Intelligence experts in this meeting stressed that “Iraq war can be called a disaster which brought terrorism to the western countries because some of the terrorists based in Iraq moved to western countries.”
Participants in the meeting of intelligence services of the EU, the US and Canada in Hague, describing Iraq’s situation as disastrous, stressed that many of the terrorists have moved to Europe from Iraq since the US-led invasion on this country. Representatives of intelligence services in Hague discussed terrorist groups’ recruiting methods. Participants emphasized that there are two kinds of terrorism in the west. They declared that the first kind includes elements which are mostly middle-aged and are of immigrants and illegal refugees. These elements have a high level of experience in the field of terrorist acts. The second kind includes younger people who have been born in western countries but have ideological contact with their motherland. These people will be more dangerous than the elements in the first kind in the case of being employed. Intelligence experts in this meeting stressed that “Iraq war can be called a disaster which brought terrorism to the western countries because some of the terrorists based in Iraq moved to western countries.” Then, participants said that terrorist groups will change their operation methods in the future and will not use classic methods (such as bombings) and that terrorist groups will assassinate social and political figures in order to spread fear and terror. In this regard and along with fighting terrorism, EU countries and the US signed an agreement to establish a common committee to fight terrorism. This committee’s supposed to investigate and freeze financial properties of terrorist groups. It will also exchange security information on terrorism and will coordinate operations between two sides. This committee, besides using governmental facilities in the US and Europe, will enjoy aids from non-governmental organization and public as well. This committee will do its best in the two sides to get information on terrorists, their activities, and their financial sources. Regarding this report, Irandidban’s International Expert has reminded that after US-led invasion on Iraq, MKO moved several top terrorist elements of its organization to Europe. Recently, MKO’s kidnapping operation was foiled by the victim and police in germany.
