How to deal with lone wolf Jihadis – Part 2

In today’s series I am trying to figure out why countries are so concerned about lone wolf gunmen that have nothing to do with Ialam.   Here is part 2.

Security was dramatically stepped up for police officers and the Jewish community in Britain yesterday amid fears of a terror attack.

Intelligence chiefs are worried that Islamist fanatics could try to copy the atrocities in France last week that cost 17 lives.

Four Jewish people and three police officers were among the dead.

Fears of similar carnage in the UK intensified on Thursday after commandos in Belgium killed Islamic State fanatics who wanted to behead a policeman or a judge. The plot held chilling echoes of the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby outside his barracks in Woolwich.

In other developments:

  • David Cameron and Barack Obama pledged to stand shoulder to shoulder in the fight against terrorism;
  • Intelligence sources said as many as 20 sleeper cells with 180 fanatics could be ready to strike in Europe;
  • Nearly 800 people have been put on a Home Office programme targeting potential extremists;

I don’t want to deliberately overstate the problem, but as you know, the MSM keep telling us all the recent drama has nothing to do with Islam, and is just the result of a few individual nutters.

If you don’t mind me saying so, 800 people on an “extremists” list in the UK alone, and 20 “sleeper cells” in Europe certainly sounds like a serious non-Islamic lone wolf problem to me. 

The Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly been given enhanced security on a public appearance.

Mark Rowley, the UK’s senior counter-terrorism officer, said: ‘The global picture of terrorist activity does give us heightened concern about the risk to the Jewish community.’

The Met assistant commissioner said the murders at a kosher supermarket in Paris, coupled with a rise in anti-semitic rhetoric from extremists, justified more patrols in areas with large Jewish populations, including London, Leeds and Manchester.

Some 263,000 people in Britain describe themselves as Jewish. The country’s 70 Jewish schools have been put on high alert.

The Community Security Trust, which advises Jewish institutions and groups on safety, said: ‘We spend an inordinate amount of money on security, particularly on our schools – as we should. Obviously there’s a change in the threat level because there could be people who might be perversely inspired by what they saw happen [in Paris].’

Talk about perversity – the targeted victims can be identified as Jewish, but the lone wolf gunmen can’t be identified as Muslim as this would unfairly taint Islam.

Bugger me with a pitch fork, this stuff is tricky.

Perhaps I’ll understand more after I write Part 3.
