The Jihad in Oesterreich

They almost got the US Embassy in Vienna.

Three weeks after the arrest of suspected Jihadists in Austria, today the U.S. Embassy in Vienna foiled an apparent nail bomb attack by a 42 year old Bosnian man. The Bosnian man, who lives in Austria, was stopped with a backpack with hand grenades, nails, and Islamic literature as he tried to enter the U.S. Embassy in Vienna today. The Daily Telegraph reports that Doris Edelbacher, of Austria's counterterrorism office stated "There were a lot of nails in that bag. Had it exploded, it would have had an enormous shrapnel effect". The Bosnian man was detained after the metal detector stopped him and he attempted to flee, and the man is now being questioned.

Today's apparent attempted nail bomb attack on the U.S. Embassy in Vienna is one of a series of disturbing Jihadist activity growing in Austria.

Well, the hills are now alive with the sound of shrapnel-bombs.
