Check out a dozen people and policies who whose omissions and commissions have helped make Molenbeek a breeding ground for Islamic terrorists. The Schengen zone for open movement of people is listed as one of the causes. They left out weak external border controls.
The most important thing to understand about the Islamic terrorist threat in Europe: It could be very rapidly and greatly reduced. How? Get rid of the jihadists in Europe. First, stop The Camp Of The Saints migration wave. Then deport the known 5000+ jihadists known to security services in France and some thousands more known jihadists in other European countries. My guess is that about 30,000 deportations would slash the risk of terrorist attacks by at least an order of magnitude and probably much more. Thousands of lives would be saved.
Additional steps would help. For example, the mosque preachers who deliver messages that create the fundamentalist mindset would need to be deported too to reduce the local production of new jihadists. Also, radicals getting deported could be offered money to identify other closet radicals. Also, siblings could be offered citizenship buyouts. Also, criminals in radical neighborhoods convicted of crimes could be given the option of deportation with a cash award. This would reduce the supply of people who are at much greater risk of Islamic radicalism.
The biggest problem with the terrorists is the circumscribed list of options that liberals are willing to use to deal with them. Expand beyond that circumscribed list (in other phrasing, expand the Overton Window) and it quickly becomes very easy to solve the problem. Stay within the liberal play list and the problem can only get worse.
For many problems we face today options that solve them are not allowed. Why is that? Will the rise of internet forums of discussion which are not controlled by the mainstream media gate keepers cause a large enough shift in public opinion and a large enough organized grassroots expression of anger that growing problems will be fixed?
