Well,

It was a question of time when we would get hit by serious terrorism.
Today at 10.45 a Turkish man opened fire at innocent people inside a tram.
He left 3 dead and 6 wounded, 3 of them seriously.
The deadly victims are a 19 year old girl, a man aged 29 and a man aged 49. A Soccertrainer and father of 3 children.
After his cowardly act he fled in a red Clio.
Police reacted quickley, soon the car was found and secured and a house (probably the suspects) was searched.
He was arrested by the police around 18.00 after they tracked him when he wired money from his bank account using a friends phone.
2 brothers were arrested but have been released by now, a 3rd suspect is still in custody.
Its not clear why they have been arrested but they might have helped the killer in some way.
All activities for the coming elections have been postponed for the day.
Security level rose to 5, which is the highest level.

At several places railway stations, mosques and schools have extra security.

An attack today in a mosque at Christchurch left 60 people wounded and 49 dead.
The man responsible is a 28 year old Australian, supposedly inspired by Anders breivik..
He also attached explosives on vehicles, but these were disarmed by the local EOD.
After the mosque shooting the man drove off and shot pedestrians on his way.
On the vest he wore were names of Australians who fought against the Ottoman empire.
He also had a camera on his helmet that recorded the shootings.
He left a manifest on internet claiming the responsibility.
He is supposed to be a member of a right wing based group.
The police also arrested two other men and a woman, but their involvement isnt clear jet.
President Adern spoke of a terrible attack.

Another useles attack in a long row of terrorist acts, violence is no way to express your feelings or to enforce your views onto others!

In Heerlen police arrested a man who was armed with 2 knives and an axe.
His target was PVV frontman Wilders.
The police made no comments of the mans nationality, age or where he came from.
As usual the report mentioned the suspect was a disturbed man ( normal police slang for a terrorist)
He was recognized as a potential threath by police scouts.

In december last year an 18 year old man was arrested in Amsterdam on charges of terrorism.
He wanted to kill Amsterdam scholars.
He had several weapons in his posession and tried to get his hands on firearms.
On his phone and pc the police found pictures and films about recent terrorattacks.

Today a prisoner attacked his guards in a prison in Northern france with a knive.
The incident took place in a visitorroom, the perps wife was also there.
Investigatoirs think she smuggled the knife with her.
After the attack the man barricaded himself with his wife in the room.
A police swat team attacked them killing his wife and injuring the man.

Its classified as a terrorist acht because the man shouted the all to famous Allah Akbar.
He has been in contact with Cherif Chekatt ( responsible for the terror attack in Strassbourg) before being radicalized.
Another example that such terrorists should not be locked up but killed where they are.

Market Garden Veterans Association,

RIP Hero of the Waal Crossing T. Moffatt Burriss

We are sad to announce the passing of one of 'our' veterans.

Thomas Moffatt Burriss, a former Columbia area contractor, Republican state lawmaker and American World War II battlefield hero, died Friday the 4th of January 2019. He was 99.
Burriss, who was known as a humble man with a good sense of humor, served as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1945 and participated in some of that war’s heaviest fighting, notably “Operation Market Garden” in the Netherlands.
That 1944 mission made massive use of U.S. and British airborne troops, whose mission it was to capture bridges deep inside Nazi-controlled territory and hold them until Allied ground troops could reach them. Burriss was in the lead elements of the American paratrooper forces, which saw in that operation some of the heaviest fighting of the war.
His and others’ roles in that operation were featured in the movie, “A Bridge Too Far.” Actor Robert Redford played a composite of Burriss and other 82nd Airborne soldiers.
Burriss wrote a book about his exploits called “Strike and Hold.”
The veteran also served as a representative in the South Carolina State House from 1977 to 1992 representing Richland County.
The people of Nijmegen (the Netherlands) will always rememeber him as one of their liberators.

Rest easy soldier!

Strassbourg/Straatsburg,


French police organized a large manhunt for the man who attacked visitors tuesday the 11th at 22.00 at the x-mas market.
A terrorist opened fire on the people visiting the market, killing 3 and wounding 13 of which 5 are in bad condition, of those 5 two have died bringing the number to 5 killed.
Among the dead is a man (45) a tourist from Thailand, his wife is among the injured.
The shooter ( 29 year Cheriff Chekatt) is still on the run.
He is known with the French police and has a large crime history with 20 known confictions including armed robberies.

In total there have been 3 incidents, two firefights with policemen and the attack on the market.
The terrorist was hit in one of those engagements but somehow managed to escape.

In the mean time 100 s of policemen have set up roadblocks and border security has been tightened.
There was a search near the kathedrale in Strassbourg. 5 people have been arrested who are known to have ties to the terrorist.
All other x-mas markets have more security, police is searching through the city.
All other public events like a demonstration are cancelled.
The threat level in France is now at the highest level, long live the religion of peace.

On the day of the attack the police raided his house searching for evidence on a case of manslaughter.
Reports confirmed he was on the terrorist list, together with over 20.000 others.
However he still managed to do the terrorist attack.

Its going to be a dark xmas again......

Wir schaffen das......

16-10-18.

And again, again, again a new day a new attack.
In the city of Koln, this time at the railroad station police ended a terrorist attack that started with arson and resulted in a hostagetaking.
The purp was shot by the police and was hospitalized.
Two people were injured.

The attack occurred in the afternoon at the Mc Donalds at Kolns busy station.
Here the cowardly attack    started when the man threw a molotovcocktail causing minor burns to his first victim , a 14 year old girl.
But the restaurants sprinklers worked well and put out the flames.
The man than fled taking an other woman hostage inside the stations pharmacy.
He taped some gas canisters to the womans body.

After futile attempts to negotiate with the man the police attacked when he wanted to set the woman on fire.
Using flashbangs police charged the pharmacy and shot and hit him several times. At that moment he was armed with a (fake?) pistol.
The terrorist was badly injured and taken to hospital.

Both of his victims were brought to a hospital as well.
Police couldnt give any clues about the man's motives or his identity.
A Syrian passport was found however, belonging to a violent criminal.
Police dont rule out any possibility this was a terrorattack, allthough the man claimed to be a daesh syphatizer.

Terrorist cell dismantled,

In a swift action police swat-teams, defense anti-terror teams and others have raided 7 houses in Vlaardingen, Rotterdam, Huissen en Arnhem.
7 people suspected of plotting a terrorist attack have been arrested.
During the search police found 5 firearms, 100 kilo fertilizer and materials to produce bombvests.

The main suspect is an Iraqi man aged 34, he was allready convicted in 2017 because he wanted to go to Syria to help Daesh.
The group was searching for more stuff like AK47's.
Meanwhile security forces kept them under surveilance.
Its still unclear what target the terrorists wanted to attack but its clear they wanted to strike against a crowded place somewhere in the country.

More to follow......

Seven people including two British tourists were wounded Sunday in Paris after they were attacked by a man armed with a knife and an iron bar.
The attacker was an Afghan national who was arrested.
"Nothing at this stage shows signs of a terrorist nature in these assaults," policesources said, adding that the attacker had targeted "strangers in the street."
Of the seven wounded, four are in a critical condition.
It was not immediately clear if the attacker was among one of the injured.
The incident took place just after 11 p.m. local time (2100 GMT) on the banks of a canal in the northeast of the capital.
A security guard at one of two cinemas on either side of the Canal de l'Ourcq said he saw a man who had already assaulted people being chased by two other men who tried to stop him.
"He had an iron bar in his hand which he threw at the men chasing him, then he took out a knife," he told AFP.
A police investigation has been launched for attempted murder, according to a judicial source.

In Chemnitz a man coming to the aid of a woman was stabbed and died.
An Iraqi and a Syrian were arrested.
And in Kohlen a 22 year old German died of heartfailure after being stabbed by an Afghan.
In this case the German also came to the aid of a woman who was being attacked by three Afghans.

19-08-2018,

Barcelona,

Policeofficers shot a man armed with a knive who entered a policestation in Cornella.
He shouted Allah Akbar according to the police.
The officers tried to disarm the man but failed to do so, when he remained agressive they shot the man.
He was a 29 year old male off Algerian origine, he was just divorced from his Spanish wife.
The investigation now is focussing on the probability that the man had others helping him.
The attack came a year after the incident at Barcelona and Cambrill.
