The sixth Terror attack between the United Kingdom and France occurred on the Champs d'Elysees, in Paris, 24 hours after the fifth attack, both car-ram, occurred outside a Mosque in London early Monday morning, killing one.

Europeans in both nations are on high alert with Terror Task Force stepping up as both United Kingdom and Paris have each experienced a car-ram attack in the last 48 hours. It is the fourth attack in London in 90 days and the third car-ram attack. The Manchester bombing which killed 22 and injured 102

Over the last three months the UK has seen three car-ram attacks, in quick succession, with the first occurring at the Palace of Westminster, the seat of British government, on March 22. Four citizens died and more than 50 were injured as Khalid Masood drove onto the curb across the bridge at high speed mowing down pedestrians and managed to cross the length of the bridge before coming to a stop near the House of parliament. He then began to stab onlookers and anyone with reach. He was shot and killed.

The Manchester Bombing, killed 22 and injured more than 100, occurred two months to the date on May 22, 2017 just minutes after the Ariana Grande, "Dangerous Women" tour had ended. The shrapnel bomb was detonated by a 22-year-old Islamic State fighter, Salman Abedi, who was known to authorities and considered a non-active or "peripheral" player.

Manchester is still burying its dead mostly young, vibrant, teens and 'tweens, stolen in their youth. The victims ranged from 8 years old to mid-forties waiting in the foyer of the Manchester/Victoria Subway station to pick up their children.

Ariana Grande immediately engaged with her fans and like everyone took to social media to speak out. She showed her strength of character and dedication to her fans by returning nine days later to host a One Love Manchester Benefit concert pulling in big name acts like Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Justin Beiber, Black-eyed Peas, Pharrell, Usher, and Coldplay. The concert sold out in six minutes and went off without incident raising money for the victims and survivors.

London Bridge and Borough Market attacks, began on Saturday, June 3, as a white van drove at a high rate of speed across the London Bridge, plowing into pedestrians, crashing into guardrails, and continuing the attack with machetes on the other side at Borough market.

Seven Londoners were killed and up to thirty injured as a van, mounted the sidewalk and barreled down the bridge, weaving, and zigzagging, bypassing singles, or couples on an evening stroll to focus on groups, striking them at nearly 50mph causing bodies to fly 20 feet into the air. The van continued toward the Borough Market area located on the opposite side of the Bridge.

Media reports three men jumped from the white van and randomly began stabbing crowds, entering in to bars, restaurants, and nightspots in the trendy Borough Market area, which is about three tenths of a mile from the Bridge.

The three terrorists were confronted by police, shot, and killed.  The two separate attacks, carried out by the same team of attackers, struck just twelve days after the Manchester Arena bombing which killed 22 and injured 120 and it is the third attack in 72 days, with the Parliament/Westminster Bridge Attack which killed four and injured 40 less than three months ago.

The most recent attack just this past Sunday, June 18,  at the Finsbury Park Mosque. The attack, which authorities are call a Islamophobic related attack and not committed by the Islamic State but committed against Muslims. One person has died.

The rise in terror attacks over the past the three months has given way to a growing feeling of distrust and concern over individuals, British Citizens, who follow the practices and teaching of Allah. Predominately Muslim, from specific nations, the concern is based in fear of another attack, of the rise of the Islamic State and the commitment of its followers to die.

One man has dead and ten injured in Sunday's attack. The man who died was receiving medical services at the time of the attack.


After a year which experienced the greatest single year rise in terror upon its nation, the French have experienced only two attacks in the last 90 days.

The first, on the eve the French elections, April 21, 2017, also on the Champs d'Elysees, killing one police officer and wounding two others and the second yesterday, when a car rammed into a police van in a botched suicide bombing attack. After the suspect was killed French police found the car filled with explosive and weapons.

The London, Manchester and Paris attacks have resulted in arrests of multiple suspects while exposing and mutinously following terror cells leads and networks throughout Europe.
