    And it probably isn’t terrorism (per se) just your average, run of the mill activity in an area with a large muslim population. Banality of evil, as they say.

    • Watchman

      The difference between the terrorism and muslim ‘run of the mill activity’ can be infinitesimally small in many places and cases.

        At this point, he could have been screaming allahu akbar at the top of his lungs and the MSM would have warned us not to jump to conclusions because his motives were unknown and the community now lives in fear of ‘”the backlash” from us nazis.

      I disagree, it meets all the necessary requirements of terrorism. No screaming allah akbar does not make it less an act of terrorism.

    East London, East London – why would such a thing happen in East London, I wonder.

    • BillyHW

      I’m so sick and tired of this homegrown terrorism.

  • They’re already pushing ‘not terror related’ – but the article says nothing about that.

      As long as I live I shall never forgive the Swedenborgians for this.

      More packs of lone wolves?

      just a run of the mill “gang of men” ..

    Well, their mayor says you have to get used to it living in a big city, so get used to it.

    Who are the victims?
    If the report doesn’t say, you can assume that the victims are all native white British.
    If you can assume that first part, then it’s an easy guess to assume the assailants were Muslims, and statistically Pakistani.
    Once you make that connection then the assumption of jihad should be automatic.
    BTW, how come all acts of jihad are not AUTOMATICALLY qualified as religious hate crimes?
    When you think about it, they should be.

    ‘Getting stoned’ and ‘dropping acid’ is alot different in Islam for some reason.

  • Drunk by Noon ✓

    It’s Muslims.
    No description of the perpetrators in the story, just the number of them.
    Uh, huh.
    “Not accepting comments”
    Alrighty then!

    That’s all the confirmation you need as a rational news consumer that Muslims perpetrated this attack.

  • CoolTolerance

    Stay out of Greater-London-Area. Just plain too dangerous.
    How to destroy a great metropolis? Bring in people from the third world (all Muslims, btw).

      every week a new attack has got to be dealt with ..

    I know its Muslims. Of course, I have no proof and there is a chance it could not be Muslims. However, I know it must be the same way I know the bright light coming in my window in the morning is probably the Sun. Am I a Bigot or a Realist?

    “Witnesses claimed the substance was thrown by ‘young black teenage males’ after an argument broke out. ”

    Maybe it is some sort of muslim-style gang warfare.

  • Here is a great comment, gleaned on INN, by someone called Never Again:

    “What are the British people doing to upset the members of the religion of peace
    We counsel restraint on both sides. Maybe if the British people don’t scream so
    loud when acid hits their face, then the Muslims will use less corrosive acid. This
    good faith by both sides may jump start the stalled peace process. If the screams don’t stop, this will upset the freedom fighters, and the cycle of violence will
    continue. There is no military solution, only a diplomatic solution. You need to
    negotiate with your enemy, you don’t make peace with your friends.”

    • BillyHW

      When will this cycle of violence end?

      • Lol. Yes, “cycle of violence”! These poor Muslims feel lousy so they hit out, and then the police get them, so they feel even lousier, and the police make them suffer again, etc. When, oh when, will it end?

  • This is part of the new normal.

    • BillyHW

      We need some acid control. A national acid registry.
