    European Interior Ministers held a virtual meeting on Friday on the fight against terrorism on the 5th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. Ylva Johansson spoke to Swedish news agency TT after the meeting.

    “Islam is not a threat. Religion is not a threat. Terrorists are a threat. We must fight against extremists who have an Islamist appearance and the extreme right. Migration is not a threat to Europe either,” she said.

    The commissioner also criticized the idea of training imams in accordance with European values. “I do not think that the training of religious leaders falls within the framework of the competences of the EU”, she said.

        Certainly not me, and none of the relatives of those who were murdered in the London Transport bombings in July 2005, the Manchester Arena bombings, the Westminster Bridge murders and the London Bridge murders etc. All were religiously motivated murders by Muslims. And of course the around three thousand people in the 9/11 mass murders. The perpetrators of that massacre were all Wahhabi Muslims. The London Transport bombers were known to attend to prayers at Wahhabi mosques.

      Islam has only been a threat to Europe for the last 1300+ years, with countless attacks from huge armies of jihad-conquest sweeping into Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Malta, Central Europe, the Balkans, and Ukraine/Russia, killing, raping, robbing, and enslaving tens of millions of Europeans, to smaller yet still deadly and horrific acts of terror and other crime, and now, deliberate demographic hijra-jihad in the guise of ‘refugee’ flight. It’s beyond question the number one historical and ongoing threat to Europe, putting all others into the shade by far in most cases. (Other) Mass-migration is also certainly a threat with countless historical precedents.

      This woman is either an utter idiot, or an evil liar. Possibly both at once. Denial of not only clear reality but survival-critical fact is not only gross stupidity, but wretched wickedness if at all deliberate. In the case of Kalergist-Satanist EUrovile elites, we know it’s not just naivety.
