Lone wolf Jihadis return home – 3 dead in raid… so far

There is no end in sight to this mess.  And at the risk of being labelled far-right again, can someone figure out a way other than to simply export or kill these people?

Belgian police tonight shot dead two suspected Islamic State jihadists believed to have returned to Europe to carry out terrorist atrocities.

Shots and explosions were heard, including machine gun fire, as officers moved against an alleged cell in the eastern town of Verviers, which is some 70 miles from Brussels.

Officials said the targets were a jihadist cell who had recently returned from Syria with orders to carry out terrorist attacks in Europe.

One Flemish paper was reporting they intended to attack a police station.

The raid, one of a dozen against suspected jihadis in Belgium today, follows three days of violence in nearby France, which left 20 people dead, including three Islamic State and Al Qaeda linked terrorists.

Belgium, which has long been home to a large Muslim population, is believed to have the highest proportion of citizens who have left to fight in the Middle East, after Britain.

Not the sort of exports you are proud of.

But what sort of idiotic idea is to let them come back at all?   Once you’re a Jihadi, doesn’t that trigger some kind of reasonable concern that someone should not be allowed over the border again?  

The suspects immediately opened fire on security forces when they closed in on them near the city’s train station, Magistrate Eric Van der Sypt said in Brussels.

He said there was no link at this stage to the Paris attacks, and that the raid is the result of an investigation that has been underway for a few weeks.

‘These were extremely well-armed men,’ with automatic weapons, Mr Van der Sypt said.

The magistrate said more anti-terrorist raids were underway in the Brussels region and Verviers, adding that Belgium’s terror alert level was raised to its second-highest level.

The operation was part of an investigation into extremists returning from Syria, authorities said.

There seems to be an awful lot of proactive action against people who have nothing to do with Islam.

The only good radical Muslim is one that’s enjoying his 72 virgins.

    The Belgian authorities seem to be on to this effectively whereas NZ has a Navy which is prevented from taking out an old trawler or two. Something awry here?

    • Luis Cannon

      Pop-gun navy?

    • Simon Brown

      To be fair, they just ran out of fuel. Otherwise they would’ve done something. Honest. Maybe next time eh?

      • Luis Cannon

        Meanwhile their refueling tanker was on ceremonial duties I suppose?

      • Cadwallader

        No I don’t wish to be “fair.” The Navy dicked around down there for days without apprehending these guys who were sailing under a flag of convenience. NZ had the opportunity, much as Belgium had, to send a message that we’re not all leftie progressives too scared to cause offence. So what that it was in international waters? Do the deed then explain later if forced to do so. I hope the Navy has sufficient fuel to float in to Waitangi for the annual savagery on the due date.

        • Simon Brown

          Perhaps you missed my sarcasm. But yes you’re correct. The whole thing makes us look like a joke. Might as well throw the guns overboard and save the weight. It might even save some fuel and give them more time to get some holiday snaps.

      • Alright

        Ran out of fuel?

        I run a car without “running out of fuel.”

        And I don’t cost the taxpayer $660 million a year.

        Next time NZ will take a slug gun.

  • tinfoilhatguy

    The Belgians seem to be on to it. Well done.

    I think I read there were an estimated 5,000 Europeans fighting in Syria? Three down, 4,997 to go.

    • wanarunna

      It might take a while. They have to find the 360,000 virgins first.

      • Isherman

        Boko Haram in Nigeria have obviously considered this not insignificant issue, ..answer..10 year old female suicide bombers, send them to paradise before they have been deflowered.

        • ex-JAFA

          If she was a Muslim, she’d have to be a dried-up old spinster to have reached 10 without a wedding and doing a few laps of the tent with hubby.

      • Alright

        They’ll find that tough. Especially if they are searching for male virgins.

      • Wallace Westland

        Well they sure as hell won’t find any Muslim ones when it’s ok to marry a girl aged 6 as per the paedophile prophet Muhammad himself!

    • Isherman

      Maybe the number has to reach 5 digits before the ‘few’ lone wolves are considered a pack. But if you have an increasing number of hate preachers preaching to an increasing number of disciples, (homegrown & immigrants) it shouldn’t take too long to get there.

      • The Accountant

        Hey, there has been over 25,000 terror attacks attributable to the lone wolf religion since 9/11. Its still not considered to be an Islamic issue. Maybe 6 digits?

  • conwaycaptain

    UK Govt is considering bringing troops back from Germany and Cyprus to be on hand for any “In Defence of the Civil Power” action.
    I think that within 6 months we will see major action of the UK/European streets that will make the recent incidents pale into insigniifcance

    • Cadwallader

      I hope you’re right. it is only a decade late though. If a small country like Belgium can lead the way, isn’t it about time to see the Poms muster some Churchillian spirit and blow these pricks out of the UK? The way to do it maybe a new version of transportation to Australia not NZ!

    A speech by Filip Dewinter, the leader of the Flemish Seperatist party Vlaams Belang, considered a right wing party. He makes alot of sense to me in this speech, and I’m sure more and more people across Europe are thinking along these lines. There’s some interesting body language in what are clearly his opponents.

  • MAWG

    We now have terrorism being exported. Time for a high caliber tarriff?

    • Isherman

      Yes, though I would make the suggestion of sending some err…’Tarriff Officers’ to those countries to err..process and apply said tarriffs to them before they return, to help reduce ques at the airport.

  • jay

    They should be told – if you go overseas and join a terrorist organisation your citizenship will be revoked. How is that not fair?

    These mediaeval dickheads are members of a foreign army who the west are at war with. What kind of person goes over there to fight in the first place? And why on earth would we let them back into nz?

    It’s a totally absurd situation and would probably be funny if these turkeys weren’t so goddam dangerous.

  • steve and monique

    If you fight for these mongrels, you forgo the right to return to your homeland. And if you look like you might play up, you are booted back to where you came from. No exceptions. Belgium has it right.

  • Jimmie

    It might be time for these countries to formally declare war on Jihadist Islam and declare that any jihadists that return will be treated as Prisoners of War and interned in a POW camp.

    Also ensure that any homegrown jihadists are aware of what the meaning of treason means in terms of actions which are contrary to loyal allegiance to their country of residence.

    Its gotta happen at some time – ya just gotta wonder how many more deaths it will take.

  • J Ryan

    It’s simple. Government states banned groups that are off limits to adhere to, support. If you go, then you lose your citizenship and passport is revoked. Rid the country of scum.
