The New Face of Radical Islamist Terrorism

His name is Alexandre. He went to a large Parisian shopping mall. He bought a pocket knife and a carton of orange juice. He said a Moslem prayer in a corner of the mall. He then attacked a 22-year-old French soldier on patrol, stabbing him several times in the neck and throat. Alexandre was also 22. He was homeless. He had converted to radical Islam as a teenager. He was arrested today at the home of a friend who has not been implicated. He was identified through DNA on the plastic juice bottle, said Christophe Crepin, spokesman for the French police union UNSA. Alexandre told police 'I know why you're here.' A French police spokesman said that "The nature of the attack, the fact that it happened three days after the London attack and a prayer that was carried shortly before the attack make us believe that he acted in the name of his religious ideology and that his wish was to attack someone representing the state." The spokesman also said the man came under scrutiny after a street prayer in 2007 and authorities had his DNA profile on record after a series of petty crimes as a minor. Under French anti-terrorism law, he can be held for 96 hours without charge, but French police believe he was a Lone Wolf would-be assassin. If so, this would be the first time a French Moslem convert committed a lone-wolf style terrorist act, rather than as part of a terrorist network, according to an analyst who said Lone Wolf attacks are the most alarming because it's completely unpredictable." French Interior Minister Manuel Valls said, "I have said it before and I say it again. We have dozens if not hundreds of potential terrorists in our country." ~~~~~ Dear readers, this is the new face of radical Islam terrorism in our midst. Drones and hit squads are essentially useless against them. There is nothing swashbuckling or world-changing about their violent acts. They will not be remembered for long as individuals. They are outcasts being turned against society by professional terrorists using religion and the social difficulties of young men to wreak violence on citizens of the democracies of the world and on the Moslems in their own world who dare to disagree with them. In both cases, our children are being brainwashed into ticking time bombs and we need a strategy to stop the perpetrators and to recover these young and vulnerable converts to a false religion of domestic and international terrorism.

    "We need a strategy ..." How about stopping this playing nice with a whole society of people who are either part of the radical muslin network or those who will never stand up and denounce them from within.

    There has been NO remorse from the mainstream Muslin community for 9-11.

    We need to teach our children about the evil of radical Islam. they need to know that all things are not good. they need to know that there is evil in the world and it dose not need to be tolerated.

    "If It Walks Like A Duck, Looks Like A Duck, and Sounds Like A Duck" ... watch out you may be face to face with a Duck. So you'd better understand what a Duck is all about.

    I would take objection to Minister Valls statement ..." French Interior Minister Manuel Valls said, "I have said it before and I say it again. We have dozens if not hundreds of potential terrorists in our country."

    if you think you have hundreds you have thousands, if you think there are thousands in your country you have tens of thousands. There is NO WAY to count accurately. it's a "Turkey Shoot"

    The problem in England, France, Germany, Switzerland,and possibly Spain is the percentage of Muslin's to the total population. and in the 5 countries I just mentioned each and every one is at or above 5% of the total population. the US is at 2%. With normal birth rate and immigration (is it is not stopped from certain countries) that 5% will be 10% within 15 years. 5% of the total population is nearing an unmanageable percentage because of the rate of increase.

    We - and I include the US in this we - need to get a handle on our immigration policy and not be afraid to restrict certain social, ethnic or religious groups from flooding our borders with questionable people.

    The US missed a golden opportunity to step back and take a hard look at out immigration policy immediately following 9-11.

    No country that permits immigration should be selective or restrictive based on religion. But we do owe security to our own citizens.

    Take a ,look at the Middle east countries where the Obama Doctrine has failed miserably:

    Libya - failed
    Syria - failed
    Egypt - failed
    Pakistan - failed
    Afghanistan - failed
    Iran - failed

    Insanity folks is trying the same things over and over again and getting the same results each time.

    Islamic Fundamentalist Terrorism (ie: Muslin brotherhood)is running over the Middle East at will.

    Our previous Secretary of State and our current Secretary of State and our current president had/have NO experience in Foreign Affairs. Big deal oyer 2 Sec. of State sat on a senate sub-committee on foreign affairs ... I have been in an operating room where a heart transplant was being conducted some 10 times - am I capable of doing one? NO.

    We need to place professional diplomats where professional diplomats are called for - not political hacks or want-a-be's.

    The new face of International Terrorism is harder to recognize than the face they wore to conduct 9-11. Was the free world unprepared for that disaster. And we are equally unprepared for what is coming our way. Iran HAS the bomb and capability to make suit case duty bombs.

    As "Concerned Citizen" said about the duck ... wake up and call it for what it is citizens.

    We have yet to answer 9-11 in the mood that the Muslims would have answered such an event on their land. We failed to act with strength and revenge. We need to have the respect of the terrorists before an end can be reached.

    I'm afraid now at this late date post 9-11 we would be accused of aggression not defensive action.

    We know who they are and where they are. we know where they have their weapons and ammunition. we know where Iran is building their BOMBS. We can do this if there is willingness in Washington to do the job.

    We pay the price now or we pay a larger price later.
