In the melee that ensued after two crazed, cleaver wielding men butchered a soldier in the streets of London on the 22nd of May, a woman walked to the dead or dying soldier, tried to comfort him and confronted the perpetrator of the crime. Today, that beautiful, courageous woman’s identity is unveiled. Lets face it folks, in Nigeria, both men would themselves have been given a hurried send forth to their maker by lynch mobs. I watched that video and the guy who was making all those pronouncements and ‘apologizing’ to women had his hands so covered in blood they looked like he was wearing red gloves. Read more on what actually took place.
‘You are going to lose, what would you like to do?’ she told maniacs just before they were gunned down by police
BY BILL HUTCHINSON / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
A British soldier was hacked to death Wednesday on a busy London street by a pair of self-proclaimed jihadists wielding knives, cleavers and guns — and ranting about avenging the killing of Muslims.
Several witnesses said the victim was beheaded.
The barbaric slaying unfolded in front of stunned witnesses who said the attackers screamed “Allahu Akbar,” meaning “God is Great” in Arabic, as they wickedly butchered the victim.
The killers slaughtered the soldier, believed to be about 20, after mowing him down with their car on the sidewalk at about 2:20 p.m. The attackers’ blue Vauxhall Tigra crashed into a pole.
“We want to start a war in London tonight!” one killer in a tan coat and brandishing a long butcher knife yelled after the attack.
Police shot and wounded the pair after they refused to drop their weapons.
Outrage swiftly swept the city. Two men were arrested in attacks at mosques in the London suburbs of Kent and Braintree, and up to 200 people engaged in skirmishes with police near the murder scene. Many wore ski masks emblazoned with “EDL,” for English Defense League, a right-wing group.
The soldier’s name was not released. But officials said he was returning to the Royal Artillery Barracks in the southeast London neighborhood of Woolwich after completing duty in the central part of the city.
Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, 48, a Cub Scout leader, was so incensed that she dared to confront one of the terrorists, getting in his face — despite the fact he was brandishing a long butcher knife.
“I asked him if he did it, and he said ‘yes,’ and I said, ‘Why?’ ” Loyau-Kennett told The Daily Telegraph of London.
The man told her: “I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan.”
“I said, ‘Right now it is only you versus many people. You are going to lose. What would you like to do?’ ” Loyau-Kennett said.
“He said, ‘I would like to stay and fight.’ ”
The maniacs posed for photos and boasted of their sickening ambush as they waited up to 20 minutes for police to arrive, witnesses said.
“We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you,” one attacker, wearing a black watchcap and holding a bloody cleaver and knife in his left hand, told a passerby filming him with a cell phone camera. “The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for tooth.”
With his hands soaked in blood, he was filmed on the street right after the attack and made a chilling claim of responsibility. As sirens blared and police cars raced toward the scene, the talkative suspect, who spoke with a distinctive London accent, apologized to women who witnessed the murder.
“But in our land, our women have to see the same thing,” he said, without elaborating on where he was from.
“You people will never be safe. Remove your government. They don’t care about you,” he said. “You think (British Prime Minister) David Cameron is going to get caught in the street? When we start bustin’ our guns, do you think the politicians are going to die? No, it’s going to be the average guy, like you, and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so you can all live in peace.”
As the man spoke, the dead soldier lay splayed in the street behind him.
One of the attackers was stopped or arrested last year while on his way to join terrorist group al-Shabaab in Somalia, the BBC reported.
Pedestrians looked on with a combination of horror and indifference. One woman wheeling a shopping cart behind her didn’t break stride as she walked within inches of the chatty jihadi while staring at the victim.
Loyau-Kennett said she was on a bus passing the gruesome scene. She jumped off the coach when she saw the victim lying in the street.
“Being a Cub leader, I have my first aid, so when I saw this guy on the floor I thought it was an accident. Then I saw the guy was dead and I could not feel a pulse,” Loyau-Kennett said.
“When I went up, there was this black guy with a revolver and a kitchen knife. He had what looked like butcher’s tools and he had a little ax, to cut the bones, and two large knives and he said, ‘Move off the body,’ ” she said. “So I thought, ‘Okay, I don’t know what is going on here,’ and he was covered with blood. I thought I had better start talking to him before he starts attacking somebody else.”
Loyau-Kennett said the man she confronted did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The vengeful pair apparently set out to kill a soldier, staking out the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich and randomly targeting their victim.
Witnesses said the soldier was wearing a T-shirt reading “Help our Heroes” — a British military charity — when he was ambushed about 200 yards from the barracks.
Cops swarmed the area and jumped out of their cars with guns drawn.
Both suspects were shot after charging police. They were taken to a hospital, one in serious condition.
“They were hacking at this poor guy. We thought they were trying to remove organs from his body in the middle of the road,” a witness, who would only give his name as James, told LBC radio.
Getting word of the attack in Paris, Cameron cut short his visit with French President François Hollande to return to London.
“There are strong indications that it is a terrorist incident,” Cameron said.
He ordered Home Secretary Theresa May to call an emergency meeting of top government security officials in the Cabinet Office Briefing Room in the bowels of 10 Downing St. “Despicable acts like these will not go unpunished,” Cameron said.
The crime sent shock waves across the Atlantic, prompting the NYPD out of an abundance of caution to beef up security around the British consulate on Third Ave. and E. 51st St.
The NYPD has had at least one detective assigned to Scotland Yard since 2004. A detective stationed there now has briefed superiors in the intelligence division, police officials said.
