    Default This Is For Syria’ Machete- Terror Attack in London Tube

    December 5, 2015


    Various news agencies are now reporting that the man, who was unsuccessful in killing anyone despite shouting, “all of your blood will be spilled” during the attack tonight in London, is now in police custody.

    The Counter-Terrorism Command of London’s Metropolitan Police have confirmed they are treating the attack as a terrorist incident.

    The Mail reports: “After slashing his victim’s throat, the suspect threatened several other passengers before being confronted by a number of un-armed police officers.

    “The officers ordered the suspect to drop his weapon, who continued to wave the large knife.

    “After refusing to drop his knife, one officer Tazered the suspect, who dropped to the ground.

    “A number of police raced to the man and quickly handcuffed him.”

    Police are not calling the incident terrorism yet, and Scotland Yard added:

    “Police were called at 19:06hrs on Saturday, 5 December, to reports of a stabbing at Leytonstone underground station. The male suspect was reportedly threatening other people with a knife.

    “Met officers attended the scene. A man was arrested at 19:14hrs and taken to an east London police station where he remains in custody. A Taser was discharged by one of the Met officers.

    “Officers from British Transport Police are now dealing with the incident at the scene. We are aware of one man having sustained serious stab injuries. We await details of any other injuries.”

    Speaking in the wake of the stabbing, UKIP London Mayoral candidate Peter Whittle told Breitbart London: “It is shocking and terrible to witness such an apparently random attack as this on the streets of London. If, as has been reported , the attacker cried ‘this is for Syria ‘, before seriously injuring a member of the public , it is a matter of the gravest concern.”

    The assailant’s links are not yet known, but in 2012 the nearby Masjid-al-Tawhid mosque was investigated by the Charity Commission over potential terror links after a liberal imam resigned amid death threats for teaching about women’s rights and evolution.

    The imam, Dr Usama Hasan, told the BBC: “There is a danger of Muslim extremism in general, so yes there is a danger of it at the mosque.

    “Unfortunately they are serious allegations because some individuals with extremist and terrorist views slipped into the mosque over the years and preached there. ”
    Radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki also spoke there in 2003, Dr Hasan added.

    Tasered? Wow. Not a single shot fired.

    Go figure...

    I think the response would have been a bit more severe if the nutcase had an AK47.

    Yes, but you can confront a man wielding a knife with a Taser, or even a baseball bat for example. You can't stop a determined person with a gun without another gun.

    Now if Britain had a sound background check policy on machettes, well this never would have happened.

    Completely agree. Like another poster said, if the lunatic had a gun, the results would've been very different.

    Glad it worked out ok. But tasers are only accurate at close ranges and sometimes have little to no effect on the subjects. If I'm packing I'm pulling in that situation. But that's just me.

    There are certain restrictions on the purchasing and carrying of knives, although not a background check as such, no.

    One of the things about which I worry (amongst too many to mention) is how our bobbies may end up routinely carrying firearms...It's something of which I've always been very proud - that, up to now, it hasn't really been required. I think, with the best will in the world, it changes the dynamic between police and citizens...It's a crying shame that, as a consequence of the way this world is going, "deadly force" is now being mooted as a very real possibility...
