One man (maybe two?) and a knife in an area well covered with armed police hardly sounds like its planned by a terrorist organisation. The term terrorist is used very loosely these days, the decision to call it terrorist activity is a political decision not a criminal decision.

Erm, what would you call it then DD? Quote- Definition of a terrorist. A person who uses unlawful violence intimidation ,especially against civilians in the pursuit of political aims. One person or how ever many all cowardly terrorists in my book. More than likely shouting those words I won't say.

Terrorist incident suggests they already know something about the perpetrator...in contrast to it being say a mentally ill or doped up non terrorist. No witnesses saying he was shouting in Arabic. How would police know it was for political aims?
Sad day indeed.

Heartbreaking, condolences to all those involved, these people are most certainly terrorists, whether or not this incident was planned by a group or just one person is irrelevant, he or they are inspired by a religious ideology, a religion that appears to be so ambiguous that it can be interpreted to mean whatever its followers wish it to mean, eg: jihad, and until its religious leaders stand up and distance themselves from the extreme then this will continue, and I don't mean a few local headsheds ringing their hands but the the mainstay or whatever it may be deemed.

Sadly, all religions can be interpreted in that way. Even our good old Bible.

In one passage it says that its wrong to eat Halal Meat. In another it says that its a sin to waste food.

They were all in a state of shock later in the day after spending 5 hours in a secure environment with security forces like ants all over the place.

I'd like to know what intentions did one guy with a knife, hope to succeed had he gained entry to Westminster ? Not a lot, I shouldn't have thought and was there a bit of theatrical media ? smile

Maybe the empathy might be a bit stronger for others now, rather than the statuary 'very sorry' and 'condolences to family 'which is usually passed off without any true feelings of emotion.

It is a case of not being able to identify unless ones been hit with the same broom and I hope it doesn't happen again, but the protected now know a little more of how the ordinary man /woman/child might feel.
