None as far as I can see. There was certainly left wing atrocities going back to Stalin's time and the 60's spawned a lot of Che Guevara wannabes but the last decade? Nah. In fact I would extend that to 20 years of more. Looks like religious fundamentalists and right wing nutters have the monopoly on terrorism now.

It seems that the far right want to tar the left as ineffective, sandal wearing, bearded weirdos and rabid militant terrorists at the same time. Provides hours of entertainment watching the Daily Heil readers trying to square that particular circle.

PFR there are extremes on all sides. And they have in common their definition of the problem (someone else) and their solution (kill them and terrify the rest).

The important thing to keep in mind is to "keep calm and carry on" and to know that the extremists are losers who WILL LOSE.

The problem is to minimized the damage in lives and time lost.

It reminds me of an old poster that used to hang in my engineering class: "For every complicated problem there is a simple solution. . .

They can request the UN authorize the subsequent billing for board and lodging to the respective countries of origin of their prisoners.

Europe, particularly Germany and the Nordic countries, has taken hundreds of thousands of Syrians and various ME refugees in an unprecedented resettlement effort. Turkey and Lebanon have sizable resettlement camps. I think the UK and US have some latitude in accepting the odd lot while not forgetting that a legal precedent will be established.
One thing that is being willfully ignored is that the means exist of technologically monitoring an awful lot of people awful closely. Maybe we don't want or deserve it for ourselves, but if I was a refugee with honest intentions I'd welcome it.

In October 2016 in Morocco, 10 women were arrested for plotting a suicide attack during parliamentary elections, four of which had seemingly married Isis members in Iraq and Syria over the internet.
Last year, British security services foiled a terror attack on the British Museum in London, and the country’s first all-female terror cell linked to Isis was arrested and convicted this year. Safaa Boular, a British teenager who went on to marry an Isis fighter online, was part-radicalised by a female Australian national in Syria.
and on and on!

PFR Those that are offspring of recent immigrants should realise that with citizenship comes responsibility. By joining our enemies are they not rejecting the citizenship we offer? Stripping citizenship from a few such people sends a very strong message to those that may wish to follow. There are no quikfixes. Each measured response has an upside and downside. What message is required to be sent and what is the best means of transmission? The unfortunate death of the child reduces the complexity of possible solutions but makes them no easier. The fact many are incarcerated in a warzone is a fault of their own creation. The war in Syria and Iraq has been largely driven by Isis for the last couple of years at least. What justification can be offered to risk additional lives in order to extract them from a hell they were instrumental in creating? Repatriating the millions of refugees would be a far more noble effort in my book.

If anything I have slightly hardened my position. UK law does not acknowledge her defection to Isis is by itself a crime. I would argue it should be. She should be both punished and incarcerated until it is established she poses no threat.

There are those that argue:
she has been groomed, trafficked and horribly abused

She is brainwashed. She was an immature teen when she went. She has lived for years amongst extremists


She was a child when she left and is not yet out of her teens.

etc etc

There are some here who are saying "they were just kids" and are the same people who were campaigning for the referendum voting age to be lowered to 16 on the grounds that people of that age are perfectly capable of exercising mature judgement.

The fluffy bunnies are those that seek excuses and refuse to acknowledge the crime. You backwoodsman have never been among their number on this thread.

PFR that idea is all very well Providing a period on incarceration and extensive interrogation establishes no vestigial threat exists. In the light of my post about underage WW1 volunteers I cannot accept jihadi brides were young easily bamboozled idiots led astray. I see it more as cool, calculated betrayal of their adopted country, as would many other countries. That should incur penalties. Then we can consider reintegration into society(perhaps!)

This is likely the pattern of modern asymmetric warfare. It is well past the time we had the correct legal framework to deal with it. To use a definition of treason developed 700 years ago makes a mockery of both Parliament and the Judiciary.

"It is not a crime, in the UK, to marry an Isis fighter, or travel to the caliphate. The Australians have made it a crime to travel to certain regions, but a similar provision in the UK is only just about to become law. It is a crime to have aided and abetted a proscribed terrorist organisation. But sentences for that have been far too short to reflect what is arguably Ms Begum’s betrayal of her country by helping its enemies. Those enemies seek to destroy our democracy, our human rights and our people."

You could perhaps argue the jihadi bride was a victim when first departing Britain but that argument falls apart when after 4 years the "victim" cries help only because as a hardened jihadist her caliphate is evaporating around her ears and turning into piles of rubble.
