Brussels hit by suicide bombing days after capture of terrorist

Just a few days after one of the Paris terrorists was arrested, Brussels has been attacked, in both the airport and subway system:
Today's terror attacks in Brussels come as no surprise to experts who for months have warned of the dangers of Molenbeek - a suburb of the city now considered Europe's hotbed of jihadism.

Just days after Paris bomber Salah Abdeslam was arrested in the suburb, terrorists today detonated bombs at the city's airport and metro, killing at least 34 people.

[...] Molenbeek, located in the west of the city, was known during the Industrial Revolution 'Little Manchester'.

However, today is more closely resembles a North African ghetto.

With the city's own mayor once describing it as a 'breeding ground for violence', unemployment and overcrowding among Arab immigrant families and youthful despair is thought to fuel refuge in radical Islam.

But as the Brussels district remains the centre of Europe's jihadi activity, Belgian authorities are continuing to ask what makes the narrow, terraced streets of Molenbeek different from a thousand similar neighbourhoods across Europe.

Four-storey houses are divided into tenements and are rented out to the area's 100,000 population - predominantly second and third-generation Moroccans and Turks.

Since the great majority of Molenbeek's residents are Muslims, there are 22 mosques.

However, it is to here that some of the worst terror attacks in Europe are regularly linked.
No doubt, they won't contemplate a single aspect of Islam, the ideology fueling the jihad. Here's another report from the AP/CTV:
A Belgian prosecutor says police raids are happening around the country after two men "probably" staged suicide bombings at the Brussels airport and a third fled.

Prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw said Tuesday that the third suspect is actively being sought by police.

At least 31 people were killed and nearly 190 wounded in the two airport bombings and another in the Brussels subway system.

Prime Minister Charles Michel said the country will tighten security at its borders. He declared three days of national mourning after what he says were probably the most tragic attacks the country has seen in peacetime.
Does he understand that the policies his country was embracing also led to this horrific tragedy? Police action is not enough. Now, another horrible murder's taken place, all because Europe's politicians don't have what it takes to confront challenging issues.
