Europe facing decades-long “bloody fight” with jihadists, warns Nigel Farage

(INFOWARS) — by Dan Lyman

Civil war in Europe now inevitable due to Islamic invasion

British statesman Nigel Farage has conceded that Europeans have crossed a tipping point and are now facing a battle against jihadists that could go on for decades, despite countless forewarnings about border security and immigration trends issued by nationalists like him.

In an interview with Westmonster, Farage was asked how he feels about the unfolding crisis of Islamic terrorism in the UK and Europe, knowing that he has attempted for many years to avert the looming catastrophe while being constantly defamed and slandered by the global elite, EU internationalists, and mainstream media alike.

“No one said sorry, not one – the legions who lined up to say that I was racist, neo-fascist – no one has apologized.” Farage said. “Surely, decent people would admit they were wrong.”

“To be honest, even my most pessimistic view of what was going to happen here has been far exceeded by truth and reality.”

“I think we are in a very bad place. I think we are in for decades of a very difficult and literally bloody fight, and I believe we have brought it all upon ourselves,” he assessed.

The EU’s head of counter-terrorism, Gilles de Kerchove, revealed in a recent interview with El Mundo that there are more than 50,000 known Islamic radicals currently in Europe, 20,000 – 25,000 of whom are in the United Kingdom.

“I would not venture to a specific figure, but tens of thousands, more than 50,000,” Kerchove stated when asked to estimate the number of jihadists in Europe.

According to El Mundo, Kerchove believes that Islamic slaughter in Europe is “a generational question that will accompany us for decades,” and that “we will suffer more attacks… it seems clear that something like Barcelona will happen again,” which serve as confirmations of Farage’s assertions.

2017 has seen a terror attack attempted in Europe every nine days

(BREITBART) — by Raheem Kassam and Victoria Friedman

Europe, the United Kingdom, and Russia have witnessed terror attacks or attempted attacks every nine days in 2017 on average, analysis of security incidents has revealed.

Since January, around 45 people have been killed by mostly Islamic terrorists, while hundreds have been injured. The only known incident not linked to jihadism in 2017 was the attack on the Borussia Dortmund soccer team by a Russian-German national attempting to profit from short-selling stock in the company.

Attacks and attempted attacks have taken place in Austria, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Germany.

Security services in Britain — population 65 million — are known to be tracking 3,500 potential terror suspects or persons posing a threat. Meanwhile Belgium, with its population of just 12 million, is tracking around 18,000 potential jihadists.

A further minimum of 14 terror attacks have occurred in Turkey in 2017, a NATO member country currently being considered for European Union membership.

‘Very ominous warning’ from Turkish strongman just ‘a preview’

(WND) — Turkish citizens living in Europe are heading to the polls this week to vote on a referendum calling for expanded powers for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Members of Turkish expatriate communities in Germany, France, Austria, Denmark and Switzerland are able to cast their ballots between March 27 and April 9 at Turkish consulates.

When Turkish ministers from the ruling Justice and Development Party infamously tried to campaign for the referendum in Germany and the Netherlands, officials in those countries barred them from doing so, citing security concerns.

The moves prompted Erdogan to fly into a rage and declare: “If Europe continues this way, no European in any part of the world can walk safely on the streets. Europe will be damaged by this.”

Germany might have been able to brush aside the threat if it weren’t home to a sizable Turkish population. Roughly 3.7 percent of the country’s 82 million residents are Turks, and 1.4 million of those Turks are eligible to vote in the referendum.

Philip Haney, a former Customs and Border Protection officer who co-authored “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad,” said it’s an ominous sign for Europe that Turkish ministers felt the need to go into European countries to campaign for a Turkish referendum in front of Europe’s large Turkish population.

“It tells me they view Europe as an extension of their territory, of their sovereignty, of their influence,” Haney told WND. “This is a preview of what we can expect in the time ahead: an inordinate amount of malevolent influence exerted by rulers of countries, in this case in the Middle East, interfering with the sovereign authority of countries in Europe directly, no pretense.”

Erdogan’s threats amount to nothing less than a breach of European sovereignty, in Haney’s view. He noted German and Dutch leaders had the right, as leaders of sovereign nations, to deny entry to the Turkish ministers if they believed their presence would threaten public security.

“Erdogan’s saying that non-Muslim countries don’t have sovereign rights,” Haney said. “He’s saying, ‘If you do something we don’t like, there might be war.’”

Unfortunately, because there are so many Turks living in Europe, European leaders have no choice but to take Turkey’s threats seriously, according to Haney.

“Look what happened when these countries said, ‘No, no campaigning for Turkish leaders in our country.’ What happened?” Haney asked rhetorically. “They had riots.

“These people are supposedly the equivalent of lawful permanent residents, green-card holders. They’re supposed to be pledging allegiance to the countries that they’re going to, not making a fifth column for Turkey, and that’s why they didn’t let the Turkish ministers in. And Erdogan is threatening, ‘Look, this is what we can do. We can have riots in your cities. One word from me and they will break out into the streets.’ A very ominous warning.”

Your government is not doing all it can to protect you – hear it straight from a DHS whistleblower. Get “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad” now at the WND Superstore!

Michael Maloof, a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense, agreed Europe must take Erdogan very seriously because of the large Turkish diaspora residing in Europe.

“What happened was that by preventing the Turkish leaders from coming in, it got the Turkish diaspora – those are the expatriates living in Europe – to rise up to defend Erdogan in effect,” Maloof told WND.

House report says 2017 terror forecast ‘alarming’

(TRUTH REVOLT) — By Mark Tapson

A monthly terror forecast from Homeland Security warns that 2017 “looks alarming” for the U.S. and Europe.

According to Fox News, the House Homeland Security Committee’s February “Terror Threat Snapshot” report predicts that efforts to crush foreign terror groups could cause more attacks on American soil. It cites an “unprecedented spike in the homegrown terror threat, primarily driven by the rise of ISIS,” and warns of “lone wolf” attacks as well as homegrown terrorists who return from fighting in such places as Iraq, Syria and Somalia.

“I am very encouraged that the Trump administration is preparing to put greater pressure on jihadists in their safe havens throughout the world,” said House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul. “But as they do, we can expect to see militants returning to the West to build new networks and to plot more deadly operations.”

The report notes that since the beginning of 2016, there have been plots or attacks by 39 homegrown jihadists in 19 states — Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Two attacks occurred just last month, a deadly shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport by ISIS-radicalized Esteban Santiago, and the murder of a Denver Regional Transportation District security officer by a suspect carrying jihadist material in his backpack. And the U.S. and Europe could, as Fox News puts it, “continue to reap the bloody tide of what critics call lax counter-terrorism efforts in the past.”

“Unfortunately, over the past eight years of the Obama administration, the ideological counter-measures were removed and, therefore, the level of radicalization peaked to the levels acknowledged in this report,” says Walid Phares, who advised Trump on foreign policy throughout the campaign. “More jihadis mean more potential attacks — this is what we are facing now.”

45 years of terrorist attacks in Europe, visualized

(THE WASHINGTON POST) — The attacks can happen almost anywhere: In a holiday market outside a historic church in Berlin, on the street during a national holiday in France, in an airplane over Scotland or during the first day of school in a small town in Russia.

Sometimes, a plot fails – a detonator malfunctions or authorities make an arrest – and no one is injured.

Other times, an attack leaves a trail of death and destruction that can shake a nation. Sometimes a continent.

Terrorism across Europe has killed 10,537 people in 18,803 reported attacks – excluding those considered military tactics in war zones – between January 1970 and December 2015, according to the University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database.

The database tracks more than 150,000 foreign and domestic terrorism incidents worldwide.

Attacks in 2014 and 2015 have seen the highest number of fatalities, which includes terrorists targeting civilians, government officials, businesses and the media, across Europe since 2004.

Europe on the brink: Streets ‘will become war zones’ as continent descends into crisis

(UK DAILY STAR) — EUROPEAN leaders are said to be preparing for mass civil unrest as multiple catastrophic problems engulf the continent.

It comes after months of warnings from experts – including top military brasses – that massive economic issues, mass immigration, and terrorism will lead to a full-scale crisis.

They have predicted this will affect the entire continent, eventually leading to civil war on the streets.

In December 2015, one of the most apocalyptic warnings came from André Blattmann, the Swiss head of the armed forces.

Blattmann, who left his job just weeks later, said the combination of hybrid wars, the economy, and the refugee crisis would have “unforeseen dimensions”.

He then claimed social unrest was something Europe’s leaders and armies had to be prepared for.

Blattmann was writing in a newspaper just days after France had been rocked by one of the worst terror attacks in the country’s history.

On November 13, 2015, Islamist gunmen went on a shooting rampage at various locations in the capital of Paris, massacring 130 people.

It sparked a wave of ISIS-linked terror attacks in Europe’s major cities, including Berlin, Munich, and Nice.

One of the most high profile was the Nice lorry horror, where Islamist fanatic Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel drove a huge cargo truck into a crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day in the seaside city, killing 86.

A further 434 people were maimed and injured.

READY TO STRIKE: ISIS has flooded Europe with 1,500 highly-trained terrorists ‘ready to launch attacks’, chilling EU report claims

(THE SUN) — An estimated 5,000 European ISIS fanatics went to Syria and Iraq and 15 to 20 per cent of them died on the battlefield.

Around 30 to 35 per cent have returned with “specific missions,” while the other half remained in the battle theater – which amounted to between 2,000 and 2,500 Europeans.

This means as many as 1,750 may have returned, based on the percentages listed in the report which EU counter-terrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerchove will present to EU interior ministers on Friday.

The report said there were two types of ‘foreign terrorist fighters’ returning.

Around a third of the estimated 5,000 European jihadists have returned to Europe – some may have ‘orders to attack’

Earlier this year, three coordinated suicide bombings occurred in Belgium: two at Brussels Airport in Zaventem, and one at Maalbeek metro station in central Brussels
Last month Belgium expressed concern that jihadists were increasingly returning to Europe

It warned: “It is important to share information on returnees who are already back in Europe, those that are in transit and … (those) still in the conflict zone.”

“There are largely two categories of returnees: those in the majority who will drift back and those who will be sent back on specific missions, which are of most concern.”

Islamic State may use car bombs in Europe, Europol warns

(BREITBART) — Terror organizations including Islamic State are evolving their strategies to attack more soft targets, and may expand their repertoire to the use of car bombs in Europe, Europol has warned.

Islamic State is likely to launch more attacks in Europe as several dozen militants are known to be within the member states, while more may arrive as the jihadist group loses ground in Syria and Iraq, Europol has said in a report.

But whereas previous attacks have utilized firearms or explosives carried on the person, future attacks may adopt methods, such as car bombs, which have previously only been seen in the Middle East.

Islamic State is known to have deployed car bombs in the villages around Mosul over the last few months in a bid to hold the city against approaching Iraqi and Kurdish forces, while further afield the Islamic terror group al-Shabaab were able to slaughter 60 Kenyan peacekeeping troops at an African Union base in Somalia in January after using a car bomb to demolish an exterior wall.

There are indications that European based terrorists are already adopting the method: in September, French police arrested two suspects after a car containing several gas cylinders was found abandoned near the Notre Dame cathedral in central Paris.

Europol director Rob Wainwright said that the scale of the threat proved the need for greater collaboration between states in tackling terrorism.

“The last two years have seen a number of jihadist attacks, several of which have caused mass casualties,” he said. “The scale of this threat has been widely acknowledged in Europe, triggering an intensified cooperation between police and security services across the continent leading to an increase of arrests and plots foiled before terror attacks could be carried out.

“Nevertheless today’s report shows that the threat is still high and includes diverse components which can be only tackled by even better collaboration.”

Austria: One-third of Muslim youth supports violent Jihad against the West, Viennese study reveals

(LEGAL INSURRECTION) — “Anti-Semitic, homophobic and sympathizing with Jihad.” This is how a leading Austrian newspaper summed up the latest study looking into the attitudes of young Muslims living in the city of Vienna. The study commissioned by the city reveals that nearly one-third of the Muslim youth living in the Austrian capital hold radical Islamic views and support armed Jihad against the West.

The leftist coalition running the city attacked the findings of the study that yet again reveal the clutching hold of Islamism over Europe’s migrant Muslim population. The study also exposes the failure of Multiculturalism, a policy pursued for decades by Social Democrats and ecological Green Party, who run the Austrian capital.

The study also highlights Europe’s lingering Anti-Semitism. 33 percent of all young Viennese respondents held negative opinion of Jews — among Muslim respondents that number was 47 percent. Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung reports:

The finding of a study on identity and radicalization amongst Viennese youth commissioned by the city of Vienna are alarming: 27 percent of Muslim participants reject the West and place their religion above Austrian laws. They also view Jews and homosexuals negatively. (…)

The main focus of the study was threat of radicalization amongst teenage Muslims. The extremists are recruiting supporters; be it on the internet, in the gyms or on the streets. (…) 27 percent of respondents sympathize with Jihadism, support violence and are anti-Western. [Author’s translation]

Vienna Socialist (SPÖ) City Councilwoman Sandra Frauenberger downplayed the findings saying, “Young people talk about things that they don’t fully understand.” She also rejected the idea that these young Muslims could pose a threat to Austrian society, saying that it was these ‘vulnerable’ Muslims who needed state protection. “We have to protect them.”

“Multiculturalism is finally dead,” declared the Austrian right-wing Freedom Party (FPÖ) reacting to the study. Maximilian Krauss of the Freedom Party called for the removal of Councilwoman Frauenberger, saying, “Instead of somehow integrating the second generation, we are partially raising a new generation of fanatical Jihadi.”

The study once again shows that other European metropoles too are fast catching up with Paris, Brussels and Stockholm. The rise in Muslim populations owing to higher birth-rates and unrestricted migration goes hand in hand with radicalization of European inner cities.

Analyst: Muslim army ready to attack Europe

(SPEISA) — A Hungarian intelligence analyst warns that “thousands of Muslim soldiers” have arrived in Europe and are plotting an invasion.

Hungarian military and security analyst László Földi, predicts that civil wars in Europe will begin within five years, although he obviously hopes he’s wrong.

Laszlo Foldi claimed that “this is not terrorism in its classic meaning” as they aim to form a “mass base in Europe” by creating political parties to introduce Shariah law to the continent.

The claims were made during the astonishing interview on Hungarian TV, the ex-Director of Operations in the Hungarian Intelligence Agency.

When questioned about the migrant crisis across Europe, Mr Foldi said: “I think the problem is bigger than this: Can they tell, who are the one million people?

“So the situation is completely catastrophic from this point of view. And the reason for this – as we mentioned it many times – is the policy of open borders when innumerable masses arrived.

“About a year or a year and a half ago it was a taboo topic to even mention the possibility that terrorists can be mixed in with the migrants.

“There was a TV show – I will not say the name – where the reporter said it is stupid for migrants to come here on dangerous trips in inflatable boats when terrorists can just fly here comfortable. The problem is not that they could fly here too. But the fact is, thousands of Muslim soldiers arrived here.

“This is not terrorism in its classic meaning we are talking about here, but an attack, an invasion which has two purposes.

“In the first place, get as many as possible well-trained soldiers into Europe and their primary task it to enlist the local Muslim population, those second or third generation Muslims who live in the ‘non-existent’ no-go zones.”

Mr Foldi continued: “More than 50 per cent do not want to integrate into the host culture; they are the members of a potential future army.

“Why did they not go to the rich oil countries right in the neighbourhood?

“Another type of strategy exists – besides sending soldiers and terrorists to Europe – but the conquest of Europe in another, more peaceful way.“

“The oil countries are not letting them in because they know they are not capable of doing any useful jobs, but they also need a new mass base in Europe, once the oil runs out and they move over to Europe, to create political parties for them.

“These people will vote for the Islamic parties, which will be created in Europe; they will achieve membership in parliaments with their critical mass. For this, it’s a perfect occasion as Europe invites in their future potential voters.”
