Two in every 100 Syrian refugees entering Europe are ISIS supporters, according to Lebanese Education Minister Elias Bousaab.
This statement is especially alarming in light of the national security concerns regarding the migrants that have surfaced in the United States, as President Obama considers allowing refugees onto American soil.
And since the Obama Regime is pushing to allow as many as 200,000 alleged Syrian refugees into the United States, that could mean as many as 4,000 or more ISIS members slipping through our vetting process.
Bousaab went on to say that ISIS is sending trained jihadists on covert missions to plan attacks in the West, this according to the Daily Mail. The Lebanese Education Minister also stated that ISIS leaders have recruited individuals, including children, from schools and refugee camps before helping smuggle them into Europe through Greece and Turkey.
According to Minister Bousaab, the targeting of Syrian migrants by the Islamic State poses a threat that is “growing and mushrooming.”
“My gut feeling is, yes, they [ISIS] are facilitating such an operation,” Bousaab maintains. “Yes, of course, to go to Europe and other places. You may have, let’s say, two percent [of refugees] that could be radicals. It’s becoming a danger because they are recruiting kids from schools, they are recruiting everywhere. It’s a very dangerous situation and the world should wake up and do something about that. ISIS will not stop at the border with Lebanon. Before you know it Isis will be in Europe.”
In the United States these concerns are largely dismissed as unwarranted fears or – by too many on the Left – as thinly veiled Islamophobia.
Nonetheless, in speaking to proposals for allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S., House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said recently that he can’t support allowing Syrian refugees into the United States. “I can’t support a policy that would allow a jihadist pipeline into the United States,” he told Fox News. “We’ve read their documents themselves when they talk about exploiting the refugee issue to get into the United States.”
And he’s not alone. Both Virginia Representative Bob Goodlatte and Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley have said in a joint statement that ISIS and other terrorist organizations have already “made it abundantly clear” that they will use the refugee crisis to try to enter the U.S.
A number of politicians, both here and in Europe, have long warned that ISIS militants are entering Europe by mixing with boatloads of asylum seekers streaming across the Mediterranean from North Africa and Turkey.
This tactic is not new.
In 2011, two Kentucky residents who had been resettled as Iraqi refugees were accused of being al-Qaeda members. They were convicted of terrorism charges after their fingerprints were linked to roadside bombs in Iraq. That led to new steps to screen refugees, a process that has been criticized as slow and bureaucratic.
“Some of the 65,000 that came from Iraq actually were trying to buy stinger missiles in my hometown in Kentucky,” said U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Republican presidential candidate, in a broadcast interview. “So we do have to be wary of some of the threat that comes from mass migration.”
