A machete-wielding man yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is greatest) injured two female police officers before being shot outside the main police station in the southern Belgian city of Charleroi on Saturday.
The attacker walked up to an officer, pulled a machete out of his bag, and sliced one across her face.
It appears to be an act of terrorism according to Prime Minister Charles Michel.
This was another gun free terrorist attack.
Also, this week, a mentally ill Norweigan Somalian stabbed a 64-year old American woman to death. She was vacationing with her husband, a professor, and would have returned home today. Five others were wounded. He was allegedly not a terrorist but he was a mass killer and he used a knife.
These attacks are hard to prevent.
Gun control is being touted as the solution but guns are under strict control in Europe and that is not the answer.
The other answer and the only one that has a shot at working is limiting immigration from these terror nations. There is no other solution but Barack Obama is touting the fact that he will be able to exceed his 10,000 Syrian immigration benchmark before he is out of office. That doesn’t count the hundreds of thousands from other nations from which immigrants cannot be vetted.
FBI Director James Comey recently warned of a “terrorist diaspora out of Syria,” but it hasn’t slowed down the immigration.
Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., urged President Obama in a letter Thursday to “immediately stop accepting Syrian refugees as a matter of national security.”
He wrote: “We are seeing a clear pattern in which a number of recent attacks have been carried out by ISIS terrorists with ties to Syria, including: the July 24 bombing of a music festival in Germany; the July 26 killing of a French priest; and the July 24 murder of a German woman with a machete. Syrian refugees played a part, either as attackers or accomplices, in all three attacks.
“In the context of this clear threat, your goal of admitting 10,000 Syrians as a part of a so-called ‘surge operation’ is extremely troubling. … Terrorists are leaving Syria disguised as refugees and carrying out attacks in the West. The prudent course of action is to halt all admissions of Syrians into the U.S. until the safety of Americans can be guaranteed,” he wrote.
In a statement Thursday night, the Donald Trump campaign said the administration was “dangerously expediting their admission.”
Barack Obama arrogantly gave amnesty to 8 thousand plus Syrians who made it to this country, even those who are here illegally.
It’s not only Syria, it’s Iraq, Afghanistan, Central Americans but this president doesn’t care and even though terrorists use knives, machetes, trucks and bombs, he will try to take guns from law-abiding citizens.
