Muslim Council of Britain Cries Islamophobia After Latest Attack
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, there has been yet another attack in London involving a van mowing down pedestrians near a mosque in Finsbury Park. Witnesses claim that a man emerged from the van with a knife and yelled, “I want to kill all Muslims!”.

One man was arrested by police, though some eyewitnesses report there may have been up to three people in the van.
London’s Metropolitan Police issued the following statement after the attack: “Police were called just after 0020hrs 18 June to reports of a vehicle in collision with pedestrians. Officers are on scene with other emergency services. There are a number of casualties being worked on at the scene. There has been one person arrested. Enquiries continue.”
The mosque had just let out after taraweeh — special, hour-long Ramadan prayers.
Unconfirmed video from the incident shows several people lying on the floor injured, as people detain the alleged attacker.”
According to the Muslim Council of Britain this was an Islamophobic attack caused by the rhetoric of the far Right:
“We should make clear that if this attack is confirmed as a deliberate terrorist attack then this should be classed as an act of terrorism.
“The British Muslim community requires all decent people to stand with us against this evil violence.
“Rampant Islamaphobia [sic] has been on the rise for a number of years and those on the far right have perpetuated hatred against Muslims. They should be called out for their hatred.
“The days ahead will be difficult, but with unity and tolerance we will prevail. We will not allow these far right extremists to divide our diverse communities.
The MCB is quick to assert this narrative is normative of “far right” terrorism despite the fact that it is not at all normal. On all accounts it is dwarfed by the incidents and implications of Islamic terrorism. It is easy to see how the left will use this tragedy to prop up an agenda while averting their eyes from the real problem at hand: the Islamic takeover of Europe.
The Salafist Finsbury Park mosque has prominently been in the news for being home of infamous hate preacher Abu Hamza Al Masri, as well as 9/11 terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui and the “shoe bomber” Richard Reid being regular attendees.
Will London Mayor Sadiq Khan blame this attack on “part and parcel” of living in a big city, as he did with the prior three London attacks.
