British Woman Beheaded By Muslim Convert

Just a "random" attack...

An 82-year-old woman was beheaded in a north London suburban garden by a man with a machete.

Palmira Silva, a widow and grandmother described as "such a sweet lady" by one neighbour, was killed outside her home in Edmonton in a random but frenzied assault by a 25-year-old. [...]

One line of inquiry for detectives is understood to be that the man was inspired by recent footage of terrorists beheading two American journalists in Syria.

Some residents claimed last night that the suspect was a local man who had converted to Islam last year, but those claims could not be verified. Detectives said they had ruled out terrorism

Police have not yet discovered a motive. But it's not terrorism, so everyone can carry on.

Update by Howie:

The Standard:

Details have begun to emerge about the man arrested for the murder of a great grandmother beheaded in her back garden.

He was named locally as Nicholas Salvadore, a 25-year-old would-be cage fighter who is believed to be a Muslim convert, who had been living a few doors from 82-year-old Palmira Silva.

Neighbours said a man dressed in black had decapitated cats with a foot-long machete-like blade and smashed the window of a car before running through rear gardens banging on doors and windows.

One told how he heard him shouting “the cats have stolen my lighter” as he hacked an animal to pieces.

Salvadore, who was known locally as “Fat Nick”, had been a friend of one of Mrs Silva’s neighbours and had been staying with them in recent weeks.

The man is thought to have tried to attack this couple first but they managed to get out of their house without injury.

As people fled, Mrs Silva, described as a frail “sweet lady”, was caught in her garden and attacked.

...Locals claimed Salvadore had converted to Islam last year.

2 Ever notice mohammedans DON'T cut off heads in the U.S. and then dominate a busy intersection, boasting about the crime? That's because they know good and well some armed citizen will SHOOT them.

3 The length of the blade is so flexible in the british papers. They are trying so very very very hard to avoid the word "sword." Machete, large knife, arm's length, foot long, a big curved knife, but for gawdsake don't call it a scimitar or a sword.
that'd be racisss.

4 ...because if its terrorism, the government has to defend its its inability/unwillingness to prevent it. oh yeah, and if its terrorism, its just another plank in the bridge from the citizenry letting the government deal with it to the citizenry dealing with it themselves (see: vigilantism). there cant be that many of those planks left. once the self-preservation instinct on the part of the people is triggered and kicks in, all this pacifist, pc, leftist bs goes right the window and now the government will be in the tenuous position of prosecuting citizens that tried to cleanse their country of the enemies in their midst. good luck with that...

like it or not, agree with it or not, thats where all this is heading

7 Greetings:

For a fair while now, Robert Spencer (of Jihad Watch fame) has been pointing out the media's preference not to use the recently acquired Arabic names of Islamic converts. 'Cause, you know, messy.

8 I begin to see a bit of a pattern here. I think I agree that it is not terrorism. Terrorism, per se, is used to terrorize. This particular muslima saw a defenseless woman and decided, as have many others in his particular situation, that it would be cool to kill her. No other thought process was needed for him to grab his machete and cut off her head. Not to inspire terrorism, but just because he could. And since England has successfully disarmed their people, this will continue pretty much forever.

9 Looks like England has been completely lulled to sleep by the PC left. By the time they wake up, it is going to be too late!
