Brussels—where €500 buys a gun in 30 minutes—has become Europe’s jihadi capital

This quaint lowland city has become the unlikeliest hotbed of terrorism in the world. If you’re looking for why, the answer’s not hard to find.

Here’s your pull quote:

The mayor of Molenbeek (pop. 90,000) has called her district “a breeding ground for violence” and it’s easy to see why. Molenbeek’s unemployment rate is 30%, treble the national average, with youth unemployment thought to be around 40%. Some suggest the issues of poverty, overcrowding, as well as the government’s failure to integrate immigrants, has created a hotbed of jihadism.
