Revenge attack in London?

Quote:
Several people were hurt after a van slammed into a crowd -- including worshippers leaving a mosque -- on a road in north London around midnight Sunday night, witnesses said, as police added that one person was arrested.

Witnesses told Sky News that the driver, described as a white man, appeared to hit the crowd "deliberately." The crash immediately raised concerns of another terrorist attack in London; however, police did not reveal the possible cause.

Witnesses also told Sky News some 10 people were hurt, but police and medical officials would not confirm that.

"I could see at least two people on the floor, not moving," witness Cynthia Vanzella, who said the nearby crash woke her up, told Sky News. "There were people sitting on the floor with their head in their hands."

The neighborhood has two mosques, and several hundred worshippers would have been in the area after attending prayers as part of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

17 year old Muslim girl killed after leaving Virginia mosque...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/local/fairfax-loudoun-police-searching-fo...

Darwin Martínez Torres 22 has been charged in teens death.


I hope this isn't the direction things are going, but it's starting to seem like revenge or vigilante justice might be and attractive route to go for people that are either tired of their government siding with and catering to Islamists or are tired of living in fear in their own country...
If we stoop to their level we are no different than they are, but governments need to be doing a better job of protecting their people from the threat of Islamists extremism and moderate muslims need to do a better job of condemning extremists instead of telling pollsters that they agree with extremists sentiments but wouldn't do what they do... these things are going to drive some to take things into their own hands and shit is going to get real ugly.

You overestimate her. She's capable of taking your response as an endorsement and then we'll have to endure more of the same.

There's no practical way to protect society against nut-jobs. You don't know that they are nut-jobs before they act and once they do, it's too late to do anything to prevent it. You could put everyone under surveillance like in a big brother type of society but the cure would be far worse than the disease.

What else?

She excuses the actions of extremists while at  the same time deploring that the moderate Muslims don't do a better job condemning the actions of extremists.

Do and say, as I say you should, not as I say or do myself.

With a number of terrorists, they have some idea. The problem is these pesky things called "rights".

Let's start with "....tired of living in fear in their own country ".


The people attacked and murdered in London a short time ago were living in their own country and presumably they are now living in fear.

The assumption in Josie's post is, crudely,  white British Christian people (it's "their own" country)  are living in fear and so understandably lash out at someone.

This doesn't apply to the Muslims because they don't really belong, like any other pesky group.
