It seems as though a day doesn’t go by without some sort of terrorist attack in Europe, and I’m almost certain that this is only the beginning. For me the actions of the trucker madman in Nice hit particularly close because a few weeks ago I was strolling in the same area where he drove into the crowd. Before me and four buddies of mine left for the UEFA European Championship, many friends and family members asked us whether we were afraid. I wasn’t and none of my friends were. It’s not that I’m a particularly brave person, I’m just somehow able to not worry about things I can’t influence. And individual terrorism is something none of us are able to influence. No gate, no detector, no gun will protect you from being the victim of a surprise attack by a crazy person. Forget weapons of mass destruction. A truck, an axe, a knife or poison are the new weapons of choice. And if you think that I shouldn’t be giving tips to terrorists, I’m not. Did you know that both Al-Qaeda and ISIS have English-language magazines? “Dabiq” belongs to ISIS and “Inspire” is the propaganda piece of Al-Qaeda. And if you’re imagining horrible quality drawings on a few sheets of Xeroxed printing paper, I’m going to have to disappoint you. Imagine “Time” magazine mixed with a bit of “People” and you get “Inspire”. It had a feature in 2010 about the “ultimate mowing machine” – a truck equipped with blades – and to this day continues to publish its ideologies, which are available with a few clicks on the internet. We still mustn’t change the way we live our lives, because that would be victory for the fanatics, but what we do need to change is how seriously we as a country or as the European Union are taking these threats. Because they sure as hell mean business when it comes to killing the infidels.
