Another attack has occurred on British soil and members of the Muslim community are calling for calm in its wake. However, a glaring difference in this attack sets it far apart from the attacks in recent memory. All are connected to the London Bridge district of the capital city, but in this most recent attack, the perpetrator is a White non-Muslim.
As shocking as this attack is, it is extremely apparent that media outlets are even more shocked at the fact that the attacker himself is white. Darren Osborne of Cardiff is the father of four and lives in a neighborhood where Muslim neighbors are apparently abundan unless CNN specifically hunted down Muslim neighbors to get a reaction from them regarding Osborne.
Police said they were searching a residence in Cardiff in connection with the attack. That address is in Pentwyn, where Osborne is listed as living, the Press Association reported.
The suspect was not “on the security services'” radar, Home Office Minister of Security Ben Wallace said.
Saleem Naema, a 50-year-old taxi driver, and his young son said the man pictured was their neighbor.
“I know him. I've lived here for five years. He was already living here when I moved in,” Naema said, according to the Press Association.
“If I ever needed anything he would come. I just can't believe that he did that. I am a Muslim,” Naema added.
Khadijeh Sherizi, who was also Osborne's neighbor, said: “It is definitely him.”
“I saw him on the news and I thought ‘Oh my God, that is my neighbor,' ” Sherizi told the Press Association. Sherizi said Osborne “has been so normal.”
“He was in his kitchen yesterday afternoon singing with his kids,” Sherizi said.
“I just can't believe it,” she added.
From neighbors' accounts, Osborne was an affable guy. So, how did the radical change in his behavior take place. In other words, how was Osborne radicalized? Was he a “lone wolf” attacker, or just the first in a series of attackers who are about to wage their own personal war on Islam?
The reports of how he was just a normal guy sound very similar to those of the Manchester Arena suicide bomber who was said to be playing with kids the day before and had been a babysitter to his neighbor's kids. But as many Muslim leaders are now suggesting, the slate has now been wiped clean for Muslims because the new radicalization process of White terrorists has begun. Who is to blame? You guessed it. Right wingers. Here's Breitbart:
The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said in a statement: “We should make clear that if this attack is confirmed as a deliberate terrorist attack then this should be classed as an act of terrorism.
“The British Muslim community requires all decent people to stand with us against this evil violence.
“Rampant Islamaphobia [sic] has been on the rise for a number of years and those on the far right have perpetuated hatred against Muslims. They should be called out for their hatred.
“The days ahead will be difficult, but with unity and tolerance we will prevail. We will not allow these far right extremists to divide our diverse communities.
From 2006-2014, worldwide, terrorism (mostly from Islamist Fascist attacks and regimes) reached nearly 200,000 murders. That statistic was pulled up with near ease. Mind you, there were hundreds of others that broke down by year, by type, etc., or Islamist terror attacks. A completely different result occurs when you type in “white terror statistics.” It is apparently easier to find a level-headed Liberal than to locate a statistical chart that lists white terror versus Islamic terror. What you do find is a whole array of Leftist websites that are bent on “proving” that Islamic terrorism doesn't exist, but in fact Jewish terror and Right wing terror is much more prevalent in the world. Despite the fact that each and every time you hear about a beheading, a stabbing, a vehicle running down people, or a suicide bombing, you also hear the Leftist media with palms outward and wide eyes warning everyone not to “jump to conclusions,” we are supposed to believe that Jews and Right wingers are out there every day looking to mow down a bunch of innocents. Yes, that sounds so plausible.
Here's a good example of the bias. I typed in “white terrorism versus Islamic terrorism” on Bing and the following headlines appear:
- Study: White Extremists More Dangerous Than Islamists (Time)
- White Supremacists More Dangerous Than Foreign Terrorists (Huffington Post)
- Homegrown Extremists Tied to Deadlier Toll Than Jihadists in U.S. Since 9/11 (New York Times)
- Double standards: Islamic terrorism vs. white terrorism (Journalists for Human Rights)
- White supremacy: The new national security threat (Al Jazeera)
- Deadly American Extremism: More White Than Muslim (The Atlantic)
- Right-Wing Extremists Are a Bigger Threat to America Than ISIS (Newsweek) (*Our old friend Kurt Eichenwald)
Interestingly, not a one had of these had actual, hard statistics of the “vast numbers of White terrorists,” nor a body-count. There was no end to the opinions that Whites are eminently more dangerous, but more dangerous mostly (as noted in many of these articles) to the government! Yes, that was the amazing part of all this. They were less concerned with the threat to humanity and very much more concerned with the threat to the precious Leftist government.
There was also a bevy of Muslim websites perpetrating all the lies that we've become accustomed to seeing in the mainstream media and blaming Whites for pretty much every ill on the face of the planet.
Buzzfeed News on Twitter captured a short couple of videos that were interviewing Saeed Hashi and another unidentified man who were insinuating that British law enforcement authorities were purposefully taking an extra-long time to arrive at the scene, as well as orchestrating the dispatch of only one ambulance for 10 victims (which has been debunked based directly on the fact that all the victims were taken to the hospital and could not have all fit into one ambulance).

The mosque where the attack took place has also been under scrutiny by law enforcement in recent years for its inflammatory remarks by its imams. According to Breitbart, it has been host to two famous attendees.
The salafist Finsbury Park mosque has previously been in the news as having been the home of famed hate preacher Abu Hamza Al Masri, as well as having 9/11 attacker Zacarias Moussaoui and shoe bomber Richard Reid as attendees.
In recent years the mosque has changed its management team and has not been mentioned in connection with any recent terror plots.
So, it comes down to the question of whether or not this is the beginning of more violence from the vast dreaded White terror network or is merely a lone wolf attack by a man who was radicalized, because it wasn't really his fault. I suspect that the news will emerge, slowly of course, that the man who died at the scene was untouched by the van and that the nine others injured will have PTSD in association with this incident, to the point where, should any more Islamic terror plots unfold (and they will, because they always do) that the response by Jihadists will be warranted and understandable. Based on the Leftist hypocritical ideals set up on both sides, innocent people will continue to die at the hands of radical Muslim killers and will continue to be excused as frustration due to ‘white oppression'.
