Sometimes it’s refreshing and restorative to the soul to hear someone in authority tell the truth and display some common sense…
Although it often appears that the Islamic push for caliphate is working at an alarmingly successful rate in Europe, at least one Italian leader has had enough. The Mayor of Venice has announced that police officers will shoot on sight anyone who shouts “allah akbar.” His move comes in the wake of the gruesome terrorist attack in Barcelona and the discovery of even more destruction planned by the cell.
Luigi Brugnaro, mayor of the tourist hot spot, revealed his orders during the summer think tank meeting. He warned that anyone shouting the battle phrase would be immediately shot by snipers or policeman who are situated around the city, saying, “Anyone who shouts [God is Great in Arabic] in St Mark’s Square can expect to be gunned down by snipers within four paces.” His comments were met with boisterous applause by delegates.
Brugnaro is fed up with both the invasion and the murderous tactics employed by the droves of Muslims storming the shores of Italy. The un-politically correct Mayor said that Venice needed to increase security “when it comes to terrorism.”
Four paces seems a bit overly gracious…Lynyrd Skynyrd only asked for three Steps…
He reminded the audience of the would-be attackers on the Rialto bridge saying the four men “wanted to go and meet Allah” so any who aspire to do the same will be sent “straight to Allah without having to throw them off the bridge.” He said, “we will just shoot them.’’
Later that evening he told reporters, ’’I have never been politically correct, in fact I am politically correct and that’s why we also need a naval blockade against people coming into Italy from north Africa.’’
A naval blockade would be a security improvement for the country. Italy has been deluged with African migrants, nearly 14,000 landing within 48 hours in one instance. In fact, from January to the end of June, the number of “migrants” was over 73,000, which is about half the amount of U.S. troops who landed in France on D-Day. About 23,000 landed on Utah Beach in WWII. Brugnaro is absolutely right to consider the migration a serious, and deadly activity.
His statements are oddly similar to President Trump’s, and not so oddly, he’s being attacked and ridiculed for them by a number of news outlets. When he first took office two years ago, his stance against homosexuality caused him to remove 49 books from Venetian schools that glorified same-sex relationships.
One month after he removed the books, Brugnaro tried to ban the gay pride parades from the city. He said they were the “height of kitsch.” So, at least he tried to prevent the annual takeover of his city.
Some people are treating his words like a joke. However, the cry of jihadists was first used by their prophet Muhammad in the seventh century when going into battle, and it is almost always on the lips of murderers when they slaughter innocent civilians.
Americans know the phrase all too well. The notes made by the 9/11 bombers has a passage that said to “shout” the phrase, “because this strikes fear in the hearts of non-believers.”
The event held on Tuesday centered around a panel designed to discuss radicalism and terrorism. However, the media and a few leftists in the town are laughing about the Mayor’s comments. His threat to take down anyone shouting the phrase was used as the butt of a joke at the conference.
Florence’s mayor Dario Nardella came up to Brugnaro shouting “Allahu akbar,” which garnered chuckles from a few delegates. He later apologized, because many thought the joke trivialized terrorism, mocked Islam, or was in extremely bad taste considering the 13 dead and 125 wounded in the Barcelona attack.
Brugnaro wants to ensure that Muslims don’t have a chance to praise their God while murdering his town’s people. He has ordered police to shoot anyone calling the sacrificial phrase and snipers have been posted to back up the threat. His actions seem imminently sensible, which is probably why liberals are so upset by them.
