One of the Paris bombers died via his suicide vest. Among his dismembered limbs and such, was found a Syrian passport showing that he was 25 years old. It hasn’t been determined whether his DNA matches the passport, as fraudulent Syrian passports are easy to come by. How many hundreds of thousands of these young, male Syrian refugees are flooding Europe, and in the process of being accepted here in the U.S.? Muslim countries have refused to take in “a single” Syrian refugee.” Why? The threat of terrorism. See the comments of presidential candidates, Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump below.
The holder of a Syrian passport found near the body of one of the gunmen who died in Friday night’s attacks in Paris passed though Greece in October, a Greek minister told Reuters.
“The holder of the passport passed through the island of Leros on October 3, 2015, where he was identified according to EU rules,” said Nikos Toscas, Greece’s deputy minister in charge of policing.
A Greek police source told Reuters that European countries had been asked to check the passport holder to see if they had been registered. Source
Liberal French President Francois Hollande said publicly last night that his country would “lead” a “pitiless” war against terrorism. This as German Chancellor Angela Merkel calls for Germans to show “tolerance” towards the thousands of Syrian “refugees” challenging their hosts rights to live without the fear of being terrorized by so-called refugees .
It is the radical Islamism that has declared jihad against the west. It will not be appeased by outreach or declarations of tolerance. It will not be deterred by targeted airstrikes with zero tolerance for civilian casualties, when the terrorists have such utter disregard for innocent life. We must make it crystal clear that affiliation with ISIS and related terrorist groups brings with it the undying enmity of America—that it is, in effect, signing your own death warrant.”
Of the eight Paris terrorists, all wore suicide vests. Three are believed to have lived in Belgium.
Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump has recently been sounding the alarm over a potential Islamic State-led “military coup” in the US.
The possible future culprit, according to Trump: Syrian refugees and migrants.
“It could be one of the greatest coups of all time,” Trump said in a Fox News “Hannity” interview that aired Friday evening. “They could be ISIS. It could be a plot. I mean, I don’t want to think in terms of conspiracy, but it could be a plot.” . . .
“This could be like a Trojan horse,” he added. “I mean, this could be a Trojan horse in a sense: 200,000 people coming into the United States, and let’s say a lot of them would be ISIS. And they come in here and we’re totally unprepared for it.“
There are actual statistics about what kind of refugees the United States has accepted from Syria, available at the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center website. I searched between March 1, 2011, and Sept. 30, 2015*, and found the following stats about the 1,849 admitted refugees during that time period:
52.5% are male, 47.5% are female
30% are between the ages of 21 and 40, 42.4% are under 14
95.6% are Muslim, 2.3% are Christian (this compares to an estimated population within Syria of 87% and 10%, respectively)
These numbers track with what we know about Syrian refugees overall. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has estimated that 50.5 percent of all 4 million-plus Syrian refugees are female, 51.1 percent are children (17 and under), and that just 21.8 percent are males between ages 18 and 59.
Nevertheless, fear of the Muslim “military-aged male” has shot through the commentary about the refugee crisis, particularly as it concerns Europe—where at least the assertion has more statistical validity. Here’s a typical recent claim, from Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas):
Seventy percent of these people that are going into Western Europe today are military-aged males 20-30 years old. According to the UN, only 15 percent are [children] and 13 percent are women.
Fox News is reporting this minute, 11:00 am CDT, that Americans have been either killed or injured in the attacks, but no other details have been released.
