Reactions to the Media Calling it a ‘Van Attack’

Denial of terror in the name of Islam is the standard response. It only encourages the enemy. Car ramming attacks were used by Muslim terrorists in Israel, yet the world would not stand up strongly in Israel’s defense. Now those attacks are happening across the Western world. The world should have come to Israel’s defense. Those in the Muslim world are attacking us all for the same reason, yet the Western elite prefer to deny that as well.
