In Amsterdam, 22 jihadis stormed my book launch, ordered my execution and threatened to break my neck. Police arrested two men and found a third with a loaded machine gun at home. They're members of "Sharia4Belgium," an international network with cells in most of the countries I'll be visiting in the next 6 months.
