“Police confirmed terrorism was “one line of inquiry that we should explore.'” Well, I suppose it’s a remote possibility in a case like this one, but really, a Somali Muslim lunging at random people with a knife? How could that have anything to do with terrorism?
In September 2014, the Islamic State issued this call to Muslims:
If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him. Do not lack. Do not be contemptible. Let your slogan be, “May I not be saved if the cross worshipper and taghut (ruler ruling by manmade laws) patron survives.”
“‘Nice to wake up to such news’ Vile ISIS supporters celebrate Russell Square ‘terror’ attack just hours after knife bloodbath,” by Maryse Farag, The Sun, August 4, 2016:
SUPPORTERS of the barbaric Islamic State are celebrating the horrific knife attack which left a woman in her 60s killed and five others injured during a bloodbath in central London believed to be terror-related.
Sick messages were posted on an ISIS-linked social media channel spreading the news of the attack.
One Arabic account, which posted snaps from the scene, wrote: “And here you have a picture of the site where the stabbing took place, Russell Square in the centre of ‘Christendom’ London.”
Another account added: “It’s nice to wake up to such news.”
Further messages make references to Sharia, which is the law of Islam and filtrate more IS news and propaganda.
Last night, police were called to Russell Square in London after reports of an attack by a knife-wielding man.
Witnesses described victims “screaming and covered in blood” following the rampage in which the woman – believed to be a Spanish speaker enjoying a hen do – was brutally knifed around 10.30pm last night.
Another terrified onlooker described the crazed knifeman “lunging for anyone he could see” as police confirmed mental health was a likely factor.
A 19-year-old man was arrested at the scene after being tasered by police in Russell Square – just yards from where one of the 7/7 terror attack bombs detonated in 2005.
