They were screaming “Allahu akbar.” Doesn’t that make them…Islamic jihadists? Well, yes, but what about the Crusades?
“Report: Gunmen open fire at Israeli embassy in Mauritania,” from AP (thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist):
Six gunmen opened fire on the Israeli Embassy early Friday morning, trading fire with guards before fleeing screaming “Allah Akbar,” witnesses said.
The six men arrived by car and regrouped in front of a discotheque that is just beside the embassy, said Hamza Ould Bilal, a taxi driver who was parked outside the club, called the VIP. He saw them pull out their automatic weapons and scream “God is Great!” in Arabic, before assailing the embassy, he said.
Yes, but no doubt they were Automatic Weapons of Peace.
