And the Muslim war on freedom rages on and spreads. Jihadis attacked two hotels in a beach resort town in southern Ivory Coast packed with European tourists. Men, woman and children are reported as victims after gunfire erupted at an Ivory Coast beach resort popular with Western tourists.

Local reports also speak of the assailants being masked and carrying grenades as well as guns, and some unconfirmed reports suggest they may have shouted “Allahu Akbar”  –Allah is greater [than your G-d].

This mimics the monstrous beach attacks in Tunisia in June 2015.

ISIS has been urging fellow Muslims worldwide to mimic the slaughter in Tunisia and attack on the beaches of resorts where Westerners are vacationing, enjoying their lives.

A Florida Muslim tried to do just that in Key West on July 4 weekend  to “cook American[s] … in cages.”

The government said the victims include five men, five women and one child, but did not specify if these reflected deaths or injuries.

At least seven people have died in a gun attack on an Ivory Coast beach resort popular with tourists, according to reports.

A witness said four attackers opened fire with rifles as they entered the L’Etoile du Sud (Southern Star) hotel in Grand-Bassam, which is around 25 miles east of Abidjan.

The attackers were “heavily armed and wearing balaclavas” and they “fired at guests”, a witness told AFP news agency, adding that the large hotel had been “full of expats in the current heatwave”.


Witness Luc Gnago told Sky News the shooting had ended and that the beach was now “empty” apart from soldiers and “a few people looking after the bodies”.

Mr Gnago said he had seen six bodies on the beach – one of which he thought was “an assailant” – and one in the hotel, which he described as “a white man”.

Residents told of hearing the gunfire and venturing from their houses, before realising what was happening and returning to hide in their homes.

Meanwhile, a dozen ambulances headed to the scene, joined by military vehicles with heavy machine guns and armed traditional hunters known as Dozo.

An AFP journalist reported seeing around a dozen people, including an injured Western woman, being evacuated in a military truck.

A witness told French broadcaster BFMTV he saw “the body of a European woman” and that “two or three” hooded shooters were involved.

It is not yet clear if the attackers are affiliated with any particular militant group.

Over the past few months, attacks have been launched on luxury hotels in the capitals of Ivory Coast’s neighbours Mali and Burkina Faso, leaving dozens of people dead and West African nations re-assessing security in the face of the growing threat from jihadists.

Grand-Bassam is home to around 80,000 people and has UNESCO World Heritage status due to the architecture from its French colonial past.

    Who in their right mind would vacation in Africa?

    • arturo

      White European “liberals”, think that they are immune to Islamic terrorism; and then, they’re dead!

      • BlackTar100 .

        How do you know they are “White European “liberals?”

        I mean my grandparents were openly racist and conservative and still visited “black” countries.

    • Juan Doroteo Carrio

      Africa has always been a tourist spot for Europeans I suppose because of it’s proximity and their need to prove they’re not racists.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Being dead proves they are dead, nothing else.

            Dead terrorists are “cute” in their own special way.

            They make great door stops and mats! But you have to change them frequently. After a while the stench, becomes unbearable!

            Wonder if they can be embedded in resin?

        • harbidoll

          it can prove they are idiots

          Being dead proves they are not Racist!

      Could not have said better myself

      I’ve always wanted to see the Egyptian pyramids and do a real safari- not Six Flags. I wouldnt go near the Eastern Hemisphere now.

      I’d be safer in the South Bronx and or Detroit.

      • VLParker

        I would still consider a safari in southern Africa. I wouldn’t go north of Zambia, though. The pyramids, alas, are off limits. I would love to see them.

    • CleanSideUp

      I was thinking the same thing!

    • steelraptor from Saturn

      Plenty good reasons to vacation in Africa. Heard of you know elephants, lions, antelope, hippo, giraffe, zebra, gorilla etc. etc. The plains of Africa, beautiful beaches, forests, caves. There is no place like Africa, its beauty is not surpassed anywhere.

      Depressing that billrowland got 9 thumbs up.

      Go vacation in Las Vegas, maybe that’s what you would all prefer. Or the Hamptons. Sheesh.

      • Jonah

        Africa has places to visit that are full of life and beauty. More and more of those places though are dangerous to visit because of the full on jihad taking place.

      • John Marchant

        There are loads of places like Africa and far friendlier and safer. Beaches, oh come one i can think of loads outside Africa which are far nicer.

        • PeriShKis

          Easy. Where there are no moslems

      • billrowland

        Military dictatorship regimes, Robert Mugabe, Hutsi’s and Tutus killed a million people, mass violence, kidnappings, slavery genocide, South Africa has a 90% rape rate and not to mention this article where vacationers are being slaughtered at a popular resort. Sounds like a great continent.

        • Rocinante44

          idi amin, tse tse fly, birthplace of AIDS, somali pirates, the lost boys of the sudan

        • VLParker

          90% rape rate? Not hardly. It’s about 0.132%, which is outrageously high, in fact the highest in the world in 2010, but nowhere near 90%.

          • billrowland

            http://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/nov/25/south-african-rape-survey Three in four men admit to raping. There is a 90% chance a woman will be raped in her lifetime.

          • VLParker

            Uh….that’s a survey of a very small sampling of people and it doesn’t pertain to the country as a whole. Hardly scientific statistics.

          • joker

            1 in 3 statistically might get cancer. I used to live in SA in my teens and it was very safe. Given it was under the Apartheid System. Today some places in Capetown, Johannesburg or Durban might be tricky. But that is the same with London, Paris or New York.

          • billrowland

            Murders in SA have gone from an average of 7000 per year during apartheid to an average of 24,000 per year post apartheid. The world health organization did a UN funded study regarding rape in South Africa’s townships. They concluded that a woman has a 90% chance of being raped by age 25.

          • helga

            UN ??
            Discredited BS.

          • billrowland

            I would think they would have downplayed those numbers because the UN is what caused the fall of SA

          • BlackTar100 .

            South Africa is a mess man.

            “”The country has one of the highest rates of rape in the world, with
            some 65,000 rapes and other sexual assaults reported for the year ending
            in March 2012, or 127.6 per 100,000 people in the country.””

            I wonder what 2015 was like.

            ….and this.

            “The country has some of the highest incidences of child and baby rape in the world with more than 67,000 cases of rape and sexual assaults against children reported in 2000, with welfare groups believing that unreported incidents could be up to 10 times higher.”

            Like, WTF!

        • harbidoll

          epic-center of slavery, thruout history & continues today! Open slavery.

        • steelraptor from Saturn

          Sure but where is it utopia? Latin America can be hellish too and India, doesn’t mean it’s not worth visiting. It’s like saying don’t go to America because Detroit and Baltimore are terrible, as if it were the whole of America.
          So you avoid the real danger zones. I’m from South Africa and have lived and worked in much of Africa. You ever set foot there? Yeah thought not.

          And a 90% rape rate is nonsense.

          • billrowland

            The world health organization studied poor Townships cross SA, and poorer neighborhoods, and interviewed men and women regarding rape. They found that 90% of women under 25 had been sexually assaulted or gang raped and 25% of men admitted to engaging in rape.

          • donojibway

            America used to be a good place to visit, but probably not after Obama is done with it, he has stirred up racial tension and will have left it with a crippling 20 trillion dollar debt, the kind of unsustainable, unpayable, debt that has destroyed dozens of major countries in recent and past history.

    • Rocinante44

      amen

    • Lars Waardt

      Narcissistic comment. It’s not just Africa where holidaymakers get killed. Remember the bombings in Bali? Loads of tourists got killed. Were they crazy for going there? No… Remember 9/11, many tourists got killed. Crazy for going to New York? No. Remember the Thailand bombings recently? Tourists! Crazy? No. Paris bombings? Tourists? Yes. Crazy? No. List goes on and on. Don’t be a moron and open your eyes.

      • John Marchant

        Yes of course there are people being killed all over the world. The middle east has about the highest number at the moment of terrorist atrocities. I have traveled extensively around the world and can honestly say the only place i have never felt not safe was Sub Saharan Africa, that’s not saying its not possible else where but its a damn sight more likely there. Not just because of the terrorists and Jihadi’s but the total lack of anything resembling security.

        • Lars Waardt

          Understood, but looking at worldwide murder statistics ranked per city (thus lacking some sort of security), only four cities (out of 50) are listed in the African continent. The rest of the list is filled with cities in North, Middle and South America. Yes, Detroit, Baltimore and New Orleans have higher muder rates than Durban, South Africa. Not even mentioning holiday haven Acapulco, Mexico.., sunkissed Recife, Brazil…, or even dreamy Jamaica. I understand your point of view, but let’s not forget that security and/or safety in places we think that are well organized, are in fact even worse.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Jamaica is bad. I seem to remember the Jamaican government stating that tourists cannot consider themselves safe in some parts of Kingston.

      • billrowland

        Yes. New York is a dangerous shithole as well I would never go there.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      You don’t think muslums could pull of the same attack anywhere in the USA or Canada? The beach is really the perfect place to plan an islamic terrorist attack — because how many people carry guns on the beach?

      • billrowland

        No armed guards at resort, no guns allowed period. that is why it is more dangerous.

  • jimbopeep

    Man that is funny. Those ass clowns thinking allah is greater than God Almighty. But to prove their idolatry for a child molesting prophet and inbred “god” they have to kill innocent people. That is as sad as islam itself it seems.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      The demon of islam is weak and stupid, those who worship it are violent, weak and stupid.

    • Rocinante44

      they are of the devil

    • http://scherado.livejournal.com/ scherado

      Funny? The only thing I see funny is that you believe that you have the correct “God”. Do you know what I mean?

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Countries that appreciate tourist money, had best clean up the muslim problem. When a country is known to be a target of islamic murder, no one will go there. Countries that take measures to deal with murderers, will profit.

    • Rusted Out

      I took a vaca to Bali a few years after that club bombing. Most of the resorts and bars were empty. Their economy is mainly reliant on tourism, so you’re hassled to buy cheap goods by street vendors mercilessly. I won’t be going back.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        There is a high cost to countries that will not control and eliminate terrorism.

  • CleanSideUp

    Again YOU CAN NOT COEXIST WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO KILL YOU! Silly liberals.

      “Silly liberals”?

      Silly YOU for repeating leftist propaganda about the milder variety of leftist totalitarians being “liberals”.

      Fool, turn off Fox Noise. Tune out Rush Blowhard. And stop repeating leftist lies. Doing so makes you appear to be a parrot, and you shouldn’t want to look like a common right-wing parrot, not even when you’re SHOUTING.

      • TexasJester

        What propaganda? A big part of islam and the unholy koran deals with killing kafir (infidels). A kafir is one who isn’t a muslim. It’s called jihad. You would know this if you would actually READ the unholy koran.

        This has nothing to do with Rush or Fox – or CNN, MSNBC, abc, nbc, cbs, or any other news outlet, right wing or left wing. It has to do with the core tenets of islam.

      • War_Wolf

        What the hell does Limbaugh and Fox News have to do with the promotion of “leftist propaganda”; on the contrary, they vehemently oppose it. Your argument is incoherent and thus, invalid.

  • PIGBERT

    looks like cultural enrichment, no?

  • John Marchant

    Oh come on its Africa, the only thing they were ever good at was breeding and then killing. Anyone who holidays there, im sorry but you take your life in your hands.

    Maybe our governments should stop handing our money to these African despots and let them sort their own problems out.

    Sub Saharan Africa is mostly a dump and why anyone wants to go there is beyond me, ive been there many times but i would never pay to go there.

  • βιβλία

    This event reminds me of a scene in “Platform”, a novel by Michel Houellebecq. The English translation was published in 2003, or so, and the scene is used to criticize not only Islam but also contemporary capitalism and secularism.

    I encourage adults to read the novel, but be forewarned that it’s rather pornographic. It’s also somewhat sad, as Houellbecq stories tend to be. Still, the smut serves to satirize a decadent, corrupt civilization which is gradually liquidating itself through its commitment to secularism and vice.

    • joker

      However, themuzzrats were the only one who threatened him (Houellebecq) because of his book. Not the capitalism or secularism. Recently he basically said sorry to the muzzrats.

  • http://disqus.com/ 0349 JAT

    Muslem savages are pulling this crap on unarmed men, women and children around the world everyday. Then then they say that we have got it all wrong. When we call them on it, they call us racists and say we are Islamophobic. Then they try to tell us that Islam is a religion of peace.
    Then the next day or so another atrocity is perpetrated by the muslem savages on civilized people somewhere in the world, and nothing is done. THIS HAS TO STOP….

    Have you noticed all the ads in the media and the mail, that want you to take European vacations? The travel industry could not pay me enough money to visit Europe, the Middle East, Africa or any other foreign destination! Including Mexico, South or Central America, Canada or the Caribbean Islands. Gun Free Zones are just not safe!

    • joker

      That is a very limited options you got. But when I go to a gun zone somewhere in the Bible belt I can be killed, too. Not very likely but it is possible. There are always looneys about.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        Comparing the bible belt to muslum states like Pigistain, Somalia, Iran, Bangladesh, the Islamic State? What a f’ing maroon.

        • joker

          Just to comment. I believe you did not get my drift. By all means I rather hang out any time somewhere in the bible belt then any pigistan places but no place is safe. One cannot play safe on this planet. Even staying at home is not that safe.
