Worst places to be a terrorist

The U.S. and Israel didn't make the cut. How 'bout that.

Surprisingly on the list? France:

The French actually have some of the world’s toughest and arguably most effective antiterrorism laws. In France, terrorist investigations are overseen by a special unit of magistrates with unprecedented powers to monitor suspects, enlist the help of other branches of law enforcement, and detain suspects for days without charges. Additionally, prosecutors have a mandate to pursue terrorists abroad if the suspect or victim is French. France is also not shy about deporting Muslim clerics it views as threatening.

Something to keep in mind the next time the Euros seek to lecture us about our anti-terror policies.
