Warning issued: The Islamic State is training jihadis in Caribbean tourist hotspots


The barbaric Islamic State (ISIS) will train jihadis in a Caribbean tourist hotspots when fighters are forced to return home from Syria and Iraq where the terror cult has been smashed.
Fears are growing Western holidaymakers will be targeted in terror attacks by depraved terrorists who have travelled back to Trinidad and Tobago from the beaten caliphate.
This is a legitimate fear, not only in the Caribbean, but all over the Western hemisphere, with jihadis returning from the Islamic State, feeling “humiliated” by the infidel and so more motivated to strike that infidel at home. M15 in Britain has reported a threat heightened as never before, with 23,000 jihadis reportedly living in Britain.
Now, a new warning comes that “fighters will be able to travel between most of the Caribbean islands without a visa, meaning reaching the Bahamas would leave any terrorist just a step away from Florida.”
Adding to the severity of this threat are the facts that the only attempted Islamic overthrow of a Western government happened in Trinidad, and that the country also has the highest rate of Islamic State recruitment in Western hemisphere.
The West remains asleep with regards to the nature of this religious war, which is fueled by a zealotry that glorifies jihad fighters for murder.
“HOLIDAY WARNING: ISIS training jihadis in Caribbean tourist hotspots to target Westerners”, by Rebecca Perring, Express, October 24, 2017:
Fears are growing Western holidaymakers will be targeted in terror attacks by depraved terrorists who have travelled back to Trinidad and Tobago from the beaten caliphate.
So much so, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) is currently taking measures to prevent fighters from returning to the islands, located southeastern from the United States, into a platform from which terrorist attacks can be organised.
When quizzed over the risk of jihadis returning, Minister of National Security of Trinidad and Tobago at the CARICOM replied: “It is not a matter of yes but when.”
The warning comes amid fears fighters will be able to travel between most of the Caribbean islands without a visa, meaning reaching the Bahamas would leave any terrorist just a step away from Florida.
According to the Caribbean Crime and Security Implementation Agency (Impacs), more than 200 people have travelled from the Caribbean in recent years to join ISIS.
Particular concern exists in Trinidad and Tobago, which has the highest proportion of Islamist radicalisation throughout America.
With 1.3 million citizens and a community of 104,000 Muslims, at least 130 people have travelled to Syria to live and fight under the flag of ISIS, according to figures revealed by the Government of Trinidad between 2013 and 2014.
Islamic radicalism is not new in Trinidad and Tobago.
In 1990 there was a failed coup by a radicalised Muslim group, but it was in 2007 when this country and neighbouring Guyana planned an attack against fuel tanks at JFK airport in New York….
