Third chapter of the World War is about to happen as ISIS are close to taking over the Northern Syrian town of Kobane which shares border with Turkey, a British officials warns. With the influx of a number of refugees from Arabian and Middle East countries to Turkey and other European nations, it is possible that 'they' are already in the continent.
For former foreign minister and ex-chair of the Security and Intelligence Committee Kim Howells, the problem is not just the numbers of Europeans joining the ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) but also the number of refugees coming to the continent. He believes that some of them might only be disguising to seek refugees but the real aim is to infiltrate the country.
"We are very much in the grip of what I believe is the Third World War," the Falklands veteran told WalesOnline.
"It may be the beginning but we are in it."
"We are already fully stretched with the people who are here already, let alone having to cope with a large number of new refugees here as agents for terrorist organizations," Howells said.
"There are already some who are here already. We have seen the efforts of the Home Office trying to remove those who are either terrorists, terrorist apologists, fundraisers for terrorists or people prepared to preach on their behalf."
He went on to lambaste the policy that makes it easy for terrorist leaders to enter Britain.
"One of the things that has upset a great many countries over the past 20 years has been the way in which people who are regarded as terrorist leaders have been allowed to live in Britain.
"It has affected some universities. There are people accused of human rights abuses in Rwanda and Nigeria who have completed university degrees subsequent to being granted refugee status in this country.
"There have been Islamic charities in the UK that have been fronts for groups like Isis and Al-Qaeda. No-one should be surprised this is a tactic they would use."
Howells also explained that Turkey is the hole that lets ISIS militants do what they want.
"The problem is Turkey - it is a serious problem. They are playing a strange game. They allow Isis fighters to move into Syria but they won't let the Kurdish do the same to defend Kurdish cities because they consider the Kurdish to be a greater threat than Isis.
"They think Isis the lesser of two enemies despite the fact Isis are willing to kill people in France, Germany and Britain ."
