One suspect is reportedly in custody following last night’s attack on a mosque in London’s Finsbury Park area.

As the BBC reports, London Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick has described the incident as “quite clearly” an attack on Muslims, one which police are treating as terror-related.

“People in the Muslim community, attending prayers, will see their police protecting them in coming days,” she reportedly added.

Counter-terrorism official Neil Basu, meanwhile, stated that a number of people are seriously injured. Basu stated that the incident unfolded while a man was receiving first aid. He has since died.

Global News, meanwhile, reports that 10 people are injured following the attack.

The outlet quotes British Prime Minister Theresa May as stating, “this morning, our country woke to the news of another terrorist attack on the streets of our capital city. The second this month and every bit as sickening as those of which have come before. It was an attack that once again [targeted] the ordinary and the innocent going about their daily lives: this time British Muslims as they left a mosque having broken their fast and prayed together at this sacred time of year.”

The Muslim Council of Britain has confirmed that the attack took place as Muslims were leaving the Finsbury Park Mosque after evening prayers.

Amid reports that the suspect is white, many liberals online have decided that – unlike the previous terror attacks in London, Manchester and Westminster – this incident is worthy of immediate action and identification of “hate preachers.”

Outspoken liberal author J.K. Rowling has added her voice to the outcry.

The Anne Frank Center – which has nothing to do with Anne Frank – has done the same, with its executive director, Steven Goldstein, stating, “shame on all those who have demonized Muslims and pushed Islamophobia the world over, who won’t speak now when the victims are Muslim.”

Many are also ranting as if people aren’t referring to the incident as terror-related when, in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

    No extra patrols for non-moslems going to concerts?

    • jay mann

      In upside down land, the invaders are protected.

        Craziness rules nowadays.

  • Hairatic Rick

    Sad case of Islam-o-phobia. Nothing he could do about it, its a phobia, He cannot control his actions, it is not a racists decision, its a phobia, and the only treatment isis for you to keep Muslims away from him. Mentality ill people, are not responsible for their actions. Sad but now he can get the help he needs.

    • EyeVey

      I wonder if maybe he identified as a terrorist and wanted to try it out…

      • Hairatic Rick

        Hmmmm, transterrorist … Why not ????

  • Hairatic Rick

    Islam-o-phobia is not hate, it is fear. A phobia is a fearful mental illness, so you bigots must stop your hate towards the poor victims with Islam-o-phobia! Mentally ill people deserve our respect and help. #notAllPhobias

    • Brian

      A phobia is an “irrational fear” and there is nothing irrational about fearing Islam or Muslims. It is a backward culture that is made worse by the mental retardation that comes with excessive in breeding.

      • Hairatic Rick

        So you are saying he is sane and therefore he is 100% responsible for his actions and you and you supporters appear to agree with the Muslim Brotherhood that he and all Islam-o-phobic are just racist bigots. I disagree! We should never let terrorist define worlds. But at lease the SJW feminist will not have to send you and your lot to reeducation camps????

        • Brian

          No. I’m saying fear of Muslims is not irrational. And to that I’ll now add, based on your reply, that you have major reading comprehension problems.

          • Hairatic Rick

            Damn you are a slow one! All you have is the same old lines you have heard from other people, nothing original. Here read this very slowly so you can understand at least a quarter of it. The terror group The Muslim Brotherhood made up the non word “Islam-o-phobia” to call your lot racist and y’all fell into it: . “I’m saying fear of Muslims is not irrational.” That sentence is used to death even though you thought it was the apex of intellectual thought. HA! You are playing their game. How about instead of being their useful idiot turn the table on them. “Yes I’m Islam-o-phobic, which is an illness so you cannot call me a bigot and you must accommodate me. ” Bang, that way you have beat the SJW Marxist feminist and their jihadist pets. You don’t play chess, do you… Mate! ????

          • Brian

            Sure. You win. That response was completely logical and made a ton of sense.

          • Hairatic Rick

            I accept your surrender. ????

          • Hairatic Rick

            The next chess next move: a motion to build a Islamic center comes up to the city council. A group of concerned citizens ask that it be blocked due to it being determent to their mental health in that they are Islam-o-phobic. Only to things can happen: 1. Denied building permit for mental health reasons or 2. Admit that Islam-o-phobia is BS. You are welcome.

  • James Lipton

    I do wonder why we don’t have a name and motive yet released by police. It’d be something if he was just some guy pissed off his ass in the wrong place and time… Well… the RIGHT place and time for a white terrorist narrative.

  • Leah

    So how does it feel Muslims ? Welcome to our world. You brought this here. So if the government wont protect the people the people must protect themselves !! The mayor said it is ok and attacks are expected just a part of life

  • Luca Barbato

    To be notice: the islamophiles are blatant racists labeling the guy as “white terrorist”.

    The same people that mention the other terrorists as “mentally ill” and “depressed” and such.

  • annabeee

    Even my mother says they had this coming. The people are going to fight back.

  • DaisyToo

    Leaving aside the dubious designation of ‘terror attack’ for this homicidal brutality, I’m perfectly happy to engage in a discussion JK Rowling raises about just how this killer became radicalized. Let’s go for it!

    • Timmy Wilburn

      My guess is the bombing at a concert that killed innocent children.

    And running from all reason
    Cloaked in pride but hallow inside
    A shell of hate filled poison
    Tweet someone your outrage begun
    Virtue Signal it to death

    The liars breed on the twitter feed
    False outrage, false anger, false pain
    Virtue signal again, tweet others to shame
    But don’t claim you have a soul anymore …

    Down tweets rain like napalm flames
    in their cannibalistic feasts … yeah
    As the leaders of the dog piles like their tweets and lick at virtue gravy
    They oil the jaws of war machines to feed them with your babies.

  • I_heard_Buddy_Bolden_Say

    Finsbury Park Mosque is actually one of the ones I remember Christopher Hitchens talking about as being a hotbed for jihadi hate preachers

    • Justin Coughlan

      correct which is likely why this guy picked it, I seem to recall abu hamsa amoungst others preached there for around 5yrs during which time he radicalised muslims there before finally being arrested, Other hate preachers who’ve been allowed to spew their hate in the uk like Anjem choudary even had a platform on tv for years, and abu quatada was able to radicalise for 10yrs before he was deported, you can thank the stupidity of the left and their politically correct bs for this.

  • Heywood Jablowme

    Anders brevik. Now that guy was dedicated. This van stuff is mickey mouse.

  • rwg1949yt .

    apparently this is just a factor of living in a big city. no big deal.

  • Timothy K. Ready

    It was wrong, of course, but- I really don’t care all that much. Not losing much sleep over Muslims after that attack in Manchester, which liberals of course dismissed as not really anything to get worked up about…just two dozen dead little girls, no big deal, they mainly had white privilege anyway, right???

  • Timothy K. Ready

    Would really be hilarious if this was just some “Sh’ia-Sunni” bullshit- we still don’t have a name yet, and that is usually HIGHLY indicative of a you-know-what being involved…

    • James

      It would be a delicious bit of irony if he turns out to be a Muslim convert. Islam doesn’t care about skin color, it only cares about how willing you are to kill.

      • Timothy K. Ready

        True “diversity”…I wonder whatever happened to would-be “freedom fighter” John Walker??? Remember him?

    • 0bsoleteMan

      That sounds like what happened when Isis attacked Tehran.

      • Timothy K. Ready

        Disunity in the Muslim world is exactly what we need. I hope ISIS keeps making enemies of Persians, Kurds, Pashtun, all of them.

        • 0bsoleteMan

          Disunity is islam has been the norm since the Sunni-Shia split that occurred after mohammed died. And within those two sects there is even more disunity. Of course each particular sect thinks that it is “true islam” and everyone else is an apostate.

          The rest is violent and bloody history.

          • Timothy K. Ready

            The kind of insane hate between them can be seen in the history of Pakistan, splitting into two separate countries after the Bangladeshi cyclone in ’71. And that was just pure racial hate. If ISIS fucks up and really pushes Iran, there will be general war in the region, and we need to stay OUT by all means.

  • Debra Jeniski Breto

    Glad I do not live in England. You all have your ideas backwards. English citizens BEFORE terrorists who refuse to assimilate. Good luck ….

  • Aitch748 the Дeplorable

    So terrorism is just “part and parcel of living in a world-class city” until white people start doing it. Gotcha.

  • FrightKnight

    It’s almost funny watching everyone in the media falling over themselves to say how this is a terrorist attack and to ensure the world knows they’re having exactly the same response as they do when it’s a Daesh atrocity. To my mind, this is just highlighting an “us and them” mentality.
    I’d love to take J.K Rowling up on her offer to “talk about how the Finsbury Park terrorist was radicalised”. Trying to implicate the likes of Nigel Farage and Katie Hopkins is not helping Muslims one bit. The Left are stifling peoples views and making them feel alienated. Unsurprisingly, people are getting angry. The anger needs to be directed at those pushing the Leftist agenda though, not people trying to get on with their lives.

  • Jeff Johnson

    Imagine, if Maniac Muslims poking the British bear get this response, what would happen if they did it in the US (that has FAR more weapons in the hands of citizens than the UK)?

  • Monkey Profiler

    The Mayor said This is part and parcel when living in London LMFAO ….I’m not excusing this horrible crime but the double standards need to stop. I think every wacko muslim and non muslim will now use trucks to kill . HA …..Part and parcel .

  • Monkey Profiler

    Well the Muslims gave him the Idea .

  • Monkey Profiler

    Unfortunately this will be he norm from WACKOS !!!

  • Guy Kuder

    TIT FOR TAT MUZHATS LOL

  • Sam Smither

    This is what happens when stupid government officials don’t listen to the majority.

  • fed up

    Please don’t judge peaceful and moderate islamaphobes by the actions of one islamaphobe.
