Hristo Smolenov, antiterrorism expert: Battle now is for expansion of the social base of jihad19 June 2017 | 20:09 | FOCUS News Agency
In the psychological war, called contemporary terrorism, things are going towards fierceness, he commented, adding that terrorist acts can be deceitful, i.e. a manipulated man who presents himself as a Christian to attack a Muslim community. Smolenov reminded that only a few days ago Islamic State threatened to punish those Muslims who refuse to radicalise, who actually do not support it. Those members of Western Muslim communities who do not respond with enthusiasm in supporting jihadists, are subjected to blackmail, pressure and even acts like this. Perhaps this is the real picture, the expert said.
He also commented on the case in Paris a few hours ago in which a car rammed into a police vehicle and exploded. The complexly designed acts give way to seemingly improvised but banally effective acts that create a feeling of mass insecurity, he said.
