Venice Mayor: “If Someone Shouts ‘Allahu Akbar’ While Running Through St Mark’s Square, We’ll Shoot Them”


Jihadis often scream this as they commit mass murder in the name of Islam, but Muslims shout it in other contexts as well, and so there has been the predictable reaction to Brugnaro’s words: “The mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, a center-leftist politician, shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ at Brugnaro after his speech to mock him.” And then this doubly predictable follow-up: “But he later apologized if the joke had caused any offense.”

But what Brugnaro was essentially saying was that he was going to fight back, and not lay down and appease the jihadis and Islamic supremacists, as so many others do. Is there anything wrong with that? Plenty, for today’s Leftists.

An Italian mayor has caused controversy after saying that anyone who shouts “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great” in Arabic, in the main square of the northern city of Venice, will be shot on the spot.

Luigi Brugnaro, a right-wing politician, was speaking about extremism at a conference in the city of Rimini. He said that Venice was a safer place than Barcelona, with greater security measures in place….

“In contrast with Barcelona, where they had not set up protection, we keep our guard up. If someone shouts Allahu Akbar while running through St Mark’s Square, we’ll shoot them,” Brugnaro said. “A year ago, I said [they’d be shot] after four steps, now I’m saying it would happen after three.”

He further emphasized his point in Venetian, uttering the words “Ghe Sparemo,” or “we will shoot him.”…

“In Venice, we arrested four terrorists who wanted to blow up the Rialto Bridge, saying they wanted to go to Allah. But we’ll send them straight to Allah before they can do any damage.”…

The mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, a center-leftist politician, shouted “Allahu Akbar” at Brugnaro after his speech to mock him. But he later apologized if the joke had caused any offense.

“It was not my intention to offend anybody, least of all the Muslim community. I did not intend to joke about their religion, nor evoke the tragic events of recent days,” he wrote on Facebook.
