Former Israeli special ops soldier Aaron Cohen said on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday that Europe’s “failed immigration policy” is the reason they’re experiencing a surge in terrorist activity.

Cohen was discussing a New Year’s Eve attack in the UK that left three people stabbed and said lone wolf terror attacks are likely to continue. He also said allowing “nonconforming immigrants into your country” is a recipe for disaster.

“It’s more of the same thing over and over again,” Cohen declared. “There is a commitment with these lone wolves that’s creating a pattern here which is the lone wolf epidemic is very closely knit across Europe and to me that’s concerning.”


“What we have here is the epitome of a failed immigration policy,” he added. (RELATED: Mike Huckabee Warns Europe To ‘Wake Up’ And Change Immigration Policies After Terror Attack)

“I don’t know how else to put this other than the fact if you let a million nonconforming immigrants into your country and grant them citizenship and they’re so diametrically opposed to the way you live, to the values that you believe in and have absolutely zero background capability to be able to vet these immigrants and what they were up to in these prior countries such as Syria and Iraq, Iran — and I’m talking about some of the nastier pockets in the world involving terrorism against the United States — You let them in, in a failed attempt to bring them over these borders and then what you’re going to have is, you’re going to have these pockets of sympathizers growing and spreading their tentacles like nomads across Europe,” Cohen said.

“And that’s what I think we’re looking at, is a failed immigration policy,” he concluded.
