Welcome to the club, Re: German Government Issues ‘Concrete’ Terror Warning, Spiegel Online International, November 18, 2010

The Government of Germany has announced that it has credible evidenceĀ  terrorist attacks are being planned to take place in the country around the end of November. Security has been increased accordingly, especially at airports and railroad stations, and the added security will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Even though there has never been a successful terrorist attack on German soil she has a large and growing Islamist community and Germans no longer believe they are immune from such events.

The Americans, British, French, Spanish, Dutch, Israelis (especially the Israelis) and numerous others learned a long time ago that they are most certainly not immune from terrorist attacks by Islamists and each has attempted in their own way to keep these attacks from happeningĀ to them, with varying degrees of success. The Germans have now learned that they are every bit as vulnerable as anyone else, at least in Western Europe anyway.

With 82 million German people added to the list of potential victims perhaps there will be enough of a critical mass to produce a co-ordinated response by the West against the scourge of Islamic terrorism and the doctrine which makes it possible, Islam. That will happen sooner or later because Western countries will come to realize it is the West as a whole that Islam is at war with, not just individual nations. In unity there is strength, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, we are all Americans, British, Israelis or whoever the latest victims are etc.etc.

In the meantime, welcome to the club Germany.
