ISIS Struck in Vienna

A man of only 20 years committed a horrifying terror attack in the Austrian capital of Vienna. Two men and two women were murdered, another 22 victims were injured. The attack stands in a long row of Islamic threats and attacks over the past weeks. Many, but not all, touch on the controversy over the depiction of Muhammed. Does the new attack follow that pattern? Maybe. Maybe not. Vienna and the area around the synagogue had been the scene of many Islamist assaults. Two were directly targeting the shul (in 1979 and in 1979). The most recent one, last Thursday, right after the Islamist savagery in Nice, France, happened in a small church. Around 50 Turks entered the Kirche St Anton von Padua and started kicking benches and the pardon box while shouting ‘Allahu akbar’. The police arrived before anything got damaged, but the offenders could flee the scene.

But who is the killer? What is his family? His culture? How is it that even secular families cannot protect their children against Islamism? How can a society protect itself? How can we protect ourselves without losing ourselves? And what are we protecting? Who are we?

  1. Thank you Ben for all the postings. I have not been on my site until now, because I have been fighting the so-called “post viral syndrome” of covid. I am slowly back, watching in horror what America has become. It looks more like a Third World Country, a Banana Republic, something that would happen in Central America or Africa. I am totally disgusted and YOUR leftist media (it appears almost all of them are like in the US) aggravates the hell out of me, when they want us to believe, how “they” know America and American politics, z.B. ARD, ZDF und die diversen grossen Zeitungen. I will go through all of your postings, because they are very interesting and give me material to “educate” the very naive American people.Sigrid

    1. I’m glad that you are recovering. What a battle.

      Our media is totally under the control of the US Democrats. It’s like 80% of the “news” are about the US and it is all with a hateful anti-American spin. Now that Trump is (probably) out, they will move to target Boris Johnson and Bibi Netanyahu more, but still rumor about the supposed KKK epidemic in America. They need the distraction from their own shortcomings. Of course, they will also find more “evidence” for a supposed Nazi-fascist coup d’etat in the making that all decent people have to fight against. So that will fill the news cycle.

      Thank you for informing people. Everybody counts. It is so vital.
