The Brussels Connection Why Belgium Keeps Popping Up in Terror Attacks

The Molenbeek district in Brussels is a well-known hotbed of Islamist activity. It has been linked to four major terrorist attacks in recent years. It is also illustrative of the problems facing Europe as it tries to deal with its radicals.
Molenbeek is the Brussels neighborhood that has been associated with four recent planned terrorist attacks, including those in Paris on Friday and the foiled plot against a high-speed Thalys train in August.
