“Motivated By Islamic Extremism?”

“Most likely.” It’s not like Islamic extremism is actually responsible itself.

Dresden

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.

Achieved?

Germany has took on more than it can handle. And is continuing to do so (400+ per day). That’s what it has achieved.

Germany

Germany: Five years after the refugee crisis, what’s been achieved? – Five years ago, as hundreds of thousands of refugees came to Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel maintained: “We can do it.” How has Germany — and those who sought asylum — managed since then?

…The initial “welcome culture” that Merkel advocated dissipated on New Year’s Eve 2015/16, when women were assaulted by migrants in Cologne’s main railway station.

And then came the Berlin terror attack, foiled terror attacks, all the other crime, disappointment and daily conflicts the German media does its best to ignore. And most Germans just keep on pretending that none of this is really happening. Why? Because Germany is a Moral Superpower? Are Germans that good at denial (see WWII and Communist East Germany)? Maybe it isn’t really happening. If you don’t see it in the news and no one is allowed to express an uncomfortable opinion or inconvenient truth about it maybe it didn’t happen, right? You don’t even need a Big Brother in Germany. Everybody does this voluntarily.

 

German Of The Day: Islamistisch Motiviert

We’ve actually got two today: Islamistisch motiviert and Psychiatrie.

Psycho

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.

“A religiously motivated background cannot be excluded.”

When You Wash Money In Germany

You know it’s going to get washed properly. Germans have this squeaky-clean reputation to live up to, after all.

Wash

It’s the easiest place in Europe to do this kind of thing and everybody who’s anybody in the crime and terror world knows it. I’m sure that will soon change though. Not.

Germany sees record spike in money laundering cases – Germany’s Financial Intelligence Unit says suspected cases of money laundering and terrorist financing jumped by 50% in 2019. The real estate market is especially vulnerable when it comes to suspicious transactions.

“One problem for us is that the prosecution of money laundering in Germany isn’t traditionally well established.”

German Of The Day: Geldwäsche

That means money-laundering.

Money

And Germany in general, Berlin in particular, is a “money-laundering paradise.”

Police in Germany conduct raids on suspected Islamists in Berlin – Berlin police are investigating 12 suspects who are accused of financing terrorism, among other crimes…

Germany’s Police Trade Union welcomed the raids as an example of the result of meticulous investigative work. It is no secret that cash flows from criminal gangs in “our money-laundering paradise” to fund terrorist organizations, the union’s regional deputy head Thomas Spaniel said, according to the German news agency dpa.

Last year, the domestic intelligence agency for the state of Berlin counted 2,170 Islamists in the city, 180 more than the previous year.

Well, That Was Like Pulling Zähne

As in teeth. Better late than never, I guess.

Hisbollah

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.”

When Refugees Go Bad

Oops. Wasn’t supposed to mention that refugee part. It’s not like NBC or any other MSM folks would. That was rude. I’m not worthy.

Terror

Suspected ISIS members plotted attack on U.S. bases, German prosecutors say – Group “had already bought weapons and ammunition” and “one suspect has knowledge how to make explosives,” said State Interior Minister Herbert Reul.

Die fünf Beschuldigten, von denen vier am Mittwoch festgenommen wurden und einer schon länger in Untersuchungshaft sitzt, seien Tadschiken und alle als Flüchtlinge eingereist, sagte Reul.

It’s That German Christmas Feeling

That German Christmas market feeling. That every year at this time of year Christmas market feeling.

Christmas

Holly, wreaths, bells ringing, people screaming, suspicious packages, evacuations, Islamists being arrested…

German police said on Saturday that they had asked visitors to Berlin’s Christmas market at Breitscheidplatz to leave the area after receiving information about suspicious objects.

Beide Männer gehören zur Salafisten-Szene.

No Suspicion Here

Yesterday’s German of the day was Terrorverdact (suspicion of terror) but there was never any suspicion in my mind as to who the Germans got their intelligence from.

Terror

Who else? From evil US-Amerika itself.

US tips off Germany to ‘radical Islamist’ from Syria suspected of planning devastating attack – Police in Germany arrested a “radical Islamist” from Syria on Tuesday after receiving a tip from U.S. intelligence officials that the man was planning an attack.

Prosecutors said the 26-year-old man was planning an attack designed to “kill and injure a maximum number of people,” according to reports.

Erste Hinweise durch ausländischen Geheimdienst?

German Of The Day: Terrorverdacht

That means suspicion of terror.

Syrian

A suspected Islamist from Syria was in arrested in Berlin after getting smart about how to make bombs. What he was doing in Berlin is anybody’s guess. Angela Merkel could not be reached for comment.

This story will now quietly disappear. Hope you enjoyed it while it lasted.

In Berlin ist ein 26-jähriger Syrer in seiner Wohnung im Bezirk Schöneberg wegen eines Terrorverdachts festgenommen worden: Wie die Staatsanwaltschaft Berlin am Dienstagvormittag mitteilte, vollstreckten Beamte des Bundeskriminalamts (BKA) gemeinsam mit der Spezialeinheit GSG 9 einen Haftbefehl sowie einen Durchsuchungsbeschluss. Konkret besteht der Verdacht der Anleitung zur Begehung einer schweren staatsgefährdenden Gewalttat.
