Perhaps there's some historical link to the 1683 Battle of Vienna, from which we get the famous phrase "the gates of Vienna"...? It's said that certain Muslims who hold long-standing grievances are the inheritors of grudges that date back centuries.

Why Vienna?

Primary reason is that’s where the murderers happened to be. Islamic ideology tells them everyone who doesn’t agree with must be forced to submit, so it doesn’t much matter where they are - they do these things to each other in places like Pakistan and Egypt when the can’t find infidels to attack.

Secondary reason, as Kevin Kim points out, is the enormity of Islam’s defeats there in 1529 and 1683. The Ottoman Empire failed twice to conquer Vienna, advance through Europe, and replace Western civilization with Muslim theocracy. They are trying a third time.
