Europe is afraid of "tactics of loners"

34
According to Europol (European Union Police Service), in 2015, 151 people died and more than 360 were injured as a result of terrorist acts in the EU. Europol published the report “Terrorism in the EU: situation and trends”, which describes in detail the state of affairs in European security. The document emphasizes the so-called tactics of loners, which the militants of the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda adhere to.




Europol report was promulgated 20 July in the Netherlands.

As noted in this document, 2015 people died as a result of terrorist attacks in the EU in 151, and even more 360 were injured.

In the European Union, 1077 people were arrested for crimes related to terrorism, of which 424 were arrested in France.

94% of them who tried their hand at jihadist terror were found guilty and prosecuted.

According to the service, 211 of terrorist attacks was recorded in all EU countries. This number is the largest since 2006 of the year, when the EU began to keep annual statistics on the relevant issue. In 2015, attacks were prepared, committed and prevented in 6 countries: Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, and the UK. The maximum number of attacks (103) refers to the UK, next in the list are France with 72 attacks and Spain with 25 attacks.

The overview provided in the police report is an important part of monitoring the situation of terrorism in the EU. In addition to a detailed report on the past year, Europol gave a brief assessment of the recent terrorist incidents. They revealed operational difficulties in detecting “lone attacks” and preventing the aforementioned attacks. Loner attacks are now coming to the fore, according to the website of the police service.

Europol emphasizes that such attacks are a favorite tactic of the Islamic State and Al-Qaida. Jihadists from both factions have repeatedly urged Muslims living in Western countries to carry out single attacks in their countries of residence.

The agency particularly warns that the "IG" at the same time endorses attacks on easily accessible targets, because such attacks "instill much greater fear among the masses."

The director of Europol noted that 2015 had been a year in the European Union under the tragic sign of the mass number of victims of the attacks. In this context, Europol has focused on supporting those operational investigations that relate to the prevention of terrorist attacks and the identification and destruction of terrorists. As a result, a certain strategy of fighting terrorism is being formed.

Currently, as Europol points out, there are two alarming trends: the general threat of terrorism is reinforced by the significant number of militant terrorists who have returned to their country of residence. Many EU member states now fear the growth of nationalistic (xenophobic), racist, anti-Semitic sentiments in their homes. Such a danger exists in all EU countries; therefore, the threat of growth of right-wing extremism is not excluded.

The report also highlights the fact that a significant percentage of all foreign terrorist “travelers” moving from Syria and Iraq are currently women.

On the other hand, there is no concrete evidence that such “travelers” systematically flow into migrant flows in order to get “unnoticed” into coveted Europe. And yet, an investigation into the thirteen November attacks in Paris showed that two of those militants arrived in the EU through Greece and were part of a large flow of refugees heading for Europe from Syria.

The report reports on the importance of creating a European center for combating terrorism, whose task is to combine databases and organize a secure exchange of information between law enforcement agencies.

It is also noted that the 2015 year was a year of legislative changes for EU member states. In order to strengthen the fight against terrorism, 12 member states have passed either new laws or amended existing legislation.

Europol has classified terrorist organizations according to their motivation sources. It turned out that many groups have a “mixture” of motives of activity and ideology, although, as a rule, one ideology or motivation dominates. The categorization of individuals and terrorist groups based on ideology or goals that they share should not be confused with motivating factors and ways of radicalizing individuals and groups, the document says.

Former FSB officer Vladimir Lutsenko is inclined to blame local politicians for the growth of terrorism in the EU.

“It’s not entirely fair to blame for the rapid increase in cases of terrorism. The intelligence services are mainly struggling with the consequences, and the cause of the mass attack of the international punks on Europe is in the policies of European leaders, ”said the expert. Reedus.

According to Lutsenko, those scumbags who crush the children in Nice with a truck have no political task. It is important for them to “prove” to the western man in the street (“the infidel”) that bombers and nuclear submarines are powerless against the “will of Allah”. “In the face of such an adversary, the prospects of Western civilization are not bright,” the expert believes. - The saddest thing is that the leaders of European countries, instead of throwing all their forces and means to fight this plague, suffer from this nonsense: they launch programs to build new Trident submarines or deploy troops in the Baltic States. Are they going to fight on the Tridents in the Syrian desert? Or drown Islamist punks in the marshes of Belarus? "

Recall that after the bloody terrorist attack in Nice, several EU states announced increased security measures. French authorities extended state of emergency on 3 month.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker raised the threat level at EU facilities.

On Wednesday this week, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier called on the EU special services for closer cooperation. His statement came a day after the attack on the passengers of a train in Würzburg (an attack was made by an Afghan migrant who was shot by the police).

The situation in Europe is becoming truly gloomy.

    An attempt to blame everything on "loners" promises many dividends for the supporters of this version. The secret services are removed from accusations of incompetence ("loners" are very difficult), politicians are not accused of dragging terrorists into Europe with crowds of migrants and generally creating a crisis that aggravated xenophobia. Everyone is happy. All that remains is to shut up the already half-smothered media and destroy the evidence. For example, recordings from cameras, etc.: why are they needed, bosses because they have already decided that the "loner", and then someone corrosive will see there "something is wrong", and you will find yourself in the role of Powell with a test tube.

      No one will ever get the special services out of accusations of incompetence. They are paid money for the fact that there were no terrorist attacks, and for the whining of a "loner" it is very difficult "- to fire.

    Dear expert Vladimir Lutsenko was a little puzzled:
    Intelligence agencies mainly deal with the consequences
    .
    Is this a former FSB officer speaking? "Basically" is how many man-hours as a percentage? Well, if there is a "shortage of personnel" (judging by ourselves), then not at all, but, I think, "shortage" is not for the intelligence services of Europe, NATO, and the considerable residencies of the Borns and Bond.

      Partly right. Terrorist attack in Orlando. Impossible to prevent. The special services have to sift through their bases - there are still candidates for replay. A bad example is contagious.

    An inevitable restriction is the "personal freedom" of gay Europeans, which in some countries (in France, for example) has long been bordering on permissiveness. A police officer CANNOT just stop a suspicious person on the street and check the documents ... At airports, they DO NOT SEE those entering the building as much as possible! It also violates their rights.
    But with what zeal the French fought with the police when they tried to encroach on the most expensive - 35! Hourly working week! With such energy, all migrants, and in general Muslims of the country, could be built up and down twice ...
    Yes, there is generally a problem with the mentality of the police. Eyewitnesses testify that when in Nice a truck rushed into the crowd, a few police officers at first waved his hands, instead of opening fire to kill.

    After a young Muslim radical with an ax in his hands attacked train passengers on Monday, local authorities demanded that Islamic lessons be included in the school curriculum throughout the country.

    “It would be appropriate to give Islamic lessons in public schools and in schools overseen by the state,” Gerd Landsberg, head of the local council association, said on Wednesday at the Rheinische Post.

    In this way, the state will have more opportunities to manage the education of Muslim youth, he said.

      And also the lessons of owning an ax, human anatomy and battle tactics with an ax in a train carriage. It really helps a lot.

    Europe is beginning to realize that a visa-free regime is rather bad than good. The Middle East assimilated in the EU today is really a huge threat, they move freely, freely carry explosives, and are free to recruit among newcomers who need a piece of bread. I believe that the new emergency is still ahead and more than once.

      I'm afraid in Russia too. In the sense of emergency.
      Since everything listed by you above is also present with us. Sometimes even on a larger scale.

    Purely philistine, I do not feel sorry for Europe at all. She follows the orders of her 'Master', who at one time bombed the Middle East and North Africa, creating a flow of migrants to the European Union, thereby condemning its people to destruction. This is revenge for the destroyed cities and the lost relatives. On this wave, Daesh raised his head. Now Geyropa is choked with terrorist attacks, which is to be expected.

    Loners are only part of the system, not the spontaneous antics of crazy radicals.
    In the EU, it is more profitable to use single people, in Syria and Iraq large military units.
    And while Europe and the United States pretend that they are fighting terrorists, everything will continue this way.
    And the fear of the loners who originate from the Middle East will continue.

      To do this, we need to ensure the average European salary throughout the country. And it will probably be in 50 years, but not in 5 years. So everything will be chiki bunch. OUR Papuans will climb to us.

    I agree, here even a truck is not needed, enough sharpening, with due dexterity.
    Considering the thoughtful propaganda of IS and the actions of the Western "democratizers" in the Middle East, the performers will not rust.
    In my opinion, there are two ways to deal with this, the first is to arm the population, the second is the new world order (total dictatorship), the adoption, as in Pendoshkania, of the Patriotic Act (for starters) and progressively.
    The first option disappears, because all this multicultural mess was conceived, in my opinion, so that the Europeans themselves want a "strong hand")))
