why the debate on his the perpetrators ethnic origin?

it looks like based on the information that we have that this was the work of a radical Islamist, their ethnic origin is not important at this stage. we should be discussing what has happened and the response to events.


Oh I know, but you get the usual suspects coming out of the woodwork screaming "racists". Despite the fact that islam is not a race.

Yes, it seems like that. Quick question. Was the victim Muslim? I just discovered this story on Facebook. Crazy!


the reports i have been reading say that one of the men was chanting "Allahu Akbar", its very much a chant that people would associate with a Muslim and radical Muslims have a habit of chanting this when they attack.

Listen to his accent-he has a London accent,maybe was London born.
But look at his eyes and facial movements-he is a sick person,who needed to be picked up by the system before this horror IMO.
He wants us to overthrow government he said on the clip-but why in hell would you kill an unarmed man on the street to try to acheive this?
He is sick in the head,and the video of him is making me feel sick to my stomach.
May God rest the soul of the man who was killed.

Yeah, it would be interesting if the victim is Muslim. Which would explain why they attacked him in broad daylight. Seems that many Muslims would have different political views that could blow up and cause strife.

The UK must get use to news like this. Don't be racist though, because obviously it was just co-incidental the attacker was muslim.

I am in fact quite disturbed by a comment on BBC news channel,that "sources said they were of Muslim appearance."(of the attackers)
That sounds to me a generalisation in the extreme



Unless they were doing the allahsnackbar thing. Which they were. And then said it was in the name of allah. Which they apparently did.

Not so much a generalisation then is it?

What's there to be racist about? The one bloke identified is African, hardly your stereotypical Muslim. Most Africans in the UK are Christian last I knew

This thread is getting really quite pathetic

OK he was Muslim the UK has been attacked by Islamic fundamentalists yet again.

But we have millions of Muslims that life in the UK who will condemn this attack just as much as the rest of us.

Lets not turn this into another “all Muslims are evil we need to stop all immigration into the UK” type of thread.

Get of the “Muslim” thing and lets actually start a intelligent discussion about what has happened today.

Muslims ordinary people are not evil , ISLAM is evil in his core and all those who practicing Islam extremly (like sharia law ) are collecting evil from the religion itself. If they like sharia law why are they coming to Britain , beatiful country.

On my way home from work today, I got off at Woolwich Arsenal DLR Station and saw police everywhere. I saw someone I know, and they told me about what happened as they saw everything. 2 black men run over a white man wearing a "Help for Heroes" T-Shirt, and then proceeded to try to hack his head off with a machete. Apparently some women were trying to help the dying man on the floor and shield him from the attackers. There were chants of "Allahu Akbar", and the men were trying to get people to take pictures and videos, saying that they had "Had Enough" and spouting Islamist propaganda.

What happened is terrible, however if you want to be a pawn in the governments agenda for global domination, you must be aware of the risks involved becoming the face of oppression.

I must say though, even though I was there less than an hour after it happened, Transport for London got me home in no time!

Edit: I forgot to mention, apparently the victim was a soldier from the nearby Army Barracks.

It's ridiculous that many are afraid to discuss radical Islamic teachings kill Muslims and non Muslims alike who go against their teachings on Islam. You can longer sweep this under the rug and wish this would go away.

Apologies for not responding sooner, had to pick my Grandson up.



The tone and intention of your post was clear, asking what I expected people to do in response to this... what else do you suggest?
I didn't see you offer any alternative responses that could be made, so what response do YOU think the people of this country should give to this event?


You read into it what you wanted to read into it to fit into your pre-conceived opinion.

I didn't offer an alternative because I don't have one - i've never professed to have all the answers.

I understand if people are angry and upset about this attack - that does not in any way shape or form mean that I support any sort of reprisal attacks against innocent, law abiding Muslims.



Yes, I do expect people to be angry. But again, what do you expect people to do? Please elaborate on anything we can do right now as citizens to respond to this other than hear about the story and feel sorrow for the victim and their family?


I'd expect people to show at least some sort of regard and consideration for the victim before posting sensationalist fears about reprisal attacks.



Sorry I wasn't visibly weeping all over my keyboard and taking pictures for you!


You showed absolutely zero concern about the victim yet were very fearful of reprisal attacks.

Please show me examples of where there were reprisal attacks in the past.
There were none whatsoever that I recall after 7/7, so on what grounds do you assume that there will be now, history suggests that there will not be.

You may have very little regard for the British people but I personally grant them a little bit more credit than you appear to do so.



This is a weak attempt, and pretty shameful too.




People here know me a little by now, and it goes without saying we all feel sorrow for the victim. Suggesting we don't is a pretty sick way to try to score points.


Complete bollocks.
You are judged on you acts and deeds.
You expressed absolutely no disgust at the attack or sympathy for the victim and seem pre-occupied with reprisal attacks.
Why should I assume that you felt anything for the victim?

What is shameful is your attempts to to suggest that the British people are going to launch widespread reprisal attacks when everything suggests there will be nothing of the sort.



I'm concerned about the security of this country, or do you think I should only be concerned about that when it's those "evil muzzies!!!!!" ?


You say people know you by now, that means nothing.
I'm very much concerned about security in this country, not just 'when it's those evil muzzies', but it also includes those 'evil muzzies' when it is indeed them who are threatening this country's security - as some do every now and again.

Its sad news which ever way we look at it. No one knows the why or what reason at this stage. We do know that its one of the spirit in the sky gangs. They shouted God is great? hahaha The gentle kind loving god is great? Some god....
A great pile of crap is my opinion on these gods.
Maybe it has some thing to do with our elected muppets, that hague guy wants to arm muslim terrorists in Syria.
Will it cause a back lash? Who knows what will happen now. Guess we will have to wait till the soaps are finished then perhaps the sheeple may react to this. Personally I think that as we are at war with these muslims, then we should do what the yanks did to the japs during WW2. Lock em all up till its over.

Terrible story - but there's no point getting your Somali/Islamophobia on. Fact is, this pair of cowards must have had a jump on the soldier (assuming that's true) - if those two knobheads had come up against a British soldier or genuine British Muslim on fair terms with this nonsense, then those two lads would be licking their wounds right now in jail.

I have numerous Islamic friends, and I know their reaction will be of anger. This sort of rubbish represents British-Islam incredibly poorly. This is simply backwards rubbish from useless, bitter sects.

You won't 'terrorise' British folk like this.

Anyhow, whether terrorism related or not, we're dealing with scum here. My sincere condolances to the family.

ISLAM is evil in his core


go create a thread about that then if you feel so strongly about your entirely ignorant and xenophobic views.

this is a thread about a terrorist attack on the streets of London lets talk about that please and not your views that Islam is "evil".
