Muslim terror attack in Brussels: “when, not if”

Brussels, and particularly the areas around the EU Institutions, are full of soft terror targets, says former US counter-terrorism officer and managing director of Peregine Consultants LLC Joseph Assad. Assad conducted an initial security survey of Brussels on February 10 and discussed his findings with New Europe.

He imparted his insights on the mounting migration crisis and looming threat from terrorist organisations like the Islamic State (IS). Assad has an illustrious history in counter-terrorism matters, with 10 years of experience in conflict-stricken areas in the Middle East and advising state governments on matters related to national security policy with Peregrine Consultants.
