Why exactly are authorities “not doing enough to prosecute and imprison those who pose a threat”? Would acting firmly against them be “islamophobic”? Or is too much energy being spent on demonizing foes of jihad terror, such that the cops are just too exhausted to go after the jihadis?

WASHINGTON — The vast majority of terror attacks in France were carried out by Islamic radicals who had been known to police or intelligence services, according to a new report by a global security think tank.
Bratislava-based GLOBSEC examined 22 terror incidents in France since 2012. Nearly 80 percent of the people behind those attacks had been on a terror watchlist, and 97 percent had been on the radar of authorities, according to the firm’s new analysis, obtained by NBC News.
The figures included Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, career criminals with long records who killed 12 people in January 2015 in the offices of the satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Statutes related to providing material support to terrorists, which carry long prison terms in the U.S., are not often prosecuted in France, and jail sentences are much shorter.
“The main issue throughout Europe is the sentencing, which is extremely lenient and also allows for terrorists/jihadists to be freed quite early for ‘good behavior,'” said London-based terror expert Olivier Guitta, founder and managing director of the security firm GlobalStrat….
