago - also in USA (there is a pattern easy to recognize). They escaped to Russia and Columbia and created in an underground Illuminati masonic sect.

Society of Jesus was the most powerful intelligence agency - of Vatican - and they still are, all national intelligence agencies are controlled by jesuits, rest is a theater and actors.

First Rothschild Nathan was rescued by jesuits from a camp and they made him theirs banker, he was not a smart Jew that become extremely rich, but he was just working for most powerful intelligence agency, also Soros is Christian Knight of Malta same as Rothschilds, Rockefeller, Brzezinski..., and Bush and Clinton are Skull and Bones - it is also an jesuit organisation and jesuit symbol, deceased Rockefeller read Bible every day.

Templars were bankers and later jesuits took that buisness, it is that simple.

Jesuit masonic order works by an undercover organisatios in order to hide.

Bill Hughes, "The Secret Terrorists and The Enemy Unmasked

"The Rothschilds were Jesuits who used their Jewish background as cover their sinister activities.

The Jesuits, hands Rothschilds and financier Nicholas Biddle, sought to take control over the banking system of the United States. "

 

Napoleon Bonaparte; 1769-1821; emperor of the Frence

“The Jesuits are a MILITARY organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is power – power in its most despotic exercise – absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man [i.e., the Black Pope, the Superior General of the Jesuits]. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms [sic] – and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuses…”

 

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865; 16th President of the United States

“The war [i.e., the American Civil War of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits.”

 

Marquis de LaFayette (1757-1834; French statesman and general. He served in the American Continental Army under the command of General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War.)

“It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated MOST of the wars of Europe.”

 

Edmond Paris (Author of the book The Secret History of the Jesuits)

“The public is practically unaware of the overwhelming responsibility carried by the Vatican and its Jesuits in the starting of the two world wars – a situation which may be explained in part by the gigantic finances at the disposition of the Vatican and its Jesuits, giving them power in so many spheres, especially since the last conflict.”

 

R. W. Thompson (Ex-Secretary, American Navy)

“[The Jesuits] are the deadly enemies of civil and religious liberty.

 

Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881; famous Russian novelist)

“The Jesuits…are simply the Romish army for the earthly sovereignty of the world in the future, with the Pontiff of Rome for emperor…that’s their ideal. …It is simple lust of power, of filthy earthly gain, of domination – something like a universal serfdom with them [i.e., the Jesuits] as masters – that’s all they stand for. They don’t even believe in God perhaps.”

 

"The Jesuit Order, therefore, stands before us as the embodiment of a system which aims at temporal political domination through temporal political means, embellished by religion, which assigns to the head of the Catholic religion - the Roman Pope - the role of a temporal overlord, and under shelter of the Pope-King, and using him as an instrument, desires itself to attain the dominion over the whole world."

Count von Hoensbroech, 1911, German Noble and ex-Jesuit

 

Pope Clement XIV (Who had “forever” abolished the Jesuit Order in 1773)

“Alas, I knew they [i.e., the Jesuits] would poison me; but I did not expect to die in so slow and cruel a manner.” (1774)

 

“Above all I have learned from the Jesuits. And so did Lenin too, as far as I recall. The world has never known anything quite so splendid as the hierarchical structure of the [Roman] Catholic Church. There were quite a few things I simply appropriated from the Jesuits for the use of the [Nazi] Party.

Adolph Hitler (1889-1945; Nazi leader and chancellor of Germany from 1933-1945)

 

"The Fuhrer had come to power, thanks to the votes of the Catholic Zentrum, only five years before, but most of the objectives cynically revealed in 'Mein Kampf were already realized; this book, an insolent challenge to the western democracies, was written by the Jesuit Father Staempfle and signed by Hitler. For—as so many ignore the fact—it was the Society of Jesus which perfected the famous Pan-German programme as laid out in this book, and the Fuhrer endorsed it."

Edmond Paris, 1965 French Historian The Secret History of the Jesuits. Page 138

 

“The Jesuits wrote the first 25 rites of Scottish Freemasonry in then College de Clermont in Paris in 1754”

Obedience to Rome

After receiving a message from Pope Benedict asking the Society of Jesus to affirm its fidelity to the magisterium and the Holy See, the Congregation presided over by Nicolás responded, "The Society of Jesus was born within the Church, we live in the Church, we were approved by the Church and we serve the Church. This is our vocation... [Unity with the pope] is the symbol of our union with Christ. It also is the guarantee that our mission will not be a 'small mission,' a project just of the Jesuits, but that our mission is the mission of the Church."

If he's white, CNN and NBC will immediately label him a white supremacist, homophobe, racist with ties to right wing nazi groups. Chuck Todd or Rachel macow wil gleefully add their fiction....."Probably a Trump supporter also."

If he's a muzzie, then CNN will label him as a tender, abused gentle giant, hurt by bullying white students at school and simply reacting like any other poor kid would to hate speech from the right. Meanwhile, they'll be looking for a photo of the muslim when he was 8 years old.

If Muslims have killed, it must be investigated which type of Muslim - Shia or Sunni. They have been known to kill each other with regularity,  especially during Ramadan. Somehow I think the Brits are too gelded to have done it.
