More European Muslims Embrace Jihad

More Muslims in Europe are turning toward the path of jihad and terrorism against non-Muslims.

ZUTPHEN, Netherlands -- On the surface, the young Dutch Moroccan mother looked like an immigrant success story: She studied business in college, hung out at the pub with her friends and was known for her fashionable taste in clothes.

So residents of this 900-year-old river town were thrown for a loop last year when Bouchra El-Hor, now 24, appeared in a British courtroom wearing handcuffs under an all-encompassing black veil. Prosecutors said she had covered up plans for a terrorist attack and wrote a letter offering to sacrifice herself and her infant son as martyrs.

The Washington Post article uses this Dutch Moroccan (i.e. Muslim) as an example of an improbable terrorist. Well, granted men are more likely to embrace jihad than women. But some women do it. Muslim women aren't automatically safe to be around just because they are women.

People in Zutphen may have been surprised, but terrorism suspects from atypical backgrounds are becoming increasingly common in Western Europe. With new plots surfacing every month, police across Europe are arresting significant numbers of women, teenagers, white-skinned suspects and people baptized as Christians -- groups that in the past were considered among the least likely to embrace Islamic radicalism.

Teenagers are unlikely to embrace Islamic radicalism? If they are Muslim teenagers it goes with the territory. If someone is baptized as Christian that does not make them immune to conversion to other religions. Once they become Muslims their embrace of jihad is a pretty small intellectual step.

Islam is not a religion of peace. The Western peoples should separate their societies from Muslims. Europeans could pay Muslims with residency rights to leave Europe. Illegal alien Muslims should just get deported.

riot in the netherlands:
"It appears that the riots were sparked when a Dutch man, who had taken a knife away from a Moroccan youth, was shot dead by a police officer."

As the separation between the upper and lower classes increases in Europe (it is increasing like the United States), this might aggravate the situation with the Islamic terrorism as a form of class warfare, including the white Muslims who were born Christians (both rich and poor Christians are converting to Islam for some reason.) Since Islam advertises and promises its own version of socialism in some sense, those Europeans who feel insecure with the competitive system, might be tempted to accept a system that gives them equality and security, in exchange for the willingness to give up freedom (small price for some people.)

It's all about the status hierarchies. Europeans like to look down on other Europeans. According to Islam, if one converts to Islam, one can look down on anybody who hasn't.

AT THE RISK OF BEING A BORE, I feel compelled to repeat *ad nauseam* a trite little phrase that I'm sure Randall has anticipated within one second of reading this, but nevertheless, sums up the whole issue in a nutshell with full completeness:
"The political classes of (formerly) White western nations would rather pay for indigenous Whites to go away and keep the muslims".

Don't believe me?
Well, many believed that the Earth was flat.

Muslims can now legally beat their wives in Germany because "it is their religion"...

I think that judge made a mistake. A very big one for womens rights all over that country. There are other articles as to the possibility of why, and how she had been a victim of domestic terrorism herself in a similar case, but the wife and her counsel ended up dead in that judges courtroom.
