Germans Still Waiting For More Effective Knife Control Legislation

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.”

“We Help People In Need At Home”

People in need of more high explosives and new Kalashnikows, for instance.

Germany outlaws Islamist organization Ansaar International – Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has banned the Düsseldorf-based Islamist association on suspicion of financing terrorist groups abroad such as the Palestinian Hamas and Al-Shabaab in Somalia.

“Some aid projects, however, fall directly within the sphere of activity of the terrorist organization in question.”

I’ll Be Home For Christmas

How heartwarming or something.

Heartwarming

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.

You’re Wasting Your Time And Your Money

“Germany’s imams seen as key in combating radicalization.” Right.

Immam

Although “Imam training is in the spotlight of this year’s German Islam Conference. In light of recent terror attacks, Germany’s interior minister said a new training program for German-speaking imams was “money well-spent,” those in the know have something else to report. This may be what German politicians want the German public to believe but don’t ask what Islam critic Hamed Abdel-Samad (Muslim himself) has to say about the “show.”

He has been trying for ten years to make progress addressing issues within this so-called German Islam Conference, particularly those regarding the radicalization of youth and the condition of women, but has repeatedly witnessed how precisely these issues are successfully removed from the agenda – and how its German supporters (and tax payers who finance it) do absolutely nothing about it. Now he has resigned in disgust.

Just in case you were wondering, Hamed Abdel-Samad needs bodyguards – here in Germany – and has needed them for years.

„Doch seit dieser Zeit konnten die Islamverbände alle kritischen Themen, die die kritischen Stimmen auf den Tisch gebracht haben, wie etwa das Thema Radikalisierung von jungen Muslimen oder die Stellung der Frau, aus der Tagesordnung verbannen.“

“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.

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.
