Meanwhile, In Germany

Earlier today in Germany, there was an attack in a surgeon's office on the doctor and his receptionist.  The attacker was a patient, his father and his brother.  The father held a large knife and shouted "Allahu Akhbar" while threatening to behead the doctor.  Fortunately, the police arrived in time to stop the execution.  According to reports, the patient, a 19 year old man, had broken his leg many weeks ago.  The surgeon had set the leg, but the patient was unhappy with the pace of the healing process.  He came into the office to complain.  The surgeon tried to show the patient some exercises he could do to accelerate the process, but the patient was angry and stormed out.  A short time later, the patient returned with his father and brother.  They attacked the receptionist and threatened to kill her.  She had a heart attack.  When the surgeon came to investigate, they jumped him and forced him to his knees.  The father demanded an apology to his son and told the doctor that he would be beheaded.  That's when he started shouting "Allahu Akhbar".

Okay, before you tell me this is not Islamic terrorism, let me say that I agree.  It is not the common place type of Islamic terrorism.  Nevertheless, why is it that these crazies decided to scream Allahu Akhbar before murdering a doctor who had treated the son?  What possesses these people to do such things?

The truth is that under a proper definition of terrorism, this attack comes within that boundary.  It may not be ISIS inspired, but it is still terrorism.

I'm sure if anyone at the Democrat convention mentions terrorism today, they would tell you that today's attack in Germany is no big deal.  It's just "doctor's office violence".  But there's a major problem all through Europe (and America too) of these crazy attacks.  They have to be stopped, and that will not happen if our response is to put a smile on our faces and pretend they never happened.
