This ongoing jihad activity accounts for the latest spate of mainstream media articles explaining how Islam really teaches peace, and warning about how Muslims are suffering as a result of “Islamophobia.”
“Armed police shoot man ‘carrying a bomb in a rucksack after he takes a woman hostage’ at Brussels tram station as they swoop on terror suspects linked to ‘imminent attack in France,'” by Sara Malm, Julian Robinson, Nick Fagge and Flora Drury, Mailonline, March 25, 2016:
A woman was taken hostage by a suspected terrorist at a tram stop in Brussels today, witnesses say.
Police shot the suspect as part of a fresh swoop to thwart an ‘imminent attack’ on France.
A second suspect was also shot in the raid, which began in a flat nearby in the Schaerbeek area of north Brussels.
Dramatic footage shows police coaxing a child away from the injured suspect who was shot in the leg at the tram stop amid reports he was carrying a bomb in a rucksack.
Belgian prosecutors confirmed the man was linked to a planned attack in France, foiled by the French authorities last night in a separate raid in Paris.
Eyewitness videos show the incident unfolding at the tram stop where the ‘neutralised’ suspect dropped the bag, which was then investigated by a bomb robot.
A group of women visiting a hair salon opposite the tram stop described the moment they saw police swoop on the man standing with his bag.
Speaking to MailOnline, they said the man had been standing at the tram stop with a woman who was apparently with a young girl.
As police arrived, the man is said to have pulled the woman to the floor with him – apparently holding her hostage. However, the armed officers were able to pull her to safety quickly, dragging the man to the side, the shaken women recounted.
Three people have been detained in the fresh wave of raids with authorities naming them as Tawfik A., Salah A., and the third, unnamed man taken in the Schaerbeek operation.
Two of the three – Tawfik A and the man detained in Schaerbeek – were wounded in the leg, the statement said.
The raid in Schaerbeek comes as:
Six were arrested during police raids in Brussels on Thursday night in connection with the bomb attacks and a new terror plot
Friday’s Schaerbeek raid has been linked to the arrest of convicted ISIS recruiter Reda Kriket in Paris – also on Thursday night
Kriket, a 34-year-old Frenchman, had been in the ‘advances stages’ of planning an attack in France prior to his arrest, and was found with heavy weapons and explosives in his apartment
Two men were held in Germany suspected of being linked to the Brussels bombers
