An incident which is being treated as a terrorist attack has killed one and injured ten as a van drove through a crowd near Finsbury Park mosque. The suspect is believed to be a 48-year-old white male, who, according to eyewitnesses, decried:
“I’m going to kill all Muslims, I’m going to kill all Muslims.”
After being wrestled to the ground by a mob, he is supposed to have yelled:
“Kill me, kill me.”

The mosque near which the attack occurred was frequented by Al-Qaida operatives “The shoe bomber” Richard Reid and 9/11 suspect Zacarias Moussaoui. The mosque also gained notoriety when weapons training occurred inside the mosque and when the now convicted terrorist Abu Hamza became its Imam.

Of course, people are already blaming Tommy Robinson for the attack.

The Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Muslim Council of Britain blames the rising tide of ‘Islamophobia’ for the attack.
