    Islamic Extremists Urge Lone Wolves in Europe, Australia and the U.S. to ‘Burn Children With Oil’ (breitbart, Dec 1, 2017)

    “Calls by an Islamic State-linked group for so-called lone wolves to murder Western children are going viral in Islamic fundamentalist chat rooms.

    The violent message was uncovered by the U.S.-based SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks jihadist activity on the internet.

    “I wish that I could travel to Europe or America or Australia and, by Allah, burn their children with oil in place of their men and women,” read the message, which was disseminated widely online.

    “I would not choose a market, club, shopping centre, or park… no… no… no… I would choose a kindergarten and a maternity hospital to slaughter them.”…”

  2. Will no one rid us of these abominable Esquimaux assailants?!?

    After all, who else could it be that strikes in such cold weather? Certainly not the Arabs!!!

    Worst of all, what will it take to ensure that somnolent Europeans finally manage to realize exactly when, how, and where-from these terrorist atrocities arise?

    What sort of abhorrent mass-slaughter will be required to permanently persuade these all-too-tranquil Continentals about how mistaken they are regarding the error of their ways?

    I cannot bring myself to wish upon them any sort of 9-11 Atrocity. All the same, through willful ignorance and an adamant refusal to recognize the obvious, these slumbering Multicultural loons are inviting a terrorist attack that will make all previous jihadist horrors fade into insignificance.
