FOUR people are dead – including police officer and terrorist – and 20 more injured – after killer mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before killer is shot attacking police in Parliament grounds

(DAILY MAIL) — Three people and a terrorist are dead after an attacker brought carnage to central London today, mowing down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and hacking at police with knives in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.

At least 20 people were hit when a 4×4 drove along the pavement on the crowded bridge, knocking down and seriously injuring pedestrians before crashing into a fence below Big Ben.

The killer, described by witnesses as ‘middle-aged and Asian’, then managed to break into the grounds of Parliament, where he fatally stabbed a police officer with two knives.

The policeman died at the scene. The attacker, who was shot by armed officers, died after he was taken to hospital.

It is currently believed one attacker was involved and he killed three people, including the policeman, and left at least 20 pedestrians and three other police officers seriously injured.

Prime Minister Theresa May was bundled into her car by a plain-clothes police officer and driven quickly from the scene as the attack unfolded. She will chair a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra Committee tonight.

Scotland Yard said the attack, which comes a year to the day after the terrorist atrocities in Brussels, is being treated ‘as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise’.

Boat migrants landing in Italy ‘at a pace exceeding anything we’ve seen before’

(BREITBART) — by Jack Montgomery

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) estimates 20,484 migrants have arrived in Europe by sea since the beginning of 2017, with numbers likely to explode as the continent heads into spring.

These totals do not include 3,312 migrants picked up off Libya on the 19th of March who are currently en route to Italy, according to the text of the IOM’s report.

Including these migrants puts the number of Italian arrivals well ahead of the total for the first three months of 2015 (10,165) and the first three months of 2016 (18,777) – and March 2017 has over a week still to go.

“We have yet to complete March, and we are already racing at a pace of arrivals that has exceeded anything we’ve seen before in the Mediterranean,” IOM spokesman Joel Millman told Reuters.

“This is typical of spring, getting very busy, but it’s not typical to have the numbers be so high this early and the corresponding deaths that go with it.”

Study: One third of young Muslims in France think terrorism is “acceptable”

(INFOWARS) — Paul Joseph Watson

A third of young Muslims in France think that terrorism is “acceptable” a new study has found, with the full report being delayed until after the election because it is not “politically correct”.

Findings of the study, which canvassed the opinions of 6828 high school students after the 2015 Paris attacks, were presented at a press conference in the French capital by researchers Olivier Galland and Anne Muxel.

The results are disturbing but not surprising given attitudes amongst Muslims living in European countries.

– A young Muslim is four times more likely to adhere to radical beliefs than a Christian.

– 33% of Muslim students consider it “acceptable” to “participate in violent actions for his ideas”. In other words, a third are sympathetic towards terrorism.

– 20% of Muslim students agreed with the statement that it was “acceptable to stand up for your religion with weapons”.

– 24% of those surveyed refused to fully condemn the Charlie Hebdo killings.

– 21% of those surveyed refused to fully condemn the Bataclan theater massacre during which 89 people were killed as part of the wider November 13 Paris attack that claimed 130 lives.

It is worth emphasizing that the percentage of young Muslims who refused to condemn Charlie Hebdo and the November 13 massacre are likely to be much higher than the numbers listed above given that those results are representative of the entire sample, and Muslims make up just 25% of the sample.

“When asked if these attitudes could be due to economic and social factors or a sense of victimization, the researchers responded that “membership in the Muslim religion is the most predictive factor,” notes Westmonster.

The results were “not very politically correct,” remarked French journalist Gurvan Le Guellec, while others at the press conference expressed concern about the timing, noting that the full report would not be released until after the election.

Left-wing newspaper Le Monde slammed the researchers for “opening Pandora’s box” by simply relating the facts of the study.

However, the results are in line with previous polls such as a 2006 Pew Global Attitudes study which found that 42% of Muslims aged 18-29 thought that suicide bombings were sometimes justified.

Marion Le Pen to Erdogan: ‘The future of Turkish people living in Europe is in Turkey’

(INFORMATION LIBERATION) — By Chris Menahan

Marion Le Pen responded to Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s urging Turks to “have five kids” in order to demographically conquer Europe by saying “the future of Turkish people living in Europe is in Turkey.”

“Dear Erdogan, the future of Turkish people living in Europe is in Turkey,” Le Pen wrote on Twitter Saturday.

Erdogan told supporters at a rally last Friday to “have not just three but five children.”

“The place in which you are living and working is now your homeland and new motherland,” he said. “Stake a claim to it. Open more businesses, enroll your children in better schools, make your family live in better neighborhoods, drive the best cars, live in the most beautiful houses.”

On Sunday, Erdogan said Merkel was “employing Nazi measures” by banning Turkish diplomats from lobbying Turks in Europe to vote in favor of a measure to expand his presidential powers.

“When we call them Nazis they [Europe] get uncomfortable. They rally together in solidarity. Especially Merkel,” he said. “But you are right now employing Nazi measures. Against who? My Turkish brother citizens in Germany and brother ministers.”

Turkey’s Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu threatened last Thursday to “blow the mind” of Europe by sending 15,000 so-called “refugees” a month to the EU.

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also threatened on the same day that “Holy wars will soon begin in Europe.”

It cannot get anymore clear what’s happening in Europe is not a “migration,” but a hostile invasion.

Islam in Australia: Teacher quits after primary school students threaten to behead her

(YAHOO) — Frightened teachers at a Sydney primary school have revealed students are showing signs of extreme radicalization at a young age, saying they have been traumatized by threats of beheading and other violent behavior.

Students as young as in Year 5 are making the threats and pressuring peers into reading the Koran at Punchbowl Public School in Sydney’s southwest, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Documents given to the newspaper reportedly reveal that at least three staff members have taken stress leave, received counseling and been paid compensation after bullying from Islamic students.

One woman reportedly claimed it all got too much for her and she eventually had to quit her job.

She said the final straw was when she received death threats to her family from her year 5 and 6 students, with some saying they would behead her.

Prior to that she claimed she made a number of complaints in 2014 about some of the behavior in her classroom.

She said she was abused by students when she stopped them from hanging a Syrian flag in the classroom.

Plaintiff behind Trump travel ban runs Muslim Brotherhood mosque

(WND) — By Leo Hohmann

The main plaintiff in the Hawaii case blocking President Trump’s revised temporary travel ban is an imam with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The irony is hard to miss: Trump has talked about declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and now it is a Brotherhood-backed imam who is playing a key role in blocking his executive order on immigration.

Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.

One of those six countries is Syria. Elshikh’s mother in law is Syrian and would not be able to visit her family in Hawaii for 90 days if Trump’s ban were allowed to go into effect.

Hawaii’s Obama-appointed federal judge, Derrick Watson, made sure the ban did not go into effect, striking it down Wednesday while buying Hawaii’s claim that it amounts to a “Muslim ban.” The state’s attorney general, along with co-plaintiff Elshikh, claims the ban would irreparably harm the state’s tourism industry and its Muslim families.

Six out of 10 people in France ‘don’t feel safe anywhere’

(BREITBART) — by Virginia Hale

Fearing terror attacks, the majority of people in France are pessimistic about the nation’s security situation, with six in 10 saying they no longer feel safe anywhere according to an IFOP-FIDUCIAL poll.

The survey found that 93 per cent of French believe the threat of more terror attacks is high, and 71 per cent feel the security situation in France has got worse over the last five years.

More broadly, 59 per cent of those polled said they did not feel safe anywhere, with almost one in four (24 per cent) opting to “strongly agree” with the statement.

Reflecting the insecurity respondents said they felt, 69 per cent think the police and gendarmerie are understaffed, and the survey found the French overwhelmingly have a positive view of law enforcement.

The vast majority of respondents (88 per cent) believe France should deport foreigners sentenced to prison for serious offenses, and 84 per cent want the country to create more prison places.

Rioting by Turks in Rotterdam may sway Dutch election towards Geert Wilders

(LEGAL INSURRECTION) — A diplomatic dispute between the Netherlands and Turkey has led to rioting by Turks in Rotterdam and a diplomatic crisis that could influence the Dutch elections that are just a few days away.

Thousands of Turkish immigrants rioted in the streets of Rotterdam early Sunday following the Dutch government’s decision to bar two Turkish ministers from entering the country.

The Mayor of Rotterdam issued emergency orders late Saturday in an attempt to contain a demonstration supporting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan outside the Turkish consulate in the city which has turned into a rallying point for Turkish immigrants.

Today morning, pro-Erdogan rioters vandalized the consulate of the Netherlands in the Turkish city of Istanbul and took down the Dutch flag replacing it with a Turkish flag, French news agency AFP reports.

With just 3 Days to go until the Dutch general election, local authorities revoked landing rights for Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, citing “risks to public order and security”. Turkey’s Family Affairs Minister Fatma Kaya was also escorted back to Germany in the early hours of Sunday, Germany’s state broadcaster DW News confirmed.

These Turkish ministers intended to campaign for the next month’s referendum that would allow President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to alter the country’s constitution and remain in power until 2029. The Netherlands is home to some 400,000 people of Turkish origin and many of them are eligible to vote in the Turkish referendum.
