Flashback: Farage Predicts ISIS Will Pose As Refugees

Readers may remember Nigel Farage warning the European Parliament back in April that ISIS could sneak terrorists into Europe posing as refugees. His speech was roundly condemned at the time.

There is a real and genuine threat. When Isis say they want to flood our continent with half a million Islamic extremists, they mean it. There is nothing in this document that will stop those people from coming. Indeed I fear we face a direct threat to our civilisation if we allow large numbers of people from that war-torn region into Europe.

The Mirror derided it as a “shameful attack on fleeing refugees” while Amnesty disputed the claim that terrorists would attempt to enter Europe in the guise of refugees. Its Deputy Director of Global Issues told the LA Times“You’re trying to flee for your life … but somehow you’re dangerous.” Such pronouncements are few and far between now that it is suspected that one of the bombers entered Europe through Greece posing as a refugee. Even Benedict “F**k the Government” Cumberbatch has piped down.

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
