What? He was able to obtain weapons despite Germany’s gun control laws? He didn’t respect those laws? Why, it’s unprecedented! Unheard of! Astonishing!
Anyway, Merkel’s solution: bring in more Muslim migrants. And why not?
Ahmad al-Mohammed and one other of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees.
In February 2015, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. And the Lebanese Education Minister said in September 2015 that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. Meanwhile, 80% of migrants who have come to Europe claiming to be fleeing the war in Syria aren’t really from Syria at all.
So why are they claiming to be Syrian and streaming into Europe, and now the U.S. as well? An Islamic State operative gave the answer when he boasted in September 2015, shortly after the migrant influx began, that among the flood of refugees, 4,000 Islamic State jihadis had already entered Europe. He explained their purpose: “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, inshallah.” These Muslims were going to Europe in the service of that caliphate: “They are going like refugees,” he said, but they were going with the plan of sowing blood and mayhem on European streets. As he told this to journalists, he smiled and said, “Just wait.”
On May 10, 2016, Patrick Calvar, the head of France’s DGSI internal intelligence agency, said that the Islamic State was using migrant routes through the Balkans to get jihadis into Europe.
The suicide of Germany, and of Europe, proceeds apace.
“Germany: Syrian teen scouted attack sites for IS in Berlin,” Associated Press, October 27, 2016:
BERLIN – German prosecutors say a 19-year-old Syrian migrant scouted out potential sites in Berlin for an attack by the Islamic State group….
They allege he offered to act as a middle-man for IS members carrying out an attack in Germany and signaled his willingness to participate in an attack.
Prosecutors said in a statement Thursday that al-M. joined IS in his Syrian home village in mid-2013. He underwent military training and performed guard duties for the group before leaving for Germany in mid-2015.
The suspect was arrested March 22 and charged last week with membership of a foreign terrorist organization and breaking arms control laws.
