The sheer terror that hit Paris on the 13th has everything to do with a monstrous ideology that has found a safe haven in the troubled pockets of the Middle East, and is spreading its vicious tentacles into Europe.

One week into the attack, the facts from the investigation points to European nationals and not Syrian refugees as the terrorists behind the operation.
