Vienna airport suspends “IS sympathizer from Bosnia”

Posted on April 6, 2016 by




An unnamed man originally from Bosnia-Herzegovina, employed by Vienna’s Schwechat airport, has been suspended for being “a sympathizer of Islamic State.”

The discovery came after Belgian police unions warned, in the wake of last month’s terrorist attacks in Brussels, that “supporters of Islamic State can be found among the employees of airports across Europe.”

Media in Vienna are reporting that the Bosnian man worked as a technician at the airport for many years.

The Bosnian ISIS supporter has posted pictures of himself online showing him “holding a raised index finger, in a victorious pose – similar to Islamic State fighters.”

In addition, he “used some websites” to express his liking of Islamic State, “and followed radical Salafi messages,” while other employees thought he stood out due to his “radical world view.”

However, the very first Islamist base in Europe was created with the help of EU, USA, during the war in Bosnia i Hercegovina.
