As tens of thousands of
men, women and children (mostly strapping young Muslim males) flee the war-ravaged region, ISIS terrorists are being infiltrated into the mass exodus heading to Europe. Dr Jamie Shea said Britain and other countries must be “on our guard” to combat the threat. (Stop them from coming in at all. Problem solved)
UK Express (h/t siegen2) ISIS chiefs have seized on mass migration from the region as an “attractive” way to get hardened terrorists into the West under the cover of refugees. He was speaking as Britain was being urged to take thousands of African migrants following the sinking of a refugee ship from Libya with the loss of almost 1,000 lives.
In a speech to the Counter-Terror Expo in London, Dr Shea also gave a chilling insight into the scale and enormous wealth of ISIS. He likened ISIS to a Mafia-style organization with a £4billion fortune which was recently raking in £1.3million-a-day from oil revenues alone.
Referring to the migration chaos, Dr Shea told security industry delegates: “You can see it in the Middle East crisis, in the influx of refugees from Syria, the tragic capsizing of boats and also the sheer volumes of numbers – 5,000 in the last three days already entering Italy.
“There is no sign whatsoever that this flow of people is going to stop. (Not as long as the EU keeps taking them in)
“ISIS is using this to infiltrate further terrorist operatives into Europe.” “This is going to be a very, very big question to deal with for the refugee agencies.
“But we will need to be on our guard. “Migration is certainly one thing ISIS finds attractive.” (Not only ISIS, all the good-for-nothing Muslim invaders looking to rape Western women and become parasites sucking the teat of the EU welfare system)
Refugee camps pose enormous challenges for Western intelligence and security agencies. The second largest “city” in Jordan is a refugee camp and a quarter of the population of Lebanon are refugees, he said. (What about Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar that don’t take any refugees?)
The over-crowded shanty towns are the breeding grounds of a future wave of jihadists, warned Dr Shea, Nato’s Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges.
ISIS coffers have been swelled recently by £335,000 from the sale of looted art treasures and £1.3million from ransom payments. Revenues from seized oil Iraqi fields is down to an estimates £335,000-a-day from £1.3million-a-day, said Dr Shea.
Around 31,000 foreign fighters have joined ISIS in Iraq and Syria.But not all have joined the terrorist ranks for ideological reasons. Many are simply mercenaries and are fighting under ISIS colours because they are well-paid, said Dr Shea.
