Why is this happening? Why are tanks in the streets of major cities, guarding Christmas markets? Why is the entire Western world on edge? Because European and North American authorities have admitted large numbers of Muslim migrants into their countries, among whom are unknowable numbers of jihad terrorists, and allowed Sharia enclaves to grow in which hatred of unbelievers and the necessity to wage war against and subjugate them is taught. Christmas is under siege because there are large numbers of Muslims in the West. The responsibility lies with those who admitted them without regard for Islam’s doctrines of religious warfare and supremacism.
“World on terror alert: Security ramped up in major cities over Christmas after Berlin lorry tragedy sparks fears of another attack on the West,” by Anthony Joseph and Richard Spillett, Mailonline, December 20, 2016 (thanks to The Geller Report):
The West has been put on increased terror alert over the festive period following the Berlin lorry tragedy.
Security has been ramped up in major cities including, London, New York, Paris, Vienna and Dusseldorf, as fears grow of another ‘ISIS’ attack on the West.
Tanks were seen in the streets of Budapest, Hungary, and soldiers were pictured at the Christmas markets in Antwerp, Belgium.
The Metropolitan Police has said it is to review its plans for protecting public events over Christmas and New Year following the ‘awful incidents’ in Berlin and Ankara.
Twelve people were killed and 48 injured after a lorry ploughed into a crowded Christmas market in the German capital in what police believe was a deliberate terrorist attack.
The carnage came hours after Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was gunned down at a photography exhibition in Ankara.
Policemen patrol over a Christmas market in Dusseldorf, western Germany, as security measures are ramped up after a deadly rampage by a lorry driver at a Berlin Christmas market.
In a statement today, Scotland Yard said they have ‘detailed plans for protecting public events over the Christmas and New Year period’.
The force said: ‘These already recognise that the threat level is at ‘severe’, meaning an attack is highly likely, and have considered a range of threats, including the use of large vehicles.
‘As a matter of routine, as a precaution, we review our plans after attacks overseas, and we are doing so at present following the awful incidents in Berlin and Ankara last night.’
Visitors to London’s Winter Wonderland have raised security fears over the huge crowds queuing to get into the attraction in the wake of the Berlin Christmas market attack.
The annual event in Hyde Park draws in millions of visitors from around the world to its fairground rides, Christmas markets and food stalls.
But after the attack on a similar attraction in Germany yesterday, revellers fear the long, penned-in queues waiting to get past security could be hit by terrorists.
A terror expert warned crowds waiting for security checks can ‘present a target’ if not properly spread out or dispersed.
Police are stepping up security measures at markets in France after 12 people were killed and at least 48 injured when a truck ploughed into a busy Christmas market in Berlin, Germany. vents
One visitor told MailOnline that the large numbers of people arriving at the attraction every afternoon and evening were ‘herded through a huge pen’ as they waited to be let in.
She feared the huge queues ahead of security checks could themselves become a target, adding: ‘You just feel like a sitting duck for terrorists’.
Professor Anthony Glees, of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at Buckingham University, said Christmas markets are specific targets for jihadists and called for tight security….
