Better, but always provide an official news source. There were plenty at that time.

Re: And so it begins, mosque attacked in London

I like the way they're referring to it as a "suspected" terrorist incident. When it very clearly is one.

It was only a matter of time.

Surely it is a good old fashioned racial hate crime?

Agree with this. I wouldn't call it terrorism in any traditional sense. It seems like a 'retaliatory' attack.

I think the fact that this attack is intended to intimidate civilians of the same religion make it an act of terrorism.

The driver was apparently shouting "kill all Muslims" and the van was also described as "white" - so at present it looks like a racial attack - despite what the Rudd and co will have us believe.

Have you even read the news articles? It's apparently a white driver who shouted "I'm going to kill all Muslims". He's therefore likely not a Muslim.
