UPDATEWoolwich terror attack soldier named: Lee Rigby, 25, a father of a 2-year-old boy.

Two suspected terrorists were shot by armed police after attacking a pedestrian, believed to be a soldier, with a machete-style knife close to military barracks in an ‘Islamist attack’.

The Telegraph:

Local MP Nick Raynsford said he had been told the man attacked in the street was a soldier serving at the Royal Artillery Barracks near the attack.

Mr Raynsford said the soldier had been returning to the barracks after a day out when he was attacked.

London Ambulance Service said one man, believed to be the victim of the machete attack, had died in the incident and two others were injured, one seriously.

Several witnesses described seeing a “beheading” while another described seeing a man wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt being attacked with a machete-style knife and dumped.

The Telegraph is doing live updates as this horrific story unfold here.

And via the Guardian:

Brandishing a cleaver and a knife, and with the body of the victim lying yards away, the man said: “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. This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.


And just a few days ago we posted God Save the Queen.

Britain will be a Muslim country within the next 50 years or so…


One thought on “Soldier Beheaded in Islamist Terror Attack in London

  1. This is a ghastly, deplorable and dispicable act of blatant murder and should be comdemned in the strongest possible terms. There are also those who would argue that the bombing of innocent civilians in the current conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq et al are equally inhumane.
    I guess that we only become concerned about this sort of thing when it happens right on our doorstep. As people of Faith, we can only ernestly pray , “Give peace in our time, O Lord.”
