 Austrian Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, appealed to the European Union Tuesday to make more effort against political Islam, which represented a grave threat to European values, he also said.

Kurz informed the German daily Die Welt in an interview: The EU must focus much more strongly on the problem of political Islam in the future.

He also said: I hope we will see an end to this misunderstood tolerance and that all countries in Europe will finally realize how dangerous the ideology of political Islam is for our freedom and the European way of life.

Actually, he spoke after a day that a known extremist shot fire in Vienna, and killing four people in the first terrorist attack Austria’s in decades. Kurz declared that the EU must, with utmost determination and unity, wage a war against Islamist terror, but particularly against its political base, that is to say political Islam.
