    Butt rented a white Renault van in the evening instead, using a recently activated mobile phone. ... Met Police confirmed to CNN that Butt was out on bail at the time of the attacks, having been arrested in a low-level fraud offense in October 2016. He wasn’t charged and was about to be released from bail because of insufficient evidence, the police said. Two British counter-terrorism sources told CNN that the arrest was part of a drive by British police and the MI5 intelligence agency to take known Islamist extremists “off the streets” by going after them for crimes unrelated...

    Saudi Arabia’s national football team have been criticised for failing to observe a minute’s silence held before Thursday’s match against Australia in Adelaide. The [Australian] Socceroos lined up in the centre of the pitch before the World Cup qualifier and held the brief silence as a tribute to the two Australians killed in the terrorist attack in London at the weekend. As they did so, the Saudi Arabia team continued jogging, passing the ball between each other and taking their positions on the field.

    As stunned Conservatives struggled to explain their election losses in the United Kingdom on Friday morning, one factor emerged as decisive: namely, the high turnout of young voters. The BBC reported anecdotal evidence — not yet backed by formal proof, though widely believed — that a surge in young voters propelled Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and his party to historic gains, while holding Prime Minister Theresa May’s party below a majority. What could have propelled young people to support an aging white male politician, whose political views are a throwback to the stodgy, pre-Tony Blair days of the British left?

    The US ambassador to Britain, Lewis Lukens, directly contradicted President Trump and threw his support behind London Mayor Sadiq Khan in a series of tweets on Sunday. The top diplomat in London praised Sadiq Khan, the city's mayor, after criticism from his boss, President Donald Trump, over the deadly attacks from the night before. 'I commend the strong leadership of the @MayorofLondon as he leads the city forward after this heinous attack,' Lukens said in a post, quoted on the US embassy's Twitter account. Lukens, 53, also praised the 'extraordinary' response from Londoners and emergency services.

    One of the London Bridge suspected attackers appeared in a jihadi documentary on Channel 4 and had previously “tried to go to Syria”, it has emerged. He appeared in a television documentary last year about British extremists called The Jihadis Next Door, and was filmed at events attended by two notorious Islamic preachers. As part of a year-long undercover documentary that aired last January, he was filmed attending one event alongside Mohammed Shamsuddin, who has warned that “Sharia is coming to the UK” and that the black flag of Islam will fly over Downing Street. The London Bridge suspected terrorist...

    LONDON, June 5 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump accused London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Monday of making a "pathetic excuse" over one of his comments following the attack that killed seven people in London on Saturday night. Khan had said on Sunday morning that people would see an increased police presence on the streets of the capital and should not be alarmed by that. "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his 'no reason to be alarmed' statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!," Trump said in a Tweet. MSM referred to...

    At about 10pm British Summer Time on Saturday night, the London Bridge area was the scene of a series of vehicle attacks and stabbings. So my scheduled conversational topic with Judge Jeanine on Fox News was replaced by yet another discussion about terrorism. We'll link to any video that gets posted. I'll be back on Fox with Abby, Pete and Clayton tomorrow morning, Sunday, live at 8am Eastern/5am Pacific. As I write, six members of the public are dead, and three attackers. I'm wary of weighing in as the situation is unfolding, but, though the details are always different, in...

    The mandatory media blindness toward Islam as a motive for terror attacks would be comic, if the propaganda were not so effective in a world full of low information voters. There is only one major religion in the world today whose adherents, by the hundreds of millions, believe that violence against believers of other religions or no religion, can legitimately be attacked. And there is only one religion that is actively killing nonbelievers on a large scale, globally. Everyone paying attention knows this. It requires considerable mental gymnastics to know the background and yet be baffled by the motives. Even...
  • London, ‘reeling’? The city that weathered Nazi bombs pushes back against fear.

    The first reports of “an incident” in London emerged Saturday evening. Within hours, cable news channels were saturated with the all-too-familiar loop of panicked faces, desperate crowds scurrying for safety and scowling, heavily armed police. On Sunday morning, the New York Times said the latest terrorist attack in London had targeted a nation “still reeling” from a suicide bombing in Manchester last month. On Sunday, some Londoners started pushing back against the notion that their city — if not their country — was trembling in fear. They had a simple message: “London is not reeling.” This twisted attempt to...

    MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts theorized on Sunday that President Trump is trying to provoke a terrorist attack on U.S. soil in order to “prove himself right” about Islamic terrorism. Roberts floated the theory during two separate interviews, one with Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed and another with former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean. Roberts pointed to Trump’s tweets early Sunday in the wake of a terrorist attack that left at least seven dead in London. Trump wrote that “we must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people.” He also criticized London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan,...

    Armed officers responding to the London Bridge terror attack fired an "unprecedented" number of rounds at the three attackers because they were wearing what appeared to be suicide belts, police said. Britain's most senior counter-terrorism officer, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, said eight officers fired 50 shots at three attackers, to ensure they were neutralized. London: Resilience and fear The suicide belts were later discovered to be fake, suggesting that the attackers deliberately used the belts to ensure they would be killed. Rowley said he was "not surprised" at the response. Seven people died and 48 were injured when three men...

A couple of interesting points that people need to consider until the year 1920, Steven touched upon, the gun laws of this country made Texas look effeminate. There was complete freedom in this country to own and buy guns to such an extent that the unarmed police at one major incident in London where they had to deal with a foreign anarchist gang in 1909 borrowed guns from passers by to shoot them..... (at 2:43)...At one point in our history citizens were actually required to...
