Then what is it? If it was an accident, what explains the knives? The perpetrators are being accused of “GBH with intent,” that is, intentional grievous bodily harm. When there is an incident that looks almost identical to several other jihad attacks, including one just days ago in London, and authorities have a record of denying that obvious jihad terror attacks are really jihad terror, their assertions inspire only skepticism. This may turn out not to be terror-related indeed, but it is remarkable how much it conforms to the pattern of the London jihad attack and other recent vehicular jihad attacks followed by stabbings. In June 2015, a Muslim in Austria drove his car into a crowd, killing three, and then got out and stabbed passersby. Then in November 2016, a Muslim student at Ohio State University named Abdul Razak Ali Artan drove his car into a crowd, then got out and stabbed several others.
But this one, you see, wasn’t terror-related. It was just your ordinary sort of plowing-your-car-into-pedestrians-and-having-knives situation.
“Two knives found after car ploughs down pedestrians in Islington, London – several injured,” by Vincent Wood, Express, March 26, 2017:
A CAR ploughed through a crowd of pedestrians in Islington, London, with police finding two knives at the scene near the Old Queen’s Head pub.
At least three people have been taken to hospital following the incident which happened just before 11pm on Saturday outside the Old Queen’s Head pub on Essex Road – an area with many bars and restaurants.
Two men, who tried to run away from the scene, have been arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent and possession of points and blades after knives were found on the scene.
The Metropolitan Police have since confirmed in total four males between the ages of 17 and 19-years-old have been arrested in connection with the incident and are currently being held in police custody….
The suspects are believed to have mowed down pedestrians before jumping out of the vehicle and attempting to escape on foot.
The scene remains on lockdown as Metropolitan Police and a National Police Air Service helicopter rushed to the scene in an attempt to bring the situation under control.
Images from the scene in Essex Road appear to show pedestrians strewn along the pavement.
Two men and a woman were later taken to hospital for treatment, but their injuries are believed not to be life threatening.
James Monks, who arrived on the scene shortly after the incident, claimed a female police officer told him the victims were “seriously injured but conscious”.
Metropolitan Police say they are not treating the incident as terror related….
“The occupants decamped from the car and fled the scene on foot.
“Four males, aged between 17 and 19, have since been arrested on suspicion of a variety of offences including GBH with intent and possession of points and blades. All four remain in custody.
“Two knives were recovered at the scene; one inside the car and one found near to the car.
“Enquiries into the circumstances continue.
“This is not being treated as terrorist related.
“Officers from Islington investigate. The National Police Air Service also assisted with the investigation.
“Road closures remain in place.”…
