Terrorism Engulfing Europe

In Ansbach, Bavaria, there was apparently a bomb attack on Sunday. The Bavarian interior ministry told Reuters, “At present we stand, it is not an accident.” It summarized the evidence that it was a “deliberately provoked explosion.”

This bombing followed the horrific attack on two men from Hong Kong on a passenger train in southern Germany. The men were left critically injured after battling an Afghan teenager who was armed with an ax and a knife as they tried to save other family members.

Then there was an attacker in Reutlingen, armed a machete, who killed a pregnant woman and injured two others. The man was arrested nearby a few minutes later. The suspect had previously quarreled with the woman in the area of the central bus station. They arrested a 21-year-old asylum seeker from Syria, who was already known to the police because of multiple encounters.

This only adds to the discovery made in June of a major weapons cache in Germany. This discovery was a vast arsenal of “weapons of war” that was found near a radical mosque in Germany, adding to fears that terrorists are well equipped to carry out attacks across Europe. The weapons were found in a refrigerator after a SWAT team operation in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Local police warned of the possibility of more Islamic State sleeper cells holding similar arsenals in Germany. Obviously, there is a clear and present danger of arming violent fundamentalists in Germany.
