Well, we now have our proof that ISIS jihadists are indeed infiltrating genuine Syrian refugee groups and economic migrants, all heading to the EU and elsewhere, like Canada.
Two in 100 to be exact. When you think of the thousands of Middle Easterners already in Europe or heading there, that is a lot of brutal, anti-just about everything individuals — who will burrow in and wait for the right moment to strike.
For example, if Canada actually brings in 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year, or those who say they are Syrian, that is the potential for 200 ISIS killers to be hiding in plain site.
Read this MailOnline column by Nick Fagge, a reporter on the border with Syria. He was able to get forged Syrian passport, ID card and a driver’s licence in Turkey using a dead Syrian’s particulars. He easily became Jak Abdullah Fraam.
While Fagge’s column is enlightening, I disagree with the way he refers to ISIS jihadis as “fighters.” They are not politically correct “fighters,” they are fanatical Islamists bent on killing for their religion — including the killing of Muslims they don’t agree with.
Scary! Meaning, in depth screening is absolutely necessary before any Middle East refugees and economic migrants are allowed to settle in Canada.
In other words, Prime Minister Harper and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander are/were right. We live in an open and compassionate country, that is true. But, our compassion has to be tempered by a cautious approach, since the last thing we need is for Canadians to be killed in the future because the issue became clouded during a federal election campaign.
