Convoluted and Deadly

The links and tentacles that jihad creates are transnational and far-reaching. The West is now alert to the problem it has inherited through its generosity in proffering citizenship to a religious class of people known as the Islamic ummah, ushering Muslims into societies where classical Islamic ideation is alien. The destabilizing effect of democratic non-Muslim societies welcoming great numbers of worshippers of Islam has been evident for decades as vocal Islamic group leaderships agitate for Sharia law to be legalized alongside the indigenous system of justice.

The pathology of tribal hatreds, sectarian suspicion and violence, and traditionally-viewed enemies upon whom slanderous accusations are heaped in an effort to delegitimize their presence where Muslims live, are introduced into indigenous welcoming societies wherever Muslim communities grow in strength and isolation from the prevailing social and religious culture. Being forewarned is not necessary translated into becoming forearmed, as can be seen in Paris of November 2015 and Brussels of 2016, let alone the United States, Spain, Russia, and the United Kingdom.

In the most recent atrocities visited upon the central authority of Europe, located in Brussels, the spirit of welcome and equality has been stretched to its limits with the increasingly prevailing sense of foreboding and terror now clouding the public atmosphere. Belgians, born and raised in the country, of Moroccan descent, have distinguished themselves of late as venomous plot-hatchers who have thrown in their lot with Islamic State jihadis. In the space of three months, hundreds of Europeans have been slaughtered.

Interestingly, the man credited with a kind of genius for constructing extremely effective explosive devices which emulate in a sense the barrel bombs that explode with deadly lethal projectiles to make them more lethally effective so beloved of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and used to kill thousands of his own citizens, has perfected explosive devices packed with nails to achieve a similar effect. The difference being, of course, that bomb maker Najim Laachraoui, 24, targeted other Belgians to signal that Islam is seriously on the move toward universal conquest.

But there is also good news in this dismal message since his zeal to slaughter kuffars included a similar zeal to become himself a martyr to reap his rewards as a loyal Islamist pledged to the advance of Islam, in Paradise. He has now definitely been identified as one of the two bombers who set off explosives in the Belgian attacks. This is a man whose DNA has been widely identified; in an apartment in the Schaerbeek section of Brussels where his bomb-making lab was discovered, and on the suicide vests of the Paris attackers. He had produced his last bomb.

He had made his jihadist pilgrimage to Syria in 2013 and returned to Belgium two years later, well steeped in the fundamentals of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant techniques of death-deliverance. He had obviously been an excellent pupil in learning beyond the basics of bomb-making. And that experience made of him a central figure linking the Paris and Brussels attacks which have now been discovered to have links in Germany as well, where German authorities have arrested two Germans Muslims with ties to Islamist extremists.

Another link to Laachraoui has been found in the search for Naim al-Hamed, a 28-year-old Syrian with ties to the bomb-maker and to Khalid El Bakraoui, one of the Paris bombers, whose brother Ibrahim El Bakraoui had been, along with Laachraoui, the two suicide bombers who blew themselves up in Brussels. These demented psychopaths, glorying in performing the work of jihad are crawling out of the dank, dark places where they hide, until they feel -- as independent jihadi cells instructed to wreak havoc in the West -- that the time is right for action.

With the capture and arrest of Salah Abdeslam a week earlier in Belgium, safely ensconced for over four months in his home ghetto of Molenbeek, eluding detection among the hundred-thousand-strong Muslim residents of the Brussels suburb, Najim Laachraoui, good friend of Abdeslam, decided the time was right. Three days after Abdeslam had been captured, authorities asked around in the area for assistance to help find Laachraoui. And the following day he blew himself up at Brussels Airport.

And now, Europe is waiting with bated breath, to see what venue will next be selected as the recipient of Islam's wrath.
