Isis has claimed responsiblity for a machete attack on two Belgian police officers, describing the assailant as a “soldier of the caliphate” in a statement issued via its Amaq news agency.

The attacker, who has not been named by the Belgian authorities, was shot dead as he attacked two policewomen outside the main police station in the southern city of Charleroi.

The Isis media arm, citing a “security source”, said the man acted in response to calls to carry out terror attacks in Europe. On Sunday afternoon, the Belgian prosecutor said the attacker was of Algerian origin and had a criminal record.

    Let’s not jump to conclusions here. After all, anyone could wield a machete, scream allah akbar and death to the infidels.

    And Western political parties continue to suck up to islam. The National Post website reports that the Jew hating leftists in the Green Party have won at the convention. It is now Green Party policy to boycott Israel. And the leftists in Canada are lining up in the comments section to agree with this.

    ISIS claims responsibility, and the western elitists claim that they are wrong, and it’s we, islamophobes who are responsible.
