Iraqi Christians Flee Islamic Terror, Get Rejected For Asylum By German-Muslim Immigration Employee

What is wrong with the German people.

Open Doors defines “persecution” as:

Christian persecution is any hostility experienced from the world as a result of one’s identification as a Christian.  From verbal harassment to hostile feelings, attitudes and actions, Christians in areas with severe religious restrictions pay a heavy price for their faith.   Beatings, physical torture, confinement, isolation, rape, severe punishment, imprisonment, slavery, discrimination in education and employment, and even death are just a few examples of the persecution they experience on a daily basis.

A tragic part of Christian persecution in the Middle East is those who have fled, find the persecution resumes in the West.  Christian fleeing finds Muslims placed in positions of power in Europe.  The gatekeepers are the same ones they are fleeing.

German broadcaster Welt24 reports, that a few days ago, German politician Wolfgang Bosbach met a Christian Iraqi family in Nordrhein-Westphalia (his constituency), who had recently applied for asylum in Germany.

Bosbach heard them tell how they had fled their country for fear of jihadist violence. Eventually, they reached the part of their story, in which they filled in their asylum application, in one of the foreign offices of the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). There, they faced a BAMF employee with a headscarf, who was going to decide whether or not they, Christians, would get protected status.

Last year, 97.000 Iraqis submitted an application for asylum in Germany. In January, 64.6% of Iraqi asylum applications were successful. The family that Bosbach met however, was rejected, and they told him they felt they were at a disadvantage because of the official who handled their case. Bosbach understood their reasoning:

“I understand the applicants’ concern that their application may not have been decided upon solely on objective and prejudice-free considerations, (…) when they are Christians telling a headscarf-wearing Muslima that they have suffered persecution by Muslims.”

To Bosbach, it doesn’t matter so much, whether or not the official in question really was prejudiced, but merely that “the applicants have reason to fear that their application might not be objectively decided.” And Bosbach is of the opinion that this fear

“is not entirely ungrounded. Therefore, I cannot understand, why only Muslims in BAMF get to decide whether or not Christians, who fled from radical Muslims, get the right to stay in the Federal Republic of Germany.”

The Ministery of Internal Affairs meanwhile, appears to agree with the BAMF. It simply does not consider the headscarf, unlike the Christian cross, to be “a religious symbol in and of itself.” Only in context can it have a comparable meaning. And even that is not considered a problem, as there is no law or regulation against the wearing of religious symbols by civil servants.  Gatestone

Merkel Offers Millions In Cash Handouts For Migrants To Return Home

Election year in Germany.

Angela Merkel will offer cash handouts worth millions of pounds for migrants to leave Germany in an effort to silence criticism of her ‘open-door’ border policy.

In a highly-embarrassing U-turn over the ill-fated plan, which saw 1.2million migrants flock to the country, Mrs Merkel has now vowed to send many of them home.

The German chancellor agreed a package of measures to speed up the deportation process for an estimated 450,000 migrants who have been rejected asylum.

The controversial plan, which marks a significant toughening of previous proposals, includes a £76million scheme that will offer migrants cash incentives to leave Germany voluntarily.

Many will see the move as a desperate attempt for Miss Merkel to claw back support ahead of her challenging re-election bid in September.

Criticism of her decision to leave Germany’s borders open and welcome all refugees during Europe’s migration crisis in 2015 has led to a surge in support for anti-immigrant parties.  DailyMail

Nigerian ‘Refugee’ Kills 22-Year-Old Woman Volunteering At Refugee Center

Another life lost.

Swiss police have yesterday arrested a 27-year-old Nigerian asylum seeker who is suspected of stabbing a young woman to death in the German town of Ahaus. Following the brutal murder this weekend, the refugee had fled to Switzerland.

The fatal knife attack took place on Sunday night when the 22-year-old victim, named as Soopika P., was stabbed several times in the head, chest, and neck. Shortly after, she died in the hospital.

After the killing, the Germans put out a Europe-wide arrest warrant, leading to the capture of the Nigerian national in the city of Basel. “Today’s arrest of the suspect in Switzerland is a quick success,” the German Justice Ministry commented. Germany has asked Switzerland to extradite the 27-year-old, who will be interrogated following his return.

According to Bild, Soopika P. comes from an Indian background, although earlier reports mention her family originating in Sri Lanka. The woman was voluntarily working with asylum seekers in a center in her hometown of Ahaus where she may have met the attacker. The prosecutor confirmed that the Nigerian “had been trying to contact the woman” in the weeks preceding the stabbing.  Gatestone

Over 1,000 Police Officers In Anti-Terror Raid In Central Germany

1,100 police officers to arrest 16, must be a no go zone.  Too little too late, but a good start anyhow.  It is an election year in Germany.

Some 1,100 German police officers conducted surprise raids on 54 flats, mosques, and industrial facilities in a large-scale operation that nabbed 16 terrorist suspects on Wednesday, including a recruiter and human trafficker linked to Islamic State.

Today’s operation in the central German state of Hesse followed a separate night raid in Berlin on Tuesday that led to the detention of three suspects with alleged links to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), local media reports.

Sixteen suspects from 16 to 46 years old were detained in several cities, including Frankfurt, Offenbach, and Darmstadt. They are being investigation for having possible links to Islamic State, according to Bild RT

Berlin

Three suspects with alleged links to the Islamic State terrorist group have been arrested in Berlin. Prior to the arrests – a mosque, which Christmas market attacker Anis Amri frequented – was raided, according to media reports.

Berlin police arrested three people late Tuesday, the Bild newspaper reported, citing the prosecutor’s office.

German security agencies are reportedly investigating an alleged “state-threatening” offence, however it remained unclear whether the suspects had any concrete plans to carry out an attack in Berlin. All of them are being investigated on suspicion of radicalism and links to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorist group.RT

Advance Planning Of Migration Wave Into Germany

What is Merkel’s agenda?  Does she want to destabilize Germany and the EU and destroy the economy of Germany and the EU?

Is the German Chancellor a Russian agent (interesting read and food for thought)?   German industry “has strong ties to both Russia and Iran.”  Merkel has made Germany dependent on “Russian gas and oil by terminating Germany’s nuclear energy program.” Now the migrant invasion.  What is Merkel’s agenda?

The migration wave was planned in advance.

Part of an article in the Polish news portal Dziennik.pl.

It describes the experience of a Polish couple who purchased a hotel in Bavaria, only to be forced to sell it to the German government as “refugee” housing.

The interesting piece of information in this story is the government order to acquire mass housing for migrants three years before Chancellor Angela Merkel invited in the entire third world.

When they bought the 200-year-old house in an idyllic Bavarian village, they thought they had found themselves in a paradise. They wanted to turn the house into a hotel, with its own bakery, coffee shop, and a restaurant. It was in a village that was extremely popular with tourists. Now nobody goes there any longer. All the hotels and most large houses were turned into refugees shelters, and arson became a common occurrence. The media don’t mention it, however. Before their very eyes Germany was turning into a Muslim country: thefts, vandalism, and rubbish everywhere became the norm.

When they first began renovation of the largest house in town, they thought it would prosper, but around 2011 Angela Merkel changed her policies. Continue reading Advance Planning Of Migration Wave Into Germany

German Court: Torching A Synagogue Is Not Anti-Semitism, It Is Just An Act To ‘Critiize Israel’

Being critical of Israel is not anti-semitic.   Merging together criticism of Israel policies and torching a random synagogue in Germany is anti-Semitic.

This is the second time that synagogue was burned.  The first time was during Kristallnacht in 1938.

Violence and vandalism is now justified in modern Germany.

A German regional court in the city of Wuppertal affirmed a lower court decision last Friday stating that a violent attempt to burn the city’s synagogue by three men in 2014 was a justified expression of criticism of Israel’s policies.Johannes

Johannes Pinnel, a spokesman for the regional court in Wuppertal, outlined the court’s decision in a statement.Three German Palestinians sought to

Three German Palestinians sought to torch the Wuppertal synagogue with Molotov cocktails in July, 2014.  The local Wuppertal court panel said in its 2015 decision that the three men wanted to draw “attention to the Gaza conflict” with Israel. The court deemed the attack not to be motivated by antisemitism…

The court sentenced the three men – the 31-year-old Mohamad E., the 26 year-old Ismail A. and the 20-year-old Mohammad A.—to suspended sentences. The men tossed self-made Molotov cocktails at the synagogue.  German courts frequently decline to release the last names of criminals to protect privacy.

The attack caused €800 damage to the synagogue. The original synagogue in Wuppertal was burned by Germans during the Kristallnacht pogroms in 1938.  JPost

“Israel provides anti-Semites convenient cover for their anti-Semitism. But that doesn’t mean their hatred for Israel isn’t hatred for Jews, or vice versa.”

Burning a synagogue to raise awareness rather than thanks to Jew-hatred makes perfect sense: by this logic – after all, Israel is a Jewish state, Israel is bad, Jews live abroad and therefore are emissaries of Israel whether or not they agree with particular Israeli actions, and therefore attacking Jews is the same as attacking an Israeli ambassador.

In reality, of course, this justifies any attack on any Jew at any time. It’s the same anti-Semitic rationale pursued by the Iranian government when they sponsor terrorist attacks against random synagogues abroad. It’s an excuse for genocide: collective responsibility for the actions of a state to which you don’t even belong. DailyWire

Berlin Terrorist Amri Gunned Down By Italian Police In Shootout In Milan

Terrorist Amri’s Path to Germany. Daily Mail Image

The Tunisian, on the run for four days after murdering 12 people in a lorry attack in Berlin, rants about ‘crusader’ airstrikes and vows to ‘slaughter infidels like pigs’ in the two-minute clip, published by Islamic State’s news agency Amaq.

Speaking on a bridge in the north of the city, Amri can be seen wearing a dark jacket and with headphones in his ears as he warns ‘infidels’ he will ‘hunt them down’ and pledges allegiance to ISIS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Hours before the video emerged, he was shot dead in Milan having pulled a gun from his backpack and screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he shot at two police officers carrying out a routine ID check.

The 24-year-old ISIS fanatic was stopped after arriving in the suburb of Sesto San Giovanni in the northern Italian city of Milan at about 3am local time.

Two officers asked him for ID documents, at which point Amri ‘immediately’ pulled a gun from his backpack and shouted ‘police b******s’ as he shot one in the shoulder.

A firefight ensued with Amri cowering behind a car as he tried to flee, but the extremist was shot and killed by the second officer – a trainee who had only been in the job a few months. Witnesses said the two policemen had then crouched over Amri in a bid to keep him alive, but the Tunisian died after ten minutes.

Schengen Area (26 countries allows its  free movement in and out of the Schengen area – no internal border controls.)

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage said Amri’s apparent ability to travel from Germany to Italy showed that the Schengen system – which allows border-free movement between 26 European states – is ‘a risk to public safety’ and should be scrapped.

‘If the man shot in Milan is the Berlin killer, then the Schengen area is proven to be a risk to public safety,’ said Mr Farage. ‘It must go.’  DailyMail

Berlin Caves: Closes Christmas Markets After Terror Attack

German Minister of the Interior Thomas De Maiziere:  “No matter what we continue to learn about the exact background and motives of the perpetrators, we can and we must not let them take away our freedom,”

The terrorist just did take away your freedom, with the closing of Christmas markets in Berlin they are also changing your culture.

Berlin is home to around 60 Christmas markets, with more than 150 total in Germany. Many of the markets are located in public areas with minimal security. German officials added some increased security during last year’s market season in response to the multiple terrorist attacks in Paris in November.

Christmas markets in other regions of Germany will remain open, with increased security measures as needed. Authorities placed massive concrete blocks around Striezelmarkt, one of Germany’s oldest Christmas markets located in Dresden, in an apparent attempt to prevent a similar attack.

Germany’s markets are a remarkably popular tourist destination, attracting crowds from across the globe. Their popularity also makes them a target of opportunity for terrorist organizations, which prompted the U.S. Department State to issue a travel alert to U.S. citizens traveling to Germany in November.

Despite closing the Berlin markets, German Minister of the Interior Thomas De Maiziere insisted that such an attack should not curtail Germany freedom.

“No matter what we continue to learn about the exact background and motives of the perpetrators, we can and we must not let them take away our freedom,” said de Maiziere in a statement.  DailyCaller

Tunisian Asylum Seeker Wanted For Berlin Massacre

Unreal!

Germany letting in hordes of unskilled, under-educated, fighting age violent young men raised to hate Western culture is not working out.

Law enforcement sources told CBS News that police are searching for Anis Amri, a native of Tunisia. The sources said Amri left personal documents in the truck that rammed into the market on Monday, killing 12 people and injuring nearly 50 others. German media outlets have identified the Tunisian man as an asylum seeker who was registered in the North Rhine-Westphalia in Western Germany. CBSNews

A Tunisian terror suspect accused of Monday’s Berlin truck attack which killed 12 people spent four years in an Italian jail for burning down a school.

Anis Amri, 23, from Tataouine, Tunisia left his home seven years ago according to his father and travelled to Europe as an illegal immigrant.

Amri, who has a €100,000 reward on his head, spent four years in an Italian jail and according to his father moved to Germany last year.

Since his arrival in Germany, Amri was arrested at least three times and was due to be deported.

Despite being an ISIS supporter known to have received weapons training, German authorities allowed Anis Amri to slip through their clutches time after time.

It is understood, Amri has used at least six different names under three different nationalities.

The 23-year-old even tried to recruit an accomplice for a terror plot – and again the authorities knew about it – but still he remained at large, it has emerged.

He had been under covert surveillance for much of the time since he arrived in Germany, security sources confirmed.

Berlin prosecutors announced they had launched an investigation into Amri on March 14 after receiving a tip-off from federal security agencies. DailyMail

Tunisia would not take him back as they challenged his status as a Tunisia citizen.

The man suspected of Monday’s deadly attack on a Christmas market in Germany was arrested in August but released by a judge, it has been revealed. Not only that, but the man was a known terrorism suspect who avoided deportation specifically because he lacked valid identification.

Identity papers for a Tunisian man, currently identified as Anis Amri, were found in the wreckage of a truck that smashed through a Christmas market, killing 12 people and leaving dozens more injured. DailyCaller

Not A Lone Wolf

German authorities also say the Tunisian man had ties to a notorious group of local ISIS sympathizers led by a man named Abu Walaa, who was arrested in November alongside four others accused of operating an ISIS recruitment network.

Der Spiegel, citing local officials, said that Amri and Abu Walaa were in “regular contact.”

If that’s the case, what first was considered to be a “lone wolf” attack in Germany—the first successful terrorist operation there since the 9/11 attacks—could instead be the work of an ISIS cell DailyBeast

Terror Attack: Truck Plows Into A Crowded Christmas Market In Berlin, Several Dead, At Least 50 Injured

President-elect Donald Trump issued a statement on the Berlin attack:

“Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of today’s horrifying terror attack in Berlin. Innocent civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday. ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad. These terrorists and their regional and worldwide networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth, a mission we will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.” yahoo

German police arrested the wrong man, the Berlin Christmas market truck terrorist is still at large.  The truck used in the Berlin attack was hijacked by terrorists, the driver of the truck was found dead inside the truck. The terrorist used the 25-tonne truck to mow down and kill 12 people – and injure 48 others at 40mph in a busy Christmas market.

At 9.35pm police announced the arrest of someone in connection with the attack – believed to be the driver of the truck.

The truck was from Gdansk in Poland – some 80 miles from Berlin.  The vehicle maneuvered from Budapester Strasse onto the area outside the Memorial Church before ploughing into the crowd.

Sabrina Glinz, an American tourist, is now locked in her hotel after a number of buildings in the area were placed on lockdown.

Watching the scene unfold from the 15th floor, she told Sky News: ‘You just keep seeing people getting loaded into ambulances and it doesn’t seem to end.

‘Just the white sheets covering them.’

She added: ‘The street that he has to have gone in you have do a u-turn on the street to turn around and instead of doing a u-turn he turned right directly into the market.

‘There was absolutely no way he could have accidentally, he went straight into it then veered to the left and is now back onto the main street were the truck is resting.

‘He went back to the beginning were it was busiest and then just careered through the buildings. DailyMail

Police said they believed the incident was a deliberate attack, news agency DPA reports.

The truck drove into a Christmas market on Breitscheidplatz in the central Charlottenburg district., the local Berliner Zeitung newspaper reports. TheLocal

At least nine people have been killed and more than 50 injured after a lorry ploughed 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 Christmas market on Breitscheidplatz Square near the Kurfuerstendamm Avenue in west Berlin.

According to local reports the driver has not yet been apprehended, and police have now launched a manhunt…

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

Tourist Emma Rushton, from England, tweeted from the scene: ‘Lorry just ploughed through Christmas market in #berlin.

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

Germany Threatens to Fine Facebook Over Not Deleting ‘Hate Speech’ Fast Enough

You are free to say whatever you wish, except if we don’t approve of it.  Online anti-refugee posts have lead to offline visits by German, Dutch, and Scotish police.

German officials are stepping up their criticism of Facebook, saying the social network is doing too little to stop hate speech and could face stiff fines unless it deletes illegal content faster.

In an interview published Friday, Justice Minister Heiko Maas said his ministry was checking whether it would be possible to make social networking sites legally liable for illegal posts.

“Of course in the end, we also have to think about fines, if other measures fail to work,” Maas told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper. “That would be a strong incentive to act quickly.”

Germany has seen a sharp increase in vitriolic posts on social media in recent years amid a heated public debate over the influx of more than a million migrants since the start of 2015.

The country has laws against speech deemed to be racist, defamatory or inciting violence — a response to Germany’s Nazi legacy. But authorities have struggled with the deluge of often anonymous postings on foreign-owned websites. BreitBart

Maria Ladenburger Murder – Family Ask For Refugee Charity Donations In Tribute

Misguided. It seems the parents are putting ‘refugees’ before their own daughter and other victims.  Their actions diminish what happened to their daughter.

The family of an EU official’s teenage daughter who was allegedly raped and murdered by an Afghan migrant in Germany has asked for well-wishers to donate money to a refugee charity.

Medical student Maria Ladenburger, who had also taken time out to help asylum seekers as a volunteer, was found dead in a river in the south-western German university city of Freiburg in October.

The first picture has since emerged of Hussein K., the 17-year-old Afghan asylum seeker who was arrested on suspicion of the rape and murder after a hair matching the alleged perpetrator was found at the crime scene.

As the 19-year-old student’s family tries to come to terms with their loss, they have asked for donations to be made to an organisation that aids refugees.

Maria, 19, worked in her spare time in the ancient university city of Freiburg helping out the migrants in various shelters and homes. But in October, as she cycled home after a party, she was ambushed, raped and then drowned in a river.  DailyMail

German stats show surge in sex crime rate around refugee centers.  Coincidence?

‘The police statistics show a staggering 158.3 percent increase in the number of non-Germans suspected of committing crime, including asylum seekers, compared to the previous year.’

A group of German activists have carried out a study which found that rates of sexual offenses increase significantly in the vicinity of asylum reception centers, Germany’s Journalistenwatch news portal reported.

A group of German activists called XY Einzelfall have has used Google Maps to establish a link between the presence of asylum seekers and sexual violence, Germany’s Journalistenwatch news portal reported.

The analysts used reports from local media, mainstream media and the police to compile a map of crimes across Germany, including sexual assault, attempted rape, robbery and criminal assault. The map shows the town in which the attack happened but it doesn’t mark the exact spot.

These crimes were then compared with another map showing the location of Germany’s asylum reception centers.

Comparison of the two maps appears to reveal correlation between the presence of an asylum reception center and the proportion of sex offences in the vicinity of the center.  MuslimStatistics
