Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Quite right about lone wolf attacks. What is striking is that there have been no collectively-organised attacks since the terrible wave of 2015. This indicates to me that the cops are genuinely on top of it, listening, infiltrating and preventing.

Even the horrible slaughter in Nice in 2016 was a lone-wolf affair. Something that might have been technically prevented on the day, but catching the guy beforehand : no. Each new attack leads to an outcry for new laws to prevent them; concretely, this boils down to a demand for more repression against Muslims.
