    It is quite possible that it was ISIS. As they usually do the same terrible crap against muslims. (Although this only really occurs in the middle east, not in Western Europe).

    As usual, some of the responses in this thread are absolutely disgusting. There is NO justification for any sort of attack like this on any person committed by any person of any colour, creed or background. It is an act of terror not only against innocent people leaving their place of worship, but against the accepting and tolerant values of our society.

    I’m disgusted and upset by this terrible event.
    Should we not wait for it to be confirmed it's a terrorist attack? It probably is but the police haven't confirmed it yet as far as I'm aware

    Seems like a revenge attack as he used a vehicle like Islamic extremists used. An eye for an eye makes the world go blind. I know people are angry at Islamic terrorism but using the same tactic to attack Muslims is disgusting and pathetic.

    The government called it a potential terror attack hours ago.

    What else could it be? Cut the nonsense, man.

    Well as somebody pointed out there are claims he was drunk.

    Potential terror attack, for someone who normally says wait until it's confirmed and stop the speculation you seem to have flipped on this one.

    If you actually read articles about the terrorist attack you would know it has been confirmed that he is white as there was a video of him being taken into custody.

    this attack is a huge success for ISIS (even if of course they most likely have nothing to do with it) : it is the main hope of ISIS (and of Islamist radicals in general) that tit-for-tat attacks take place in Europe, so that communities draw further apart, and the radicals can claim the high ground as defenders of their community from "persecution"

    we should bear in mind the experience in Northern Ireland, where years of tit-for-tat violence gave the terrorists prestige and power

    race has nothing to do with this : it is disingenuous to try and racialise everything (as if there were not lots of Western Europeans in ISIS, by the way)

    Yes, this is definitely the kind of reaction that the Jihadis want - they hope that the next step will be further Islamist terror attacks and a big crackdown by the authorities on law abiding Muslims. They are seeking a global move towards extremism and away from moderation.

    The far right hope to cash in on the anger and they don't care any more about the fate of ordinary citizens in this country that the bizarre religious extremists in IS do - they want to create chaotic conditions within which they can seize power.

    White alone does not make this a terrorist attack. As some Muslims are white, it will be his intent that will prove this.
