The Center of Terrorism: It Ain't Where You Think

Hopefully, London's 7/7 will be a wake up call to Europe:
After the London bombings, the first instinct of Italian police was to round up over 100 people in an anti-terrorism sweep. The first instinct of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, meanwhile, was to warn against human-rights violations.

The responses illustrate the European weakness on terrorism: The suspects are plentiful, but the political and legal obstacles to thwarting them are more plentiful, still. More than ever, this weakness has become a global problem. That's because the worldwide center of gravity of Islamic terrorism isn't the Mideast -- it's Europe.
And the US is looking to WEAKEN the Patriot Act?!?!?
