Europe’s embrace of Syrian refugees will come under greater scrutiny now that it has been revealed one of the attackers in Friday’s terrorist siege in Paris was carrying a Syrian refugee’s passport.
The 25-year-old in possession of the passport got into France by way of Greece in October, the deputy minister in charge of policing, Nikos Toscas, told Reuters.
“The holder of the passport passed through the island of Leros on 3 October 2015, where he was identified according to EU rules,” he said.
A Greek law enforcement source said the terrorist went through Leros with 69 other refugees.
According to London’s Daily Mail one of the other attackers carried an Egyptian passport and yet another was “as young as 15-years-old.”
Social media was not at all surprised that one of the terrorists was a refugee and as NRA News’ Cameron Gray put it, it’s “game over Obama, and all who want them here.”

@MBSCBill exactly, Bill! And, Obama wants to bring 10,000 here. I believe, they are already arriving in Louisiana.

@ABC there’s a reason 75% of the refugees are military aged males. Europe is welcoming in the very people responsible for the attacks.
