Take-Away Terror

I have heard of drive-by killings before, but an Islamic terrorist in Italy has attempted what may be the world’s first drive-thru killing.

An apparent attempt to blow up a McDonald’s drive-in restaurant in northern Italy was foiled on Sunday but the suspected terrorist died when his car exploded with him strapped inside.Witnesses said a man, later identified as Moustafa Chaouki, a native of Casablanca, drove his Fiat Tempra into the queue of cars waiting at the restaurant in Brescia, 100km east of Milan, at 10 pm. His car contained four cylinders of kitchen gas, each with a capacity of more than 70 litres.

Police believe he opened the taps of the cylinders, filling the car with gas. Witnesses said he then suddenly opened the driver’s door, and the car detonated into a fireball.

A woman in the car directly behind the Fiat, told the daily, Corriere della Sera: “I had just said to my boyfriend, ‘Don’t you smell something strange?’ Then there was the blast.

Apparently, this woman was Ann Coulter.

And the city’s anti-terrorism boss is right on top of things.

Yesterday the assistant prosecutor of the city, Roberta di Martino, who is also the city’s anti-terrorism boss, would only say of the incident: “It was not an accidental occurrence.”

Ya think? I wonder if it was the four cylinders of kitchen gas and the man’s Muslim name that clued him in.

Meanwhile, while other fast food restaurants are getting nervous, rumour has it that KFC has no such worries.
