While President Obama responds to the most deadly terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11 by urging Americans to “reject discrimination” and embrace gun control, French authorities are actually taking the real and present danger of radical Islamic terrorism seriously. Over the last few days, they kicked down doors, closed three mosques (with plans to close potentially more than a hundred), and in the process found an alarming number of weapons, ammo, and terrorist propaganda.

In an effort to “close the net on Islamic extremists,” French authorities have begun the process of shutting down radicalized mosques and raiding locations suspected of housing Muslim extremists. France’s Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said that the raids in recent weeks have resulted in the seizure of an unprecedented number of “war-grade weapons.”
“In 15 days we have seized one-third of the quantity of war-grade weapons that are normally seized in a year,” said Cazeneuve.

Since the devastating Nov 13 Islamic terror attack in Paris, French security officials have searched at least 2,235 homes and buildings, confiscated 334 weapons, and taken 232 people into custody.

In a raid of a suspected radicalized mosque on Wednesday, security officials found jihadist documents. Cazeneuve also noted that they placed nine people under house arrest and banned 22 from leaving the country.
The clamp down on problematic mosques is only just beginning, with reports that French authorities have their eyes on between 100 and 160 more that pose a national security threat.

France is not alone in ramping up its anti-terror campaign; several European countries, including Germany, are beginning to take more aggressive action against potential Muslim extremists. German authorities this week sounded the alarm about extremists’ attempts to radicalize Middle Eastern migrants. “Officials said they have encountered at least 100 cases in which extremists have tried to establish contact with refugees,” reports Express.
