Presumably while their wives are at home, ‘striving to integrate’. More fruits of immigration lunacy from Islamised Europe:
There are currently several Dutch Muslims abroad actively participating in Islamic Jihad, the acting head of the General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) told a Dutch TV station.
According to Jan-Kees Goet, over the past two years several dozen Dutch Muslims have attempted to travel to countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Some of these have succeeded and are still active.
The internet appears to be a catalyst. Dutch Muslim males interested in the Jihad begin an Internet search – then, via hidden sites and forums they are introduced to so-called ‘facilitators’, who provide practical advice and assistance, for example on travel to Afghanistan.
The AIVD says that facilitators are active worldwide. “They are also active in the Netherlands”, says Goet.
Although, as over 10 years have now passed since the events of 9/11, society is paying less attention, the threat of Islamic terrorism is still ever-present.
And not just the Dutch Muslims. This week in Manchester, England, Munir Farooqi, a Pakistani immigrant, was jailed for a life term for Jihad recruitment for the Taliban – i.e. signing up British Muslims to travel to Afghanistan and kill British and coalition forces.
We strongly suspect that every Western country with a significant Muslim population is recruiting from within for Jihad terrorism. But, as in so many other facets of modern society, laissez-faire Multiculturalism, ‘diversity’- obsessed public policy and the mass media are busy shielding the problem from the only people who can effect real change and – armed with the facts – would have the will to do so: the electorates.

Taliban hit bottom, keep digging again – but Obama and Cameron still want to talk to them:
Suspected Taliban militants hanged an eight-year-old boy in southern Afghanistan after ordering his father, a local police commander, to surrender, a government spokesman says.
The child was kidnapped by militants in Greshk district of the southern province of Helmand four days ago and was hanged on Friday, provincial governor spokesman Daud Ahmadi said on Saturday. Read the rest of this entry »
Really? We could have told them that, but it’s nice to have it corroborated:
Most of the major terrorist plots against the West since 2004 had links to Pakistan, including two that targeted Canada, says a study to be released today by a U.S. think tank.
In just over half of the 32 “serious” plots identified in the New America Foundation study, the participants had received either training or direction from jihadists in Pakistan.
The findings underscore Pakistan’s role as al-Qaeda’s primary safe haven, despite recent concerns about countries like Yemen, writes investigative journalist Paul Cruickshank, the study’s author. Read the rest of this entry »
Perhaps we’re just not giving Islamabad enough of your taxpayer $#¥€:
Washington • U.S. officials say Pakistan has apparently tipped off militants at two more bomb-building factories in its tribal areas, giving the terror suspects time to flee, after U.S. intelligence shared the locations with the Pakistani government.
U.S. officials believe Pakistan’s insistence on seeking local tribal elders’ permission before raiding the areas may have most directly contributed to the militants’ flight. U.S. officials have pushed for Pakistan to keep the location of such targets secret prior to the operations, but the Pakistanis say their troops cannot enter the lawless regions without giving the locals notice.
All officials spoke on condition of anonymity. Read the rest of this entry »
Exposing once again the world’s biggest killer of Muslims – other Muslims. And they don’t do it any better than in the world’s biggest failed state:
At least 34 people have been killed and 90 wounded after two explosions ripped through a market in the north-western Pakistani city of Peshawar, police say.
The blasts occurred just after midnight in an area of the city that is home to political offices and army housing.
The number of attacks by militants in Pakistan has risen sharply since al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was killed in a US commando raid last month.
On Thursday, a bombing on the outskirts of Peshawar left four people dead.
An explosive device was planted in a pile of rubbish by the roadside in the Matani area, police said. The victims included a woman and a child. Read the rest of this entry »
