Surprise, surprise; police have revealed that the suspect in Saturday’s terrorist attack is in fact a failed asylum seeker…
On Saturday afternoon, another tragic example of Merkel’s failed open borders policy was on full display, as a Moroccan asylum seeker went on a knife rampage in the Finnish city of Turku. 2 Finnish women are dead, whilst amongst the injured are 2 Swedes, an Italian and a British citizen.
Finnish police have revealed that the suspect, who hitherto remains nameless, is a Moroccan national who had claimed asylum in Finland. There is also a strong suspicion that the perpetrator’s asylum claim had been rejected, and that the Finnish authorities had failed to remove him.
4 other Moroccan nationals have been arrested in the area, which suggests that this far from the “lone wolf” attack that the media would have us believe.
The attack was initially being investigated as a standard murder by police, but they confirmed information they received led them to upscale the investigation. They now believe that this was a terrorist attack in which women were deliberately targeted.
“The act had been investigated as murder, but during the night we received additional information which indicates that the criminal offences are now terrorist killings.”
This latest tragic display of multicultural misery came just 24 hours after a deadly terrorist attack in Barcelona, that left 13 dead and up to 100 injured when a truck was deliberately driven through the crowded Las Ramblas thoroughfare.
This incident had similarities to the events in Finland, as the terrorist cell believed to be behind the Barcelona attack was comprised of Moroccan immigrants. Police shot dead 5 terrorists at the scene, including Moussa Oukabir, the man named as the key suspect as investigations began.
Four other terrorists have been taken into custody by police in Catalonia, but there is an international manhunt underway for Younes Abouyaaqoub, 22, who is believed to have rented the van which drove into the crowded tourist area.
Two further suspects are being hunted by police, and the French security forces are now investigating the possibility that those who remain at large have crossed the Pyrenees border. Of course, this is a damning indictment of the European Union’s commitment to a “border-free” Europe within the Schengen Zone.
This indictment is particularly acute, given that the security forces believe the remaining suspects are planning further attacks in busy tourist areas.
