Police in The Netherlands have arrested a Turkish national after a Monday morning shooting on a tram in the city of Utrecht.

“The suspect, identified as Turkish-born Gokmen Tanis, 37, allegedly gunned down three people and wounded five others before fleeing in a car, officials said,” according to The New York Post. 

The number of wounded has risen to nine throughout the course of the day.

By midmorning, authorities were calling the shooting a terrorist attack. Police spokesman Bernhard Jens later said they were not “100 percent sure” of the motive. Other reports have claimed that the attack was a domestic dispute, and that the gunman had one specific target.

“The shooting sparked fears of a terrorist attack, but the man’s relatives have told Turkish news agency Anadolu that Tanis fired at a relative because of ‘family reasons,'” the report said. “He then shot others who tried to help the victim, they told the news outlet.”

A Turkish news agency made contact with Tanis’ father, who has reportedly not spoken to his son in 11 years. Mehmet Tanis lives in Turkey’s Kayseri province, and said that his son should be held responsible if he did, indeed, commit the attack.

“If he did it, he should pay the penalty,” he reportedly said.

Poland’s Nationalist President Declares Election Victory Over Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger

A victory for European conservatives and nationalists.

Published

on

Polish President Andrzej Duda declared victory at a campaign rally following the initial exit polls in the nation’s presidential election on Sunday, as exit poll results showed him narrowly leading against Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.

Initial exit polls showed Duda, of the national conservative Law and Justice Party, leading by a slim margin of 50.4% to Trzaskowski’s 49.6%. Final results are expected Monday, but Duda’s campaign is apparently confident enough in their victory to declare triumph in the election.

The Polish election had included a national debate on cultural issues, with Duda accusing Trzaskowski of supporting the introduction of western-style homosexual political movements into Poland. Duda, a continental skeptic of the European Union broadly comparable to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, had described LGBTIA+ ideology as “more destructive” than the Soviet-style Communism many Poles had experienced in the 20th century.

Trzaskowski was also scrutinized for his extensive links to western political elites, having received a scholarship from globalist oligarch George Soros and attending the California Bilderberg Conference.

If Duda’s claim of election night victory holds, his reelection as Polish president will serve as an embarrassment to the bureaucrats of the European Union, potentially forcing them to come to the table and negotiate concessions with Central European leaders such as Duda and Orban who insist upon their national sovereignty.

Duda is thought of as a European ally of President Donald Trump, having been the first global leaders to visit the White House after the coronavirus pandemic. Poland is also one of the few NATO countries to meet their treaty spending commitment, spending more than 2% of its GDP on its armed forces.

Thank you to all my fellow Poles who voted for me and cast their votes. I want to thank you with all my heart because this turnout shows how much you care about our country,” said Duda at the election rally.
