    you could say the same about Islam in general re: Islamist attacks. Like I said there is a wider argument that the DM isn't helpful here and you could make a similar one re: Islam too... you can also blame this attack on problems within 'islamophobia' and perhaps say that moderate 'islamophobes' (as you can't really say moderate 'white people' in this context when we're talking about an ideology) have a duty to report anyone who indicates they're going to commit a violent act

    but the real influence in the case of Islamic attacks is Islamists(ISIS etc..) and the real influence (assuming this is a far right racist attack) is likely some equivalent online stuff

    that isn't to say that the wider context should be ignored and that there isn't say a wider problem within Islam in the context of Islamic attacks or with right wing material/publications in the case of this one (again assuming it is a right wing guy not some mental zionist or some other explanation)

    He had just had the crap beaten out of him.

    I'm talking about a right wing terrorist. What word would you rather I use?.

    Cressida Dyck (surname deliberately misspelt to pass the naughty word machine) giving another one of her appallingly vacuous and waffling speeches again, is this the best the Met could find to front their activities? Totally uninspiring woman, who should go for some lessons in public address...

    Really? Where have you got that information from? Is mob justice alive and well in Finsbury now?

    Its a shame that most people dont see that violence breeds violence... its a shame in modern society we can't see past ethnicity, religion or nationality... it makes me worry for our future...

    I thought the people who detained the guy said they had hit him a few times. Think one even specifically said he punched him in the stomach. I have no source to back this up mind..

    He seemed to have been pinned down, didn't really look as though he had taken many, if any hits.

    The imam apparently shielded him from attackers

    The Guardian were reporting that he took a bit of a beating before the Imam stepped in and put an end to it.

    You've never been to a Muslim country if you think they didn't give him a hiding before the Iman stepped in.

    Fair play if they gave him a good kicking. I wouldn't have restrained myself in similar circumstances

    Just use the term terrorist. Doesn't matter where a terrorist falls on the political spectrum does it?

    Maybe I'm just being grouchy because I'm right wing?

    They were restrained. They got a couple of hits in before the Imam stopped them.

    To be fair if a mob had caught any of the recent Islamic extremists attackers I think they would have given them a beating too.

    Lucky we have a lot of moderate people who think with their brains in the country to make sure mob violence isn't a thing.
