AP flashes a clear warning to the West:
AP highlights that the U.N. Security Council does not address what to do about radicals who stay at home but espouse the Islamic State group’s goals. Securing the City by Christopher Dickey lays out for Americans exactly what should be done. Every politician should be demanding that we close our borders to Muslim immigration, especially from the Middle East and North Africa, as well as immediately begin to cancel visas for students from the radical Muslim world. As Robert Spencer, the director of Jihad Watch writes Arab Winter Comes to America. What are our elites in Washington doing to safeguard America?
Nations are honing mechanisms to monitor Westerners who head to Syria and Iraq to fight in the jihad, the better to catch them when they return home with deadly skills. But how do you track someone who reads the Islamic State group’s call in a newspaper or on a mainstream website, and then carries out a spontaneous attack?
Experts in terrorism agreed that the options to counter-act the call on all Muslims to kill are virtually nil, beyond bolstering security forces’ visibility — thus allowing them to act quickly if need be.
“We are not waging a war between east and west, or Christianity and Islam,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday. The French government says what it calls the “butchers” of the Islamic State group don’t represent Islam.
But Valls acknowledged that France is facing an unprecedented challenge from “the enemy within.”
