Fast Draw – Europeans Bury their Heads in the Sand

In the past, it seemed that the Europeans had buried their heads in the sand in order to avoid calling the problem by its proper name – Islamic terrorism, at all its forms, which has been killing their citizens every couple of days.

But last week and this week, they haven’t been only buring the head in the sand but submerging the whole body in deep sand. The Europeans are afraid to admit that everything has been connected to Islamic terrorism, even more than they are afraid of the terrorists’ bullets, axes and knives. they’re afraid to admit that radical Islam has been killing their citizens.

The German authorities orchestrated a media campaign in attempt to prove that the Iranian who killed nine people next to a Munich McDonald’s branch perpetrated the attack for personal reasons. If it wasn’t sad it could have been funny. Maybe the man was a lunatic, but he was undoubtedly influenced by the atmosphere promoted by ISIS in its war against the “infidels”. But Germany and some other countries in Europe stick to their position.

Yesterday, a 21-year-old Syrian asylum seeker killed a woman with a machete and wounded another woman and a man in the southern German town of Ruetlingen, not far from Stuttgart. After his arrest, the police said that he was apparently acting alone, but that there was no evidence to a terrorist motive. Again, the same familiar ridiculous tune.

It was also reported that the young man was known to police, and was already involved in past assaults. Yet it is still unknown when he entered the country and when the previous incidents occured. The French news agency reported that the young man was having an argument with the woman before attacking her.

The incident occurred just two days after the massacre in Munich and five days after the Wurzburg axe assault, for which the “Islamic State” (ISIS) claimed responsibility. Yesterday German officials called to reconsider the state’s already strict weapon laws.

And yesterday evening 12 people were wounded, three critically injured, in a suicide attack in a restaurant in Ansbach, southern Germany. The terrorist, a 27-year-old Syrian refugee, blew himself up after he was denied access to the nearby music festival, according to the Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann.

Herrmann said that it was not clear if the terrorist was trying to kill others or just himself, but added that “the possibility of an Islamist terrorist attack could not be ruled out.” He said the terrorist had already tried to commit suicide twice before, and had previously been in psychiatric care.

Hermmann also indicated that the terrorist’s past application for asylum in Germany had been rejected by the authorities a year ago. Yet he was allowed to stay in Germany due to the situation in Syria.

Again they are ignoring reality – the Munich shooter probably purchased the pistol on the “Darknet” Internet sites, where crimes can be committed almost anonymously.

If everything was coincidental – then why are all the assailants Muslim?

Until when will Europe submerge in the sand entirely just in order to avoid calling the issue by its proper name – radical Islam declared war against the free world, and the war is in its course. That fact would not be changed by any worthless camouflage campaign.
