A Beheading in Woolwich
The big story in Britain today happened in Woolwich, a southeastern suburb of London.
Two jihadis set upon a serving off duty soldier in the street, hacked him to death with machetes and cleavers, beheaded him, and then left his body in the middle of the road. As you can see in the above photos this was done in broad daylight in front of a number of witnesses,and the perpetrators were not at all embarrassed or reticent about what they were doing or how they felt about it.
During the attack, the two men screamed 'Allahu Akbar!' repeatedly and asked witnesses to film the murder on their cell phone cameras. One of the killers looked at those filming athe murder and said in a clear south London accent‘We swear by Allah we will never stop fighting you.You people will never be safe. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. The only reasons we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day.’
When the police arrived 20 minutes or so later, the jihadis confronted them with weapons that included a revolver. An armed female police officer shot them down when she was charged, but apparently did not kill the two men, who are now in custody and were taken to a police hospital.
Prime Minister David Cameron was quick to label this a 'terror attack'.
The incident stunned Britain. Woolwich is not a no go area Muslim of London, and in fact is the home of the The Royal Artillery Barracks. The attack took place less than 200 yards away from the barracks and apparently was proceeded by a car crash.
One eyewitness claims the two men came out of a blue Vauxhall that had crashed, dragging 'a white guy behind them'. Another eyewitness claims that the soldier was deliberately run over by the car, after which the Muslims seized him and dragged him into the street.They then proceeded to hack him to death.
The attack was condemned in strong terms by the Muslim Council of Britain, the primary Muslim organization in the UK. "We condemn this unreservedly,’ a spokesman said. ‘Our thoughts are with the victim and his family.
‘We understand the victim is a serving member of the Armed Forces. Muslims have long served in this country’s Armed Forces, proudly and with honour."
Last night Al Qaeda celebrated the murder of the soldier on its main website, Al-Shamoukh Al-Islam, saying: ‘Allah is the greatest – the liquidation of a British soldier in their own home – South London.’
More than 200 members of the English Defence League gathered in Woolwich last night. A speech was made by EDL leader Tommy Robinson, with the crowd chanting ‘Rule Britannia’ and ‘EDL’. The demonstrators were kept under very close watch by the police.
