Mayor of Venice says ANYONE who shouts 'Allahu Akbar' in his city will be shot

Hopefully this goes viral........









Mayor of Venice says ANYONE who shouts 'Allahu Akbar' in his city will be shot by snipers

Luigi Brugnaro claims the Italian tourist hotspot is safer than Barcelona - where 14 people died being run down by a terrorist - saying that 'in contrast, we keep our guard up'

Venice's right-wing mayor has ordered cops to shoot ANYONE who shouts 'Allahu Akbar' - rather than risk a terror attack .

The phrase in Arabic for 'God is greatest' has been shouted in multiple terrorist incidents across the continent, but is more commonly harmlessly used by Muslims during prayers as a reminder of God's significance in their lives.

The Times reports that mayor of Venice Luigi Brugnaro has reportedly decided its an unacceptable phrase to be shouted in the city's St Marks Square.

He claimed Venice is safer than Barcelona - where 14 people died being run down by a van last week.

Speaking at a conference in Rimini, north east Italy, he further revealed the extraordinary order he has given to armed police at one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe.

Brugnaro was applauded by delegates when he said: “In contrast with Barcelona, where they had not set up protection, we keep our guard up.

Not sure which is more impressive, the bold political risk or discerning a single shouter in a crowded tourist area. *In Italian... "please repeat that and wave your arms for me!" Either way he gets credit for saying it.

In Arizona it translates to:


Allahu = "READY"

Akbar = "UP"
