If you are ever in a public place that’s heavily populated and hear the phrase “Allahu Akbar” shouted to the rooftops, it’s probably a good idea to get the heck out of dodge.
Nothing good ever usually comes from those words being uttered out in the open, which is a lesson a group of Spanish cops recently learned the hard way, although thanks to their valiant efforts, there’s one less terrorist roaming free, and that is always a good thing.
Too bad folks on the left are still convinced that climate change is a bigger threat than radical Islamic terrorism. I don’t recall polar bears blowing themselves up for the sake of their false fish gods, do you?
A man was detained on Tuesday after attempting to cross the border between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Melilla while threatening police with a knife.
The man, believed to be Moroccan, approached the border at Beni Enzar at 7:35 a.m. and shouted “Allahu akbar” (God is Greatest) before he was brought down by police. One policeman was cut on the hand during the incident.
In close circuit television footage, the man, dressed in a blue shirt and white shorts, is seen walking across the border, waving the knife. Spanish police keep their distance before one officer runs up behind him and knocks him to the ground by striking him on the head with a white traffic bollard.
Once felled, the man is tackled by several police and detained.
Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido said on Twitter: “The rapid, coordinated and professional conduct of the police has avoided a serious incident in Beni Enzar. All my support to the hurt officer.”
This, folks, is the proper way to handle Islamic terrorists. Notice the police officers didn’t try to strike up a conversation with the guy to talk about his feelings like other “law enforcement” agencies and their “hug-a-Jihadi” programs.
Violent extremists are not just a bunch of misunderstood individuals who are down on their luck and need a hand up and not a hand out. They don’t blow themselves up because they are out of work or due to some sort of “oppression.”
They are the oppressors in their neck of the woods. They have the power and they lord it over others through the use of fear and murder.
Much of the reason Europe has been hit time and again by terrorist attacks is because they do not take the threat seriously and refuse to enforce border laws that would prevent these kind of people from just gaining instant access to to their countries.
This creates a national security risk by allowing Jihadis to set up terror cells and groups inside the borders of Europe. It’s akin to leaving your front door open and essentially inviting the neighborhood thieves and murderers right into your living room.
A strong national defense, including an improved and tough immigration system is the only way to combat attacks like this one and the others that have gone down in Paris and London.
We also have to stop fooling ourselves into believing that the ideology that comes directly out of Islam has nothing to do with inspiring these attacks. The men who have been influenced by the purest form of this religion have found purpose in the destruction of innocent life, hoping that death will cause all to fear their god and convert to the religion.
It’s the radical Islamic belief that a third world war must occur before the return of their version of the Messiah and this drives them to attempt goading other countries into war with them.
If we don’t start doing something to tackle their belief system, no matter how many groups we destroy and how many terrorists we put down, it will simply never stop.
