They were robbing churches to get money to send to the Islamic State. The glories of multiculturalism! Time for German Church leaders, both Catholic and Lutheran, to open up more “dialogue” with Muslims. That will fix this problem right up!
“German police arrest suspected IS supporters, raid properties,” Reuters, November 12, 2014 (thanks to Lookmann):
BERLIN (Reuters) – German police arrested several men suspected of supporting militant groups, including Islamic State, and raided numerous properties in a large operation against alleged radicals, federal prosecutors said on Wednesday.
Some 240 police officers took part in the sweep, which targeted a network believed to support Islamists in Syria.
A 58-year-old Pakistani man, Mirza Tamoor B., was arrested on suspicion that he smuggled two fighters from Germany to Syria, while a 31-year-old German, Kais B. O., was detained on suspicion of recruiting three other potential jihadists and helping them to travel to Syria, prosecutors said.
The two are also believed to have sent more than 3,000 euros ($3,700) to support IS and other radical groups.
Local media reported that several other men were arrested on more minor charges, including robbing churches and schools to provide money for Islamists….
German intelligence authorities estimate at least 450 people have left Germany for Syria and around 150 have returned. Many are being criminally investigated.
