On Wednesday two American soldiers were shot dead on a military bus at Frankfurt Airport. Arid Uka, a 21-year-old Kosovo native, has confessed to the murders of Senior Airman Nicholas Alden, 25, and Airman First Class Zachary Cuddeback, 21.
German officials say Uka approached the airmen boarding the bus, asked for a cigarette, and struck up a conversation. After one of the soldiers confirmed they were headed for Afghanistan, Uka followed them onto the bus, cried “Allahu akbar,” and began shooting. “He was trying to stop them,” said prosecutor Rainer Griesbaum, who described Uka as “Islamist influenced” and said the shootings underscored the dangers of “virtual jihad.”
Though it appears Uka acted alone, the details that have emerged since his attack leave little reason to doubt his motives. On his Facebook page he expressed his approval for jihad and displayed ties to dozens of hard line Muslim people and organizations, including the deputy chairman of the Salafist “Invitation to Paradise” group, which German authorities are looking to ban.
Officials cited Germany’s privacy laws as one reason why Uka had not been under surveillance, and his story makes a compelling case for revisiting those laws now. But Berlin at least appears to suffer no illusions about the threat posed by the world’s Arid Ukas: “He is the type of terrorist we worry most about—the unknown threat,” an intelligence official told the Journal.
By contrast, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley at a press briefing last week struggled to answer whether or not Uka’s attack even constituted “terror”: “Well, I mean, you know, for example, was the shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords a terrorist attack?” Perhaps, if you still think Jared Loughner was inspired by Sarah Palin’s election maps. But all available evidence suggests that Loughner’s massacre was the product of a deranged mind with little if any coherent political leanings. A more apt comparison to Frankfurt would be the slaughter at Fort Hood in 2009, which was also reportedly preceded by a shout of “Allahu akbar” from a killer whose background showed ties to radical Islam.

Incidents like these will become more and more frequent, as we are currently living in the end times. Mankind’s decline will continue, and the believers of the false god allah will go to even more desperate measures murdering those that do not share their belief.
2 Timothy 3:1
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.
We must continue to preach the Word of God, and spread the truth about Jesus Christ Our Savior. And as believers in Christ, we must always be prepared spiritually to meet Our Savior.
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
