Well, the Germans can’t say that nobody warned them.

Members of Islamist Group in Germany
Report: About 60 Men From Terror Militia Came As Refugees
About 60 fighters from a Syrian Islamist Militia are living in Germany, according to media reports. The Office for the Protection of the Constitution [“Verfassungsschutz”, German Intelligence Service — translator] is monitoring the former fighters.
Hamburg — as the news magazine “Spiegel” reports, quoting intelligence findings, the members of the group Liwa Kwais al-Karni came to Germany as refugees. The unit initially fought on the side of the Free Syrian Army and then changed over to the Nusra Front, which is close to Al-Qaeda.
According to the report, their members were involved in “several massacres of captive civilians and Syrian soldiers.” Currently, there are investigations underway against 25 former fighters of the unit.
Authorities think that at least 30 more fighters of the group are living in Germany. But many of them have not yet been identified with absolute certainty or tracked down. According to information obtained by “Spiegel”, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution has formed a task group on this issue.
