In Germany? To “prevent potential perpetrators of violence” from entering the country?
It’s far too late for that, I’m afraid. And since when does Germany have borders?
Germany to introduce some border checks during G7 summit – Germany says it will temporarily introduce some border controls as the country gets ready to host the Group of Seven summit later this month in the Bavarian Alps
“The controls are intended to prevent potential perpetrators of violence from entering German territory, the statement said, adding that ”travelers must therefore expect to be subject to checks during this period.”
German authorities are still puzzled by the mysterious deaths of three women who were killed in a knife attack.
They do know that “someone with a migrant background” and his knife were involved in the killings but because neither this someone with a migrant background nor his religion with a migrant background can be held responsible for such unpleasant realities they are now focussing in on the knife itself. “What is needed is more effectiv knife control legislation,” is most likely what German politicians are about to announce.
Germany: Würzburg holds vigil for knife attack victims – At an emotional memorial service, Würzburg mourned the deaths of three women who were killed in a knife attack. With the motive still unclear, officials urged against responding to the attack with “hate and revenge.”
Germany brings home ‘Islamic State’ brides, children from Syrian camps – Humanitarian reasons have been cited for flying home several ‘IS’ brides and children from internment in Syria. At the height of the civil war, the women allegedly traveled to join the Islamist militia…
Leonora went to Raqqa, then a IS stronghold, and became the third wife of Martin L., a German in IS’ notorious intelligence network. For a time she held a Yazidi woman and two children as slaves in her apartment until selling them.
“Most likely.” It’s not like Islamic extremism is actually responsible itself.
Germany: Dresden knife attack likely motivated by Islamic extremism – German police say they have arrested an asylum seeker suspected of killing one person and wounding another in Dresden two weeks ago. Prosecutors are now treating the deadly stabbing as a possible terrorist attack.
German of the day: Herumeiern. To “egg around,” as to walk on eggshells. That is, to pussy-foot (with an emphasis on pussy): To act in a cautious or non-committal way.
We’ve actually got two today: Islamistisch motiviert and Psychiatrie.
Islamistisch motiviert means Islamist motivated and Psychiatrie means psychiatry. You know, Islamist motivated like the attack with the car in Berlin yesterday? And psychiatry as in admitted to psychiatric care like the Islamist who carried it out?
A pattern is developing here. Islamists who regularly do this type of thing in Germany are admitted to psychiatric care while the people who let them in are allowed to continue holding office as if they were sane.
German government bans Hezbollah — Interior Ministry – Authorities have designated Hezbollah a terrorist organization and banned its activity on German soil. Police are currently conducting raids on four associations linked to the Islamist group…
Banning Hezbollah could strain relations between Germany and Iran. However, Iran is dependent on good relations with Germany and the European Union, exemplified most recently by the use of Instex, an EU-Iran trading mechanism designed to skirt US-imposed sanctions and export medical supplies to the pandemic-hit country.
“Police measures are underway in several federal states concurrently. In times of crisis, the rule of law is able to act.”
Let’s pretend it’s not what everyone else immediately knows it is. Until we’re forced to admit what it is a few days later, officially. It’s some bizarre new game of hide and seek government officials are playing all across Europe these days.
Similar to the way French officials behaved after last week’s knifing “incident” in Paris, German officials too now bend over backwards seeking any explanation they can find to explain Monday’s truck “incident” in Limburg – other than the most obvious one. Why is it so hard to admit that you have just witnessed yet another terror attack from someone Angela Merkel inexplicably invited to the country in 2015? Could it be that these authorities have a guilty conscience? Better late than never, I guess.
German authorities are investigating a man who drove a stolen lorry into a line of cars in Limburg in the western state of Hesse, injuring eight people.
The 32-year-old had pulled the driver of the vehicle from his cabin at a red light before using the lorry to plough into eight cars waiting at a light near the town’s central railway station at about 5.20pm (1620 BST) on Monday.
The man, a Syrian national named as Omar AI by the national broadcaster ARD, was arrested at the scene.
“My thoughts are with the injured victims of the accident and their families.”
Bosnian arrested in Germany in connection with Paris Bataclan attacks – Dresden prosecutors say a Bosnian man linked to the 2015 attacks on the Bataclan nightclub in Paris, is under arrest in Germany’s state of Saxony-Anhalt. An extradition to Belgium is being considered.
Den Namen des Verdächtigen gab die Staatsanwaltschaft mit Adis A. an. Ob auch die internationale Suche wegen der Beteiligung am Terroranschlag mit Waffen zu tun hat, konnte zunächst kein Behördensprecher sagen.
