9:00 am, England. I wake up this morning to the shocking news that there has been a terrorist attack in London last night. All around me, panic. These are my rough notes. Here are the basic facts:
— Yesterday evening (Saturday), shortly after 10 p.m., a terrorist attack occurs on London Bridge and in the nearby Borough Market. This is a busy area of bars and restaurants, especially at 10 p.m. on a Saturday night, and the place is thronged with visitors.
— At 10.08 p.m. a white van begins plowing into pedestrians on London Bridge, mounting the pavement and swerving from side to side. After crossing the bridge into Borough Market, three men jump out of the van. Armed with knives, they run into nearby bars and restaurants and start stabbing people to death at random.
— 7 killed, 48 injured, some of them critically. Ambulances screaming, paramedics going wild, the dead and the wounded raced to five nearby London hospitals.
— Eyewitness (of one the terrorists): “He looked weird and out of place…” Another eyewitness: “He came into the bar and began stabbing this girl … about ten times!”
— Armed officers arrive on the scene eight minutes after the attacks begin and the three attackers are shot dead. Each is wearing a fake explosive vest. No mention is made of the men’s age, physical appearance, or ethnic origin. They are simply described as “three males.”
— Ramadan is mentioned in the news report. We are told Islamic State (ISIS) has told its operatives that this is the time to step up terrorist attacks and cause maximum mayhem.
— The whole area is swarming with screaming cops, sniffer dogs, grim looking paramedics, stretchers, ambulances, people with blood on their faces. The cops enter bars and scream: “Get down!” People are crouching under tables, playing dead. Other cops are ordering the public to “start running”. We see crowds of people run down the street, their hands placed on their heads to show they are not armed.
— This attack has occurred two weeks after the Manchester terror attack and four days before Britain’s general election on June 8.
— Prime Minister Theresa May has left the campaign trail and is due to make an announcement at 10 am. Which is a few minutes from now. I think the possibility of her postponing the general election is great, but I wouldn’t like to predict this. She is doing badly in the polls, her popularity having slipped dramatically in the last two weeks from a lead of 25 points to a 4-5 point lead. Postponing the election might increase her chances of getting a better result.
— It comes as no surprise to learn that this latest terrorist attack has already been denounced as yet another “false flag attack” or “terror hoax”.
— Finally, we learn that Ariana Grande, heroine of the Manchester terror attack, is “praying hard” for the victims of the London Bridge attack. Hopefully, God will hear the prayers of this saintly singer and ensure that casualties are kept to a minimum.
“I’m praying for London”
