Islamism och kriminalitet i nära förening....

 
 
 
 
De minnesgoda minns säkert terrormorden i Köpenhamn 2015.
Gärningsmannen Omar al-Hussseini var precis släppt efter
två års fängelse för grov missshandel. Medlem i ett shariagäng,
knarklangare, rånare, islamist etc
 
Det är en bakgrund som snarast är "det normala" för
dagens jihadistiska terrorister. Frontpage Magazine
har undersökt ett antal av de senaste årens terrorister
och konstaterar ett klart mönster:
There exists a symbiotic relationship between Islamic
terrorism and non-ideologically driven criminality.
For the hard core or petty criminal, Islam represents
a pathway for redemption.
The terrorism component enables the assailant to
 continue his violent or deceitful activities while
claiming that these activities are being performed
in the name of Allah. Some violent recidivists are
simply drawn to the cruel and sadistic aspects
of radical Islam.
 
Något som inte särskilt nämns i artikeln är kopplingen
salafistmoské-jihadister. Inte minst Malmö, som ju precis
i stadens kriminella träsk borde fundera över detta
klara samband...
 
 
***
On October 1, a Muslim man of North African descent in his 30s arrived at Saint-Charles station in Marseille with one purpose in mind – to murder as many people as possible in the name of Islam. His first victim, a 20-year-old medical student from Marseille never stood a chance. The assailant lunged at her with a knife whose blade measured 8 inches, and stabbed her repeatedly while screaming “Allah Akbar.” He fled the scene but returned shortly thereafter to claim his second victim, a 21-year-old trainee nurse from Lyon. According to sources, one of the victims also had her throat slit.

The cold-blooded and depraved murder of the two young women failed to satiate terrorist’s lust for blood. After murdering his second victim, he ran toward soldiers patrolling as part of Operation Sentinelle, who shot him dead. In Western Europe, this is the new normal but the situation is particularly acute in France, which has experienced a rolling wave of terrorism since 2012. The country currently resembles an armed camp with the deployment of thousands of soldiers and police armed with automatic weapons, patrolling sensitive locations. But apart from increased security, France appears unable or unwilling to do more to counter the threat.

The Marseille slaughter could have easily been prevented but French authorities imbibed with a combination of political correctness, laziness and just plain stupidity, allowed it to occur. The terrorist who committed the gruesome attack was known to law enforcement. He was a recidivist whose rap sheet included a laundry list of petty crimes. In fact, just days before the attack, he was arrested for shoplifting but inexplicably released despite the fact that he possessed at least seven fake identities. The man, who informed the police that he was homeless, had given them a Tunisian passport in the name of Ahmed H, born on November 9, 1987 at Bizerte. But a quick fingerprint check would have revealed that he was lying through his teeth. Unfortunately, the fingerprint verification was performed after the Marseille slaughter.

French law enforcement officials attempted to deflect responsibility by claiming that the man had no known terrorist ties and that shoplifting offenses generally result in a police report and a court summons to appear at a later date. The proffered excuse is disingenuous at best. For years, French law enforcement officials have been cognizant of the nexus between criminal activity and radical Islamic terrorism. Several well-researched and detailed studies have confirmed this interconnection. In fact, as many as 80% of those who have committed terrorist attacks in the UK, France, Belgium, Germany and elsewhere in Western Europe in the name of Islam have criminal records with lengthy rap sheets that include drug dealing, petty larceny, assault and identity theft.

As noted, the terrorist who committed the Marseille outrage was a serial shoplifter and an identity thief. Khalid Masood, the UK terrorist who carried out the Westminster car-knife attack in March had a number of convictions for causing Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH) possession of offensive weapons and public order offenses. Kobili Traore, the Muslim man who brutally beat elderly Jewish pensioner Sarah Halimi, while yelling Islamic and anti-Semitic slogans, and then proceeded to throw her out of a third-floor window to her death had spent several years in prison for acts of aggravated violence and drug dealing. Amedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who stormed the Hypercacher kosher supermarket in Paris killing four, had previously been jailed for dealing in stolen goods, drug trafficking and robbery. Brothers Ibrahim and Salah Abdeslam, who were part of the gang that perpetrated the deadly Paris attacks in November 2015, were drug users and traffickers. The bar the duo owned in Molenbeek, a district of Brussels, was shut down by police for being a drug den.

The list is endless. There exists a symbiotic relationship between Islamic terrorism and non-ideologically driven criminality. For the hard core or petty criminal, Islam represents a pathway for redemption. The terrorism component enables the assailant to continue his violent or deceitful activities while claiming that these activities are being performed in the name of Allah. Some violent recidivists are simply drawn to the cruel and sadistic aspects of radical Islam.

Islamic terrorists frequently recruit from the rather large pool of criminals who domicile in Western countries but feel no loyalty to their host countries, despite the fact that these liberal democracies often provide them with outrageous entitlements including subsidized housing and stipends. The Islamist recruiter offers the criminal a pathway for redemption through religion but at the same time, takes advantage of the skills offered by the criminal to implement the terrorist scheme. For example, a drug dealer can use proceeds to finance a terror operation while an identity thief has the know-how to either forge or illegally obtain identity papers. The violent felon is often knowledgeable in the use of firearms or has the necessary connections to obtain illegal firearms and explosives.

Daniel Pipes: Merkel's historic folly

 
Gårdagens jihad i Marseille 
 
Daniel Pipes var en av de första forskare som varnade Västerlandet för den expanderande islamismen.
Hans artiklar har fungerat som lärorika varningsklockor för de politiker och journalister, som är mottagliga för fakta. 
Inför tyska valet häromveckan skrev han en uppmärksammad artikel om Angela Merkels stora misstag. Den har publicerats över hela världen, inte minst i Tyskland....
Jag har hämtat ett utdrag från israeliska Arutz Sheva.
 

What basic questions do Europeans face?
Lacking sufficient children, the question is whether Europeans will they continue passively to accept whomever turns up, even if they lack skills and come from a largely hostile culture or whether they will develop a plan of controlled immigration, selecting people around the world most suited to bring skills and fit in? Germany's decision to open the borders meant choosing the former option.

Why are relations between Europeans and Muslim immigrants so fraught with tension?
They are fraught because Islam is an imperialist faith and many Muslim immigrants want to replace existing European civilization with Islam. Exacerbating matters, Europeans and Muslims are opposites on several key issues: Europeans have a low birthrate, Muslim immigrants have a high one. Europeans have a weak religious identity, Muslims have a strong one. Europeans feel guilty for their historical sins; immigrants have boisterous confidence in the superiority of their civilization.
 
Many Germans argue that as a rich nation, they morally must open their doors to people in need.
I admire that humanitarian impulse but it is unrealistic. Can Germany take in, say, 2 billion people? If not, how does it morally pick the tiny percentage it does allow in?

Is it not strange that migrants from Syria and Iraq move to places like Germany and Sweden? They would be better off going to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, where the climate, the language, the religion, and the mores are all like their own; plus, these countries are much closer to Syria.


What, then, is the answer?

Practically speaking, see the world in terms of cultural and geographic zones: Westerners in need should stay in the West, Middle Easterners should stay in the Middle East, and so forth around the globe. Is it not strange that migrants from Syria and Iraq move to places like Germany and Sweden? They would be better off going to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, where the climate, the language, the religion, and the mores are all like their own; plus, these countries are much closer to Syria

Cultures and customs change. Perhaps Muslims will adapt to European cultures if given the opportunity?
In theory, yes; in practice, no. Experience shows that the first generation of Muslim immigrants to Europe is more adaptable than its children and grandchildren, as cultural separation increases over time. It is hard to find any place in Europe where Muslim immigrants have assimilated, leading me gravely to doubt that this will take place in the future. Chileans, Chinese, and Congolese fit better into European culture than do Muslims.

Many Muslims of immigrant origins point to discrimination as a factor hindering them from fully integrating into German society.
Yes, discrimination is a problem. I would not want to be named Muhammad and look for a job in Hamburg. But that supports my argument that it is better to be named Muhammad in Saudi Arabia or Kuwait. Why push together peoples who, as the last 55 years have shown, cannot live easily together? As Thilo Sarrazin has showed, the experiment of Muslim immigration has failed; continuing it will increase tensions.
 
You stress that Islamism, not Islam, is the threat. How do you define Islamism?
Islamism is a specific understanding of Islam that holds if Muslims wish to return to the riches and power of 1,000 years ago, they must apply the Islamic law in its entirety. Islamists argue among themselves how to do so: the modern-oriented Gülen movement in Turkey represents one extreme and ISIS, which wants to return to the seventh century, represents the other. Some Islamists use violence, others work through the political system. In this way, they resemble communists, with their major tactical differences but similar goals

You describe "the Islamist threat" as "arguably the most consequential issue of our time" facing the West. Islamist terror can certainly do damage but how can Islamists threaten the West as a whole, given the West's dominant economic and military power?
I see Islamism as the third great totalitarian threat after communism and fascism, a seductive and powerful body of ideas that threatens our way of life. And just as we had to fight against the fascism and communism, we now must fight Islamism.

When you say that the West needs to fight Islamism, what kind of fight are you thinking of - cultural, political, or military?
Fighting violence is the easy part because murderous jihadi attacks are frightening and the West has police departments, intelligence agencies and armed forces competent to deal with this problem. Further, this low-level violence destroys property and kills people but cannot shift civilizations. Lawful Islamists, in contrast, by working within the system, in the political, educational, philanthropic, or media arenas, have a potentially profound influence. While I'd rather encounter a lawful Islamist rather than a violent jihadi on the street, only non-violent tactics change the face of society; and relatively few Westerners even notice what's happening.

How do you view Europe's response to Islamism?

Compared to 20 years ago, a great leap in awareness has occurred – but not enough yet to make a difference in policy. Virtually everywhere in Europe, political parties exist that make immigration and Islamism a priority, but almost none of them has been in power because these groups tend to be staffed by amateurs, contain too many extremists, and are ostracized. As a result, they cannot reach 51 percent.
 
Like the Alternative für Deutschland in Germany, the only party that consistently opposes Muslim immigration?
Precisely. The AfD is an excellent example of amateurs mixed with extremists trying to figure out who they are – liberals, Neo-Nazis, or something in between? As long as they leave this question open, their electoral potential is limited, and they are dangerous. But I expect that eventually the AfD will mature, and I think and hope it will move toward the mainstream for there clearly exists a need for such a party in Germany. But every year that goes by, the danger grows.

Will the anti-immigration remain excluded from power?
No, I expect this will change, that these parties will start to gain power within a decade.

The AfD stands below 10 percent in the polls while Merkel's CDU gets almost 40 percent. Does this signal that Germans are not that unhappy with Merkel's immigration policies?
I am surprised by and cannot explain the lack of a CDU challenge to Merkel.

Geert Wilders of the Netherlands, one of the most prominent politicians against Muslim immigration, has been put on trial for hate speech. Your organization helped cover his legal costs; why?
We at the Middle East Forum believe in the freedom publicly to state opinions on matters concerning Islam and Islamism, whether or not we happen to agree with that opinion. Toward this end, our Legal Project often helps defendants pay legal costs, including Wilders' a few years ago. I disagree with his views on who the enemy is (he says Islam, I say Islamism) but that is secondary; I will help him, as any Westerner, assert the right to talk about Islam without getting hauled into Court.

Is Donald Trump's "Muslim ban" a useful way to keep Islamists out of the United States?
The Trump administration's ban of the citizens of six majority-Muslim countries was well-intentioned but poorly executed. One should not look at a person's passport but at his ideas. Some Canadians are our enemies and some Iranians are our friends. Of course, ideas are more elusive than nationality. But banning certain nationalities does not offer protection; that requires a serious effort to know each person entering the country.

The city of Hamburg in 2012 signed an accord, a "Staatsvertrag" with Muslim groups such as Ditib, Schura, and VIKZ to regulate Islamic classes and holidays. Members of those organization have been accused of Islamism and antisemitism, yet the authorities cannot a find clean Muslim organization. Your comment?
Islamists are much better funded and organized than non-Islamist Muslims, in part because they receive help from Middle Eastern states such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey. This permits them routinely to dominate Muslim life in the West, appearing on television, engaging in interreligious dialogue, teaching in classrooms, and (as in this case) partnering with governments.

You want Western governments to empower moderate Muslims but in Germany, only a few Muslims have showed up to protest Islamism, so who and where are the moderates?
Calls for mass Muslim support against Islamism always fail in the West. (Muslim-majority countries are another matter.) In part this results from a lack of funding and organization, in part to intimidation: it takes an awful lot of courage to be a Muslim and to come out publicly against Islamism. The new liberal Ibn Ruschd-Goethe mosque in Berlin is a good example: its founder, Seyran Ateş, has received death threats.

What should Western governments do?
Strongly support non-Islamist Muslims - and especially anti-Islamist Muslims. Islamists like Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan claim there is only one kind of Islam, namely theirs. No: there are many versions of Islam and non-Muslims should reject, and certainly not enable, Islamist hegemony. Rather, brave anti-Islamists like Ateş should get official recognition and other forms of support.

Militär bevakar Synagogan i Köpenhamn

 

De judiska helgdagarna bjuder på en tragisk nyhet i Danmark.

För första gången sedan kriget har militär trupp satts in för bevakning av bl a Synagogan i Köpenhamn. 160 soldater bevakar just nu judiska
församlingens lokaler och israeliska ambassaden i Köpenhamn.
Terrorhotet anses så akut att en militär specialenhet satts in mot det jihadistiska hotet.
Hotbilden förstärks av de hundratals välbeväpnade kriminella islamisterna i Köpenhamns shariagäng. Mordet utanför Synagogan 2015 begicks av en medlem i ett sådant gäng.




(AFP) COPENHAGEN, Denmark — The Danish military deployed troops in Copenhagen on Friday to guard the city’s synagogue and the Israeli embassy, hours ahead of the Yom Kippur Jewish holiday.

The deployment was the first by troops in the Danish capital since WWII.

The synagogue and the Israeli embassy have been under police protection since two deadly attacks in 2015.

An AFP correspondent at the scene saw armed soldiers standing outside Copenhagen’s main synagogue, with the narrow medieval street where it is located sealed off on both ends, hours before the start of Yom Kippur on Friday evening.

“This is the first time they are used in this type of situation, so it’s unique,” Copenhagen police spokesman Rasmus Bernt Skovsgaard said.



Danish police have protected Jewish institutions in the country since Omar El-Hussein, a Danish citizen of Palestinian origin who swore allegiance to the Islamic State group, opened fire outside the synagogue, killing one Jewish man and wounding two police officers in 2015.

Hours earlier, El-Hussein attacked a cultural centre hosting a free speech and Islam forum attended by the Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who faced death threats for penning a caricature of the Prophet Mohammad.

A filmmaker, Finn Norgaard, was killed in that attack. Police later killed El-Hussein.

The soldiers, who will be deployed until March 2018, are “well-trained and equipped to carry out this type of mission,” Lieutenant Colonel Steen Dalsgaard of the Danish army told AFP.

Some 160 soldiers have been deployed in Copenhagen and at the Danish-German border, where controls were restored at the end of 2015 to limit a migrant influx.

Denmark’s terror threat level is “serious”, ranked four on a five-point scale, according to the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET).

The latest deployment is not a response to any new threat, but rather aims to assist Copenhagen police strained by operations in other parts of the city.

Police will continue to guard the Jewish museum and the school.

När islam stoppades vid Wien 1683

 



Att fira stora slag och segrar är definitivt ute i dagens
Europa. Det är bara Frankrike som envist fortsätter med
militärparader på sin Nationaldag. Något motsvarande
i Sverige skulle ju dels framstå som ren lyteskomik
med tanke på Försvarets tillstånd, dels fått allvarlig
politisk kritik från stalinisterna på DN:s kultursida...
 
Därför värmde det ju en gammal soldats hjärta när
jag nyligen blev vittne till hur Wiens ungdom
högtidlighöll slaget vid Kahlenberg 1683, förra
gången islams invasionsförsök slogs tillbaka av
en förenad europeisk här under ledning av den
polske kungen Jan Sobieski.
Det blev det sista i en lång rad av europeiska
försvarskrig mot den framryckande jihadismen 
som startade med slaget vid Poitiers 732.

En liten reklamfilm på nätet samlade ett tusental
ungdomar på Kahlenberg i Wiens utkanter till
fackeltåg och minnestal. Österrikarna (inte minst
de unga) känner sig hårt trängda av den nya
islamistiska invasionen. Visserligen mera en
demografisk än en väpnad invasion, men på
sikt med samma resultat.
 


Slaget vid Wien (eller slaget vid Kahlenberg) var det slag som följde på belägringen av staden Wien som genomfördes av det Osmanska riket mellan maj och september 1683. Det är inte att förväxla med belägringen av Wien 1529.

I syfte att slutgiltigt besegra den österrikiske kejsaren utrustade den osmanske sultanen Mehmet IV i början av 1680-talet en armé på runt 200 000 man (förutom turkiska styrkor även kontingenter från vasallerna Bosnien, Ungern, Serbien, Albanien, Grekland och Krim). Sultanen satsade allt på ett kort och beslöt att försöka ta Wien. Krig förklarades i augusti 1682 och i början av april året därpå marscherade en här på 150 000 man under den albanske storvesiren Kara Mustafa nordvästut mot Wien.
Den flera månader långa belägringen inleddes på försommaren 1683. Wien sände ut desperata böner om hjälp och höll ut tillräckligt länge för att en polsk-tysk armé om 70 000 man under den polske kungen Johan III Sobieskis ledning kunde sättas upp och komma Österrike till undsättning. Den 10-11 september 1683 arrangerade Sobieski forcerat och mödosamt undsättningshären till strid över de kringliggande skogklädda bergen. Den 12 september stod den allierade undsättningskåren färdig till strid på fälten mellan Kahlenberg och det belägrade Wien. Efter en hel dags infanteri- och artilleristrider satte Sobieski in den ditintills största kavallerichocken i Europas historia; 20 000 ryttare anförda av en spjutspets på 3 000 lansbeväpnade polska bevingade husarer klöv och skingrade den osmanska hären som hävde belägringen och flydde i panik.
I det fortsatta kriget förlorade osmanerna allt mer mark. Kara Mustafa tvingades som straff för sitt misslyckande av sultanen att traditionsenligt ta sitt liv genom strypning juldagen samma år. I freden i Karlowitz 1699 fick sultanen överlämna Ungern, Transsylvanien och Slavonien till Österrike.
                       
 Men vad utspelades då på Kahlenberg
i september 1683 ?

Den polsk-italienska filmen 11 wrzesnia 1683, Bitwa pod Wiedniem/
The day of the Siege: September Eleven 1683 skildrar slagets förlopp.

Det är väl ingen överdrift att påstå  att Europas seger över
Ottomanernas jihad kom att bestämma den politiska
utvecklingen i vår världsdel för flera hundra år framåt.
Först i våra dagar har islamismen återigen blivit
ett reellt hot mot Europa.
 




För den nyfikne:

Den vältalande munken är påvens personliga sändebud
Marco d'Aviano, som gjorde en viktig insats för att
ena de europeiska styrkorna och ingjuta mod i
soldaterna. d'Aviano saligförklarades av påve

Europa öppnade sina gränser - är det tacken vi ser ?


 
 
De senaste åren har vi sett dussintals jihadistiska terrordåd
i Västerlandet, utförda av personer som fått asyl undan
påstådd förföljelse i Mellanöstern. Inte minst den jättelika
gruppen s k underåriga som oftast fått asyl utan identitets-
kontroll och t o m endast på grundval av sin påstådda ålder...
 
Låt mig påminna om att katastrofåret 2015 inkom 
 till Sverige 35 369 s k "ensamkommande underåriga"
(d v s i huvudsak afghanska män 20-25 som ville
undvika värnplikt i Afghanistan eller Iran)....
De flesta saknade legitimation.
Ingen säkerhetskontroll kunde därför 
genomföras.
Idag bor de väl utspridda över
alla
svenska kommuner. Ett oroväckande stort
antal tycks politiskt-religiöst sympatisera
med Kalifatet.
 
En direkt parallell såg vi häromveckan vid det
senaste försöket att bomba tunnelbanan i
London.
De gripna är en syrier och en irakier, som fått
asyl i Storbritannien som "underåriga flyktingar".
Nu agerar de som "Allahs soldater" för kalifatet
och försöker mörda otroende i London.
 
En välkänd terrorforskare kommenterar företeelsen:
  



Överraskande nog har en aktiv centerpartist vågat ta
upp skandalen med de falska åldersbestämningarna
Migrationsverket. Just nu diskuteras det mest i samband
med invasionen av marockanska smågangsters i svenska
storstäder. 
 
Men glöm inte att det även är en viktig
del av problemet med den jihadistiska
terrorvågen i Europa...
SÄPO:s säkerhetskontroll av vuxna
asylsökare är i bästa fall ett grovmaskigt nät,
men när det därutöver släpps in tiotusentals
män i värnpliktsåldern med okända eller falska
identiteter utan kontroll havererar systemet totalt.
 
Se t ex Petterssons blogg om Migrationsverkets
inkompetens och den pågående debatten om
åldersbestämningar...

Wagers blogg om Migrationsverket.

TVÅ VIKTIGA JUBILÉER VI JUST MISSAT....

 
 
Daniel Pipes påminner om två viktiga händelser
i dagarna för 120 respektive 70 år sedan.
Hans rubrik
Did Theodor Herzl Make the All-Time Best Prediction?
är mitt i prick...
 
 
Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) wrote in his diary on Sep. 3, 1897, three days after the close in Basel of the Zionist Organization's First Zionist Congress that he had chaired:
in Basel habe ich den Judenstaat gegründet. Wenn ich das heute laut sagte, würde mir ein universelles Gelächter antworten. Vielleicht in fünf Jahren, jedenfalls in fünfzig wird es jeder einsehen.
(at Basel, I founded the Jewish State. Were I to say this in public today, I would be greeted with universal laughter. Perhaps in five years, certainly in fifty, everyone will see [the truth of] this.)

The above quote starts with the final two words of the top line.


Fifty years later to the day, on Sep. 3, 1947, the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP) presented its Report to the General Assembly calling for the end of the British Mandate and proposed a Plan of Partition of Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state.

On Nov. 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly passed UNSCOP's plan almost without changes as Resolution 181, thereby formally recognizing "the Jewish State" that Herzl had foreseen.

The "Palestine Post" reported the General Assembly vote lacking a sense of its historic importance.


This extraordinary prediction comes to mind on the 120th and 70th anniversaries of the two dates. (September 3, 2017)




SÄPO-man: No-go-områdena drivbänkar för jihadister

 

 

Tankeväckande intervju i SVT Nyheter.
Den erfarne SÄPO-mannen ser "no-go-områdena" (där polis och andra myndigheter helst håller sig borta...) som drivbänkar för kriminalitet och extremism (läs: jihadism).

Samtidigt ser vi hur antalet jihadister i Europa ökar explosionsartat och hur myndigheternas tafatta försök att "avradikalisera" dem misslyckas totalt.
Och regeringspartiernas allians med Muslimska Brödraskapet , den islamistiska terrorismens farfar, gör det ju inte lättare för de myndigheter eller politiker, som vill bekämpa jihadismen...

Ett utdrag ur intervjun:

Utanförskapet i särskilt utsatta områden har blivit ett växthus för terrorism. Det säger PO Hellqvist, som har arbetat 30 år på Säpo i Göteborg, till SVT:s Agenda. Han känner stor oro för utvecklingen som han menar går mot parallella rättssamhällen och fattigdom.
Han har jobbat på Säpo i Göteborg i 30 år, spenderat mycket tid i extremistmiljöer och träffat både IS-resenärer och deras familjer. Nu har PO Hellqvist lämnat Säpo och börjat jobba för polisen. För SVT:s Agenda berättar han om sina erfarenheter av extremistmiljöer i Göteborg under åren på Säpo.
– Jag vill påstå att det är utanförskapet i de här särskilt utsatta områdena som har blivit en drivbänk för både kriminalitet och våldsbejakande extremism.
– Jag ser parallella rättssamhällen, jag ser skolor med dåliga resurser, jag ser fattigdom, jag ser stor arbetslöshet, jag ser frånvaro av unga kvinnor i offentliga miljöer, jag hör talas om moralpoliser. Jag hör och ser saker som inte riktigt hör hemma i en demokrati så som vi känner den.
 

”En maktkamp”

På en bilresa i Göteborg tillsammans med PO Hellqvist åker vi genom ett av stadens utsatta områden.
Här pågår en maktkamp mellan svenska myndigheter och de strukturer som finns här ute.
Han betonar att det han pratar om handlar om en minoritet av dem som bor i utsatta områden. När Säpo samlar in information om våldsbejakande extremister så är det från de boende i dessa områden som man får mest hjälp.
– Det är människor som bor i dessa områden, som har flytt från krig och elände och som inte vill uppleva det igen.
PO Hellqvist är mer oroad över personer som radikaliserats i Sverige än för så kallade IS-återvändare.
– Dels är de många fler och de finns inte på polisens och säkerhetspolisens radar på samma sätt. I särskilt utsatta områden har de också tillgång till vapen så därför är jag egentligen mer bekymrad för dem som finns här hemma.

Belgien: "Var femte moské en säkerhetsrisk"

 
 
 
Som en liten komplettering till gårdagens artikel om
fiaskot för "avradikalisering" av jihadister.
Men också apropå det enfaldiga Sverige som
 Belgian authorities investigated 58 mosques and 61 Islamic associations in 2016 in an effort to counter the spread of radical Islamist ideology, according to the country's justice minister and reported by the Brussels Times.

"Avradikalisering" av jihadister totalfiasko

 
 
 
 
 
För några år sedan svepte en ny trend över Europa.
ett antal forskare att man kan "avprogrammera"
jihadister.
I Sverige fick Mona Sahlin en egen liten myndighet
för ändamålet. Det blev en lyckträff för henne och
den nye älskaren: De kunde sko sig ordentligt och
köpa en lyxvilla...
Det enda konkreta resultatet efter tre år:
hämtades hem med regeringsplanet när han
tröttnat på att leka krig i Syrien. Och sedan
kunde han återuppta sin imamkarriär...
"Avradikalisering", pyttsan...
 
Samtiden skriver om hur "avradikaliseringen"
misslyckats över hela Europa.
 
 
FRANKRIKE. Pionjärcentret Pontourney invigdes förra året för att ta tag i islamisk radikalisering. Ett år senare stängs det. Kostnad: 2,5 miljoner euro och inte en enda jihadist har man lyckats avradikalisera. 
 
I Europa som helhet finns det runt 50 000 radikala islamister. Storbritannien har fler radikala islamister än något annat land, 35 000. I Frankrike finns det för närvarande omkring 15000 individer i Frankrike som tros vara i en process att radikaliseras, enligt en artikel i italienska La Stampa.

För ett år sedan invigdes Center for Prevention, Integration and Citizenship, Frankrikes första avradikaliseringscenter i Beaumont-en-Véron, en liten stad med 3000 invånare. Projektet var tänkt att vara ett pionjärprojekt, det första av 12 planerade centra över landet.
Men knappt ett år senare meddelar inrikesministreriet att centret läggs ner, på grund av brist på deltagare. ”Experimentet med ett öppet center, på frivillig basis, har visat sina begränsningar”, skriver man i en pressrelease. Kostnaderna blev 2,5 miljoner euro och inte en enda individ har man lyckats avradikalisera.

Kritiserade
Pontournycentret öppnade efter vågen av terroristattacker i Frankrike som på 18 månader dödade 234 människor och regeringen kritiserades för att göra för lite.
Centret hade full kapacitet på 30 intagna och 25 personal. Myndigheter från hela landet kunde hänvisa personer som de uppfattade vara på väg att radikaliseras och dessa unga kunde sedan välja om de ville gå eller inte. Programmet skulle vara tio månader långt. Men misslyckandet är ett faktum.
 
 
 
 
Se istället varifrån smittan sprids.
Salafistmoskéerna.
 
Den enda vettiga åtgärden vore naturligtvis
 att stänga salafistmoskéerna och utvisa imamerna.
Då angriper man roten till det onda istället för

Frankrike deporterade också 2012-16 minst 80
 
I  Sverige gör man som vanligt tvärtom:

Europas "öppna dörrar" resulterar i 50.000 jihadister ?



 
Soeren Kern på Gatestone om de europeiska säkerhetstjänsternas fullt berättigade oro över att
de senaste årens  s k flyktingström innehåller stora
mängder jihadister.
Och visst har vi sett en hel del exempel på det även i Sverige: IKEA-knivmorden, lastbilsdådet i centrala Stockholm, shiamoskébranden i Malmö, den "svenske" journalistens jihad mot polisen i Paris, den knivhuggne polisen på Medborgarplatsen... etc etc

Låt mig påminna om att katastrofåret 2015 inkom  35 369 s k "ensamkommande underåriga" (d v s i huvudsak afghanska män 20-25 som ville undvika värnplikt i Afghanistan eller Iran)....
De flesta saknade legitimation. Ingen säkerhets-kontroll kunde därför genomföras.
Idag bor de väl utspridda över alla svenska kommuner.

 Europe: Jihadists Posing as Migrants
  •  More than 50,000 jihadists are now living in Europe. — Gilles de Kerchove, EU Counterterrorism Coordinator.
  • Europol, the European police office, has identified at least 30,000 active jihadist websites, but EU legislation no longer requires internet service providers to collect and preserve metadata — including data on the location of jihadists — from their customers due to privacy concerns. De Kerchove said this was hindering the ability of police to identify and deter jihadists.

German authorities are hunting for dozens of members of one of the most violent jihadist groups in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra, but who, according to Der Spiegel, entered Germany disguised as refugees.
The men, all former members of Liwa Owais al-Qorani, a rebel group destroyed by the Islamic State in 2014, are believed to have massacred hundreds of Syrians, both soldiers and civilians.
German police have reportedly identified around 25 of the jihadists and apprehended some of them, but dozens more are believed to be hiding in cities and towns across Germany.
In all, more than 400 migrants who entered Germany as asylum seekers in 2015 and 2016 are now being investigated for being members of Middle Eastern jihadists groups, according to the Federal Criminal Police (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA).
 
The revelation comes amid new warnings that jihadists are posing as migrants and arriving from North Africa on boats across the Mediterranean and onto Italian shores. In an interview with The Times, Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj said that jihadists who had been able to pass undetected into his country were almost certainly making their way into Europe.
"When migrants reach Europe they will move freely," said al-Sarraj, referring to the open borders within the European Union. "If, God forbid, there are terrorist elements among the migrants, any incident will affect all of the EU."
 
Independent MEP Steven Woolfe said:
"These comments show the problem to be two-fold. Firstly, potential terrorists are using the Mediterranean migrant trail as a way of entering Europe unchecked. Secondly, with Europe's lack of borders due to Schengen rules, once in Europe, they are able to move from one country to another freely. Strong borders are a necessity."
Around 130,000 migrants arrived in Europe by land and sea during the first eight months of 2017, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The main nationalities of arrivals to Italy in July were, in descending order: Nigeria, Bangladesh, Guinea, Ivory Coast and Mali. Arrivals to Greece were from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Congo. Arrivals to Bulgaria were from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Turkey.
 
In recent weeks, traffickers bringing migrants to Europe have opened up a new route through the Black Sea. On August 13, 69 Iraqi migrants were arrested trying to reach the Romanian Black Sea coast, having set off from Turkey in a yacht piloted by Bulgarian, Cypriot and Turkish smugglers. On August 20, the Romanian Coast Guard intercepted another boat carrying 70 Iraqis and Syrians, including 23 children, in the Black Sea in Romania's southeastern Constanta region.
A total of 2,474 people were detained while trying to cross the Romanian border illegally during the first six months of 2017, according to Balkan Insight. Almost half of them were caught while trying to leave Romania for Hungary. In 2016 only 1,624 migrants were detained; most were found trying to cross from Serbia to Romania.
Meanwhile, more than 10,000 migrants reached Spanish shores during the first eight months of 2017 — three times as many as in all of 2016, according to the IOM. Thousands more migrants have entered Spain by land, primarily at the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla on the north coast of Morocco, the European Union's only land borders with Africa. Once there, migrants are housed in temporary shelters and then moved to the Spanish mainland, from where many continue on to other parts of Europe.
 
Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, has warned that jihadists are using the migration crisis to enter Europe and plot attacks across the continent. Frontex It has also conceded that it does not know the true number of migrants who have crossed into Europe and has no way of tracking them. In its annual risk analysis for 2016, Frontex wrote:
"The Paris attacks in November 2015 clearly demonstrated that irregular migratory flows could be used by terrorists to enter the EU. Two of the terrorists involved in the attacks had previously irregularly entered through Leros [Greece] and had been registered by the Greek authorities. They presented fraudulent Syrian documents to speed up their registration process.
"False declarations of nationality are rife among nationals who are unlikely to obtain asylum in the EU, are liable to be returned to their country of origin or transit, or just want to speed up their journey. With a large number of persons arriving with false or no identification documents or raising concerns over the validity of their claimed nationality — with no thorough check or penalties in place for those making such false declarations, there is a risk that some persons representing a security threat to the EU may be taking advantage of this situation."
In an August 31 interview with the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Gilles de Kerchove, the EU's Counterterrorism Coordinator said that more than 50,000 jihadists are now living in Europe:
"Three years ago, it was easy to identify someone who has become radicalized. Now, most fanatics disguise their convictions. We do not have exact figures, but it is not difficult to do approximate calculations. United Kingdom, it is not a secret, it has been published, it has 20,000. France, 17,000. Spain much less, but more than 5,000, I suppose. In Belgium almost 500 have gone to Syria and there are about 2,000 radicals or more. I would not venture to a specific figure, but tens of thousands, more than 50,000."

In an interview with the Belgian daily Le Soir, de Kerchove warned that even if the Islamic State is militarily defeated, it will continue to thrive as a "virtual caliphate." He also said that Europol, the European police office, has identified at least 30,000 active jihadist websites, but that EU legislation no longer requires internet service providers to collect and preserve metadata — including data on the location of jihadists — from their customers due to privacy concerns. De Kerchove said this was hindering the ability of police to identify and deter jihadists: "On metadata, I confess that we pull our hair out."
