Germans fear the rise of ‘lawless’ neighborhoods, poll shows

(GW) –A new survey has shown that about half of Germans believe there are places in the country so lawless, even police won’t venture there. However, whether the facts support this perception is doubtful.

A poll published on Sunday by Germany’s biggest tabloid, Bild, found that just a little over half of Germans believe there are neighborhoods in the country so dangerous that even police fear to tread there.

About 51 percent of participants said that they believed lawless “no-go” zones existed, whereas 41 percent said there were no such areas in Germany. About 77 percent said they wished police would crack down harder on crime syndicates.

The somewhat dubious concept of lawless areas in Germany has been promoted in no small part by disproportionate reporting of crimes committed by migrants and foreigners in popular media, particularly outlets like Bild.

Statistics published biannually by the Federal Criminal Police (BKA) paint a different picture. According to the BKA, foreigners are less likely than native-born Germans to commit every category of crime.

The BKA’s latest report from January 2018 further clarifies that the majority of the crimes committed by foreigners are things such as riding public transport without a ticket and petty theft.

Muslim terrorist caught at the last second in Germany, this would have killed 200

(MAD WORLD NEWS) — Adam Casalino

Law enforcement apprehended a 20-year-old Syrian migrant for a planned terror attack in Germany. Had he gotten away with it, it would have shocked the world.

All over the West, would-be terrorists find new ways of infiltration. In the United States, our flawed lottery visa system and chain migration is a major problem. People are granted entry into the United States at random. There is no sufficient vetting taking place. Nor are these people welcomed based on their merits or accomplishments. From there, extended families are allowed in — with even less scrutiny.

Numerous terrorists have entered the United States that way. It is a glaring hole in our national security. But if you think that’s bad, just take a look at Europe. For years, European nations have welcomed millions of outsiders, due to the migrant crisis. These people come from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Some of them have fled war, but most go to Europe for the government handouts.

It’s been openly acknowledged that European governments cannot vet all of the people flooding their borders. These migrants could be from anywhere. They could have ties to some of the worst terrorist organizations on the planet. Often, they are up to no good.

That was the case of 20-year-old Yamen A. The Syrian national was apprehended by German police. They discovered that he was plotting a massive terror attack for ISIS. According to officials, he would have killed almost 200 people.

A 20-year-old Syrian national has been charged by German prosecutors with plotting a major radical Islamic terrorist attack which they claim could have killed up to 200 people.

The man, identified as Yamen A., has been brought up on charges of “preparing serious state-damaging violence,” according to a press release from the Public Prosecutor General.

The prosecutor said that the 20-year-old had been preparing explosive devices and was looking to perform a mass casualty terror attack on behalf of the Islamic State terror group.

Yamen A. is said to have become radicalized last summer and had determined in July of 2017 that he would perpetrate a terrorist attack in Hamburg. They say he wanted to blow himself up in a crowded area but were not totally positive on where the suspected terrorist would have carried out the attack. [Source: Breitbart]

They say that Yamen was “radicalized” last summer, as if it was something that happened recently. How is that possible? How is an otherwise normal person transformed into a radical agent of death?

Islamic State fighter on trial admits terror group sent him disguised as refugee

(BREITBART) — by Chris Tomlinson

Three Syrian migrants are currently on trial in Hamburg for being members of a terrorist cell and one of the men has admitted that the Islamic State terror organization sent him to Germany telling him to disguise himself as a refugee.

The three Syrians, aged between 19 and 27, came to Germany during the migrant crisis in 2015 and were arrested in September of 2016 at asylum homes in Ahrensburg, Großhansdorf and Reinbek near Hamburg, Suddeutsche Zeitung reports.

For the last eight months, the judges in the court have tried to determine whether or not the men were sent by the Islamic State, or whether they were radicalized independently.

The eldest defendant, 27-year-old Mohamed A., confirmed to the judge that he had been commanded by the Islamic State terror group to infiltrate the wave of refugees and wait in Germany for further instructions.

The 27-year-old said that he trained with the terror group in its former capital of Raqqa for three months with four different weapons before heading to Europe. An Islamic State member also gave him a forged passport along with a sum of $1,500.

As early as December of 2015, three weeks after he arrived in the country, German police showed up to Mohamed’s asylum home and told him they had an eye on him. As a result, no contact from the Islamic State came.

The fear of the terror group sending fighters to Europe as asylum seekers has been constant since 2015 and many warned that the group would employ such tactics.

German Pro-Muslim invasion activist changes her position: ‘It’s too late for Germany’

(FREEDOM OUTPOST) — Suzanne Hamner — February 10, 2018

It’s never pleasant to be right about certain situations when an entire group of people suffer because of the lack of their government and some individuals in that nation to engage in critical thinking and listening skills. But, that is exactly what happened in Germany.

When the German government of Angela Merkel issued an open invitation to illegal alien invasion of Germany, many individuals predicted the end of Germany as we know it and the beginning of Germany descending into a lawless, crime-ridden society.

According to one German refugee worker, she was wrong about open borders, admitted it was “too late” for Germany and has planned to emigrate to Poland.

Infowars.com reported:

A refugee worker who once welcomed Angela Merkel’s decision to open Germany’s borders to over a million predominantly Muslim migrants now admits she was wrong and is emigrating to Poland, asserting, “It’s too late for Germany.”

After founding the refugee aid association Working Group Asylum + Human Rights in 2012, Rebecca Sommer was delighted to welcome the deluge of migrants that began arriving in Germany in the second half of 2015.

“At that time I wanted to help everyone and truly believed that all these people were fleeing hell and were in a state of complete distress,” Sommer told Polish weekly Do Rzeczy.

Along with over 300 volunteers, Sommer began providing German language courses to the new arrivals with the aim of helping them integrate into society.

With the initial hope that “their medieval view was going to change with time,” Sommer soon realized that, “Muslim refugees have grown up with values that are totally different, they have undergone brainwashing from childhood on and are indoctrinated by Islam and absolutely do not intend to adopt our values.”

Did not many claim that those who follow Islam and are Muslim do not intend to adopt western values, assimilate and integrate smoothly into our societies, and would initiate a cultural takeover once sufficient numbers were reached? Yes, yes we did. For communicating the truth, we were called “racists,” “bigots,” and “Islamophobes.”

Unfortunately, the truth has won out and the German people are witnessing and experiencing the reality of these warnings.

Sommer has realized she was wrong, identifying Muslims as an “existential threat” to Germany.

She also observed how the migrants, “regard we infidels with disdain and arrogance,” after they began to refer to her as “the stupid German whore,” a realization that she says has led other refugee volunteers to quit.

Sommer now admits that despite her good intentions, she got it completely wrong and that Muslim migration poses an existential threat to the Germany way of life, a problem that will only be exacerbated by the process of family reunification, where migrants will be able to invite their relatives to stay in Germany.

“If Poland and Hungary do not give in on this question, you could become countries that some Germans and French will flee to. You could become islands of stability in Europe,” said Sommer, adding that she has been personally attacked five separate times by Arabic-speaking men.

Indeed, fear of sexual assault is now so commonplace in Germany that jogging shorts which emit a high pitch alarm when triggered are selling like hot cakes.

The question is, “why are not Germans willing to stand up and fight for their country?” Instead of calling up courage to defeat the invasion some of their own people invited, the solution Sommer envisioned is retreat, letting Muslim non-Germans dominate the nation to engage in eradicating German culture, history and landmarks. Sommer, who assisted in the illegal alien invasion of Germany, has chosen to leave instead of trying to fight to reverse the course of cultural destruction she and others initiated.

Infowars.com continued:

Following the mass sexual molestation of women in Cologne two years ago, Berlin set up “safe zones” where women could congregate to avoid being assaulted. Police statistics for 2016 show that a full half of the crimes committed in Berlin were carried out by migrants.

A recent study by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs found that there is a direct correlation between the country’s rising violent crime rate and the mass influx of migrants.

Sommer concludes that with family reunification, Germany will be swamped by Muslim migrants and that political Islam, which is already beginning to exert its influence in schools, political parties, the government and the police force, will eventually become completely dominant.

“It’s too late for Germany,” she adds.

Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson provides a video documenting the Islamification of Germany through TV shows, advertisements promoting the hijab, and a TV station changing its logo to reflect the crescent moon and star of Islam. Watson called this a mass indoctrination of the public and a “reeducation program aimed at normalizing Islam.”

In other words, Germans are being brainwashed into thinking they are the ones that need to assimilate to Islamic culture, not the other way around.

Look at what has happened with ISIS in the Middle East – archaeological sites, such as Ninevah, have been razed to the ground because Islam tolerates nothing that is not of Islam. Islamists have destroyed other archaeological sites to dig for valuable antiquities in order to finance their destruction of people and country.

The same thing will happen in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and any other sovereign nation where the unfettered illegal alien invasion of Muslims occur.

Interestingly enough, someone claiming to be Rebecca Sommers has commented to the original article, on another WordPress blog and on Infowars.com declaring these stories to be “fake news” without providing any clarification on that. The original source article at Delit D’Images can be viewed in English translation here.

This story has been picked up by several news agencies worldwide and now, it seems, the activist Sommers may be trying to mitigate the damage caused by her reversal of opinion on illegal Muslim invasion. Those commenting on the article at Infowars.com are not convinced the comment is by the real Sommers. Many refuse to give any sympathy toward her change of heart.

Julius Bond wrote, “Great, so you help in getting a military might force of young Muslim men into your country then you high tail it like the coward you are? Yep, sounds about right for liberal nut-jobs.”

Muslim population in some European countries ‘could triple’ by 2050′

(THE SUN) — By Brittany Vonow

The Muslim population in countries across Europe could triple by 2050, a report has suggested.

Finland’s Muslim population alone could increase by more than four times, while the UK could see an increase of 2.65 times in little more than a decade, according to projections made in the study.

According to one of the medium projections for 2050, 16.7 per cent of the UK population will be Muslim

According to one of the medium projections for 2050, 16.7 per cent of the UK population will be Muslim

Around 6.3 per cent of the UK’s population is currently Muslim – compared to the percentage of 4.9 across Europe – with the country potentially reaching 17.2 per cent in the high migration scenario, to the Washington-based Pew Forum report suggested.

The report said countries like Germany and Sweden that would see the biggest growth in Muslim population, stating: “Countries that have received relatively large numbers of Muslim refugees in recent years are projected to experience the biggest changes in the high migration scenario.”

Under the highest level projections, one in five people in Germany would be Muslim by 2050, Sweden is expected to see almost one in three.

The report examined three scenarios – where migration into Europe was to completely and permanently stop immediately, where all refugee levels would slow but that the migration of those who come for reasons other than seeking asylum would continue, or finally that the flow of refugees into Europe would continue indefinitely.

Under the projection of high migration, that percentage could be as high as 14 per cent.

Even under the first projection where migration would stop completely, Europe’s Muslim population was predicted to grow by 7.4 per cent.

The report identified the UK as the desired destination for a larger number of migrants from outside Europe, with 1.6m people arriving in the country between 2010 and 2016.

It stated: “The UK voted in a 2016 referendum to leave the EU, which may impact immigration patterns in the future.”

Thousands of knife attacks ravage Germany following migrant surge

(WND) — The flood of immigrants to Germany has been accompanied by an explosion in knife crimes, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Soeren Kern, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute, has created a list of such incidents.

“In recent months, people armed with knives, axes and machetes have brought devastation to all of Germany’s 16 federal states,” he said. “Knives have been used not only to carry out jihadist attacks, but also to commit homicides, robberies, home invasions, sexual assaults, honor killings and many other types of violent crime.”

He said knife-related crimes “have occurred in amusement parks, bicycle trails, hotels, parks, public squares, public transportation, restaurants, schools, supermarkets and train stations.”

The “surge,” he said, “is drawing renewed attention to the deteriorating security situation there since Chancellor Angela Merkel’s 2015 decision to allow win more than a million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.”

Kern’s review of police blotters and other sources found random and unprovoked attacks on strangers.

In Monchengladbach, for example, an 18-year-old illegal alien from Algeria drew a knife on a 65-year-old man in a wheelchair. In Hamburg, a 23-year-old man was stabbed after he made “accidental eye contact” with an attacker. Both attacks were in October.

Also, a 46-year-old father at an amusement park was stabbed and seriously hurt when he was attacked by a gang of Afghan youths.

Kern’s report said 2017 is “on track to become a record year for stabbings and knife crimes: Police reported more than 3,500 knife-related crimes between January and October 2017, compared to around 4,000 reported crimes during all of 2016 – and only 300 in 2007.”

Overall, during the past 10 years, he said, knife-related crimes in Germany have increased by more than 1,200 percent.

Intel chief – Germany must expect attacks by lone wolves & terrorist groups at ‘any time’

(RT) — Germany is likely to see more terrorist attacks conducted by Islamist jihadists, the country’s domestic intelligence chief has said while presenting an annual report which analyses threats to the state from all forms of extremism.

“We must expect further attacks by individuals or terror groups,” the Bundesamt fur Verfassungsschutz (BfV) chief, Hans-Georg Maassen said Tuesday. “Islamist terrorism is the biggest challenge facing the BfV and we see it as one of the biggest threats facing the internal security of Germany.”

The statement followed the agency publishing its annual report on constitution protection and threats to the state. It said some 24,400 Islamists remain in Germany, including around 10,000 Salafists, an ultra-conservative movement within Sunni Islam, followers of which have been prone to terrorism.

“The attacks have substantiated the IS threat scenario in Germany. IS can be held responsible for all attacks mounted in Germany in 2016,” the report reads. “Germany is the focus of Islamist terrorism. Terrorist incidents are possible in Germany at any time in the future.”

Maassen said jihadists managed to carry out five attacks in 2016 while security services thwarted another seven.

The report classified the 2016 attacks in Germany as part of whats been termed, “phenomenon of the individual jihad,” acts which are committed by individuals or “micro groups.”

Germany is currently monitoring some 680 Islamist radicals who could potentially carry out an attack, according to Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere.

The intelligent assessment said young people remain vulnerable to terrorist recruitment schemes as the youth “are particularly susceptible to jihadist propaganda, especially spread via social media.”

The report noted that the younger generation can easily be indoctrinated to “develop a readiness to consequently obey the order to kill unbelievers.”

New potential terrorists “possibly entering Europe under cover as part of the migration movement” as well as those returning from war zones in Syria and Iraq, remain under the radar of the security agencies, the report notes.

Maassen estimated that some 930 people left Germany to fight in Syria or Iraq, 20 percent of whom were women. From that number, the BfV chief believes 145 people have been killed in action.

Besides the jihadist and Islamist terrorism threat, the constitution protection report also analyzed the activities of various other groups, including far-right and far-left extremists.

With far-right extremism on the surge, events “directly or indirectly associated with Islam” have been frequently exploited by far-right sympathizers, the report notes. Last year, those accounted for 23,100 members while the number of violent offenses rose to 1,600. More than a half of those crimes particularly targeted asylum seekers and accommodation facilities.

Security has been stepped up in Germany following five lone-wolf terror attacks in the country last year. The most noted attack happened in December 2016, when a Tunisian asylum seeker, who pledged allegiance to Islamic State, plowed a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 people.

Germany is now focusing all its efforts on this weekend’s G20 summit in Hamburg where around 20,000 security officers have been deployed.

Dozens of Al-Nusra, ISIS-affiliated jihadists entered Germany posing as refugees

(RT) — Several dozen Syrian extremists linked to both al-Nusra Front and ISIS, who committed “numerous massacres” of civilians and captives, have sought asylum in Germany, Der Spiegel reports.

Some 60 members of a Syrian militant group called Liwa Owais al-Korani or the Owais al-Korani Brigade arrived to Germany as refugees, Der Spiegel reports, citing sources within the German security services.

The Owais al-Korani Brigade initially fought on the side of the Free Syrian Army but then switched sides and joined al-Nusra Front (now self-styled Jabhat Fateh al-Sham) – Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, the weekly says, adding that the group also fought alongside Islamic State(IS, former ISIS/ISIL) in the Raqqa province for months.

The group’s fighters were involved in “numerous massacres of captured civilians and Syrian soldiers,” the report says, adding that at least 300 people died at the hands of the militants.

One of the Owais al-Korani Brigade former commanders identified as Abdul Dschawad al-K., who came to Germany in October 2014 and was granted asylum, took part in the mass execution of civilians and prisoners of war.

During the massacre that happened near the Syrian town of Tabka in March 2013, the Owais al-Korani Brigade militants killed 36 policemen, administrative workers and militia fighters who supported Syrian President Bashar Assad. Some of the massacre victims were beheaded.

Less than half of group members identified so far

The German state security service, the Federal Office for Protection of the Constitution (BfV), established a special task force to deal with the group members who came to Germany, according to the Spiegel report. So far, the investigators have successfully identified 25 former Owais al-Korani Brigade fighters who sought asylum in Germany.

Some of the group’s members have already been charged with war crimes and will stand trial in late September. Abdul Dschawad al-K, who is also among those charged, not only took part in massacres in Syria but also reportedly planned to carry out a terrorist attack in the German city of Dusseldorf in the name of Islamic State.

Islamist ‘morality police’ using violence, intimidation to enforce shariah law in Germany

(BREITBART) — by Jack Montgomery

Islamist gangs are using violence and intimidation to enforce Shariah law in parts of Germany, particularly against Chechen and Chechen-origin women in Berlin, according to reports.

Der Taggespiegel reports that a threatening video of an armed man in a hood has been circulating in the Chechen community since March 2017 through the WhatsApp messaging service.

“Here, in Europe, certain Chechen women and men who look like women do unspeakable things. You know it; I know it; everybody knows it,” declares the pistol-waving fanatic.

“[Chechen women] who flirt with men of other ethnic groups and marry them, Chechen women who have chosen the wrong path and those [creatures] who call themselves Chechen men – given half a chance, we will set all of them straight.

“Having sworn on the Quran, we go out onto the streets. This is our declaration of intent; do not say that you were not warned; do not say that you did not know.”

The rough justice meted out by Berlin’s shariah enforcers was described by a female victim in an interview with Meduza, a Latvia-based news organization.

The woman described how Islamists recorded her walking down the street with a non-Chechen man and later showed up at her house. She managed to conceal herself but the man was seized and brutally beaten, losing most of his teeth.

BREAKING NEWS: Berlin terror attack: Truck plows into crowd of shoppers killing nine, trapping others and leaving 50 injured at Christmas market – with killer driver now on the run

(UK DAILY MAIL) — At least nine people have been killed and more than 50 injured after a truck plowed through a crowd of shoppers at 40mph in a busy Christmas market in Berlin.

German police at the scene have indicated the incident is likely to be a terror attack.

The vehicle sped through a crowd of shoppers at the market on Breitscheidplatz Square near the Kurfuerstendamm Avenue in west Berlin.

The driver of the truck was arrested near the scene and is in police custody after initially fleeing the area, while a passenger died.

Police in Berlin are now using Twitter to urge locals to stay in their homes as German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she is ‘mourning the dead’.

Ambulances and police rushed to the area after the driver mounted the pavement of the market in a central square popular with tourists – in scenes reminiscent of the deadly truck attack in the French city of Nice in July.

‘I heard a big noise and then I moved on the Christmas market and saw much chaos…many injured people,’ Jan Hollitzer, deputy editor in chief of Berliner Morgenpost, told CNN. ‘It was really traumatic.’

Horrifying pictures and videos from Berlin show emergency services racing to the scene and the devastating aftermath as the lorry plowed through the market.

Terrified market-goers tweeted horrifying images from the scene of the incident – which comes just one hour after the Russian ambassador was shot dead in Ankara.

German police have urged civilians to remain at home

Mike Fox, a tourist from Birmingham, said the large truck missed him by about three meters as it drove into the market, tearing through tables and wooden stands. ‘It was definitely deliberate,’ he said.

Mr Fox said he helped people who appeared to have broken limbs, and said others were trapped under Christmas stands.

British tourist Emma Rushton tweeted from the scene: ‘Lorry just plowed through Christmas market in #berlin.

‘There is no road nearby. People crushed. I am safe. I am safe’.

She saw the truck rush past her at speed and said it could not have been an accident.

She told Sky News she only missed being caught in the chaos because she had climbed up some steps to take a seat.

Ms Rushton said: ‘The stall that we bought our mulled wine from was completely crushed. People were tearing off wooden panels to get out.’

She added: ‘It was not an accident. It was going 40mph, it was in the middle of the market. There was no way that it could have come off the road and it showed no signs of slowing down.’
