EU Migrant Situation Creating Multiple Flashpoints Across Continent - Terror Insurgency - The U.S. Follows Same Pattern

The passivity that European governments showed last year as hundreds of thousands of migrants flooded the continent appears to be bearing dire consequences as a long catalogue of incidents occurred over the past week.

Most notably, an American was stabbed to death on the streets of London and several more injured by a Somali man with a Norwegian passport who had been living in the UK since 2002.

And in Belgium, an Algerian man, whom the Islamic State credited as one of its "soldiers," attacked and wounded two female police officers with a machete earlier today in Charleroi, screaming "Allahu Akbar." And an entire neighborhood has been evacuated today in Liege after a Turkish man was spotted roaming the streets with a machete.
Since January 2015, there have been 17 terrorist attacks across Europe, killing 258 people and injuring hundreds more. Less than a month ago in Nice, France, on July 14, a Tunisian man, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, ran over and killed 85 and injured 208 more during a Bastille Day celebration.

In April, the House Homeland Security Committee released its European Terror Threat Snapshot showing that there have been 35 attempted terror attacks by ISIS in Europe since 2014, with 22 of them in 2015 -- an average of 2 per month.

Increasingly, economic migrants and asylum seekers from North Africa and the Middle East are figuring prominently in the news related to Europe's domestic terror insurgency.
This sampling of media reports from just the past week in Europe gives evidence to the scope of the problem:

Germany: How Ansbach suicide bomber made his way from Syria

And the migration flow hasn't stopped:

These add to the tens of millions of immigrants already living in the EU:

And just this past week the Obama administration announced it was extending and renewing asylum for Syrian refugees through 2018:

But don't think for a minute that administration officials are unleashing the refugee flood into their own neighborhoods:

But as the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton campaign hector America over calls to stop immigration from Muslim countries until a way to properly vet these refugees can be developed, I noted here at PJ Media this past week that the Obama administration is ALREADY discriminating against Syrian refugees on the basis of religion, namely non-Muslims:

According to the Refugee Processing Center, of the 6,877 Syrian refugees that have arrived in 2016 through July 31st, 6,834 of those are identified as Sunni, Shia, or generic Muslim. Only 43 (0.7 percent of total) refugees admitted have been non-Muslim.
That 0.7 percent of refugees arriving this year represents a statistically insignificant fraction of the more than 2.6 million Catholic, Syriac, Assyrian, and Greek Orthodox Christians, as well as Yazidis, other religions, and atheists living in Syria.

When it was first announced the administration intended to resettle 10,000 refugees, this was alarming. People began to ask, how is it possible that these people could be properly vetted? How would it be possible to ensure that we were not allowing in terrorists?
Now, we have hit the 8,500 mark, and we are not even close to slowing down. This is because, we were not going to take up to 10,000, but at least 10,000.
The Washington Times reports:

Administration officials said Friday that the 10,000 Syrian refugees President Obama wants to welcome this fiscal year is a floor, not a ceiling, and they can go even higher than that total.

“We can now say that we’ve welcomed 8,000 Syrian refugees so far this year and we are very confident we will welcome at least 10,000,” Assistant Secretary of State Anne C. Richard told reporters in updating the flow.
At today’s pace, more than 12,000 refugees could be admitted by the end of September, which marks the end of the fiscal year.

The administration has pushed this program on the cities and states that they chose to transplant these families. It now seems that they will be pushing even more than expected on these communities.
And now, even after FBI Director James Comey has pointed out critical shortcomings in our ability to vet the refugees. We are limited to the information we have on foreign nationals. Meaning, that if they have not already been caught or suspected of terror connections, we will not know they are until it is too late.
So, instead of slowing the process down in the face of Europe being on fire, we are speeding up? It seems that there is no hope for this administration.
