How does that compare to arrests of Christians for expressing their feelings?

BLOTTO's picture

And yet in the 90's when Serbian Orthodox Christians (WW2 Allied forces) were dealing and fighting the terrorist was the Serbs who were the villains...

One should be careful when interpreting terrorism statistics as the state uses them not only against jihadists but journalists/dissidents as well.

The UK councils still use anti-terror legislation to find out which parents are falsely declaring their address for school selection purposes.

Some how I don't think the average mom is about to blow up a stadium if her kid doesn't get their first choice of school.




..mind you, time-of-the-month, who knows? ;)

FIXING the headline:

WTF Chart Of The Day - Mapping Jewish Terrorists Arrests Across Europe


Kotzbomber747's picture

The quantity of arrests hardly means anything. What is needed is a complete and total reversal of the politically correct thinking and multicultural madness that has taken over any form of common sense the western world.

Bingo! Multiculteralism was the gasoline soaked house for WWI. Some ideologies cannot peacefully coexist with others.

More fake news on ZH.

A quick Google search for "arrested on terrorism" 2016 uk found many arrests.

In addition from the linked article

"In 2016, a total of 142 failed, foiled and completed attacks were reported by eight EU Member States. More than half (76) of them were reported by the United Kingdom. France reported 23 attacks, Italy 17, Spain 10, Greece 6, Germany 5, Belgium 4 and the Netherlands 1 attack."

"Quantity" definitely means something...look at Sweden. Derp!

There, you'll read all about the Jews and Islam and some very deep thoughts I had after my wife walked out on me!



el buitre's picture

In one of his best interviews ever, Ole Demmegard convincingly documents that most "terror attacks" in the EU and USA in the last 5 years are actually staged events with crisis actors and complete complicity of the lame stream media.  It becomes totally obvious when actual details are scrutinized.  They have literally become a business and a traveling freak show.  IMO a must listen.

Clinton blew up a Serb MATERNITY HOSPITAL, and it was the World Jewish Congress that supported the bombing of the Christian Serbs for the benefit of Moslem Albanians.

If you don't know the PLAYERS you can't really know what the game is:

If I remember correctly Serbs were the first to went in and start killing civillians. How that makes them any better then radical islamist ?
By the way, weren't Serbs the ones who were slaughtering other Christians like Croats, Slovenians and other Serbs who didn't want to join thier "jihad" ?
Serbs in that war during 90s were nothing but Balkan version of ISIS. Let's not forget they walked into Srebrenica (place in Bosnia) where they slaugthered over 8000 people including children.
Serbs are Balkan trash and lunatic fascists nation, they always were. By the way big part of their army in WW2 (I see someone mentioned that in comment) was in alliance with German nazis.

I can say this, the "arrests" don't even equal the victims of the one attack on Bastille Day alone. 

And I don't even know how to interpret what is meant by "arrests", as arrests don't necessarily mean incarceration or expulsion...a country can have 500 arrests and 500 releases. 


Wut...troof hurtz? ;-)

mmm...Bastille Day. What a bunch of Bolshevik

Nothing new under the sun.

They can arrest as many of these criminal bastards s as they want.  With the apparent exception of France, they don't want to.

Sudden Debt's picture

what amazes me is that there's no terrorists in Switzerland and Luxemburg...

political_proxy's picture

Pales in comparason. Christians are killed straigth away.

Cassandra.Hermes's picture

The country with most native born muslim(12%) has 0 arrests, and only terrorist attack was carried by Canadian vs Israeli tourist bus.
I'm talking about Bulgaria, they even have muslim party in their Congress.So it is not the number og Muslims but something else that cause them to turn in terrorists.

Tiwin's picture

If any arrests of Chistians are happening , you can bet your ass that Trumps favorite people, the jews, and Israeli Jews above Americans, are right behind that.


How does that compare to the MURDERS of Americans by American police? 

American police kill about 1200 people without benefit of trial every fucking year- a 9-11 every 2 1/2 years.

556 as of june 17 this year, a *lil* less than last year....

This is the 'real' terrorism.

aloha_snakbar's picture

...the EU saw a total of 1,002 arrests for terrorism offences in 2016


But but but... its the religion of PEACE....

Billy the Poet's picture

Jesus was arrested too on a death penalty offense. Hillary wasn't arrested at all. Being arrested isn't necessarily an indicator of anything other than being arrested.

Tiwin's picture

If Jesus staged his Second coming today in modern America....police would beat and tase him before arresting him for assault on a law officer- if they didnt fucking outright shoot him dead.

Meanwhile the average Law n Order ZHer would cheer them on for cleaning the streets of homeless,whilst Your humble commentator Tiwin adds yet another tally to this year's American police killings.

Hillary , meanwhile will continue to enjoy 6 figure delayed payouts for misdeeds both her and hubby committed while in public service-and will likely never be arrested.

 Father, why have you forsaken me?

Why does Hillary still slither free?


Not a good poet.

Note that everyone arrested after the Manchester bombing has been released wthout charge,

now that the press have moved on to the latest Trump Outrage/Royal Baby/Celeb with big tits seen in bathing suit.

This stat, on its own, is useless.

We don't know the charge rate, the conviction rate, the "whether they are really guilty" rate, the average sentence, or the effect on actual offence rate, which would tell us more about the effectiveness of the first 3. Nor do we know if it's low level 'helpers' or bombers/kingpins being arrested.

Stop behaving like the MSM. This kind of stat, on its own, is just clickbait. Do some proper research, or go home.


needsmoresauce's picture

Since November, for some reason, no idea why... ZH has behaved exactly like the MSM, just with a different editorial leaning. Not sure what changed in November and went full retard in January, but something happened and they got to become what they apparently fought against.

Supporting the executive branch without question is the new punk rock...

CRM114's picture

That's overly harsh for several reasons.

Firstly, there seem to me to be only about 15% of articles that are now unreasoningly MSM-like, whereas it was about 5% before. The MSM is still batting 1.000

Secondly, they still publish the controversial stuff.

Thirdly, we get to comment unedited.

So, maybe slightly MSM-ish, but nowhere near as bad.

MuffDiver69's picture

Only reason I am here is comments

needsmoresauce's picture

Maybe it was a bit harsh, just speaking from my personal experience of regularly visiting the site for the last 2 or 3 years and how that's changed over the last 6months.

The Signal to Noise ratio has just gone too far for me, the site provides little of value now.

There was an opportunity to raise the bar and stand by some principles, be above the partisan politics and campaign slogans.

The media, both mainstream and alternative should be holding politicians, government institutions, market makers and corporations to account... Not running cover for the ones they hope are on their side because of a few soundbites and wishful thinking.

The 'our side' is now being placated with empty rhetoric and a symbolic leader after 8 years of the 'other side' being placated by empty rhetoric and a symbolic leader. The direction is still the same, just with a different section of society being pandered to.

OverTheHedge's picture

Zerohedge evolves in response to its readership. What has happened before now is that something newsworthy occurs to drag a huge new intake of readers  who get to swamp the site with their slanted views, but then eventually they get too depressed by all the gloom and doom, and slope off back to happy self-referencing sites that confirm what they already know. What happened last November was trump, and his supporters arriving in droves. Tyler just gives the readership what it wants.

What I wasn't expecting was for the trump chaos to go on this long - trumpets are holding out here way longer than the BundyRanch preppers ever did. Still, it makes for entertaining reading, even if it is mostly biased.

Tyler MKIII is in it for the clicks, not the "truth". (Are we on the third iteration now? I lose count).

Haven't seen Marla around here in a loooooong time. And rarely does a Tyler pop in anymore. Things have changed. ZH still has some scoops and always has a great jump on the news.

Or have you given up on real news completely?

ZH gets their clicks pandering to the Trumpsters. The Russian fake news articles did the trick.

England has 0?

needsmoresauce's picture

As the image notes, only countries with available data were included. ZH is intentionally trying to frame it, drawing attention to the 'lack of arrests' in UK, ignoring the dataset used.


UK has had over 300 terror arrest year to date, approaching record highs.


MuffDiver69's picture

Of course they mentioned 23,000 potential Jihadists walking around..

In which of these sentences, exactly, is ANYONE trying to point to the UK?

I've looked at the article twice, I still can't find it. Help me out here?

swmnguy's picture

If you squint at the chart, you'll see it says data only available from the nations listed.  Perhaps the UK doesn't classify such arrests the same way?  There are numerous other EU countries also in gray, with no statistics available.
