Central Stockholm Shut Down After Terror Truck Attack

Front Page Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield, April 7, 2017:

Terror is the new normal in Western countries with large Muslim populations. Car Jihad has now become ubiquitous and it makes a mockery of gun control arguments.

According to the police, there are 9 seriously injured and 4 dead when the terrorist slammed a hijacked beer truck into a department store. Just as in the London attack, the numbers can easily change. Two children are among the injured. One child is severly hurt.

The attackers fled to the subway. Two men were taken into custody. One appears to have confessed to the attack.

But it’s this part of the account which really captures how thoroughly Islamic terror has put countries on a domestic war footing.

Police discourage people from staying in the city. Police urge people to quickly get away from central Stockholm. Shop employees in the area have been asked to remain in the stores and not go out. Police have also urged people not to move to the Old Town and to the people of Södermalm should stay indoors. – Our general recommendation is to avoid the city at all now, both on foot and in cars, says Lars Byström, spokesperson of the Stockholm police.

That’s how you know there’s a war at home. And if at first they don’t succeed, they will keep trying and trying.

Friday’s crash is near the site of a December 2010 attack in which Taimour Abdulwahab, a Swedish citizen who lived in Britain, detonated a suicide bomb, killing himself and injuring two others.

Abdulwahab rigged a car with explosives in the hope that the blast would drive people to Drottninggatan — the street hit Friday — where he would set off devices strapped to his chest and back. The car bomb never went off, and Abdulwahab died when one of his devices exploded among panicked Christmas shoppers.

His successor appears to have achieved a better death toll. This is the reality we’re all living with. This is what we’re going to be living with until real common sense migration reform that closes the door on terror states is implemented.
