ABC’s Moran: ‘Virus of Islamic Violent Extremism’ Infecting Europe

‘France and right across Europe, including London, is essentially fighting off the virus of Islamic violent extremism’

MORAN: "This was a close call. A very close call. Police on Sunday in Paris arresting a 24-year-old computer science student from Algeria. He was in possession of an arsenal, they say, of heavy weapons, and was planning to carry out an imminent attack on churches ... He was already on a terrorist watch list because he wanted to go to Syria, which is, as you know, ground zero for violent jihad ... Right now, officials are saying they have detained one woman for questioning but they're not saying yea or nay on whether or not there are more involved. What we do know is that France and right across Europe, including London, is essentially fighting off the virus of Islamic violent extremism that is settling into the neighborhoods here,  into the young people and some of them taking a violent revenge on their own societies."
