Video: London Attack: Jihadist Claims Filmed On Mobile

A man suspected of staging a terrorist attack that left a British soldier dead near a military barracks in London, was caught on camera clutching a meat cleaver and knife in hands apparently covered in the blood of his victim, as he justified the violence as part of a jihadist-inspired fight against the west, the Guardian reports.

We publish below the BBC report in full;

A man killed in a suspected terrorist attack in south-east London was a member of the armed forces, senior Whitehall sources have confirmed.

Two men spent the night under arrest in hospital as counter-terrorism police investigate the killing in Woolwich.

One man – his hands covered in blood- was filmed by a passer-by, saying he carried out the attack because British soldiers kill Muslims every day.

The PM is to chair a Cobra emergency response committee later.

David Cameron flew back from France yesterday to lead the government response. The meeting will be attended by politicians, the UK’s most senior police officer and the new head of MI5.

Meanwhile, security has been increased at barracks across London.

The two suspects were shot and wounded by police after the attack – which took place in John Wilson Street, the A205, at 14:20 BST.

One is in a serious condition while the other is also being treated for injuries.

Eyewitnesses say the victim was hacked to death by two men shouting Islamist slogans.

The men made no attempt to flee and encouraged people to take pictures of them and their victim.

One of the men was filmed wielding a bloodied meat cleaver and making political statements.

“I apologise that women have had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same,” he said.

“You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you.”

The other was pictured holding a knife and speaking to a woman at the scene.

The Daily Telegraph says it has spoken to the woman.

According to the paper, Cub Scout leader Ingrid Loyau-Kennett asked him: “Would you like to give me what you have in your hands?”

She added: “I did not want to say weapons but I thought it was better having them aimed on one person like me rather than everybody there – children were starting to leave school as well.”

A vehicle believed to be involved in the incident has been towed away from the scene – it is thought the victim may have been hit by the car before he was attacked.

The Muslim Council of Britain said the murder was “a truly barbaric act that has no basis in Islam and we condemn this unreservedly”.

Meanwhile, a man was arrested on suspicion of attempted arson and possession of an offensive weapon at a mosque in Braintree, Essex, on Wednesday night.

At a press conference with French President Francois Hollande in Paris, Mr Cameron said Britain would “never buckle” in the face of terror attacks.

“People across Britain, people in every community, I believe, will utterly condemn this attack,” said Mr Cameron, who was previously planning to stay in Paris on Wednesday night.

Met Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe, MI5 director general Andrew Parker, Home Secretary Theresa May, Defence Secretary Philip Hammond and Mayor of London Boris Johnson are among those expected to attend Thursday morning’s Cobra meeting.

Meanwhile, armed forces personnel based in London and elsewhere have been told to be more vigilant.

That is on top of the extra precautions now being taken at London’s 10 or so main barracks.

BBC defence correspondent Caroline Wyatt said that, since British forces intervened in Iraq and Afghanistan, they and their families have been well aware they might be targets at home.

At least two plots by Islamic extremists to kill soldiers in the UK have been foiled in recent years.

      This attack is absolutely horrific.

      However, it would hardly satisfy standards of bloody carnage “Talented Mr. VP” & LTTE used to terrify Sri Lankans with for 30 long years.

      British MPs and other agents who are running errands for BTF (British Ealam Forum) should pause now for a moment.

      And have a look at many LTTE sponsored “Machete massacres” in Sri Lanka.

      PS: Membership of BTF used to silently support LTTE horrendous “Machete massacres” with heart and soul. Before turning into “Human Rights” defenders almost overnight, on 18th May 2009.

        “Membership of BTF used to silently support LTTE”

        I agree that they need to distance themselves from the LTTE as well as the SL govt. They should know how Prabhakaran facilitated the election of Mahinda and the assasination of Sonia’s husband thus causing the current problems for NE Tamils.

        “British MPs and other agents who are running errands for BTF”

        The Brits have a right to take exception to the antics of the SL govt. They correctly banned the LTTE in UK due to their terrorism and killing of politicians so likewise in the interests of balance, they should initiate similar action against the SL govt for their subversion of democracy, attacks on journalists and restriction of media freedom

          Ramanan, British banned LTTE all right but came running with their mates to rescue the killers when they were about to be decimated.

          British never learn their lesson. Otherwise, would Cameron says, “Murder of soldier in Woolwich was a ‘betrayal of Islam'” He also says, “There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act….” Nothing in Islam that justifies this, eh?

          Doesn’t Cameron knows that Koran 2:190 says, “Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed, Allah does not like transgressors”. He should know this verse is a foundation for defensive jihad. List to that recordings; the killer himself said, he believed that the soldier was fighting Muslims in Islamic lands – Iraq and Afghanistan. So the soldier was fighting Muslims, and the killer thought that he was not “transgressing” by fighting “in the way of Allah those who fight you” i.e. the Muslims.

          If Cameron doesn’t get their enemy right even at this hour, how can we in Sri Lanka expect him to know our enemy (terrorist) LTTE. Lets see how democracy work in Britain when more such attacks takes place as numbers of Muslim increase in Europe.

            We must also educate Cameron about violence in Buddhist texts. Buddhism preaches violence and practices violence. They may be in UK hiding behind the name of “truth seeker”. We should also educate Camaron, it was Buddhist teaching which led to the genocice of Tamils. Killing in the name of Buddhism is justified in Buddhist texts.

              Dodo,
              You have no idea of Buddha Dhamma. You are describing Buddhism worse than that blind man who tried to describe the elephant by its tail, and legs and trunk and etc. Only the stupid understand Buddhism that way.

              I know, you are scared of the omnipotent, omnipresence, and omniscience power of Allah. I know that you think Allah is keeping an eye on you every moment. I know that you think he is listening to you on what you say very minute. So I know you have to read the Koran like a parrot and trust it more than your life and blindly follow its instructions to the letter. You have no guts to question it even on stupidest remarks. So, no God fearing man can think freely.

              Only those can argue freely with self can think of the four noble truth that Buddha preached and eightfold path to overcome it.

              You continue to read Surat Al-Tur 52:17-20, 22 and think of the fruit and meat and women that recline with ease on thrones arranged in ranks in your Allah’s heaven. But don’t you follow that killer in Woolwich to get there.

              Leela/truth seeker, not me it is you who has no idea of Buddhism! When the truth comes out it is hurting you. All these days you were posing as a hero here. I exposed the real Buddhism which you did not know or hiding it. I chalange you that I can give here some of the sutras from your Holy text which preaches Violence. I also challenge you that your Buddhist are practicing violence under the guidance of your Buddhist monks from Ashoka to now. I repeat, that Buddhism is a copied Philosophy from Jainism and Hinduism. Buddhism is disappearing from the world because, it could not cope with the development of Human knowledge. In the Buddhist countries, ike South Korea and Taiwan Buddhists are converting to other religions. In North Korea and vietnam they are becoming atheist.

              In your philosophy you will re-born as a dog, pig, donkey… Again man, donkey, horse, snake….. again VP or KARUNA, monkey… There is no end for your suffering.

              You and your four noble truth! It is nothing but killing, child abuse by monks, rape and Kasippu! It is the reality in your community now. These are the four noble truth that your fellows are practicing.

              Your decency is exposed in your various fake names under which you make your comments.

            Dear Leelo,

            The gist of your argument is this- Muslims are violent because Al Qur’an say so; Buddhists are non- violent because adherents follow the 5 fold path.

            Here’s the conundrum; how was it possible for Buddhists to prolong an ethnic conflict for 65 years without finding an equitable solution if what you are saying is true.

            The point I want to make is that religions and in the case of Buddhism, a philosophy, must not be blamed for the follies of man.

            Similarly, the violence that you attribute to Muslims is troubled parts of the world does not apply to Sri Lankan Muslims

            We don’t indulge in violence even among ourselves.

            So stop crying wolf, no one heeds your calls

              NABIL:

              The most important fact is that Buddhists have never killed any one in the name of the buddhism.

              It is not the same with ISLAM.

              Prophet MOHOMAD had killed people because they were not listening to his preachings. QURAN says kills unfaithful.

              Muslims have used violence to convert and muslims use oppression to keep faithfuls in the faith.

          “They are up coming community in every field, Not only in uk all over the world”

          The hardcore sinhala nationalists know in their hearts that Tamils are a very ambitious community who push their children hard to do well in academics. These same Tamil parents do extra shifts just to give tuition to their children so that they may enter university. As i said before, the western govts are happy to let their asian minority dominate many of the clerical professions especially medicine therefore why the hell would Tamils launch attacks on the west when there is no barrier to them achieving their career goals whilst living in liberal, free society?

          “They are hard working community”

          This is because they are not a majority in any country so they realise if they want something then they most likely have to work for it as opposed to getting a free hand-out from their national government.

            Ramanan,
            You say “They are hard working community.” Read this to find out what hard work they do:

            “A 50-year-old man from Croydon has been charged with smuggling Sri Lankan immigrants into the UK. Chubramaniam Vignarajah of Aurelia Road, was one of 18 people arrested in a series of international raids by immigration and police, which included addresses in London, Luton and Essex on Wednesday.”

            I am sure you do not want me to copy and paste of Tamils that were send to jail on credit card scams and drug peddling etc. I never knew you guys are getting tuition on these.

              “You say “They are hard working community.” Read this to find out what hard work they do:”

              Thank you ‘truth seeker’ for your hilarious attempt to portray the UK Tamil community as nothing but a bunch of criminals using 1 news report as befits your status as a Rajapaksa supporter and thus devoid of any meaningful intelligence.

              Those of us lucky to possess our full complement of chromosomes will instead prefer to acknowledge the comments of important people like David Cameron when he said “I would also like to acknowledge the significant contribution the Tamil diaspora makes to many aspects of British society. That contribution is built upon enterprise, community, family and social responsibility – values the Conservative Party also holds dear”.

              Or maybe the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson when he said: “I would like to extend my warmest wishes to the British Tamil community on this day of celebrating Chithirai Tiru-naal. This important occasion provides us with the opportunity to renew the ties that bring us all together in building a prosperous community based on the bonds of family and social responsibility. It is these strong values that enable the tens of thousands of British Tamils who have made London their home to make such a significant contribution to the city and its communities. Puthandu Vazthukal to you and your families on this special day”

              Forgive us then ‘truth seeker’ if we take note of their opinions much more than anonymous crackpots like yourself.

              “I am sure you do not want me to copy and paste of Tamils that were send to jail on credit card scams and drug peddling etc.”

              Please do ‘truth seeker’ and see if the total number approaches the community number of 150000+ thus verifying your mindless arguments. As I was painfully trying to explain to some of your other brain-dead sinhala nationalist colleagues, one of the reasons for Tamil discontent in SL was the attempt made to cut the number of Tamils from northern areas from occupying university places and white collar jobs therefore if many of these same Tamils find themselves in western countries with far superior educational opportunities, then a rational sane person would realise that these same Tamils will eagerly take advantage of such opportunities to advance in society. This is why you get high profile western politicians like Cameron and Johnson making note of Tamil enterprise and community service. Let us also not forget how Queen Elizabeth’s first visit to a Hindu place of worship in England was to a SL Tamil Hindu temple. This same Queen has rightly decided to pull a sickie instead of mingling with Mahinda, Gota et al later this year

      Why should they rise up in rebellion against the Brits when they have a functioning democracy and have a govt not engaging in race-baiting like your master Mahinda and the Bodu Sena? These Brits are comfortable letting asians dominate different professions like medicine and have no need to introduce racial quotas for their own white people to go to university at the expense of others.

      “one day QEEN and King in UK will get blame for war crime from LTTE tamils unless you give peace of land from UK”

      Please provide some evidence that the UK authorities are attacking Tamil newspapers, arresting Tamils under prevention of terrorism act or are promoting pro-govt paramiliataries like your masters Mahinda and Gota are doing with the EPDP and TMVP

        You are the only biggest race in the world don’t have country(land) therefore you try to get it in some other country, you tried in SL and failed, therefore you will start in UK, you have trained by the LLTE for that , so anyone can guess the future for UK with you guys

I know you are a fan of the Bodu Sena therefore enjoy demonizing muslims and giving them generalised characteristics, but the average Brit is smarter than the average sinhala nationalist therefore does not believe these lies

          “You guys were wasted billions of pounds of UK tax payers money “

          Kris we thank you for showing concern for the UK taxpayer at these wasted funds but I wish to assure you that this figure is minimal compared to the industrial-scale corruption being performed by your master Mahinda and his sons, brothers, cousins and other relatives in Sri Lanka at the moment

          “therefore you will start in UK, you have trained by the LLTE for that , so anyone can guess the future for UK with you guys”

          Again Kris please can I ask why would the Tamils rebel when they are not being subject to anti-tamil riots, being denied entry to university of have UK political leaders not engaging in ethnic nationalism as your sinhala leaders were and have been doing for many a year. The UK police and army do not have allegiance to Cameron and his brothers but to the people thus they will not descend into farce and allow sitting MPs like Duminda Silva to do multiple homicide whilst occupying public office like your enlightened govt led by Mahinda

    a live telecast of innocence of Muslims. Not so many comments for this news by Muslims like they do for BBS related news. All Sri Lankan Muslims silently celebrate this attack. CT published this with sorrow because the victims is a British. I haven’t seen any news about Christians and Hindus in Pakistan, Chittagong Buddhists, Christians and Hindus who suffer from brutal attack than this and the number victims are also grater than this.

      Are you talking about yourself and the Sinhala Buddhist ?

      Still celebrating the deaths of the Tamils in May 2009 ?

      No Muslim protested when Osama Bin Laden was killed. No Muslim found fault with the US for killing OBL. You know why ? He was given a decent, Muslim burial. No photos were taken of the dead body and advertised. No victory celebrations. Even a terrorist, a mass murderer was respected in death.

      See the difference ?

      All boils down to decency, upbringing, culture, education, tolerance, respect for each other no matter what’s the background or the religion is.

        yes I m talking about myself and but not only Sinhala Buddhist but also Sinhala Christians and Tamils.

        //Still celebrating the deaths of the Tamils in May 2009 ?
        We aren’t celebrating the deaths of Tamils but we celebrate death of LTTE carders and it’s high ranked officers. Because even though some Tamils don’t like to admit Sri Lankan forces rescue innocent Tamils and Tamil children from being a child soldiers.

        //No Muslim protested when Osama Bin Laden was killed. No Muslim //found fault with the US for killing OBL. You know why ? He was //given a decent, Muslim burial. No photos were taken of the //dead body and advertised. No victory celebrations. Even a //terrorist, a mass murderer was respected in death.

        OBL was given a decent burial by dumping him into sea from Sky. And their were victory celebrations in US. You can search for this with the key words “Osama bin laden death celebration”. Amid all these allegations, Dr zakir naik try to release OBL from charges by fabricating 9 11 attack as US government internal activity.

        //See the difference ?
        Yeah I see the difference, it’s only Muslim criminals who try to justify their crimes with their religion. Biggest mistake that Muslims do

        //All boils down to decency, upbringing, culture, education, //tolerance, respect for each other no matter what’s the //background or the religion is.
        All these things are depend on the religions. Specially religions taught a human to how to think. That’s why Muslims scientist tell world was created by Allah even though that is not scientifically true.

        //Stand in front of a mirror and take a good look at yourself !
        You don’t want to tell this. I know who am I and my decisions are always correct, impartial and rational.

            Yes, I have so many Muslim friends they all like when something bad happen to Americans, British and French non Muslim people they all enjoy it. Specially 9 11, they talked about it with a proud. Some of they had FB profile pics, their faces were covered like AQ & Taliban militants at that time. Base on these things I can imagine most of the Muslims thoughts

            //This country will never see peace because of guys like you.
            World will never see peace because of Muslims

            //You can bash another religion, but cannot handle it when it is //reversed.

            I don’t care what a particular religions teach if it’s not harm to it’s infidels. I’ m ok with the fact that Muslims think world was created by Allah. I don’t want to harm Muslims too but I don’t like the way how Muslims treat infidels of Islam, specially Hindus and Buddhists, because Christians are protected by people of book of Islam. Therefore I criticize Islam.Since you don’t bash other religions read about pre-Islamic Arab and what happen to that Gods.

            Wow, what a perfect human being !!!
            Not perfect but I m almost perfect

      “doors to riff-raff who came there under the guise of refugees.”

      So are you suggesting the UK should ban all immigration from foreign nationals just in case a few nutters slip through the net? I take it you are one of these imbeciles who believes in collective punishment on a whole group of people due to the misdeeds of a few? Because that’s obviously going to solve the problem isn’t it as opposed to causing further anger and mistrust.

      “Today its the Muslims…who will it be tomorrow???”

      We know the Rajapaksa faithful are desperate for news about Tamils attacking their own western govts as this will allow them to make generalised remarks about Tamils being violent and thus justifying crimes against them as a legitimate democratic exercise. We must point out to these fools that Tamils (or any other race for that matter) only resort to violence as a reaction due to all other avenues being exhausted. Tamils will therefore never rebel against western govts because they are not facing any persecution from them, their western law courts do not get subverted by despotic politicians and the western police are actually tasked with protecting the people as opposed to the ruling family and their interests thus if a politician commits multiple homicide whist in office like Duminda Silva then they get ready for a criminal trial as opposed to happily remaining in office.

        These bleeding hearts cried crocodile tears and accepted these riff-raff to show their humanitarian side. Its only now that they’ve realized how much harm these misfits who make up the majority of refugees are disrupting their once peaceful life and regretting it. Only a moron like you would think otherwise.
        As for the 2nd part…well if the bloody cap fits then wear it! Tamils know that if they try their larks outside of SL they will be deported lock-stock-and-barrel…so they behave for the moment. Also they may lose out on the dole so whoa…be careful thambi!!

          “how much harm these misfits who make up the majority of refugees are disrupting their once peaceful life and regretting it”

          Nodrog you do realise that most of the muslims committing these attacks are 2nd generation persons born in UK or are UK-born converts. Therefore please can you explain why you choose to display your idiocy again and claim that they ‘make up the majority of refugees’. Do you understand the meaning of word ‘refugee’?

          “Only a moron like you would think otherwise.”

          Let us sit back and enjoy the irony of Nodrog calling others morons whilst he makes hilarious remarks about UK muslim terrorists being ‘refugees’

          “they try their larks outside of SL they will be deported lock-stock-and-barrel…so they behave for the moment”

          Nodrog as you are the fool who think muslim refugees are the ones committing terror attacks in UK, please can I educate you to a basic standard and let you know that most Tamils have been in the UK and western nations long enough to have acquired citizenship and permanent residency thus are not fearing being deported back to Rajapaksa family kingdom. We are more worried about your delusion President making visits to UK when he has not been invited by the UK govt thus having to undergo the embarassment of being banned from entering Oxford University campus.

          “Also they may lose out on the dole so whoa…be careful thambi!!”

          Nodrog as you are a top-class imbecile it is not surprising that you think Tamils are enjoying a life on the dole and that any major success they enjoy in western countries is due to credit fraud or some other illegal activity. We wish to assure you that any Tamil wishing to embark on a life of fraud will be quickly apprehended by the UK authorities as opposed to Sri Lanka where he would probably be recruited by Gotabhaya to make fake diplomatic passports and papers like the one he tried to pass of to Col Karuna before his trip to London

      “Need to offer our PTA to Brittain as well.”

      Indeed Cameron needs to use muslim terrorism to get more of his family members into govt with him. He should put all the asian muslims in camps ‘for their own protection’ whilst getting his brother to assassinate and kidnap journalists and civil society figures opposed to him. He should then go on a development drive and build a massive airport in his Oxford constituency (using high interest chinese loans) and name it after himself along with other vanity projects. This will allow Britain to become the miracle of europe like Sri Lanka is the miracle of asia.

      “kill border village peasants it was not terrorism then”

      As you are follower of Mahinda and thus sadly devoid of any meaningful intelligence please allow me to mount my own humanitarian mission to educate you to a basic standard. The LTTE is a banned terrorist organisation in Britain and no effort was made by UK, Canada or USA to rescue Prabha in his last moments. Please repeat that last sentence in your head until you memorise it thereby saving you from any further ridicule or humiliation.

      “Sri Lanka a creation by the Diaspora & the Northern church”.

      You need to go further and say that anti-tamil riots, standardisation, sinhala-only act and failed political pacts played absolutely no part in creating the environment for militancy and that these things either never happened or had no effect on Tamils. This is will mark the peak of your intellectual contribution on this thread, I promise

    This barbaric act has shocked and shamed Muslims throughout the world and has been condemned in the strongest terms.

    “The spokesman of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, in a statement in Jeddah this morning, strongly condemned reports of the killing of a British soldier in Woolwich, London by two individuals.

    Reiterating the OIC’s strong and unwavering position against all forms of terror including hatred, violence and intolerance based on religion and faith, the OIC spokesman said that the brutal and barbaric killing in Woolwich last night was a criminal and outrageous act by the individuals involved who clearly acted on their own, adding that that this criminal act should in no way be construed or connected to Islam as the Islamic faith preaches peace and rejects terror and killing of innocent people.

    The spokesman called on all for restraint and expressed confidence that the tradition of tolerance in a multi religious and multi ethnic society in Britain would not be allowed to be disturbed by this incident.”

    It is observed that the Islamic world is in a state of turmoil and daily killings, bombings are being carried out by various groups in Syria, Iraq and Pakistan. The solution to this problem has to be found by the Muslims and Islamic Govts themselves. All possible measures must be taken to root out religous hatred and extremism.

    One of the major problems appears to be the lack of central religous leadership for muslims throughout the world due to the diversity and numbers. Also the different policies of govts some of whom are funding and promoting this type of violence.

    It is time for the moderate Muslims to speak up against extremism and cooperate with the authorities to bring such people to book before they inflict damage on innocent people. Such people need to be taken into custody and sent for rehabilitation. The religous clergy of the Muslim community need to be more outspoken and take a strong stand against such forms of extremism.

    I think we in Sri Lanka have set an example in the way we responded to recent attacks on the community and even our clergy have been very specific and outspoken in their attempts to preserve the peace and rule of law. A statement from our Leaders, ACJU and Muslim Council expressing our horror and condemnation of this incident will go a long way in conveying this message to any would be jihadist or terrorist if they are present amongst us. Remaining silent is not a good option.

      I don’t approve any barberic act. But look what he says. Who created Al-Queda, Taliban, and other Muslim Extrimists. What a destruction Israel, USA and the West brought upon Palestine people, Iraq, Afganistan,Libya, Africa and rest of the world……all due to Power and Greed.

      Every day hundreds of people die in Iraq, Afganistan,Syria,Pakistan and in other Arab countries and Africa. Who created the Muslim Mujahadeen and Terrorists in the world. Who are the real terrorists, now have become cannibals in the Syria.

      This is pretty dangerous, bad and out of control.

      All happens when the right to life is robbed by the powerful and now the chickens are coming home to roost.

      Every human deserves equal dignity, respect,peace, love, true democracy, freedom and equal right irrespective Religion, Race or status.

      Excess Greed, Power, suppression and unjust leads to total breakdown in society.

      My deepest sympathy and prayers to the deceased soldier and his family and Gods guidence and enlightenment towards the murderer…….and other big time respectable murderers.

      Safa, Your Leaders, ACJU and Muslim Council and go against tenets in the Koran. Killer had clearly elaborated his following of the Koran in his boasting aftermath.

      Koran 2:191 “And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers” . “Kill them wherever you overtake them” even on, say, a street in Woolwich.

      I am sure you will find some defence ; let’s hear it, shall we.

      Death in any form is gory; whatever the method of execution, be it the electric chair, lethal injection, by hanging or by a firing squad.

      Accidents have happened in countries Lester likes to ape particularly in the US, where practitioners claim that these methods are humane. Examples of the electric chair malfunctioning and the lethal dose not being effective are on record.

      For the record according to Amnesty International, of the 40 countries employing capital punishment as a deterrent,there were 11 Muslim majority countries and 10 others comprising of 21 that carried out executions, and of these 11 countries only Saudi Arabia uses decapitation.

      Lester’s Islamic world is restricted to Saudi Arabia, which is now reviewing other methods of execution.

      Lester will of course ignore the extra-judicial killings in our own country for his purpose in life is to bash Muslims.

    THIS IS HORRIFIC , WHICH EVER QUARTER IT COMES FROM. WE MUSLIMS TOTALLY CONDEMN THIS BARBARIC ACT, AND PEOPLE WHO HIJACK ISLAM TO GAIN THEIR OWN ENDS. TWO PRESS RELEASES WHICH APPEARED IN UK ARE:

    …NEWS RELEASE…NEWS RELEASE…NEWS RELEASE… MUSLIM COUNCIL OF BRITAIN,UK

    22 May 2013
    Muslims Condemn Attack on Soldier AT Woolwich

    No cause justifies this murder
    A barbaric act that has no basis in Islam and we condemn this unreservedly
    Vast majority of British Muslimscknowledge armed forces for the work they do
    Calls for calm and unity in all communities

    The Muslim Council of Britain this evening spoke out, in the strongest possible terms, the news of a horrific murder that has taken place in Woolwich, London. Eye-witnesses suggest that the murderers made Islamic slogans during their heinous action and were thus motivated by their Islamic faith.

    This is a truly barbaric act that has no basis in Islam and we condemn this unreservedly. Our thoughts are with the victim and his family. We understand the victim is a serving member of the Armed Forces. Muslims have long served in this country’s Armed Forces, proudly and with honour. This attack on a member of the Armed Forces is dishonourable, and no cause justifies this murder.
    This action will no doubt heighten tensions on the streets of the United Kingdom. We call on all our communities, Muslim and non-Muslim, to come together in solidarity to ensure the forces of hatred do not prevail. It is important we allow our police authorities to do their job without speculation. We also urge the utmost vigilance and ask the police authorities to calm tensions.

    PRESS RELEASE BY IERA – IN LONDON

    Statement in Light of Woolwich Attack

    The Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) would like to issue a statement in the wake of the gruesome attack that took place on the streets of Woolwich yesterday, Wednesday 22nd May 2013.

    Islam does not condone nor encourage acts of criminality; this is abundantly clear in its teachings. iERA as an organisation will continue in its commitment to motivate and empower Muslims to articulate a positive and compassionate case for Islam through positive civic engagement and dialogue.

    iERA strongly believes that it is through fostering better understanding of our fellow citizens that will help in uniting our society in good and prevent further acts of violence on our streets.

    Islamic teachings provide a clear moral compass for individuals and communities to organise their lives in a harmonious and peaceful way. Therefore, we as iERA espouse these teachings and urge the Muslim community in Britain to continue to present Islam and to be compassionate and engaged citizens who benefit all communities.

    “You are the best of nations raised up for the benefit of mankind; you enjoin what is right and forbid the wrong and believe in God”.

    The Majestic Qur’an, The Family of ‘Imran, Verse 110

      What’s the point you “MUSLIMS TOTALLY CONDEMN THIS BARBARIC ACT,” when your read five times a day the Koran that degrades non-Muslims as wile animals and encourages or incite you Muslims to kill non-believers in more than 99 verses.

      Don’t talk rubbish and say, “Islam does not condone nor encourage acts of criminality.” Koran 2:191-193 – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

      Now do not accuse us for quoting out of context. Historical context of this passage is not defensive warfare. The verses urge offensive warfare. Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city. (which they later did) Taken as a whole, the context makes clear that violence is being authorized until “religion is for Allah” – ie. unbelievers desist in their unbelief.

      Now look at Koran 2:216, “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense.

        What is the point in you quoting Quran! Look this. Your Buddhist text advocate violence more then any other religion. Ashoka practices this first, after he became muslim. It is also practiced all over the world in all Buddhist countries. Why we go so far? Let us take our Mother Lanka, you all say a Buddhist country. In 1956, you put Tamils into burning fire with their children and killed them. In 1983 you repeated the same. In 2009 you genocide Tamils. All these were led by monks according to Buddha’s teaching which are available in number of Buddhist texts.

        Your Buddhist monks are setting fire to Muslims in Burma as thought by your Buddhist text. Your Buddhist brothers are killing Muslims in Thailand according to the Buddhist texts which advocate violence. But you are doing a reach about violence in Islam. Truth Seeker, put your house in order first.

    The killing was done by Muslims and the killers claimed the same. Boston bombing is the same. Three tried to blast the USA-Canada VIA train for the same reasons of Muslims.

    But the British must know “encouraging” terrorism will be backfired.

    Reagan-Thatchar axis promoted terror everywhere. Islamic fundamentalism was used to fight Russians in Afghanistan by the same Britain. LTTE terror idealogue Anton Balasingam was a Brit.

    Are the Brits telling “do the crime/terror in your country with our support and not in UK/USA”?

      But British and their friends think there are two types of terrorism. For them Tiger terrorism is justifiable and therefore it is a Good Terrorism. That’s why their foreign minister Miliband came running here with his French mate to save the Terras that set 384 human bombs in our trains, buses and public places to kill tens of thousands of ordinary people. I thought the Killer of the British soldier has made a point, the British ought to ponder.

        Behind all this is Buddhist terrorism. The killing of Tamils by putting them into fire with their little children and again in 1983 by Buddhist monks (thugs) is the reason behind this. You will kill, genocide as thought by your Holy texts and put the fault on others!

          Dodo is going through pipe dreams. I have quoted so many nasty verses in the Koran but Dodo cannot even come up with even one to prove his claim of institutionalized Buddhist terrorism. Or even he cannot give names of little children that were put into fire and places where it had happened. In any case, Eelam wars has nothing to do with Buddhism. 1983 and other riots were a part of Eelam wara.

          Don’t take my word Dodo: Read what Lord Russell remarks: “Of all religions of history, I prefer Buddhism, especially in its earliest forms because it has had the smallest element of persecution.” And what Aldous Huxley wrote ” Along of all the great world religions Buddhism made its way without persecution, censorship or inquisition. In all these respects its record is enormously superior to that of the Christianity …” Give us quotes like that if you can.

            All the desert religions(Christianity, Islam, Judaism) ask their followers to kill and terrorize others until others accept their criminal ways.

            Hindu/Buddhist religion never ask to kill any one or rob anyone. White Christians always think Muslims are acceptable for them over Hindus/Buddhists because Muslims still and publicly claim the Satanic Verses to kill non-Muslims.

            Muslims in Sri lanka and India supported British.

            In 1983 many Muslims joined Sinhala mobs in robbing Tamil shops!

              Only some Crazy Business Mafai who Misuse Religion to spread wrong messages and then use it to murder people and steal both Believers and non believers money and property.This is what that going around the world. Selling Religion.

              We saw it in 1983. Lord Buddha never Preached to Murder, but some Sri Lanka Buddhists happily killing them.Read the papers.

Killing details are now with UNHRC!

            You are trying to re write the history. There was no Elam war in 1956. You are just lying to escape. 1956 killings of Tamils by the so called non violent Buddhist are the main reason for Ealam war. War Ian’s killings are justified in Buddhism.

    “When western soldiers continuously kill Muslim civilians, that’s not “terrorism”,

    If these civilians are being deliberately targeted and killed then that is called a war crime. If you have evidence that UK soldiers are actively killing unarmed civilians then you should report it to the British govt or speak to the various free media outlets in the country. I assure you that these claims (if verifiable) will be taken seriously and be condemned by any rational person

    The latest news is that French soldier is stabbed in the throat in Paris. I think this is going to be a continuing story by the Islamic terrorists. Meanwhile two suspects were arrested from a Pakistani plave in UK. Time and again I would like to remind that it won’t be a surprise that these Islamic terrorists may even charter a Plane from one of the developing countries in Asia and jammed into European Airports inflicting heavy damages to lives & property. It is best to deny landing rights to such Airlines which depart from places where the checking system by Imigration and Customs became suspicious. I am sorry to make such comment because prevention is better than cure. After all terrorism is cancer and effective measures should be taken to wipe out.

    MAHELA:

    ” but Christianity never say anybody to kill unbelievers. Infact Christianity spread LOVE AMONG MANKIND. “

    Bible has so many different editions and in many languages.

    Some English editions use the words “KILL INFIDELS”. After all, It is the Vatican POPE the instigator of some OF THE NUMEROUS CRUSADE WARS.

      Jim Softy,

      I am a Christian and have herd about the Vatican POPE instigated Numerous Crusade wars. Similarly many Christians were also Murdered by various Roman Kings and during Automan empire for embracing Christianity.

      This is against Jesus Christ’s preaching. Jusus Christ also said about Anti Christ who Pretend to be Christ but a Devil. If you search internet on number 666, Anti Christ, Illumanati,Free Mason, Mafiosa,Alkaeda, Wahabis, Salafis etc, you will be able to read more about them.

      It is not the Religion that is the Problem, but the crooks who Hi-Jacked it. Lord Buddha never taught about Mahayana Buddhism or Therawada Buddhism or Tibetan Buddhism etc. Same with other religions. Who gave names to these One Messangers preachings is the question.

      Remember many use Religion to make money, to fight wars, to murder other people, to Run a country, to divide people, to suppress people, to get votes, to get Jobs, contracts and to enter Parliament.

      In Sri Lanka nobody could become a President or the Prime Minister unless he is a Sinhala Buddhist. Many occassions not even a Parliament member.

      Please do research on above . Good luck.
