If people are not vetted properly this is what happens. A boy, only 12 years old, with ties to Islamic state had plans to blow up a German Christmas market. Luckily the German-Iraqi boy failed his mission. The bomb in his backpack failed to detonate.
His device did not detonate on November 26th but he was determined and tried again on December 5th. This time, a pedestrian spotted the bag in a bush by the town hall. Bomb specialists were fortunate enough to carry out a controlled explosion successfully.
The boy was born in Ludwigshafen and of the Islamic faith. He was described as “strongly radicalized” by officials and is believed to have been following instructions from an unknown ISIS member.
The suspect is charged with a serious act of violent subversion.
There have been warnings that several dozen terror attacks would take place for Christmas as foreign fighters return home countries.
A Dutch counter-terrorism coordinator claims that the Islamic State has between 60 and 80 operatives spread out across Europe ready to attack.
Gilles de Kerchove, the European Union’s counter-terrorism coordinator, said in the report. “We have to be vigilant, since the threat posed by the so-called Islamic State and returning foreign fighters is likely to persist in the coming years, these people are trained to use explosives and firearms and they have been indoctrinated by the jihadist ideology.”
A travel alert has been issued by The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the heightened risk of terrorist attacks throughout Europe, particularly during the holiday season. The report said that holiday festivals, events and outdoor markets are particularly sensitive areas.
With all the problems facing Europe at any time of year, now during the holiday season, why would any American want to go there and be in further danger? It’s bad enough that our present government has let so many un-vetted illegal immigrants into America. Yes, I’ll say it. There are Islamic terrorists everywhere. I’m waiting patiently for Trump to take office.
