One of the terrorists involved in the attacks in Paris on Friday evening was reportedly rescued by Greek authorities from a refugee boat.
The UK Mirror, citing Serbian and Greek media sources, says that 25-year-old Ahmed Almuhamed and another family member were rescued October 3. They were processed as refugees, but there had been no way to verify whether their identity documents were real. They were transferred to another vessel and continued their journey.
CNN reported Sunday morning on Fareed Zakaria: GPS that at least one, and as many as three, of the terrorists in the attacks reached Europe among the flood of Syrian “refugees.” CNN’s Clarissa Ward reported:
…it now appears that as many as three attackers possibly posed as refugees, gaining access into Europe on the refugee route going from Syria into Turkey, then on to the Greek island of Leros, and then from there on through countries–Serbia, Croatia and into Central Europe. It’s believed that at least one was traveling on what was most probably a fake Syrian passport but there’s also talk about two fake turkish passports–ISIS here really exploiting this refugee crisis.
ISIS has kept their promise of disguising fighters as refugees…no one should be surprised by this news.
Update: Breitbart News has reported that at least two terrorists are now confirmed to have entered Europe as “refugees.”
Many of the “refugees” are economic migrants leaving their families behind in refugee camps in Turkey and elsewhere, and many are from countries other than Syria. The attacks killed at least 129 people, including at least one American, and wounded hundreds more in several simultaneous attacks in the French capital.
This information comes as Obama reaffirms his commitment to accept as many as 100,000 refugees into the U.S. The terrorists don’t respect or appreciate kindness or kowtowing to their needs and wishes. They see that as weakness and are ready to exploit it.
