“The suspects’ lawyers dismissed the allegations as a ‘simple farce’ and said their clients were merely ‘practising their religion.'” Oh yes indeed.

“Bosnia says arrests foiled Islamist attack in Sarajevo,” AFP, December 26, 2015:

Sarajevo (AFP) – A Bosnian anti-terrorism prosecutor has said the recent arrests of 11 suspected jihadists prevented an attack that purportedly would have killed around 100 holiday revellers in Sarajevo, state television said Saturday.

The arrests were carried out Tuesday in several parts of the Bosnian capital.

On Friday, a Sarajevo court ordered eight of the suspects to be held for 30 days, Bosnian television reported.

It quoted prosecutor Dubravko Campara as telling an investigating magistrate that the group were planning “a terrorist act during end-of-year celebrations.”

“They were threatening to carry out an explosives attack in which 100 people would be killed,” RTRS television quoted Campara as saying.

The suspects’ lawyers dismissed the allegations as a “simple farce” and said their clients were merely “practising their religion”.

Prosecutors said the suspects habitually gathered at a place of worship set up in a rented house in a Sarajevo suburb.

After the arrests, prosecutors gave reporters a photograph taken at the site showing a printout of the Islamic State group flag on the wall.

“Physical evidence of the links with the Islamic State group structures were seized,” Campara said, while adding that no explosives were found in the raids.

The operation was conducted in several Sarajevo districts, including in Rajlovac, where two members of Bosnia’s armed forces were killed in November in a suspected terror attack by a man who then blew himself up.

Around 40 percent of Bosnia’s population of 3.8 million are Muslim, most of whom follow a moderate form of Islam. Orthodox and Catholic Christians make up most of the rest of the population.

Of some 200 Bosnian nationals who joined jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq in 2012 and 2013, at least 26 have died while about 50 have returned to the Balkan country, authorities say….

Jihad as simple farce.... I don't think so. Does anyone anymore? Practicing their religion. Most assuredly so.

That government should make sure that no one can practice this "religion" in such a manner ever again.

These attempts and the successful attacks will continue despite the fact that none of this would be happening if there were leaders of the Western countries instead of groveling politicians bowing to "popular" opinion to ensure their re-election.
