A Terrorist Attack in The Netherlands Averted

Today German authorities have arrested two men of Somali origin who were bound to Amsterdam on a KLM flight from Cologne. It is not believed the men were going to hijack the airplane but rather were going to commit an act of terror in Holland. This is based on a suicide note found in their apartment.

The Netherlands is a prime target for Islamic terrorists because of the film Fitna produced by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders. Former Dutch parliamentarian Ayaan Hirsi Ali is also well despised by Islamic fundamentalists for her public critiques.

It is good to see the German authorities are keeping their eye on the ball. I can only hope that other European nations are as vigorous in their pursuit of those who would commit mass murder against innocent civilians in the name of jihad.
