The recent terror attacks carried out by Islamists in and around Barcelona, Spain, are continued proof that the global war on terror continues, even though many leftists and media refuse to acknowledge this “so-called” war’s existence.
These global attacks, including the ones in Nice, Paris, Madrid, London, and Manchester, have all been carried out by individuals declaring their actions as being committed in the name of Islam.
Why do you think that in most, if not all past terrorist attacks, the jihadis shout out the term “Allahu Akbar!”
The arabic term means “Allah is Greater,” and according to 9/11 World Trade Center attacker, Mohamed Atta, yelling this term “strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.”
“Shout, ‘Allahu Akbar,’ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.”-Mohamed Atta
What is more disturbing is the refusal for many of these same media outlets and American politicians to refuse to call the attacks as being carried out by elements within the Muslim community, or Islamic terrorists.
It appears as if some Republicans may be joining Democrats in refraining from casting the blame on the Barca attacks on radicalized Muslims.
Radical Islamic Terrorism must be stopped by whatever means necessary! The courts must give us back our protective rights. Have to be tough!

Outside of President Donald Trump and Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, very few Republicans have gone on the record to call the acts of terror as being committed by jihadists in the name of Islam.

While many Democrats like Florida Reps. Lois Frankel and Alcee Hastings offered their condolences to the victims and families of the attacks, appear to refuse to do even that.
According to their Twitter and Facebook social media platforms, Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Al Lawson, and Ted Deutch, all failed to respond to the attacks in Catalunya, Spain.
Even Spain’s PrimeMinister called the acts of terror as being committed by “jihadist terrorism.”

Wasserman Schultz, especially Deutch, instead harped on President Trump’s remarks that followed the violent Charlottesville, Virginia white nationalist rally.
To be fair, the controversial Wasserman Schultz once pushed back against then-President Barack Obama’s ask to stop correlating acts of terrorism with Islam.
Unfortunately what happens particularly with the global war on terror and the Islamic fundamentalists that are combating and leading it, we (Jews) are the crux of the reason that they are engaged in that fight.-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)
Meanwhile, the global war on terror continues, as the radicalization of Muslims marches on.
