Epic Fail: Terrorismebestrijding Europa

, , Leave a comment

Ken je dat gevoel?

Je gaat na kantoor lekker wat drinken, dan wat eten en dan na het eten denk je, ach ik kan nog wel wat meer drinken?

De volgende ochtend ben je dan vreselijk brak.

Ik krijg geregeld datzelfde gevoel enkele dagen na terroristische aanslagen.

De autoriteiten doen dan allerlei “onderzoek”, mensen wordt opgepakt… en de media komt met allerlei leuke feiten.

De kater voelt vrijwel altijd hetzelfde.

De Manchester Moslim Bommer (MMB) bleek al jaren gezellig met z’n vader en z’n broer op en neer te reizen naar allerlei leuke exotische bestemmingen zoals Lybia en Syria. Ook z’n Imam en vriendenkring waren veelvuldig vrij duidelijk zichtbaar in allerlei videos op diezelfde bestemmingen. Vaak tot de tanden toe gewapend, schreeuwend over Allah en dood aan allerlei soorten infidels. De hele club woonde vlak bijelkaar in dezelfde wijk in Manchester, waar ze alom bekend stonden als radicale Islamisten. De hele club bleek tevens bekend te zijn bij allerlei overheidsdiensten. Politie, justitie, OM, anti-terreur brigade, Scotland Yard en MI5.

Dan krijgen we London.

Eens zien?

NYT: London Attackers Slipped By Despite an Avalanche of Warnings.

Een “avalanche” is een lawine.

Nod Yes Icon

LONDON — Islamic State propaganda had been found in the bag of one attacker while he was trying to board a flight in Italy. An F.B.I. informant said he had raised alarms about the second attacker two years ago. The third attacker, denied asylum in Britain, appeared to have sneaked in from Ireland. What has become clear since the Saturday night assault is that again and again, the young men who killed seven people before they were shot to death by the police had been reported to law enforcement authorities, bumping into what should have been the country’s security net, only for those signals to be played down, ignored or missed.

He, wat sneu.

The Guardian: Italian officials alerted UK about Youssef Zaghba, says prosecutor.

An Italian prosecutor who led an investigation into the London Bridge attacker Youssef Zaghba has said officials provided Britain with a written warning about the risk he posed last year, and were so concerned about him they monitored him while he was in the country. Giuseppe Amato, the chief prosecutor in Bologna, told the Guardian that information about the risk Zaghba posed was shared with officials in the UK after he had tried to travel from Italy to join Islamic State in Syria in March 2016. Zaghba’s name was placed on a Europe-wide database that included potential extremists. But the warning about the 22-year old who helped kill eight people and injure 48 more on Saturday night appears not to have been picked up. Scotland Yard has said he “was not a police or MI5 subject of interest”.

Oh, z'n naam stond op een lijst?
Ik ben dol op lijstjes.

Amato said he saw a report that had been sent to London by the chief counter-terrorism official in Bologna about Zaghba, a Moroccan-born Italian citizen who reportedly told officials when he was stopped heading for Syria in 2016: “I am going to be a terrorist.” It has been reported that when that comment was met with shock, he changed it to: “I am going to be a tourist”. “We did our best,” said Amato. “We could just monitor and surveil him and send a note to British authorities, that’s all we could do. And we did it. Since he moved to London, he came back to Italy once in a while for a total of 10 days. And during those 10 days we never let him out of our sight.”

Het. Staat. Er. Echt.

Dus je reist af naar het Kalifaat. Je laat je baard staan, je trekt een mooie jurk aan. Je wandelt met de Koran in je hand door de douane heen. De douanier zegt: “Gut, wat ga je doen in het Kalifaat”? Je kijkt die ongelovige hond indringend aan en je zegt: “Oh, ik ga terrorist worden”.

Dan kom je dus op een lijst.

Daarna mag je niet naar het Kalifaat, maar je kunt natuurlijk wel gewoon door Europa reizen.

(Let je op, lieve Emma? red.)

Italian security sources have revealed that Britain is home to at least 100 other Italians who have been flagged as posing a potential terrorist risk on the same Europe-wide database that Zaghba appeared on. One of the men returned from being with Isis in Syria in 2014, after learning how to fire weapons, undergoing 30 days of Qur’anic learning and being asked if he wanted to be a fighter or a suicide bomber. After he was interviewed last year by British authorities they concluded: “He is not a person of interest and does not represent a serious risk for the national security,” according to security documents seen by the Guardian.

Ik wil graag weten hoeveel gekken vanuit Italia deze kant op zijn gekomen.
Misschien moeten we dat eens navragen bij die Italianen?

Italy’s national police chief, Franco Gabrielli, said on Wednesday that he felt in “a position of strength” on the Zaghba issue. “Our consciences are clear and our papers are in order.”

Thanks. Dat scheelt.

Zaghba moved to London about 18 months ago and was working in a restaurant as a cook and waiter. He twice returned to his mother’s home in a hamlet about 15 miles outside Bologna. His mother, Valeria Collina, 68, said he had become friends with Butt and the third attacker, Rachid Redouane, 30. She confirmed that Zaghba was followed by Italian counter-terrorism officers during his visits.

Jawel.

Zelfs z’n fokking bejaarde moeder wist dat ie een geflipte Moslim terrorist was.

Het aantal dodelijke slachtoffer is inmiddels opgelopen naar negen (9).

Gisteren werden twee lichamen in de Thames gevonden.

Beide slachtoffers waren van London Bridge afgedonderd nadat de truck ze omver reed.

The Independent: London attacker Khuram Butt ‘cautioned by police over extremist behaviour’ six months before rampage.

Dit is de gek uit de Channel 4, “The Jihadi Next Door” documentaire.

Khuram Butt was known to police and MI5 after publicly associating himself with Anjem Choudary and other extremists in his Islamist network. Jesse Morton, a former al-Qaeda recruiter who became an FBI aide after being jailed, said his communications with Butt dated back several years. He described him as the “administrator” for renamed factions of al-Muhajiroun on an online chat platform used by extremists.

En, voelen we ons veilig?

Angela Merkel, Duitsland… heeft de afgelopen jaren twee miljoen vluchtelingen uit het Midden-Oosten en Noord Afrika opgenomen. Zoals je kunt lezen reizen dit soort mensen vrij gemakkelijk door Europa. Als mensen van Italia naar de UK kunnen reizen? Dan gok ik dat ze ook van Duitsland naar Nederland kunnen komen. Sterker nog: die gekken kunnen de bus nemen, de trein, de fokking fiets, zelfs lopen als ze zich een beetje willen inspannen voor Allah.
