TERROR ATTACK ON THE LONDON TUBE …
NBC News is reporting that there has been a terrorist attack on the London subway as a device was triggered on a rush-hour subway train. The terror attack took place at the Parsons Green Underground station in west London around 8.20am local time. The improvised explosive device was detonated on a London Underground train on Friday morning, injuring 22 people in what police say was a terrorist incident. Thankfully, there have been no confirmed fatalities.
A device that triggered a rush-hour fire aboard a subway train in the British capital was being investigated as terrorism Friday, police said.
Authorities confirmed 22 people had been injured at Parsons Green Tube station in southwest London. None of their wounds — mostly superficial burns — were considered serious or life-threatening.
Investigators were examining the remains of an improvised explosive device.
Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the senior national coordinator for counterterrorism policing, said the blaze was being treated as a “terrorist incident.”
Police said no arrests had been made but would not comment on the manhunt for the culprit. London subway stations are well-equipped with surveillance cameras.
Citing two intelligence officials briefed on the incident, NBC News Investigations reported that U.K. authorities were trying to ensure there were no additional devices. The officials added that authorities believe the contents of the 5-gallon bucket detonated prematurely. It did not explode — but instead “flashed” and burned. The device was left next to one of the subway car’s doors.

JUST CURIOUS, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE WHETHER YOU WEAR A WHITE SHEET OR A BLACK MASK, YOU’RE BOTH JUST AS BAD … HOWEVER, ANTIFA MAYBE WORSE …
So this is the insanity that we deal with today. If you don’t agree with Antifa, you are a Nazi sympathizer. Really? How about a pox on both their houses. But with the thugs from Antifa that is not an option. These are the Marxists who President Donald Trump condemned from Charlottesville and took so much flack over from the LEFT, Democrats and the MSM. As usual, it turns out President Trump was correct. Finally some Democrats, alittle late to the game, are calling out Antifa for their disgusting acts of violence. Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has finally condemned Antifa after Berkeley. Better late than never I guess. Antifa is nothing more than a domestic terror group, no better than the KKK or the so-called Fascists they rail against. Watch the video below and ask yourself, who is the Fascist? Patriot Prayer’s founder, Joey Gibson found himself in the middle of Antifa hate … “A Beating in Berkeley.”
As white supremacists go, Joey Gibson makes for a lousy one. For starters, he’s half Japanese. “I don’t feel like I’m Caucasian at all,” he says. Not to be a stickler for the rules, but this kind of talk could get you sent to Master Race remedial school.
And it gets worse. The founder of Patriot Prayer—a Vancouver, Wash.-based operation that sponsors rallies and marches promoting freedom and First Amendment rights along with all-purpose unity—also spews hippie-dippie rhetoric like “moderates have to come together” and “love and peace [are] the only way to heal this country.” Joey tends to sound less like an alt-right bully boy than a conflict-resolution facilitator or a Unitarian Sunday school teacher.
For his late August “Liberty Weekend” in the Bay Area, which was to include a free speech rally in San Francisco followed by a “No to Marxism” rally in Berkeley (headed by a local “transsexual patriot”), Joey advertised that “no extremists will be allowed in. No Nazis, Communists, KKK, Antifa, white supremacists .??.??. or white nationalists.” (So much for free speech.) Likewise, the advertised docket of speakers was to include “three blacks, two Hispanics, one Asian, one Samoan, one Muslim, two women, and one white male.” If becoming a liberty movement fixture doesn’t work out for Gibson, he has a promising future as a UC Berkeley admissions officer.
Despite all this, you’d have thought from the avalanche of alarmist walk-up stories that Gibson and friends would be dancing in a “Springtime for Hitler” kick line. Donald Trump, of course, who draws frequent Hitler comparisons in some quarters, has already set nerves on edge with his nativist rhetoric, perpetually divisive style, and what’s widely perceived as his winks ’n’ nods to white nationalists. But in the wake of the recent white supremacist hoedown in Charlottesville—a cesspool of racial hatred that resulted in the death of anti-racism activist Heather Heyer when a Nazi fanboy drove his Dodge Challenger into her and 19 others—opportunistic leftists/Democrats have been on the prowl to paint everyone to the right of Angela Davis as a dangerous racist lunatic.
SPANISH POLICE THWART ANOTHER TERRORIST VAN ATTACK IN SPAIN …
Reuters is reporting that Spanish police have killed five would-be terrorist attackers after confronting them early on Friday in a town south of Barcelona. Just hours earlier Islamic terrorists drove a van into crowds of people killing 14 and severely injuring hundreds. According to reports, the five men attempted to drive into tourists on the Cambrils seafront. Their vehicle overturned and some of these terrorists got out of the vehicle and began stabbing people. Thankfully, four were shot dead at the scene and the fifth was killed a few hundred meters away by police. Obviously, this attempted terror attack in Cambrils is connected to the one that occurred earlier in the day in Barcelona.
Spanish police shot dead five would-be attackers after confronting them early on Friday in a town south of Barcelona where hours earlier a suspected Islamist militant drove a van into crowds, killing 13 people and wounding scores of others.
Islamic State said the perpetrators had been responding to its call for action by carrying out Thursday’s rampage along Barcelona’s most famous avenue, which was thronged with tourists enjoying an afternoon stroll at the peak of the summer season.
Bodies, many motionless, were left strewn across the avenue and authorities said the toll of dead, which included several children, could rise, with more than 100 injured.
Hours later in the early hours of Friday, as security forces hunted for the van’s driver, police said they killed five suspects in Cambrils, 120 km (75 miles) south along the coast from Barcelona, to thwart a separate attack.
The five men attempted to drive into tourists on the Cambrils seafront, police said. Their car overturned and some of them began stabbing people. Four were shot dead at the scene and the fifth was killed a few hundred meters away, police said.
Police said they had arrested a Moroccan and a man from Spain’s north African enclave of Melilla, though neither was the driver of the van. He was seen escaping on foot and was still at large. A third man was arrested in the town of Ripoll on Friday.
Spain Terror Attacks in Barcelona: Van Plows Through Crowded Tourist Area,13 Killed and 100 Injured (VIDEO)
TERROR ATTACK IN SPAIN …
Dozens of people are reportedly injured and dead after a van slammed into the crowded Las Ramblas tourist hotspot in Barcelona, Spain. It is being reported that 13 people have been killed an up to 100 injured in the terror attack. A white van drove through crowd of people swerving from side to side purposely trying to mow down as many individuals as possible. ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the attack. From what it appears, this was not a lone wolf terror attack, it was perpetrated by a terror cell. Sadly, the death toll has risen to 14.
Barcelona Terror Attack: 13 Dead, Dozens Injured – NBC Nightly News
A manhunt was underway for the driver of a van that mowed through crowds of tourists on Barcelona’s most famous avenue on Thursday, killing at least 13 people in an attack that was claimed by Islamic State.
Authorities said the death toll could rise, with more than 100 people injured, some seriously.
Police said they arrested two men, a Moroccan and a man from Spain’s north African enclave of Melilla, though neither was the driver. Witnesses said the driver fled on foot.
It was still not clear how many attackers had been involved.
Hours beforehand, one person was killed in an explosion in a house in a town southwest of Barcelona, in an incident linked to the attack, police added. Residents of the house were preparing explosives, a police source said.
As the manhunt continued into the night, police said several attackers were killed in a shootout during an operation against what they called a possible “terror attack” in Cambrils, another town south of Barcelona.
Earlier in Barcelona, witnesses said the white van zigzagged at high speed down Las Ramblas, a busy avenue thronged with tourists, ramming pedestrians and cyclists, sending some hurtling through the air and leaving bodies strewn in its wake.
Following a deadly vehicle-ramming attack in Barcelona Thursday afternoon — which left at least 13 people killed — a police operation was carried out 90 minutes south of the city in Cambrilla, during which five “terrorists” were killed, officials said.
Police said the operation was in response to a “possible terrorist attack.”
Five “terrorists” were killed in the operation, but initially officials said four people were injured and one person was wounded and detained.
On Twitter, police said they “have killed the alleged perpetrators.” Catalan police told ABC News that they believe the incident in Cambrils is related to the attack in Barcelona earlier Thursday.
Authorities confirmed early Friday morning, the explosive belts carried by the alleged terrorists, were fake.
“We work on the hypothesis that the terrorists killed in Cambrils would be related to the events in Barcelona and Alcanar,” police said. Alcanar is the location of the earlier deadly house explosion that police said was believed to be connected to the Barcelona plot.

YUP, HUG A TERRORIST AND HAVE YOUR HEAD CUT OFF … TALK ABOUT NOT UNDERSTANDING THE ENEMY.
Unreal, this is what the media actually thinks would work in deterring terrorism? Dateline, which airs on SBS, takes a look at whether terrorism can be stopped by “hugging a jihadi.” The program is run by police in Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus, that offers radicalized Islam youths and adults a way out and the chance to reintegrate into society. What makes anyone think they want a way out? The misguided individuals behind this actually think that kindness can prevent terrorism. This might work on one offs, like what this program probably shows, but as a way of preventing terrorism widespread across the world, not a chance. Next up a look at antelopes on the Africa plains making nice with those animals that refer to them as dinner with “Hug a Leopard”. Because we all know they don’t change their spots either.
Sorry, but Western Europe has so lost their way when it comes to terrorism, its frightening. Just how misguided and passive has Europe become?
JAMAL was an angry young man on the verge of going to Syria to take up the jihad fight when he got a phone call which changed his life forever.
The teenager had aggressively defended Islam during a high school debate and soon found himself in front of police, even though he hadn’t technically broken any law.
The incident left him feeling marginalized and he began spending more and more time at his local mosque. He became so angry with society that he almost became a terrorist.
We would ask the below wearing orange suits their oping about “hug a jihadi” but they have been beheaded and are dead!
“In my mind I was like, ‘they treated me as a terrorist. If they want a terrorist, they will get a terrorist’,” he told Dateline reporter Evan Williams.
It wasn’t until a policeman called to apologize for how he was treated, and encouraged him to join a mentoring program, that his views began to soften.
The controversial program dubbed Hug a Jihadi may sound like a strange concept at first.
