    “We don’t know the motive yet”

    Yeah, hard to say, of course. If only the killer had given us some sort of clue…

    Imagine if this guy had walked in and announced in a crisp clear voice “These people are infidels and my religion dictates that I kill them in cold blood. Watch, I will do this right now…”. The talking heads would look upon this with consternation and furrowed brows and wonder “Gosh, if we only knew his motive…”. “Allahu Ackbar” is just convenient shorthand. Like a catchphrase of horribleness.

    I was going to write about this and you beat me to it! Good deal.

    This all stems from the crack down Macron has put on Islamism since the Samuel Paty murder/beheading. For those that don’t know, Paty was beheaded by a jihadist who wanted retribution for Paty showing the Charlie Hebdo Mohammed cartoons. I don’t know how tough Macron actually got, but he was rhetorically critical of Islamism, and so Islamic leaders across the world denounced him as Islamophobic. Most vocal seem to be Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan. Khan calls for a “collective Muslim action against Islamophobia” while Erdogan whipped up Muslim passion by claiming Muslims across Europe are treated “like Jews before World War II.”

    What chutzpa? We’re Islamophobic? A Muslim beheads a Frenchman in the name of Islam, and France is condemned. Do you see any condemnation of the killer? Did they raise a voice against him?

    And now this other Jihadist kills three more in the name of Islam. I wonder where his passion came from? That’s rhetorical of course.

    There is no way to send back those that have already immigrated, but Islamic immigration to western countries needs to stop. They do not understand western values. The don’t want to assimilate. Free speech means people have a right to insult your prophet. They have a right to burn your holy book. They have a right to legislate against female circumcision and face coverings. If they don’t like it, they shouldn’t come here. The United States should be warned.

    Vance,

    Yep, they know what motivates anyone they suspect of supporting Trump but when an Islamic terrorist kills innocent helpless people in the most grotesque fashion they’ll wait for “authorities” to tell them what happened.

    Assh*les.

    Regards,

    Jim

    I can’t imagine western countries have the ability to force out masses of people after they have settled into their society. There are property rights and civil rights that would have to be undermined. Anyway, we’re civilized. Just stop any more from entering and pass laws that discourage them from entering, like prohibiting face coverings and sharia type practices that do not conform to our values.

    Allahu Akbar means “nothing to see here, move along”. Doesn’t it?
