Europe’s denial of Islamic terrorism threat perplexes security specialists

May 24, 2017

The Manchester massacre underscores complaints from counterterrorism analysts that Europe has fallen into denial about the threat of Islamic terrorism.

For instance, London Mayor Sadiq Khan is on record as saying terrorism is “part and parcel” of urban life.
Furthermore, London police said in March that they could not assign a motive to a vehicle attack in which a Muslim British citizen followed the Islamic State tactical playbook by driving an SUV over pedestrians on crowded Westminster Bridge.

After the Brussels airport/subway bomb attacks in March 2016, U.S. officials said the Belgian capital was behind the times in basic intelligence-sharing.

Manchester Arena, with the largest capacity of any venue in Great Britain, exercised little security in the areas where people gathered before entering the concert Monday night. The foyer is where 22 concertgoers were killed and 59 others were injured by a suicide bomber. Fans said there was virtually no physical inspection of bags and knapsacks at the gates.

    The attack was bad, yes. Now I’ll get hit hard, but the wrong people got killed. I looked what the entertainer is about, and I see she is a believer in Islam. Then the new this AM is trying to make her mom, look like a hero, because after the bomb went off, she took some children backstage.From all I’ve read, this gal is an American hating twerp.

    Ignorance must be bliss. How long will the British public live with their heads in the sand? The tide is turning and they will become a minority in their own country. They have no ability to take care of their personal security and they depend on the blissful ignorance of their elected to protect them. The ISIS radicals see this as a target rich environment and a land to be concord and ceased. Wake up and fight…..
