ISIS Using Child Recruits to Pose as Refugees Entering Europe, UK-Think Tank

Right after the Paris attacks of November 2015 that killed 128 people, President Obama scoffed at Republicans for being “scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America.”

But just because those “clinging to their guns and religion” — to use another of Obama’s expression– might be skeptical of mass-migration from Muslim dominated countries, doesn’t mean Islamic terrorism isn’t out to get them. According to a recent report published by a UK-based counter-extremism think tank, Islamist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram are using child recruits to infiltrate the refugee wave currently overwhelming Europe. ISIS was paying smugglers to bring child recruits across to Europe and offering up to $2,000 for each child recruited inside the refugees camps in Lebanon and Jordan, says the report issued by Quilliam International.
