I haven't seen any discussion on this story by Paul Williams. It's in the print edition, but seems to have vanished from the Indo website.

"Khuram Shazad Butt (27) and Rachid Redouane (31), who with a third accomplice were shot dead by police following the June 3 attack, reconnoitred a number of high-profile locations in Dublin two years ago, including a nationally known family friendly tourist attraction, it has been learned.

It is believed that the two jihadists changed their plans after they were convinced by a terrorist mentor that Ireland would suit Isis better as a logistics base from where internet frauds could be carried out to raise funds."

It confirms what many of us suspect. The reason we haven't had a terror attack is, ironically, because of the ineffective nature of our security services. It makes Ireland an attractive base for terrorism.

Do we have to wait for an incident. Will even an incident be enough to mobilise resources, given the lack of engagement with defence and security matters in our political deliberations?

It tallies with the story recently about the man who ended up in Ireland despite being found guilty in France of planning terror attacks both there and here. The SC recently blocked his extradition because of 'fears' he might be tortured if returned home (aw).

The cases and people involved are different. But still it tallies with reports we are in the crosshairs of Islamic terrorists.

What terror attack here? And what reports that we are targets of Islamic terrorists? The Op says otherwise, and that we are to be used as a base, not as targets. So which is it?

Ireland is a soft target for violent extremists? Guess what, so is everywhere else.

But Ireland is definitely a huge big sloppy slow-moving target for bullsh*t news stories.

This country is soft on Islam, a fool deserves to be fooled and this country should receive no sympathy when the Muslims start to kill us. My money is on a car attack on grafton street or Henry street in the weeks before Christmas.

Finally, the knowledge economy pays off.

Yeah because our own police force is such a bastion of reliability......:lol:

Thank Christ for the EU ....the only people who were prepared to listen and take action on behalf of the Irish motorist over the rip off prices being charged by insurance companies.....

The EU needs an anti Muslim unit , where we can seek them out across borders and stop them before they attack. Internment is also required along with better law to make phone tapping etc easier. Many people still don't realise that these guys want to destroy us . No low is too low, the video of the Barcelona attacks was horrendous but yet Muslims are still welcome? The mayor of Barcelona, a leftie, laughs at the dead and we have a T.D welcoming a young terrorist, our government campaigning for a Muslim to be released and sent here. It's crazy beyond belief.

Maybe if we stopped Bombing the sh1t out of them they might not be so angry at us, eh? The ISIS attacks in the 70's and 80's were terrible, weren't they?
