LIBYA - Islamic State fighters are being smuggled into Europe by gangs in the Mediterranean, an adviser to the Libyan government has told the BBC. Abdul Basit Haroun said smugglers were hiding ISIS militants on boats filled with migrants. Officials in Italy & Egypt have previously warned that ISIS militants could reach Europe by migrant boat. However, experts have cautioned that it is very difficult to verify or assess such claims.
He alleged that ISIS was allowing the boat owners to continue their operations in exchange for half of their income. About 60,000 people are estimated to have tried to cross the Mediterranean this year, fleeing conflict & poverty. Since the 2011 uprising, Libya has been without a stable government & the chaos has allowed trafficking networks there to thrive. Mr Haroun said IS used the boats " for their people who they want to send to Europe, as the European police don't know who is from IS and who is a normal refugee or not ". These militants often sat separately from the other migrants, he said.
Earlier this year, the EU's border control agency, Frontex, warned that it was " possible " that foreign fighters were using irregular migration routes to get into Europe. Egypt's ambassador to the UK has warned of " boats full of terrorists " if the international community does not act, while the Italian government has expressed fears of militants infiltrating the boats, while emphasising that the boats are a humanitarian crisis.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - Fears are growing that radical ISIS militants are being ' smuggled ' into Europe among the thousands of boat people flooding across the Mediterranean Sea. The human tide of refugees is creating a humanitarian crisis , as desperate migrants flee the violence & poverty in the African continent into the back-door of southern Europe , Italy. The chaos in Libya provides the launching point for this mass exodus of refugees ( & the hidden threat of ISIS infiltrators ). The terror group has already established its barbaric presence in Libya & recently has been threatening to invade Europe. European leaders are worried !!! Nobody more so than Pope Francis , who himself has already called for international military intervention against ISIS , following the Islamist group's open threat to " march on Rome ".
So where is this coming ' anti-ISIS ' alliance ?? Scripture tells us clearly that at the ' time of the end ' , when Russia invades Israel , one of the nations at its side is Libya !! ( Ezekiel 38v5 ). So we know ' with certainty ' this strife-torn nation will soon fall under the influence & hegemony of Russia. Similarly , the Vatican has already made outreach to Russia for co-operation against ISIS , as together in March both Russia & the Vatican co-authored a statement ' approving ' the use of military force ( to protect Christians & other ethnicities from ISIS ) in the absence of a political solution ( see PND item 18Mar'15 ). A ' Vatican-backed ' Russian military presence is coming to Libya . . . to expunge the ISIS threat & to safeguard Rome & Europe. This ' anti-ISIS alliance ' between Moscow & Rome will continue to grow & prosper , as the Vatican shamelessly ingratiates itself to the rising Russian colossus , before they both meet their demise . . . Russia " upon the mountains of Israel " ( Ezekiel 39 ) & the Roman Mother Church before the " East Wind " ( Christ & His Saints )
EZEKIEL 17v7-10 - There was also another ' great eagle ' ( Russia ) with great wings & many feathers & behold ' this vine ' ( Vatican / Papacy ) did bend her roots toward him ( Russian Gog / Putin ) & shot forth her branches toward him , that he might water it by the furrows of her plantation. It ( Vatican / Papacy ) was planted in a good soil by ' great waters ' ( Mediterranean Sea ) that it might bring forth branches & that it might bear fruit , that it might be a ' goodly vine ' . . . . Thus saith the Lord GOD ; Shall it prosper ? shall he not pull up the roots thereof & cut off the fruit thereof , that it wither ? It shall wither in all the leaves of her spring , even without great power or many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof. Yea , behold , being planted , shall it prosper ? shall it not utterly wither , when the ' east wind ' ( Christ & His saints ) toucheth it ? It shall wither in the furrows where it grew.
