Van Hits Ten Muslim Men In Front of Finsbury Park Mosque (Attacker Identified: Darren Osborne)

There are reports of a rented van crashing into 10 Muslim men outside the mosque.

A van has reportedly ploughed into a group of pedestrians outside a mosque in north London, leaving numerous casualties.

It is believed the group of around ten Muslim men were run over at the renowned Finsbury Park Mosque, in Seven Sisters Road, just after midnight.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing bystanders wrestle the suspect to the floor and pin him down until officers.

Update: More details coming in.

The Finsbury Park attacker is identified as Darren Osborne.

The man suspected of using a van to attack worshipers at a London mosque has been identified as 47-year-old Darren Osborne, a father-of-four from Cardiff, Wales. Police have confirmed that he will be charged with the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism and attempted murder.

Osborne's neighbor, 52-year-old Dave Ashford, told the Guardian he was shocked to discover that Osborne was suspected of being behind the attack...

“Someone called me and said it was him and I said ‘It can’t be’. Then I saw the picture on the news and said, 'it’s him."
As RT reports, one person died and 10 others were injured in the incident, which British Prime Minister Theresa May has called "sickening," and London's mayor has described as a "horrific terrorist attack."
Thanks to Zerohedge.

An update on Osborne here from RT 06/20/17.

The family of Osborne said he was beset by mental problems and had never expressed extremist views. He is alleged, however, to have expressed increasingly antagonistic views towards Muslims in the weeks since the London Bridge attack.

...There is no immediate evidence that Osborne was an active member of a far-right organization. He was not known to security services, according to Ben Wallace, the security minister.

...His neighbor Khadijeh Sherizi, who described herself as a white Muslim, said she could not believe Osborne was being investigated for carrying out an attack on Muslim worshippers. Sherazi told the Guardian she had never had any problems with Osborne or his family until this weekend, when he called her son an “inbred.”

...Over the weekend, Osborne had also reportedly been thrown out of a local pub for getting drunk, “cursing Muslims and saying he would do some damage.”

...Osborne was born in Singapore but grew up in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, where he attended Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College.

Also if you read further it appears he was quite a fish, even leading to reports that he has split with his wife and was living in a tent.

So it appears that what happened was he was upset about the London bridge attack to start with, went on a bender and attacked Finsbury in a drunken revenge.

If you look at a lot of copies of the videos he appears to be drunk even waving after being placed in the police van.

So the lesson? Terrorism begets terrorism. This IS the blowback we've been looking for. I'm not optimistic about this either, we've reached a tipping point where terrorism has become so normalized we'll see it happening all over from all sorts of angles.

The pooch is screwed, I repeat the pooch is screwed.

2 Have to wonder if either the driver was just drunk or if it's another your the wrong sect of muslim thing again. The whole middle east is still hashing that one out after how many centuries?

3 Seeing on Fox/Sky News claims that there were 3 people in the van and 2 ran off after the crash. Also seeing a report that one person got stabbed after the crash.

8 Was this one of those "incidents" (like the London Bridge and Westminster Bridge "incidents") that are "part and parcel of living in a big city", as Mayor Khan quipped, or is this actually a "horrific terrorist attack"?

9 Oh, by the way, the FNM is positively giddy that, after 17 years of unrelenting Islamic terrorism, they finally have their feared "anti-Muslim backlash". Condemnation of any and all anti-moslem sentiments, even mild concern, as "islamophobia" in 5... 4... 3...

Oh, wait. They've done that for years, already.

hipocracy much??

11 I was going to say similar -- THIS non-muslim person is INSTANTLY labeleed a 'terrorist' by the brit gov, when numerous other muslims terrorists are not labeled so when obviously much more violent and premeditated.

Consider that we are only seeing the start of this barbarity and that prudence dictates that saner Americans go armed to their churches and synagogues (and whatnot), because of the expanding threat not just from murderous musselman, but also from empowered leftists.
