A 17-year old boy linked to extremist Islamic websites has been arrested in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. A homemade bomb was found in his room at his parents' home. The arrest was made in the course of investigations stemming from the murder of Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was brutally murdered by an Islamic terrorist last year.
 



www.bloomberg.com
July 13 (Bloomberg) -- Dutch police arrested a 17-year-old boy at his parents' house in Amsterdam during an investigation into a terrorist group linked to the murderer of filmmaker Theo van Gogh. Officers found a homemade bomb in the boy's room.

The boy, who is Dutch and wasn't identified, was investigated for publishing ``extreme Muslim texts'' on the Internet, and arrested on July 11, a spokesman for the public prosecutor, Wim de Bruin, said today. He appears in juvenile court tomorrow, when a judge will decide how long he can be held.

Authorities are investigating a terrorist group known as Hofstad, which they link to Mohammed Bouyeri, the self-confessed killer of Van Gogh. Bouyeri said he murdered Van Gogh for his criticism of Islam. Prosecutors this week told judges trying Bouyeri the crime was terrorism and they suspect a conspiracy.

Thankfully this person was caught before he was able to use his bomb. The details aren't that clear yet, but it looks like this person is not of Arab descent and converted to Islam on his own.

What the hell is going on at the moment?

Something seriously needs to be done across the world to stop the amount of bombings that are happening at the moment!

Not only did we have the London bombings, we then had ETA kicking off again, and then the blast in Israel, this is getting very worrying!

At least this one was stopped!

You've got to be joking right???

This is homegrown European terrorism composed of Europeans of immigrant descent or converts to Islam who are becoming radicalized and threatening their own countrymen. The U.S. has nothing to do with it. It's Europe's problem.

We're in the War on Terror together, for sure...I'm just saying that America didn't cause this problem and can't fix it by changing its foreign policy as was suggested.

'Shoulder to shoulder'?

Surely the two are linked. Europe needs to crack-down on domestic Islamic extremists. US needs to stop the war on Islam. Without both this will never end

The United States is not in a war on Islam, we're in a war on terror. The U.S.'s vision is a peaceful and prosperous Islamic world that's able to practice its religion freely but respects others.

It's all happening in countries fighting in the US led war in Iraq.
Spain, the UK and the Netherlands are all US allies in the Iraq war.

War on terrorism eh?

How come you haven't hunted down the KKK?

Or Noraid, School of the Americas trainees, etc etc. Your definition of terrorism is very selective and depends on who's doing the dying.

I'm not sure what you guys are talking about as I know of no terrorist attacks in the U.S. by any of these groups in the recent past.

The War on Terror has two fronts -- the homefront that each country is responsible for in its own territory (of course with intelligence sharing when applicable), and the proactive front in the Middle East that we are working together on.

Choose your own digit.

Make Amsterdam free once more for hashish and hookers. See how Islam likes that.

Erm, Spain backed out, AceOfBase, you know, withdrew troops and all.
Surprised you forgot being that you made such a big deal out of it.

As for the coincedence, it is nothing but that, AceOfBase.
All those countries mentioned either have ethnic issues or significant Muslim populance. As such, it is what it is being called in the UK currently: "bombers that are 'home-grown'".

Question: did the US make these countires join the Coalition effort in Iraq, AceOfBase? Nice try....not.

The 'pro-active front' was started after terrorism in the US, we supported you.

I think you're saying that if Europe/ UK decides on a non-military 'hearts & minds' initiative as response to this that the US won't support us. Is that how you see it?

Hmm maybe NORAID wasn't a one-off

The only way you can win hearts and minds is to overthrow the totalitarian regimes oppressing the Middle Eastern peoples and help them build democracy. That's the painful lesson that's taken us decades to learn.

! WHAT?!?!



Ku Klux Klan, secret terrorist organization that originated in the southern states during the period of Reconstruction following the American Civil War and was reactivated on a wider geographic basis in the 20th century. The original Klan was organized in Pulaski, Tennessee, during the winter of 1865 to 1866, by six former Confederate army officers who gave their society a name adapted from the Greek word kuklos (“circle”). Although the Ku Klux Klan began as a prankish social organization, its activities soon were directed against the Republican Reconstruction governments and their leaders, both black and white, which came into power in the southern states in 1867.

1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama was all over the news!

Between Jan. 1, 1956, and June 1, 1963, the Ku Klux Klan was suspected of at least 138 dynamite bombings of black residences, churches, synagogues, and integrated facilities across the South.

Plus countless attacks(including bombings) on non-whites during the 70s,80s,90s,

How dangerous is domestic terrorism?
An estimated 10,000 to 100,000 people belong to right-wing militia groups, but their level of involvement varies, and the extremist core of this movement is smaller

There is another way - overthrow the totalitarian despotic regime oppressing those to the West of us and work for a better world.

Just because we now have dead at home don't fool yourself we'll follow your agenda

Of course there's been a few isolated attacks but nothing major except the Oklahoma City bombing...and the gov't is doing everything it can to fight such groups. They're the total enemies of the U.S. Federal government since one of their goals is to topple it. Believe me, the U.S. gov't isn't coddling such right-wing radical groups.
