  1. The one “jihadist” arrested in Czech republic was quite harmless probably insane man, rather a silent type, who decided, that he will travel to Syria to join ISIS. He was arrested some 4-6 years in prison just for that intention…
    (While one can agree, that we need to get rid of terrorists, such abuse and destruction of freedom by jailing a man just for an intent to travel somewhere is alarming…)

    The chart clearly misses England…
