The Italian mayor said that terrorists need to send to Allah, before they cause us harm.

The mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro threatened to shoot without warning anyone who in the famous Piazza San Marco suddenly decide to shout “Allah Akbar”, reports RIA Novosti.

“We in Italy must defeat terrorism, and we strengthen the defense. And I declare that if someone starts to run through Piazza San Marco, shouting “Allahu Akbar,” we’ll shoot him. A year ago, I said we’ll do it after four steps, now say after three,” said Brugnara at the international Catholic forum in Rimini.

“We send the terrorists directly to Allah, before they do us damage,” said Brugnara to the laughter and applause.

Many Italian media interpreted the statement of the mayor of Venice as a provocation. However, he thinks otherwise.

“Unlike Barcelona, where there was no protection, we are alert. We do not challenge . Is that sent a message of support to law enforcement agencies who need to know that we are unconditionally on their side,” said Brugnara later.

“Enough of the politically correct conversations, we need to speak clearly. We must not create the impression that in Italy you can do anything,” − said the mayor of Venice.
