There’s no doubt that Europe has had terrible issues with radical Islam over the last several years.
You can thank a lax immigration system and political correctness for that.
Now, the State Department is issuing the following warning.
From Weasel Zippers via Breaking 911:
The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the continued threat of terrorist attacks throughout Europe. This Travel Alert expires on September 1, 2017:
Recent, widely-reported incidents in France, Russia, Sweden, and the United Kingdom demonstrate that the Islamic State of Iraq and ash-Sham (ISIS or Da’esh), al-Qa’ida, and their affiliates have the ability to plan and execute terrorist attacks in Europe. While local governments continue counterterrorism operations, the Department nevertheless remains concerned about the potential for future terrorist attacks. U.S. citizens should always be alert to the possibility that terrorist sympathizers or self-radicalized extremists may conduct attacks with little or no warning.
You gotta imagine there is something credible going on behind the scenes here to cause State to issue this warning.

I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t feel great about heading to Europe right now.
They just aren’t taking the threat of radical Islam seriously enough despite being ravaged by attacks on such a consistent basis.
If you do find yourself out there. Be vigilant. And if you see something, say something.
