Robert Gehl reports that Europe is under siege.
The number of terrorist attacks on the continent is simply staggering; not to mention the ongoing riots and violent demonstrations in Europe by refugees and immigrants. What we have here is a continent that is reeling from its own liberal migration policies.
The deadly terrorist attack at the the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is just the latest in a wave of attacks across Europe in the last few months. Note how the rate of terror attacks has increased dramatically in the last year – coinciding with Europe’s liberal refugee policy. Here’s a chronological list of the major attacks, a list that just keeps growing:
