If you were on the fences about whether or not accepting Syrian refugees en masse into America was a bad idea, this should convince you to hop on over.
According to German officials, radical Islamic terrorists are recruiting refugees.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that German homegrown radical Islamists are trying to recruit arriving refugees by offering them items and services they desperately need as they escape the war-torn region: food, shelter, language interpretation, copies of the Koran and traditional Muslim clothing.
“They start by saying, ‘We will help you live your faith,’” Torsten Voss of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency told the Journal, according to Fox News. “The Islamist area comes later — that is, of course, their goal.”
In response to this risk, German authorities in Berlin have issued a 16-page warning to aid workers, calling attention to three mosques in particular with suspected radical Islamist ties. But at this point, there’s little authorities can do aside from asking radicalization experts which mosques to recommend for flagging.
“I’m afraid that anti-Americanism, anti-Israel sentiment and anti-Semitism will be on the rise,” Der Tagesspiegel, editor in chief Malte Lehming told Fox News in October. “We have very limited educational tools to change that. Syria is one of the most anti-Israel countries, influenced by Iran and helped by Hezbollah.”
This is exactly why so many folks on both sides of the aisle are opposed to bringing these refugees into the United States.
Not only is there a high probability some of them are ISIS members, those who aren’t might get radicalized by the sleeper cells that already exist here, like the ones in Minnesota for example.
A nation isn’t a nation if it doesn’t have borders and a legal immigration system, and that’s what we’re supposed to have. No one should be allowed through the back door, especially when there is a huge chance doing so could compromise national security.
Unfortunately, our president doesn’t seem to get this concept.
