Just days after a horrific terrorist attack in London left 8 innocent individuals dead, the city is yet again under a state of panic after a nursery worker was stabbed by three people shouting “Allah.”
London has experienced multiple terrorist attacks over the past year, and its citizens are in a constant state of fear over the lackluster effort by the government to stamp out radical Islamic terrorism.

From Daily Mail:
The woman, in her 30s, was dragged to the ground from behind by attackers in Hermon Hill, Wanstead and slashed in the arm as they chanted “Allah”. She has been taken to hospital with a “slash wound” and in the last few moments Metropolitan Police have confirmed the stabbing.
Detectives say the victim’s injuries are not thought to be life threatening, but that they are still looking for the three woman who fled the scene before cops arrived. A colleague of the victim, who does not want to be named, said the victim had “three Asian girls dressed in black behind her chanting the Koran, ‘Allah”‘.
She added: “They pulled her to the ground, punched her, kicked her. One of them pulled out a knife and cut her arm from her wrist to her elbow. “The police turned up, the ambulance cleaned her wounds up.” Asked about her colleague’s condition, she added: “She’s okay, considering. Obviously it’s a shock, she’s in shock. She was in tears and she had a cut right up her arm.
“Her stomach was hurting, she had marks all over her, her hair was pulled out.” The Met Police is not treating the incident, which happened at 9.30am this morning, as a terror attack. They said in a statement: “The suspects fled the scene prior to police arrival in an unknown direction. “No arrests have been made. Enquiries continue. “The Met’s Counter Terrorism Command has been made aware of the incident but is not investigating at this time.”
One has to wonder why authorities are not treating this incident as terrorism given that the women who attacked the civilian were heard yelling “Allah” a chant that past terrorists have shouted prior to their attacks.
Because the attackers do not know the identities of the attackers, this might explain why terrorism is not being considered as a motivation for the stabbing. This attack should worry all citizens of England, as they could potentially be the victim of a random attack at any time of day.
Do you find it strange that authorities are not considering this attack terrorism? Do you think it is terrorism? Share your thoughts below!
