Bosnia, you know — where all the Muslims are moderates and you’re a greasy Islamophobe if you dare suggest otherwise. How did this misunderstanding of Islam get into pro-American, moderate, peaceful Bosnia, of all places? Did Nerdin Ibric somehow get hold of “Islamophobic” writings?
“Gunman carries out ‘terrorist’ attack on Bosnian police station,” DW, April 27, 2015:
In northern Bosnia, a gunman stormed a police station, killing one officer before dying in the crossfire. Authorities have now launched an investigation into what they are calling a “terrorist” attack.
The attacker, later identified by Bosnian authorities as 60-year-old Nerdin Ibric, carried out the attack in the town of Zvornik on Monday evening.
Shouting “Allahu akbar,” which means “God is great” in Arabic, Ibric opened fire on the personnel. Two police officers were also wounded in the attack.
Regional President Milorad Dodik later told Bosnian Serb TV: “It is clear that motives behind this terrorist attack are religious and terrorist…It is certainly not an isolated act.”
The imam of the local mosque reportedly condemned the attack….
Oh, well, then, nothing to see here.
Roughly 40 percent of Bosnia’s 3.87 million inhabitants are Muslim. Although they are known to practice a moderate form of Islam, intelligence that over 150 Bosnians have travelled to Syria and Iraq to join “Islamic State” fighters has raised concerns about Islamist extremists returning home to carry out terrorist attacks.
