“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4)
“‘This is for Allah, stop living this life’: What London terror knifemen screamed as they slit Australian victim’s throat in scenes ‘like a horror movie’ in packed restaurant during rampage that killed eight,” by April Glover and Max Margan, Daily Mail Australia, June 11, 2017:
An Australian woman and her partner who survived the London terror attack have described the moment three jihadi terrorists stormed the restaurant where they worked.
Candice Hedge, 31, from Brisbane, had her throat slashed during the rampage by three men who crashed a car through crowds on London Bridge last Saturday night before attacking innocent bystanders with knives.
Eight people died as the knifemen screaming Islamist slogans entered restaurants and pubs randomly attacking anyone in their path, before they were shot dead by police.

Recalling the ordeal in her first media interview, she described how she looked her attacker in the eye seconds before she was stabbed.
‘He looked at me and I looked at him, it really happened so quickly,’ Ms Hedge said.
Of the moment she was wounded, she said: ‘It was one quick go and that was it. I was vomiting blood.’
The terrorist had slashed Ms Hedge’s throat, leaving a deep cut that almost tore through her vocal cords and main artery.
‘I could feel the amount of blood and it was warm on my hand,’ she said.
‘And I could see how much it was and, you know, you see horror movies – it was like that. I was thinking for a moment that I wasn’t going to make it.’
The area the terrorists had struck was cordoned off and no ambulances were allowed to enter in fear the attacks were still ongoing.
Ms Hedge was forced to head towards medical help on foot while clutching a piece of cloth to her bleeding throat.
‘I was just thinking, “I don’t want to die. I want to get through this.” And I wanted to get out of there as well. I wanted to get to safety,’ she said….
