    "THERE ARE OVER 50.000 RADICALISED PEOPLE IN EUROPE"


    DeMorgen.be
    https://www.demorgen.be/binnenland/-...ropa-b53dda6f/

    "If we look at Europe, there are over 50,000 radicals. That is what European anti-terrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerchove says in an interview with De Morgen. "The key question is how many you should follow up on this and on the basis of what criteria", Belgian national De Kerchove says. He also doubts that jihadists can be deradicalised.

    According to De Kerchove, there are about 500 Syrian foreign fighters in Belgium, but also a group of over 2.000 radicalised persons.
    All over Europe, there are 50,000 of them. That is an estimate, it can also be a thousand more or less. But they are posing a problem to the security services. How do they determine who among those 50,000 is not only radical, but also potentially dangerous?

    "In the United Kingdom, intelligence services have identified 20,000 radicals," says De Kerchove. "Of those 20,000, MI5 is concerned about 3,000 of them. They keep a close eye on 500 of them. My question is: what criteria do you use to shift people from one category to another? These questions have not yet been fully answered. It is certainly not an exact science.

    De Kerchove also doubts that these persons can be deradicalised. "Someone who is very radical will stick to his ideas. What you should at least try to achieve is that the person does not use force to realize those ideas.

    De Kerchove believes that more efforts should be made to this end in the European member states. Belgium, for example, has a programme in prisons, but not in the community outside. He also pleads for university imam courses in our country and for making a European Islam possible.

    De Kerchove makes the statements in an interview with De Morgen. This very month he celebrates his tenth anniversary as an anti-terrorist coordinator. The terrorist threat has only increased in those ten years, but De Kerchove sees a few bright spots. "The risk of an attack is the sum of threat and vulnerability. This vulnerability has been reduced thanks to all the measures taken."

    Main message, barely hidden: secret services cannot keep an eye on every jihadist, let alone a close eye.

    SPANISH AND MOROCCAN POLICE DISMANTLE JIHADIST CELL IN A REHAB CENTER FOR VULNERABLE YOUTH

    ABC.España
    http://www.abc.es/espana/abci-deteni...6_noticia.html


    The National Police and the Directorate-General for Territorial Surveillance of the Kingdom of Morocco have dismantled today a Jihadist cell whose leader, a 39-year-old Spaniard living in Melilla, was using his job as an educational assistant in a juvenile rehabilitation centre to recruit and radicalize young people in a particularly vulnerable situation.

    According to sources in the investigation, during this period, he was able to form the now disarticulated terrorist cell, which was composed of five other Moroccans, one of them legally resident in Spain, and was at a dangerous level of activation. One of the members of the cell has been detained in Melilla and the other five in Morocco, including its leader, who was occasionally in that country.

    The investigation found that the group held "secluded night meetings, where they planned large-scale terrorist attacks," according to the National Police in a statement.

    The officers discovered physical training sessions in which those arrested also simulated murders by beheading, triggering rapid police action.

    The investigation, which is still ongoing, has been conducted under the supervision of Central Instruction Court No. 5 and the coordination of the Public Prosecutor's Office of the National High Court.

    In Melilla, 14 anti-terrorist operations have been carried out with a total of 26 detainees since 2012, according to the latest updated data from the Ministry of the Interior as of 1 September, which does not include the actions currently being carried out. Of these 14 operations, four have been carried out this year, with five detainees.

    Since 26 June 2015, when the Ministry of the Interior raised the Anti-Terrorist Alert Level (NAA) to 4, the security forces and corps have detained 199 Jihadist terrorists in operations in Spain and abroad and a total of 244 since the beginning of 2015.

    Explosive used by IS militants found in apartment near Paris

    Last Updated: 9:28 PM ET

    PARIS — A peroxide-based explosive that has been employed by Islamic extremists was found Wednesday in an apartment outside Paris that authorities suspect might have been in use as a lab for possible attacks, two French officials said.
    A police official told The Associated Press that some 100 grams of usable triacetone triperoxide, better known as TATP, were found in the Villejuif apartment where a police operation was carried out earlier in the day, leading to the detention of two suspects.

    "A former psychiatric patient viciously punched four passers-by then attacked three police officers while shouting Allahu Akbar in Toulouse today.

    The enraged man, 42, began beating beating shoppers in the French city at around 4pm before police who were only metres away swooped in.

    The man kicked and punched the officers before they managed to contain and arrest him.

    JIHADISTS EYE 'TRAIN DERAILMENTS & FOOD POISONING IN EUROPE'

    RT.com
    https://www.rt.com/news/403599-frenc...way-jihadists/

    French police have issued a confidential note based on an analysis of “jihadist propaganda,” warning of possible lone-wolf attacks causing trains to derail and even food poisoning, Le Parisien newspaper reports, citing the document.

    “Due to recent jihadist propaganda urging plans for train derailment, particular attention should be paid to any reports of intrusion or attempted sabotage on the premises of railways,” a seven-page report compiled by the police directorate at the beginning of September reads, as cited by Le Parisien.

    The document, which focuses on aspects of “jihadist propaganda” over the past three months, warns that terrorists are instructed to make explosives “as shown in tutorials,” conceal their radicalization, calling on “lone wolves” to cause “train derailments, forest fires or food poisoning" in Europe.

    The highest police authorities confirm in the report, citing the propaganda analysis, that “the threats of attack remain very high” in France. The confidential document notes that apart from the railway network, increased vigilance is requested for schools and universities, including “sensitive products or materials” which jihadists may steal from laboratories for homemade explosives.

    Tourist attractions such as churches, considered “a symbol of the western way of life,” are also listed among the potential targets most vulnerable to attack.
    The police report also mentions the threat of assaults in which people are attacked by speeding cars. Similar incidents happened this summer in London and Barcelona.

    Online jihadist content attracts more clicks in Britain than any other country in Europe, a major new report warns.

    Analysts found Islamic State was still pumping out vast volumes of internet propaganda despite coming under intense military pressure in Iraq and Syria.

    Experts say the group produces around 100 pieces of new content in an average week - but this is a conservative estimate.

    The in-depth study by think tank Policy Exchange says tens of thousands of users access jihadist material online from all over the globe.

    Researchers found the UK was the fifth most frequent location from which content was accessed - after Turkey, the US, Saudi Arabia and Iraq - and registered the largest number of clicks in Europe.

    Edmonton police stabbing, truck rampage being investigated as acts of terrorism

    https://globalnews.ca/news/3778626/e...wealth-source/

    The first attack happened when an Edmonton Police Service special duty member was stabbed by a man who had crashed a car into a police barricade outside the stadium, where the Edmonton Eskimos were hosting Winnipeg on Canadian Forces Appreciation Night.

    Following the stabbing of the police officer, a suspect fled on foot, prompting a massive manhunt. Approximately two hours later — around 11:30 p.m. — a U-Haul van was seen speeding through downtown streets with up to a dozen police vehicles in pursuit.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    Edmonton police say they are investigating an act of terrorism

    An Islamic State militants flag was seized as evidence, he said.
    It was military appreciation night. Canada's chief of defence staff, Gen. Jonathan Vance, conducted the pregame coin flip and two CF-18 fighter jets did a fly-past before kickoff. More than 800 Boy Scouts were expected at the game and many were planning to camp out on the field afterward.

    While the Eskimos were battling the Winnipeg Blue Bombers inside the stadium, outside a white Chevy Malibu approached a traffic control post at a high rate of speed.

    Knecht said the car rammed through a barricade, throwing an officer about five metres into the air, then crashed into a police cruiser.

    The driver hopped out and began "viciously" stabbing the officer with a knife before running away, Knecht said

    The two victims from Sunday’s attack at Marseille’s train station suffered gory injuries, with a police source saying that one victim’s throat was slit while the other was stabbed in the stomach.
    Three police sources said the suspect had shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest) as he carried out his attack at Marseille train station

    “Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned today.

    Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using crude knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another ‘big explosion’ similar to the September 2001 atrocities.

    Speaking at the US embassy in London, she said intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.
    Following the recent wave of attacks in Manchester and London, police chiefs have said the threat facing the UK is a ‘new norm’ that will not change.

    But Mrs Duke said ISIS is currently in an ‘interim’ period focusing on a much bigger endgame.”

    I don’t think this news would come as any surprise to anyone but I hope and pray they don’t succeed. I’m concerned about new attacks happening in London and Europe near and during the festive period. It was awful last New Year with the attack in Turkey.
