Islamic State channels celebrating the news about a van driving into people outside a welfare house near the Finsbury Park Mosque reacted after learning the white, male driver, Darren Osborne, 47, may not be Muslim.

The ISIS channels remind Muslims that “the war is starting now.”

Prior to the news that driver was not Muslim, ISIS channels looked like this:

The attack happened near Seven Sisters Road right after 12:20 a.m. According to reports, people were leaving the welfare house when a driver crashed into them. Footage of the scene shows people motionless on the street as Muslims dressed in white clothing surround a white man, believed to be the driver.

According to new reports, police are calling the incident a terror attack. According to The Guardian, “A man died on the scene but was already receiving first aid from members of the public when the attack took place, police said. It is not yet known whether his death was a result of the attack.” 8 others are injured, 2 seriously.

In a video filmed after the attack, Osborne is led away by the police and seems to grapple with them before they shove him off-camera. According to the Muslim Council of Britain, the incident actually occurred outside the Muslim Welfare House, not the mosque proper.

The Muslims had been taking part in Ramadan services. Some witnesses claim that the victims were Muslims taking part in Tarawih, extra prayers performed by Sunni Muslims at night during the the month of Ramadan. The Muslim Council of Britain has said that their “prayers are with the victims.”

Al Qaeda operatives attended Finsbury Park Mosque, reports The Independent. Abu Hamza al-Masri was its former imam and was a preacher of militant Islamism.

The BBC writes about the mosque, “Finsbury Park Mosque has long been synonymous with the worst fears about Islamist extremism in Britain. The mosque’s new leadership have been struggling to reclaim it for the local community” following the arrest of al-Masri in 2006. al-Masri is serving a life sentence at an American federal supermax prison in Colorado.

So how do you report what ISIS is saying to the muslims of London and yet not catch them … rather than showing images of the attack the attention is being diverted to what is being said apparently by ISIS… and also the man accidentally lost control of the van ? Yeh right and hen acoxdnelty screamed I want to kill all Muslims ? Please get your facts and news right and stop spreading racism and hatred

acoxdnelty? Muslims are responsible for virtually all terrorist attacks. It’s just easier to assume they are all muslim extremists. I’d be more likely to believe they converted some dude to do the attack who wouldn’t look muslim to further their infilitration in taking over the world. Muslims and Nazi’s have a ton in common, but everyone seems to want to look the other way with muslims.
