ISIS Claims Responsibility For The London Terrorist Attack By Khalid Masood That Occurred Outside Houses Of Parliament In Westminster
March 23. 2017
Today, terrorist group ISIS claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack that occurred in London's Westminster, outside the Houses of Parliament, which left 5 people dead and 40 injured (Terrorist Attack At The British Parliament In London's Palace Of Westminster Leaves 5 Dead And 40 Injured). ISIS referred to the terrorist, 52-year-old British born Muslim, Khalid Masood as, "A soldier of the Islamic State." Police have raided the apartment building Masood lived in, arresting three people.
British Prime Minister, Theresa May, stated of the terrorist, "The man was British-born and some years ago was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns of violent extremist. He was a peripheral figure. His case was historic, He was not part of the current intelligence picture."
The official death count regarding the victims had been revised to three people, who are British police officer and married father of three Keith Palmer, 54-year-old husband, father and owner of a music recording business, Kurt Cochran (American) and school teacher and married mother of two, Aysha Frade (British). However, another victim died today, after being taken off life support. The terrorist, who was killed on the scene to stop his murderous behavior is, Khalid Masood. 40 people from 11 countries were injured in the attack.
There really is not much authorities can do regarding preventing a deranged person from deciding to mow down innocent pedestrians in acts of vehicular assault and manslaughter. However, I will state this again, security needs to be tightened at Westminster. The terrorist did not get into the building, which is a positive. However, he was able to kill an officer guarding it.
Police outside Parliament
Unauthorized people should not be able to walk near personnel without going through a metal detector. Once again, there should be snipers on the roof. Previously, there was a security breach regarding a member of the public gaining access to the roof of Westminster. Police/military snipers should be there instead, as elevated positions give a great and stealth vantage point of activities occurring below.
I have passed the Houses of Parliament many times during walks for exercise and couldn't begin to tell you how to get in the building, as I do not know. The building was clearly scoped out by Masood and those directing him, who developed a sick plan to run over innocent pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, then kill people in Parliament. The latter part of the plan failed, as police stopped him from entering the building with two knives.
Masood's crashed rented car he used to kill innocent pedestrians on Westminster Bridge
Masood's attempt to breach the building's security was disrupted by unarmed police officer, Keith Palmer, who was stabbed to death, as the terrorist tried to force his way into the Houses of Parliament on foot, using brute force, with the intent to kill as many people as he could (much like the method used by terrorists in the Charlie Hebdo killings in France: 12 People Killed In Paris During Terror Attack At Magazine Over Drawings Of The Islamic Figure Muhammad Which The Site Warned Against A Week Ago).
As stated in the column last night, the method of terror used in the attack on the Houses of Parliament, is similar to what occurred in Nice, France. In that instance of cold-blooded vehicular manslaughter, the murderous terrorist who perpetrated the attack, Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, mysteriously wired £84,000 to his family, right before he committed the cruel act. His brother stated he worked as a chauffer in France for 8-years and saved the sum, which does not sound correct, as he would have to pay living expenses out of his wages. Most people who work as drivers cannot save £84,000 in 8-years and pay their living expenses (rent, utilities, travel costs and food).

Was born in Kent but recently lived in the West Midlands

London terror attack victim named as Aysha Frade as it emerges British-born Wesminster attacker was ‘known to MI5’

THIS is the mum-of-two teacher mowed down and killed by a British-born lone wolf
extremist who ploughed into crowds on Westminster Bridge – as it is revealed he
was previously investigated for violent extremism. Aysha Frade, 43, is believed
to have been picking up her children from school when she was killed in the
deadly terror attack, which saw a maniac mow down pedestrians in a 4×4 before
stabbing a policeman to death.
Spanish papers said Aysha was born in Britain and had a Portuguese husband called John Frade. Tributes have been paid to the teacher, who worked at nearby sixth form DLD College, just a few hundred metres from Westminster Bridge. It is believed she was hit by the attacker's car and thrown under a bus in yesterday's atrocity.
Principal Rachel said: "We are all deeply shocked and saddened at the news that one of the victims yesterday was a member of our staff, Aysha Frade. "All our thoughts and our deepest sympathies are with her family. "We will be offering every support we can to them as they try to come to terms with their devastating loss. "Aysha worked as a member of our administration team at the college. "She was highly regarded and loved by our students and by her colleagues. "She will be deeply missed by all of us."...
