Isil terrorists could infiltrate Europe by hiding among refugees, warns Pope Francis

Pope Francis has warned that Isil terrorists could try to “infiltrate” Europe, hiding among the tens of thousands of refugees and migrants streaming to the continent from war-torn countries such as Syria and Libya.

He said Italy in particular found itself in a vulnerable position, with Isil having established a presence just a few hundred miles south on the desert coastline of Libya.

“It’s true, nowadays, territorial security conditions are not the same as they were in other periods (of mass migration),” the Jesuit Pope told a Portuguese radio station in a wide-ranging interview, days before he embarks on a gruelling tour of Cuba and the United States.

      It sounds more like a prayer than a warning.

    Just a week ago he told catholic churches to take in refugees of whatever stripe.

    Get a grip, bub.

    Charity does not mean inviting Satan into your house.

    • It’s insane.

      These refugees aren’t refugees. There won’t be any churches left standing if they’re let in.

    Aw gee, just when the Left was really starting to like this guy, he has to go and say something like that. Expect attack articles in all the major Leftist publications ASAP.
