SUSPECTED MUSLIM TERRORISTS HACK MAN TO DEATH ON BUSY LONDON STREET

May 23, 2013

Fox News on May 22, 2013, reported that two men wielding a machete and a cleaver hacked a man believed to be a soldier to death on a busy London street Wednesday while yelling “Allahu Akbar,” in an attack that was caught on video and left the nation shocked and horrified. Excerpts below:

The victim, who is said to have been a soldier, was killed at the scene, and the attackers waited at the scene until police arrived and shot both. One attacker, his hands soaked in blood and still holding a machete, delivered an angry jihadist screed as stunned passersby watched, the dead man lying on the street, in the southeast London neighborhood of Woolwich.

“We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day,” he said in a video clip that was shown on the ITV website. “This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

“I apologize that women have had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same,” the killer continued. “You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you.”

Witnesses said the attackers shouted “Allahu Akbar,” Arabic for “God is Great,” during the bloody rampage, according to the BBC.

Police said two attackers were shot by authorities

“These two guys were crazed. They were just animals,” one witness, identified as James, told LBC radio. “They dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road and left his body there.”

British Prime Minister David Cameron, who cut short a visit to Paris, condemned the killing as “truly shocking,” and said there are “strong indications” that the attack was terror-related..

Both French President Francois Hollande and MP Nick Raynsford told the BBC the dead man had been a soldier.

Scotland Yard said officers responded to reports of the assault, which took place just a few blocks from a the Royal Artillery Barracks.
