Zero Tolerance - Venice Mayor Orders Cops To Shoot Anyone Who Shouts 'Allahu Akbar'

Venice's right-wing mayor has ordered cops to shoot anyone who shouts 'Allahu Akbar' - rather than risk a terror attack.

The Times reports that Italian mayor Luigi Brugnaro claimed that his city Venice was safer than Barcelona - where 14 people died being run down by a van last week.

"In contrast with Barcelona, where they had not set up protection, we keep our guard up."

Speaking at a conference in Rimini, north east Italy, he further revealed the extraordinary order he has given to armed police at one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe.

“If anyone runs into St Mark’s Square shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar’, we will take him down.


"A year ago I said within four paces, now within three. I will say it in Venetian: ‘Ghe Sparemo’ (We will shoot him)."

The Mirror additionally reports that he went on to recall the arrest in March of four suspected jihadists who allegedly planned to kill hundreds of tourist by blowing up the world famous Rialto bridge.

"They wanted to go to Allah. But we'll send them straight to Allah before they can do any damage."

Last night Brugnaro stirred the pot even more:

"I have never been politically correct, in fact I am politically correct and that’s why we also need a naval blockade against people coming into Italy from north Africa."

Nobody from the Venice police department has commented.

We can only imagine the uproar this would have created in America - does Italy have CNN?

Venice is a great place. Like stepping back 200 or so years. I couldn't put much money on the Carabinieri (Italian armed police) doing much as they mostly stand about modelling their latest sunglasses.

The German crooks coordinated the NGOs (partially funded by Soros)floating just off the Libyan beaches. They picked them up and motored them to Italian ports where the mafia got a cut of the profits the EU put up for "humanitarian aid".  Then the French closed their borders and Italy was stuck with all these African economic migrants.

Surprised Gatestone and their ilk didn't take credit for this one! I gotta say, I'd be more impressed if the mayor camped out in the park with some NVGs and a .45 and greased them himself, instead of ordering the Carabinieri to do it while primping for political points with the presstitutes...

Every once in awhile there is a politician who you can admire. Even if it is after Gentiloni and Merkle had the Barbary Coast and Somali pirates invade the place.

Why is he a 'right wing' mayor? Does he believe in limited government? As most Europeans are socialist, I think that this 'right wing' moniker is almost certainly misplaced. But then when have facts ever mattered when trying to demonize political opposition?

Not really fair to point to Barcelona and then say, "It can't happen to us!".  I mean, yeah, there are no cars in Venice!  Maybe the jihadis could try a boat ramming, but they don't seem to score terribly high in the creativity department.

Man, those 72 virgins these suicide bombers are 'rewarded' with are going to be getting really busy soon.  You know, has anyone had the heart to tell these ill-informed jihadists that the virgins are well hung African males??
