BELGRADE, Serbia: A Muslim man was arrested in Serbia on Saturday for allegedly planning terror attacks, police said Saturday
Jasmin Smailovic, a Serbian citizen from the tense southern Sandzak region, joins four other Muslims who were arrested last week for allegedly preparing attacks “against the state” in a secret training camp.
Police said they had found large quantities of plastic explosives, ammunition, face masks, military uniforms and other equipment in a mountain cave that they believe served as a training ground for Wahhabis “” Muslims who practice an austere brand of Sunni Islam promoted by extremists, including al-Qaida.
Western intelligence reports leaked recently have suggested that Sandzak, as well as Muslim-dominated regions in neighboring Bosnia, could serve as a recruitment spot for the so-called “white al-Qaida” “” Muslims with Western features who could easily blend into European or U.S. cities and carry out attacks.
One hopes that this is not just now occurring to Western intelligence. It would have been nice had it occurred to somebody back in the 90s before we bombed Christian Serbs in support of Muslim terrorists.
Several incidents have been reported recently in Sandzak, with the Wahhabis accusing local Muslim clerics of failing to practice “true” Islam and disrupting prayers at local mosques.
