An Onslaught of Islamist Violence Is Europe’s New Normal

Last Thursday, in an attack that has started to feel routine, Karim Cheurfi opened fire on French police on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, killing a police officer. Cheurfi then wounded two others before he was shot and killed. Police later found a note in which he expressed support for the Islamic State, which later declared him their “soldier.”

Following similar attacks in London, Stockholm, Paris, Nice, Berlin and Israel, Europe is waking up to the fact that these abrupt acts of murder — using knives, guns and cars — are the new norm.

Over the last five years, there has been a noticeable change in jihadist methods. During the 2000s, Al Qaeda and other violent Islamist groups were preoccupied with large explosions –terrorist acts that took months of planning, networks of contacts, sources of funding, and supplies of explosive material. The effects, when successful, produced enormous casualties and made for dramatic television. But these plots were also ripe for discovery by law enforcement: large money transfers were noticed, explosive materials were tracked, conspirators were surveilled and Muslim informants exposed whole Islamist cells.

On the other hand, acquiring a gun, picking up a knife, or simply getting into your car requires hardly any planning at all. Islamists have realized that ersatz terror may kill fewer people than showpiece terror, but its effects are just as terrifying and its success rate is far higher.

Islamist low-tech terrorism was first advocated seriously in 2010. Al-Qaeda in Yemen (led by the late American Islamist, Anwar Al-Awlaki) encouraged Muslims to get in their pick-up trucks, which they referred to as “Ultimate Mowing Machines,” and “mow down the enemies of Allah.”

One MILLION Views in just 24 hours!

Yesterday I did a Facebook LIVE session (in addition to all the news site postings here on The Geller Report) because I was so fed-up with the media’s pathetic and dangerous reportage. In the wake of every Islamic attack, the sharia-compliant media goes into “protect Islam” mode. Even our children are sacrificed to the Islamic prophet of doom.

Apparently, I was not the only one fed-up. In just 24 hours, the Facebook LIVE video had a million views. Further proof, that the media is dying, long live organic media.

I will try to do them more often as you seem to like them very much and they are easy to share. One million – that’s more than CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the running dogs in the left-wing media.
