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.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
