Insanity: 57 Paris Airport Workers Are On Terror Watch List
Thank goodness Islam has absolutely nothing to do with Islamic terror. What could possibly go wrong? …
“The Europeans need to know that when we come, it will not be in a nice way… Those who do not convert to Islam or pay the Islamic tax will be killed… 150 million, 200 million or 500 million, it does not matter to us, we will kill them all.” – ISIS Spokesman
By Leah Barkoukis, Townhall – “The Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris has forced France to examine its security policies, including at the Charles de Gaulle Airport, where it was recently discovered that 57 employees who had access to airplanes and runways were on a terror watch list.
Now, the security passes of 86,000 workers at the Paris airport will be reviewed, according to a report by the Sunday Times of London.
Police carried out extensive searches of the airport under state-of-emergency powers after the Nov. 13 Paris attacks in which 130 people were killed and 350 injured by Islamic State militants.
Belgium, where several of the Paris attackers had lived, also has pulled security badges from several airport workers after discovering that some had links to jihadis who had traveled to Syria.
Meanwhile, anxiety has been brewing about radicalism among bus, Metro and railroad workers.
Samy Amimour, who blew himself up in the Bataclan concert hall in Paris, managed to get a job as a bus driver while on a watch list.
The recent finding of Arabic graffiti on four planes at two French airports, including one that had ‘Allahu Akbar’ written on a fuel tank hatch, has only increased security concerns. While the graffiti in and of itself is not harmful, it raises serious questions about who has access to restricted airport locations.” Source – Townhall.
Flashback: EU Anti-Terror Chief: Europe Can Expect More Islamist Attacks, French Expert: Threat Is Greater Than 9/11 – “Has Europe under-estimated the security threat posed by battle-hardened homegrown Islamic militants returning from Syria? … concern mounted Monday that the region is ill-equipped to cope with the threat posed by homegrown Islamic militants returning from Syria’s battlefields… Europe can expect further ‘small-scale attacks’ like the fatal shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, the EU’s anti-terror chief Gilles de Kerchove said Monday. ‘I don’t expect another 9/11,’ he said in a video statement. ‘I don’t expect a major sophisticated attack.’ ‘I [do] expect more small-scale attacks like the one in Brussels,’ he added. Not everyone agrees. French Al-Qaeda expert Jean-Pierre Filiu believes the threat posed by groups like ISIS, for Europe, is greater than that created by the Taliban’s sheltering of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan prior to the 2001 attacks on New York.” Read more.
