Solidarity condemns as Islamophobic terrorism the murderous attack early this morning in Finsbury Park, London, targeted at Muslims leaving Ramadhan evening prayers, which has left one man dead and ten injured.
We grieve with the bereaved as we hope and pray for a quick recovery for the injured. Our hearts go out to all those affected and their families. We stand in solidarity with you all.
As with all terrorism, the victims were completely innocent.
We note the admirable restraint of the imam, Mohammed Mahmoud and others who protected the terrorist from a lynching by those present until police arrived to take the terrorist into custody.
We call on the government and law enforcement to vigorously prosecute not only those directly responsible, but also anyone seeking to exploit the situation to sow hatred and division.
It is clear that Britain is too tolerant of extremism when we consider the drivel spouted by individuals like Tommy Robinson, formerly of the EDL, who has threatened to set up militias to attack Muslim communities, Katie Hopkins who called for white men to rise up against Muslims to protect their children, Nigel Farage and all of UKIP and Theresa May, our PM, for her counterterrorism policies which labels all Muslims as potential extremists and terrorists. Each of these people should be locked up as extremists inciting racial hatred.
The BBC and other news outlets are now correctly describing the attack as terrorism but Solidarity notes that initial reports were reluctant to name the attack for what it is: racist terrorism.
Solidarity also condemns in the strongest possible terms the irresponsible gutter tabloid press, for inciting Islamophobia prior to today.
Pat Lee, co-convenor of Solidarity, said:
“I would emphasise that the actions of the white terrorist are the result of the increased Islamophobic rhetoric being bandied about by our politicians. Eg, the Prime Minister: “tolerance of Islamic extremism should not be accepted.”
“Statements from our elected representatives should be measured and factual. Where the vast, vast majority of Muslim members of our Communities condemn such acts, it is incumbent upon our politicians not to use rhetoric that inflames the situations our communities find themselves in.
I hope they will now reflect on their contribution to these incidents.”
