There is no rational reason for the murderous attack in London on March 22, 2017. The perpetrators know that violence will not change the local government or UK society. Four people died including the assailant, and 40 others injured. Terrorism will never defeat British values of democracy and freedom. Such behaviour is irrefutable evidence of the raw hate and pointless lashing out from Islam. Canada’s similar attack on our Parliament Hill arose from Islamist fanaticism. ISIS claimed responsibility. The attack took place on the first anniversary of the Islamic attack in Brussels which took 32 lives. We may feel helpless, yet in another way, we all can take action, by denouncing Islam in all its forms in our local sphere of influence. There has been enough death and mayhem since 632 AD throughout the world, to conclude that Islam has no social redeeming value. The millions that have been enslaved, murdered, and culturally squashed by this political-religious ideology, speaks for itself for what it is. From the fruit, one understands the true nature of tree. In our sense of powerlessness, we can responsibly respond, by showing courage to denounce Islam anywhere and everywhere. PF
Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on the attack in London, United Kingdom
March 22, 2017 Ottawa, Ontario
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the attack in London, United Kingdom (U.K.):
“We strongly condemn today’s attack in London. I was shocked and saddened to learn of the innocent people who were killed and injured as a result of this cowardly attack.
“Canada and the U.K. are the closest of friends and allies. Our friendship is based on shared values and history – indeed, Canada’s Parliament is a descendant of the Chamber targeted this morning.
“Today’s attack on the U.K. Parliament is an attack on democracies around the world.
“The Canadian Parliament withstood a similar attack not so long ago by those who sought to instil fear and divide Canadians against themselves. Instead, Canadians came together. I am confident the British people will do the same, and will emerge from their grief stronger and more united than ever before.
“On behalf of all Canadians, I offer our full support to Prime Minister May and to the people of the United Kingdom. We stand ready to offer all possible assistance to the British government, to do what we can to bring to justice those responsible for this heinous act.
“Canadians stand united with the British people in the fight against terrorism. We will continue to work together with the U.K. and all our allies to show the world that freedom and democracy will always triumph.”
