In Burkina Faso, living with the risk of Muslim terrorism is the new reality

OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) — Gaetan Santomenna lost his wife, his 9-year-old son and his mother the night jihadists attacked his cafe in Burkina Faso’s capital before striking a nearby hotel.

Now a year and a half later, he’s reopening doors to the popular restaurant as a sign of resistance to the growing extremism in this West African country.

“Being afraid does not help you escape danger. You aren’t safe anywhere. That’s the madness,” he said, shortly before the Cappuccino Cafe was due to open to the public again Thursday.

“I owe it to my children, to my family, to all those who have left us,” Santomenna said. “To accept defeat would be to not pay homage to them.”

    “You aren’t safe anywhere.” Not if there any muslims where you are.

    Coming to a Town near you.
    Toronto has a serious problem with the way it was set-up because there are 2 main Rivers where each as where you enter the City and we rely on bridges.
    All the muslim terrorists have to do is wait for a major Tourism event to have hundreds of thousands more people inside the River zones and then blow-up key bridges on the Humber river and Don river as well as a few along the 401 .
    This contains a huge number of Infidels to slaughter for allahs peace by crashing a plane in to the CN to wipe out the Communication equipment inside it while military vehicles can’t get into the city to fight the Jihadists.

    Trudeau is flooding canada with jew-hating homophobic muslim refugees where their children will be steeped in hatred for us and many will go jihad as the Toronto-18 muslims wanted to do even when they were born here but still oppressed.

    Ah the twins, Islam and Communism, are the gifts that never stop giving. In this case it is Islam, but its twin is just as bad.

    It looks like Paris after a Fryday night…
