Clutching a bloodied meat cleaver, the man suspected of executing a soldier on a crowded street declared: ‘you and your kids will be next’.
In a chilling rant captured on camera, the knife-wielding man declared: ‘The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers.’
The man who launched the terrifying diatribe in Woolwich, south-east London, is believed to be Michael Adebolajo, who has been identified on Twitter and web forums as one of the two people arrested.
In the video obtained by ITV News he added: ‘Remove your governments – they don’t care about you. You think David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start bursting our guns? You think politicians are going to die?

Police are today believed to be searching addresses that Adebolajo, known by the Muslim name Mujahid, is linked to in Romford, Essex.
They also carried out raids in Lincolnshire and Greenwich, south east London.

In broad daylight, an attacker and an accomplice repeatedly stabbed and tried to behead the man in front of dozens of passers-by.
‘AN EYE FOR AN EYE’: FULL RANT OF MAN WITH BLOOD ON HIS HANDS
The man with blood on his hands said ‘you people will never be safe’ as he launched an incredible rant.
In the video footage, obtained by ITV News, he said: ‘We swear by the almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone.
‘We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
‘I apologise that women have had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your government, they don’t care about you.’
‘Do you think David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start bussin’ our guns? You think politicians are going to die?
‘No it’s going to be the average guy, like you, and your children.
‘So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so you can all live in peace.’
After the attack, speaking in a clear south London accent, the man named as Adebolajo said: ‘You people will never be safe. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.’
Throughout the frenzied attack the two killers shouted ‘Allah Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is great’ – then demanded horrified witnesses film them as they ranted over the crumpled body.
The two black men in their 20s, waited calmly for armed police to arrive before charging at officers brandishing a rusty revolver, knives and meat cleavers.
When the old pistol was shot towards police it backfired and blew the thumb off one of the men.
Moments later they were cut down in a hail of bullets believed to be fired by a woman marksman. Last night both men were being treated in hospital for their wounds and will face questioning.
Mother-of-two Ingrid Loyau-Kennett bravely remonstrated with one of the killers in the aftermath of the terror attack.
After pleading with them to hand her the weapons, one told her: ‘We want to start a war in London tonight’.
She replied: ‘Right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose’.
Ms Loyau-Kennett said she was not trained in any way to deal with the situation – she used to be a teacher.

Yesterday’s slaughter took place close to a primary school at 2.20pm. Witnesses told how the men drove a dark blue Vauxhall Tigra on to the pavement.
The soldier was wearing a t-shirt with the army charity Help for Heroes logo on it and was carrying a military issue rucksack. The men then leapt out of their car and ‘hacked and chopped’ at their victim before dragging his bloodied body into the middle of the road.
Last night both men were placed under arrest after being treated for gunshot wounds under armed guard in separate hospitals.
Today Prime Minister David Cameron said the murder of a ‘brave soldier’ on the streets of London will bring the UK together and ‘make us stronger’.

Hoodie: A Help for Heroes top like the one the murdered soldier was wearing
The soldier killed by two crazed fanatics just yards from the Woolwich Barracks was wearing a Help for Heroes top when he was attacked.
The young serviceman was hit by a car and crushed into a road sign on the street in south-east London before he was brutally murdered.
Video footage showed the dead man was wearing a dark blue top with white writing on it – which is believed to be the same as the Help for Heroes hoodie (right).
The killers attacked him with a collection of weapons including meat cleavers and knives before waiting for police to arrive, their hands covered in blood.
Today members of the public were donating to the charity which helps wounded troops with their rehabilitation.
One man called Allan Beattie who donated to the charity wrote: ‘In memory of the soldier brutally murdered yesterday – rest in peace – and a thank you to all of our brave service men and women who do so much for us’
Kelly Alexander, who also gave to the charity wrote: ‘Last night a black cloud went over our country,it will never be the same again,Rip to this young man brutally slain in his home country.I salute you x’

Should British servicemen be allowed to wear their uniforms on the street after Woolwich killing?
Speaking outside Downing Street after chairing a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee, the Prime Minister said the attack ‘sickens us all’ and was a ‘betrayal of Islam’.
‘The people who did this were trying to divide us. They should know something like this will only bring us together and make us stronger,’ he said.
‘This country will be absolutely resolute in its stand against violent extremism and terror. We will never give in to terror or terrorism in any of its forms.
‘This view is shared by every community in our country. This was not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life; it was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country.’

KILLERS WHO BUTCHERED SOLDIER ARE CONDEMNED BY MUSLIM GROUPS
Tributes: A woman leaves flowers at the scene today following the killing which was condemned by the Muslim Council of Britain
The killers who executed a soldier on a London street were today condemned by Muslim groups for their ‘truly barbaric act’.
The Muslim Council of Britain said the killers’ use of ‘Islamic slogans’ indicated they were motivated by their faith.
A statement from the council said: ‘This is a truly barbaric act that has no basis in Islam and we condemn this unreservedly. Our thoughts are with the victim and his family.
‘We understand the victim is a serving member of the Armed Forces. Muslims have long served in this country’s Armed Forces, proudly and with honour.
‘This attack on a member of the Armed Forces is dishonourable, and no cause justifies this murder.’
The group called for vigilance and solidarity between ‘all our communities, Muslim and non-Muslim’, and for police to ‘calm tensions’.
Akbar Khan from Building Bridges said : ‘We totally condemn the killing of an innocent person in Woolwich.
‘And we also condemn all forms of extremism wherever they are.
‘The thoughts of the Muslim community are with the family of the man who lost his life, and we pray for him.’
Mohammed Shafiq from the Ramadhan Foundation said yesterday: ‘I wish to condemn the evil and barbaric crime carried out in Woolwich.
‘Our immediate thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims. From whatever angle you see the attack, it was at every level evil.
‘We must allow the police to gather all the facts before unnecessary speculation and wait for the facts before determining its impact on our country.
‘But what happens in the days to come, London and our nation will come together and will not be divided. The terrorists will never win and succeed in their evil plans.’
Julie Siddiqi, of the Islamic Society of Britain, told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: ‘We can’t allow the voices of Nick Griffin and the far right to become louder than ours in the coming days. They will say what we have to say and it gives us even more incentive to speak out and come together and not allow people like that to divide us as a country.
‘This is one of the most shocking things I have seen in recent years and to have the people of Woolwich have to experience that so close to them, I just feel is absolutely horrific.’
SHOCKED EYEWITNESS SAYS MAN WAS ‘HACKED, CHOPPED AND CUT’
An eyewitness who watched a man brutally killed with a machete-style knife and dumped in a street last night dramatically revealed how he watched the two attackers behave like ‘crazed animals’.
The man, known only as James, said he and his partner saw two black men attack a young man aged around 20 in a Help for Heroes T-shirt like he was ‘a piece of meat’.
Fighting back tears, he told LBC Radio: ‘They were hacking at this poor guy, literally. They were chopping him, cutting him. These two guys were crazed. They were just animals.
‘They dragged him from the pavement, dumped his body in the middle of the road and left (it) there.’
He said that after the ‘horrendous’ attack, the two men, in their 20s, stood around, waving knives and a gun, even asking people nearby to take pictures of them ‘as if they wanted to be on TV’.
‘They were oblivious to anything, they were more worried about having their photo taken, running up and down the road,’ he said.
‘They had no intention of running off or leaving or anything. In my opinion, they were waiting for the police to arrive to be shot by the police. That’s the only thing I can think. It’s horrendous what they were doing to that guy.’
Last night Mr Cameron cut short his trip to Paris and described the assassination as ‘absolutely sickening’, insisting Britain will ‘never buckle’ in the face of terrorist attacks.
Security was tightened at dozens of other Army barracks across the country amid fears of copycat attacks and Home Secretary Theresa May called a meeting of Cobra, Whitehall’s emergency committee, after being briefed by MI5 and counter-terrorism police.
Experts believe the pair were using Muslim names and could be of Somali or Nigerian heritage.
It is thought the two fundamentalists had spent weeks watching the barracks, which the Queen is due to visit next week, prior to the attack.
The ambush and stabbing of a soldier close to an army barracks is an unprecedented Islamic attack on mainland Britain.
A group of military wives who laid flowers today said they were ‘numb’.
One of the women, in her 20s, who did not want to be named, said: ‘We are all just very numb at the moment – shaken up and very shocked. It could have been any one of our husbands.
‘He was a young guy who cared very much about his job, like they all do. I think he was in training.’
The killing immediately prompted widespread revulsion. David Cameron said Britain ‘will not be cowed, will never buckle’ in the face of terrorism last night as he urged people to go about their lives as normal in defiance of the ‘absolutely sickening’ killing in London.
London Mayor Mr Johnson said: ‘Londoners from all communities, from across this city have been here before.

PREVIOUS ATTACK ON SOLDIER
In February 2008 a Birmingham man was jailed for life for plotting to kidnap and kill a British Muslim soldier.
Parviz Khan admitted planning to lure the soldier off the streets with the promise of drugs – then film his beheading.
He was described in court as having ‘the most violent and extreme Islamist views’, and the judge said his aim was to deter any Muslim from joining the British Army.
Khan was ordered to serve at least 14 years in jail.
‘I know that this is a city of incredible resilience and courage and we have to protect ourselves with the best security services, the most professional police service, in the world.’
Relations between British Muslims in the armed forces and their colleagues will not be strained following the murder of a British soldier in Woolwich, a retired army captain has said.
Captain Afzal Amin, former chairman of the Armed Forces Muslim Association, said: ‘I send my condolences to the poor victim, not just as a former army officer but as a British Muslim.
‘We’re not accustomed to this kind of completely inexplicable attack.’
‘There are a wide range of racial backgrounds in the armed forces which have formed a good, solid integrated body. I’m sure relations are already well established.’
‘Remember the context of all of this,’ he added. ‘This was an attack on an innocent soldier, an abhorrent crime in a normally cohesive society.’
Last night the Muslim Council of Britain said it was a ‘truly barbaric act that has no basis in Islam’. ‘We condemn this unreservedly,’ a spokesman said. ‘Our thoughts are with the victim and his family.
‘We understand the victim is a serving member of the Armed Forces. Muslims have long served in this country’s Armed Forces, proudly and with honour.
‘This attack on a member of the Armed Forces is dishonourable and no cause justifies this murder. This action will no doubt heighten tensions on the streets of the United Kingdom.’
Police cordon: The area is sealed off yesterday afternoon in the immediate aftermath of the killing
ROYAL ARTILLERY BARRACKS
The incident occurred some 200 yards from the Royal Artillery Barracks, adjacent to Woolwich Common, the historical home of the Royal Artillery.
The barracks, also known as the Woolwich station, now houses a number of the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery and independent companies of the Grenadier and Coldstream Guards.
Woolwich Common remains a military training area. The shooting events at the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics were held at a temporary venue at the Barracks.
Dozens of people watched as the two men hacked the innocent soldier to death across the road from a nearby primary school.
Last night Newsnight correspondent Richard Watson said: ‘I received a very interesting phone call from a source who knows the British jihadi scene very well and [he] said that one of the attackers was Nigerian in origin, has been living in the UK for many years, [and] was radicalised by the Islamist group Al Muhajiroun [a banned extremist group] in 2003.
‘He suggested to me that just last year this young man was stopped or arrested … on his way to join Al Shabaab in Somalia.’
More than 200 far-Right English Defence League supporters descended on Woolwich last night. The mob, some wearing black balaclavas, chanted ‘Rule Britannia’ and ‘EDL’, and were kept penned in by police officers.

FEMALE GUN COPS WHO AREN’T AFRAID TO PULL THE TRIGGER
The officer involved in the Woolwich shooting is one of only a handful of women in Scotland Yard’s elite CO19 unit.
In London, although women fill about one in five police roles, they represent only a tiny proportion of firearms officers.
The markswomen are highly trained and treated as equals in their units – if it falls to them to shoot at a suspect, so be it.
Front-line: In recent years the Met has held women-only recruitment days for its firearms units
Their skills are prized by police commanders, who desperately want to increase their number.
Despite the events of yesterday, they believe the presence of female officers at highly charged confrontations can often help defuse violence.
In recent years the Met has held women-only recruitment days for its firearms units and appointed existing female officers as mentors.
Senior officers even considered running training sessions for women with childcare responsibilities – and investing in lighter firearms.
In a recent interview, one woman firearms officer said: ‘Men and women have a different viewpoint. Women have a defusing effect, calming things down.’
Firearms officers in armed response vehicles are called out about 1,000 times a month to a variety of incidents in London.
Although shots are fired on only a handful of occasions, the use of firearms inevitably provokes controversy and wider questions about lethal force.
Integrating women into armed response units has met with problems in some parts of the country.
Last week a North Yorkshire Police woman firearms officer was awarded £20,000 damages after suffering discrimination at the hands of her colleagues.
The only woman member of an all-male unit was asked if she wanted a ‘pink gun’ and endured a cruel sexist practical joke.
The case is one of several involving women police officers. Another force is contesting claims by women that they were unfairly singled out during training.

FIRST TERROR ATTACK ON BRITISH STREETS SINCE 2005 LONDON BOMBINGS
Dark day: The July 7 atrocity saw 52 people killed by four suicide bombers on London’s transport network
Yesterday’s killing in broad daylight is thought to be the first terrorist attack on British streets since the 2005 London bombings.
The July 7 atrocity saw 52 people killed by four suicide bombers on London’s transport network. Since then, there have been a number of other plots – the first coming just two weeks after July 7.
Another group of four bombers had attempted to replicate the earlier attack but their plan failed. They were caught and each jailed for life.
With reports of the victim being a soldier, the Woolwich incident mirrors a plot which saw a Birmingham man jailed for life in 2008 for plotting to kidnap and kill a British Muslim soldier.
Parviz Khan admitted planning to lure the soldier off the streets with the promise of drugs – then film his beheading.
He was described in court as having ‘the most violent and extreme Islamist views’, with the judge saying his aim was to deter any Muslim from joining the British Army. Khan was ordered to serve at least 14 years in jail.
Terrorism also hit the headlines in June 2007 when, following an unsuccessful car bomb attack that targeted Tiger Tiger in central London, a flaming Jeep was driven at Glasgow Airport on June 30.
One of the perpetrators, Kafeel Ahmed, died in hospital after suffering severe burns in the attack, while Bilal Abdulla was arrested and given a life sentence the following year.
The most recent planned attack aimed at killing large numbers of victims was in May 2008.
Muslim convert Nicky Reilly was planning to blow up dozens of diners with a nail bomb in in Exeter, but he accidentally detonated the device in the restaurant’s toilet. He admitted the plan and also received a life sentence.
According to M15, there have been a total of 2,291 arrests under the Terrorism Act between September 11, 2001, and 30 September, 2012 and 312 people have been convicted of terrorism-related offences.
As of the end of September last year, there were 107 people serving sentences in UK prisons classified as terrorists. Notable plots in recent years include:
Planned attack: Muslim convert Nicky Reilly wanted to blow up dozens of diners with a nail bomb in in Exeter, but he accidentally detonated the device in the restaurant’s toilet
- A 2006 plan to blow up aircraft being flown between the UK, America and Canada using liquid explosives which led to 12 people being jailed.
- A plot to attack UK and US targets with a ‘dirty bomb’ and gas-filled limousines that saw al Qaida operative Dhiren Barot sentenced to 30 years in jail in 2006, and seven other men linked to the plot jailed the following year.
- Plans to target shopping centres and nightclubs using fertiliser-based explosives that led to five men being jailed for life in 2007.
- The attempted murder of Stephen Timms MP, who was stabbed by Roshonara Choudry. The student, who was said to have been inspired by extremist sermons she watched on the internet, was convicted of attempted murder in 2010.
- A plan to attack the London Stock Exchange, which saw nine members of a terrorist network later receive sentences of between five and 17 years each in February 2012.
Three high-profile sentencing hearings took place last month alone.
On April 18, four men from Luton – Zahid Iqbal, Mohammed Sharfaz Ahmed, Umar Arshad and Syed Farhan Hussain – were given long jail terms for their roles in plotting an al Qaida-inspired attack in the UK.
They had intended to carry out terrorist attacks in Luton using improvised explosive devices and all admitted engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism between January 2011 and April 2012.
British Islamic extremists Richard Dart, Imran Mahmood and Jahangir Alom were jailed for more than 20 years in total on April 25 after admitting engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism.
They had discussed targets including Wootton Bassett, the Old Bailey was told.
The following day, 11 men from Birmingham were sentenced for their roles in a major terrorist plot. They were said to have been planning suicide bomb blasts that would have rivalled both the July 7 and September 11 attacks.
Six men from the West Midlands also appeared in court last month to plead guilty to terrorist charges connected to an attempt to attack an English Defence League rally in June 2012.
Omar Mohammed Khan, Mohammed Hasseen, Anzal Hussain, Mohammed Saud, Zohaib Ahmed and Jewel Uddin admitted preparing an act of terrorism. All six will be sentenced on June 6.
