Any possibility that Trump doesn’t take radical Islam seriously has been voided. His official Facebook page linked to a JihadWatch.org article.
Or at least he is willing to be seen as taking it seriously. That is still a step up.
One of the lamentable impacts of the spate of terror attacks in France has been that local authorities are being forced to cancel certain summer events.
After the Bastille Day truck attack in Nice the interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve told mayors across the country not to think twice about cancelling an event if they thought security could not be guaranteed.During a visit to Lyon, Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said France had to take the threat seriously.“We are in a situation of war. So, for the moment, we have to forbid demonstrations if security norms cannot be respected,” he said.“Everyone has to understand that we are in this situation and that it brings constraints.”The list of cancelled events has started to grow.
3. Trump speaks in Virginia, some pro muslims get removed
(Notice the “Islam Peace” canard. They still expect people to not know that Islam means submission to the sharia and has nothing to do with peace. Speaking earlier today with Matt B. earlier, the subject came up of people who convert to islam in areas where you pretty much have to. Muslims don’t care if you don’t really mean it. They only care like you act like you mean it because your children won’t know anything else. This is precisely because Islam means submission and has nothing to do with anything we would consider spiritual. Islam is truly about as evil a thing as one can conceive of.)
4. There are truly momentous events taking place in Turkey. This story is interesting as it was always the most free and classically liberal minded paper, and several of its staff went to prison for actually writing news. This story however is nothing but a headline. Please read the comments with links about Turkey today in the reader’s links post. There are a lot and they are portentous.
A flash-mob prank gone wrong caused chaos and panic in a small beach town on the Costa Brava in Catalonia on Tuesday night, according to eyewitness reports from the scene and regional emergency services.
Diners in restaurants in Platja d’Aro, in the Girona province of Catalonia in north-eastern Spain, saw a group of men arrive in an apparently aggressive manner and decided it might be a jihadi attack, with hundreds fleeing the scene.
6. We are looking for someone who can translate Italian to English now as there is an interesting story out of Italy about a number of muslims who were arrested with backpacks full of rocks, bladed weapons and other unusual things for migrants to carry around. Like rocks. Who does that.
