DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. June 19, 2017, 2:02 PM (IDT)

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday after the attack on the London Mosque: “Extremism, terrorism and hatred take many forms and we condemn and pledge to stamp out extremism and hateful ideology whoever it harms, and that includes Islamophobia.”  Speaking after an emergency Cobra session,  she said there was only one suspect, the driver of the van who ran into worshippers coming out of the Finsbury Park Mosque, killing one person and injuring eight.  May said: “This act of terror was a sickening attempt to destroy freedom of worship.” She also commended the “brave” public which detained the assailant before the police arrived.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
