Paris Attackers Were… EU Nationals, & NOT Refugees


All of the attackers in the coordinated Islamic State terrorist assault in Paris on 13/11, who’ve had their identities confirmed thus far, were Europeans who had traveled to Syria.

Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, said earlier this week that the EU was dealing with an “internal threat” in regards to the recent terrorist attacks.

“Let me underlinethe profile of the terrorists so far identified tells us this is an internal threat. It is all EU citizens so far. This can change with the hours, but so far it is quite clear it is an issue of internal domestic security,” Mogherini said.

Who were the attackers?

French officials investigating the deadly Paris attacks have named six people they believe to have carried out the assaults.

Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27: A Belgian national, believed to have masterminded the attack in paris, has fought for the Islamic State in Syria and had been wanted in Belgium for a terrorist plot that was foiled in January.

Ibrahim Abdeslam, 31: A French national living in Belgium blew himself up on Boulevard Voltaire outside the Comptoir Voltaire café.

Salah Abdeslam, 26: The younger brother of Ibrahim, Salah, again a French national living in Belgium, is believed to have rented a VW Polo car in Belgium, which was later found near the Bataclan concert hall where 89 people were killed.

Paris Attack Suspects

Omar Ismael Mostefai, 29: A French citizen of Algerian origin, Omar was one of three attackers at the Bataclan who died at the scene. He was identified from a finger severed when he set off his explosive belt in the concert hall.

Samy Amimour, 28: The French national from the Paris suburb of Drancy was identified as one of the trio behind the Bataclan attack. He was an ISIS sympathizer and traveled to the Middle East to train with them.

Bilal Hadfi, 20: A French national living in Belgium was one of the three attackers said to have detonated his explosives at 9:53 p.m. on Rue de la Cokerie, just outside of a McDonald’s restaurant about 300 meters from the stadium.

The nationality of the unidentified attacker who used a fake Syrian passport is still unknown, and there are still many other suspects to be considered. The discovery of the Syrian passport instilled a fearful backlash across both Europe and the US, prompting several officials and many others to insist on rejecting Syrian refugees in their regions.

Though there is no disagreement that some of these terrorists had spent time in the Middle East, and then returned to Europe, it is important to note that a large portion of these suspected terrorists were European, meaning that the attacks could have still taken place even if the borders were entirely shut off for refugees. Also, the attackers’ ability to re-enter Europe could have been prevented with tighter border controls, considering the fact that many of them were on terror watch lists.

Is shutting off borders, which would create numerous problems for millions of innocent and uninvolved people, a solution or a cowardly act to shed responsibility?

  1. If you had paid attention to the majority you’d know that they establish that this isn’t a refugee problem, but an islam problem.

    • It is not the refugee status that people are against. But that they are muslims infiltrated by ISIS. The Paris attackers were locals but they were muslims.

  2. Are you stupid who of those man was european? None of them they are all refugees from another time. Please do not call them europeans. I live 4 years in Egipt and I become egiptian?

  3. BlindG : If you have the passport and citizenship i would say that you are from that country.
    What does it mean to be an european ? is not everybody refugees at some point in time ? im from sweden and dont really now what the heck you talking about .
    Action and reaction is al thats happening.

  4. It’s sad for everyone. These attackers around the world really need to stop and think their religion is killing them they are being brain washed from others saying that is their duty in life. They really need to drop their religion and just live life. I wish there was really a religion that was true but they all have their beliefs and each one is wrong. I myself is not religious I’m the type that loves to be alive and to see and do things. I don’t know if there is something after death and neither does any other person walking this earth. There are way to many planets in the universe for a person to believe a man written book past to generations eventually a story gets flipped over time. That time was of the past tomorrow is the future. I am not anti religious and hope everyone has their own we need that but not to think that a pardon had given his life for others to take life away. People these days are to much of followers instead of leaders of their own life and family. People will be the cause of destruction of the world

    • I am not a religious fanatic , but I’d rather be brainwashed by religion than fucking politics where disoriented politicians are trying to play God , fuck them all , and blame the calamities in this world on unscrupulous politicians and not religion . If you don’t believe in God stay younger forever , and don’t die , give us antidote for death or shut up .

  5. Mad Hatter, no they were not Europeans. Their common characteristic is that they are Arabs with a European passport. And yes, they are all refugees (of the past) or otherwise children of refugees born in Europe. So, this declaration of that high EU-representative can in no way downplay the danger that is imported with this refugee invasion. If not now, then in 10 to 15 years at the latest.
