UN Chief and Theresa May Strongly Condemn Terrorist, Time To Follow In Trumps Footsteps
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has strongly condemned last night’s terrorist attacks in London and expressed solidarity with the people and Government of the United Kingdom in the combat against terrorism and violent extremism. The deadly incidents that occurred was described as “unjustifiable violence”
According to media reports, seven people were killed and dozens more injured when a van sped across London Bridge last night, ramming numerous pedestrians. After the van came to a halt, the attackers reportedly stabbed several people in the capital’s Borough Market, a crowded weekend gathering spot. The three assailants were reportedly shot by the police.
This is the third deadly incident in the UK that authorities have attributed to terrorists in as many months, following a deadly attack near the Houses of Parliament in March, and nearly two weeks after a suicide bombing outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
“This is a struggle in many parts of the globe that compels the international community to join up efforts to bring to justice those who use such inhumane tactics while also protecting and promoting the fundamental values, rights and principles that terrorists so fervently seek to undermine,” the UN spokesperson’s statement concluded.
Theresa May said Britain must be tougher in stamping out Islamist extremism after attackers killed at least seven people by ramming a van into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbing revelers in nearby bars.
After the third militant attack in Britain in less than three months, May said Thursday’s national election would go ahead. But she proposed regulating cyberspace and said Britain had been far too tolerant of extremism.
“It is time to say enough is enough,” the Conservative leader said outside her Downing Street office.
“We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are,” May said, adding that Britain was under attack from a new breed of crude copycat militants.
May said the series of attacks were not connected in terms of planning and execution, but were inspired by what she called a “single, evil ideology of Islamist extremism” that represented a twisted version of Islam.
She said this ideology had to be confronted both abroad and at home, adding that the internet and big internet companies provided the space for such extremism to breed.
Facebook said it wanted to make its social media platform a “hostile environment” for terrorists. Twitter also said it was working to tackle the spread of militant propaganda. It’s time for Instagram ‘The Favourite’ to step up as well.
Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed their ties with Qatar on Monday, accusing it of supporting terrorism. Gulf Arab states and Egypt have already long resented Qatar’s support for Islamists, especially the Muslim Brotherhood which they regard as a dangerous political enemy. Because of these terrorists and ‘stereotyping’ it has become hard for any region to accept Muslims, as it should be.
London Mayor Mr Khan said: “Elections are a wonderful thing and that’s one of the things that these terrorists hate.
“One of the things that we can do to show we’re not going to be cowed is by voting on Thursday and making sure that we understand the importance of our democracy, our civil liberties, and our human rights.”
Trump tweeted in response to the Mayor “We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse”.
We need to remove all Muslims and “refugees”. They leave their own country claiming to be avoiding the war there, but instead they are spreading the war, they are a plague.
On 19 December, a man ploughed a lorry into a busy Christmas market in the heart of Berlin. The driver fled the scene but was arrested nearby.
On 18 July, a teenage Afghan refugee hacked at passengers on a train in Wuerzburg with an axe and knife, wounding five. He was shot dead by police.
On 22 July, a German teenager of Iranian heritage shot dead nine people in Munich before shooting himself dead.
On 24 July, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee killed a woman with a machete and wounded five other people as he fled before being arrested. Later that day, a 27-year-old Syrian whose refugee application had been refused blew himself up outside a bar in Ansbach. Fifteen people were wounded.
And the list goes on.
U.S President Trump has said the travel ban is necessary to protect Americans from terrorist attacks. Critics say his reasoning is flawed and assail the ban as discriminatory. Trump’s proposed ban was a centerpiece of his 2016 presidential campaign and he won. Lets compare America to the U.K, Germany, Europe, France or to any other region where refugees and Muslims are accepted. Trump has made the best decision possible to ban middle eastern countries on entering the United Sates and it is paying off.
