The EU immigrant mayhem thread

Postby rowland » 25 Jul 2016, 02:51

About time to split this off from Death Watch and give it its own thread.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/syrian-asyl ... d=26884880

BERLIN - Police say a Syrian asylum-seeker killed a woman with a machete and wounded two others outside a bus station in the southwestern German city of Reutlingen before being arrested.

Police spokesman Bjoern Reusch said in a statement Sunday that witnesses said the 21-year-old man, who was known to police, was having an argument with the woman before attacking her about 4:30 p.m. Police say the motive behind the attack is still not clear.

The attack comes as Germany is on edge following a rampage at a Munich mall on Friday night in which nine people were killed, and an ax attack on a train a week ago by a young Afghan migrant that left five wounded in southern Germany.

Big government is for those who can't handle freedom. Political correctness is for those who can't handle reality.

Gun-free zones are where the gun violence happens. Ban gun-free zones before many more get killed. Also, gun violence in Europe is as bad as in US, and getting worse.

The most bigoted people in the world insist that they are the most open-minded, the cruelest people in the world insist that they are the most compassionate, and the most illogical insist that they are the most logical.

Just because Al Gore says there's a planetary emergency doesn't mean there's a planetary emergency. And just because somebody says it's science doesn't mean it's science.

The Syrian refugee who killed himself and wounded 15 people in a suicide bombing at a German music festival on Sunday used his cell phone to record a pledge of allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during the attack, officials said.

Carrying a bomb-laden backpack, the 27-year-old suspect tried to enter the concert at Eugene’s Wine Bar around 10 p.m. Sunday in the southern city of Ansbach, but was rejected by security personnel because he didn’t have a ticket, officials said.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, then detonated the explosives. Officials said he had twice attempted suicide and was currently under psychiatric care.

Lots of murderous crazies in certain parts of the world for some reason.

I don't know about "certain parts of the world." Sometimes it seems like a heavenly dog whistle has gone off and crazies everywhere are heeding the call:
Nineteen people were feared dead and as many as 24 others wounded after an attack by a knife-wielding man at a facility for the disabled in Japan early on Tuesday, NHK reported.

Police in Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture, about 25 miles (40 km) southwest of Tokyo have arrested a man in his 20s, Japanese media reported.

They said staff called police at 2.30 a.m. local time with reports of a man armed with a knife on the grounds of the Tsukui Yamayuri Garden facility. Kyodo said the man had turned himself into a police station.

Asahi Shimbun reported that the suspect was quoted by police as saying "I want to get rid of the disabled from this world."

Fifteen people were confirmed dead while four were in a state of cardiac arrest, the reports said.

I still feel safer in Europe than I do in America, and safer than I do here in Malaysia. Anyway, I'll be moving to Paris within the next year so you guys can benefit from an one-the-ground report of the Euro scene as opposed to the inchoate postings of rowland.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

I will look forward to your reports from the banlieues.

Also, why don't you feel safe in Malaysia? Its intentional homicide rate is actually lower than that of Taiwan. (2.3 per 100,000 vs 3.0 per 100,000)

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/07 ... ench-town/

Despite a huge police presence, Saturday marked a fifth night of violence in the Val d’Oise district after the death of Adama Traoré in police custody on Tuesday. During demonstrations against Mr. Traoré’s death, protesters, some wielding baseball bats, torched cars, petrol pumps, bins, and piles of rubbish. Buildings were also set alight, including a large warehouse in Persan, near Beaumont-sur-Oise.

The windows of municipal buildings such as public libraries were smashed, marchers shot homemade mortars and buckshot at police, and threw incendiary projectiles during the protests, which left several police wounded.


All because...

Mr. Traoré’s autopsy report stated he died from a “very serious” infection that had affected multiple organs. The 24-year-old’s family do not accept its findings, which include that the coroner found “no traces of violence” on his body, and they have requested that a second autopsy be carried out.

In a press conference, Assa Traoré, Adama’s sister, had said: “My brother was killed, my brother suffered violence.”

Mr. Traoré was taken to the police station after a fight broke out when police attempted to arrest his brother, who is suspected of involvement in an extortion case.


Imported thug culture. And ineffective police. This is why they can't have nice things.

A Norman invasion...

http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/693 ... du-Rouvray

The hostage, said to be 84-year-old Father Jacques Hamel, was killed by the attackers, who stormed a church in the town of Saint Etienne du Rouvray at around 10am local time (9am UK time).

The knifemen slit his throat after they entered the church by the back door shouting "Allah Akbar", according to local media.


Musn't blame the Muslims, no. How aout blaming the authorities? Is that acceptable?

Security sources said one of the murderers was a convicted terrorist who was being monitored with an electronic tag and should have been living with his parents.

The same source said the church was one of a number of Catholic places of worship on a hitlist, discovered on an ISIS suspect in April 2015 - raising serious questions about France's intelligence agencies.

When Merkel started her immigration invitation to the African/Arab world I quickly came up with a worst-case scenario, which assumes only a minimal organisatoric capability of the IS. What if the IS has 1-5 people in every 5th or 10th Asylum seeker home in Germany? I was thinking of handguns as weapons, but now I understand long meat knives, axes and the like are enough. What if they manage a coordinated attack where all "agents" attack simultaneously?

When I left Germany in 2004 there were 2 asylum seeker homes (each with 100 or more people I guess) in walking distance to my old home. It actually had been 3 during the 90s. Currently there may be 4 or more in such a rural area.

Just image what reading the news will feel like, if there are like 10 or 20 towns and cities mentioned where terror attacks are happening. And what it will feel like if it becomes clear it is more like hundreds of towns and practically the whole country.

Responses of security forces will be soon non-existing, the government would probably go through some warfare procedures and long term consequences would be rather devastating. A cleanup might be almost out of the question as the military may not be employed within the country and the agents could always hide again within the asylum seeker homes - where a warm meal and a bed paid by the taxpayer is waiting for them - until the second attack wave is carried out.

With around 1-2 million young men from IS-infested areas the scenario is quite likely I am afraid.

For a nation whose citizens have certainly spent a great deal of time expressing their moral outrage over US unilateralism, one really struggles with Germany and Merkel. Welcome to 1 million plus immigrants without consulting ANY nation in the EU. Total disregard for the needs of the people of existing EU nations that suffered much due to economic and financial dislocation but plenty to offer non EU members in terms of money, support, etc. Then, a total and humiliating backdown without backing down but essentially (what one reporter called) "prostituting" one''s nation but by paying "the client" to stop the flow of immigrants that you, yourself, called for and welcomed as an opportunity. I really REALLY have to struggle to understand given these capers and mad-cap adventures how anyone in Europe (certainly Germany) can smugly criticize someone like Donald Trump when so many more "respected" leaders and intellectual "bright lights" have gotten us to this scenario all while demanding that there be NO DISCUSSION (verboten!) of cultural or religious differences and what kind of policies might need to be implemented to minimize or deal with predictable results such as these. I really wish one German who used to post regularly on this form in virulent critiques of the US to plan for the aftermath of the invasion of Iraq were here today to share with us high moral smugness regarding how "Germans know best." It would be funny and enjoyable to poke fun in a fit of schadenfreude but none of this is funny at all. And rather than wake up to discuss how or what to do about the problem, most still engage in outraged sanctimoniousness when the subject is even broached. Still some lessons to be learned me thinks. Group think on multiculturalism and "tolerance" are hard to unlearn.
