Today, a group of Muslims leaving the mosque from taraweeh prayers on this holy and beautiful month of Ramadan were hit by a vehicle by a white TERRORIST. He isn’t mentally ill, he chose to run into innocent people but the media will never let you know. Pray for the Muslim families and the tragedies of minorities that become silenced by the media. Praying for these families

Edit: the media now is covering it, the British media is doing a much better job this time around at clarifying it’s an act of terrorism. The US news isn’t doing that well at highlighting all the points. Also understand that condemning him is the first step in a long battle to retain justice for those Muslims that were injured and the 1 that was killed.

If you’re using the terrorist attacks in London to try and push your political ideas or islamophobia, fuck right off.

No, we do not need guns in the UK. The availability of guns wouldn’t have helped the situation, but made it 100 times worse. Those terrorists attacked people with knives. Imagine the absolute fucking carnage if they’d been able to shoot.

No, the policy of ‘keep calm and carry on’ does not demonstrate our weakness. It’s the ultimate act of defiance against terrorism, which by it’s very definition attempts to disrupt our lives and make us too afraid to continue. I agree that action must be taken, but our refusal to submit to fear is one of the things I am proudest of about our country, and in all honesty, what else is there to do? Action is being taken against terrorism - MI5 stop dozens of terrorist plots each year. But if we can’t eradicate the cause of this hatred and violence, terrorism will never end. We can’t catch every terrorist. Someone will always slip through the cracks.

No, Muslims are not the problem. Muslims are not terrorists. Terrorists are extremists, whose actions have nothing to do with the faith that they falsely swear allegiance to, for Islam is a religion of peace, and Islamic extremism is nothing but a perversion of that. Having seen Trump’s tweet about his ‘Muslim ban’, I have never been more furious. That ban is not an anti terrorism measure, but a policy of racism and islamophobia, and I speak for the majority of Britain when I say that we want nothing to do with it.

Now is not the time to argue, to profess ignorant political ideas or to perpetuate racism. People have died. Have some fucking sympathy. Let us grieve.

TERRORIST ATTACK LONDON RECAP

[Check OP for updated post before reblogging]

NEW UPDATES (5th July):

  • One of the three men had been featured in a documentary on radical Muslims
  • One of them tried to brainwash local children to convert to Islam
  • Locals reported him to police after he had spoken to their children and offered them treats and gifts, police IGNORED complaints
  • SEVEN people killed, three terrorists shot dead
  • 48 people hospitalized with injuries
  • Already TWELVE suspects arrested
  • Two incidents; London bridge and nearby Borough market
  • Van drove into pedestrians, men exited vehicle to stab people
  • Suspects wore bomb vests, allegedly fake
  • BBC witness: “Shouting ‘This is for Allah’”

I found this video on twitter, speaking nothing but the truth. They won’t show you this on mainstream news outlets, they constantly try to take away the voices of marginalized communities, putting the government before the people. I strongly suggest watching this and sharing far and wide, this is the real story. No more bullshit cover ups and political agendas, just listen to the people directly affected. It’s their voice that matters. They deserve answers and JUSTICE.
