It’s often hard to keep track of the geopolitical ongoings day to day. Donald Trump struck Syrian, and yesterday there was a terror attack in Stockholm. We all know the world is full of evil. What happened in Stockholm yesterday is what evil looks like, and it’s the enemy we face. An enemy many on the left refuses to see.
As of this writing, at least four are dead and fifteen injured.
A suspected terrorist targeted young children as he drove a hijacked lorry into a crowded shopping street in Stockholm, witnesses claimed last night.
Infants’ buggies were sent “flying through the air”, one Swedish broadcaster reported, as the vehicle zigzagged along the pedestrianised Queen Street shopping district and embedded itself in the window of a department store.
“The truck swerved from side to side. It didn’t look out of control, it was trying to hit people,” a second witness, Glen Foran, an Australian tourist, told Reuters. “He hit people, it was terrible. The truck hit a pram with a kid in it, demolished it.”
According to the media, the terrorist’s “motives are currently unknown.” Even though murder seems to be the motive. But if you’re wondering what the greater, deeper motive was, having a door slammed in his face as he went door to door to preach the gospel or hand out Watchtower pamphlets, is a tad off the mark. Here’s a hint:
Some reports suggested he had previously posted jihadist propaganda on his Facebook page and had images of people injured in the explosion at the Boston marathon in April 2013.
Raise your hands if your surprised (see Media Refuses to Cover Muslim Crime in Sweden and Nigel Farage Schools Clueless Media: Sweden IS the Rape Capital of Europe). No one’s hands are raised? Good.
Because if you raised your hands, I’d have to wonder what exactly you read when you visit LwC. Other than watching the videos, if you read any of our words (as you’re doing now, bravo you), you’re surprised exactly zero that the terrorist in Stockholm is a Muslim with jihad on the mind. He certainly wasn’t thinking Amy Schumer is hot in a swimsuit.
Islamic terrorists are the enemy. They hate the West for exactly what the West stands for: freedom, actual gender equality, and of course our Judeo-Christian values, amongst other things. We must know and accept who they are before we can adequately combat them. Sweden is far behind on this key point. The country has naively accepted Muslim migrants into their Western country (or used to be Western country) under a squishy idea of multiculturalism and acceptance. Where Islamists care not one C4 block about either.
This is our enemy. The terrorist targeted children. How much clearer can we make this case?
