London police say that a knife-wielding man driving a Hyundai 4x4 jumped the curb onto the sidewalk to mow down pedestrians as he drove across the Westminster Bridge towards Parliament Wednesday afternoon.
While everyone's talking about Muslims and the deadly terrorist attack in London today, the Muslim mayor of that city, Sadiq Khan, is pushing hard for a policy that will save thousands of British lives.
In addition to the attacker and the stabbed police officer, two other people have died and 20 more were injured. As chaos broke out, the suspect left the vehicle and began attacking police officers with a knife.
Greens on the London Assembly have welcomed Mayor Sadiq Khan's assurances that "nothing is off the table" when it comes to cleaning up London's poor air quality. He has yet to release an official statement regarding the incident; however, it was pointed out that the mayor is likely not surprised by the attacks.
Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.

The chaos has allowed al-Qaida's affiliate in Syria and the Islamic State group to expand their reach. The Syrian army said it had shot down an Israeli jet during the Israeli military operation.
Khan also condemned President Donald Trump's proposed travel ban saying in May, 2016, that "London has proved him wrong", in its inclusive approach to counter-terrorism.
"Air pollution can't be reduced just in central London - pollution monitors from all around London show illegal breaches, not just in the centre".
"Nothing is more important to me than keeping Londoners safe", he said. Many have taken to social media to declare that more could be done by the government to ensure terrorists are not entering the country disguised as refugees and that anti-terrorism activities for extremists need stricter enforcement.
"Part and parcel of living in a great global city is you've got to be prepared for these things, you've got to be vigilant, you've got to support the police doing an incredibly hard job", said Mr Khan, who was in NY at the time.
