It Begins: Europe Flooded With Reports Of 'ISIS Terrorists' Posing As Refugees

It Begins: Europe Flooded With Reports Of "ISIS Terrorists" Posing As Refugees | Zero Hedge

Earlier this week, one of our contributors Erico Tavares pointed out something disturbing, namely that in Europe's perpetual search for "crises" on which to capitalize in its relentless encroachment to a European superstate, the current migrant crisis may be a blessing in disguise (assuming, of course, it wasn't premeditated from day one as others have suggested).

Which means that as part of the refugee crisis in which tens of thousands of innocent Syrians have been displaced and seeking European asylum, it was only a matter of time before one or more was "found" to be ISIS terrorists in order to perpetuate the fear and crisis narrative. A crisis which Brussels would never go to waste.

That time has arrived following a report by German RTL and carried by NewObserver that "an ISIS terrorist posing as an "asylum seeker" has been arrested by German police in a “refugee” center in Stuttgart, and German customs officers have seized boxes containing Syrian passports being smuggled into Europe."
So it begins.

According to RTL, the terrorist is a 21-year-old Moroccan using a “false identity” who had registered as an asylum seeker in the district of Ludwigsburg. He was identified after police linked him to a European arrest warrant issued by the Spanish authorities. He is accused of recruiting fighters for ISIS, where he acted as a contact person for fighters who wanted to travel to Syria or Iraq.
This arrest of the alleged bogus “asylum seeker” comes at the same time that a German finance ministry spokesman said that "boxes" of fake Syrian passports, destined for sale and distribution to the hordes of nonwhite invaders seeking to settle in Europe as bogus “war refugees,” had been seized."

That news, carried in a report by the German Tagespiegel newspaper, also revealed that 10,000 fake Syrian passports were seized by police in Bulgaria, on their way to Germany.

The finance ministry official said both genuine and forged passports were in the packets intercepted in the post. Possession of these passports is a vital part of claiming “asylum” as “war refugees.”

The Tagespiegel also revealed that the fake Syrian passports are being sold for about $1,500 each—and the fact that many of the “refugees” can afford to buy multiple passports is yet another indication of the bogus nature of their claims to be “asylum seekers.” 

Significantly, the Tagespiegel article continued, “It is not only Syrians who are interested in Syrian passports. Refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan want to become Syrian in order to secure their recognition as asylum seekers in Western Europe. According to press reports, nine out of ten refugees who came from Macedonia to Serbia claimed they were Syrians.”

“Islamist terrorists, disguised as refugees, have showed up in Europe. [The] pictures were uploaded on various social networks to show that terrorists are now present in most European cities. Many, who are now illegal immigrants, fought alongside Islamic State before,” the report said.

But now the second key role of ISIS is also starting to emerge: the terrorist bogeyman that ravages Europe and scares the living daylight out of people who beg the government to implement an even more strict government apparatus in order to protect them from refugees ISIS terrorists.

But ignore the facts, and focus on the propaganda, which as RT further adds is in full crisis mode: A recent article in the UK Express Daily claimed that IS “smuggled thousands of covert jihadists into Europe.” It cited a January BuzzFeed interview with an IS operative who said the militants have already sent some 4,000 fighters into Europe under guise of refugees.

These speculations have not been confirmed by Western security officials, although that's only temporary: as the need to ratchet up the fear factor grows, expect more such reports of asylum seekers who have penetrated deep inside Europe, and whose intentions are to terrorize the public. Expect a few explosions throw in for good effect.

Certainly expect a version of Europe'a Patriot Act to emerge over the next year, when the old continent has its own "September 11" moment, one which will provide the unelected Brussels bureaucrats with even more authoritarian power. 
And since everyone knows by now "not to let a crisis go to waste" the one thing Europe needs is a visceral, tangible crisis, ideally with chilling explosions and innocent casualties. We expect one will be provided on short notice.

The spike in the flow of refugees arriving in Europe has increased concerns that jihadist fighters could be sneaking in under the guise of asylum seekers, prompting media speculation.
Hungary’s most watched national TV channel, M1, reported Tuesday that at least two “terrorists” were uncovered via photographs on social media after entering Europe as refugees.
“Islamist terrorists, disguised as refugees, have showed up in Europe. [The] pictures were uploaded on various social networks to show that terrorists are now present in most European cities. Many, who are now illegal immigrants, fought alongside Islamic State before,” the report said.
The Hungarian channel broadcasted collections of photographs of the two men from social media. The first set depicted two individuals with weapons and the second set showed them smiling as they arrived in Europe.
Other media reports have speculated that IS militants are using the refugee crisis to infiltrate the EU. A recent article in the UK Express daily claimed that IS “smuggled thousands of covert jihadists into Europe.” It cited a January BuzzFeed interview with an IS operative who said the militants have already sent some 4,000 fighters into Europe under guise of refugees. However, these speculations have not been confirmed by Western security officials.
Some politicians have said that Islamic State might be winning if people are abandoning their homes in Iraq or Syria. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said: “It’s very difficult, but if all these refugees come to Europe or elsewhere, then Islamic State has won.”

A Middle East expert has expressed similar concerns. “This is a major challenge for Europe, but it’s also giving [Islamic State] the possibility to claim victory, because it has claimed its goal is to get rid of every ethnic religious and cultural diversity from the Middle East. ISIS has stated very clearly that all the region should be under Sunni leadership. And therefore those who won’t convert should leave and they have been pushing a lot of people to leave,” Mansouria Mokhefi, of the French Institute for International Relations, told RT.

Hungary is among several European countries that have been struggling to deal with the influx of migrants and refugees breaching its borders, fleeing violence in the Middle East and North Africa. Hungarian police have been challenged with hundreds of asylum seekers stuck near the Serbian border. Hundreds have fled into nearby cornfields, aiming to reach Budapest on foot.

Video of the riot has emerged on the same day Germany announced it will place 4,000 soldiers on standby over the weekend to help with a new wave of up to 40,000 refugees arriving in the country.
Police said The Thursday event was billed as a “solidarity march commemorating fallen Turkish soldiers”. According to  FR Online to it was organised by the “Federation of Turkish young people” which campaigns on behalf of Turkey. The fracas involved a group of around 380 participant and started at the city’s main railway station at 18.30.
Soon after the Turkish supporters set off there were attacks by immigrant Kurd counter-demonstrators who used sticks, bottles and stones to attack marchers. One taxi driver reportedly had his car damaged in the brawl.
Meanwhile, Germany will mobilise 4,000 soldiers in the next 48-hours to help with the entry of up to 40,000 refugees in the country, Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen said on Friday.

Muslim fundamentalists waste no time radicalising their latest Islamist recruits, approaching new arrivals as soon as they arrive in Europe, according to German security services.

A spokesman for the Bavarian security service said Islamists were taking advantage of immigrants who were disorientated or without friends in their new country, He said of the situation: “Salafists are trying to talk with unaccompanied youths who have come to Germany without their families and who are in particular need of support and connections.
“The Salafists are trying to use the desperate situation refugees find themselves in for their own goals”.
Radical Salafist Muslims are going into camps, refugee reception centres, and even Munich Main Train Station, the railway terminus where thousands arrive from Hungary via Austria into Germany for the first time, with a mission to recruit.
Intelligence services in Germany’s most populous state, North Rhine-Westphalia, reported similar contacts on Tuesday. In that case they noted radical Muslims approached migrants using fake charities. A spokesman said:

The group rejects all man-made laws and the authority of national governments, recognising only the will of Allah. Salafi Islam is believed to be the fastest growing group of radical Muslims.

The spread of Salafist and Wahabist Islam in Germany has been a major cause for concern and was one of the key grievances articulated by the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) movement.

Germany is struggling daily to keep tabs on the large numbers of Islamist extremists at large in the country – either known individuals or as of yet to-be-activated Islamists hiding in society. Breitbart London reported last month on the chilling call to arms made in German, and broadcast on the internet by the Islamic State. Calling on true beleivers to rise up and attack Germany and Austria, convicted terrorist Mohamed Mahmoud said from Syria, where he escaped after release from prison:

“My brothers and sisters, either you come here and join the Mujahideen, or you lead the jihad in Germany and Austria. You do not need much, just take a large knife and kill every unbeliever. They are like dogs!”.
