THE EU ADMITS FAILURE: ‘Expect a wave of terror attacks in Europe’
MK Berko, a counter-terror expert, tells Arutz Sheva ‘jihad tourists’ will ramp up their assaults, and Europe needs to learn from Israel.

MK Dr. Anat Berko (Likud), an expert on investigating terror, spoke to Arutz Sheva on Tuesday about the wave of bombings in Brussels earlier in the day that left 34 murdered, which was later claimed by Islamic State (ISIS).
“Jihad tourism is returning home,” said Berko, referencing the large number of Muslim jihadists who left Europe for Syria and other battlefronts in the Middle East, and have now made their way back home.
“The terror assault on European soil is nothing new. This is not the first assault, and also not the last. Jihad tourists are returning home to the Islamist enclaves with ideologies from the school of thought of ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood. They are the ones who will cause terror attacks on European and American soil,” she emphasized.
Discussing the gap between Western culture and the devout Muslim lifestyle of the terrorists, she said, “the Western lifestyle undermines their existence in the most personal sense and they go out against it. Therefore we will see more attacks with more than one terrorist as in this case. Those who thought that the terror would stop at the state of Israel were wrong. We will see the wave of terror attacks strengthen.”
Berko assessed that last Friday’s capture in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect from November’s ISIS attack in Paris, was not the motivation for Tuesday’s onslaught.
