Spanish police shoot Muslim who sparked a terror alert by shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ at a border checkpoint with France

Police have shot a man who sparked a terror alert near Spain’s border with France by shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ at a checkpoint.

Officers opened fire on the man, believed to be a Frenchman of north African origin, after he began to shout in Arabic when the vehicle he was travelling in was intercepted at a motorway toll near La Jonquera on the Spanish side of the border.

He was hit in the leg and rushed to a nearby hospital.

He has undergone an operation at the hospital – the Doctor Josep Trueta University Hospital in Girona – and his life is not said to be in any danger.

    Something about not having the right to yell ‘Fire’ in a crowded theatre, comes to mind.

    He was probably misunderstood. That seems to be the new explanation for everything by the elites.

    Now we know that “Allahu Akbar” really means “Shoot Me Now” …..

    Blazer, thanks for the good-news post. It is a pleasant, chilly day in Fredericton, and I am watching a good Big Ten football game, and this posted article makes the day even better.

    That should be legal to shoot anyone screaming that abomination.
    Shot on sight and without question.
