See how out of touch they are. It wasn’t a long time ago where there was constant denial that Muslim terrorism had any risk of spreading further. After all, they argued, Jihad was only a call for a tiny small few Muslims. And ISIS “was only” 40,000 man strong.
Little do they understand that jihad is the call for 1.5 billion Muslims. Anywhere, at anytime they like. They don’t need to be affiliated with any particular group and can go ahead on their own. Their sole jihad is equally valued and awarded by their Allah.
UN WARNS TERRORIST COULD CREATE A NUCLEAR BOMB
Terrorists have the ‘means, knowledge and information’ to create a nuclear bomb, the head of the UN atomic watchdog has warned in the wake of the Brussels attacks.
The warnings of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Yukiya Amano come just days before world leaders meet for an important summit against ‘nuclear terrorism’.
‘Terrorism is spreading and the possibility of using nuclear material cannot be excluded,’ Mr Amano told AFP.
‘Member states need to have sustained interest in strengthening nuclear security.
‘The countries which do not recognise the danger of nuclear terrorism are the biggest problem.’
According to the International Panel on Fissile Materials, enough plutonium and highly enriched uranium still exists to make 20,000 weapons of the magnitude that levelled Hiroshima in 1945.
A grapefruit-sized amount of plutonium can be fashioned into a nuclear weapon, and according to Mr Amano it is ‘not impossible’ that extremists could manage to make a ‘primitive’ device – if they got hold of the material.
‘It is now an old technology and nowadays terrorists have the means, the knowledge and the information,’ he said.
