EUROPE: Islamist Terror Attacks Timeline: From Paris And Brussels Terror To Most Recent Attacks In Europe. When Is Enough Going To Be Enough?!

I will add the latest that I know about so far:
London Bridge terror attack June 3, 2017

A group of Islamist used a van to mow down pedestrians on the London Bridge. Then jumped out of the van, went on a stabbing spree attacking people on the bridge. Then the Islamist attackers ran to the nearby Borough Market area surrounded by bistros and bars and continued stabbing people there. They managed to murder 7 people and injured 48 people. The Islamist terrorists were wearing fake bomb vest with the intent to takeover the Borough Market area and stab everyone there. But thank goodness, the police arrived quickly and the three Islamist terrorist were shot dead immediately. Thus, preventing a worse case scenario that the Islamist's had planned.
