Europe is in deep yogurt, but they seem to be digging themselves out. Slowly. 14 arrests after major anti-terror raids in Austria – The Local
“As part of an ongoing investigation into suspected membership of a terrorist organisation (‘Isis’) a coordinated operation planned for some time took place involving 800 officers,” Graz prosecutors said.
A total of 14 people were arrested in several cities.
The NYSlimes, the WaPo, et al seem to be ignoring this attack. Terrorist stabs two Border Policemen with screwdriver in Jerusalem – Arab-Israeli Conflict – Jerusalem Post
I guess Palestinian Terrorists attacking Jewish Police doesn’t reach the level of interesting for them.
Two Border Police officers are in light condition after being stabbed in the head and upper body with a screwdriver by an Arab terrorist near Lion’s Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City on Wednesday afternoon.
The terrorist has been ‘neutralized,’ (with extreme prejudice).
Anyone who said as much, was shouted down by the left as being xenophobic, or crazy. But even a broken clock is right once twice a day. Ansbach bomber’s membership of jihadist group raises questions over Germany’s screening of asylum-seekers
Mohammad Daleel, the 27-year-old Syrian who detonated explosives outside a music festival in the German city, had fought with al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra.
It appears that Daleel later pledged allegiance to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) after the 2013 split from Nusra.
Still he got into Germany as a refugee seeking asylum from something.
There are certainly refugees who need help. Just as certainly there are terrorists pretending to be refugees looking to do bad things to the West. Ignoring one of these 2 facts is just as simple-minded as ignoring the other. (Even if that is not what the Left would like you to believe.) I don’t know how you sort the wheat from the chaff, but I know we have to try, or the body-count in the West is going to grow.
This attack took place in a Catholic church. At least one dead in French church hostage taking
Several people were taken hostage by two men with knives in a Catholic church in the Normandy region of France. A priest was killed and another hostage badly wounded. The assailants had since been “neutralized.”
That’s “neutralized” with extreme prejudice.
Hollande told reporters he had met with survivors and first responders. He said the attack was carried out by two “terrorists” who had “claimed to be from Daesh,” using the Arabic name for the “Islamic State” group. He labeled the attack “cowardly.”
Name calling isn’t going to get the job done, but that is all that is left to the political establishment in Europe. Because to actually do anything that might improve security would be mean. Or something. At this point, I’m not sure what they can do.
Germany is having a bad week. Germany blast: Ansbach bar explosion ‘leaves one dead’ – BBC News
There are conflicting reports about the cause, although the city’s mayor is quoted as saying it was an “explosive device”.
Police have sealed off the area around Eugene’s Wine Bar, the Nordbayern.de news website reported.
One dead and nine injured in this latest attack.
The shooting of multiple people in Munich, an attack on a train in Wuerzburg, Bavaria, and a machete attack that killed one and injured two, earlier today. It has been a tough week for our European friends. That doesn’t even consider what happened in France.
Gunmen opened fire in a shopping mall. At least 9 dead in shooting at Munich shopping center
Police declared an “acute terrorist situation” Friday in Munich and shut down traffic and rail service in the southern German city to search for as many as three gunmen who went on a shooting rampage at a shopping mall, killing at least eight people.
Authorities are calling it a terror attack.
Don’t expect the media to turn away from the GOP convention frenzy to report on any news. French woman and her three daughters’ stabbed by Moroccan man in Alpine resort
His reason for the attack: He was angry at the way the daughters were dressed. Though the French authorities are trying to quash that. “No rush to judgement.” Right.
The attacker, named as Mohamed B, 37, “may have acted out of religious motives”, French television channel TF1 reported.
Despite the prosecutor’s denial, TF1 reported that he was angry that the girls were wearing shorts.
France is in deep yogurt, and sinking.
