Muslim terrorist mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before being eliminated attacking police in Parliament grounds

A knife-wielding Muslim terrorist was shot by armed police in the grounds of Parliament today after pedestrians were mowed down on Westminster Bridge.

Three people were murdered after a Muslim terrorist brought carnage to central London today, mowing down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before attacking police with a knife in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.

Twenty people were hit by a vehicle on the bridge after a Muslim terrorist in a 4×4 drove into pedestrians and cyclists before crashing into the gates of Parliament.

A ‘middle-aged Asian’ Muslim terrorist then managed to break into the grounds of the Houses of Parliament and stabbed a police officer before he was shot and eliminated.

Injured people were seen on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down.

Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police officer and driven quickly from the scene.

Commons Leader David Lidington told MPs a ‘police officer has been stabbed’ and the ‘alleged assailant was shot by armed police’ following a ‘serious’ incident within the parliamentary estate.

Witness Jayne Wilkinson said: ‘We were taking photos of Big Ben and we saw all the people running towards us, and then there was an Asian guy in about his 40s carrying a knife about seven or eight inches long.

‘And then there were three shots fired, and then we crossed the road and looked over. The man was on the floor with blood.

‘He had a lightweight jacket on, dark trousers and a shirt. He was running through those gates, towards Parliament, and the police were chasing him.’

Her partner David Turner added: ‘There was a stampede of people running out. You saw the people and you thought ‘what the hell is going on’.’

After the incident, Radoslaw Sikorski posted a video to Twitter purporting to show people lying injured in the road on Westminster Bridge.

People outside the palace could be seen running from the scene when the shots were heard.

An eye witness said that a car was seen to mow down five people on Westminster Bridge.

Police are then believed to have shot a man who tried to enter the Parliamentary Estate.

The terror attack comes weeks after it was revealed that UK security services have foiled 13 potential attacks in less than four years, while counter-terrorism units are running more than 500 investigations at any time.

The official threat level for international terrorism has stood at severe, meaning an attack is ‘highly likely’, for more than two years.

It is currently known that:

  • One woman was killed on Westminster Bridge after a number of pedestrians were mowed down by a car.
  • It is believed a second person was killed in the attack on the bridge.
  • Another woman ended up in the Thames and was treated for serious injuries after being pulled from the water.
  • A group of French schoolchildren were among those targeted on the bridge.
  • The Muslim terrorist jumped out the car and fatally stabbed a police officer in the grounds of the Palace of Westminster.
  • The terrorist was shot and eliminated moments later by another officer.
  • Police are treating the terror attack as a terrorist attack.
  • Prime Minister Theresa May will be chairing a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee.


Bombing attack thwarted on Gaza border; one terrorist eliminated

An 18-year-old Gazan terrorist was eliminated and another was wounded overnight Tuesday from IDF fire near the Gaza border fence, according to Arab reports.

The IDF said that three Gazans were spotted making their way towards the security border fence in southern Gaza and arouse the suspicion of IDF lookouts.

The three appeared to be doing something on the ground and were in a no-go area, the IDF said.


In response, an IDF tank fired shells in their direction, and one of them was hit.

The IDF is investigating whether the three were trying to plant an explosive device.

The incident overnight is the latest of a series of incidents on the Gaza border fence since February.

Earlier this month, the IDF neutralized explosives planted near the fence. In another incident, an IDF engineering force operating near the fence came under fire. In a third incident, a Hamas drone trying to infiltrate Israel was shot down by the Israel Air Force.

In addition, five rockets fired from the Gaza Strip fell inside Israel during the same time period.

Canada: Jews called “Rodents” at Ontario University Following Cultural Festival

After a message comparing Jews to rodents was posted on Facebook in honor of an anti-Israel event at an Ontario university, administrators vowed to investigate and take action against the perpetrators.

“We don’t know yet if any of our students were involved, but we are looking at the incident and will follow our code of conduct if we find that they were,” said University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) vice president of external relations Susan McGovern about the school’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine celebrating online, following the covering up of an Israeli flag with its Algerian counterpart at an on-campus multicultural language festival.

Other social media posts — which have all since been deleted — included telling a Jewish student to “go back to Palestine,” according to the Jewish human rights group B’nai Brith Canada.

“We work very, very hard to create students who will be good citizens, who we can proudly launch into society,” McGovern said. “We certainly do not condone such behavior and will not drop the ball on this matter.”

Michael Mostyn, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada, said that he has worked closely with the UOIT administration regarding this incident and others, and commended the school for its strong, proactive approach.

“Unfortunately, we have seen stuff like this on campuses all across North America on a a regular basis,” he said. “How a school deals with an incident to shape its future is what really matters, and, as of now, UOIT has been very responsive.”

Following the incident, UOIT’s president issued a statement reviewing the university’s values, so as to “remind ourselves of who we are.”

Last year, the administration publicly said that it does not support the anti-Israel BDS movement, after the UOIT student association banned the campus’s only pro-Israel group, Hasbara Fellowships, from participating in Social Justice Week. (The incident is currently under review by the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal).

The incident at UOIT was the latest in a string of what have been called antisemitic activities on Canadian campuses, including a staged walkout of a vote on Holocaust education at Toronto’s Ryerson University and the support for a former student rep who tweeted “punch a Zionist” at McGill.

Hamas seeks new map software: ‘Google is not accurate enough for rockets’

The arrest of Muhammad Murtaja, coordinator of the Gaza branch of the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency, revealed the extent of cooperation and assistance to Hamas terrorists.

Among other things, it turned out that in the past two years, Hamas asked the Turkish IHH organization for advanced mapping programs to improve rocket attacks on the Israeli home front, and especially on strategic sites.

Hamas, according to the investigation, used Google maps to fire more than 4,000 rockets to hit Israeli targets, but in most cases, the rockets were either intercepted or missed their targets altogether.


Murtaja said that he was supposed to fly to Turkey to receive a disk-on-key intended for Hamas, which consisted of improved and elaborately detailed maps of various sites in Israel, which were based on Turkish technological data acquired following Turkey’s involvement in the satellite launch project.

Murtaja said in his interrogation that he witnessed the transfer of suitcases laden with cash from the IHH organization in Turkey (which was responsible for the Gaza flotilla) to senior Hamas officials, including senior terrorists Raed Salah, Ismail Radwan and Ismail Haniyeh.

This case is unusual compared to previous similar affairs, since this time, a Hamas operative was groomed in the military wing, trained with the regiments of the Shati neighborhood and operated alongside the battalion commanders. As an engineer, he became an expert on TNT and the manufacturing of advanced explosives and explosive devices.


In 2012, he was appointed head of the Turkish government’s humanitarian aid organization in Gaza (TIKA).

The indictment filed last Thursday against Murtaja lists multiple offenses, among them misusing of resources and funds intended for humanitarian projects in the Gaza Strip by diverting them to Hamas’s military wing.

Moreover, the terrorist took part in the digging of a tunnel after Operation Protective Edge that would potentially be used by Hamas terrorists to attack IDF forces or civilians.

US bans laptops, iPads and cameras on inbound flights from some Muslim countries

The US government is barring passengers on Royal Jordanian Airlines flights from bringing laptops, iPads, cameras and other electronics in carry-on luggage on certain U.S.-bound flights starting Tuesday, the airline said in a tweet on Monday.

The airline said cellphones and medical devices are excluded from the ban. Everything else would need to be packed in checked luggage.

It is unclear what other countries and airlines the ban will apply to, how long it will be in place or what prompted it.


The airline has since deleted their Twitter post announcing the ban but many shocked social media users documented the initial message.

A US government official said such a ban has been considered for several weeks. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose the internal security discussions by the federal government.

The ban would begin just before Wednesday’s meeting of the US-led coalition against ISIS in Washington. A number of top Arab officials were expected to attend the State Department gathering. It was unclear whether their travel plans were related to any increased worry about security threats.

An aviation security expert said the policy would raise other safety issues.

‘There would be a huge disadvantage to having everyone put their electronics in checked baggage,’ said Jeffrey Price, a professor at Metropolitan State University of Denver. He said thefts from baggage would skyrocket, as when England tried a similar ban in 2006, and ‘some laptops have batteries that can catch fire and it’s easier to detect it when it’s in the cabin rather than burning in the hold.’

However, there are also advantages to screening items in checked baggage instead of as carry-on luggage.

Most major airports in the United States have a computer tomography or CT scanner for checked baggage, which creates a detailed picture of a bag’s contents. They can warn an operator of potentially dangerous material, and may provide better security than the X-ray machines used to screen passengers and their carry-on bags.

Iran’s supreme: Gender equality is ‘Zionist conspiracy’

Iran’s supreme leader Khamenei accused Israel and the West of promoting women’s exploitation for the purpose of earthly pleasures, calling it a “Zionist conspiracy” aimed at destroying human society.

In quotes relayed by Iranian news agency Mehr, Khamenei, who was speaking at an event that mostly focused on women’s position in Islamic society, mocked the West’s ideal of gender equality, claiming that raising certain topics in support of women’s rights actually undermines their position in society, which is predetermined by God.


“These aberrant and neglectful people humiliate the role of a housewife while a housewife is actually in charge of raising and educating the most valuable product, which is a human being,” said Khamenei, adding “unfortunately, sometimes inside the country and in some Islamic environments, tasks and expectations are ascribed to women that in fact collapse and humiliate their roles.”

The Iranian leader then referred to some similarities and differences between men and women as decided by God, saying “despite sharing similar goals like ‘rising to spiritual positions,’ ‘leadership,’ and ‘the ability to guide human beings,’ men and women are different when it comes to responsibilities in management of life.

Ayatollah Khamenei, while referring to promotion of concepts like ‘gender equality’ and ‘gender justice’ in the West, said justice means recognizing and nurturing God-given potentials of men and women, not burdening them with false freedom.

“Today, Western scholars and those who pursue issues like gender equality all regret their actions for the corruption they caused,” he claimed, expressing hope that views of those who raised similar issues inside the country were not based on the Western alleged misconception.

Shin Bet chief: 400 arrests prevented hundreds of terror attacks

Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) Director Nadav Argaman, speaking before the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Security Committee warned on Monday morning that despite the current relative calm, Hamas and other terrorists entities may attempt to carry out attacks ahead of the upcoming Passover holiday.

“The relative calm that we are experiencing at this time is quite deceiving, it’s misleading and deluding because Hamas and global jihadi infrastructure are working every day in attempt to conduct terror attacks in Israeli territory,” he stated at a meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

“We’re approaching the Passover holiday. There is no question that the terror networks, particularly Hamas, will try to escalate the situation and carry out terror attacks. Our goal is to keep the holidays quiet.”

“We are engaged day and night in thwarting attacks,” he said. “We have stopped more than 400 potential hazards before they materialized into terrorist attacks.”

Noting that 16 civilians and one foreign national were killed last year as the result of terror attacks, the Shin Bet chief also spoke of the technological and operational developments the Israeli security apparatus has made in light of the continued threat of terrorism.

“We are currently experiencing significant changes in the geo-strategic arena that will be relevant for many years to come as a power struggle, the ramification of which are the result of the impact by the nuclear deal with Iran on terrorism in the Middle East,” he asserted.

Israel will destroy Syrian air defense systems if targeted again by Assad regime

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman threatened to destroy Syrian air defense systems after they fired ground-to-air missiles at Israeli warplanes carrying out strikes targeting a Hezbollah weapons convoy.

“The next time the Syrians use their air defense systems against our planes we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation,” Liberman said on Israel Radio.

The IDF on Friday confirmed its first operational use of the advanced Arrow missile defense system, which it said was used to shoot down a Syrian anti-aircraft missile that was fired at an Israeli jet.

Israeli warplanes had attacked several targets in Syria, the IDF said, prompting the Syrian attack.

It was the most serious incident between the two countries since the Syrian civil war began six years ago.

“We have no interest in interfering in the Syrian civil war, not for nor against Assad, and we have no interest in clashing with the Russians,” Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman clarified Sunday.

“Our main problem is with the transfer of advanced weapons from Syria to Lebanon. That is why every time we identify an attempt to smuggle game-changing weapons, we will act to thwart it. There will be no compromise on this issue,” the defense minister stressed. “If the IDF does choose to act, there is a real reason for it.”


Muslim terrorist known to French authorities is shot and eliminated at Orly airport near Tel Aviv check-in

French security officials have identified as a known Muslim terrorist the man who Saturday grabbed a gun from an Orly airport security guard near the check-in desk for Tel Aviv.

‘A convicted criminal with links to radical Islam’ has been shot dead at Paris Orly airport after trying to wrestle a soldier’s gun from her and fleeing into a McDonald’s.

Less than two hours earlier he had shot a female police officer in the head in a northern Paris suburb after a routine stop-and-search operation.

The terrorist’s father and brother have been taken into custody, judicial sources have confirmed.

Officials have confirmed that the shooting in Stains, where a gunman opened fire on three police officers, was carried out by the Muslim terrorist who was later killed.

After the police shooting, the 39-year-old terrorist fled in a Renault Clio, which was later found abandoned 11 miles away on the other side of Paris.

He hijacked a woman’s car at gunpoint, and this second car was later found parked at the airport.

This finding supports the French police in their assumption that the terrorist was not acting alone but part of a terrorist conspiracy.

The terrorist had previously been jailed for drug trafficking and was radicalized in prison, according to reports in Paris.

He has not been formally identified, but was a ‘homeless French national’ on the run from the authorities, according to police sources.

Orly airport is meanwhile under terror alert. Air flights are indefinitely suspended and the terminal evacuated as police comb through the large area for explosives.

Passengers landing at Orly were kept on planes while the anti-terror operation is carried out.

France’s anti-terrorism prosecutor has opened an investigation into the shootings.
