Over the weekend, it was reported that the Belgium terror plot was part of a broader effort to penetrate the country’s only two nuclear facilities. According to the Daily Mail, Khalid and Ibrahim el-Bakraoui, the jihadi suicide bombers in last week’s terror attack, were surveilling the atomic facilities for weeks and seemed to have contact with some workers within the site. Eleven workers at the nuclear plant have since had their badges revoked.
This is no joke. This is probably the closest thing to nuclear terrorism we’ve witnessed in the age of jihad, and the plot was hatched in a western country by children of Islamic immigrants born in Belgium.
If you think for one minute this problem is limited to Europe, think again. Every week there is another incident of a homegrown terrorist arrested in any one of our fifty states on charges of aiding ISIS or some other radical Islamic group. And they are invariably affiliated with local Mosques run by offshoots of the Muslim Brotherhood. The frontline in this war against Jihad is not in Syria; it’s right here in our backyard. The first objective should not be the placement of American boots on the ground in Syria, but ensuring that their boots are not on our ground.
This week’s news from Belgium demonstrates that Ted Cruz was exactly right when he said that in addition to stopping the new flow of Islamic immigrants to the U.S., we must “patrol and secure” Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized. The next president could send troops all over the Middle East and even end all immigration from that part of the world. But if nothing is done to mitigate the radicalization of the over three million Muslims already living in America, we will be confronted with the calamity of Europe in just one generation. And if nothing is done about the influence of the enemy within — the Muslim Brotherhood — the defeat of ISIS would be almost moot.
