Europe has been in the grips of a maniacal terror rampage in recent months, and the long running Rock Am Ring concert is its latest victim.
German concertgoers were preparing for a weekend of hard rock and heavy metal at Rock Am Ring, a concert series that has been in production for decades. Billed as one of Germany’s most popular festivals, the Friday crowd was well over 8,00 when word came in that the grounds would need to be evacuated.
The reasoning for the evacuation was stated by authorities to be a credible threat of radical Islamic terrorism.
“Up to 87,000 festivalgoers have evacuated from Rock am Ring music festival held near Nürburg, Germany, after police received information of a ‘concrete’ terrorist threat.
“Together with a police officer, festival organizer Marek Lieberberg took to the main stage at around 9pm to ask fans to make their way towards the exit. In a statement on Facebook, the festival’s organizers urged all those attending to leave the site in a ‘calm and controlled manner’ after being warned of a ‘terrorist threat.’
“’We hope that the festival will continue tomorrow. Thank you for your cooperation,’ the statement added.
“In a separate statement, local police said that ‘investigations are currently under way’ regarding ‘concrete indications, which cannot exclude a possible terrorist threat.’ In the wake of a recent attack at a music concert in Manchester, all precautions are being taken for the event, with 1,200 police officers already deployed at the scene.”
Europe’s terror pandemic has been ongoing for years, coinciding in intensity with the relocation of thousands of middle eastern refugees who are fleeing the violence in Syria and other locales. During this mass exodus, liberal leaders around the world, led by Germany’s Angela Merkel, have relaxed yet quickened the process by which immigrants can enter their nations. In Germany and France, this has led to an ugly uptick in radical Islamic terrorism, as jihadists have admitted to exploiting these weakened defenses to position their Holy War troops in sovereign nations.
