With the fear of Corona going away people go out on the street again, as do our terrorists.....

Reading stabbing:

Three people were killed and at least three others sustained serious injuries in a series of stabbings in Forbury Gardens in Reading town centre at 7pm on Saturday evening.
There were several witnesses to the attacks, which took place as people were relaxing in the park, and disturbing videos have emerged on social media showing scenes of victims receiving resuscitation treatment.
Khairi Saadallah, a 25-year-old Libyan national, was initially arrested on suspicion of murder, but he has now been rearrested under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000, giving police greater powers of detention.
Counter-terrorism Policing South East have taken over the investigation from Thames Valley police after the attack was declared a suspected terrorist incident.
Saadallah was on the radar of the security services in the middle of last year, sources have told the Guardian. The intelligence agencies believe Saadallah had mental health problems, the sources said.
Security sources said Saadallah had been granted asylum and had previously been in prison for a relatively minor offence, not a terrorism conviction.
The first named victim has been identified as James Furlong. He was in his mid-30s and was head of history, government and politics at the Holt school in Wokingham.
Furlong was described as a “kind and gentle man” who had a “real sense of duty and cared for each and every one of our students”.
Counter-terrorism officers were seen among a group of officers entering a block of flats in Reading, where the suspect is understood to have been living, at about 11pm on Saturday.
The prime minister, Boris Johnson, chaired a meeting at 9am on Sunday in No 10 to be updated on the latest developments. The home secretary, Priti Patel, was present, as well as police and security officials.

Johnson later said he would make changes to the legal system to prevent other attacks from happening if “there are lessons to be learned”.
The head of counter-terrorism policing, Metropolitan police assistant commissioner Neil Basu, has said there is nothing to suggest anyone else was involved and police are not currently seeking anyone else as part of the investigation.

One of the patients admitted to Royal Berkshire hospital has been discharged while another remains in a stable condition under observation, a spokeswoman has said.

France, Romans sur Isere,

2 people killed, 7 inured 2 of them severe, attacked by another follower of the religion of "peace".
This goes on even in times of trouble!

The attack started in the towns centre. The first victim was a man, his throat cut while his wife and child were watching!
After that the coward entered a tobacco store, a butchery and a supermarket where he cut multiple victims before the police could stop him.

The town lays in the south of France close to Lyon.
The coward responsible is assumed to be 32 years old and came from Sudan.
He shouted the well known Allah Akbar and asked for the police to shoot him, instead he was arrested Bedroefd

Gelsenkirchen,

Police shot and killed a man with a knife.
The man, a Turkish criminal, with a long history of violent crimes assaulted a policecar with a stick.
When the officers came closer to arrest him he threatened the officers with a knife.
During the assault he jelled Allah Akbar.
The officers were than forced to shoot the man.

Paris subburb,

In a park at Villejuif a man (Nathan C. 22) stabbed several civilians.
2 of them are seriously wounded, 1 of the victims died of his wounds.
The attacker was swiftly identified and shot to dead by police officers.
Allthough at first the police spoke about a 'mentally disturbed' person they now say it was a terror attack.
After searching his house they found a plan for the attack, and many items that belong to islam.
Witnesses also claimed the man shouted Allah Akbar.

My thoughts go out to the victims.

And it happened again..... another attack in London.
Today a man stabbed several pedestrians on London bridge, 2 of them died 3 people are wounded.
Police shot the men who was carrying a knife and wearing a suicide explosive vest.
Several people filmed the incident.
On one of the movies its visible that a group of 10 people tackles the stabber and tried to hold him down, a man is seen walking away with the attackers knive.
Few seconds later police arrived and killed the stabber out of fear he might set of the vest, a vest which appeared to be fake.
The stabber was a 28 year male from Stefforshire named Usman Khan who was just released from prison.
He was sentenced to 16 years in jail in 2013 because his involvement in planning an attack on the stock exchange.
His release was "automatic"  according to a policespokesman.

It proves again that shooting these cowards is the best option, the wont "heal" from time in prison.
Well done London police!

A man dressed in military clothes opened fire at a synagoge in Halle (near Leipzig)
The man could not get into the synagoge, he opened fire at the door and tried to blow up the door.
Security measures prevented him from entering.
Outside he shot a passing girl and a man in a Turkish restaurant.
After that he fled the scene.
He has been recognized as a Neo nazi.

A new form of terrorattacks,

This time in Frankfurt Germany, a man from Eritrea pushed two people from a platform in front of a train.
A mother (40) and her son (Cool the mother could jump back but was unable to help her son.
He died before her eyes.
A thrid person which he tried to push could also barely save himself.
By standers took the man in hold and hand him over to officers arriving at the scene. Whereas a 9mm would have been better IMHO.
Among the people on the platform were many children, many of them need psychological help.
The traindriver was also in shock and taken to a hospital.
Its the second time this week, when a man was pushed for a train and died to.
16  The Military / Dutch Army: past and present / TMPT on: 26 May 2019, 14:19:26
The Two-day Military Performance Trials (TMPT) is a sporting military performance event for all military personnel of armed forces, involving teams of two servicemen.
It requires a varied amount of physical and military skills but it is not a competition!
This year the event takes place on 28 and 29 May 2019, its the 71st Two-day Military Performance Trials (TMPT)
The TMPT takes place annually on the Tuesday and Wednesday before Ascension Day.
Professionals and reserves servicemen of all armed forces can enter this event, which takes place around the military base Harskamp.
The TMPT is organised by the TMPT-committee,in which the Royal Association of Netherlands Reserve Officers (KVNRO) closely co-operates with the Physica training/Sports Organisation of the Royal Netherlands Army.
The TMPT is affiliated with the Bureau of International Military Sports (BIMS).
Successful completion of the Trials entitles competitors to the Cross of the Royal Netherlands Association of Reserve Officers, the so-called TMPT-Cross. This decoration may be worn on the military uniform.
Most basic military skills are tested, marching, shooting, plotting a and reading a map, using coordinates, hand grenade throwing and much more!

17  The Military / Dutch Army: past and present / Re: Safety plans on: 26 May 2019, 13:58:02
Several plans have been made and implemeted after the commission took office.
Their are now additional safety measures at shooting ranges.
These measures have to be followed.
- Personell cannot ignore the rules anymore regarding safe areas. There position has to be known to the safety official at all times.
- Foreign military personell has to do a brief training procedure with our weapons before being able to shoot at a contest or exercise.
- All foreign military personell has to be escorted on the range by an instructor, this is a change to the old situation were teams of 2 could shoot at the TMPT with 1 instructor present.

After the mali incident the investigators came to conclusion that the 60mm mortar rounds were not properly (if at all) tested, the munitions were also kept in bad storage.
The responsible secretary had to resign. (VVD secretary mevr Hennis-Plasschaert)

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. One of the severe wounded (man aged 74) died at the 28th making him the 4th deadly casualty.
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 the killer 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 down 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.

In Vienna, police arrested a 42 year old Iraqi citizen on suspicion of terrorism in Germany
The man living in Vienna over 20 years and has Daesh symphaties.
He is suspected of 3 sabotage attempts at the German high speed rail network.
In octobre last year he hung a steel cable over the rails between Munich and Nurnberg.
In December 18 he destroyed a part of the electric cables around Berlin.
And his last attempt was in februari when he laid concrete blocks on the rails at Dortmund.
All sabotage acts were discovered on time an nobody was hurt.
He was caught because the Daesh writings lead the police to him.

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!
