When a bomb went on in Europe, we in America consider yourself next in line. Besides the emotional point that most of us are European ancestry, we tent to associate yourself with them? But we are the main target. We are the ultimate evil for international terrorist – jihadist or whatever – groups. Do we concern when bombs go of in Afghanistan or Pakistan?!

There is no such thing as perfect security, and as we saw as recently, as any terrorist attack proves.

Deeply riven by political conflicts between its Flemings and Walloons over political reform, the country was distracted by a domestic political crisis that ran on and off from 2007 to 2011 added up ease to target Belgium.

To begin with, consider the Muslim minority communities of North America and Europe. In the United States, Muslim communities are mostly comprised of reasonably well-off families from numerous Muslim majority countries. Income and education levels are roughly those of average Americans.

y contrast, Europe’s Muslim communities populated by poor peasants who came as guest workers for the burgeoning industries of the postwar period. They were expected to return home. Instead, they stayed even as their industries faded and grew in numbers due to family unification and comparatively high fertility. That is, they came poor and, to a large extent, have stayed poor, with little access to higher education and much higher unemployment rates than the non-Muslim populations. They tend to be concentrated in rundown urban neighborhoods that look more like the places they and their forbears hail from — with their satellite dishes and drying laundry — than the surrounding neighborhoods.

Overwhelming majority of European Muslims stats that they have nothing to do with extremism polls show that they are often as patriotic as or even more so than their non-Muslim fellow citizens.

Nevertheless, according to a Soufan Group report from December, we have by the large more significant present out of total Muslim population the Belgians who gone to fight in Syria or Iraq than US citizens. Compare 470 Belgian Muslims out of 660,000 to estimated 250 American Muslims out of estimate 3.3 million Muslims in the USA.

For example, 470 Belgian Muslims have gone to fight in Syria or Iraq out of a population of about 660,000 — in terms of rate of recruitment, it is the top supplier of militants in Western Europe. As an indicator of radicalization levels, this is pretty definitive.

The United States has spent upwards of $650 billion on homeland security since 9/11.  And this is the major reason to stay calm. Of course, America’s advantages are no reason for complacency.
