BOLLARD BUSINESS IS BOOMING in Europe and other Western nations where deadly Islamic ‘vehicle jihad’ attacks have become the new normal
The following article appeared in Bare Naked Islam on May 1st
In major cities of the West, thousands of concrete and steel bollards are popping up along streets and sidewalks, as well as in front of concert halls, stadiums, train stations and virtually any place that attracts large numbers of people. Funny how these big, ugly bollards were never deemed necessary before Europe opened its borders to mass Muslim migration.
Since May has been declared Muslim Heritage Month (by Muslims themselves), be sure to thank a Muslim for making it necessary for cities to put these large eyesores in public spaces.
CBC (h/t Marvin W) The bollards are used to protect pedestrians from being run down by Islamic terrorists in trucks and large vehicles – the new weapons of mass destruction – designed to kill and maim as many people as possible at a very low cost.
No need to build bombs or acquire a costly arsenal of deadly weapons, most of the large trucks used by vehicle jihadists are local rentals.
Worldwide, the number of deliberate attacks using vehicles against pedestrians has been on the rise. Since 2006, more than 200 people have died and 1,000 injured in these attacks around the world. Virtually all are linked to Islamic terrorism.
In New York’s Times Square, Claire Weisz an architect and urban designer, showed CBC News changes made to protect pedestrians, such as bollards and granite slabs.
“When a car came through here in a deliberate act, that car was impaled on two of these bollards. The bollard didn’t go anywhere and the car didn’t go any further.””You’re looking at a Times Square today that went through a complete replanning.”
Brad Done watched carefully as a machinist drilled a hole into a bright yellow metal tube about a metre long and 10 centimetres across at his Surrey, B.C., business, Reliance Foundry. The pole is called a bollard, designed to be set into the ground to keep vehicles away from people and buildings.
The demand for this product is so strong it’s become the main focus of his business, which once forged metal into tools and other products for B.C. industries.
“The bollard business for us is thriving, it’s now our No. 1 sales product.” Some bollards are just ugly metal tubes filled with concrete, Done said.
Increasingly, though, designers are looking for decorative barriers made from cast iron or stainless steel. Some serve double duty as bicycle racks.
