The Hague.

While festivals are being held to celebrate our freedom a man stabbed 3 people infront of a restaurant.
2 bystanders and a man on a bicycle, the wounded have been brought to a nearby hospital, none of them is in direct danger of dying.
While doing that the man (dressed in typical islamic clothing) shouted Allah Akhbar.....
However according to the police and the meir the 31 year old man (how surprising, a Syrian refugee) was only a mentally disturbed man.
Now where did we hear that before......

May 16,
New reports showed up with information that the police was warned about possible terrorist actions by the arrested man.
Nothing has been done with the report, a human error according to the justice department.
meanwhile everybody still speak about a "confused" man which has become a synonime for terrorist actions in the Netherlands.

It doesnt end.... another attack in paris.

This time caused by a Tjetsjenian aged 20 years aold.
Around 21.00 he drew a knife and stabbed at people randomly killing 1 and injuring 4, of whom 2 are in critical condition.
Many people hit the ground when police arrived afraid of getting caught in gunfire.
A policeofficer tried to take the man down with a taser, after that failed the attacker still wouldnt give up.
The police than shot him dead.
French president Macron reminded the French people about the good work of the French army against the terrorist threat and defending freedom.
"We will not stand down", he said.
The attack was claimed by DAESH.

Another bloody attack on our citizens, this time in Canada.

A man drove into pedestrians with a white van in northern Toronto on Monday, killing 10 and injuring 15.
Alek Minassian, 25, was not previously known to authorities, police said, adding that the incident appeared deliberate but no motive was clear.
Mr Minassian was arrested after a tense standoff with a police officer.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the incident a "senseless attack and a horrific tragedy".
The officer who arrested Mr Minassian was praised for not opening fire during a standoff with the suspect, who claimed to be armed and pointed an object at the officer.
Investigation is underway, police are looking for a motive.
So far any ties with islamic terrorism are lacking.
No terror organisation has claimed responsibility either.

Today april 15 at the age of 74 Ermey died because of Pneumonia.

A quote from his manager:

Statement from R. Lee Ermey's long time manager, Bill Rogin:

It is with deep sadness that I regret to inform you all that R. Lee Ermey ("The Gunny") passed away this morning from complications of pneumonia. He will be greatly missed by all of us. It is a terrible loss that nobody was prepared for. He has meant so much to so many people. And, it is extremely difficult to truly quantify all of the great things this man has selflessly done for, and on behalf of, our many men and women in uniform. He has also contributed many iconic and indelible characters on film that will live on forever. Gunnery Sergeant Hartman of Full Metal Jacket fame was a hard and principled man. The real R. Lee Ermey was a family man, and a kind and gentle soul. He was generous to everyone around him.
And, he especially cared deeply for others in need.
There is a quote made famous in Full Metal Jacket. It's actually the Riflemen's Creed. "This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine."
There are many Gunny's, but this one was OURS. And, we will honor his memory with hope and kindness. Please support your men and women in uniform. That's what he wanted most of all.

Semper Fi, Gunny. Godspeed.

Police special forces units in Germany have arrested six men, one of whom was suspected of planning knife attacks at the Berlin half-marathon on Sunday.
German national newspaper Die Welt reports that the main suspect is said to have “planned to kill spectators and participants” and possessed two knives that had been specially sharpened on purpose.
Welt claims the main suspect was linked to Anis Amri, the Tunisian man suspected of hijacking a truck and deliberately driving into a crowd of people at a Berlin Christmas market in 2016.
Amri was shot dead in Italy on December 23, four days after the terror attack that killed 12 people and injured dozens of others.
Welt says the main suspect in the foiled Berlin half-marathon plot “wanted to avenge the death of Amri.”
The police confirmed the arrests to Welt, but no further details were provided.
The arrests were made just one day after Germany’s Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said the government intended to do the utmost to protect its citizens. Reuters quote Seehofer to have stressed that: “We have again experienced that… absolute security is unfortunately not possible.”
Seehofer made the comments in Münster, where a 48-year-old man steered his Volkswagen bus into a group of people on Saturday, injuring 20 and killing two. The man then shot himself dead.
He is not believed to be linked with IS.
Earlier in december 2017 there were arrests among friends of Anis.

Anti-Semitic slaying of 85-year-old prompts outcry in France

By Jeffrey Schaeffer and Sylvie Corbet,


Like many who survived Nazi horrors, Mireille Knoll embraced life, eating out and going to the theater despite limited means. Even as age and Parkinson’s disease took their toll, she delighted in receiving guests — until one of them allegedly stabbed the 85-year-old to death because she was Jewish.
The brutal killing in Paris last week has raised uncomfortable questions about resurgent anti-Semitism in France.
I thought I was going to die on the spot. I cried all the tears in my body and I thought of her. She didn’t deserve this,” her anguished son, Daniel Knoll, told The Associated Press Tuesday, near the Paris public housing project his mother called home for most of her life.
How can one do that to anybody? The police revealed she was stabbed 11 times.”

Mireille Knoll was killed Friday in her apartment, which was then set on fire. On Tuesday, prosecutors filed preliminary charges against two people for murder with anti-Semitic motives, including a neighbor Knoll hosted regularly, to lessen her loneliness.
View of the apartment door of Mireille Knoll, 85, who was was slain last week, in Paris, France, Tuesday, March 27, 2018. Police seals, hearts and a photo of her are pasted on her entry way. Knoll had been stabbed several times and her apartment set on fire. Two suspects have been given preliminary charges of murder with anti-Semitic motives over the death of an elderly Jewish woman, a French judicial official said Tuesday.
As Knoll’s family gathered in Paris to attend her funeral on Wednesday, horrified French leaders and activists called for people to take to the streets to protest racism.
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo urged all Parisians to join a silent march in memory of Knoll on Wednesday, and politicians across the political spectrum pledged to attend. French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted his “absolute determination to fight against anti-Semitism.”
For Knoll’s family, the killing was a cruel coda to her long life.
At age 9, she fled Paris to escape a notorious World War II roundup of Paris Jews. French police herded some 13,000 people — including more than 4,000 children — into the Vel d’Hiv stadium in 1942 and shipped them to the Auschwitz death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. Fewer than 100 survived.
A family member with Brazilian citizenship helped Knoll and other relatives escape Nazi-occupied territory for southern Europe and then Canada. She returned to France only after the end of the war.
Over the years her grandchildren and other French Jews moved to Israel, but Knoll stayed in her beloved Paris, living nearly her whole life in the modest apartment on Avenue Philippe Auguste.
There was nothing to steal. My mother was poor,” her son said. “Her credit card? She would have only been able to withdraw 100 euros. She had no money on her account.”
Authorities have not released the names of the two men in custody but have said the chief suspect is a 29-year-old with a past conviction who lived in the same building.
Daniel Knoll said the suspect had lived there since he was 7.
My mother had a thirst for knowledge and meeting new people and talking to them and that’s what killed her,” he said.
On Tuesday, a photo of Knoll hung on her door, surrounded by paper hearts and a police notice saying the apartment was the subject of a judicial inquiry.
On a gate outside the building in eastern Paris, neighbors hung up a tribute poster. Candles flickered next to piles of flowers in her honor.
Smoke residue from the fire still stained her apartment window.
Knoll’s granddaughter, Jessica, lashed out at the attackers who “burned all of our memories, burned my entire childhood that I experienced there, in photos, albums, souvenirs.”
Speaking Tuesday in Herzliya in central Israel, Jessica Knoll stroked a ring her grandmother gave her on her last visit to Paris, and remembered her irrepressible energy.
“She used to run faster than us,” she told the AP.
Daniel Knoll remembered his mother as talkative and vivacious. In a home video she could be seen raising a glass and declaring, “Lechaim!” — “to life!” in Hebrew.
When she could still walk, he said, “she was going to restaurants, to theaters, to cinemas to see movies. She likes so much to read, she likes life so much. All those people who know war, they like life, maybe more than these crazy people” who killed her.
Mireille Knoll’s husband was deported to Nazi concentration camps, and their wartime experiences colored their children’s lives.
Yet, despite a resurgence of anti-Semitic violence and vandalism in recent years, and anti-Israeli sentiment among many young French Muslims, Daniel Knoll said he didn’t feel targeted for being Jewish.
Granddaughter Jessica, however, warned that “today it is my grandmother and tomorrow it will be a grandmother, a grandchild, someone else’s father.”
Jessica Knoll, who emigrated to Israel as a child 20 years ago, urged the French to “stop making excuses and see reality for what it is.”
The French Jewish group CRIF compared Knoll’s killing to that of Sarah Halimi, 65, who was beaten and thrown from her balcony last April. That murder was reclassified as anti-Semitic last month. The suspect is in a psychiatric hospital.
France’s government presented a plan earlier this month to fight racism and anti-Semitism, focusing on social media and prevention in schools. It also wants to change French law to force internet platforms to detect and remove illegal content.
An annual national count of racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim and anti-Christian acts — most involving threats — dipped in 2017 compared with the year before. But anti-Semitic violence increased by 26 percent, and criminal damage to Jewish places of worship and burial by 22 percent.
