Three more refugee-terrorists have been arrested, two in an invader center in Graz, Austria, and a third in Germany, police in both countries have announced.
Two “Syrians,” brothers aged 16 and 18, were arrested in the Leibnitz district in Styria last Thursday after a tip-off from German authorities, the prosecutor’s office in the city of Graz said.
The younger invader is a member of the Islamic State (ISIS) group, while his older sibling is thought to have fought for the Harakat Ahrar ash-Sham al-Islamiyya (“Islamic Movement of the Free Men of the Levant”), a coalition of Islamists and Salafists which was the second single most powerful unit fighting the Syrian government—and which also formed part of the “Free Syrian Army” which was backed by the US and UK governments.
The Austrian prosecutors have announced that the two have been charged with committing terrorist acts, including attempted murder and torture.
The third arrest—another brother of the pair arrested in Austria—was arrested in Germany, Austrian prosecutor spokesman Hansjörg Bacher said, adding that the three have already made confessions.
“The younger of the two [arrested in Austria] acted in Syria as a Sharia police officer for the IS and enforced Islamic laws, while the older belonged to the Islamist militia al-Ahrar Sham,” he said.
The two “Syrians” had officially applied for “asylum” in Austria and had been given accommodation—at the Austrian taxpayers’ expense—at the “Welcome House of Caritas” for “unaccompanied minors” in Lebring near Graz.
There are 107 such “unaccompanied minors” in the house, with a further 400 housed in other facilities in the province of Styria. So far this year, some 95,000 nonwhite invaders have claimed “asylum” in Austria, an unprecedented invasion force consisting mostly of young males.
* In another development, a Tunisian “refugee” invader was arrested at the Vienna Schwechat airport, booked on an aircraft to Turkey. A warrant for his arrest had been issued in Bavaria, where he had earlier claimed asylum. After his arrest, it became apparent that he had intended to travel to Syria to join IS.
Meanwhile, an increasing number of invaders from Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kosovo are returning to their home countries voluntarily, saying that they had expected better care and a shorter asylum process in Austria.
According to a report in the Local news service in Austria, figures from the Interior Ministry show that between January and November this year over 1,100 Kosovans left Austria voluntarily.
So far, 530 invaders from Iraq have returned home, and 120 from Afghanistan. “This trend has become more noticeable since mid-September,” Interior Ministry spokesman Karl-Heinz Grundböck said.
The Caritas charity said that their figures showed that between September 1st and December 14th, some 257 Iraqis, 35 Afghans, and 53 Iranians flew home. Most had been resident in Vienna.
Three Iraqi invaders who spoke to the Kurier newspaper said they planned to fly home after spending three months in Austria.
“We’ve just been humiliated here,” said Omer. “It was a mistake to come. People look at us here as if we were terrorists. Dogs are treated better than refugees in Austria—at least they have something good to eat, and are even given something to wear.”
