via: New York to install 1,500 Security Barriers after vehicle attacks – h/t Blazing Cat Fur who titled it The cost of Islam. Some are calling these ‘Allah Akbarriers.”
The mayor of New York City has announced plans to install 1,500 steel street barriers to prevent vehicle attacks.
Bill de Blasio said the protective barriers were part of a $50m (£37m) investment in security infrastructure.
The move comes after two vehicle attacks in 2017 that killed nine people in total.
The new permanent barriers will replace temporary concrete blocks that were put in place after the incidents. [They were only put in after the Muslim attack]
“I want to tell you these are the most cowardly kind of attacks – when someone with a vehicle ploughs into a group of innocent pedestrians. It’s disgusting,” Mr Blasio said at a press conference in Times Square, near where one of the vehicle attacks took place.
“But we know there are some out there who mean to do us evil and we will protect against it.”
Last Halloween, a 29-year-old man drove his truck into people on a cycle path in Lower Manhattan, killing eight people and injuring 11.
In May, another driver rammed his vehicle into the crowds on sidewalks in Times Square, killing a 18-year-old and injuring a further 20 people.
Temporary concrete blocks were installed in Times Square and Lower Manhattan in the last few months following the attacks in the city and others worldwide. [As noted above, they were not installed after the May attack, they were only put in after the Muslim attack]
“That was necessary to immediately secure those areas in light on these new trends we’ve seen,” Mr Blasio said. [Necessary because the new trend is Muslims driving vehicles into crowds of people trying to kill as many as possible]
“But we knew we needed long-term solutions, we needed permanent barriers.”
The permanent barriers to protect Americans don’t belong in our city streets. They belong on our borders. As we noted in an earlier post on NYC installing concrete anti-jihad barriers, “The Islam Tax is just another cost of importing Muslims to America.”
The BBC doesn’t dare mention that the man who killed 8 in Lower Manhattan was a Muslim and diversity refugee.
