ISIS militants stole ‘tens of thousands’ of blank passports: report

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) may have stolen “tens of thousands” of blank passports that it could use to smuggle its fighters into Europe as refugees, a German newspaper reported Sunday.

The Welt am Sonntag cited Western intelligence sources as saying that ISIS could have acquired the stolen travel documents in areas of Syria, Iraq and Libya it now controls.

The passports could be issued to would-be attackers to enter the European Union as asylum seekers, according to the report.

Moreover ISIS has already launched a money-spinning operation with the fake documents, selling them on the black market where they fetch up to 1,500 euros ($1,630) each, Welt said.

    Now 404 (unless it’s my ad-blockers at work).

    And they caught the two “Syrians” in Switzerland a couple of weeks ago with a passport-making machine.

    It’s lucky Justin is vetting them so well or we could be in real trouble.

    Back in November France’s Marine Le Pen addressed the European Parliament on Islam and terror.

    “The passports held by the terrorists are not fake passports. They are REAL passports issued by the ‛Islamic State’ in the administrative bureaus they have taken over in Syria. That too is a reality which has to be faced.” – Marine Le Pen

    Liberals have a threshold for Tolerance on how many Canadian’s can be slaughtered on the Subways or at Company parties before they react and question those we are bring in.

    Knowing Justin and McCallum, I have 500 dead in the Pool because Justin will embrace Diversity and Tolerance even is it kills us.
