Surprised? This is the new normal in Britain, as well as on the European continent. The feckless and frankly suicidal immigration policies that European Union leaders have been pursuing and are bent on continuing is the cause of all this. If free people survive in continental Europe and in Britain, they will curse the names of Theresa May, Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, et al.
“Buckingham Palace attacker with 4ft sword shouted ‘Allahu Akbar,'” by Vikram Dodd, Guardian, August 26, 2017:
A man arrested outside Buckingham Palace armed with a 4ft sword repeatedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” as police struggled to subdue him, Scotland Yard has said.
Three unarmed officers were injured – two with cuts to their hands – while detaining the man just after 8.30pm on Friday. Police are treating the incident as suspected terrorism.
Scotland Yard said the man drove at a police van just outside Buckingham Palace in a blue Toyota Prius, and stopped.
Officers subdued the suspect, a 26-year-old from Luton, Bedfordshire, with CS spray.
A Metropolitan police statement said: “Just after 8.30pm [on Friday], a car deliberately drove at a police van and stopped in front of it in a restricted area on Constitution Hill near Buckingham Palace.
“The officers, who were unarmed police constables and from Westminster borough, got out of the van and approached the car, a blue Toyota Prius.
“As they challenged the driver, who was the only occupant in the car, he reached for what we now know to be a 4ft sword which was in the front passenger footwell.
“The officers acted very quickly to detain him. During a struggle the three officers sustained minor injuries. The man, who repeatedly shouted Allahu Akbar, was incapacitated with CS spray.”…
On Saturday police were carrying out searches in the Luton area.
The Met said: “The incident is being treated as terrorism but we will remain open minded while the investigation continues.”
Commander Dean Haydon, head of the Met’s counter-terrorism command, said: “We believe the man was acting alone and we are not looking for other suspects at this stage. While we cannot speculate on what the man was intending to do – this will be determined during the course of the investigation – it is only right that we investigate this as a terrorist incident at this time.”…
