Talk about a security breach. German military intelligence officials discovered 20 Islamic jihadis serving in the country’s Army ranks – and more members were being investigated for possible similar terrorist leanings.
“The German government is planning security checks on all Bundeswehr applicants from July 2017 after 20 Islamists were uncovered in the army, a report says. It said more suspects in the ranks were being investigated.
“German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen will soon propose legislation to carry out security checks on every aspiring Bundeswehr recruit, after the military counterespionage service (MAD) identified 20 Islamists in army ranks, a media report said on Saturday
“The draft law, to be considered by German parliament in the coming weeks, could result in the army holding 20,000 additional security checks per year, the report from German publisher Funke Mediengruppe said.”
Well, that’s good news. But why weren’t the security checks performed pre-entry? In a phrase: Radical liberals would have it believed that all refugees, all immigrants are at all times simply and lovingly seeking better and peaceful lives for their families.
Refugees, so welcome by liberal-leaning politicians, are oftentimes hiding places for terrorists and Islamic jihadists.
And as Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch writes: Doing the checks first would have rallied the liberals into crying, “Islamaphobia.”
“That’s the very definition of madness. But apparently any other course of action would have been ‘Islamophobic.’”
It’d be nice if government leaders, whether Germany or the United States of America, would put citizen safety ahead of political correctness – unless, of course, these so-called oversights and PC-based failures are due to something deeper, more purposeful and far darker in intent.
