German chancellor Angela Merkel’s mini-pep-talk slogan, relating to the Muslim wave migration into her country, has long been, “We can do it!” And the Islamic State certainly agrees — and has done it — with a leading German spy chief confirming that the terrorist group-cum-caliphate has succeeded in sneaking hit squads and sleeper cells into the European nation.
All, by the way, courtesy of Merkel’s migration policies.
From the get-go, The New American and other realist sources have warned that the Muslim migrants entering the West in the last years cannot be vetted and that, consequently, terrorists are certainly among them. And if jihadist attacks such as those in Paris and Brussels weren’t enough to vindicate this assessment, now we have a damning admission from the deputy head of Bavaria’s spy agency, Manfred Hauser. Writes the Sun, “ISIS hit squads and ‘sleeper cells’ intent on waging war on Europe have entered Germany disguised as refugees, a leading spy chief [Hauser] has confirmed. Intelligence agencies also have ‘irrefutable’ evidence they are following a command structure, meaning a coordinated attack like those seen in Paris and Brussels is ‘likely’.”
Making his comments on this week’s edition of BBC’s show Today, Hauser said, “We have substantial reports that among the refugees there are hit squads. There are hundreds of these reports, some from refugees themselves. We are still following up on these, and we haven’t investigated all of them fully. We have to accept that we have hit squads and sleeper cells in Germany.”
Tragically, being “Merkeled” isn’t just a German phenomenon; it’s a reality wherever the Muslim migrants have landed. Consider, for instance, that an Islamic State (IS) jihadist just revealed that he has “brothers” operating in Mexico who can easily infiltrate the U.S. Writes the Gateway Pundit:
Earlier this year a top ranking Homeland Security official acknowledged that Mexican drug cartels were helping ISIS sneak across the southern border to scope out targets for terrorist attacks.
ISIS operative Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir has reportedly been training militants near the US border near Ciudad Juarez for the past year.
Khabir actually brags in an Italian newspaper article published last week that the border region is so open that he “could get in with a handful of men, and kill thousands of people in Texas or in Arizona in the space of a few hours.”
Of course, he may not have to because there no doubt are terrorists among the large numbers of Muslims the Obama administration has, against popular will, invited into our country. Note here that more Muslims have come to the United States since 9/11 than during all of our history prior to that fateful day.
And how can we know jihadists lurk among them? The same way we correctly predicted what has transpired in Europe: Despite assurances to the contrary by statist governments wedded to multiculturalism, there simply is no way to properly vet these migrants. The “FBI and other members of our intelligence community” have said this, reported American Thinker last year. The Greek government has said this, that it’s “virtually impossible to pick out dangerous extremists among arriving migrants,” the AFP reported last year. And a NYC Syrian community leader, the New York Post told us last year, said the following about the notion that the migrants could be vetted: “Are you out of your mind?” And since a Syrian ambassador revealed that perhaps 20 percent of the migrants have IS links, and since we’re still welcoming them, perhaps the answer is yes.
And why can’t these migrants be vetted? Countries such as war-torn Syria simply don’t have comprehensive Western-style databases providing accurate information on citizens. Yet it wouldn’t matter if they did because in places such as Syria, you can pay a bribe and get official government documents saying you’re whoever you want to be.
The “refugee crisis” has been a scam from the start. And this isn’t just the opinion of Robert Spencer or Pamela Geller. It’s also shared by Dr. Mudar Zahran, a leader of the Jordanian Opposition Coalition currently living in the United Kingdom, where he sought political asylum. Zahran, a practicing Muslim himself, had a startling message on a 2015 segment of The Glazov Gang: "Keep the Muslim migrants out of Europe." (video below)
Calling the migrant wave “the soft Islamic conquest of the West,” Zahran told show host Jamie Glazov that while most Muslim migrants claim to be Syrian so they can get refugee status, what we’re witnessing is an “influx of all kinds of refugees from the Middle East.” He continued, as I reported last October:
Seventy-five percent of those arriving from Syria come from safe area[s]; actually, the ones in disaster areas cannot … leave. So, actually, as much as there’s a disaster in Syria, most of those people arriving do in fact do not need the protection; they arrive from Turkey, they arrive from Jordan, they arrive from other places which are safe. In addition, those people are … bypassing poor European countries; they’re going to Turkey, Hungary, and other places like Bulgaria and settling in Germany, where there is a rich nation with a generous welfare system.
This gets at the point: We’re witnessing not a refugee crisis but a Western government leadership crisis. Even if these migrants were “refugees” — which most apparently are not — the proper course would be to grant them safe haven as close to their native lands as possible. Why are rich Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Dubai not absorbing their supposedly desperate co-religionists? Why are these migrants instead being brought straight to what once was Christendom’s heart?
In addition, the idea behind refugee status is that once the danger in the refugees’ native lands has passed, they are repatriated. So why in the current case is it taken for granted that at issue is permanent resettlement?
Zahran has his own answers to the above questions. As I also wrote, “What Muslims ‘couldn’t do in the last 20 years,’ says Zahran, ‘now the West is doing for us for free — and even paying for it.’ Moreover, Zahran had this shocking news about the ‘invasion’: ‘I have to be honest,’ he said, ‘you read Arab magazines and Arab newspapers; they are talking about, ‘Good job! Now we’re going to conquest [sic] Europe.’ So it’s not even a secret.’”
Common sense informs that if a nation admits one million Muslims and only one-tenth of one percent constitutes terrorists, that’s 1,000 violent jihadists. But Zahran says it isn’t hypothetical because, he states, “I can authoritively [sic] confirm — I have photos, I have images, I have pictures, I have names of terrorists who actually are already in Europe posting their photos in Europe on Facebook.”
And the reality is that much of this terrorist front is out in the open. Consider how the Sun also reports that approximately 820 people had “left Germany to fight alongside jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq, according to estimates by German secret services” — and one-third of them having since returned. And how has the West responded to this jihadist fifth column? Well, there was a proposal to take away these jihadist fighters’ German citizenship.
And it was thought “controversial.” Huh?
One wonders, if French philosopher Joseph de Maistre were alive today, would he say that “every country has the terrorism it deserves”?
