The tragic attack in Berlin, Germany where a terrorist drove a truck into a crowd of civilians at a Christmas market has left fifty injured and twelve dead. It is being classified as a terrorist attack. People are lauding President-Elect Donald Trump’s response to the attack on our European ally. While scorning out going President Obama’s response.
After the attack he tweeted,
“Today there were terror attacks in Turkey, Switzerland and Germany – and it is only getting worse. The civilized world must change thinking!”
His transition team also released an actual statement about the tragedy saying,
“Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of today’s horrifying terror attack in Berlin. Innocent civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday. ISIS and other Islamic terrorists continuously slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad. These terrorists and their regional and worldwide networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth, a mission we will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.”
Trump has called on the clear and continuous attempt by terrorists to target Christianity and western civilization. He referenced the murder of Russian ambassador in Ankara, Turkey as well as the attacks in Switzerland, Paris, and Nice.

While the President-Elect was releasing this statement the actual president had not released one of his own despite still being in office. Instead he was continuing his golfing on his Hawaiian vacation with his wife and kids. He did not release a statement until long after the attack and by then he also refused to call it an attack by radical Islamic terrorists.
This attack is very similar to the Ohio and Bastille Day attacks as it was not an incident of bombs or guns being used but instead seemingly benign objects or things. In all three instances a car one large truck was used. In Ohio a machete was used after running down the victims. Clearly we are all at risk not understanding or knowing when or where the next attack will be.
