A Jihad Army Walking into Europe

If the Syrian quoted in the following article is correct, roughly 10% of the “refugees” pouring into Europe are mujahideen for the Islamic State or other terrorist outfits. That would mean that 100,000 terrorists have arrived this year in Germany alone.

“I Met Many Radical Islamists Along the Way”

A 23-year-old Syrian who has come to Switzerland estimates that every tenth refugee is an extremist. The business in fraudulent passports is flourishing — and the borders appear porous.

“We will conquer Rome,” is the blustering announcement of the adherents of the Islamic State (IS) which has turned up in video form on diverse networks. The alleged strategy is revealed: Thousands of jihadists should use the present stream of refugees to be funneled into Europe as asylum seekers.

One thing is established: Investigators found a Syrian passport — apparently forged — with one of the Paris suicide killers of November 13th. The authorities presume that he and at least one other perpetrator were able to reach Europe by the Balkan route. So the question is: How simple is it for potential terrorists to mix in with the asylum seekers?

The ID that was found was in the name of Ahmad al-Mohamed, who is supposedly 25 years old and comes from Syria. On the following day, the responsible ministry in Athens announced: “The holder of the passport found on October 3rd at the scene of the crime (in Paris) was registered on the island of Leros (as a refugee) in accordance with the regulations of the EU.”

Shortly thereafter. Serbian police announced that another man with an almost identical passport was being detained. Only the photo was different. Thereupon, news agency AFP announced that the genuine passport presumably belonged to a Syrian army soldier who had been killed fighting for President Bashar al-Assad. It is not yet clear whether the passport found Paris had been left behind accidentally or purposely by the perpetrators.

The independent journalist Simon Jacob knows how hassle-free it is to get a Syrian identity. On his walking trip in the Near East, he was in the southeast Turkish province Mardin. “I was offered a genuine Syrian passport for 2,000 US dollars,” he says. Anyone could have ID made. He was told: “Just bring us a passport photo of yourself and $2,000, and you will become a Syrian.”

Previously, the price was $1,000. Since it became known that the German chancellor was opening the way to central Europe to every Syrian refugee, demand had doubled. Business was booming along the Turkish-Syrian border: weapons sales, smuggling, shakedowns. “You can get an AK-47 for $500-600. Militias from Iraq and Syria also stock up here,” says Jacob. From dependable sources, he also knew that several businessmen from Syria have smuggled entire printing presses over the border with the necessary rough documents. So it was possible to produce genuine ID.

Francis Mamdouh, a 23-year-old Syrian, is certain that extremists using the refugee routes is no isolated incident. Mamdouh left his home province of Hama across the Turkish-Syrian border. First he got to Greece and used the usual route from the Balkans to Austria, arriving in St. Gallen, Switzerland after a three-month odyssey. He traveled part of the way perched with other refugees in a truck trailer. The rest was by difficult sea route and on foot.

You met many, said Mamdouh, who wanted to go to Europe for a variety of reasons: “Controls are not very tight. At the Turkish border, you got through mostly by paying. Anyone who could not pay enough — the Turkish military took their luggage and clothing Border authorities do not really inspect the travelers — it’s all about money. People who tried to run away because they didn’t want to pay, were shot down by Turkish soldiers.” There are many who use the chaos to turn a profit. “There are also other places and crossings to Europe where it is about financial transactions and not real inspection. Refugees excepted.”

Mamdouh says that he met a not inconsiderable number of potential extremists in these three months: “If I had to estimate based on my personal experience traveling, I would say that there is an Islamist in every ten refugees.” As a former police officer, he is familiar with such things. In the battle against terrorist organizations, he was stationed in Damascus, among other locations. He was captured in battle by the IS and held as a hostage for ten days, until a ransom was paid. Another time, he was so badly wounded by jihadist fighters that his torso was full of fragments. A visible scar on his neck testifies to this time.

Since the attacks in France, gruesome stories like this no longer seem so far-fetched. Shock has set in deep, and the West, which has been so coddled by security, must re-orient itself. What to do with the fear, grief and rage? Old debates are re-ignited. The answer at the political level is in a sharper tone. After countries like Poland and Slovakia announced as early as summer that they would accept only Christians from Syria, since the Paris attacks 34 governors in the United States have announced that they will not accept any more Syrian refugees. According to Francis Mamdouh, it is already too late: “Daesh has already reached Europe. I don’t know exactly what they have planned, and I don’t want to fuel any anxieties, but they are here. I met many of them of the on the way who are now in Germany.”

Since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, the UN counts 4.6 million Syrians who have fled their homeland. 8 million are living in Syria as displaced persons. From last January to September, the EU has registered 700,000 new asylum seekers, of whom most want to go to Germany. From the beginning of September to the middle of October, 2015, according to the EU, the number of refugees entering Germany alone was 409,000. The stream does not stop. Greek authorities predict that the arrival of 3.7 million people from Turkey can be expected in the coming months.

A long-term solution to the growing problem is not in sight. Quite the contrary. The terror militia has reached such proportions that the political rift is growing evidence of a deep chasm riven into Western society. Diverse opinions about refugees, religious extremism and security measures are clashing more strongly. Mamdouh is apprehensive: “That is exactly what IS wanted. That we should mistrust the real refugees who are themselves fleeing these kinds of extremists. That free people begin to hate one another.”

Europe seems exhausted, and Turkey is proving to be a dubious partner in monitoring refugees. There is no universal formula for accepting masses of people who need protection and sifting out the dangerous extremists. The fact that the Paris terrorists included French and Belgian citizens raises other questions which extend far beyond the subject of refugees.

Who, really, is financing the arming of possible attackers? Who supports them? What groups are they picking to use as cannon fodder for their ideological madness?

It is in Germany that the phenomenon of the sect-like network of known Islamists exists — at the top are Pierre Vogel and Ibrahim Abou-Nagle — whose ideology hardly differs from that of IS and al-Nusra. Financially and ideologically supported by the Arabic Gulf States, they are active on the internet as proselytizing demagogues, they distribute “READ!” copies of the Koran on European streets or explicitly call in their lectures for despising the freedom-loving Western lifestyle.

Several hundred adherents have gone from the fog of these groups in Germany to jihad in Syria. Groups with similar attitudes and dubious connections are found in other European countries. And isn’t it the Gulf States who accept no refugees, but equip terrorists in Syria? — draw what conclusions you many from that. In Switzerland as well, there are connections to diverse extremists.

  1. Of course there is a huge jihad army invading on foot, by bus, taxi, train, plane and now that so many indigenous have been watered down to virtually no national or other pride many are good to go for a total sell out for a little cash in hand. Its s huge industry now. Too much investment in c$$h values rots other values. Freedom is not free. Freedumb is.

  2. Our mainstream European politicians are being dumb. The general public are only slowly waking to the civilisation threat that Islam currently is and will always be. But – once the people do wake up these wannabe conquerors will be dealt with as befits them.

    It will undoubtedly be one of Europe’s darkest times, a period of remorseless violence as only Western Europeans are truly capable of. I really do feel sorry for these blissfully ignorant Islamic fools.

  3. When asylum seekers take the train it looks like this ….
    The images come from the blog asylkaos.wordpress.com
    – Wrong is that it is a Swedish trains, probably the images come
    from a train in Hungary, because on one of the images to see is a demolished sign with the word “Budapest”.,
    But…the holy seekers are probabely on their way to Swedish milk and honey. http://www.exponerat.net/nar-asylsokande-akt-tag-ser-det-ut-sa-har/

  4. There is along way to go re the awakening of EU Citizens. Time magazine has recently elected Angela Merkel as person of the year 2015.
    (coincidentally they elected Adolf Hitler person of the year 1938) and the reaction from the public was a deafening silence. Just as they were unconcerned by the honouring of a homicidal psychopath in 1938 the German public would appear to be equally blaize about the honouring of a deluded sociopath in 2015. Whilst Frau Merkel remains unchallenged as the unelected de facto “Emperess” of Europe the nightmare will continue.

  5. Look at what happened after the collapse of the Soviet Union. There was a weak state apparatus and political mayhem. The beneficiaries were criminals. The break up of Yugoslavia was a criminal enterprise and what we have with the chaos in the ME is untold opportunity for organised crime.

    It won’t be about Islam in the end it will be about the ISLAMIC MAFIA (ISIS) fighting turf wars with EU mafias! But they will also co-operate – as they are right now. The Italian mafia, as has been reported, is up to its ears in ‘settling’ the ‘refugees’.

    Turkey is a criminal state and a thoroughfare of illicit arms, oil, drugs, prostitution, slavery (for the ME), caviar, cigarettes, people trafficking, organ harvesting, passport fraud and, no doubt, money laundering.

    The collapse of the SU caused the largest exponential proliferation of organised crime in the Modern Era. It has now gone global. If this immigration invasion continues, Europe will begin to look like the Caucasus and the Balkans. As we know, many of the ISIS fighters are Chechen gangsters.

    We are importing not just foot soldiers for Mohammed but mobs for the Muslim (and non-Muslim) criminal cartels! We can see the writing on the wall as law enforcement is already overwhelmed! Unfortunately, our politicians are already compromised as our banking system launders and finances this abomination.

  6. “Investigators found a Syrian passport — apparently forged — with one of the Paris suicide killers of November 13th. ”

    Make that 2 forged passports, at least.

    Given that IS has one Syrian passport making machine, along with thousands of blank passports, there are literally thousands of potential terrorists around in Europe. Add in the fact that Turkey is a haven for passport fraud and that now even forged Greek passports are circulating, it is making the situation very frightening. Worst still, you won’t find much of this info in mainstream media here in Europe.
