Default British soldier hacked to death in suspected Islamist attack - 05-22-2013, 11:05 PM

British soldier hacked to death in suspected Islamist attack | Reuters

(Reuters) - A British soldier was hacked to death by two men shouting Islamic slogans in a south London street on Wednesday, in what the government said appeared to be a terrorist attack.

A dramatic clip filmed by an onlooker just minutes after the killing showed a man with hands covered in blood, brandishing a bloodied meat cleaver and a knife.

"We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day," the black man in his 20s or 30s, wearing a wool jacket and jeans and speaking with a local accent, shouted in the footage obtained by Britain's ITV news channel.

"This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."

The attack was the first apparent Islamist killing in London since suicide bombers struck transport in July 2005. The capital was shocked by the bizarre scene of a killer covered in gore, declaring his motive to onlookers.

Police shot the two suspects while trying to arrest them, and the wounded men were taken into custody. No information was immediately released about the identity of the suspects, but two sources familiar with the investigation told Reuters authorities were investigating a possible link to Nigeria.

"I apologize that women had to witness that, but in our lands our women have to see the same thing. You people will never be safe. Remove your government. They don't care about you," the videotaped man said before crossing the street and speaking casually to the other attacker.

Prime Minister David Cameron cut short a visit to France to return to London and chair an emergency national security meeting.

"The police are urgently seeking the full facts about this case but there are strong indications that it is a terrorist incident," Cameron said before cutting short talks with French President Francois Hollande to return home.

"We have had these sorts of attacks before in our country and we never buckle in the face of them," he said.

The attack happened on the edge of London's sprawling Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, a south London working class district which has long-standing historic links to the military.

In signs of a backlash after the attack, more than 100 angry supporters of the English Defense League, a far-right street protest group, took to the streets, some wearing balaclavas and carrying England's red and white flag. They were contained by riot police.

Separately, two men were arrested in connection with separate attacks on mosques outside London. No one was hurt.

HELP FOR HEROS

The authorities did not immediately confirm the identity of the slain man, but a source told Reuters the man may have been a member of the military. The British government normally withholds the identities of slain servicemembers until their families are informed.

The victim was wearing a T-shirt saying "Help for Heroes", the name of a charity formed to help wounded British veterans. Britain has had troops deployed in Afghanistan since 2001 and had troops in Iraq from 2003-2009.

Before he was stabbed to death, the victim was knocked over by a blue car which then rammed into a lamppost. The attackers pounced on him in broad daylight in a busy residential street.

Witnesses said they shouted "God is greatest" in Arabic while stabbing the victim and trying to behead him.

"I am afraid it is overwhelmingly likely now to be a terrorist attack, the kind the city has seen before," London mayor Boris Johnson said. Police said in a statement late on Wednesday that the murder investigation was led by the Counter Terrorism Command, a specialist branch within the London force.

Fred Oyat, a 44-year-old local resident, said he witnessed the attack on the soldier from the window of his high-rise apartment overlooking the scene.

"The victim was white," he told Reuters. "I was in my house when four shots rung out. I went to the window I saw a man lying on the ground with a lot of blood."

London was last hit by a serious militant attack in July 2005, when four young Islamists set off suicide bombs on the public transport network, killing 52 people and wounding hundreds. A similar attempted attack 2 weeks later was thwarted.

British counter-terrorism chiefs have recently warned that radicalized individuals, so-called "lone wolves" who might have had no direct contact with al Qaeda, posed as great a risk as those who plotted attacks on the lines of the 2005 bombings.

The bombing attacks on the Boston Marathon last month, which U.S. authorities blame on two brothers, have raised the profile of the "lone wolf" threat in the West. A French-Algerian gunman killed three off-duty French soldiers and four Jewish civilians on a rampage in southern France last year.

Britain's involvement in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in the past decade has often stirred anger among British Muslims and occasionally made soldiers a target at home. British police have foiled at least two major plots in which Islamist suspects were accused of planning to kill off-duty troops.

Ahmed Jama, a 26-year-old Woolwich resident, laid flowers down at the scene as a sign of respect to the families involved.

"This has nothing to do with Islam, this has nothing to do with our religion. This has nothing to do with Allah," he said "It has nothing to do with Islam. It's heartbreaking, it's heartbreaking."


"Revenge is a dish best served cold".

Muslim scholars need to stand up against this and speak out, Muslims everywhere need to condemn this.

If Britain has not been involved in the US war on Islam across the world where millions have been killed then this would have never happened, its as simple as that.

Its a sad tragedy, an innocent man minding his own business run over and killed by crazed individuals which were motivated by other tragedies happening on the other side of the world. This war on terror BS is making the world a very insecure place

its just a cold blooded murder nothing to do with Islam.

bbc is doing its best to label it an islamic terror and what not.
they even said on bbc "the man looks like a typical muslim"
what is a typical muslim looks? these guys look like a bunch of typical jamaican christians.

the worst of it all is that the british police arent allowd to carry guns and they were at scene in about 20 minutes.

overall im still skeptical about this whole incident.

In Britain if you even blow your nose in the wrong way or too loud the police will be around straight away, i'm shocked it took them 20 mins for a public murder on a main road, usually 5minutes max and the place would be flooded with police.

“Indeed the message has to be, as Bishop Tim says, keep calm. This is an unspeakable crime done in the name of Islam but reflecting the fanatical belief of a minority. More and more of the Islamic Community are speaking out in defiance of these people - not just for public consumption but in their mosques and places of worship. Such condemnation only gets publicity when atrocities like this occur. I fear all too often journalists look for the drama and conflict of a story and ignore good things as not being newsworthy. The Leicester Mercury generally does a good job in this respect.

But the Bishiop is right. Within less than 2 hours the English Defence League were getting organised for street protests, followed by Griffin and his BNP, desperate not to be oudone in their so-called Englishness. Street fighting is what they want in the same way yesterday's killers waited and begged for publicity.

We can only pray for all concerned, the victims and the fearful, and for wise judgement in the weeks ahead.”

is Britain even involved with Nigeria?? I think these guys had issues with him being white or something and just used Islam and Muslims as a scapegoat.

Hot bed of Muslim extremism? that's what the news will have you believe to keep you shivering in your pants, I would have thought you were smarter than that.
