Here’s where we say this had nothing to do with Islam (other religions have this kind of stuff done in their names all the time, you know).
“All diejenigen, die bisher die Sorgen der Menschen vor einer drohenden Gefahr durch Islamismus ignoriert oder verlacht haben, werden durch diese Bluttat Lügen gestraft.”
I think you may have overshot the mark here, Christian Science Monitor. But nice try.
The reality here is still another one.
Far-right arsonists are believed to have caused fires which damaged three buildings earmarked for asylum seekers near Nuremberg in southern Germany.
“Es spricht einiges dafür, dass es sich um Brandstiftung handelt.”
PS: Oddity 325. Germans really do tend to equate nationality with ethnicity.
German authorities are investigating at least two American male security staff for apparent abuse of asylum seekers in their care in a special housing facility in Burbach, Germany.
The two American suspects, speaking perfect German and having German passports, filmed and photographed their deplorable actions on their mobile phones.
“These are pictures that we would associate with Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib,” everyone in the country babbled mindlessly in unison. “Both security guards are grinning so they just have to be American.”
That means ransom.
You know, like the ransom Germany just paid IS terrorists in Syria to free a 27 year-old German who wandered down there “not being aware of the threat posed there now by the ‘Islamic State.'”
The German government officially denies having paid the ransom, of course, but they have a long tradition of doing this. Paying the ransom and then denying that they did, I mean. And this is a very sound policy, I find, because by doing so they never have to deny that paying ransom to terrorists for German hostages only encourages them to take other hostages and then kill them later when the ransom is not paid.
Zahlte Deutschland Lösegeld? Does a bear scheißt in the woods?
Putin-Understanders: “Warmonger! Warmonger! Stop the Nazis in Ukraine!”
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier: “The world does not consist of peace angels on one side and villains on the other. The world is unfortunately more complicated than that. And thank God there are still a few people out there who address this complexity and look for ways out of the crisis in Ukraine.”
“Dieses Maß an Hass und Dummheit, das mir auf dieser Veranstaltung entgegenschallte, hat mich in einem so hohen Maße empört, dass diese Rede so zustande kam, wie sie zustande kam.”
