At least 35 people dead and 40 injured after Turkish nightclub attack

(SKY NEWS) — At least 35 people have been killed after a gunman reportedly dressed as Santa Claus attacked a nightclub in Turkey.

The governor of Istanbul has described the incident, which also injured at least 40 others, as a “terrorist attack”.

It is believed the gunman shot at police officers outside the Rezia nightclub before opening fire at random inside the building.

Estimates suggest about 500 to 600 people were celebrating the New Year at the venue.

Many people jumped into the Bosphorus river in panic.

Television footage showed ambulances and police vehicles on the street outside the nightclub in the Ortakoy district.

Media reports said police have cordoned off the area and an operation is ongoing.

Security measures had been heightened in major Turkish cities, with police barring traffic leading up to key city squares.

In Istanbul, 17,000 police officers were put on duty, some camouflaged as Santa Claus and others as street vendors, Anadolu reported.

Ankara and Istanbul have been targeted by several attacks in 2016 carried out by the Islamic State group or Kurdish rebels, killing more than 180 people.

Geert Wilders warns ‘political revolution is brewing in Europe’

(GATESTONE INSTITUTE) — By Geert Wilders

The German authorities are dangerously underestimating the threat of Islam… They have betrayed their own citizens.

Let no-one tell you that only the perpetrators of these crimes are to blame. The politicians, who welcomed Islam into their country, are guilty as well. And it is not just Frau Merkel in Germany, it is the entire political elite in Western Europe.

Out of political-correctness, they have deliberately turned a blind eye to Islam. They have refused to inform themselves about its true nature. They refuse to acknowledge that is all in the Koran: the permission to kill Jews and Christians (Surah 9:29), to terrorize non-Muslims (8:12), to rape young girls (65:4), to enslave people for sex (4:3), to lie about one’s true goals (3:54), and the command to make war on the infidels (9:123) and subjugate the entire world to Allah (9:33).

We will have to de-islamize our societies…. But it all begins with politicians with the courage to face and speak the truth.

More and more citizens are aware of that. This is why a political revolution is brewing in Europe. Patriotic parties are rapidly growing everywhere. They are Europe’s only hope for a better future.

Yesterday, the Islamic State claimed the Berlin terror attack of Monday evening, in which twelve people were killed with a truck at a Christmas market.

The killer managed to escape. However, in the truck the police found identity papers belonging to Anis A., a Tunisian who came to Germany as an asylum seeker in 2015.

When last year German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened Germany’s borders to almost one million refugees and asylum seekers, she invited the Trojan horse of Islam into her country. Among the so-called refugees were many young men of Islamic background, filled with hatred for the West and its civilization. One of them was Anis A.

It took almost a year for the German authorities to reject his asylum request, but meanwhile the man had disappeared. The police are now looking for him as a prime suspect of Monday’s attack in Berlin.

The German authorities are dangerously underestimating the threat of Islam. They signs are there for all to see. In October, an Afghan asylum seeker raped and murdered a 19-year old German girl in Freiburg. And a 12-year old Iraqi boy was caught before he could explode a nail bomb at a Christmas market in Ludwigshafen.

Last Summer, an Afghan with an axe attacked train passengers in Heidingsfeld, a Syrian murdered a pregnant woman with a machete in Reutlingen, another Syrian detonated a suicide bomb at a music festival in Ansbach, a Palestinian attempted to decapitate a surgeon in Troisdorf. And who has forgotten last New Year’s eve, when migrant sex mobs assaulted hundreds of women in Cologne?

This year, 1,500 police officers will be patrolling the streets in Cologne on New Year’s eve. Ten times more than last year. But how many police officers will be needed next year? And the year after that? And what will happen when they are outnumbered? What is needed are not just more police officers; what is needed is a democratic political revolution.

The Politicians Are Guilty

Let no-one tell you that only the perpetrators of these crimes are to blame. The politicians, who welcomed Islam into their country, are guilty as well. And it is not just Frau Merkel in Germany, it is the entire political elite in Western Europe.

Out of political-correctness, they have deliberately turned a blind eye to Islam. They have refused to inform themselves about its true nature. They refuse to acknowledge that is all in the Koran: the permission to kill Jews and Christians (Surah 9:29), to terrorize non-Muslims (8:12), to rape young girls (65:4), to enslave people for sex (4:3), to lie about one’s true goals (3:54), and the command to make war on the infidels (9:123) and subjugate the entire world to Allah (9:33).

Instead of informing themselves, they have opened their country’s borders to mass immigration and invited asylum seekers in, despite the fact that IS had announced that it would send terrorists to the West as asylum seekers.

BREAKING NEWS: Berlin terror attack: Truck plows into crowd of shoppers killing nine, trapping others and leaving 50 injured at Christmas market – with killer driver now on the run

(UK DAILY MAIL) — At least nine people have been killed and more than 50 injured after a truck plowed through a crowd of shoppers at 40mph in a busy Christmas market in Berlin.

German police at the scene have indicated the incident is likely to be a terror attack.

The vehicle sped through a crowd of shoppers at the market on Breitscheidplatz Square near the Kurfuerstendamm Avenue in west Berlin.

The driver of the truck was arrested near the scene and is in police custody after initially fleeing the area, while a passenger died.

Police in Berlin are now using Twitter to urge locals to stay in their homes as German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she is ‘mourning the dead’.

Ambulances and police rushed to the area after the driver mounted the pavement of the market in a central square popular with tourists – in scenes reminiscent of the deadly truck attack in the French city of Nice in July.

‘I heard a big noise and then I moved on the Christmas market and saw much chaos…many injured people,’ Jan Hollitzer, deputy editor in chief of Berliner Morgenpost, told CNN. ‘It was really traumatic.’

Horrifying pictures and videos from Berlin show emergency services racing to the scene and the devastating aftermath as the lorry plowed through the market.

Terrified market-goers tweeted horrifying images from the scene of the incident – which comes just one hour after the Russian ambassador was shot dead in Ankara.

German police have urged civilians to remain at home

Mike Fox, a tourist from Birmingham, said the large truck missed him by about three meters as it drove into the market, tearing through tables and wooden stands. ‘It was definitely deliberate,’ he said.

Mr Fox said he helped people who appeared to have broken limbs, and said others were trapped under Christmas stands.

British tourist Emma Rushton tweeted from the scene: ‘Lorry just plowed through Christmas market in #berlin.

‘There is no road nearby. People crushed. I am safe. I am safe’.

She saw the truck rush past her at speed and said it could not have been an accident.

She told Sky News she only missed being caught in the chaos because she had climbed up some steps to take a seat.

Ms Rushton said: ‘The stall that we bought our mulled wine from was completely crushed. People were tearing off wooden panels to get out.’

She added: ‘It was not an accident. It was going 40mph, it was in the middle of the market. There was no way that it could have come off the road and it showed no signs of slowing down.’

Europe on the brink: Streets ‘will become war zones’ as continent descends into crisis

(UK DAILY STAR) — EUROPEAN leaders are said to be preparing for mass civil unrest as multiple catastrophic problems engulf the continent.

It comes after months of warnings from experts – including top military brasses – that massive economic issues, mass immigration, and terrorism will lead to a full-scale crisis.

They have predicted this will affect the entire continent, eventually leading to civil war on the streets.

In December 2015, one of the most apocalyptic warnings came from André Blattmann, the Swiss head of the armed forces.

Blattmann, who left his job just weeks later, said the combination of hybrid wars, the economy, and the refugee crisis would have “unforeseen dimensions”.

He then claimed social unrest was something Europe’s leaders and armies had to be prepared for.

Blattmann was writing in a newspaper just days after France had been rocked by one of the worst terror attacks in the country’s history.

On November 13, 2015, Islamist gunmen went on a shooting rampage at various locations in the capital of Paris, massacring 130 people.

It sparked a wave of ISIS-linked terror attacks in Europe’s major cities, including Berlin, Munich, and Nice.

One of the most high profile was the Nice lorry horror, where Islamist fanatic Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel drove a huge cargo truck into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day in the seaside city, killing 86.

A further 434 people were maimed and injured.

France: Decomposing in front of our eyes

(GATESTONE INSTITUTE) — by Yves Mamou

Four officers were injured (two badly burned) when around 15 “youths” (Muslim gang-members) swarmed their cars and hurled rocks and firebombs at them. Police were aggrieved when the minister of interior called the attackers “little wild ones.” Police and opposition politicians replied that the attackers were not “little wild ones but criminals who attacked police to kill.”

Two students at a vocational training school in Calais attacked a teacher, and one fractured the teacher’s jaw and several teeth — because the teacher had asked one of the students to get back to work.

“This is a warning. These young people did not attack the school by chance; they wanted to attack the institution, to attack the State.” — Yacine, 21, a student at the University of Paris II.

The riot, which lasted for four nights, broke out after the arrest of a driver who did not stop when asked to by a policeman.

This revolt of one pillar of French society, the police, was the biggest that ever happened in modern France. Yet, virtually no one in France’s mainstream media covered the event.

“Everything that represents state institutions (…) is now subjected to violence based on essentially sectarian and sometimes ethnic excesses, fueled by an incredible hatred of our country. We must be blind or unconscious not to feel concern for national cohesion”. — Thibaud de Montbrial, lawyer and expert on terrorism.

France will elect a new president in May 2017. Politicians are already campaigning and debating about deficits, welfare recipients, GDP growth, and so on, but they look like puppets disconnected from the real country.

What is reality in France today?

Violence. It is spreading. Not just terrorist attacks; pure gang violence. It instills a growing feeling of insecurity in hospitals, at schools, in the streets — even in the police. The media does not dare to say that this violence is coming mainly from Muslim gangs — “youths,” as they call the in the French media, to avoid naming who they are. A climate of civil war, however, is spreading visibly in the police, schools, hospitals and politics.

READY TO STRIKE: ISIS has flooded Europe with 1,500 highly-trained terrorists ‘ready to launch attacks’, chilling EU report claims

(THE SUN) — An estimated 5,000 European ISIS fanatics went to Syria and Iraq and 15 to 20 per cent of them died on the battlefield.

Around 30 to 35 per cent have returned with “specific missions,” while the other half remained in the battle theater – which amounted to between 2,000 and 2,500 Europeans.

This means as many as 1,750 may have returned, based on the percentages listed in the report which EU counter-terrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerchove will present to EU interior ministers on Friday.

The report said there were two types of ‘foreign terrorist fighters’ returning.

Around a third of the estimated 5,000 European jihadists have returned to Europe – some may have ‘orders to attack’

Earlier this year, three coordinated suicide bombings occurred in Belgium: two at Brussels Airport in Zaventem, and one at Maalbeek metro station in central Brussels
Last month Belgium expressed concern that jihadists were increasingly returning to Europe

It warned: “It is important to share information on returnees who are already back in Europe, those that are in transit and … (those) still in the conflict zone.”

“There are largely two categories of returnees: those in the majority who will drift back and those who will be sent back on specific missions, which are of most concern.”

Islamic State may use car bombs in Europe, Europol warns

(BREITBART) — Terror organizations including Islamic State are evolving their strategies to attack more soft targets, and may expand their repertoire to the use of car bombs in Europe, Europol has warned.

Islamic State is likely to launch more attacks in Europe as several dozen militants are known to be within the member states, while more may arrive as the jihadist group loses ground in Syria and Iraq, Europol has said in a report.

But whereas previous attacks have utilized firearms or explosives carried on the person, future attacks may adopt methods, such as car bombs, which have previously only been seen in the Middle East.

Islamic State is known to have deployed car bombs in the villages around Mosul over the last few months in a bid to hold the city against approaching Iraqi and Kurdish forces, while further afield the Islamic terror group al-Shabaab were able to slaughter 60 Kenyan peacekeeping troops at an African Union base in Somalia in January after using a car bomb to demolish an exterior wall.

There are indications that European based terrorists are already adopting the method: in September, French police arrested two suspects after a car containing several gas cylinders was found abandoned near the Notre Dame cathedral in central Paris.

Europol director Rob Wainwright said that the scale of the threat proved the need for greater collaboration between states in tackling terrorism.

“The last two years have seen a number of jihadist attacks, several of which have caused mass casualties,” he said. “The scale of this threat has been widely acknowledged in Europe, triggering an intensified cooperation between police and security services across the continent leading to an increase of arrests and plots foiled before terror attacks could be carried out.

“Nevertheless today’s report shows that the threat is still high and includes diverse components which can be only tackled by even better collaboration.”
