"For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
Not as Cain, who was of the wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him?
Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous" (1 John 3:11-12).

"It becomes important for us to clarify to the West in unequivocal terms - yet again - why we hate you and why we fight you ...
We hate you first and foremost, because you are disbelievers, you reject the oneness of Allah ...
The fact is ... our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam.
Even if you were to pay jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you ...
there is indeed a rhyme to our terrorism, warfare, ruthlessness, and brutality"

"This is for Allah" [Jihadi murderer quoted at source].

"Kill the Civilians of the Crusaders. Run over them by Vehicles. Gain Benefit from Ramadan"
[ISIS, quoted at source].

"This is the third terror attack in the UK in three months following the car and knife attack in Westminster in March, which left five people dead, and the Manchester bombing less than two weeks ago, in which 22 people were killed. It is the third car and knife attack in the UK, the first being the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby in 2013" [source].



London Bridge and Borough Market Jihad Attack

'Four Held' as Police Raid Flats in Barking 'in Connection with Terror Attack'  (04 June 2017)
"Piecing together other news that 12 people in total have been arrested. How many will be charged and convicted is another matter; police are slowly releasing those arrested last week over Manchester ... Barking, the western part of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham is a highly Islamised part of East London. There is a fine selection of mosques and 'welfare associations' to sort bruvvers from all corners of the ummah within a 10 minute walk of these flats..."

"This is for Allah": ... Officially Nothing to Do With Islam  (04 June 2017)4
"Sure they shouted, 'This is for Allah' but before long we'll be told every hour on the hour how un-Islamic it is. And some Sikh car driver ferrying passengers home will be passed off as Muslims. Meanwhile somewhere in London or Manchester, the next Islamic Jihadis are plotting their attacks. The Car Jihad has now become the default method of terror in Europe..."

Reza Aslan: Trump 'Piece of S*** for Calling for Travel Ban in Wake of London Jihad Attacks  (03 June 2017)
"Wanting to defend Americans from jihad massacres makes Trump a 'piece of s***', and 'embarrassment to America', a 'stain on the presidency', and an 'embarrassment to humankind'.  Reza Aslan has never used such strong language against, say, Islamic jihad mass murderers. Seven people are dead and twenty wounded at the hands of Islamic jihadists in London tonight, but to Reza Aslan, it is President Trump who is the piece of s***.  The jihadis are not, evidently, pieces of s*** or embarrassments to anyone. What is embarrassing is wanting to resist jihad attack. Surrender, as far as this fashionable young Islamic supremacist cannibal is concerned, is so much cooler..."

Ramadan in London  (03 June 2017)
"Yet again it has returned, the sublime and hallowed month of Ramadan - a beautiful and particularly sacred period ... it is during Ramadan, above all times, that acts of righteous slaughter and virtuous extirpation - those blessed sanguinary proofs of Islamic piety and allegiance - bring even more joy to Allah ... than they do during the remainder of the year."

If you can kill a disbelieving American or European ... or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever ... then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be ...

Of Dhimmis and Apologists and Fifth Columnists...

Breaking Up With Mr. Islam  (04 June 2017)
"Islam is peaceful. Just ask Rafiqi Islam, a loving husband, who told his wife that he had a present for her, blindfolded her to make it a surprise and then cut off her fingers. Then the rest of the Islam family mopped up the blood, while Mr. Islam threw her fingers into the trash, and after a few hours took her to the hospital where they warned her to tell the doctors that she had an accident. The proximate cause of this event was that Mrs. Islam wanted to continue her education and Mr. Islam being a good Emirati Muslim was not so fond of the idea. This is the sort of thing that Mr. Islam does from time to time. Diners in London got a surprise from Mr. Islam, three of him, who began stabbing and slashing their way through some trendy nightspots. The blindfold had been slapped on them by their own government and their own media..."

"Stop Being Politically Correct"  (04 June 2017)
"[A]s London and Manchester and Paris and Cologne and so many other Islamic atrocities show us, our elites would rather be politically correct than live. Certainly they are always willing to choose political correctness over our own lives. ... The media's smug condescension and its hollow assurances, the calls by politicians to go back to shopping and ... attending concerts, go back to the nightlife and don't worry until the next stabbing, shooting or bombing rampage begins are sadly familiar. It's a call for the people of a dying West to go back to being Eloi. ... The hard truth is that we can either be politically correct or we can survive. We can't do both."

AGAIN!  (04 June 2017)
"Everyone knows who drives HGVs through human flesh, slashes throats, sprays streets with AK rounds, blows up crowded buses and pop concerts. Not people of some nebulous Mediterranean origin, nor probable terrorists, nor even jihadists or Islamists, although here we're getting warmer. Muslims. That dread M-word that our politicians and journalists can't bring themselves to utter. Devout followers of Islam, who do murder because Islam tells them to do it. Yet no public figure has the guts to even say this out loud, much less do something about it. Quite the opposite. Mercifully, no one has yet described Islam as a religion of peace, but we can expect that clarification before the day is out, although the M-word still won't cross anyone's lips..."

May Says 'Things Need to Change' ... Repeats False ... Jihad is 'Perversion of Islam'  (04 June 2017)
"Theresa May says 'far too much tolerance of extremism in our country', and that 'when it comes to taking on extremism and terrorism things need to change.'  Then she repeats the same false and failed analysis, that the jihad 'is a perversion of Islam'. Her refusal to identify the motivating ideology behind these jihad attacks means that she will never confront this enemy properly, and never deal with the real source of the incitement to violence. And so for all her tough talk, she is doomed to failure..."

One Muslim Shot Trying to Escape, Four Others Arrested in Early Morning Raids  (04 June 2017)
"'Enough is enough', said Theresa May, but she didn't really mean it ... More business as usual: a few perfunctory arrests are made, and the British press reports on them without identifying them or giving any hint of their motivating ideology - everyone knows, and everyone is afraid to say, that these are Muslims waging a large-scale jihad against Britain and the free world. This raid didn't catch five more criminals, it caught five more soldiers in a war. As long as May refuses to admit that and recast her response accordingly, the jihad massacres will continue..."

A Lot More Than London Bridge is Falling Down  (03 June 2017)
"[T[hough the details are always different, in the end the story is always the same.

No one likely to end up as Prime Minister or Home Secretary after this Thursday's election seems minded to say that, never mind act on it. Instead, we have the usual post-terrorist theatre:..."

Just 2 Days Before Another Terror Attack in London, Mayor of London Was Calling THIS the Biggest Threat  (04 June 2017)
"Well, this tweet from London Mayor Sadiq Khan just two days before another terror attack rocked [London] hasn't aged well ... If only he was tweeting this proactively about stopping terrorism ... of course then he would have to admit that terror is a problem and that people are dying because of a ridiculous progressive narrative that says we can't be mean to terrorists..."

'carry on as normal'. He's still saying the same old stuff, even as London Bridge has fallen down on his watch. ... [He was] sworn in on the Koran. He will not call this Islamic extremism; he will not be honest about the problem we face, and until you can be honest about your problem you have no hope of dealing with it ... we've gone beyond the tipping point..."

After London: Let's Start Talking About Islam  (04 June 2017)
"Another month, another terror attack ... and already we are seeing the the same craven, baleful response that follows every act of Islamist [sic] terror. 'Watch out for an Islamophobic backlash' ... 'Don't say anything bad about this wonderful religion or its adherents', they tell us. This is a really bad response, because it is becoming increasingly clear that one of the major problems we face today is not that our society is too mean about Islam, but that it flatters Islam too much..."

Israel's Ambassador to the UK Mark Regev vowed that terror would not triumph, 'Appalled at last night's terrorist attack. Israel stands in solidarity with London' ... MK Bezalel Smotrich ... tweeted 'Good morning to all the terror experts and analysts here in Israel. It is interesting what desperation motivates the terrorists in London.

"President Trump responded to the latest Islamic terror attack in the UK by proposing common sense migration reform. He urged an end to political correctness but as London and Manchester and Paris and Cologne and so many other Islamic atrocities show us, our elites would rather be politically correct than live. ... real leadership doesn't mean lying to people until they die and perish of your lies.

Jihad: A Duty For All Muslims

Where is the Counter-Jihad?  (04 June 2017)
"I have always been careful to caution that in the face of these atrocities, we must not lash out at innocent Muslims. I hold to that. But I have to wonder: Even if the number of actual jihadists and those in preparation is small, how many are giving some sort of support, financial or otherwise? How many silently approve of what is happening? How many remain silent when terrorists are in their midst ... How many live peacefully among us but hope for the day when our countries will become part of the great caliphate living under sharia law? How many Muslim leaders in the West are trying to bring about the same results as the killers but by using peaceful means, working within the legal system, convincing people that Islam poses no threat, and that the acts of terror do not represent Islam? How many believe in 'honour killings' if a daughter or wife becomes too Westernised or independent? How many are subjecting their daughters to FGM?..."

Muslims Praise and 'Like' the London Bridge Attack on Social Media  (04 June 2017)
"They need to stop calling them Jihadist. Jihadists is a term being misused by the media to refer to some rare, isolated group of rogue terrorists who have invented a new religion. They have have invented nothing. There is only one version of Islam and they follow it to the letter. Jihad means the same thing to every Muslim around the world, all 1.5 billion of them..."

Those people need to be - as many as possible - got rid of, and that should be done either by deportation, by detention for those we can't charge and imprison through the normal process, and also by excluding those who want to come back after having carried out mass murder, rape, and torture with Islamic State, and we've got at least 400 of those that we know about back in the UK..."

Maybe. Luckily, however, for many social media users, they won't even have to change their flag filter on their profile picture, as the most recent attack in the UK, Manchester, was only just a week and a half ago ... And get ready for it, because you will be hearing in the media, that what is worse than the ... the many murdered in the name of Allah for the sake of Islam, is the fact that 'Islamophobes' actually expected these attacks to happen, as their 'hate-filled' predictions expect the one after this and the one after that..."

And let's not forget, she was the Home Secretary, she was the person in charge of our Homeland Security for six years starting in 2010, and when she says 'we've made significant progress over the last few years', I think that's wrong; I think what we need to do today is to recognise we have not stopped radicalisation taking place - in our schools, our prisons, and our mosques..."

We continued walking but I couldn't get this thing out of the back of my head that I was just paying extra attention when I was in crowds - I had an extra eye on the road near me ... What more proof can liberals possibly need that we have a problem ... Ask yourselves this, liberals, is virtue-signalling your 'tolerance' really more valuable than the lives of those who cannot afford your expensive ... security ... Hashtags are not going to stop those blind with hatred for the West. The only thing that will stop this is if we put an end to the government-mandated mixing of incompatible civilisations and the importation of value systems that are hostile to ours. That is the only solution, whether you ... find it 'bigoted' or not. If you want people to stop dying in the streets, you have to do something other than change your profile picture. And, liberals, the longer you keep quiet and sit and watch the maimed bodies of your fellow men and women being carried away, the more you make yourself complicit in the agenda of those who seek to tear our culture apart from the inside ... And don't tell me I 'let hate win' because I am angry with the senseless slaughter of innocent people. 'Hate won' on the streets of London today when we did nothing to stop it."

  • The perpetrators were known to the security forces;
  • The killers recently returned from Syria/Libya/Afghanistan;
  • These people no more represent Islam than the killer of Jo Cox represented Christianity;

  • Scenes of Muslims placing flowers;

The Curse of Cain

"After Cain killed his brother, the Lord told him, ... 'Cursed shall you be from the earth', ... and so it has been. The earth under their feet may be cursed, it yields nothing but sand and thistles, ... They become worshippers of death dreaming of the green verdant fields of paradise which they can reach only if they kill enough men, women and children. Leaving devastation behind them, dead lands, lost cultures, widows and orphans, they claw their way up to heaven on a ladder of bones. Everything around them dies until the only green is on their flags. They are cursed from the earth and they curse the earth. Where they go, the world dies. ... Cain sows fields of corpses of the innocent for the Lord and he still does not understand why his sacrifice is not accepted and why the earth he dwells on is cursed. ...  From Iraq to Iran, from Kuwait to Saudi Arabia, from Nigeria to Somalia, from Pakistan to Indonesia, he holds up human heads and cries 'Allahu Akbar'. ... There is no room for Cain anywhere. Where he remains there will be death and suffering. He will kill because it is all he can do. He has nothing else to offer the world, his own kind, or the Creator.. ... He kills from one end of the world to the next and it is never his fault. Each time, each Abel did it. ... His code is cruelty and his holy book is written in blood on the flayed skins of his murdered victims. ... The cries of peoples long vanished from the earth warn us that we will either drive out Cain or his curse will fill our lands with blood and dust and all that we love and all that we have worked for will die at his cursed touch."


The Burden Which Habakkuk the Prophet Saw

The righteous cry out for God's punishment of the injustice in their lands:
O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!
Why dost thou show me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.
Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.

The LORD God answers:
Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs.
They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves:
And their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.
They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.
And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it.
Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.

The dismay of the righteous at God's answer:   
Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die.
O LORD, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity:
Wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?
They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad.
Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.
Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

The LORD God's reassurance to the righteous:
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

[Habakkuk 1:1-2:4]


Please Pray For All Those Persecuted By Islam:

There are many, many others who desperately need us to pray for them...

"Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them;
and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body"
(Hebrews 13:3)
