BORDER RIOT PICTURES: Minister Calls ‘Allahu Akhbar’ Migrants ‘Jihadis Of Tomorrow’

Macedonian police fired tear gas as migrants screamed “Allah hu Akbar” and tried to break through the border fence from Greece in a series of clashes that left over 200 people injured on Sunday.

The incident happened at the Idomeni border crossing, which is fast becoming infamous as a flashpoint for violence as thousands of stranded migrants try to break through the border into Macedonia to continue their journey to northern Europe.

Now the Greek minister for citizen protection, Nikos Toskas, has warned the body of angry migrants apparently willing to go to any length to force their way into Europe will likely be radicalised.

Referring to the hundreds of young men tearing down border fences, throwing rocks at police and screaming “Allahu Akhbar”, Mr. Toskas said: “what you see today, are the jihadists of tomorrow”.

The minister expressed a concern that radical Islamists in Europe would soon be working to recruit those migrants in Idomeni, reports Kronen Zeitung. Radicals have long been targeting migrants as they arrived in Europe, loitering in German camps and railway stations and offering support to illegals in return for their allegiance.

Breitbart London reported on the comments of a spokesman for the Bavarian security service who said of the radicals: “Salafists are trying to talk with unaccompanied youths who have come to Germany without their families and who are in particular need of support and connections.

“The Salafists are trying to use the desperate situation refugees find themselves in for their own goals”.

Macedonian police confirmed the clashes had happened yesterday, but denied the tear gas had come from their side, with an official telling AFP: “There are some incidents on the Greek side of the border. Greek police are using tear gas near the border with Macedonia. It is calm so far on the Macedonian side of the border.”

Video journalists recording the day’s attack on the border caught repeated screams of “Allah hu Akbar” (Our god is greater than yours) – the Islamic war-cry now well associated in Europe with terror attacks. Migrants had toothpaste smeared on their faces in an attempt to limit the effects of tear gas. Questions are being raised as to who taught the migrants to take such evasive manoeuvres when confronting security forces.

The illegals attempted to overwhelm police by charging in large numbers, tearing down the chain-link fence and throwing rocks and tear-gas bombs at Macedonian police.

Breitbart London reported earlier that a flyer distributed around the migrant camp at Idomeni incited the inmates to attack the fence and move north. It is believed the document may have been distributed by European anarchist activists.
