Terrorist acted to punish Germans for ‘obstructing Islam’

Terrorist acted to punish Germans for ‘obstructing Islam’

The suicide bomber who injured 15 people in a yesterday at a music festival in Ansbach, Germany, left behind a video in which he pledged allegiance to ISIS and promised to carry out an attack ‘as an act of revenge against Germans, because they obstruct Islam’.

According to this report, the 27-year-old Syrian said the attack would be committed in the name of Allah as retaliation for the killing of Muslims. The bomber, who has not been named, died when he detonated a bomb outside the the Ansbach Open music festival last night night, where about 2,500 were in attendance,

The ISIS-affiliated media group Amaq also claimed responsibility for the attack.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann told a press conference today:

I believe that after this video we cannot doubt that this attack was an Islamist terror attack.

Four of the 15 victims were seriously injured, according to Ansbach Mayor Carla Seidel.

The attack has further rattled the German public following a week of violence in southern Germany that began July 18, when an immigrant teen, apparently inspired by ISIS, stabbed passengers on a train in Wurzburg in Bavaria.

That was followed by a shooting spree Friday in which nine people were killed in the Bavarian state capital, Munich, before a Syrian asylum seeker killed a woman in Reutlingen, in the neighboring southern German state of Baden-Wurttemberg, on Sunday, hours ahead of the Ansbach attack.

The wave of violence has fueled criticism of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s welcoming stance toward immigrants, with the hashtag #Merkelsommer, or “Merkel summer,” circulating on social media.

Germany accepted more than a million asylum seekers last year, and some Germans have expressed fears that terrorists might have entered the country among them, or that disaffected youths among the refugees could be susceptible to radicalisation.

The attacker was a rejected asylum seeker known for petty criminal offenses who was due to be deported to Bulgaria, officials said Monday.

  1. Just how many more alienated, marginalised and radicalised ‘lone-wolves’ are there on the loose in Germany? I do hope no far-right extremist attempts to put a bullet in Mama Merkel’s head. Let this violence cease forthwith! We must all learn to live together in peace, love and harmony or mass civil unrest will surely ensue and the Rhine will foam with much blood. Time for yet another pink gin to calm my somewhat frayed nerves.

    Welcome to the new normal.

    Time for a new strategy but I don’t know what is might be. The current strategy appears to be that the killer Islamists murder, torture, threaten, flaunt their religious beliefs and gun down crowds at random and threaten anyone who does not accede to the incredible beliefs.

    The response seems to be toleration, pleas for moderation and not being provoked and a readiness to ignore so much that goes on unchecked e.g. FGM, abuse of women, ranting Islamist preachers. And the assertion that only a minority behave like this.

    It is a great game for the extremists who play with no rules whereas their opponents stick to civilised values and what increasingly seems an indecent acceptance by politicians about what is happening.

  4. It must be truly nightmarish to be a ‘one-world-no-borders’ liberal-left multi-culturalist nowadays and to see all one’s hopes and dreams unravelling at such an alarming rate. Still, the left are incapable of error and thus can never learn from the mistakes they cannot make, and will therefore consider themselves, as always, entirely blameless–no matter what may transpire in the coming decades. Brexit, Trump, the rise of the ‘populist’ right throughout the Western world…..who is responsible for these calamities and horrors, and where will it all end, eh?

    What on earth do these demented islamic “refugees” expect to find in a civilised non islamic country.
    What thought processes do they engage in to become horrified that there is no islam in Germany save in peoples’ heads.
    if any one refugee wants islam, why come to Germany, then get offended when they cannot see islam there (what ever form that is supposed to be for them,) and then engage in atrocious reprehensible terror that involves killing murdering and maiming innocent people that aren’t islamic.
    ‘Obstruct islam” demented beasts like this are doing a pretty good job themselves : such a beautiful tolerant religion.

    “Germany accepted more than a million asylum seekers last year, and some Germans have expressed fears that terrorists might have entered the country among them, or that disaffected youths among the refugees could be susceptible to radicalisation.”

    Or,Muslims in 2016 might do what Muslims have done with great regularity for over one thousand years prior. Who can say?

    I can say. Goodbye, Germany. You did it to yourself.

  7. RussellW says:

    The ‘lone wolf’ explanation seems to be well past its use-by-date. The police often arrest the friends and relatives of these ‘lone wolves’, so ‘wolf pack’ seems a more appropriate term.
    How many more Germans are going to pay with their lives because of Merkel’s attempt at social engineering?

    Paul,
    Muslims from majority Muslim nations don’t have any concept of secular, liberal democracy , they are the ruling caste and non-Muslims are Dhimmi slaves.

    There is absolutely no prospect of peaceful assimilation of muslims into civilised democratic secular society. Accepting a huge influx of stupefied beggared muslims into Europe is nothing less than than allowing the enemy to freely infiltrate and embed its troops, who sneer at ideals like the Geneva convention, into infidel territory. Muslims have copied the Trojans, not with a wooden horse, but with the invisibility cloak of faux refugeeism. It’s a calculated and planned invasion of Europe by a hateful vengeful barbaric death cult who have sent droves of people into Europe hidden amongst which are battalions of ruthless murderous shitehawk cutthroats who are more than willing to forfeit their worthless shitty lives for the promise of raping all the prepubescent virgin girls they can handle. In the town where you live there are right now the guerilla soldiers of allah quietly and patiently sharpening their blades, clicking rounds of ammunition into AK47 magazines and praying five times a day for the command to go onto the streets and kill as many infidels as possible. We are in big trouble now. its going to be a ruthless dirty war waged on your street by fanatical barbaric lawless terrorists of allah who look upon you as infidels only worthy of extermination and annihilation.

  9. I feel sick. says:

    Can you imagine living in a place where any self righteous bored mind addled uncivilised halfwit shitehawk unemployable looser can swagger down the high street with a bunch of his mates all waving assault rifles I the air looking for respect and trouble. Well that’s what is heading our way … In fact it’s already here waiting behind the front doors of ordinary houses all over Europe right now.

    Perhaps we should build a wall…oh, no, this is the Freethinker site – I’d never get away with a suggestion like that!

    Make those men’s skin tones a wee bit lighter and switch out the headdress for “Make America Great Again”hats and it would be easily mistaken for a right wing, gun clingin, hate filled rally in States 🙁 My heart weeps for humanity …

  12. L.Long says:

    Still they don’t learn! Stop calling these guys terrorists! Doing so gives them power and prestige. If the news was ‘another criminal murdered people’ would ISIS take credit? As by doing so they claim…”Yes we support criminals murdering innocent people”. That does not sound as nice as “we are killing evil satanic invaders”.

    See ….Told you so.

    I estimate the next Islamic atrocity on mainland Europe will be perpetrated within 24 hours.

    Piss be upon the prophet and all his werewolves … And there are more of them than you think skulking about your neighbourhood lusting after kuffar girls and hungry for the sight of kuffar blood, body parts, viscera, limbs, severed heads and bodies littering the streets of Europe.

    Merkel was a complete idiot in allowing over 1 million people to enter Germany without even the minimum degree of checks as to who they were, where they were from and why they were entering Germany.
    She never consulted on her new policy with any other EU countries, even though a number of them were located between Germany and where they would be coming from.
    As far as I know, she never consulted our Prime Minister and gained his approval for her new migrant policy.
    No wonder people in this country ended up voting Leave.
    What to do about where we are now?
    There is only one thing to do.
    All the NATO countries must work together 24 hours of every day to totally and utterly destroy ISIS.
    Everything short of nuclear weapons should be used.
    Only then will the impetus behind attacks on civilians on the European mainland be brought to a halt.
    I am a humanist, secularist and freethinker but that does not mean I am not prepared to meet an existential threat like ISIS and to terminate them with extreme prejudice.
