Skip to comments.Woolwich attack: meat cleaver, knife and 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 incident happened in broad daylight, 400 metres from the perimeter of the Royal Artillery barracks, in Woolwich, south-east London, sparking a terrorist alert that saw the government crisis committee Cobra convene in emergency session. Hours later, David Cameron described what had occurred as "an absolutely sickening attack".
Witnesses said a man was hacked at by two assailants with weapons including a machete in horrific scenes, carrying strong echoes of attacks abroad, at about 2.20pm. It is understood that the victim was a soldier, although neither his identity nor profession was confirmed last night.
The two men remained on the scene, until armed police arrived up to 20 minutes later. They were shot and apprehended by armed officers and taken to two separate hospitals where they were being treated for their injuries under armed guard in the aftermath of the first al-Qaida inspired attack to claim a life on British soil since the 7 July bombings in London in 2005.

Might just be the thing to get a real holy war going - just kidding. The Brits don't have it in them anymore.
Don’t anybody jump to conclusions.
We do not know why this was done.
No doubt, Chris Mathews will shortly announce that a white guy probably did this.
I’ll bet the Brits will start fighting back before we do.
They’ve let millions and millions of enemy soldiers into their country. Those enemy soldiers have established families, and these families are raising tens of millions of new soldiers.
However this ends, it’s going to be very ugly.
Vlad Tepes wan not wholly a bad man.
Muslims will become the Jews of the 1930s, and it won’t matter if you are a friendly Muslim or a radical Muslim....all will be treated the same way. If I were Islamic....I might just go back and read how it only took months for a whole society in Germany to become anti-Jew and just look the other way.
Well I think it’s like here in the US, the muzzie arse kissers keep getting into office by fraudulent elections and nobody does squat about it. For example here, do you really think radical leftists outnumber sane people? Not a chance in hell, yet Obama “wins” two terms.
Expect more. The UK is dead....and we are next..
Since they don’t have the Tea Party, they will have to blame Ukip.
I stopped on a news channel when this story was playing - they had the video and it showed the terrorist with two bloody knives and his hands covered in blood and the body still in the street. He was claiming credit for the butcher. The newsette asked the question to someone on line if we could consider this an act of terrorism?
A terrorist is confessing on camera and the MSM will not even accept their own words.
As someone else posted, this is going to get real ugly before it is all over.
You're right. He's just a suspect at this point -- they might not even have the right guy!
Perhaps we should volunteer to let our IRS audit Ukip!
What will they fight back with?
I don't hear too many people criticizing the Crusades around here any more.
Well, history always does repeat. Sometimes it just takes a while.
Works for me.
Sticks, stones and illegal firearms if they have to.
These folks stood up to the Nazis before we did, the first to stand by our side after 911 and the last to leave Iraq. Just because they’ve been making a good show of “tolerance” doesn’t mean they’re not on slow-burn underneath.
...and that he can’t wait until Zero speaks on the matter so he can wet himself.
