Europol Admits ISIS Actively Targeting Refugees To Carry Out Terrorist Attacks In The EU

Tyler Durden's picture

Confirming what most of us deduced long ago via the application of just a bit of common sense, Europol and Frontex, Europe's  border and coast guard agency, are finally admitting that their intelligence indicates coordinated efforts on the part of ISIS to recruit asylum seekers, both in Syria and in migrant camps after they've already reached Europe, to carry out terrorist attacks.  In a report published my Europol, counter-terrorism experts warn that, among other things, "Syrian refugee diaspora may become vulnerable to radicalisation once in Europe and may be specifically targeted by Islamic extremist recruiters."

  • Radicalised persons are not necessarily profound believers
  • Elements of the (Sunni Muslim) Syrian refugee diaspora may become vulnerable to radicalisation once in Europe and may be specifically targeted by Islamic extremist recruiters
  • The majority of attacks claimed by IS appear to be masterminded and perpetrated by individuals inspired by IS, rather than those who work with the organisation directly
  • Intelligence suggests that IS has assembled teams in Syria which are sent to the EU tasked with carrying out attacks
  • Training possibilities for IS are believed to be decreasing in Syria

The report goes on to note that "German authorities were aware of around 300 recorded attempts made by jihadists to recruit refugees" as of April 2016 while Merkel continued to relentlessly push her "open-border" policies.

The majority of attacks carried out in the name of IS appear to have been masterminded and performed by individuals who were inspired by IS, rather than those who worked with the terrorist organisation directly. Intelligence suggests, however, that IS has also put together teams in Syria which are sent to the EU tasked with carrying out attacks. It is believed that this ‘external terrorism network’, began sending fighters abroad two years ago.


Given that it is in the interests of IS to inflame the migration crisis to polarise the EU population and turn sections of it against those seeking asylum, there is a risk of some infiltration of refugee camps and other groups. The extent of this is unknown, however, making the subject susceptible to exaggeration and exploitation especially by populist factions and (extreme) right-wing parties. A real and imminent danger is the possibility of elements of the (Sunni Muslim) Syrian refugee diaspora becoming vulnerable to radicalisation once in Europe and being specifically targeted by Islamic extremist recruiters. It is believed that a number of jihadists are travelling through Europe for this purpose. According to unconfirmed information, German authorities were aware of around 300 recorded attempts made by jihadists to recruit refugees who were trying to enter Europe by April 2016.



Moreover, Europol notes that the power vacuum in Libya has resulted in the country becoming a "springboard" for "EU foreign terrorist fighters who, on returning to Europe, plan further terrorist attacks."

CT experts are concerned that Libya could develop into a second springboard for IS, after Syria, for attacks in the EU and the North African region. Since mid-2015 Libya has become a major destination for IS fighters in its own right and is believed to having become a hub for EU foreign terrorist fighters who, on returning to Europe, plan further terrorist attacks.

Finally, the report warns that recent success in hitting numerous targets across Europe will only encourage further attacks which are likely to become more violent and sophisticated over time.

The success generated by these terrorist attacks, as seen from an IS perspective, will encourage the group to hit more targets in the EU. Although France appears to be the primary focus of IS, the organisation has threatened all countries that are part of the US led coalition against IS in Syria and Iraq, including Germany, the UK and other Member States, which have specifically been mentioned as enemies of IS in several video messages.


New attacks by both terrorist groups and lone actors are thus to be expected, most probably following the patterns that have been used in earlier attacks. New variations in attack, for example in the use of car bombs, may also develop.

And while many people have pretty much assumed most of the "findings" above from the "intelligence community," we guess it's better that the truth is being revealed later rather than never.  Hopefully Merkel gets a chance to peruse the report before she becomes the latest prominent European politician to find herself without a job.

Does someone at Europol get paid a salary for stating the bleeding fucking obvious about two years after it was apparant to anyone with two brain cells?

<edit> €Pol just doesn't sound like a police force, does it?

Probably they are trying not to rub their EC overlords the wrong way as they (EC fuckers) claim there are no terrorist between the asylum demanders (they keep tricking people by calling them refugees but the statistics say otherwise).

Howdy, CuttingEdge,

Europol and the MSM are so transparently servants of those with less than two brain cells. For their sins of omission and collusion, do they reap the whirlwind of madness and mayhem with chaos and CHAOS cheering them on to their just desserts? 

Yes, such certainly be the insane situation in the case of Clouds Hosting Advanced Operating Systems.

Fuck! This cranberry picture might be some kind of funny ass movie, or a cruel joke but the horrible truth is, this fuckin shit show is on a roll, and it ain't going to be good when these alien niggers start their bit parts in the over all chaos during the crash.

The stupid fucking idiotic lame brain idiocy of actually watching this all happen with what is known well what terrorism will come to pass eventually in this country, is off the hook.

Obama is up to something real bad, thousands of male immigrants being let in to the USA:

How do the stupid people or anyone else that is conscious of this evil plan to cause chaos and disharmony in America, allow the trash leaders to pull off this shit?

It is like saying, hey raghead, come on over here and rape and kill my wife and children and then when you are done with that, please kill this stupid this ass too.

And you know what? That sneaking dirty rottEn evil muslim faggot asshole is going to do just that. KILL YOU ALL!

Why? Because the people of America are too stupid and pussified to stop it before it happens.

Anyone could wonder, if Mr Putin knew all this and what an evil plan it is to destroy his country, what do you think he would do?

Who are you caling pussified?

I stand here, on my dirt, saying 'BRING IT'.  And there's more like me, in the millions, than we have in all branches of military combined.

It's time to play Cowboy and Muslim.

I no longer have part and parcel with government propaganda.

Nobody, eye tell ya. Or maybe it could be the case of 'let no good crisis go to waste':


Does religion also play a contributing factor?

Yes. Young people “are often drawn to new ideas and heterodox relations, challenging older forms of authority,” writes Goldstone. But Gavin says “religion can provide an outlet that is constructive and allows youth to build social networks and find a sense of identity.” In the Muslim world, experts say large populations of idle youth are especially prone to virulent strands of Islam as an alternative force for social mobility. Of the twenty-seven largest youth-bulge societies in the world, thirteen are Muslim, according to Heinsohn.

CFR is raycisss.

Impose Ayzij (reverse Jizya) in the west! Say 10% ...  nothing better than heavy taxation to make someone think twice about migrating.


Jizya is a per capita yearly tax historically levied by Islamic states on certain non-Muslim subjects. The jizya tax was historically imposed on Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians in the Arabian peninsula, the Levant, Iraq, North Africa, Caucasus and Spain, and on Hindus on the Indian Subcontinent into the 19th century, but almost vanished during the 20th century. Historically, the Jizya tax has been understood in Islam as a fee for protection provided by the Muslim ruler to non-Muslims.


The jizya is no longer imposed by Muslim states. Nevertheless, there have been reports of non-Muslims in areas controlled by the Pakistani Taliban and ISIS being forced to pay the jizya.

In 2014, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) announced that it intended to extract jizya from Christians in the city of Raqqa, Syria, which it controls. Christians who refused to pay the tax would have to either convert to Islam or die. Wealthy Christians would have to pay the equivalent of USD $664 twice a year. This on top of other, regular taxation.

I have a little game I play. Every person I see wearing a muzzie headscarf, burqa, beard, or headrags, I simply refer to as Isis.
I don't make a big deal of this. I don't shout out. I simply call them Isis because I am giving each and every one of them the name they deserve.

There are plenty of stories of so called volunteers that are recruiting in asylum centers. Other genuine volunteers that come from countries in MENA and that are Christians but mistaken by the migrants as Muslims attested to this. They heard other volunteers recruiting, they heard that the moment the local staff leaves a room many migrants start to show their disdain and hatred for Germany. Christians, LGBT folks, unbelievers, etc are harrassed, even stabbed in these centers. These people are then told to hide their religion or sexual orientation and pretend to be Muslim. In Germany, crimes statistics regarding migrants run in the 10s of thousands. This will only get worse in 2017.

The financial system of Europe is already dead. My opinion –
the zios want to provoke a war in Europe
and the ISIS / Migrants are only tools. And that war will be distracting the peoples from a far bigger problem- the political criminals.

Libya was Hilary's war, behind her were the Clinton Foundation, it's 1100 investors & Soros.  The Muslim Brotherhood is Hilary's private army. This is where Huma fits in, (her mother is the head of the Muslim Sisterhood, who share an office building in London with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Huma's family also have close ties to Saudi Arabia).  HSBC is their bank of choice, all leaders who are crowned after regime change have to open a HSBC account to deposit the wealth from their newly acquired nation.  The frozen assets in Libya were unfrozen as soon as her puppet was put in charge, Gadaffi had over $320 billion, his wife $30 billion & the Libyan people $30 billion. Hilary's State Department arranged to unfreeze Libyan assets so the money could be stolen on the fall of Gadaffi. That is exactly what happened.  

Clinton's relationship with Huma goes back over 20 years, what has been happening in the world over that period?  If you accept that Libya was a common heist, that the 'colour revolutions' are investment opportunities (if you know when and where they are going to happen). How about 9/11 being the work of the Clinton Cabel?  That would account for the Saudi involvement and the missing gold, because at the end of the day, all these regime changes are about common theft.

George Webb has a series of 10 minute videos on YouTube, e.g. 'Day 56 Where is Eric Braverman'.   He joins all the dots and it is extremely frightening when you consider the scale of the Clinton Foundation operations and the people involved.  It would be amazing if one of the Tylers took a look at these and publish a series of articles based on them.  This guy isn't one of the usual yelling crazy nutjobs out there, what he says causes ' arrr, that makes sense now' moments.

FRONTEX = human smugglers protected from prosecution and paid by the parasites in Brussels. Border petrol my ass. Legalized human smugglers is what they are. But as always with marxist-leninist, hypocritical whores they are, borders change constantly depending on their need. Sovereign borders are bad, borders the EU Collective set up, which keep shifting depending on the issue, as the EU says there are no borders until it's convenient for them. Or something. You need to be a commie fucker to have that make sense to you.

Zionist Influence in WEST has created this MESS. They created 9/11, blamed it on Fictional Terror Organization, bombed Afghanistan and Iraq, which then created 20 Real Terror Organizations. The more Islamic Terror Attacks, more likely the WEST is going to get to the core of the Problem Zionist Influence.

Translated from the profit logic:

Trafficking desparate humans to Americanize Europe for easier divide and conquer, and lower wages, and then dilerately mixing among them "terrorists".

Need to prop up the narrative.
