London police arrested 47-year-old Darren Osborne for a terror offense after he ran over a group of pedestrians outside of a mosque in Northern London on Monday.

Witnesses say the collision happened shortly after midnight local time.

The vehicle veered off the road and rammed into a group of worshipers leaving Ramadan services at Finsbury Park Mosque.

Counter-terrorism police and emergency crews rushed the scene, and victims were taken to nearby hospitals.

At least ten people were injured in the attack, and eight are currently in the hospital with two in serious condition.

One man also died, however, police cannot verify if his death is directly linked to the attack.

In response to the incident, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May says she is sickened by what seems like a non-stop series of attacks on her country.

The prime minister also praised law enforcement for their swift actions and attention to the victims.

The U.K. continues to be on high alert.

  • Looking at the photo which caps this article, I can’t help but have my attention drawn to the 2nd cop from the left. Unable to comply with the code for uniformed patrolmen, beardy? Let me guess: you have “religious” reasons, right?

    If that is the current state of ‘cultural enrichment’ in jolly old England, then it’s not surprising that those whose ancestors BUILT that civilization find themselves pinched as it is handed piecemeal to invaders.

  • Mike Sevilla

    islam is an ideology of a judicial secular cult not a religion. Just like its so called prophet muslims are rapist pedophile murders. islam is a cancerous disease that like cancer needs to be eradicated.
    muslims killed more than 1256 people since the hero driving the van hit their temple of murders rapist and molesters. Have you people forgotten the dead children in Manchester.

  • bucketnutz

    Well not very long ago the Muslim Mayor of London told the people of London that they had better get use to terrorism because it will be the new normal, Well Muslims should get the same message, get over it , it is destiny.

  • phasegen

    Turn about is fair play.

    Retaliation anyone?????

    LMAO reading the preceding comments and until then I thought I had an issue with MUSLIMS, looks like that couldn’t be further from the truth…… TOO BAD those ELWECTED don’t read these.

  • Ssgt Pryor

    Well someone thought they would do something themselves as the GOV are to weak. The MUSLIM leaders call for calm but don’t call for ALL MUSLIMS to root out the evil. Interesting at best…… Just 10 huh? well we will assume they were good folks right…..

  • Sandra Howard-Blanz

    Sounds like the beginning of retaliation to me.

  • Kelly Hardy

    Isn’t this typical ? Islam attacks over and over killing 100’s of 1000’s and someone retaliates and they become the haters and racists this went one for a 1000 years before the crusades and again Christians are the bad guys. Call this guy what you will but this is far from pointless civilized society has had enough

    Wow they sure don’t have any trouble calling it like it is in the media when it’s a crime against Muslims. When it’s a crime against non-Muslims it’s ‘part of life now’ and ‘the new normal’…..

  • No Mas

    The UK government is not forcing immigrants to assimilate to UK existing culture and the ongoing radical Islamist caliphate attacks and mass murders weigh on the existing UK citizens..
    IT IS TO BE EXPECTED WHEN CORRUPT AND ILL ADVISED POLITICAL LEADERS IGNORE THEIR CITIZENS. THIS ATTACK IS CAUSED BY FAILED POLITICS AND LAWS.

    • grandmother5

      Voting for Hillary would have had open border, no deportations, citizenship, etc., etc. She lives behind walls, as the other politicians do, but yet they don’t want a wall built that would stop most of the illegals. The Syrian refugees welcomed by the democrats were mostly men not women or children. Why was that? Corrupt politicians. ILL advised? I doubt that for they have their own agenda.

    We should’t jump to conclusions. It wouldn’t b the first time a nutjob jihadi killed some of his own – especially if he thought they weren’t radical enough.

  • Great. Now the lefties will disregard thousands of attacks by Muslims against European/Western people and point to this ONE stupid incident as “See, not all attacks are Muslims.”

    • grandmother5

      Exactly!

  • Bill Bates

    IMO this attacker is cut from the came cloth as the ball field shooter in Virginia – a single psychotic with a political motivation. Doesn’t matter which side or what motivation. If you want to fight a political battle, join the army. Then at least you’ll have a reasonable idea of who you’re attacking.

  • Mark P

    The new normal

  • Javanne

    There will be lots of folks condenming this, but I suspect that secretly, they are pleased to note that muslims have been shown that terrorism can work both ways. Most of the tears shed by non-muslims will likely be crocodilian in nature. Perhaps, more moderate muslims (if there IS such a thing) will now be more diligent in watching for, and reporting on potential sources of terror from within their own ranks and mosques.

  • james sanchez

    It was only a matter of time before people revolted on the Muslims in that country. There will be more revenge type attacks if the country’s don’t clamp down on terrorism.

  • claymore cluepile

    its not as if any of humanity was injured…..humans have free will…muslims have none

    It appears the Muslims just got a taste of their own medicine. No sympathy for them at all.

  • Tammany

    While this is wrong beyond words, it was bound to happen. Muslim terror has been constant all over Europe and it has been made very clear that they will “NOT ASSIMILATE ” people have had it with the constant attacks and eventually people were going to take matters into their own hands. The Mayor said get used to it.

    A rag on the news says this is a terrorist attack and not a mental health issue. They would know, since it’s their playbook.

    Satan orders his followers to prowl the streets of London stirring up fear and hatred while the local police run along behind the murderers wringing their hands.
    Meantime, here in America, Satan excites the weak-minded malcontent liberal into acts of murder while the mainline media and DemoRat leaders cheer them on. Can civil war be far behind? Soon there may well be a high profile murder that will ignite our grass root population into swarming the so called “Deep State” traitors.

    • William Glass

      Do you think that “666” is waiting in the wings to “Bring peace to the World” while “bathed in a blinding light” meanwhile “Deceiving all those who follow him”? The current situation looks all to close to the description in “Revelations”. I’m not what you call a traditional believer, but I do believe in God. I think He “Does” draw red lines and if you knowingly cross them, then you are screwed.

  • Jam Jenes

    British Prime Minister Theresa May says she will chair an emergency session of the security Cabinet later Monday after a van crash in London that is being investigating as possible terrorism.

    Do they ever do this when it’s a muz­zle attack?

    • DeplorableMe

      Hmmmmm – NO, not that I can recall. But then again, I am pretty darned biased at this point. From where I’m sitting, it sure looks like they don’t want to solve this problem – they keep allowing the flames to be fanned & more fires lit.

    I love how people immediately start laying blame. We don’t know anything, yet except what was seen. If it was a retaliatory effort, then chalk up another mark towards civil war in Britain. Brits want their country back; Muzzies want control. Civil War is inevitable…

  • Jenny

    Good! Our governments are doing nothing to stop these attacks, now citizens are forced to take action. It’s about time these moolims get a taste of their own peace and love. I hope they let the arrested man go free.

  • DeplorableMe

    Whether this was a white man – out for retribution – Or a radicalized/converted white man looking to kill moderates… doesn’t really matter to me. What does concern me is the fact the politicians/leaders have brought this upon their citizens. And they seem only too happy to continue causing structural damage to every societal damn still standing. Somehow, they seem to believe it will not eventually come to roost upon their very own doorstep.

    Very dangerous game they began & continue to play. They will not escape from the blow back.

  • 210’s

    To deflect attention away from islam some people will say that there are more muslim victims of terror attacks than non muslims. This does not lessen the role played by islam. It’s INDISCRIMINATE killing that sets islam apart from everyone else. They go more for numbers than religion or politics.

  • Mr Krabs

    I was wondering how long it would take before a Brit snaps and retaliates… maybe the left here in the US should take note. You push and push… eventually someone doesn’t push back, the hit!

    Watched an interview with muslims at the seen. They say “this kind of thing shouldn’t happen, he wasn’t drunk he did it ON PURPOSE! If this had happened in a white neighborhood and a muslim did this it would be all over the press” If the interviewer had asked him if he felt the same way about last week’s attack or the one before that where many people were killed by muslims fueled by islam for no other reason than to kill, they would have chopped off his head.

      This one might be the English trying to speak their language.

      • grandmother5

        That’s what I was thinking. Why would a terrorist attack the Muslims? Maybe if he thought the Muslims were to civilized.

        • 210’s

          Maybe they were showing their faces or not preying at the right time.

      • grandmother5

        I agree. I think they are just waiting for the perfect time. Liberal judges blocking the travel ban. SMDH!

    • Alexa

      that would be a great idea, except this attack was done by a white British man… the Manchester attack was also done by a man born and bred in Manchester.

      • 2mrixl1

        A Muslim born and bred in Manchester.

        • grandmother5

          He had just returned from a 3 week visit to his parents homeland. I really don’t remember which. Pakistan, Iran. Google it. He may have been a citizen, but he belong to a terrorist group.

      • Pat Bowman

        The problem is ideological, not birthplace-related or biological.

      • The key ingredient in ALL of these attacks is that MUSLIMS are always involved, in one way or another.

      • grandmother5

        When I saw the news I thought it had to be a non Muslim. It’s never too late to close the borders. That’s the thing with terrorists. They go to a country settle in, go to school get a degree, live a normal life, go to dinner with the locals, movies, work, they do everything right until they are told to attack. Or a terrorist can cross the border from country to country show some papers and drive to a town place a bomb, run over people, they will kill anyway they can. Manchester terrorist just return from a three week visit from his parents home land. I think he had been back around 2-3 days before he bombed the concert goers. They may be “born” in one country that doesn’t mean they would not harm that country. Young people from all over the world is joining or trying to join a terrorist group.

  • Agnar Schnell

    No, this can’t be terrorism. There is no way of knowing because we don’t have enough information on the state of global warming in London at the time the alleged incident took place. I’d say that a formal investigation must be opened and everyone allegedly involved be interviewed first.

    • Dan

      I suppose that is sarcasm? Of course it is terrorism

      • 210’s

        Maybe reverse terrorism. Like reverse racism.

          It doesn’t in this article, but it has been confirmed by the British news

      • jc Dalia

        Ergo, the Muslim spokespeople calling it Islamophobia… Sounds like it could be an act of retaliation, if the perpetrator is not a white Muslim terrorist convert.

        • Alexa

          it probably was an act of retaliation in the attackers eyes, only problem is it wasn’t those Muslims who are the terrorists, they were just innocent people.

          • jc Dalia

            So were the young girls at the Manchester concert, which probably stirred up significant vindictive thinking. It doesn’t make killing non-combatants the right approach, but I find it unsurprising.

          • grandmother5

            Just like the kids at the concert or the people walking on the bridge or eating at the restaurant. I think it was payback. Maybe the terrorists will stop and think before attacking again. I doubt it, but maybe.

          • Alexa

            payback won’t work though terrorists don’t care about other Muslims, they bomb they’re own people just as much as they attack us. ISIS attacked and killed 12 muslim people in the Iran capital only two weeks ago. If it was a guy who attacked suspected ISIS Muslims then sure, fair game, but these guys who where attacked are no different to the innocent kids at the concert or those on the bridge.

          • grandmother5

            True. Terrorists are known to kill their own family. Muslims will stone a woman because she was raped. Muslims cut off hands if someone steals. No end to what a bad Muslim will do or can do. Innocent is not a word they know or use. They don’t care.

          • paqza

            You’re right – I misunderstood your comment. I completely agree with you that there’s no end to what a “bad Muslim” or even bad person, in general, will do, and these people need to be stopped.

          • paqza

            So killing innocent civilians is okay as “payback”?

          • grandmother5

            Of course not and I didn’t say it was okay. When I said “think it was payback”, I was talking about the person that did it.

          • David Bagdasarian

            If they condone their “religions” tenants to convert or kill all “nonbelievers” then they are NOT innocent people. Sorry!

          • Alexa

            I do agree if they did condone them, but you don’t know if those Muslims he ran down did or not. A whole load of imams (their priests) refused to give the terrorist who died in London attacks funerals… I’m not saying that killing terrorist isnt just and right but killing regular people that you don’t know just becuase of a religion isn’t.
