Turkey’s anti-terrorism police have detained more than 440 people for alleged links to ISIS, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported Sunday. Anadolu said 60 ISIS suspects, the vast majority of them foreigners, were taken into custody early Sunday in the capital, Ankara. It said a total of 445 people were detained in simultaneous pre-dawn police operations that spanned several cities, including Istanbul and Gaziantep, near the border with Syria.
The largest operation was in the southeast province of Sanliurfa, where police took into custody more than 100 suspects from multiple addresses and found materials relating to ISIS militants. Security forces also apprehended nine suspects who were allegedly preparing an attack in the northwestern city of Izmir. Anadolu said most of all those detained were Syrian refugees but there were 10 minors among the foreigners detained in Istanbul and the northwestern province of Kocaeli.
Turkey, which last year endured a failed coup attempt and dozens of bloody attacks linked to ISIS or Kurdish militants, has been stepping up its anti-terrorism efforts. ISIS claimed responsibility for a New Year’s Eve mass shooting at an Istanbul nightclub that killed 39 people. It claims to have multiple cells in Turkey.
Some of those taken into custody Sunday reportedly were active in conflict zones and engaged in recruitment efforts for ISIS, relaying its propaganda over social media. lslamic Extremists have infiltrated the refugee population worldwide. Their goal is global domination and any nation that accepts them is vulnerable to attack. Worldwide open border policies have come home to roost.
The failed open border policy of German Chancellor Angela Merkel has caused an onslaught of terror attacks in that country. Unlike Germany, most of the U.S. borders are protected by oceans. That’s no longer a secure barrier with the courts allowing in refugees as fast as they can get off the boat. Our southern border with Mexico is so porous that it’s no problem for terrorists to enter the country that way as well.
Mexican drug cartels, Hezbollah (Party of God) and other Islamic terrorist groups like ISIS are joining forces in Mexico. Hezbollah is synonymous with terror, suicide attacks bombings, kidnappings, and beheadings. Other tactics include assassination, hijacking and human trafficking.
Global Islamic terrorists have moved into Mexico and other Latin American countries, opening the door for Mexican cartels to have access to Afghan opium at bargain basement prices. The profits from those sales are being passed on to Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations worldwide to attack the states from within. Hezbollah is known to be raising money for their cause in the U.S and are waiting for further instructions to attack.
There are known ISIS cells in all fifty states waiting for orders to attack. The number of Syrian refugees in this country stands at over 100,000. They were accepted with little or no vetting. Apparently, liberals believe that unless you walk off the boat wearing a suicide vest, you don’t qualify as a foreign terrorist. Even though they’re all Muslim, they won’t even call them Islamic terrorists. Their strategy is clear.
Seventy-five percent of the Guantanamo Bay detainees have been released. Among them was the mastermind bomb maker behind the 9/11 attacks. All the detainees have been returned to their country of origin, where they’ll be free to rejoin their respective terror groups, or come to the U.S.
Donald Trump knows how to deal with this. In any conflict, enemy combatants are identified and killed or captured. They must first be separated from the rest of the population. This vetting process must take place before any of them can step foot on American soil.
The old saying of closing the barn door after the horse gets out is very applicable. It makes no sense allow anyone to come into our country without attempting to investigate their intentions. We already have too many horses out and the barn door is still wide open. Trump will close it.
Drugs pour across our southern border and human trafficking is at an all-time high. Open gun battles between cartels and our Border Patrol Agents are frequent. The Agents hands were tied by the Obama administration. Barack Obama left office with blood on his hands with the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. He was killed in a gunfight with cartel members with a gun sold to them by the A.T.F in the Fast and Furious scandal.
Donald Trump has correctly identified the Mexican drug cartels as terrorists. They’ve committed as many, if not more, horrific acts than the Islamic terrorists. They behead, dismember, and commit other unspeakable acts to further their interests.
President Trump is fighting for the security of all Americans. There’re isn’t a more urgent facet to protecting our citizens than securing our borders and vetting all refugees.
