While England is still very much reeling from the terror attacks at a pop concert in Manchester just days ago, terror has struck once again.
The people of London were sent screaming and running for their lives as two terror attacks were carried out, both in London this evening.
One on the famous London bridge, where a van plowed into dozens of people, and one where a lunatic knife-wielding man began stabbing and mauling anyone in his path. Dozens have been hospitalized, and while those present for the attacks as well as police and first responders initial goal is to repair the damage and keep the citizens safe, it seems that the media’s main goal is to keep quiet that the attackers were shouting that their acts were done “for Allah.”
Sky News has been streaming live reports of the incident and continuously updating about the search for the perpetrators.

“London was gripped by two acts of terror late Saturday — a van crashing into a crowd at London Bridge and a series of stabbings nearby, police confirmed — just the latest attacks to strike the United Kingdom in recent weeks.
“More than one” person was killed, the BBC reported. Police did not immediately confirm any numbers of dead or injured. Witnesses told Sky News and the BBC that the attackers shouted ‘This is for Allah.’

Video broadcast on British TV showed a man on the ground who appeared to have canisters strapped to him. In addition, police conducted a series of controlled explosions in the area, according to reporters there.
The white van careened off the road before striking several people on the busy bridge around 10 p.m. local time. Gunfire erupted at the bridge, though witnesses said it could have come from police.
One witness at Borough Market, a nightlife destination near the bridge, told Britain’s Press Association she was in a restaurant when three men entered, then ‘stabbed someone in the face and someone in the stomach.’ She continued, ‘One of them had a big knife, then he came in and walked around the restaurant, I guess they just kind of stabbed anyone that they saw and knocked things on the ground and then we just hid.’

A witness identified only as Ben told the BBC: ‘We saw people running away and then I saw a man in red with a large blade, at a guess 10 inches long, stabbing a man, about three times. He added, ‘It looked like the man had been trying to intervene, but there wasn’t much he could do. He was being stabbed quite coldly and he slumped to the ground.’
The attacks came just over two months after the car-and-knife attack at British Parliament and less than two weeks after the suicide bombing at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester that killed 22 people. Britain just recently lowered its official terror threat from ‘critical.’
Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!

The threats targeting Europe have been among the worst that American intelligence officials have seen in a decade, a U.S. government official told Fox News. Both London Mayor Sadiq Khan and U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert described the attacks as ‘cowardly.’
Video from the Borough Market area showed officers with guns bursting into nearby bars and ordering people to get down on the floor. Frightened onlookers around the bridge walked away with their hands on their heads. The Royal Naval Lifeboat Institution was helping with evacuations.

Less than two hours after the bridge attack, police warned they were responding to an ‘incident’ in the Vauxhall area, more than a mile away, but confirmed early Sunday it was an unrelated stabbing.
Prime Minister Theresa May and President Trump were briefed with updates.
The prime minister is set to lead a meeting of the government emergency response committee Sunday, British officials added. President Trump tweeted: ‘Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!’

‘This was a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors to our city enjoying their Saturday night,’ Khan said. ‘I condemn it in the strongest possible terms. There is no justification whatsoever for such barbaric acts.’
The United States condemns the cowardly attacks targeting innocent civilians in London this evening,’ Nauert told reporters. ‘The United States stands ready to provide any assistance authorities in the United Kingdom may request.’
‘We are working with our interagency partners and foreign counterparts to gain further insight into reported attacks against civilians on London Bridge and in the surrounding area,’ the Department of Homeland Security told Fox News. ‘At this time, we have no information to indicate a specific, credible terror threat in the United States.’
‘We’re monitoring the situation in London and we’re in touch with British authorities,’ New York Police Department spokesman J. Peter Donald said.
Transportation officials said the busy London Bridge station has been closed at the request of police; two additional stations also were closed.”
It’s amazing that anyone could still think that those who serve the person who’s being attributed with these acts could be innocent. The media seems to be in on the push to say that these were just extremists, and really the rest of the Muslims and/or immigrants who ascribe to the same ideals are just fine. These were heinous attacks, just like the ones in Manchester, and just like the ones carried out on 9/11 in New York. All awful, all done by people who believe the same things, and people who want to come live among us.
And these attacks were carried about by someone with a van and someone with a knife. Further proof that the weapons aren’t the problem in violence. Unless the liberals plan to ban motor vehicles and any food that requires a knife to cut it with, they’re going to have to admit that violence isn’t a gun issue or a knife issue, and it’s certainly not a car issue. It’s a heart issue.
