Much ado has been made recently about the rash of predominantly Muslim immigrants who are flooding European countries like Germany and Sweden. The attention to this surge is well founded as many of the proposed "refugees" are military-aged males who are traveling without women and children accompanying them. They claim to be fleeing war-torn areas yet seem unconcerned with leaving their own families there.
A far too politically correct society has caused many to ignore this incursion for what it is which is a strategic movement on behalf of radical jihadists to infiltrate these immigrant groups so that they can commit more acts of terrorism and eventually reach their goal of a caliphate.
Although it hasn't happened on as large a scale in the US as it has in Europe the danger exists nonetheless as it appears that the current administration is more than eager to bring thousands of Syrian refugees into the country.
What has been lost on the majority to include those in Law Enforcement is the fact that radical Islamist have penetrated the foreign ranks of some of the United States largest Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs.
This activity had been suspected for quite some time in Australia as more and more Muslim bikers have joined the ranks of the Hells Angels and Bandidos to include a close association between the Bandidos and the Muslim Brotherhood. Other Australian born motorcycle gangs like the Comanchero and Rebels are also known for opening their ranks to Muslim members.
In Germany some members of a Lebanese crime syndicate formed a chapter of the US based Mongols Motorcycle Gang. Of particular interest was the fact that these "bikers" really were not bikers at all and the majority did not own a motorcycle or possess a license that would allow them to operate one.
The ability of an Islamic extremist to join one of these organizations provides access to a large network of criminals with access to firearms, explosives and drugs which can be used or sold to support acts of terrorism. Motorcycles, for the ones who choose to use them provide mobility and the membership in the gang allows them to travel literally anywhere in the world on "club business" with most people viewing them as no more than just another biker.
Some of these individuals have openly expressed their affiliation and support of Isis on social media as well as posting cartoons and other pictures with anti America and anti Israel sentiments.
We are now seeing Australian and European born motorcycle gangs with Muslim membership like the Rebels, Comanchero and Satudarah opening chapters within the US and Canada. This only increases the possibility of terrorist attacks on US soil.
