Europe’s Terrorism Puzzle

Across the Atlantic, a number of pieces of the terrorism puzzle are gradually being exposed. We see some indication of the size the issue, and the pervasiveness of institutional funding that originates in the middle-east.

Douglas Farah has broken some of this down in a post today and he begins to ask the logical questions that should follow from this trail.

The most disturbing to me is a report that Britain’s Home Secretary Jaqui Smith believes the police are being overwhelmed by the growing threat of radical Islam in Britain.

“There are 2,000 individuals who are being monitored. There are 200 networks involved and 30 active plots,” she said.

And she warned the menace of Islamic fanatics is mounting so fast that police will be unable to cope within a year—

Where Mr. Farah does not draw a connection yet, and it would be interesting to pursue if I had time, is how similar events and trends in the United States are complicated by the open routes on the southern borders, and the Latin American links to, and organic terrorist threats and drug cartels.
