I think the planet should adopt this policy. Nip it in the bud, I say. You want to play the terrorism game, then you will immediately pay the price.
Venice's right-wing mayor has ordered cops to shoot ANYONE who shouts 'Allahu Akbar' - rather than risk a terror attack .
The phrase in Arabic for 'God is greatest' has been shouted in multiple terrorist incidents across the continent, but is more commonly harmlessly used by Muslims during prayers as a reminder of God's significance in their lives.
The Times reports that mayor of Venice Luigi Brugnaro has reportedly decided its an unacceptable phrase to be shouted in the city's St Marks Square.

I am not a linguistic expert, but based upon observation I must assume that phrase means "YOU DIE NOW!!!"
Then you would be incorrect in your assumption. It actually translates as "Allah is Greater" or "Allah is [the] greatest".

Of course it is a right wing thing, so demonic and bad.
Islamism is a right wing thing.
The entire religion is.
But trying to fit terrorism into standard ideologies of right and left wing is a huge mistake.
