Remember the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark where Indian Jones pulls out a revolver and calmly shoots dead a huge Arab threatening him with a scimitar? Things like that don't actually happen, do they? Oh yes, they do, even in this day and age. Just today, in fact, Indonesian cops sent to Paradise not one but four sword-wielding Muslims who attacked a police headquarters in Sumatra.
In the latest in a spate of Islamic militant attacks across the Muslim-majority country -- see "The family that prays together slays together" and "'Allahu akbar!' - another Muslim family, another terrorist attack" -- a spokesthingy for the national police said four men attacked officers after driving a minivan into Riau province's police headquarters. The driver of the vehicle was arrested trying to escape. One officer, who was hit by the minivan, died and two were injured.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statements carried by its Aamaq news agency. Police identified the group as "members of an IS-affiliated group of NII," referring to Negara Islam Indonesia, also known as Darul Islam, an Islamic group that aims to establish an Islamic state in Indonesia.
As reported on WWW (see links above), suicide bombings Sunday and Monday in Surabaya, Indonesia's second-largest city, killed 26 people, including 13 attackers. Two families carried out the attacks, using children as young as 7. Earlier this month, six officers at a high-security detention centre on the outskirts of Jakarta were killed by Islamic militant inmates who took control of part of the prison and held hostages until being overwhelmed by police.
The flurry of attacks, and the tactic of using children as suicide bombers, has shocked Indonesians, who fear that IS has inspired a new wave of violent extremism in the country of more than 260 million. Contrary to what the (((controlled media))) would have you believe, ISIS is not finished, and its activites are not confined to the Middle East or Asia. Atrocities such as these could happen anywhere. Maybe even in your country... in your city... in your neighbourhood. Just because the "progressives" have declared Islamophobia a "hate crime" doesn't mean the jihadis aren't out to get ya!
