Belgium Police Arrest Four Muslims for Terror Plot With ISIS

Belgium authorities took into custody four people and charged them with involvement in a terrorist organization in a raid that led to the police search of 15 homes in Antwerp, Ghent and Deinze.

Prosectors said police didn’t find any weapons or explosives. But evidence pointed to the four Muslims taking part in activities tied to terror groups, including ISIS.

The Associated Press has the emerging details:

“Belgian prosecutors say four people have been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist organization, including by funding it and recruiting people to fight with the Islamic State group in Syria. …

“Prosecutors say 15 people were questioned, of whom four were charged. The prosecutors say there was no established link with the suicide bomb attacks, claimed by Islamic State, which killed 32 victims in Brussels in March.”

In March, the terror attacks took the form of three coordinated suicide bombings, including one at Brussels airport and one at a heavily used Metro station. More than 300 were injured during the attack.

ISIS shortly after took responsibility for the bombings. Police, meanwhile, believed the terrorists involved in the Brussels attack were the same ones affiliated with the terror assault in Paris in November 2015.

As Christine Williams with Jihad Watch writes: ISIS is hardly the junior varsity team of President Obama’s imagination.

From her post:


“Over two years ago, the Islamic State began its overseas operations of recruiting, training and sending jihadis to Western Europe and North America. They have been able to move more or less freely in and out of Western countries. According to counter-terrorism officials, there are now ‘mature, clandestine networks’ which are ‘increasingly responding to calls to accelerate attacks globally as the group suffers setbacks at home.’

“Islamic State jihadists have also infiltrated through the refugee streams of the West, and joined fellow jihadists in Western countries. This problem has been handled in such a disastrous manner all across Europe that ‘counterterrorism veterans in Europe and the United States’ are now saying that they ‘warned politicians about’ it, as reported in a PBS feature, ‘How Europe Left itself Open to Terrorism.’”
