This aggression, in the absence of knowing the details, which has arrested the suspect, once again puts Europe on alert for the possible reappearance of the provoked terrorist terrorabove all, for the performance of “lone wolves”.

In summer of 2016two 19-year-olds who claimed to belong to the Islamic State entered the church of Saint Etienne du Rouvray, in Normandy, and slaughtered the old priest before the parishioners Jacques Hamel.

That same year, 84 people died after Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a truck into a crowd in Nice celebrating the national holiday for the storming of the Bastille.

The fate of the French high school teacher samuel patty it was just as awful. In 2020 one of his students beheaded him on the outskirts of Paris by one of his students after teaching cartoons of Muhammad in class published, precisely, in the magazine charlie hebdo to talk about freedom of expression.

Vienna, London, Brussels…

It is not necessary to go so far back in time to verify that the terrorist threat has been stalking Europe for a long time the solo performance of radicalized individuals.

The scene is reminiscent of the one that took place around a synagogue in vienna three years ago, when a terrorist, who tried to join the Islamic State in Syria and who was on file with the police, shot with automatic and semi-automatic weapons against passers-by and diners in bars and restaurants, killing four people.

Attacks of this type have also spread terror in the United Kingdom, where already in 2013, two young British Islamists of Nigerian origin –who proclaimed themselves soldiers of Allah–, They brutally murdered Private Lee James Rigby. They ran over him in daylight, dragged him along the ground and inflicted several machete blows to decapitate him in the district of woolwich of Greater london.
