European Women turning to Islam religion
The European women are becoming targets for the Islamic men because they look as unlike a terrorist suspect as they sit and chat with friends appearing as indistinguishable from any other young women in the café where they sit sipping coffee.
And that is exactly why European antiterrorist authorities are watching their women citizens across the region.
The death of Muriel Degauque, a Belgian convert who blew herself up in a suicide attack on US troops in Iraq last month, has drawn fresh attention to the rising number of Islamic converts in Europe, most of them women.
"The phenomenon is booming," according to the reporter, and it worries the Christian communities. The difficulty, security experts explain, is that while the police may be alert to possible threats from young men of Middle Eastern origin, but they are more relaxed about white European women.
Terrorists are able to use converts who have added operational benefits in very tight security situations because chances are they will not attract attention.
The newsman continued to report the women who have converted where unable to find answers in the religion they were brought up in and one woman stated that Islam is a religious society of love and peace.
Since 9/11 more and more Europeans are being increasingly open about their desire to follow Islamic ways and an analyst states that these numbers say they are in the several thousands a year.
The newsman concluded with: that this the saddest of situations, this woman, Degauque,who set out on the road to inner peace became a victim of people who set out to use and abuse, thus creating her ultimate death.
