New Year's Eve in Eurabia Typifies the "New" Normal

As New Year's Eve approaches, Europe is on high alert due to the threat of an attack by party-pooping jihadis:
European capitals of the possibility [sic] of a shooting or bomb attack before New Year, prompting police across the continent to increase security measures. 
"Several possible names of potential attackers were mentioned, which were checked, and the investigation based on (these checks) has so far yielded no concrete results," Vienna police said in a statement, some six weeks after 130 people were killed in a terrorist bombing and shooting attacks in Paris. 
"In the days before Christmas a warning was sent out by a friendly (intelligence) service to numerous European capitals, saying that it could come to an attack involving explosives or a shooting between Christmas and the New Year in crowded spaces." 
The police asked Austrians for their understanding of the need for more security controls. 
Extra steps include surveillance in crowded spaces, "especially at events and traffic hubs" as well as intensive identity checks and higher alertness for objects which could carry explosives such as bags or "bicycle frames", it said. 
Vienna police were not immediately available for further comment. 
A spokesman for the German Interior Ministry said it did not comment on particular situations for operational reasons. 
"Germany is still in the crosshairs of Jihadist terrorism," he said, adding the country had reviewed and adapted its security measures, where necessary, following the Paris attacks. 
But in London, a leading British MP urged Britons to celebrate New Year as normal...
Fat chance. There is nothing "normal" about living at a time of resurgent jihad.

That being so, I've rejigged the appropriate song:

Should old, old doctrines of jihad
Allow 'em to go far?
Should old, old doctrines of jihad
Bring on "Allahu Akbar"?

For old, old jihad's new again,
For old jihad's gone far.
They'll kill 'cuz they're supremacists
For old "Allahu Akbar"!
