You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.

"U.S. President Barack Obama will invite allies to a Feb. 18 security summit in Washington to try and prevent violent extremism, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Sunday after meeting his European counterparts in Paris.

The gathering of justice and interior chiefs came as France mourned 17 victims of Islamist gunmen this week in the worst assault on its homeland security in decades.

"We will bring together all of our allies to discuss ways in which we can counteract this violent extremism that exists around the world," Holder told reporters.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said after the meeting that European interior ministers had agreed to boost cooperation in an effort to thwart further jihadist attacks."

One proposal involves greater monitoring of public travel: "He said Europe needed urgent progress in establishing a European Passenger Name Record database, which would facilitate the exchange of data about passengers between member states.", but the ones which are more troubling involve the internet.

"Cazeneuve said the Internet needs to remain a space for free expression, but that Europe should fight against abusive use of the web to spread hate speech, anti-Semitic messages and the recruiting vulnerable young people for violence.

"We need to work more closely with Internet companies to guarantee the reporting and if possible removal of all content that amounts to an apology of terrorism or calls for violence and hatred," he said.

Cazeneuve said EU interior and justice ministers planned to meet soon to discuss further action. A European source said the meeting could take place next week in Brussels."

I most assuredly don't want give someone like Holder or this guy Cazeneuve the power to determine what is "inappropriate speech" on the net. In addition, somehow I don't think establishing government controls over the internet is the best way to crush groups like ISIS and Boko Haram, but maybe that's just me.

Boy, will the Europeans be surprised when they walk into Barry's Islamophobia show.

You cannot defeat what you refuse to acknowledge.

Oh, he acknowledges it all right. In the grand tradition of Janet Napolitano, he thinks we're the danger.

I know that it will never happen, but I always wish that someday the media would just stop covering this criminal gang, period.
