Senior Whitehall sources have told the BBC that the Woolwich attackers are thought to have tried to film their attack whilst shouting "Allahu Akbar" - God is Great, says political editor Nick Robinson.
The Prime Minister is expected to speak to the Home Secretary at 18:15 BST from a train to Paris about what is now being treated by government as a suspected terrorist attack, Mr Robinson says.'If this is true then can anyone seriously doubt that this was an Islamic terrorist attack?
Presumably the cause will excused as being because of the British Army being in Afghanistan or due to the creation of the State of Israel.
However the real cause looks like Jihad.
ITV news are reporting:I await the BBC's reporting of this news...
'ITV News has obtained footage of a man with bloodied hands and carrying knives speaking into a camera in Woolwich.
He made a series of political statements.
"We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you," he said.'
ITV News are now reporting:
'ITV News has obtained footage of a man with bloodied hands addressing a camera on a south London street.That ITV link has the video footage but the page seems to have problems, too much traffic?
He makes a series of political statements before walking towards a man, believed to be a soldier, lying prone on the street.
He then talks calmly to another man stood nearby.'
Could someone please correct the BBC, 'Allahu Akbar' does not translate as 'God is great' but is called Takbir in Arabic and means 'God is greater' or 'God is greatest'. It's also a cry that readers of this blog may have come across before.
