Bulgarian Defence Minister Nikolay Nenchev warned of the possible presence of terrorists among the refugees entering the country.

Nenchev expressed his concern on Saturday, private NOVA TV quotes him as saying.

His concern stems from the fact that very often there are people recruited by terrorist groups and organisations, including Islamic State (IS), among refugees.

Nenchev also expressed concern that quite often there are economic immigrants and people with criminal record among refugees.

Therefore, it was necessary to guard the borders and carefully check every migrant entering the country in order to prevent the entry of potentially dangerous people.

The muslim immigrants will not find in the EU what they are looking for. Their frustration will rise and they may become an even easier prey for the IS propaganda what can result in terrorism or even home war (on some later stage). Majority of them are uneducated shepherds from deserts somewhere in Pakistan or Afganistan. The EU's economy does need immigrants, but not such. Due to the mechanisation, there are no more simple jobs in agriculture and industry which are the only ones they could do. We need other immigrants, let's get Ukrainians, Byelarussians and Russians instead.

ISIS have been quite open about the fact that they have infiltrated the migrants, most of whom are not refugees anyway

Oh Lord give me strength. I don\'t know whether to laugh or cry. Actually I\'m LMAO. Talk about stating the obvious ffs. Poor thing though, our Defence Minister Nenchev looks a little slow. Bless him.
