Woolwich killing: The long-feared attack

Wednesday’s events in Woolwich have shocked the UK – but this was precisely the kind of attack that security chiefs have long feared could come.

The warning signs that a soldier would one day be targeted on the streets of Britain can be found in the heart of al-Qaeda’s violent ideology and how that has been interpreted by followers in the UK and other Western nations.

The mindset of violent jihadists is influenced by many different factors – but one common factor among those who have been involved in acts of politically-motivated violence is the basic principle that they oppose a Western presence in the Islamic world…

 

Woolwich attack: Watch shocking video of terrorists charging at police car to try to kill WPC

The footage obtained by the Daily Mirror reveals how, after beheading the soldier, they hatched a plot to ambush and murder the first police officers to come to his aid…

…When the first police car arrived the pair split up in a pre-planned manoeuvre with knife-wielding Michael Adebolajo charging them head-on, while his accomplice ran up alongside, aiming his revolver at them.  [emphasis CAJ]

The film of the 10 seconds of terror show how Adebolajo got within TWO FEET of the terrified female cop who was driving the armed response vehicle.

She was armed with just a Taser as she sat in the driver’s seat of the BMW X5 and was only saved when a male colleague sitting in the back made a split-second decision to fire his machine-gun from point blank range through the window…

 

CAJ note: It is illegal to own guns and many types of knives in Britain. Oh, and here’s a surprise:

…Abedolajo, a Muslim from a Christian family, has also been linked with hate preacher Anjem Choudary

Melanie Phillips, Denial is still a river in Londonistan

…For more than two decades, the British political and security establishment has gone to extreme lengths to deny the true religious nature of the Islamic jihad, or holy war, against the free world and ‘backsliding’ Muslims (who are the jihad’s most numerous victims). There are several reasons for this state of denial, of which in my view the key is that to the official mind a holy war is such a fearsome prospect – it’s uncontrollable, can last for decades, is driven by wholly irrational motives immune to negotiation and is characterised by unmitigated savagery — they cannot admit that this is what it actually is.

So instead they come up with absurd statements like the one made to me some years ago by a very senior security official, who said this couldn’t be an Islamic religious war because to say it was would demonise all Muslims…
