When we think of terrorists, most of can’t understand what could possess someone to commit these crimes. Most of us assume that the person/people are brainwashed, mentally handicapped or were abused as children
So what did the recent attack in Brussels teach us? Well as Brietbert reported, one of the alleged terrorists, Osama Krayem, was none of these things. At age 11, Krayem starred in a documentary called “Without Borders — A Film About Sport And Integration.” The documentary highlighted a program run by marketing manager Christer Girke, where migrant boys were encouraged to join and integrate into Swedish society though common interests like sports.
Yet just over 10 years later, the star of the show helped blow up an airport and subway killing 32 civilians and wounding 230
In fact, Krayem had a job with Malmo city council as a management intern, where he worked for a year before suddenly failing to show up for work in 2014. Kreyen had bought tickets to Syria where he successfully joined ISIS. He even documented his experiences by posting all about it on Facebook.
Eventually Krayem returned to Europe through Greece by posing as a Syrian refugee before taking a lead role in the Brussels attack AND (according to a recent Wall Street Journal article) possibly the Paris attacks.
The WSJ reported:
“A spokesman for the federal prosecutor said Tuesday that Osama Krayem—charged with terrorist murders after being accused of being a second attacker in last month’s Brussels subway bombing—was also charged in connection with the Paris attacks.
The spokesman wouldn’t give further details on how Mr. Krayem, a Swedish national, was connected with the Paris probe”
