Is ISIS knocking on Europe's door or is it already inside?
In politics, it is important to nurture relations among nations, and therefore politicians and their advisors strive to find ways of keeping these relationships fruitful. However, it would be interesting to know who are the bureaucrats that feel so comfortable in their position that fail to make the proper correlations, and in the process put Europe in peril.
To start with, western politicians should have the courage to admit that there's a clear connection between the [recognition/support for a] State of Palestine ex nihilo, the Al-Qaeda 7-Step Plan, the expansion of the Islamic State, and the increasing threats to European Security and Stability.
"By the grace of God to Libya, God bestowed upon this country a strategic position and immense potential (..)[this country] looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat and note that the number of “illegal immigration” trips from this coast is massive, estimated to be as high as 500 people a day, as a low estimate. (...) If this was even partially exploited and developed strategically, pandemonium could be wrought in the southern Europe. It is even possible that there could be a closure of shipping lines because of the targeting of Crusader ships and tankers." -- in Libya: The Strategic Gateway for the Islamic State (by Charlie Winter)
Italy, as the country that suffers most with the influx of illegal immigration via boats, has been becoming the gate through which Islamic Cells, in Europe, are being reinforced. Groups like Hamas have been using the method; Jihadist Groups have been using the Refugee Scheme to infiltrate militants into Europe too; and now ISIS publicly acknowledged the usefulness of using “rudimentary boat(s)” to work pandemonium in “southern Europe” - this is not only a major national security threat to Italy but also a territorial security threat to the European Union.
“There were small armies of the Islamic State within every country of Europe by late 2014, and the intelligence agencies didn’t even know about it!” -- ISIS
Earlier, we referred to the connection between the recognition of the ex-nihilo state of Palestine and the increase of insecurity in Europe. We must remember that "Palestine" is a centrepiece of Global Jihad, since retaking Israel is part of the Islamic Prophecy concerning the Mahdi (hence the calls for Israel's destruction in Hezbollah's and Hamas' Charter, the calls for the same by the late Bin Laden and Yasser Arafat; and now IS).
Once again, ISIS recently confessed that Pro-Palestinian Activists in Europe are in fact Sleeper ISIS Cells – we all remember how, last Summer, these activists wreaked havoc throughout Europe, a clear prelude to the terrorist attacks in Paris, and elsewhere. But what is even more interesting is that ISIS even admits that non-Muslims are assisting them, through the Pro-Palestine/Anti-Israel Cause:
“If you have ever been at a pro-Palestine / anti-Israel protest, you will see many activists who are not even Muslims who are supportive of what Muslims are calling for (the fall of Zionism)," -- idem
The socialist and communist groups, in European parliaments, are actually helping Global Jihadists fulfilling their Plan (the Italian Parliament was the only one that challenged the trend). Now that motions have been passed, even if symbolically (with the exception of Sweden), Global Jihadists feel emboldened and are preparing the next phase of their plan:
"It is most likely here that connections between Muslims and Left-wing activists will be made, and a portion from them will realize that protests are not effective, and that armed combat is the alternative." -- idem
To answer the initial question: yes, ISIS and others are already within Europe. Their cells are just waiting to be activated.
Unwittingly, Daesh (ad-Dawlat al-Islāmiyah fī al-ʿIrāq wa sh-Shām, aka ISIS), proved Dissecting Society right:
"Missionary Activism: grassroots campaigning at individual level to create societal change. This sort of activism is undertaken by individuals who may not want to engage in violence but do wish to contribute to the cause. In this category fall the social media activists & trolls (who more often than not practise racism, anti-Semitism, incitement to hatred and violence); individual recruiters (using friendship as bait); members of charity institutions and foundations; community leaders in Islamic cultural centres; Imams in Mosques and other community organisers.
Political Activism: working within the system to influence & create change. This sort of activism is carried out by individuals who may have engaged in violent activism in the past, or by missionary activists. In this category fall the leaders of Hybrid Terrorist Organisations; representatives of Political Islam; Pro-Palestinian Protesters; elements of the BDS Movement; and members of NGOs & Lobby Groups with ties to Islamist causes." (in Missionary, Political and Violent Activism: Pieces of the Same Puzzle)
Daesh also predicts that its cells in Europe will takeover “Rome” (i.e. an infidel army) by 2020. This timetable is remarkable inasmuch as Al-Qaeda also set its final victory for 2020; which, once again, proves that what has been said in this Blog is correct:
"At some point we will have to accept the fact that violent jihad is supported by missionary and political Islamist activism. There are no coincidences.
All Islamist groups are following the AQ Plan and they are on schedule - their ambition, of establishing a Global Caliphate, is becoming more and more obvious.” (in The Al-Qaeda 7 Step Plan: The West Complies)
Daesh is confirming us the true nature of its plight: the group complements Al-Qaeda et al. Their apparent disassociation is a strategic deflection to maintain sympathy and support for the cause (that is, to draw those who are/were disenchanted with AQ, and thirsty for more violent endeavours, towards ISIS).
"Bin Laden viewed his terrorism as a prologue to a caliphate he did not expect to see in his lifetime." -- in What ISIS Really Wants? (by Graeme Wood)
The Caliphate seems to be taking form, and with more and more Jihadist Groups pledging allegiance to ISIS/Daesh (e.g. Boko Haram [Nigeria], Islamic Youth Shura Council [Libya], Ansar Bayit Al-Maqdis [Sinai]), it would be advisable to review the present stance on the fight against Global Jihad – military action alone will not work, and it won't work at all as long as the political sphere undermines its efforts. There must be a concerted action and strict coordination (both in action and words). It's also advisable to understand and make politicians grasp the true nature of Jihadist Groups:
"Al-Qaeda acts like an underground political movement, with worldly goals in sight at all times—the expulsion of non-Muslims from the Arabian peninsula, the abolishment of the state of Israel, the end of support for dictatorships in Muslim lands. The Islamic State has its share of worldly concerns (..), but the End of Days is a leitmotif of its propaganda." -- idem
