Armed Man With A Knife Rams Car Into Pedestrians In Heidelberg; Attacker Shot By Police

In what may be the second vehicle-based terrorist attack in Germany in as many months, moments ago the German police reported that a man rammed his car into a pedestrian area in a central square in the city of Heidelberg, injuring three people – one seriously – then fled armed with a knife, and was subsequently shot after being tracked down by officers.

    Driving a car into a crowd in Europe is called a “Vehicle based terrorist attack”. When the identical act takes place in Israel everybody shrugs and mutters “Damn Zionists”.

      The bad thing about this latest terrorist attack was that the police only wounded the rabid dog.

        My thoughts exactly… clearly they didn’t shoot him enough.

    A gang of asylum seekers from Gambia brawled with a group of Albanians at a refugee centre in Germany in the latest shocking violence to hit the nation.

    Three people were left injured and taken to hospital after the brawl erupted at 12pm on Thursday at the Patrick Henry village outside of Heidelberg.

    Well, that makes a change from Somalis vs. Afghans.

    What else could it be, but a terror attack? People who accidentally run into people don’t then get out of the car with a knife (or gun). That’s definitely a Muslim thing.

    UPDATE: The badly injured pedestrian has died.
    A German, he was a 73-year-old pensioner.
