As of Sunday morning, 12 people in Barking, east London, were arrested in connection with the attacks, and police continued to search a number of addresses in the Barking area.London terror attack: 'Significant progress' made in identifying assailantsBy Julia Jacobo and Emily Shapiro, ABC News, June 4, 2017These arrestees haven’t been identified by name, immigration status, race or religion either.(Note that British police complained bitterly when Manchester Massacre perp Salman Abedi’s name was “leaked” by, presumably, Americans. [Media leak of Manchester bomber’s ID further undermines U.S. credibility around world, Washington Times, May 24, 2016] But otherwise would we know yet that the attacker was a “British-born” Muslim?)One group is willing to say the attackers are Muslim—the Islamic State. They’ve claimed responsibility.And there’s the usual statement from an immigrant Muslim spokesman, who also seems to be acting on the stereotype that the attackers were Muslims:
Harun Khan, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said Muslims everywhere were "outraged and disgusted at these cowards who once again have destroyed the lives of our fellow Britons".London attack: 12 arrested in Barking after van and knife attack, BBC, June 4, 2017. Link in original.But Harun Khan is wrong. The attackers were not, in fact, “cowards”—they were, after all, willing to fight to the death. They were what those of Khan’s fellow “Britons” who happen to be Muslims call “shaheeds”—literally “martyrs”, but in English we would call them either “suicide commandos” or kamikazes. The word for this kind of attack is not “cowardly” but treacherous—since they don’t wear uniforms but act like regular members of British society until they start killing people.Donald Trump, after hearing reports the latest (presumed) Muslim terrorism in Britain, tweeted:
And my goodness, has there ever been backlash against that!
We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2017
Reza Aslan, the human brain-eating CNN host of Believer expressed not the slightest hint of sympathy for the victims of the June 3 terror attacks in London on Twitter. Instead, he was solely animated by intense hatred of President Donald Trump to the extent that he cursed him out as you can see in the following tweet:He’s since apologized (for the profanity)and deleted the Tweet about Trump, but who cares? (By the way, if you’re wondering why Gladnick refers to Aslan as “human brain-eating” click on the link—Reza Aslan [Email him] ate part of a human brain when reporting on an Hindu sect).There’s also this—London’s Muslim Mayor, Sadiq Khan, who has notoriously said that that Muslim terror attacks like the one that hit New York in September 2016, are “part and parcel of life in a big city”. [Evening Standard, September 18, 2016.]When Mayor Khan was telling Londoners that there was nothing to be alarmed about, Trump tweeted
And, guess what, Mayor Khan, who was so calm about Muslim terror, is now really mad [BREAKING : London’s Muslim Mayor is More Angry at Trump Than Terrorists, By Amy Moreno, TruthFeed, June 4, 2017]I could give advice to Britain about dealing with this kind of terror. Like this:

“I can’t imagine what this place (the Supreme Court) would be—I can’t imagine what the country would be—with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be—I don’t even want to contemplate that.”[Ruth Bader Ginsburg, No Fan of Donald Trump, Critiques Latest Term, By Adam Liptak, NYT, July 10, 2016]See Trump Vs. Ginburg: Why Did The GOP Confirm Her In The First Place? (a worthwhile question) by Pat Buchanan.If we want to avoid more Muslim crimes like the London attack and the many American attacks before and after 9/11, we need the Travel Ban as a minimum. But we can’t have that until we rein in the Imperial Judiciary.James Fulford (Email him) is a writer and editor for VDARE.com
