The jihadist attack on British Parliament is the latest in a twelve-year history of jihad attacks. It was not the worst in terms of casualties, but noteworthy for its location, in the backyard of the UK’s highest legislative authority and seat of its governing powers.
The article below serves as a reminder of the jihadist desire to shed the blood of the infidel in any possible way. Yet beyond the usual tawdry displays of emotion that follow each murderous jihadi rampage, UK leaders seem to care little about the danger jihadists and Islamic supremacists pose to their people.
We can only hope that this latest attack will not be downplayed and virtually forgotten, as were many of the other jihad attacks over the past twelve years. Unfortunately, more deadly attacks are essentially certain, given the emboldening of jihadists by British authorities in their excessive political correctness and reckless immigration practices, which enable jihadis to enter the country freely, including those who are driven on by the Islamic State’s exhortations to kill unbelievers and promises of blessings from Allah for spilling the blood of the infidel.
Yet even prior to the Muslim refugee crisis, while the Islamic State was still in its beginning stages, the Express wrote about the “vast new influx of eastern European migrants” in an article entitled “Mass immigration is destroying our once great nation”:
WHAT is so sickening is that we never voted for this upheaval. Mass immigration and the creation of a multi-cultural society have all been imposed without a shred of democratic consent. Opinion polls show that the overwhelming majority of the public want tighter border controls.
Eastern Europeans are one thing, but Muslim migrants are a much greater threat because of jihad and Sharia. Now it’s up to the British public to demand more from its leaders. Islamic State supporters have been posting social media messages “applauding the knife-wielding suspect and called the attack ‘blessed'”; and the Mirror reports that “security services in the UK have stopped 13 terror attacks in the last four years and there are 500 ‘live’ terror probes underway.”
In a chilling warning just over three weeks ago, Metropolitan police Commissioner Mark Rowley stated: “Now we worry about everything from fairly simple attacks with knives or using vehicles all the way through to the more complex firearms attacks.”
“TIMELINE: Twelve Years of Terror Attacks in the UK”, Breitbart, March 22, 2017:
LONDON (AP) — Britain has been targeted anew by what authorities are calling a terrorist incident. A look at other attacks on the country in recent years:
MARCH 22, 2017
An attacker stabbed a police officer at Britain’s Parliament before being shot by police, while a vehicle ran over pedestrians on nearby Westminster Bridge at around the same time. One woman was killed, others injured.
Far-right supporter Thomas Mair shot and killed British lawmaker Jo Cox who had campaigned for the UK to remain in the European Union, one week before Britain’s referendum on its EU membership. The attack shocked the country and focused attention on home-grown far-right extremism in Britain.
DEC. 5, 2015
An Islamic State-inspired taxi driver tried to behead a passenger in the east London Underground station of Leytonstone. Somali-born Muhiddin Mire was sent to a high-security mental hospital to serve a life sentence. The judge ruled that Mire had been motivated by events in Syria. The incident came days after Parliament approved British airstrikes on Islamic State group targets in Syria.
MAY 22, 2013
Two British-born, al-Qaida-inspired extremists stabbed off-duty soldier Lee Rigby to death on a busy south London street. The men ran Rigby down with their vehicle and then used a cleaver to hack him to death. Images of attacker Michael Adebolajo holding a butcher knife and cleaver with bloodied hands in the moments after killing shocked people around the world and sparked fears of Islamist extremism in Britain. Adebolajo and his accomplice were sentenced to life in prison.
Two men were arrested after they drove a Jeep Cherokee into Glasgow Airport’s terminal in Scotland and set it ablaze. Authorities said the attack was linked to a failed car bombing a day before in London’s West End, where an ambulance crew outside a nightclub spotted smoke coming from a Mercedes that turned out to be rigged with explosives. A second Mercedes also filled with explosives was found hours later in an impound lot.
JULY 7, 2005
In the worst peacetime attack on Britain this century, four Al-Qaida-inspired bombers blew themselves up on three subway trains and a bus in London, killing 52. Three of the bombers were British-born, all of Pakistani descent…
