Sadiq Khan Responds to Muslim Fears of White British Terrorism

When the dead and injured were whites victimized by Muslims, London Mayor Sadiq Khan told the city they would just have to get used to it.

The proverbial shoe is now on the proverbial other foot.

A white man succeeded in killing one Muslim and injuring several more last week. Now, it’s a CRISIS.

LONDON — Authorities have pledged to protect British Muslims in the wake of Monday’s terror attack outside a London mosque, amid rising hostility and fears of more copycat atrocities.

London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan said he would increase the number of police outside mosques as he revealed there had been a spike in hate crime following attacks on London Bridge and Britain’s parliament.

The city’s police commissioner, Cressida Dick, said Monday’s attack, which hit worshippers during the holy month of Ramadan, was clearly “an attack on Muslims.”

Local residents told NBC News they no longer feel safe.

“We’re scared there is no safety,” said Finsbury Park resident Joi Mario, who is a practising Muslim. “People are always blaming Muslims [for attacks]. Of course people are going to hate us,” he said.

In the six days following the London Bridge terror attack, London’s Metropolitan police recorded 120 Islamophobic incidents compared to 36 during the preceding week, according to the Mayor’s office.

Police also recorded 381 racist hate crimes, compared to 313 the week before, the mayor’s office said.

Tell MAMA, a U.K. organisation that monitors anti-Muslim attacks, also detected a sharp rise in such incidents following the May 22 terrorist attack in Manchester, when a suicide-bomber attacked young concertgoers leaving an Ariana Grande gig. The number jumped from 25 in the week before the attack to 139 the following week, according to the organization. The vast majority were recorded in the local area.

Vowing “zero-tolerance” of hate crime, Khan said London would remain “uncowed by terrorism” and would “carry on being a united city.”

Britain’s Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, said extra resources to protect communities would remain in place “for as long as is needed.”

Musloids Claim Officials Slow to Label Finsbury Park a ‘terror attack’ Because Driver is ‘white’

An initial post about the van attack that ran over Muslims, killing one and injuring eight, can be read here.

Since that quick post just after the attack, events have sorted out in several directions:

1. Muslims have been complaining about British officials being slow to label the “major incident” a terror attack because the driver was a white man.

2. Muslims have been lauded as heroes for not killing the van’s driver.

Let’s see what new restrictions on freedom will come forth as a consequence of this incident. Following the last one, Teresa May blamed the Internet and threatened to regulate it even more heavily.

Here’s the story of the whining Musloids of London:

THERE were angry scenes at London’s Finsbury Park crash site as bystanders and commentators accused officials of being reluctant to declare the incident a terror attack because the driver was “white”.

Police said in a statement there were “a number of casualties” after a van ploughed into pedestrians believed to have just finished worshipping after breaking the Ramadan fast at the Finsbury Park mosque. At least one person has died and 10 are injured. One person has been arrested following incident that happened about 12.20am local time.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May first described the situation as a “terrible incident”. She later confirmed police were treating the incident as “a potential terrorist attack”.

“Police have confirmed this is being treated as a potential terrorist attack,” Ms May said.

“I will chair an emergency meeting later this morning.

“All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene.”

Earlier, anger and frustration was mounting over accusations that officials were refusing to declare the incident as being terror related because the driver was “white” and had reportedly targeted Muslims.

One witness claimed the people who allegedly mowed down the victims were “white terrorists”.

Another witness said the driver screamed “I want to kill all Muslims” before ploughing into pedestrians.

The Muslim Council of Britain head Harun Khan said the van had “intentionally” run over people leaving night prayers for the holy month of Ramadan.

The council’s deputy head Miqdaad Versi said the incident took place “outside the Muslim Welfare House”, which is on Seven Sisters Road near the mosque.

BBC reporter Nick Robinson said “Muslims in Finsbury Park tell me this attack must be treated as what it is”.

“It’s terrorism … just like the attack on Westminster bridge,” a witness told the BBC.

Here are some commonsense Twitter reactions:

“Major Incident” as Van Plows into Pedestrians Outside London Mosque: Possible Revenge Attack?

There appears to be an assumption that the London van attack tonight was conducted by a British-European man. Let’s not ignore the possibility that a disgruntled Muslim decided to go after his fellow Muslims while motivated by revenge.

Here is the little of what we know right now, followed by a series of Tweets by British “racist” Tommy Robinson, who’s done his share of jail time for criticizing Muslim terrorists.

There have been a ‘number of casualties’ after a van reportedly hit pedestrians outside a mosque near Finsbury Park.

Police said they are dealing with a ‘major incident’ with the ambulance service also attending Seven Sisters road in North London.

Roads in the area have been blocked off.

‘There are a number of casualties being worked on at the scene,’ police said.

‘There has been one person arrested.

‘Enquiries continue. More information will be released when confirmed.’

Unconfirmed witness reports said some of those hit were Muslims, who had been leaving the mosque after evening prayers during Ramadan.
