We now expect after every Islamic terrorist attack to hear the disclaimer that it had nothing to do with Islam, and that the peaceful message of Islam was “hijacked” by the terrorists. The Western world is by now becoming inured to the slaughter of innocents by Muslim madmen. And more often than not, the victims of this slaughter are Muslim. That this is happening under the gaze of an insouciant Western world says everything about why Muslim fundamentalists are invigorated and believe a universal Islamic caliphate is a tangible objective. But it says even more about how delusional the Western world is for believing that the encroachments upon our democratic freedoms was not a direct consequence of accommodating the Islamic supremacists who walk among us.–Robert Spencer: making things appear what they are not.

STOCKHOLM (AFP) – Stockholm’s usually vibrant city centre was eerily silent on Friday evening with restaurants, bars and cinemas shuttered and streets emptied hours after a truck ploughed into a crowd outside a department store, killing four people and injuring 15.
Stockholmers appeared to be following police advice to stay indoors and avoid crowded areas, with a number of normally-bustling city streets deserted.
The attack occurred just before 3:00 pm (1300 GMT) when a beer truck slammed into the corner of the bustling Ahlens store and the popular pedestrian street Drottninggatan, above ground from Stockholm’s central subway station.
The initial scene was chaotic.
After emergency responders rushed to the scene, several bodies could be seen lying on the ground covered with orange blankets. Shattered glass was scattered on the ground near a large blood stain on the asphalt.
