We have come to dread the terror and bloodshed that Easter and Christmas bring. Militant Muslims want to kill the kuffar on their holiest days, their most joyous occasions, so as to maximize the horror and terror of it all. It’s in the Qur’an: “We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.” (3:151)

“Munich: Dark-skinned burst in Easter service and shouted ‘Allahu Akbar,’” translated from “München: Dunkelhäutiger platzt in Oster-Gottesdienst und schrie ‘Allahu Akbar,’” PolitikStube, April 21, 2019 (thanks to Searchlight Germany):
A heavily drunken man, dark-skinned and with a beard, entered St. Paul’s Church in Munich Theresienwiese during the Croatian Mass (Easter blessing), with a bottle of alcohol in hand, lit a firecracker and threw it in the middle of the church and shouted “Allahu akbar.” Everyone panicked and threw the baskets that the Easter meal was in, and ran out screaming. This injured children and adults. The police and its team came and arrested the man. These are shocking pictures that must be shared and not hidden. There were some injured. Many children are in a state of shock.
Merkur Online reports that 24 people were injured.
